With the official launching of Obamacare on Oct. 1, I ask, who is the real father of universal health care? Otto von Bismarck, the chancellor of Germany (1871-90), established the world’s first welfare state in Germany. In 1883, von Bismarck established socialized health care in Germany with the Reichsversicherungsverordnung, or the Reich Insurance Act, which was limited to government bureaucrats and the elderly. Bismarck’s institution of socialized health care was designed to co-opt the increasing popularity of Marxist socialism and implement its anti-God, anti-capitalism ideas spreading throughout Europe in the late 1800s.
One aspect of Hitler’s socialist universal health-care model was “racial hygiene,” the removal of certain “undesirable” segments of society who are judged beneath the Aryan ideal, thus “life unworthy of existence,” as Hitler would repeatedly say. Using his brutal panzer divisions, Hitler literally rolled out his universal health care throughout occupied France, Belgium and the Netherlands – those nations with mainly “Aryan” populations. Hitler used his military thugs of the Gestapo and SS Stormtroopers to implement universal health care in those very countries that he desired to Aryanize and perfect by sanitizing the populations through sterilization and medical murder of all persons unfortunate to have physical or mental defects.
Of course, I do not contend that Obama is Hitler, but if America foolishly adopt policies of national socialism, then we fail to learn from history the innumerable grotesqueries, inhumanity and genocide of previous nations who tried universal health care. To grant governments this god-like power over birth, life and death issues will be misused, not exactly as it was in Nazi Germany, nevertheless a tragedy for society.
Years before the Jews were sent to the death camps en masse, the initial mass murders of the Holocaust were performed in sanitized German hospitals and the clinical procedures for socialized governmental mass execution were created and developed there under the Nazis Aktion T4 Program. Handicapped, retarded and mentally ill persons were killed by the hundreds of thousands within Hitler’s universal health-care system, including some of Hitler’s own relatives. This genocide was conducted not out of evil intent but born out of medical necessity. Hitler, in his official directives, allowing medical killing, called them “mercy killing” and “lives not worth living.”
This is the inevitable diabolical nature of universal health care. It substitutes natural law for the God-state of government to decide and dictate the right to of who lives and who dies for entire classes of society, as opposed to letting people make their own choices using the free market and private enterprise to secure their own health care. Did Hitler do this because he was so worried about the health of the people and nations he conquered? No, Hitler loved universal health care so excessively that he forced it on occupied countries because it gave him the power and control over entire classes of people to facilitate his ghastly plans of genocide against them. As a leftist and a socialist, universal health care gave him the power to put policy into practice, to socially engineer society according to his own wicked, racist means/ends. With an executive decree, whole classes of people would be eliminated without any judicial due process being required.
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” These were the words of treason Obama uttered on the eve of his election that he and his progressive minions have been now systematically implementing for almost six years.
Republicans miss the point when they argue that universal health care doesn’t work; it works for the progressive elite at the top of the socialist God-state under the pretext of “health” to remove the “unfit” from society. Nazicare worked in favor of the Nazi Reich for their purposes to efficiently eradicate certain classes of people en masse without due process. In the 21st century we have much more advanced technology to kill many more people not only more efficiently, but with the mass acceptance and perfection of abortion (almost 60 million casualties since Roe v. Wade 40 years ago), mass killings have become so passé America has elected a man twice who between 2001-03 was the only legislator in Illinois to vote four times against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act – legislation requiring medical attention be given for those courageous babies who survived abortions.
Hitler would be pleased.
Since the founders of America’s republic understood that humanity is by nature anti-God, hypocritical and duplicitous, they created a system of checks and balances and limitations of government power because they realized someday a dictator like a Barack Obama would arise and seize power in the United States for himself by ignoring or deconstructing the U.S. Constitution. Since President Woodrow Wilson’s Socialist revolution of 1913 it seems that dishonest politicians and egotistical, corrupt judges have disregarded and circumvented the Constitution to such a degree as to render it now to be a deadletter.
Nazi Germany is the true birthplace, and Hitler is the real father of universal health care. Like Lenincare, Stalincare, Maocare, Castrocare and Obamacare, all universal health-care systems are derivative of Marxism, socialism, communism, progressivism, postmodernism and thus are antithetical to America’s founding constitutional principles of God, the Bible, natural law, equality, liberty and truth. Like Hitlercare, Obamacare will inevitably lead to health-care rationing, death panels, millions of uninsured and, eventually, the systematic genocide of the weak, minorities, enfeebled, the elderly and political enemies of the God-state.
Obama is using his Gestapo and SS Stormtroppers or so-called “navigators” (e.g., the youth, the unions, Planned Parenthood, NAACP, ACORN, La Raza, etc.) to propagandize the poor, the miseducated and minorities who are being exploited to lead this final blitzkrieg toward forcing universal health care, but like in Hitler’s Germany once the reality of their treachery metastasizes, guess who will be the first ones forced to sacrifice their lives for the Fatherland in our march toward a “perfect” society without illness or suffering? History has repeatedly demonstrated that the weakest and most vulnerable have often been the first victims to be eliminated.
Would Obamacare's full implementation be end of America as we know it?
- No, that's right-wing crazy talk
- No, don't be silly. It will make our nation a better place to live
- No, it would be a brand new beginning – one of caring, compassion and equality
- No, only the end of the America that denied the poor access to medical care
- No, it's just the end of the America that sold medical care to the highest bidder
- No, America is still the nation I know and love. But Obamacare will likely cripple its health-care system
- Yes, government incompetence guarantees this will crash and take the U.S. economy with it
- Yes, it's the end of the America that offered the greatest health-care system in the world to all
- Yes, it's the end of the America that kept government out of the lives of citizens
- Yes, a government that can deny people access to their parks can deny them access to medical procedures
- Yes, the irony of Obama using great cruelty to keep alive his supposedly compassionate health-care overhaul is beyond stunning
- Yes, it's the end of the America in which individuals governed themselves and assumed responsibility for their own lives
- Yes, it grants government the power of life and death over its citizens
