Single Payer Healthcare Will Subjugate the American People
By Domenick J. Maglio, PhD Traditional Realist

Our nation is rapidly moving toward a single payer health care system. The Affordable Healthcare Act is still in the introductory phase of winning the support of the American people for mandatory health insurance for everyone. The promise of developing a quality system while lowering the cost of healthcare was never logical, feasible or expected to work.

Before Obama became president he clearly stated his ultimate goal was a single payer healthcare system. He stated it would take about 15 years for the transition to be implemented. Gradually people had to be persuaded that the healthcare company’s greed was the cause of the poor quality of service. The all-powerful central government only needed more taxing power to solve the substandard system.  

The progressive formula is constant and consistent. When government does not deliver on its promises they blame it on the business sector while taking over more control, which makes matters worse. You are not supposed to believe your lying eyes and personal experiences with the system. There is no need to make it work as long as it is sold by using sophisticated false advertising and trumped up statistics.

Universal healthcare is the nail in the coffin of the free enterprise system that has made us great. Socialism/communism will be ushered in with a vengeance once this new method of redistributing (robbing) our assets is in place. Healthcare was one sixth of our GNP when Obamacare was rammed down our throats. The 2000 page bill was passed in a shady way before any of our representatives could read it. Open bribes bought senator’s votes like the “Cornhusker Kickback” deal. Almost everyday there is a new significant revelation in the bill that grants progressives more power to do things that are not connected to healthcare.

The rallying cry for the progressive is everyone has “a right to free healthcare.” It is not free and is certainly not even the quality that we had. The quality of care should be the issue but it is not. In Marxist leaning countries the people are told they have a right to “free everything under the sun” to con and appease them. The quality of all these programs precipitously drops as good providers quit because their assets and products are being confiscated.

Every citizen is mandated to pay healthcare taxes or face soaring penalties. The higher the taxes, the greater the subjugation of the people. The services the people receive become limited. Inevitably they are denied the best medical practices and even access to keep the cost of the program under control. Eventually the system deteriorates until the promises become a sham.

The greatest disservice free healthcare does to the people is to make them dependent on national healthcare. The government decides what is healthy or is not. They lose the responsibility and desire to maintain their own health. They are unable to regain their health when sick by tried and true natural methods since they are indoctrinated to be dependent on going to the “free clinics” for the most minor ailments.

When fully implemented Universal healthcare will end America, as we know it. It will become another centrally controlled nation. No longer will we be the land of opportunity. Instead we will more rapidly shrink the middleclass of its prosperity and wealth. This has already happened under the Obama administration.

The freedoms insured by constraining the government in our Constitution and Bill of Rights will be eliminated one by one. We will take on the characteristics of a repressive central government. Social mobility of citizens will come to a screeching halt. The social order will become more rigid with a larger dependent welfare class.

Unless we dismantle the beginnings of a single payer healthcare system we will suffer the reality of an all-powerful government. Every person will be mandated to participate in the program with increasing fees for poorer services. This is becoming the new normal for the average citizen.

All Americans remember our nation’s greatness was not based on promises of free things. We were blessed with a constitution that when followed gave us freedom from tyranny and the opportunity to work to climb the socioeconomic ladder of the capitalist free market economy.

We need to eliminate corporate welfare, oppressive government regulations that deny small businesses from entering the marketplace and free handouts to able Americans. We should return to what has made America great: power to the people not to the ruling class.
