A conservative family friend has decided to turn himself in to Obama:
Just to save my neighbors the trouble, I am reporting on myself.
I am as opposed as it is possible to be to the Health Care (or is it Health Insurance, or something even newer today) “reform” now being swept at breakneck speed through the Congress, as though this was some new national crisis. I have communicated my feelings to both of my Senators and my Representative. It is too expensive, too intrusive of my freedom of healthcare choice, and too ill-considered. And just so everyone knows: I do not need anyone to tell me how to think; not the Congress, not the White House, not the DNC, not Rush Limbaugh, and certainly not the RNC. You got a gluttonous emergency stimulus bill of nearly a trillion dollars that has yet to “stimulate” much of anything. You got a budget of Brobdingnagian proportions that expands government control over my life in ways I have yet to imagine. You got a huge automatic income and estate tax increase coming in 2011 that, by the way, affects many people whose income is under $250,000 a year, so don’t come running to me breathlessly claiming that the middle class won’t have to pay higher taxes under Obama. You got control of a large portion of the financial markets, executive pay, and you even got to own your own automobile company. You have had things pretty much your own way for the last seven months, with an historically unprecedented deficit (Obama-owned, not Bush-owned) to prove it. But this time you’ve gone to the well one too many times. Government spending and deficits are out of control and no one at the White House seems to know, to know how much, to care, or to understand. We simply cannot afford a healthcare system that, by any fair reading, or by any fair analysis of its eventual outcomes, will improve practically no one’s healthcare, will cost far more than the current healthcare system, will grow in cost far faster than any rational plan to fund it, and will fail to insure most of those few people who currently are without insurance. And most of those criticisms are from your own party and from those bureaucrats your own party appointed to analyze such things!
But that’s not the worst of it.
When my government sets up a system to monitor honest disagreement and rational discussion and calls both of those “spreading misinformation,” something is radically wrong at the top. Worse yet, when my government sets up an apparatus to collect information on dissenters and asks decent citizens to rat out their neighbors to a website (email@example.com) for saying disagreeable things about the President’s healthcare plan, then we are cruising perilously close to despotism. That is simply unacceptable! There is no conceivable justification for totalitarianism! Nancy Pelosi, in a moment of rhetorical hyperbole and freakish imagination, spoke today of healthcare opponents carrying swastikas. Far more insidious is the President and his martinets acting much as those who DID carry swastikas 70 years ago in Germany. Despots often defend their otherwise indefensible agendas by savaging and belittling their opponents. Adolph Hitler hastened the consolidation of his power by creating the apparatus to pit neighbor against neighbor to stifle “dissent.” God save us if that is what you are about.
