Of Lies, Evil and Good Men Doing Nothing

Bill WilsonBy Bill Wilson

After the millions of protestors who attended rallies, town hall meetings and marched in the streets against socialized health care, the Congress is going ahead with it anyway. They apparently believe they know better than the people who elected them. And the lies and deceit perpetrated upon the American people is unprecedented. But the stakes are high. This White House and Congress are attempting to do what no enemy, foreign or domestic, has ever succeeded in doing - the complete takeover the United States of America. The government will control the vast majority of the economy once it conquers nationalized healthcare - and it will control the purse strings of every American.

The man who occupies the Oval Office went on television September 10 and lied to the American people about his health care plans. He said that "no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions." Fact Check by the liberal Annenberg Public Policy Center admits that this statement is false. A public option - government ownership of health insurance - requires funding called premiums, which would be used to fund abortions. It is technically not a tax, but nevertheless government required funding. He also said that his program would not add "one dime" to the federal deficit. All expert analysis on this program indicates that nearly a trillion dollars will be added over a ten year period.

He said that he would support not having a public option. A public option is government provided health insurance. It is the hub of the entire socialist takeover. These socialists are selling the public option as the only way that competition is introduced into the insurance industry. It is a complete lie as the public option means that private insurance companies would have to compete with a government monopoly - how does one compete with an entity that has unlimited funding? The public option is back in the legislation offered by the Senate. And the White House has so far succeeded in defusing the American public's opposition to it by saying there would be no public option.

Irrespective of the debate over the horrors in the health care legislation, the bottom line is that the entire concept is unconstitutional. Health care is not a right. Quite the opposite, it is forbidden for the federal government to be involved. The 10th Amendment states,

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
But 2 Timothy 3:13 says,
"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived."
And statesman Edmond Burke said in October 1789,
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
It is time to act with passion and conviction.
