In the early months of the health-care debate during the Clinton administration, we were as adamantly opposed to Hillary Care as we are to Obama Care. Were we racist then? If my memory serves me right, there were no claims of racism -- probably because, as far as I can tell, the Clintons are white.
So what has changed? In both cases, we oppose the same draconian power grab by the administration in power. The real racists are the American left. It's the left that constantly tell the minority community that they cannot make it on their own. Why not? In my humble opinion, the liberals cannot defend their policies on merit. With old media's help, they were able to cow their opponents simply by labeling them/us racists.
I, for one, am sick of it. Does anybody think government takeover of the American health-care system will improve it? Did you ever deal with the IRS, the Social Security Administration, the DMV or any other government-run bureaucracy? It is a maddening experience. At least their inefficiencies won't kill you; relinquishing our health-care system to a bunch of bureaucrats who answer to whims of politicians probably will.
