Maybe We Really Can’t All Just Get Along

The fact that 62% of bankruptcies are caused by medical costs has nothing to do with Obamacare one way or another. And there is nothing that Obamacare will do to bring down costs to us, the patients. One possible outcome is a drastic reduction in the number of doctors. A guaranteed outcome is a gigantic loss of privacy, in that the government will eventually have access to everyone's medical data, will gain access to your personal bank accounts as well. At first, some people will be able to keep their private policies, but the costs continue to rise, and eventually, we'll end up with one gigantic mess run by the highly inefficient government. And if you don't like the response they give you, to whom will you complain then?

Those in favor of Obamacare don't actually know what it will mean. They only know what they want it to mean, and they will be disappointed, especially after 10 years, when all the money is gone.

We are all in the process of losing our rights to our own bodies, which is interesting, since it flies in the face of the legal basis for Roe v. Wade.

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
