AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

The Great Communicator on Socialized Health Care

I’m guessing many people have probably already seen this (considering it was posted to YouTube 2 years ago), but I just got around to listening to the 10 minute video today and thought I would pass it on. I’m betting that this would cause Nancy Pelosi and the mass media to call Reagan a NAZI and un-American…

Ronald Reagan Speaks Out Against Socialized Medicine

“From the 1961 Operation Coffee Cup Campaign against Socialized Medicine as proposed by the Democrats, then a private citizen Ronald Reagan Speaks out against socialized medicine. There is no video because this was an LP sent out by the American Medical Association.”

The key point made here by Mr. Reagan on a couple different occasions is that the goal of Socialists — which Obama and the Democrats clearly are — is to just ‘get their foot in the door’. After that, they know that they can expand their initial program as far reaching as they want. Obama himself has explicitly stated this when he said that they may not be able to get rid of employer insurance and have full single-payer right away, but he imagines in 10-15-20 years down the road, it will happen.

So this bill is all about ‘getting their foot in the door’.

This is why it is so important to not get too caught up in details, but to smack down the whole idea of government insurance in general. We should be arguing that no matter how much lipstick the Democrats put on this pig, or how much they try to take out of the bill now — only to be put in later after they pass it — it does not matter, because government healthcare itself is BAD and a failed idea.

It truly is a shame that we don’t have a Reagan around today. We need his clarity and his courage to speak the facts and not back down from his enemies smearing him at every turn.
