Behind think of the Goodwins law..

"There is a trajectory of socialism, regardless of the good intentions of many socialists. As he framed it, you take things such as health care, things that are traditionally understood as within the ambit of individual liberty and free choice; you move such things into the ambit of state responsibility as the welfare state emerges and grows, on the theory that it is government’s responsibility to provide for everyone’s needs (by redistributing resources); as more things are moved from private to public control, the state by definition becomes totalitarian; and, inexorably, the totalitarian state gets bad leaders and the society comes to reflect the policy choices of those leaders."

Article excerpt by: Andrew C. McCarthy

"Our bureaucracy would certainly cause health care to result in rationing and euthanasia. There will be death of the innocents, just not on the same scale and not as evil of motive. Though in any case any form of euthanasia is intrinsically evil regardless of the intent of the "care-giver". One thing that most people don't realize is that it was American that often served to give advice to Nazi Germany when it came to eugenics. Some of the people that worked with Margaret Sanger and her Birth Control League and wrote for her magazine served as advisors to the Nazi regime. America at the time was on a eugenics kick and some of the laws since repealed are really disturbing."

The Latest round in the failed arguments for the Government take over of Healthcare seems to focus on the Morality of having the Government take on the Role of Nanny. With the current attempts to undermine discussion by envoking Racism and Hitler and Class Warefare. I thought the above two missives delve past the obvious shock value. I invite you to read them open minded and take from them what you will. Facts not Spin should rule the day.

At least I think that.
