Vote Republican? Bah!
June 29, 2012 by Bob Livingston
The Supreme Court ruling to uphold Obamacare strikes to the heart of an argument used by the Republican Party to accept the unconservative and unpalatable candidates — Mitt Romney, John McCain, George W. Bush, Bob Dole, George H.W. Bush — it continues to hoist as its standard bearers for President: You must vote Republican in order to ensure conservatives are appointed to the bench.
So-called “conservative” Chief Justice John Roberts (appointed by George W. Bush) joined decidedly activist justices appointed by Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to allow the Federal government to force Americans into government-run healthcare programs or pay a penalty.
Of course, healthcare in America should rightfully be called deathcare. There is no desire from the mainstream medical community to cure disease. There is too much money to be had from continually treating disease and making people sick through government-mandated vaccinations.
The elites and bureaucrats who run government and the regulatory agencies accept big money from Big Pharma and the conventional medicine cabal to restrict healthcare choices. They frown on alternative medicine. Their public relations arm in the mainstream media works overtime to deride alternative treatments, natural supplements and healthy eating choices as quackery.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is doing all it can to quash the supplement industry. It restricts access to natural foods like raw milk. It allows genetically modified foods to be passed off as natural and approves the use of harmful hormones and antibiotics in poultry, beef and pork. Its so-called well-regulated Big Agriculture processing plants are rife with harmful bacteria (creating disease and sparking recalls) and the egregious treatment of farm animals. Small, organic farms are forced out of business, despite producing healthier products.
The Food and Drug Administration pushes drug use and approves drugs that come with warning labels a mile long and allows big food companies to use unhealthy additives (like high fructose corn syrup) and call imitation fruit products real fruit, but prevents sellers of all-natural products like walnuts and cherries from touting their health benefits.
So now, thanks to a “conservative” Supreme Court appointee, more bureaucrats get to decide what is and what isn’t acceptable medicine. Yeah, let’s count on Republicans to preserve our rights.
