LET US SING OF THE OBAMACARE RELIGION!

Many people swoon for Obamacare:
O profound surpassing beauty, surpassing justice.
O universal healthcare, merely the IDEA of it…a force so strong it sweeps away all objections like a storm from the heavens.
O notion of universal healing…undeniably good; therefore, the program to enact it must be good. It will work. It will signal deliverance from pain. The future will confirm that.
O because the IDEA is good, the noble essence will eventually shine through. All will be served in the unfolding.
O this is more than law. It is an expression of the collective soul of humanity, and therefore it will bear fruit.
And O those who oppose the Plan are straying from the righteous path. They are exiled from The Group Mind.
Okay. There are millions of people who are convinced that a transforming Event is on the horizon. Its arrival will revolutionize life on planet Earth. The Change will be Good.
Possessed of that mindset, these people search for clues and signs. In Obamacare, they find one of those clues. It’s a little piece of heaven. It embodies faith, hope, and charity. It speaks to our better nature.
The facts don’t matter. How Obamacare will actually play out doesn’t matter. It only matters that these millions of acolytes can hear music and choirs.
Ever since an unknown Obama took the stage at the 2004 Democratic Convention, to deliver the keynote address, he has been imparting religious lingo, intoning religious rhythm, embodying the persona of the prophet and the healer of wounds.
That has been his shtick. His healthcare plan was and is a sub-category of his religious approach to “the downtrodden of the world.”
Who cares about the unpleasant fact that the US medical system kills 225,000 people a year? Who cares that the medical system is the third leading cause of death in America? Who cares that Obama’s lambs are being led to the slaughter?
This is RELIGION, which rises above such nasty inconveniences.
This is HOPE, TRANSFORMATION, and RESURRECTION in the doctor’s office.
Finally, “Americans who really care” have something to be proud of.
That’s the important thing, isn’t it? Why quibble about the difference between hope and false hope? Why worry about who is selling and who is being sold out?
I don’t know whether, in the fullness of time, pharmaceutical companies will erect a statue to Obama, but they certainly should, because their bottom-line abundance has just multiplied like sheaves of wheat.
Staying with agricultural metaphor for a moment, the dumbed-down chickens of our educational system are coming home to roost. Vapid cliches and stereotypes are clucking gloriously in the sun:
TREATMENT NEEDS TO BE MADE AVAILABLE TO ALL.
NO ONE SHOULD BE DENIED HEALING.
JUSTICE MUST RING OUT ACROSS THE LAND.
EVERYONE HAS A SACRED RIGHT TO A DOCTOR.
These are chapter headings in the new bible of medicine.
And people respond! They respond! They don’t comprehend the devastating effects of the medical cartel on human life, and they don’t want to comprehend them. The truth would disturb their reverie and their joy.
It would interrupt the organ music and the stately progression of adverse drug effects all the way to the funeral and the grave.
Leave us alone! We want hope and medicine! We want our fairy tales!
On a final practical note, because I don’t care to devote a whole article to the subject, the little shell game the US Supreme Court played the other day should make judges across the land want to burn their robes.
If people won’t buy Obamacare, they pay a penalty. But no, it’s not a penalty, because that would be unconstitutional. So let’s call it a tax. Let’s say you can now be taxed for NOT buying something.
Fom this day forward, the government can come after you on a brand-new basis: because you didn’t make a purchase you should have made.
“Sir, are you telling me you don’t want this Chevy Volt? It runs like a dream, although the dream can rapidly turn into a nightmare. But we all need to praise the Volt. It will add to the car’s sense of self-esteem, and as we all know, self-esteem builds performance. Making the Volt run well, without horrible problems, DEPENDS on the amount of praise we can heap on it. Therefore, if you don’t buy it, we will tax you. Sir, we’re not just talking about the sticker price, we’re talking about avoiding the “non-purchase tax” on top of the sticker price. You really need to think this through. Pay the tax and get nothing, or pay the sticker price and get the car. It’s up to you. If you walk out of the showroom without the Volt, when you get home an IRS agent will be waiting on your doorstep.”
I’m sure this has old-time religious parallels.
Donate generously to the Roman Church or go to Hell is one I can think of off the top of my head.
And if we want to extend the comparison to torture (bringing in The Inquisition), we have examples. I give you one now. It is not an isolated case. It is not something that only rarely happens in the US medical system. It is quite instructive, vis-a-vis medical destruction.
Take the case described by psychiatrist, Peter Breggin, in his landmark 1991 classic, “Toxic Psychiatry: Why Therapy, Empathy and Love Must Replace the Drugs, Electroshock, and Biochemical Theories of the ‘New Psychiatry'”. A young patient, Roberta, had been treated with a host of so-called major tranquilizers [AKA neuroleptics]. Peer-reviewed published studies support the use of these drugs: Haldol, Mellaril, Prolixin, Thorazine.
Breggin writes: “Roberta was a college student, getting good grades, mostly A’s, when she first became depressed and sought psychiatric help at the recommendation of her university health service. She was eighteen at the time, bright and well motivated, and a very good candidate for psychotherapy. She was going through a sophomore-year identity crisis about dating men, succeeding in school, and planning a future. She could have thrived with a sensitive therapist who had an awareness of women’s issues.
“Instead of moral support and insight, her doctor gave her Haldol. Over the next four years, six different physicians watched her deteriorate neurologically without warning her or her family about tardive dyskinesia [motor brain damage] and without making the [tardive dyskinesia] diagnosis, even when she was overtly twitching in her arms and legs. Instead they switched her from one neuroleptic to another, including Navane, Stelazine, and Thorazine. Eventually a rehabilitation therapist became concerned enough to send her to a general physician, who made the diagnosis [of medical drug damage]. By then she was permanently physically disabled, with a loss of 30 percent of her IQ.
“…my medical evaluation described her condition: Roberta is a grossly disfigured and severely disabled human being who can no longer control her body. She suffers from extreme writhing movements and spasms involving the face, head, neck, shoulders, limbs, extremities, torso, and back—nearly the entire body. She had difficulty standing, sitting, or lying down, and the difficulties worsen as she attempts to carry out voluntary actions. At one point she could not prevent her head from banging against nearby furniture. She could hold a cup to her lip only with great difficulty. Even her respiratory movements are seriously afflicted so that her speech comes out in grunts and gasps amid spasms of her respiratory muscles…Roberta may improve somewhat after several months off the neuroleptic drugs, but she will never again have anything remotely resembling a normal life.”
Oh, this could never happen. Oh, this is impossible.
Not only did it happen, it happens far more frequently than we imagine. The press does not cover it. The press is the PR arm of the secular medical religion, and Obamacare, bringing millions more people into the fold, is the new staircase into 225,000 deaths a year, 2.25 million deaths per decade, two million severe adverse drug reactions per year, 20 million severe reactions per decade.
But those figures illuminate the old church. The new church will be far bigger and therefore far more punishing.
