I spent HOURS yesterday, writing about PHILOSOPHICAL THINKING . . . OPPOSED TO CRITICAL THINKING, which was the Thought-Process, which got us to where we were BEFORE THE LEFT SEIZED POWER.
WE CAN'T KNOW HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM . . . if we don’t know from where the Problem Stems. And we CAN'T FIX THE PROBLEM by tinkering. It’s much like constructing a building on a CROOKED FOUNDATION, and then trying to FIX the Cracks in the Wall, the Spaces between the Windows and Frames, and the Buckling Floors with REMEDIAL Band-Aids.
WITH SOMETHING LIKE A BAD FOUNDATION . . . The remedy is easy. TEAR IT DOWN & START OVER, which was the purpose of Yesterday’s Editorial.
THE AMERICAN FOUNDATION IS SOLID:ONLY BECAUSE . . . The Founding Fathers and Framers of the American Constitution CONSTRUCTED, by the GENIUS OF CRITICAL THINKING, and/or perhaps as many would argue, because of the HAND OF GOD – These GREAT Men, in a period of EXCEPTIONALISM, laid the Corner-Stone to a Foundation that became an INDOMITABLE STRUCTURE that Made America Great . . . before the LEFT & RINOS Constructed upon it, a Superstructure with Bad Engineering and Sub-Standard Parts.
AND NOW THAT THE SUPERSTRUCTURE IS BEGINNING TO COLLAPSE . . .THE BAD NEWS . . . Is that America, and as a result, the Entire World is in TURMOIL, because the American Superstructure is in Collapse, and once it starts to keel over, there will be nothing to keep it from DESTRUCTION.
THE GOOD NEWS . . . Is that the American Constitutional Foundation is so STRONG & ROBUST, that after the DETRITUS is cleared away from the Collapse, an ENTIRELY NEW SUPERSTRUCTURE can be Constructed upon the EXISTING FOUNDATION, to restore America to where she came from.
THE CHALLENGE IS TWO-FOLD . . .1 – DURING THIS REBUILDING . . . There will be enormous Resistance from the LEFT & RINOS, as we can already see, since no one in Government, which includes all the Bureaucrats, will be willing to surrender their place at the TROUGH.
AND UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE . . . will Big Business, Big Labor, and the Ultra Privileged LEFT, who through their LOBBYISTS, which provide Political Intravenous to BOTH PARTIES, which Feeds and Succors their FREE RIDES . . . will relinquish any part of that, which provides all of them with their GRAVY TRAIN.
THERE WILL BE STRIFE:2 – AFTER THE TRANSITION . . . And while the Dust of Insurrection Clears, it WON'T BE EASY, since so much DAMAGE HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE by the LEFT & RINOS, that reconstruction is going to be a long and painful process. But as I wrote . . . THE GOOD NEWS, is that it WILL HAPPEN, as long as Conservatives are prepared to do whatever has to be done TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.
HOW IMPORTANT IS TRUST IN GOVERNMENT?I WILL START WITH THIS PREMISE . . . The Government is INCOMPETENT & DECEITFUL, and I am NOT WRONG. I will also make this Statement . . . that even Politicians who enter Office with the Best and Most Noble of Intentions, they are quickly CONSUMED BY THE SWAMP, and overwhelmed by the SCOPE & POWER of Governance and Washington DC.
AND KNOWING ALL OF THIS . . . we all have to assume – ALL THE TIME, that it’s ALWAYS US AGAINST THEM, and THEM are playing on their Own Team, which is TEAM GOVERNMENT & NOT TEAM CONSTITUENTS.
IF IT WERE TEAM CONSTITUENTS . . . Crooked Hillary would already be INDICTED. The Clinton Foundation would be Facing A Criminal Audit. Crooked Hillary Insiders would be Scrambling to Turn State’s Evidence to keep their Asses out of Jail. The Higher-Ups at the IRS would be behind Bars. And so probably, would be Members of the Justice Department, starting with the past Two Attorney Generals.
And Administrators of the NSA & FBI might also be looking for New Careers.
IT IS INDEED PROBABLE . . . that none of us should have ever held any of our Politicians in such a level of High Esteem and Trust. But, because of FDR (Democrat) and his New Deal, coupled with Johnson’s (Democrat) Great Society, all of which was carried-on and added-onto by VIRTUALLY ALL POLITICIANS, in order for them to BUY VOTES with the People’s Money . . . until the MIDDLE of the 20TH Century was just a TRICKLE of Deceit, had morphed into a TORRENT OF UNABASHED LIES & ABUSE.
When Nancy Pelosi INFAMOUSLY SAID about her “Affordable Healthcare Act” . . . “That you will have to first pass it to know what is in it” . . . Is when the people, should have Gathered-Up the Pitchforks, Tar and Feathers, and Run all of them out on a Rail . . . REPUBLICANS INCLUDED!
ISN'T ONE HEALTHCARE ABOMINATION ENOUGH?I’m watching with considerable interest, as Congress is putting together yet another HEALTHCARE ABOMINATION, selling it as NOT being part of Obamacare, as if that will make it good enough.
IF YOU THINK BACK TO MY LAST EDITORIAL . . . “How Many Angels Can Dance On The Head Of A Pin” . . . it is once again being illustrated in the INSANITY of Government with this new ITERATION of Public Healthcare
SO HERE I AM . . . Throwing My Two Cents Into The Great Healthcare Debate.
1 – Borrow from the Best of the Canadian System, while THROWING OUT THE WORST.
2 – Set-Up a Private System and a Public System.
3 – The Private System would be JUST THAT . . . a system to be ENTIRELY Paid by Private Institutions (Insurers), Users, Doctors, and Hospitals anywhere in the USA, with ZERO Public or Government Support.
4 – A Public System, where Doctors’ Fees are FIXED for all Procedures, where “Public” Hospitals can Charge JUST so much for rooms and procedures, unlike the CRIMINAL Insanity of how Hospitals charge today for everything from a Washcloth to a Band-Aid.
5 – ELIMINATE LAWYER LIABILITY SUITS . . . which in just about 100% of the cases, does NOTHING for Better Healthcare, and EVERYTHING for Parasite Lawyers.
6 – Each State should be 100% Responsible for Healthcare in their own State, and as in Canada, can honor each other’s Rules, Rates and Procedures to Provide Cross State Services . . . OR NOT.
7 – In the Public System, there would be no Restrictions based on Severity or cost of the Procedures, or on any Pre-Existing Conditions.
8 – And in the Public System, there would be ZERO Elective Procedures covered. For that, GO PRIVATE.
9 – AND SINCE I DON'T BELIEVE IN FREE RIDES . . . Unlike as it currently is in Canada, where everyone with a sniffle to a hangnail shows up for “care” at no charge, I strongly suggest that each Doctor would be paid as much as $20 Per Visit By The Patient, to perhaps a maximum of $1,000 On The Year, to keep out the Hypochondriacs . . . or at least to make them pay.
10 – And as in Canada, CONTROL THE COST OF MEDICATION, by the Awesome Power of the Government Purse, by buying LESS EXPENSIVE Drugs through COMPETITION, and reducing the Number of Years Drugs could be Patented.
SO WHAT THIS DOES - IS SIMPLE . . .a – It takes Healthcare TOTALLY out of the Hands of Politicians and Insurers.
b – It enables People to make their OWN Choices for Care . . . Private, Public, or a Combination thereof, which I do know something about, because, if we can't get Timely Care in the Province of Ontario, where Private Care is more or less AGAINST THE LAW, where Anne and I Live, we go to Quebec, which offers limited Private Care, and if that doesn’t work out, we simply Cross the Border, and go to the USA.
AND HOW DO WE PAY FOR ALL OF THIS?IN CANADA . . . Each Province is RESPONSIBLE for Charging and Maintaining its own PUBLIC SYSTEM. The Doctors and Hospitals are RESPONSIBLE for ADMINISTERING the Care from A-Z. The Government’s Job is to Collect and Pay.
The Federal Government also Provides FUNDS based upon the Number of People in each Province; but it’s entirely up to each Province to figure out how to Charge the People who Participate in the System. In some Provinces, each Company has to pay a percentage (around 4%) of their Employees’ Salary (Income) to the Government.
In other Provinces . . . each person who fills in a Provincial Tax - has a Healthcare Fee added to what they owe the Government based upon Income.
AND IF THERE’S NO STATE TAX . . . there’s always a Sales Tax, which to me is the FAIREST TAX of all, where a Percentage of each Sale could be added EXCLUSIVELY for Public Healthcare.
AND ANYONE WHO SAYS THAT CANADA’S HEALTHCARE SUCKS, DOESN’T HAVE A CLUE:CANADA’S HEALTHCARE IS FABULOUS . . . for anyone with a Preexisting, Acute, or Chronic Condition. THE PROBLEM WITH CANADIAN HEALTHCARE . . . is that it’s abused by the People who find every excuse to run to see a doctor, which can and would be solved if the people had to pay PERSONALLY every time they wanted to see a Physician.
THE OTHER PROBLEM . . . Is that more or less, there’s NO PRIVATE Alternative for most Canadians who want to Pay for Healthcare through their own pocket, or by way of insurance, which helps to Overload the System, Causing Unnecessary Delays in Care for Everyone.
AND IF YOU THINK THIS SYSTEM DOESN’T WORK . . . THINK AGAIN:Our Family Doctors (General Practitioners) earn well more than a couple of Hundred Thousand Dollars Per Year, with very little Concern for Liability. Isn't that generous enough?
Our Surgeons earn SERIOUS Money within the System, enough to live in Mansions.
NO BILLS . . . NO DEDUCTIBLES – NO CONFUSION:UNLESS YOU FALL THROUGH THE CRACKS - NO ONE IN CANADA . . . who is in Need of Serious Help, is ever Turned Away, or has to WAIT if the need is Critical . . . OR EVER HAS TO WORRY ABOUT PAYING THE BILL, since there are NO Bills.
BIG BROTHER NEED NOT APPLY . . . IT’S ONLY BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR DOCTOR:AND HOW DO I KNOW ALL OF THIS . . . ? I and every Canadian and Landed Immigrant I know, have been Recipients of Canada's Healthcare. And years ago, I sat on the Board of Directors of one of Canada’s Premier Hospitals.
AND NO POLITICIAN in Ottawa is deciding on How Many Angels Can Dance On The Head Of A HEALTHCARE Pin In Canada.
PS – THERE ARE VERY FEW GOOD GUYS IN AMERICAN HEALTHCARE. The Doctors, Hospitals, Insurers, Pharmaceuticals, Lawyers, Lobbyists & Politicians Are All Whores Out To Make As Much Money From Human Need & Suffering As They Can.
