Health Care

"With Republicans in power, man exploits man. With Democrats, just the opposite."

So reads the bumper sticker on the back of an anonymous Alabama pickup truck.

From the beginning of time, man was hardwired to obtain two things: comfort and happiness. The harder he tries to obtain these things outside of God, the more elusive they are. The Israelites of the Old Testament are a prime example of this. They were directly ruled by God, yet they still went astray, seeking comfort and happiness.

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are God given rights... within His parameters. The ultimate guide to comfort and happiness is the Bible. However, as the Israelites before them, everyone has sought comfort and happiness without God. It's part of our sin nature.

The government of the United States is seeking to gain the status of God by rejecting it's Biblical role of wielding the sword and seeking to provide health care. The communistic manner in which this has been and continues to be thrust upon us is wrong. The number of so called Christians who have compromised and accept the government's ownership of their lives is appalling. So-called Health Care is the biggest lie since so-called Reconstruction.
The challenges we face in the upcoming months will be real and serious, but always remember, God is in control, and take heart in the examples left behind by our forefathers, who combated tyrannical governments similar to the one we face today.

That picture at the top of this post is of my great-great-great-grandfather's family. Looks like they did alright without the government, scrapping out a living up in North Carolina. Notice all the kids are clothed and seem to be in their right minds. Doesn't look like they're suffering from not being able to socialize either.

Good post Stephen.

Health Care is just another way for politicians to offer panem et circenses, thus ensuring their popularity with the modern day peasantry of America.

Coupled with the fact that our wars are now fought with great numbers of mercenaries and illegal’s (promised amnesty), it sounds eerily similar to the downfall of another great civilization.

Bravo! More excellent analyses!

Rushdoony has a lot to say along these lines in several of his books, including "The Messianic Character of American Education".

And of course it was old Ben Franklin who said "Those who sacrifice liberty for [social] security deserve neither." Or something like that...
