Would socialized medicine lead to socialization of other phases of life? Lenin thought so. He declared socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the socialist state.
1945 AMA Pamphlet Warning
The Communist Workers Party published an article recently in defense of state-run medicine like the proposal that democrats are wanting to ram through in the next 10 days.
(Quipster) From the Socialists Workers Party
When the administration of John F. Kennedy discussed a plan for government health care that would cover people of Social Security age, the American Medical Association (AMA) fought back, along with the insurance and pharmaceutical industries, with a well-funded campaigncomplete with a commercial featuring actor Ronald Reagan, who was determined to talk to America about an imminent threat:
Now, back in 1927, an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism, the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program
One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. Its very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project Now, the American people, if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose, would unhesitatingly vote against it.
Of course, the danger of creeping socialism is a much less compelling argument today among ordinary people than it was during the Cold War. If anything, socialism is becoming a preferred alternative to the mess that capitalism has made of working-class living standards
According to the Physicians for a National Health Programs (PNHP) Karen Palmer, the AMA assessed its members an extra $25 each to resist national health insurance, and in 1945, it spent $1.5 million on lobbying efforts, which at the time was the most expensive lobbying effort in American history. An AMA pamphlet warned, Would socialized medicine lead to socialization of other phases of life? Lenin thought so. He declared socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the socialist state.
We are only 10 days away (or less!) from the final vote on ObamaCare. If the House votes yes on the Senate bill that is now before it, THE GAME IS OVER. Since the Senate already passed it, once the House passes it on March 18, Obamas signature on it (which will be immediate) MAKES IT LAW.
We are about to become a Socialist country. For if this passes, it will be virtually unrepealable. Health entitlement programs, once enacted, have proven to be permanent.
Think about it. Ten days from now: Permanent taxpayer funding of abortion. Permanent death panels (yes, those are in the bill), with no appeal of their decisions. Permanent forcing of pro-life doctors to refer for abortions, under penalty of loss of their license to practice. Within five years, no more freedom to buy private policies of your choice (only policies approved by the federal government). Small insurance companies, such as the one that took such incredibly good care of my husband during his illness, will very quickly be permanently out of business.
The Democrats KNOW that nationalizing health care is the single most effective step in making the USA a socialist country. Lenin said it first:
WE MUST DO WHATEVER IT TAKES IN THE NEXT TEN DAYS TO STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING!
Now is the time to act.
Over my dead ass.
There is nothing more we can do. IT is in God’s hands.
I never understood the reason for his campaign speech in Berlin. Seemed creepy.
Many Americans prefer socialism to capitalism, new poll finds
Obama offered “CHANGE!” Over 30% Democrats feel a change to Socialism from Capitalism would improve the USA.
President Reagan and Vladimir Lenin both held this belief in common; they both felt that Socialized or State Run and Provided Medicine was the key to enslaving a country!
Listen to Reagan’s concerns on socializing medicine and get others to listen too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRdLpem-AAs
The Democrats in Congress know this too. That is why they are willing to temporarily cede control and give up their seats, knowing once enacted, their dream of “CHANGE” will be started and it’s path will be irreversible.
