After the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Senate’s health care bill (without changes because they could not craft and pass a bill of their own), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proclaimed that the effort reflected American’s founding declaration of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
A society that compels each individual to provide for the personal happiness of one’s neighbor, which can come only from selling one’s labor or one’s private property, and then handing those earnings over by confiscatory taxes, is a society with less individual freedom or liberty. At the current bankrupting levels of benevolence that comprise Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, this health care log will no doubt pulverize every bone in the camel. The destruction of our great nation — what the enemies of America could not accomplish by war, we are doing to ourselves by misplaced compassion.
There’s more… and it’s a must read…
It’s Godly wisdom… and it’s saving grace…
Read it. Digest it. Pass it on.
