"Medicare for All" Socialism Calling

Sunday, caught in her own web of deception, senator and presidential candidate Kamala Harris said she supports Bernie Sander's socialism, including his "Medicare for All."

Bernie's "Medicare for All" plan would eliminate all private insurers. When asked if she really wants all private insurance gone---she did what all progressives do when caught in their own web of deception---She lied.

Remember, a lie is actually not a lie to a progressive if the lie makes progress toward their noble goals.

Historian Arnold Toynbee once said: "An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide."

All 22 Democrats running for president support some degree of suicide called socialism.

Be informed.

Charlie Daniels, the greatest fiddler of all time, is also a deep thinker. And a conservative.

In his column this weekend he said, "Never forget, socialism is not about compassion; it's about control." More from Charlie in a moment.

Presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris claimed Sunday on CNN that her support for "Medicare for All" does not mean she would eliminate the entire private health insurance industry, even though she has endorsed Bernie Sanders' "Medicare for All" legislation, which would eliminate private insurance except for cosmetic and minor surgeries.

Harris had assured whoever was listening to her back in January that
"You don't have to go through the process of going through an insurance company, having them give you approval, going through paperwork, all of the delay they may require...Let's eliminate all that. Let's move on."

Less than 24 hours after Harris' concerning remarks, her spokesman said she does not believe in eliminating the private health insurance industry.

When Jake Tapper with CNN asked her about the issue, she said no, no, no, "I just want to eliminate the "bureaucracy" and "waste" in the healthcare system.

She is either terribly uninformed or purposefully lying to the public in order to mislead them. It's the latter.

Even far Left Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), the creator of one of the most popular among progressives, Medicare for All bills, admits that up to a million private health insurance workers could "get displaced" under a Medicare for All system.

That means "lose their jobs because the private industry has been eliminated."

All the want-to-be president Democrat candidates support some form of socialism---most a strong socialistic agenda.

When you think of "Charlie Daniels" you think deep south, country music and the best fiddler you've ever heard.

He's all that. He's also a conservative Christian.

And he's a deep thinker who thinks a lot about what's going on in our culture.

In his latest column, he puts the light on socialism.

I strongly recommend you read his entire column linked above.

In part, he talks about how fatal socialism can be to a dynamic culture, remembering how Obama told America that the manufacturing jobs that had exited America would never come back. Yet he has been proven wrong.

Daniels says:
"I have a hard time believing that an urbane, well-educated president who is privy to international economics and intelligence wouldn't know what it would take to bring those jobs back to America and was naive enough to believe what he said , especially since his successor has made great strides in that direction in two short years."

Yes, Charlie, I agree---I too think he knew better.

So do all these presidential candidates. But they still want socialism.

Like Daniels said: "It's not about compassion; It's about control."

If a socialist---even one in public denial---should become the next president of the United States, and have a complicit Congress, the transition to socialism would not come overnight---as we sleep. It would come incrementally.

Daniels notes that millions are already living on government entitlements. What if their check suddenly stopped coming for some arcane or meaningless statute, what would they do to start the flow of money again?

Almost anything.

Let's take healthcare for an example.

In 2017, US Healthcare grew 3.9%, reaching $3.5 trillion or $10,739 per person. Healthcare is 17.9% of our entire Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

"What if the only way to see a doctor or have needed check treatment was through a government bureaucrat", Daniels says, " who looked at you like a side of beef, having no medical training and no compassion and was only capable of dispensing "take a number, take a seat-type attention to your medical problems?"

They laughed at Sarah Palin too, when she suggested Obamacare would lead to "death panels" that would decide who got healthcare and when.

As Obamacare rolled out, it became clear that she was on the mark.

So is Charlie Daniels.

He says:
"What happens when you or your loved ones are at the mercy of a cold machine of government entity with an 'if you don't like it, you can lump it' attitude? So you have no choice but to line up and hope for the best."

Daniels says,
"You cannot go down the road to socialism without giving greater power to government, actually total power, because the whole idea of socialism is giving everything to the government and letting them dole it out as they see fit---putting massive power into the hands of unscrupulous people who have proven they are not above corruption or playing favorites."

Daniels also raises the question: What if a totally in control government that can do whatever it wants to do, would decide to be a part of a one world government, with its headquarters in, say Brussels?

Some would say that can never happen in America. Every country that has ended up in the hands of a dictator got there through the promise of free things.

Washington DC is full of globalists, some elected, some have bought their way in. They don't care about America, except as an economic engine that can be turned toward funding a one world government, with a very few masters running the village.

Global government is not a theory, it's a passion for the progressive.

Daniels says:
"If you look at it from the point of view of someone who didn't much like this nation the way it is and thought the only way to make it better is an all powerful monolithic government, and knows that the fewer jobs there are, the more government dependence there is. It is possible Obama just didn't just didn't want those jobs to come back."

Hillary was the "shoe-in" candidate anointed to carry the torch in the Oval Office for 8 years.

Another rising star will be chosen to succeed, where she failed. The new star will come with their hands full of shiny gifts and promises of free healthcare, free college, guaranteed wages, a cradle to grave carefree Utopian life with nothing to worry about but breathing.

The long arc of history strikes a certain note or rhythm of human events.

More than 20 major civilizations have all, ultimately committed suicide. All followed this pattern.

Bondage, Revolution. Freedom. Prosperity. Apathy. Dependence. Revolution. Bondage.

America has prospered above any nation in history. And we became apathetic. And in our apathy we became dependent. We have now raised a generation of which in every poll says they are favorable toward socialism.

In spite of the all-out attacks on Trump, for the past 2 years, he has tried to restore the broken pieces. Our nation is showing great signs of recovery.

The most important, consequential election since Abraham Lincoln is looming on the horizon.


It's not too soon to be thinking about it, praying about it and asking ourselves what am I going to do about it?

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful.
