Bury Obamacare

The word "Repeal" has been leaving the lips of a good number of people these days, with even the disgusting John McCain actually using it the other day (only a month after he said that defunding or repealing Obamacare was "irrational"). So if this piece of crap is saying it, you know it's gotten safer to do so, which spells trouble for the democRats. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee led the battle against Obamacare and were betrayed by gutless republicans, but now they can make the argument for Full Repeal, with more people willing to listen, and they can do so again and again in the next few years, to set the stage to Undo the frustrated dictator's "signature legislation". Whatever crap we're going through now, there seems to be an opening for turning things around here. Yes, the GOP will do their best to blow it, that's who they are, democRat bitches, through and through. To hell with them. Not only can Obamacare be fought effectively and eventually buried in the end (as a first, big step to rolling back all the other poisonous programs our government has foisted on us) but in the meantime, working towards the midterm elections of 2014 will also be an opportunity to get Ted Cruz and Mike Lee some serious backup. And then, in 2016, with a possible Tea Partier winning the presidential election, there will be True hope, True change coming, and so on. The next few years should be very interesting. 

And now here's Ayn Rand, who says it better than anyone. From Atlas Shrugged, 1957:

“I quit when medicine was placed under State control some years ago,” said Dr. Hendricks. “Do you know what it takes to perform a brain operation? Do you know the kind of skill it demands, and the years of passionate, merciless, excruciating devotion that go to acquire that skill? That was what I could not place at the disposal of men whose sole qualification to rule me was their capacity to spout the fraudulent generalities that got them elected to the privilege of enforcing their wishes at the point of a gun. I would not let them dictate the purpose for which my years of study had been spent, or the conditions of my work, or my choice of patients, or the amount of my reward. I observed that in all the discussions that preceded the enslavement of medicine, men discussed everything—except the desires of the doctors. Men considered only the ‘welfare’ of the patients, with no thought for those who were to provide it. That a doctor should have any right, desire or choice in the matter, was regarded as irrelevant selfishness; his is not to choose, they said, but ‘to serve.’ That a man who's willing to work under compulsion is too dangerous a brute to entrust with a job in the stockyards—never occurred to those who proposed to help the sick by making life impossible for the healthy. I have often wondered at the smugness at which people assert their right to enslave me, to control my work, to force my will, to violate my conscience, to stifle my mind—yet what is it they expect to depend on, when they lie on an operating table under my hands? Their moral code has taught them to believe that it is safe to rely on the virtue of their victims. Well, that is the virtue I have withdrawn. Let them discover the kind of doctors that their system will now produce. Let them discover, in the operating rooms and hospital wards, that it is not safe to place their lives in the hands of a man they have throttled. It is not safe, if he is the sort of man who resents it—and still less safe, if he is the sort who doesn’t.”
