“You Can’t Make a Weak Man Strong by Making a Strong Man Weak”

Barack Obama would like to think he represents the second coming of Abraham Lincoln. During his campaign and inauguration and now also during his Presidency, Obama and his minions are working to overtake and fundamentally change the structure and fabric of large parts of our economy and nation. He is the President and he has every right and obligation to perform. That said, the American population also has the right and obligation to speak its mind. In regard to the Lincoln comparisons, let’s revisit that later in this commentary.
Those in Washington pushing health care reform would seemingly like to present this situation as being so complex and so convoluted that the American public neither appreciates nor has a choice in the eventual passage of this legislation. I hear time and time again that the government must institute real change and that the government must be the driving force in bringing about that change. Is the American public being prepped to have the largest single government overhaul of a sector representing approximately 18% of 2009 GDP literally rammed down our throats?
While the wizards in Washington pushing this so-called reform seem to believe they know what is in the American public’s best interests, in my opinion they are tone deaf to large segments of the American population.
As I touched upon the other day, proposed health care reform is merely another in the myriad of government redistribution programs. Who gets this? Mike Rogers, Congressman from Michigan (R-MI). He spoke earlier this year about this exceptionally important topic from a macro standpoint. Let’s revisit his comments. Please listen closely. His references to information emantating from the U.K and Canada are chilling to those who have worked hard to take care of themselves and their loved ones.
