ObamaCare Will Affect Your Driving… And Much More Besides
believe that ObamaCare is just about health care
making it free (that is, paid for by others) or at least
more accessible (see previous bracketed deconstruction).
In fact, ObamaCare is about everything. Once affirmed by
the Supremes which it will be every nook and cranny
of your (past tense) life will be Official Public Business. I go
too far? I am being hysterical?
is a legal requirement in many areas that your child be given whatever
vaccines the state decrees each child must have. If the parents
demure, sanctions range from the beneficent (the child is prohibited
from entering a government school) to the not-so-beneficent (a visit
from the Child Protective Services KGB). Now, granted, some vaccines
are helpful, even necessary. Thats entirely beside the point.
The core issue here is coercion. Being forced to submit to
a medical procedure.
the legal basis for this coercion is theyre minors.
But when ObamaCare envelopes the land, we will all become minors
as a matter of law with those in control of the government
exercising total control over us.
It is already
happening. Consider, for example, the case of David Sarti.
Sarti is an
older guy and an overweight guy. He visited his doctor one
day because he wasnt feeling well. The doctor, a cardiologist,
advised surgical treatment and radical weight loss. Sarti explained
to the doctor that he did not wish to live his life with tubes
running out of his throat and so on. And went home, explaining
on his way out the door that he had livestock to care for. The doctor
called the thug scrum. The local sheriffs office sent armed
goons to Sartis farm and had him forcibly committed
for psychiatric evaluation because he declined the treatment
advised by the doctor and in order to force him to go on
See the news
Sarti was declared mentally incompetent and his
(former) right to possess firearms rescinded. His rifles and handguns
were taken from him by the state of Tennessee. See the video here:
You will be struck by how lucid, even-tempered and sane
Sarti appears to be. More so, given his ordeal. Sure, hes
heavy. And yeah, its not healthy to be that heavy.
But if thats evidence of mental illness then a third of the
country is mentally ill and in peril of being declared mentally
incompetent and having their (former) right to possess firearms
The key thing
here is the pathologizing of difference. Any deviation from
the prescribed orthodoxies orthodoxies as defined by the
government is becoming the pretext for intervention.
And that means, forcible interposition by men with guns, who will
compel you to behave as dictated.
If Sarti can
be sent to a rubber room for being heavy and declining to heed the
advice of his doctor to lose weight or undergo a surgical procedure,
what door has been opened? Think hard about this.
How about the
case of the 64-year-old California man I mentioned in my last column
(see here) who fell, scraped himself up a little, but decided he
did not need to go to the hospital and then was Tazered repeatedly
in his own home by a thug cop, who refused to respect his choice
to skip the trip to the hospital?
The law is
already such that if a public service official
decides you need treatment, you can be forced to accept
it at gunpoint. As Sarti discovered. As we all soon will
