Some Observations on The Healthcare Bill by a Disinterested Silverwolf

August 9, 2009

Amidst the screaming and yelling amongst our Human neighbors, whom we are forced to live with, about their “healthcare” bill, we gathered the elders of the Libertarian wolfpack to express our views on this legislation.

Of course, the key question really is, How can the Government morally force all individuals to buy health insurance? They will be forced to buy it either from the bureaucrats and the Fed’s corporate buddies in the insurance industry, who, with the aid of their government bailouts, will be the only offerers of insurance since their smaller competition will be wiped out, and no little fish will ever be able to garner the capital, and comply with the onerous regulations that would be required of a new upstart business; or else they will be forced to buy it for the government, use government doctors, and follow government treatment programs, which will undoubtedly require the use of mega-corporate pharmaceuticals en masse, and cook-book procedures administered by the lower third of med-school graduates (if they can find enough). Competition will be eliminated, just as the big boys want. And plenty of juicy jobs and commissions for the civil service pension-golddiggers.

The fact that the Right of the Individual to exist on his own is basically trashed by this outrageous proposal is completely overlooked by the bill’s proponents, who seem to have lost all semblance of any comprehension of the Constitution. It may be one thing to require people to purchase insurance to drive a vehicle on public roads, since there are other ways of getting around like walking, bicycles, and public and private omnibuses; one can still travel without a drivers license. But to require someone to buy so-called health insurance just because they exist as a Human Being is not only deeply immoral, but a radical violation of the Rights of the Individual Human Being. That person may not want to ever be treated with conventional medical techniques, and to force them to pay for something they would never use, and force them to pay for their neighbor’s use of something they do not believe is valid, is again deeply immoral. This is the most heinous part of this bill, in principle, for it violates the Jeffersonian Imperative of the Individual’s “Inalienable Right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”. It is anti-Libertarian in the extreme; it is draconian and totalitarian. It is the philosophy of the bully-boy miscreants of the earth who want to break the Human Spirit into a thousand ineffectual shards. It is pure Fascism.

But now to descend from the Philosophical plane to the more mundane ones of costs and implementations.

The White House, in its chilling ‘send us the emails of anyone saying anything you deem to be “fishy” ‘, in its first info-gathering exercise to see if the finking element of the populace will grass on their political opponents and neighbors, so the White House can theoretically start compiling a new “enemies list” a la Nixon — that White House seems to have forgotten the fishiest piece of disinformation yet, that being the President’s claim that this will not increase the deficit and will be revenue neutral, while the Congressional Budgetary Office contends that the deficit will run into trillions of dollars. Now the fact that a Law professor can contradict a group of professional economists, considered competent enough to work for the Federal Government, strikes Silverwolf as extremely “fishy”. Perhaps someone should send in the President’s email address to the government in its efforts to root out false information?

Finally, there are the provisions listed on page 425 of H.R. 3200 which would mandate anyone on Medicare to be forced to have a consultation regarding ending-of-life provisions at least once every five years, and under five years under a whole list of conditions. Again, this is a horrendous invasion of privacy, and a measure with ominous overtones, because many people could easily be bamboozled or browbeaten into  choices they don’t want to make, by a pushy and aggressive (or lying) government bureaucrat whose main concern is to save the Federal Government the maximum amount of dollars, so that his cost-savings record looks good. Remember, to the Government one more dead body means one less Social Security check the government must pay out for years, so government has a vested interest in skewering the direction of peoples “choices”. About the only choice left in America will soon be to leave the country.

There is also the issue of the security of government databanks listing all your medical conditions. Given the many instances of government losing data, or having it hacked, and putting millions of social security numbers into the hands of cyber-criminals, which has further exacerbated the epidemic of identity theft, we can just imagine what a field day blackmailers, and government employees stealing and reselling information, will have when they get their hands on this info. It is clear that when all this intimate knowledge about people’s lives gets on the data banks, personal privacy, guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, will be a thing of the past.

But I can see that the depravity of this Bill is starting to make the elders of the wolfpack look a bit sick, so we’d better desist since they don’t carry medical insurance. One can stomach only so much Fascism in one day.

Brushfires of Rage: The Democrat Townhall Meetings

August 5, 2009

Silverwolf has just been shaken by a spectacle he had not witnessed since seeing the anger swirling around War Criminal Humphrey at the Democratic Convention in ’68. This spectacle was the irrepressible rage of the American populace at being manipulated and propagandized by the pusillanimous minions of the White House, as they try to ram this Fascistic healthcare bill down the infected throat of the American body politic. Never, since the days of St. George, running against War Criminal Richard Stinkhouse Nixon, in his attempt to gain the throne majestical and wield the sceptre royal over the American populace, has Silverwolf seen such ructions. It has finally dawned on many complacent Americans exactly what this new Socialist imposition of HR 3200 will mean to the quality and cost of their healthcare, and they are aroused as never before in years two score.

Three videos, mentioned on, show Congressmen being raked over the coals by irate constituents.  Lloyd Doggett, of Austin, RonPaulland, is confronted by an angry mob chanting “just say no!”. Lord Quisling-highness Senator Spector of Pennsylvania is shown trying to explain to the crowd, with a defensive Secretary Sebelius trying to deflect some of the blows, why it’s impossible for him to read the bills he signs, and so they are broken up and read in parts by different people. That really brought out the lion’s roar in the crowd. Guess that Senator’s salary is so measly, and the pledge Spector took to defend the Constitution so feeble, that it’s really not worth his time to actually read through all the new regulations he helps force down the gullet of American Humans. Millions will have to live with the decisions this lazy man makes for us all.

Finally, Congressman Tim Bishop got a real ear-full from his angry mob in Long Island, New York, a state on the Eastern coast of America. Poor Tim told his sometime listeners that the purpose of the Constitution was to “provide for the common good” — in his Collectivist interpretation, this means a form of Communism. But poor Tim’s understanding of the Constitution is feeble indeed, for, as we well know, the purpose of the Constitution is to protect the Rights of the Individual and Individual Liberty from the encroachments of the State. That is why Jefferson felt it was imperative to add the Bill of Rights to the Constitution, for without them, he knew is would be worthless. But “provide for the common good” really means the exact opposite of Bishop’s Collectivist interpretation of the phrase. It actually means, to guarantee to every citizen in common the protection of their property rights (contained in Jefferson’s phrase “the pursuit of happiness”). The “common good” means every single citizen will have in common that protection, and that will be good for all men. Whatever is necessary to protect those Rights is the true function of the American Constitution.

Then Congressman Bishop had the gall to say that the Veterans Administration worked very well, and he was proud of it. A  elderly Veteran asked him if he was a Vet himself, and he said no, and then the Vet wondered how Bishop could assert that it worked very well, since his own experiences for years had been horrendous, and he’d had to wait two months to see a doctor. Beautiful!

And finally, the most heinous dodge of all, when a woman asked him where in the Constitution it authorized the government to force everyone into a health plan, he came back by quoting “The Pledge of Allegiance”, and quoted the part “One Nation, under God, indivisible” stressing “indivisible”. Now didn’t Hitler have his fellow countrymen mumble something similar, except his name was substituted for the Deity’s? In other words, Bishop is subtly saying  “don’t dissent because we’re going to ram this down your throat, even if it is blatantly unConstitutional”, just like War Criminal Johnson did with his “police action” in Vietnam, and his hatred of dissent. But, as you will observe, by corruptly switching the question from the Constitution to the Pledge (which ironically was instituted under Eisenhower, a Republican), he dodged the question, which of course he couldn’t answer, since forcing everyone to buy health insurance, either private or from the government, is a form of coercion which is both unConstitutional, and Fascistic. Another corrupt Collectivist politician. They sure are a dime a dozen, eh what?

The American people are arising in brushfires of Liberty to speak, and shout, and yell against the Socialist imposts being planned and forced through in that Chamber of Political Sin, the Congress. The Democrats have miscalculated, and miscalculated badly, as Socialists invariably do in the marketplace. Judging by what Silverwolf saw today,something which he has not witnessed in 36 years, the Democrats will be toast in the mid-term elections of 2010.

Ron Paul’s message of political Truth has reached deeply into the political consciousness of America, and things will never be the same again. Never.

The Power of One!
