Let me get this straight. It is ok for BILLIONS of out tax dollars to go to WAR that has killed many American men and women on the basis that WMD's
would be found which were not but it is not ok to spend out tax dollars on HEALTH CARE that will look out for millions of Americans that do not have
it or can not afford it?
No, you do not have it straight.
I carried insurance in that great insurance ponzi scheme scam for years. Never could afford to use it, but I carried it all the same.
I opted out of that collective. I have no insurance now, nor do I want any. I'll be DAMNED if I'll allow the government to force me to buy ANY good
or service, especially one that I don't want, don't need, and will never be able to afford to use. It's money to line insurance executives'
pockets, pure and simple, and will help NO ONE with "health care". It was never about "health care", it was all about health INSURANCE, a very
I've always taken care of my own medical problems, and will continue to do so. Should the event ever arise that I CAN'T do so, I will die. Pure and
simple. No one lives forever, not even me. Furthermore, my demise will solve the conflict between me and the governmental "enforcers" for the
mafia-like insurance scam.
Until that time comes, I will NOT be buying into the government enforced Insurance Company scam. Neither will I pay any sort of penalty for the crime
of merely drawing breath.
May God have mercy on ANY kevlar wearing, jack booted IRS thug that comes to enforce this travesty at my house, because I assure you I will NOT have
any. Will I die? possibly, maybe even probably, but I'll not be going to Valhalla alone. You can take that to the bank.
The fact is, when a man is forced into a corner, when he has nothing left to lose, when he can be sure there will never be a fair trial, at that point
an unfair gunfight becomes not just an option, but an inevitability.
It's best for all concerned if they just leave me the hell alone, and I'll leave THEM the hell alone. I've already opted out of the collective, and
forcing me back into it is nothing short of slavery, which is alleged to have been covered by the 13th amendment.
I drew my line in the sand on this issue over a year ago right here at ATS, and I ain't budging.
Edit to add: for those insisting that this is no different than government-mandated CAR insurance, you couldn't be more wrong. With CAR insurance, I
can elect not to own a car, and not worry about paying it. In fact, I have done this. In the matter of government mandated HEALTH insurance, my only
option is to elect not to live. This, in effect, deprives me of the right to LIFE (as in "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" - where was
it that I read those words again?), not just the PRIVELEDGE of driving.
NO difference? I'd call that a BIG damn difference!
