The Doctor Will Kill You Now

The doctor will kill you now Posted: July 23, 2009 1:00 am Eastern

By Andrew Longman © 2009

I have commented before that the purpose of socialized medicine is not health care, but rather government-run death care. The choker bill presently being rammed down America's throat in the Congress is no exception. In light of the recent history where hospitals have forcibly dehydrated people to death, everyone should pay attention to their gag reflex.

On page 430 of the 2009 Death Care Act we find:

(B) The level of treatment …may range from an indication for full treatment to an indication to limit some or all or specified interventions … (iv) the use of artificially administered nutrition and hydration.

What "level of treatment"? Huh?

Buried in the arcane Death Care Act's 1,000 pages of detail is this little description of how the government will dictate to you, educate you and control your very survival with an "order regarding life sustaining treatment."

See, you might give "indications" that the "specified interventions" known as "nutrition and hydration" need to be taken away from you. The vigilant government...

NEW YORK TIME
OCT.7,1933
by AP- Berlin

NAZIS PLAN TO KILL INURABLES TO END PAIN;
German Religious Groups Oppose Move

Berlin, Oct. 7.- The Ministry of Justice in a detailed memorandum explaining the Nazi aims regarding the German penal code today announced its intention to authorize physcians to end the sufferings of incurable patients.

The memorandum, still lacking the force of law, proposed that “it shall be made possible for physicians to end the tortures of incurable patients, upon request, in the interests of humanity,”
........................................................................................
In Medical circles the question was raised as to just when a man is incurable and when his life should be ended.

According to the present plans of the Ministry of Justice, incurability would be determined not only by the attending physcian, but also by two official doctors who would carefully trace the history of the case and personally examine the patient.

In insisting that euthanasia shall be permissable only if the accredited attending physcian is backed by two experts who so advise, the Ministry believes a guarnatee is given that NO LIFE STILL VALUBLE TO THE STATE WILL BE WANTONLY DESTROYED. (emphasis mine)................................

I’ve got more if anyone is interested.

Dear Governor Perry,

On March 30, 2009 the Texas House of Representatives passed HCR 50 affirming that the State of Texas claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment.

You have publicly supported this bill, and stated that attorney generals from all over the union could be getting ready to sue the US Government.

We are asking you to take the lead.

We are asking you to order the Texas Attorney General to publicly begin working on a law suit under Article IV, Ninth, and Tenth Amendment of the Constitution.

We are asking you to protect the citizens of Texas that we will not stand for government controlled healthcare in our state.

Under your leadership we can effectively kill the proposal of this administration and allow Texas to be a state free from socialism and collectivism.

Be the voice of reason in the national debate and allow Texans the ability to solve the problems of our state.

Thank you,

From ‘Texans Against Government Controlled health Care’
http://www.notintexas.org/

To all Texas elected officials:

“Don’t Mess with Texas” has been a proud motto in the Lone Star State. Now with Government controlled socialized healthcare appearing inevitable, we say “NOT IN TEXAS!” We ask our elected officials to cite the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as the reason why Texas rejects and will not accept the U.S. Government takeover of our healthcare system!

The 10th Amendment states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

States’ rights, in the United States, is political doctrine advocating the strict limitation of the prerogatives of the federal government to those powers explicitly assigned to it in the Constitution of the United States, and reserving to the states all other powers not explicitly forbidden them. The doctrine of states’ rights has been the cause of bitter controversy at several periods in U.S. history.

The impending death of free market healthcare is an important issue that will again cause bitter controversy.

If the cause of defending our free market healthcare is a worthy cause, we in Texas must stand up and say: “NOT IN TEXAS”.

We in Texas will not stand idly by and allow the U.S. Federal Government to eliminate our free market healthcare system by incrementally changing and ultimately replacing it with a Government controlled socialized Healthcare system.

“NOT IN TEXAS”

Where are the Texas politicians?

The Alliance of Texans against Government Controlled Healthcare is insisting upon the immediate action of all Texas Politicians. Tell the U.S. Government: Government controlled healthcare may be adopted in other states, but…NOT IN TEXAS.

Tell the U.S. Government that Government Controlled Healthcare will never be allowed in Texas. Texans still believe in individual freedom and individual responsibility.

The saving of our free market healthcare system is one of the most important tasks ever to face Texas.

When are we going to hear Texas politicians saying: “The Government Controlled Socialized Healthcare stops at the Texas border!”

The Texas citizens are waiting to hear from you. We don’t have much time. President Obama wants a healthcare bill out by August 1st.

Tell the news media loud and clear: “NOT IN TEXAS”

We hope to see and hear your stand in the media in the next days to come.

P.S. Once Texas politicians make their stand, you will see other states standing up for State’s rights. Let the Lone Star state of Texas stand first.

From Texans Against Government Controlled Health Care

http://www.notintexas.org/

Facts about the 10th Amendment:

The Tenth Amendment (Amendment X) of the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791. The Tenth Amendment restates the Constitution’s principle of Federalism by providing that powers not granted to the national government nor prohibited to the states are reserved to the states or the people.

Why Texans should fight National Healthcare:

When all of America’s top health insurers and providers met at the White House this week and pledged to save $2 trillion over the next decade in health costs, they were pledging to sabotage our medical care. The blunt truth, which everybody (the politicians and healthcare providers) agreed to keep quiet, is that the only way to reduce these costs is to ration healthcare, thereby destroying our system. http://www.notintexas.org/Front_4.htm

>Cutting Doctors’ fees will reduce access. Your doctor may not accept the government health plan. Congress is wanting to cut Medicare fees by 21 percent. Cuts in Medicare reimbursements will spill into the government health plan and ultimately limit the number of doctors and hospitals that will accept the government plan.

>Much like the HMO’s of the 80’s your doctor access will be restricted to the few doctors who will accept the socialized plan.

>Limiting the availability of doctors and hospitals will have many devastating effects. Most threatening are:

>Over crowding waiting rooms

Backlog of medical testing i.e. CAT scans, MRI, PET scans etc...

>Rationing of Health Care

>Reduction of quality college students choosing medicine as a profession.

>With our aging population, quality health care providers needed now more than ever.

>We can pay with our lives. The federal government want us to believe they can “mandate away” 2 trillion dollars of medical expenses. We have learned from our friends from the north (the Canadians), the best way to reduce cost is to ration care.

>Government bureaucrats will pour over data and decide what the best means of care will be for the largest number of patients.
If medical condition differs from the government guidelines, it will NOT be paid by the government.
Should your doctor(s) decide the government allowed treatment is not for you, your doctors hands will be tied. If you don’t have the financial means to pay for your treatment elsewhere, it could cost you your life.
In Canada, colonoscopies are rationed for colon cancer. Canada’s colon cancer rate is 25 percent higher than in the U.S. even though Canada’s population is smaller.

>We know from history, once a government program of this nature is passed, whether it is a total failure or not, it will NEVER be rescinded.

Solution:

Texans can reject, and refuse to pay for, the federal government health plan. Texas will attract the BEST trained, MOST experienced doctors (and upcoming doctors) in the country. Texas will be the envy of every state in the union.

The truth about government controlled healthcare:
Government healthcare is failing miserably in Massachusetts
If you think a government run healthcare system can work and be more affordable, read this... http://www.notintexas.org/Front_5.htm

Article from the Washington Examiner 1/11/09:
“Obama’s health policy advisers should take a good look at the smoldering wreckage in the Bay State before trying to impose any such “universal coverage” on the rest of the nation.” Link http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/Universal_coverage_First_look_at_the_disaster_in_Massachusetts_011109.html

Medicare - What is all the fuss about?
Medicare (and health insurance) is a political football. The aging baby boomers are currently contributing more tax dollars to the Medicare Trust Fund than they ever will again in our lifetime. In 2011, the first baby boomers will become eligible for Medicare, and many of them will retire, no longer contributing to the tax base.
Instead, they will become consumers of the Medicare system and begin to tap into the very funds they contributed to Medicare for more than 40 years. Within a few decades, we will suffer massive deficits caused by Medicare, Medicaid (welfare—long term care) and Social Security.
There is simply not a way to finance the Medicare system long term by raising taxes. Even if taxes were raised by 50 percent of the current rate, there still would not be enough money to fund the Medicare Part A Trust Fund for the long term.
The current Part A trust is expected to pay more than it takes in by 2019, and some are estimating this will begin to occur as early as 2016.

HCR 50 HAS PASSED THE HOUSE 99-36!
Affirming that the State of Texas claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution, serving notice to the federal government to cease and desist certain mandates, and providing that certain federal legislation be prohibited or repealed.

Take Action! Before it is too late!

Hello all. Here is a link to a blog Charlie Daniels writes. He is not a big fan of ObamaCare, or Obama for that matter. The title is “Gathering Storm Clouds.” Not sure if I can post the whole blog, but here is an excerpt:

“Remember the liberal battle cry, ”Bush lied, people died?” How about, ”Obama’s lying, old people will be dying?”

What gives the government the right to decide when you die? That’s God’s decision and God’s decision alone, and the way I see it any attempt to end life before God does is usurping divine rights and woe be to the ones who take it on themselves to make that decision.”

Enjoy.

you are dehydrated to death to save Barack money.

I expect it to be more "friendly" than that, as with the provision for senior citizens to receive "end-of-life choices" counseling.

As people get old and feeble, they become more dependent, and trusting, of others.

So, it will become easier to convince them to "take this nice little IV full of morphine, 'cause it will make you feel sooooo much better......"

All four of my grandparents died slowly and painfully in their twilight years, due to various ailments, but as far as I know there was no talk among them or their children of "end-of-life choices".

It was just expected they would stick it out to the end. It was those old-fashioned Christian beliefs that made them believe that you have to take what life gives you, I think.

Guess this is a different time.

Since one poster has mention the dehydration of Patients, I thought this might enlighten a few.

From: The Records of the United States Nuernberg War Crimes Trials
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA V. KARL BRANDT ET AL.
NOVEMBER 21, 1946-aUGUST 20, 1947 (National Archives- Washington D.C.)
Case I (medical case) 23 Defendants

Dr Brandt ran a hospital and worked on a prototype for the ovens of the Death Camps.. While developing the most efficient method of exterminating the “useless eaters” , found starvation to be inefficient. Due to the fact the nursing staff slipped food to the patients. Therefore, the SS was brought in to use lethal injection. the hospital was empty at the end of their stay. This provided Brandt with his opportunity to test his prototype of the Death Camp Ovens.

This from email---

The Perfect Solution to Senior Health Care and believe me, it's tempting

While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my friend the other day, I think we have found the solution. I am sure you have heard the ideas that if you are a senior you need to suck it up and give up the idea that you need any health care. A new hip? Unheard of. We simply can't afford to take care of you anymore. You don't need any medications for your high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, etc. Lets take care of the young people. After all, they will be ruling the world very soon.

So here is the solution. When you turn 70, you get a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 representatives. Of course, you will be sent to prison where you will get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head and all the health care you need! New teeth, great! Need glasses, no problem. New hip, knee, kidney, lung, heart? Well bring it on. And who will be paying for all of this. The same government that just told you that you are too old for health care. And, since you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income tax.

Thank you. I am gearing up for the fight again and I will not back down in any way this time. My mother has 4th stage breast cancer and will be counseled about hospice in the next week or two. Over my dead body while screaming to the media, they will NOT do to her what they did to my stepfather and my mother-in-law.

I have posted the nightmare with my stepfather on FR a couple times. My mother in law’s story is recent. The hospital nurses lied when asked about providing hydration, I found the evidence to contradict what my husband was told online in Stanford’s end of life protocol. She went to the hospital for slight shortness of breath and mild confusion, but died 8 days later. She was diabetic, they never checked her levels and they gave no insulin. They kept assuring my husband she was improving amd would go home on Thurs. My father in law was not sure what was going on, but kept repeating she was going home on Thurs. On Fri we were told she was in a coma and on Fri afternoon she was transferred to the hospice wing of the hospital. My husband flew out Sat morning. He found her in a bed no sheets or blanket in a short nightgown. He arrived a the hospital at 6PM she passed away around 9PM. He questioned the nurses about the lack of hydration and demanded a blanket to cover her. His father is now sort of waking up from the fog and is worrying about why knowing she was diabetic they never tested her levels nor gave insulin. She was alert eating and drinking when admitted. After admission there was no food nor water given and no tests of her sugar levels, coma within days, who’s surprised?

I just want to scream from the rooftops. WAKE UP AMERICA IT ALREADY HAPPENS!

Many years ago, doctors and hospitals went all out to keep people alive. Some of these measures were termed “heroic”, and many people were upset that their doctor was not listening to them, and they were being kept alive artificially and they were not being allowed to die with dignity.

The legislators responded, and now you can write up medical directives and living wills, to allow your medical representative to pull the plug should you not be able to.

My recent experience when my dad was in intensive care was very different than it was 30 years ago. The culture of death is already pervasive.

Within 2 minutes of his intubation, a rat-faced dr. with a weird accent, was telling me to let him go-and painting a dire picture.

If you are on medicare, and insist on living, this hospital will then push you to have a trach and peg within 1 day of entering the ICU, so they can ship you to a long-term acute care unit (found in large metropolitan areas).

They tell you this is necessary to “wean you off the ventilator”. The real story is: that you are costing them money for every additional day, and transferring you saves their bottom line.

When you enter the hospital, they ask you your code status.
Full code means all measures are to be tried to keep you alive.

Code 2 means many options will be tried, but so called heroic measures such as cpr, ventilation tube, artificial nutrition, hydration, defibrillation, are not allowed.

Code 3 means comfort measures only. You get drugs to prevent your pain, no antibiotics, no heart medication, etc.
nothing that would “interfere with the natural art of dying”.

Of course, there are all sorts of variations such as Full code except for CPR, for example. Crickets are chirping as long as you don’t want to try to live too long.

But should you be elderly, and desire to try all the wonderful medical options, that God has allowed man to develop, then they will twist your relative’s arm, and imply they are being cruel by trying to keep you alive.

You DO want him to control wasteful healthcare spending and balance the budget, don't you??

Yes, his DeathCare plan will do the exact opposite.

I’m ravenously interested if this is original source material, not parody.

OMG! If only all of the states would follow gov Perry’s lead. That would shove Zero’s deathcare bill right up his hindside! Any state that invokes the 10th Amendment & does not abide this deathcare bill....that is the state I will move to!

Kudos to Gov Perry

My God! Very well stated! These are my thoughts exactly. If I or my loved ones get denied treatment to save our lives, when there is treatment available....oooooooooeeeee!

I will not go quietly...especially when I think of those wretched, poor excuses for human beings who voted on this bill!

Dr Brandt ran a hospital and worked on a prototype for the ovens of the Death Camps.. While developing the most efficient method of exterminating the “useless eaters” , found starvation to be inefficient. Due to the fact the nursing staff slipped food to the patients. Therefore, the SS was brought in to use lethal injection. the hospital was empty at the end of their stay. This provided Brandt with his opportunity to test his prototype of the Death Camp Ovens.

Closer than we think.

I think it is very important.

You might even want to think of a mega thread with all the information. Something that people can peruse, or maybe many threads on different issues and a mega thread with the links to them all. I would read every single one and I am sure many of us would.
