Re: Obama Healthcare & Being Anti-Gun
It's not the fact that it's openly anti-gun, per se. Its' the fact that some of the wording can be twisted around by the gov't to restrict people's ownership of firearms. Such as the stipulation that everyone MUST have gov't approved insurance under penalty of fine levied by the IRS (i.e., a tax) or prison, but that the gov't run medicare-type program can be denied to someone who lives a "dangerous lifestyle." And who decides what a "dangerous" lifestyle is? Kathrine Seblius, that's who. And remember, she's very anti-gun. There's also the part that would allow ANY gov't agency to go trolling through your medical records at any time and without your permission. That includes ATF. Nevada Harry even admitted that there was the possibility for trampling on people's 2nd Amendment rights in the Senate bill, so he had some "firearms protection" lines added as a sop to try and get support for it. But the main thing is that this bill will give the feds invasive control over the very minutae of our lives, and once they have that kind of control, they WILL want more.
Just say NO to AdolfCare.
History is much like an endless waltz. The three beats of war, peace, and revolution continue on forever.
Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges - Cicero
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
