Where is common sense in the health care debate?
A letter writer recently asked, “Where is compassion in health care debate?” My response is that it was irrelevant emotions like compassion that led our government into being the overgrown behemoth that we have today. It was compassion and other "feelings" that gave us program after program as the downward spiral took us deeper and deeper into the clutches of tyranny. If the government is allowed to have this new control over our health care decisions then I fear that our country will have passed the point of no return and we will never again be the free nation that our founding fathers envisioned for us.
The answer to health care is not more government; it is less. Check out the healthcare reforms being proposed by Republicans in Congress where real change can happen without government control. The government has been involved in regulating and manipulating health care for decades. Government involvement is the primary reason for the problems we see today.
It is time for common sense. It is not the role of government to provide healthcare and the Constitution does not authorize it. If you are struggling and need help then ask your friends, family, and neighbors for assistence. Take control of your own life and stop surrendering your liberty to an overbearing government. Don't fall for the "compassion" argument being given by the self appointed wizards of morality. Government does not feel compassion. It simply lusts for more power.
