The American taxpayer now pays the defense bill for the Western World. Other than America, not one single country in the developed world pays its own way on defense, not one single country can transport or field a military force large or powerful enough to defend itself. Not one single country has the ability to deploy a blue-water Navy to aid tsunami victims or to ensure regional peace.
Why is this important in the health care debate?
- The primary role of government is defense of its territory and citizens,
- Money is fungible.
The tax burdens placed on citizens of the developed world are not being spent on defense only because American taxpayers pay for that defense, allowing those local tax dollars to be spent on social programs and socialized healthcare. Because of 1, above, however, this really means that the American taxpayer is paying for the socialized medical care of the developed world as these countries, not having to pay for their first priority, defense, move that tax revenue to socialized healthcare.
Yep, the same countries that routinely lambaste America’s lack of socialized medicine only are able to do so because the American taxpayer pays their medical bills.
If America pulled its troops, reneged on its defense alliances, and dropped its defense budget to pay only for the defense of America , then the non-American West would have to pay for its own defense. Socialized healthcare would disappear across the developed world. So would the countries reliant on America defending them.
Americans already are paying the medical bill for the developed world. At the same time we do all of the medical technology R&D and all of the drug R&D globally.
What will socialized medicine in America mean to the world?
The only way America can fund this program is to borrow trillions from the Chinese. As above, that means the Chinese will be paying our defense bill – and that of the developed world, while we pay for our healthcare. At the same time, med-tech and drug R&D will come to a standstill, as that occurs only in America.
These are the facts. They are not in the debate for unknown reasons – unless one is cynical enough to assume Obama knows this, and wants to destroy the defense of the West – and unless one has the critical understanding that the GOP is too stupid to recognize threats to civilization far more serious than homosexuality and abortion.
Once China comes to grips with the fact that America can NEVER pay-back this money, that America has become a truly un-serious nation, that American never will grow-up, why will China continue investing in America’s debt? No reason.
Why would China continue to fund the defense of their primary strategic opponent in the coming century? They won’t.
Then Congress, having to choose between funding defense or healthcare, will choose healthcare because of whining, spoiled, ill-educated Baby Boomers.
And the defense of the West will disappear. But that’s OK, right? We can all “get along.” Right.
Regional arms races will occur and accelerate. Smaller countries with no ability to defend themselves will disappear (see: Georgia). Nuclear exchanges between long-time enemies surely will occur: Israel-Iran, Iran-Saudi Arabia, North Korea-South Korea, Japan-North Korea, India-Pakistan).
The world will become extraordinarily unstable, dictatorships will become the rule rather than the disappearing few they were until Obama’s reign of terror.
Tens of millions will die.
Because Americans have elected a dictator who is destroying our economy, our defense and our healthcare.
But for the simple reason of his ideology, and Baby-Boomer-supported unionized mal-education of American voters for two generations – no one is complaining.
This devolution of democracy on a global scale will not be pretty. It will be historically extraordinarily fast.
And millions will die in the socialization of the planet – just as Mao killed 80M in the Cultural Revolution and Great Leap Forward, as Stalin killed 30M in the induced Ukrainian famine and purges of the 1930s, as Pol Pot killed 3M in Cambodia.
At the end of this historical transition to tyranny, all human rights of the West will have been snuffed out. The democrats in their insistence on socialized perfection will have destroyed the cultures based on the Enlightenment, the Renaissance, the Reformation. The ONLY culture in which rights exist: Human Rights, Women’s Rights, Children’s Rights, Gay Rights – the West – will cease to exist.
Why? Because of a fundamental lack of understanding of the way in which the world actually works. Because of a tyrannical dictator named Obama who is destroying America and the West as we not only acquiesce to, but strongly support his policies. Because America’s leaders refuse to look at the global picture and make the hard choices necessary for freedom, liberty and Western Civilization to survive.
It is bad. It is going to get far worse. Unless Obama is removed from power – soon, and unless Congress wakes-up and begins educating itself and then America on the choices being made, unless Americans realize immediately that today’s Democrats are illiberal, tyrannical, anti-freedom, anti-liberty and anti-American, America will, simply, be destroyed.
This is not about healthcare. It is about tyranny and the destruction of Western Civilization from within.
And the Tyrants are winning the debate.
