Descending into the darkness

One of the features of Soviet-style leadership was everything for the ruling elite, while the masses where left with little or nothing.

This is happening here. The health care legislation is just the third step in the process (step 1 and 2 involved the auto and banking industries). Government control of our major industries is called facism (state-owned). But the bill won't affect federal employees, including our Representatives, Senators or President.

The bill that succeeded a test vote in the house the past weekend is "atrocious," according to the Washington Post's Robert Samuelson. The bill only passed its test vote because certain Senator's states where provided with hundred of millions of dollars in "pork" for pet projects. These amount to bribes, but only in name, not legality.

Obama said this morning his health care plan will lower the deficit by $132 billion over the next 10 years (while blaming all of our current problems on Bush. Are we tired of that yet?). This is a lie. No report, no study, has been able to substantiate that. Deficits will not only increase, but skyrocket. Obama's deficit for the first year is higher than all of Bush's eight years. Goverment will have to print more money, causing inflation. In fact, there is not enough money in the world to finance the Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda. And that's according to the Chinese.

Taxes will go up, costs will go up, unemployment will go up. Our economy will falter, if not sink back into recession or depression. Everyone -- except those who work for the federal government -- will be poorer.

And still, this program will not provide everyone with heath care.

Has this happened somewhere before? If you don't know the answer to that, then you don't know history.
