America is fast approaching what a third world nation is.
It is too dangerous to go out at night without the fear of being robbed, raped, or murdered. We have bolted doors and reinforced windows in some of our cities. Have you seen some of the banks these days where the bank teller is behind a thick glass curtain?
The United States still has a lot of things to be proud of. We have the greatest military on Earth. Our science facilities are the best. Our technological know-how (think Silicon Valley) compares to none. Our farmers and farmland have always been motivated. Our healthcare system is able to provide the best quality of care in the world. There are more but we’ll leave it here.
We already know Obama is snipping away at our military prowess. We realize that our scientific and technological know-how is being thwarted by high taxes and regulations. Farmers are being thwarted by crazy environmental regulations. Now it seems like the only thing left is to take the healthcare system down a notch or two or three.
It is pretty depressing when you take a step back and think of low we have gone in just the past decade.
And that is why Ted Cruz’s video is so applicable.
“Obamascare: Coming to a mailbox near you”. What is Obamascare? It is the fright that the letter from your health insurance provider is going to give when it says your policy is no longer available for purchase. Sure you can get another provider but it is going to cost you an arm and a leg to get it. Sure there will be subsidies available to the poor but what bout the middle class or upper middle class? They will feel squeezed even more. All so that the government can siphon off cash from the American taxpayer to redistribute more of it to those that don’t want to work and to big multi-billion dollar insurance companies. This is not capitalism. This is Obamanomics, a land where Obama’s voters and donors are rewarded.
