Last night I had a crazy dream
A wish was granted just for me
It could be for anything
I didnt ask for money
Or a mansion in malibu
I simply wished, for one more day with you ~Diamond Rio
We all know someone who has died. We go through stages of grief. We all know we would do whatever we could, pay whatever price, sacrifice all we had, just to say I love you one more time to that loved one. If someone had said to us, “You should tell her to die, she is a drain on the economy” I would go ballistic and inflict bodily harm on that person. Not only would I be angry at the insinuation that my love one should die, but I would be livid if my loved one had overheard their statement.
Enter Obamacare. In the enormous bill Congress and the Senate are trying to pass, there is a little clause. It states that a health care practitioner should counsel those on Social Security to end-of-life services. They should make sure the elderly person has a will, durable power of attorney…so on and so forth. This counseling should take place every five years. It also states that the mandatory death counseling will ‘‘(A) An explanation by the practitioner of advance care planning, including key questions and considerations, important steps, and suggested people to talk to.” That is so vague because of the scary implications here people. Basically, every senior citizen will be told, “You’re old, you are going to die soon, lets figure out how this can be a good thing for the both of us”. Basically, we want you dead.
I remember reading something similar to this once. I was sitting here and it hit me. That sounds exactly like another national health care plan from another country. Nazi Germany. Hitler had a bill called the “Action T4”. Allso called Euthanasia Program, under the Third Reich spanning almost three years, physicians killed 70,273 people. Hilter sent out a secret memo, on his own stationary where he said suffering patients “judged incurably sick, by critical medical examination”. The physicians then murdered those elderly people or mental patients. It was seen as an advancement of our species. Weed out the old, the weak, the troubled, and the dependent.
Eerily similar in my opinion. We look at Hitlers regime and think, how did he get so many people to go along with horrific orders and carry out heinous crimes? They believed him. Thats how. They believed this charismatic man was a genius, and would never lead them astray. We see this happen all the time with Obama. The country stays faithful to him. They believe the rhetoric that is spewed towards him while the rest of stare blankly at the television confused at the double speak and spin.
It all boils down to this.
Life is no longer precious.
Babies are dispensable, senior citizens are dispensable, the mentally challenged are dispensable. No one matters in this linear way of thinking. What is to stop him from saying your life is not worth anything either? We’re on a slippery slope to tyranny and all of us must realize the problem and fight it.
Knowing my tax dollars are going to fund abortions outraged me. Knowing my tax dollars are going to save a company that failed to thrive on its own made me angry. Knowing I paid for terrorists to leave Gitmo and buy a condo exasperated me. Knowing I will now pay to someone tell my Papaw he is too old and needs to die…makes me indignantly livid.
“Mandatory Death Counseling” should change its name to what it really is, “The Jack Kevorkian Plan”.
