Government run health care......
I try not to write too much about politics but this needed to be said.... If you enjoy your freedoms, in this country, you need to see just what will happen if Obama's universal health care plan passes in Congress.... I got this from a friend of mine, Lisa Pippin, and thought it needed to be passed on.
Here are some highlights of the healthcare bill; the more you read, the better it gets. There is a link at the end to the actual bill for those who want to read all 1,000 pages.
Liberty's permeance in American society often makes its manifestations elusive or invisible to those born into it. Even if liberty is acknowledged, it is often taken for granted and its permanence assumed. -Liberty and Tyranny
The following isn't freedom, just another rapid expansion of government.
