Skip to comments.Proposed Meme: "Obamacare is Slavery"
Posted on 03/24/2010 10:31:18 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
We need to come up with something that summarize Obamacare and the damage it has done to the land of the free.
Comparing Obamacare to slavery seems completely legitimate and on-target, to me.
Am I wrong?
Yes, you’re wrong.
We don’t need a ‘meme’. We have the truth.
Communism —— Socialism -——————— Capitalism
Yes, it is.
Obama thinks that anyone not on welfare and can support themselves and family is rich. No matter what your annual salary is ....
The relationship between socialized healthcare and slavery isn’t exactly obvious, though I think your context is correct.
I like to call it “Obamao-Care”. Therein is an easily seen analogy.
And how, exactly, would you express that truth in sound-bite form?
Because that's all you get.
It is only Slavery for those who actually pay for it. For the others “it’s like Christmas”.
Bummercare is slavery for some, tyranny for all.
How about..."Entitlements enslave - Free the People"?
Did republicans ever give the CBO a more realistic set of assumptions for the current reform bills?
Would it have mattered?
Call it what it really is:
This is not Health Care, this is simply “More Government Taxation” or wealth redistribution.
Obama railed against the healthcare industry and yet he is making them some of the richest people in the world with all of the new people that now have to buy insurance.
I just can't wrap this stuff around my head.
If I owned a company that I knew was going to be out of business in 5-8 years, like most conservatives say, why would any investor take a chance and buy stock?
Jeff Head had the best meme for this: Obamacare - The Final Solution.
Even saw that graphic on a sign at last weekend’s DC protest.
I like it. Very good.
I don’t have a meme, but a slogan for our side could play off of Slow Joe’s words
( http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2477806/posts ):
“Repeal the (BF) Deal !”
Obviously, others disagree with me.
Here’s one aspect of the bill that is 100% slavery.
The Student loan portion included requires that re-payment also mandates a period of public service. Take a loan and you’re their slave.
I like it.
Republicans are still on TV saying they disagree with the CBO score, while dems are saying they got the CBO blessing. It's political war and Obama just got the upper hand back for a while. Republicans need to hold a paper on TV saying the CBO report says Obama-care will run up huge deficits.
VP Biden on Obamacare’s passage: “This is a big f-ing deal”.
grumpygresh: “Repeal the f-ing deal”
ObamaCare is Slavery
communism is slavery
obamacare is communism
one step further
Obamacare is the Democrat Party
The Democrat Party is Communism
Am I wrong?
No. In the words of Ronald Reagan: "We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness."
March 23rd, 2010 was a dark day for not only American liberty, but for the liberty of the world. We are heading back to that time prior to the establishment of the USA.
A free man can choose to fore go treatment he cannot afford and have the option of seeking help from his family, neighbors, and community: a slave will be denied treatment with no recourse. In the end, you have no healthcare, but in the first case you're still free. Is there really any choice?
People need to work as hard as they can to take as little as they can from the government. There is no free lunch. Let them build empty monuments to themselves. If we don't buy in, they lose the power.
If conservatives can't clearly explain why universal health care is wrong without resorting to sound-bites, we have more problems than any sound-bite will ever solve.
Because that's all you get.
How do you figure? Since I'm not buying commercial time, I'm not limited to a moment or a pithy phrase. Besides, limiting yourself to a catch phrase makes you look as though you don't know what you are talking about. You shouldn't need to regurgitate a canned response. There are clear and obvious dangers to universal health care to give any American pause.
Again, we need to be able to explain ourselves. It'll take more than a sound-bite, but I assure you that it shouldn't take more than a few minutes.
The guilded cage is being constructed around us as we watch. It is quite ironic that liberal women have for decades shouted against the gov’t telling women what to do with their bodies have lead the charge in having the gov’t tell everyone, including women, what to do with their bodies. We are on the road to serfdom.
I’m thinking more along the lines of Debtor’s Prison would eliminate any fake wailing of racial overtones.
The three “R”s of Obamacare: Repression, Redistribution, and Rationing.
It would appear that we have already failed.
Again, we need to be able to explain ourselves.
Explaining isn't the problem. You can explain all you want, but that doesn't mean anybody will listen.
Recall how the banks and credit card companies jacked up their rates and generally implemented more ways to screw their customers as soon as the law passed that said they had to stop doing that after a year.
Insurance companies will jack up their rates HARD asap in preparation for not being able to in the future. That’s good for the bottom line now, which is the only thing that matters to Wall Street.
Neat, saving it.

Folks I think a variation of the Robin Hood theme is a very good thing to use. The confiscation of the wealth of the people to give it to the ruling elite class, is very near what the poor peasants endured during Robin Hood’s era. Their legitimate King Richard had been imprisoned in Austria and his younger brother, John took over the throne and browbeat all the opposition including the peasants. Voila! Enter Robin Hood!!!
Hey, I already used that line.
Honestly, I think ‘slavery’ is a bit much. More like a protection racket. I think calling it slavery or akin to the Holocaust as someone else has here only makes us look crazy. It’s another social program we don’t want to pay for, with the added insult of forcing us to buy something. I don’t like it, and it stings, but it’s not quite the same as being strapped to a post and whipped for not picking enough cotton.
Isn’t it ironic the “first black president” has succeeded in enslaving us all?
All welfare, including Obamacare, is slavery. Any policy that steals the fruit of one’s labor in order to give it to another who did NOT earn serves to enslave the party that earned it.

I was just thinking, the Second Civil War will be about slavery too. We Americans have become slaves to our government.

Obama just gave them 30 million new customers, and a great deal of Wall Street money no longer comes from traditional sources investment companies but from hedge funds, investment banking firms, and from government itself. It’s all about the short money, not long-term growth.
I don’t even have a soundbite platform. Nor do I want one. This is not about soundbites. This is about telling people the facts. If all you have is a meme, then you need to get more because your meme will be countered.
That's pretty much what we've been doing.
Facts mean nothing to Obama's base. Obama's base just wants free stuff.
I think calling it slavery is overselling the case. Call it what it is, a Socialist boondoggle that will reduce freedom, and the quantity and quality of health care received for almost all Americans, while increasing costs exponentially.
Are you "free" to opt-out?
Nobody has seen how strongly this thing is opposed. The effort to eliminate this requires a coordinated effort from religious, cultural, corporate organizations all synchronized to bring this movement down with overwhelming political, cultural, and economic force. There is no way to be secure from this thing by merely repealling it. This whole movement requires a systematic marginalization from every angle not only to erase these bills from existence, but to stop it’s influences in the media and education establishments. Uprooting the weeds that are peppering the entire yard will take alot of work from alot of people. It will take about 50 years of vigilant, massive effort to get this nation back to some type of viable restoration. Politically deballing this president and replacing this congress is just a small starting point.
If you pay the fine you can. I despise HusseinCare, but calling it “slavery” is going to cause people to roll their eyes, not join the fight.
As perverse as this sounds, I believe our salvation will be in the economic collapse that is about to envelop us.
People who have depended upon the government's proverbial "safety net" will be in deep doo-doo. People who have prepared by stocking up on food and other necessities will survive. People who have not prepared will have to turn to crime, and that could be very dangerous for them.
It won't be fun, but for those people who manage to survive five or ten years, it will be a new beginning.
