Using Ted Kennedy to Pass Healthcare Overhaul

September 6, 2009

Democrats, including Chris Dodd and John Kerry, have been calling for bipartisanship following the death of Ted Kennedy, according to CNN.

Why they expect Congressmen to drop all of their principles and support such a destructive and unread bill, not anyone would dare guess. When Karl Marx, one of the greatest historical advocates of communism, died, not anyone expected us to change our capitalist ways. The question remains: How is this any different?

It is fair to consider Marx intelligent and well-meaning, as we can consider Kennedy. Their both being lifelong advocates of sweeping reform of which most of the population opposes on ideological premises stands as another striking similarity between these cases. Both individuals worked on getting their reform passed, for decades even, and all in vain.

So, while we honor the dedication and contributions of Ted Kennedy, we shall continue to disagree with him posthumously, contrary to the wishes of the Democratic Party.

The End of the World As We Know It

March 14, 2009

Universal Healthcare:

Though it has failed everywhere else (Hawaii, Canada, Australia, Britain…), for some reason, it is the solution to our healthcare problems.

But we will not be fooled. Creating a government monopoly that is ran by a bureaucracy and exponentially less responsible than free-market insurance will destroy our current system and, after it fails, leave us with more uninsured and another mess to clean up.

Certainly this isn’t change we can believe in. But congressional democrats are planning to pass such a bill, dubbed the ‘Ted Kennedy Memorial Bill’ or something to the likes of that. Why? Well, nobody is sure, and we need to make them realize that they will do more harm than good.
