We Are All Socialists Now

The Supreme Court bungling of the Obamacare decision leaves the 2012 elections as the last slim hope for our nation.

Welcome to the United Socialist States of America.

This line may premature but we are on an almost unstoppable path to a European style Socialist system. As bad as that system is failing across Europe, it will be worse for us. Our system will be worse as Obamacare’s method to force transition to Government run healthcare will cause more economic and budgeting problems than a single payer healthcare system would.

The focus of this blog could be on how we are living in post-constitutional America, but for that I would recommend Ameritopia by Mark Levin. At this point my focus is on the more urgent matter, our last hope to save the nation, the 2012 elections.

First we must repeal Obamacare. Failure to repeal would doom the country to a fiscal collapse like much of Europe is facing, maybe not immediately, but within 15 years. In the short term failure to repeal will mean continued suppression of the economy and job growth. I would be concerned about the lower quality of healthcare we will have, but that does not seem to matter since we will likely be ruined financially before that happens.

The task is monumental and this next election is the last chance. We must get rid of Obama. We then need GOP control of the House & Senate. Then we will need 7-10 Democrats who care more about the future of the country than setting up a permanent power structure for their party to rule over the decline of the nation.

The task is urgent because within about 5 years likely 50% of employers will dump their employees into the exchanges and by then the private non-employer based insurance will be closing down as healthy people are paying the ”Tax” instead of buying insurance.

The Democrats will propose a Government option to fill the gap. With more than half of the employed people losing their insurance, Democrats will have the support to get it done then. At that point we become Europe were we can’t see how we can survive without Government run health care. Failure to repeal means by 2016 or 2020 at the latest the Democrats will be openly socialists instead of denying their true colors. The GOP will be like Democrats used to be. Obama will have kept his promise to “Fundamentally Transform America”.  

We have slim shot to save this nation, but we must try. The only thing evil needs to succeed, is for good men to stand by and do nothing. The Supreme Court decision on Obamacare makes getting rid of Obama and finding 60 Senators supporting repeal the only hope we have left as a nation.

Jay, I have yet to hear a way of adding pre-existing coverage to health insurance that is fair to everyone. I am sure there is a way, just haven't heard it or thought of it. I am not willing to pass the burden of some onto everyone, especially, as you brought up, people that made the choices that led to their current condition.

Anti - hope you never get cancer - I got melanoma - less than 1cm - I am now uninsurable - do you even know how insurance premiums are set? The larger the risk pool the less it costs for EVERYONE. Hope any of your loved ones never get sick - sounds like you would kick them to the curb.

Great response - if we don't have mortgage insurance we lose the mortgage on our house, if we don't have care insurance we pay a fine/tax. Get over it. You don't want health insurance - then don't go to the doctors, hospitals or pharmacy - stay at home and suffer. You can't have it both ways.

Actually Ann, the larger the risk pool also means more people that have pre-existing conditions. Again, the problem is that the cost of an expensive treatment is passed on to EVERYONE in the pool. Insurance companies have the choice of raising EVERYONE'S insurance to cover the problem, or taking the higher risks out of the pool. As I have said before, I have faith that there is a way that is fair for everyone to insure people with high risks and pre-existing conditions, I just have yet to hear it!
