One of the truly frightening things about this upcoming election is that if the worst happens, then Democrats will have complete control over Washington — and our lives. We’ll be thrown headfirst into a complete nanny state whether we like it or not, with high taxes, skyrocketing gas prices, and banned handguns, just to name a few. We’ll creep towards socialism a little at a time, and healthcare will be one of the first things to go. And it won’t matter how angry the American people are. Democrats will want to infuse government into our lives in any way possible.
So what do we have to look forward to? Stuff like this:
A pregnant woman was forced to give birth in a hospital corridor after being turned away from two other hospitals when she went into labour.
Humiliated new mother Emma Johnson gave birth in a hallway at the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath, West Sussex.
She plans to make an official complaint to NHS bosses after staff at two hospitals refused to admit her because there were no beds available.
Miss Johnson and boyfriend Edward Prior, 23, called at their local hospital – the Royal Sussex in Brighton – after she went into labour at 1.15am on Tuesday, but the couple were told there were no beds.
Staff there also advised them that there were no free beds at Worthing Hospital, meaning Miss Johnson had to endure an unconventional and uncomfortable birth on the floor of a corridor at the Princess Royal – 20 miles away from the couple’s Brighton home.
Miss Johnson said today : ‘I feel really cross about it.
‘We could have gone to the Royal Sussex Hospital in Brighton in about 10 minutes and then we wouldn’t have had all this.
‘The staff were nice once we arrived but this shouldn’t have happened in the first place.
‘It was extra stress for me at an already difficult time.’
Mr Prior, who works at an Asda supermarket, added: ‘The midwives all rushed to help but there was no time to do anything before the baby arrived.
‘We only just got there in the nick of time. A few minutes more and it would have been in the car park.
‘It took 40 minutes to get there from Brighton and at one point I thought she was going to have the baby in the car.’
A spokesman for Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust said: ‘We do everything we can to ensure women are able to give birth in a hospital of their choice.
‘We are sorry that this was clearly not Miss Johnson’s experience.
‘Occasionally if a site is very busy we have to ask mums to travel but we do this as infrequently as possible because we know it is not what mums want.’
The kicker is that, with socialized healthcare, it doesn’t matter what you want. What matters is how the government wants it, and that’s how it will be. With no free market, there’s no incentive for the government to fix the system, either. You just have to suffer.
Sadly, Britons and Canadians have no one but themselves to blame for their horrific healthcare, and if we vote people into office that implement socialized healthcare here as well like they did, then neither will we. We decide who makes the laws in this country.
Democrats like to crow about “free healthcare!” because they know that a lot of Americans will take nothing more than a superficial look at where they stand on the issues, and “free healthcare!” sounds good. A lot of Americans have no idea what they’re getting into, and are completely ignorant of the fact that socialized medicine does not work, has never worked, and will only mean taxes will skyrocket and quality of healthcare will plummet. Democrats won’t be honest and upfront about that part, because they know that if they were, no one would vote for them. So instead, they run on shallow platforms of “HOPE!” and “CHANGE!”, and pray that no one digs any deeper.
John McCain is not the perfect candidate. But he gives us a better chance of saving this country from socialist moonbattery than Barack Obama, who will happily inflict his Marxist ideals onto us. Socialized healthcare is just one facet, and that is scary enough in and of itself.
