To the Editor:

If I were President Obama and what I really wanted was a “national health care system” to control a fifth of my country’s economy, under my complete and total control, where I could use “life-saving” health care to control the populace, this would be my plan:

I would create a health care system that requires private health care insurance companies to join it, for profit, and also every American by force of law, and then make sure that the system I set up was developed under the control of an incompetent hard-core left-wing ideologue Cabinet secretary who was completely loyal to me and who would dutifully divvy out hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer-funded contracts to my friends and supporters.

Then I would ensure that this health care system is so dysfunctional, unmanageable, cumbersome, expensive, frustrating, complicated and riddled with security concerns that it bankrupts those very insurance companies and scares off the hardworking “paying” populace so as to collapse the system I set up for them.

It would render more people uninsured then ever before, especially those who had insurance before and who desperately need to replace that insurance they had from their now-bankrupt insurance providers.

Then the populace would have to depend on me to “fix the problem,” which I would do by then imposing the very compulsory “national health care” system that gives me the control that I really wanted all along so that I can “rule” rather then “serve” the people.

Mr. Coet has hit the nail on the head!

Obama gave a speech at an AFL CIO Conference in 2003 advocating a single payer (government) heath care system. In the speech he said, the only way to get there is to "Take back the White House. Take back the Senate. And, Take back Congress."

This is not the speech of someone who believes in a democracy. This is the speech of a want-to-be dictator. He is doing exactly as he planned.

The only thing I look forward to is seeing the surprised look on the faces of the useful idiots when they become useless and are being sent away to a "camp" in the Alaskan wilderness... especially the faces of those who voted him into office twice!

Impeach...abuse of power.


What the writer has described, to me could be considered a Scam.
And could be considered , Criminal Fraud.
Yes I could believe what he's described and that this is what has happened.

It might be hard to accept at first since as far as the people have known, They have never been scammed as a whole by their government, the majority are trustful.
But there is always the 1st time time for everything.

If people can think for themselves instead of just being led by the nose,Because they're afraid to speak the truth out loud. Or admit they may have been duped.
Put all the facts together, and then think, are we really willing to accept/believe, that we are paying members of our government ,some hundreds of thousands of dollars, who have planned a program that has become such a catastrophe ?
But when the catastrophe happened, The Ones who were hands on (part of the planners) inside the government, Know nothing of how the catastrophe happened, they don't know who did it,who was responsible etc.etc.

And even though the public has had no hands on in the planning, They are going to be the ones,(especially the workers) your children, your older family members, your hard working friends, yourselves, who will have to suffer because of this 'program'.

I would think, The letter writers theory is very believable.
I would say 100% so.
