Obamacare: Broken Promises and Lies

This article from the typically liberal leaning Time does a good job of dismantling the lies of Obamacare.

claims-vs-reality

One must understand that Obamacare was DESIGNED to fail.  If Obama and the democrats could have made the leap straight to completely government run healthcare, they would have done so.  But they knew better.  First, they had to set the hook and bury it as deeply as possible.  They had to make it so painful to dismantle Obamacare that those who had gotten hooked on it, mostly those who were getting it for “free” or without paying the full freight, would revolt if you took away their “free” stuff, and would demand the government take over the whole system.

We warned you back in 2010 what you would get with Obamacare.  I wish we had been wrong, and America was actually better off and improving.  But sadly, we were right.  Now Obamacare is collapsing around us as even the subsidized insurers can’t make a profit on this abomination.  Obamacare WILL collapse.  It’s only a matter of time.

“Feeling the Bern” Destroys Nations

Socialism has ALWAYS failed, mostly because it ignores human nature.  It sounds good to the ignorant when taught in the classroom without the other side being taught, but ALWAYS fails when applied in the real world.

This picture does a good job of illustrating that.

Socialism and Communism: Different Means to the Same End

Socialism is merely the gateway drug to communism. They both want the same thing, which is government control of everything, and everyone. The socialists (Mensheviks) think they can convince you to submit willingly. The communists (Bolsheviks) use force to gain your submission when the promises of socialism fail. Continue reading

The Failure of Liberal/Progressive Education (a.k.a. Indoctrination)

Socialism at its core is diametrically opposed to everything our Constitution stands for.  So how is an avowed socialist now holding an office that requires swearing an oath to protect and defend our Constitution?  How is he being allowed to run for President of the United States when everything he openly promises to do will further erode or even finish the destruction of our Constitution?  For the first 30 years of his tenure in public office, you can blame the idiots in Vermont.  For the fact that he is a NATIONAL contender for the office of POTUS, you can blame our education system which has been steadily destroyed over the last 75 years or so by liberal-progressives to the point that we have now turned out two generations of students who are barely literate, and have been indoctrinated instead of educated on civics.  When you ask the overwhelming majority of Sanders supporters what socialism is, they have no idea.  They hear the platitudes and promises that everything will be free and equal, but haven’t been taught the history that every single time this ideology has been followed, it leads eventually to totalitarianism, shortage, suffering, and death.  Russian and the Soviet Union, China, Cambodia, Vietnam, and North Korea are classic examples.

Subsidizing and price fixing us into the poorhouse

This article does a great job explaining how government through its burdensome regulations, tax laws, and cronyism does nothing but create massive market distortions that disrupt and drag down our economy.  The MYTH that the free market has failed is just that.  A MYTH.  We haven’t had a free market in a very long time because it has been pushed off the tracks by progressive Marxist/socialist policies.

This paragraph is a pretty good summary, but you are cheating yourself if you don’t read the whole thing.

Government is theft. It produces nothing and has nothing except that which it takes from the producers. It then turns around and grants what it has taken to favored constituencies in a massive reverse Robin Hood scheme. Subsidies are a subtle form of economic warfare between the haves (crony corporations) and have-nots (the people) and class warfare created between the people who are divided based on their economic status, minority status, etc. Price controls distort natural supply and demand, destroy profit margins, and create shortages. All is a masquerade for the benefit of a wicked political system.

Subsidizing and price fixing us into the poorhouse

corn subsidy concept“The whole of economics can be reduced to a single lesson, and that lesson can be reduced to a single sentence. The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the consequences of that policy not merely for one group but for all groups.” — Henry Hazlitt, “Economics in One Lesson”

One of the greatest fallacies of recent generations is the argument that free market capitalism has failed and that said failure is responsible for America’s moribund economy, the ongoing destruction of the middle class and the growing level of income inequality in which the 1 percent get richer at everyone else’s expense.

The American system is much more fascist and oligarchic than capitalistic. Special incentives, tax breaks and subsidies are given to crony corporations and certain industries in order to buy votes and generate kickbacks for lawmakers. And central planners set prices and control production levels of foods and other commodities. These policies create malinvestment and shortages and cause increased costs for staples and other goods by acting as a sort of hidden tax. Much of this stems from the creation of the Federal Reserve — which is neither federal, nor holds reserves — and Great Depression-era legislation that was bad at the time but has since morphed into something much worse.
