This story breaks my heart. A young child with cancer has lost insurance because of the ACA:
This is by design. President Obama didn’t have to interpret the “keep your existing plan” clause in the ACA so restrictively that he virtually assumes legislative powers and erases the clause, but he chose to do so, on purpose. (Read page 99, Sec. 1251) He wants to drive everyone off their existing plan and onto a plan where the top 4/5ths of wage earners pay for Cadillac health plans for the bottom 1/5th- most of whom are 20-somethings that don’t need plans anyway. President Obama wanted this young child to lose his insurance. He wants everyone to, so that he can crash the system and replace it with Marxist single-payer. In fact, the story works in his favor because even though he is single-handedly the author of this boy losing his insurance, President Obama can pretend to blame it on the free market and lobby to replace it with Communist style cradle-to-grave government control over health, life and death (see Article 24). He admitted that this is what he wants at a private union meeting in 2008 . If you voted for him because you don’t follow government issues and believed his lies a year and a half ago, you need to learn the basics of how the U.S. government is supposed to operate, start following politics and never vote for another Progressive again. You could also consider calling your representatives in Washington D.C. (202-224-3121, just give your zip code) to demand immediate defunding and full repeal of the ACA. Especially when you think that a child with cancer lost their health insurance because of the ACA.

Just read a tragic story about police tasing a father who was simply trying to get into a burning building trying to save his three year old son:
Here is why this happened –
In the mind of enlightenment thinking in general, and Marxist socialism in particular, people are simply “the masses”. They are only products of evolution and genetics because there can surely be no God (after all, we’ve never seen evidence of Him! We’ll accept a binary radio signal from space if we find it but we’ll discount a quaternary programming language capable of programming a human being!). Therefore all powers reside with the State, period. The State allows people to have rights or not. In this world view, nobody is guilty of crimes because they are the product of society. So all of society must pay for crime, not the criminal. In the same way, people are not allowed to perform heroics or acts of self defense, because that is only the role of the State. If people try to resist crime, or defend themselves, or be heroes, they MUST be prosecuted and thrown in jail. After all, they are bucking the system, and that’s dangerous! Meanwhile, people die as victims of crime, they die from not being able to protect themselves, and they die waiting for police and fire responders who, if a situation looks remotely dangerous, will many times just wait on the sidelines and sort out the bodies afterwards. In a very real way, it’s like playing God. You know the old phrase, “Let God sort them out”? If pure humanism and naturalism is all that informs one’s belief of an original cause and decision making, and is the only standard for one’s ethics, then they are in effect worshipping mankind and nature. That is what functions in the place of religion in their life. So it’s only natural that they would believe the State gets to play God. Many people in positions of leadership in the government these days effectively do believe government is equal to what we would consider God, having all assumed powers and rights over individuals, as well as having assumed responsibility for imposing morality over people. There couldn’t be a more stark contrast between this view and the Judeo Christian values our nation was founded on, that, “…all men are…endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights…among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness …” People should have liberty to oppose criminals, defend themselves and try to protect others. If the current logic of the police were played out in the situation with the burning house and the three year old, on 911 the police would have stood outside the World Trade Towers and tased the people trying to go inside as first responders. Think about that. When the State plays God, people are coerced into a role of standing by and watching other pepole die.

Rand Paul sent out a video supporting the idea of a Life At Conception Act. The video is at:
I agree with this message. DNA proves that life in the womb is an innocent human individual. The idea that it isn’t a human individual, or that it is only tissue, is a form of myth which crumbles in the face of indisputable science. My sincere wish is for full healing for anyone who has gone through abortion. Legally, the practice is akin to the concept of slavery, with both reasoning that although this may be a human individual it somehow has less value or rights than other’s lives do. The stated reasoning in both Roe v. Wade and Dred Scott was stated in terms of, (close paraphrase), “is this life really a person? We don’t think so…” I believe abortion must also eventually go the way of slavery. There can be no moral defense for willfully taking another human individual’s life when that individual has their entire life ahead of them. Sadly, I believe many people experience cognitive dissonance, or allow themeselves to be deceived into not really believing they are taking an innocent life. But it’s impossible to escape reality. Forgiveness is the road to healing and the truth really does set us free.
