As I see our society fastly crumbling into a society based on the mob rule mentality, I am quite puzzled by the arguements I see put forth on ATS
concerning Medicare as an entitlement program that is destroying our economy and is the woes of our financial armageddon in the US..
Now you see, as I understand the word "entitlement" is that it is a program or something that someone payed into, thus as this "entitlement" is
needed, that those people who payed into it and are eligable receive what they payed into. Yet, I see the majority of the folks on ATS referring to
Medicare as if the people who receive it are getting it for free. Let me say, I understand how many of you think of it this way, because that is how
the talking heads of the MSM portray it to us.
Grrrrrrr, damn these people who are receiving "Entitlements" that's the reason our country is in an economic and financial mess!!!! Really?
So using this logic, is your car insurance not also an entitlement program? How about your life insurance policy? You payed into it right? Do you or
do you not think you deserve the benefits of what you payed into if you die or you have a car accident?
Question? WHO DO YOU KNOW THAT IS ON MEDICARE that is getting it FOR FREE? Most people (elderly) that I know have payed into it and still are! My
parents also pay over $400 a month, just so they can go to the doctors of their choosings and get help with their monthly medicinal chest of drugs to
keep them alive. (Yes, they are in their late 70's and need blood pressure pills, diabetes.....etc etc)
How many of you on the right have bashed the Affordable Health Care Act for the fact that the elderly are going to get screwed, but yet you bash
Medicare because it is an ENTITLEMENT PROGRAM???
Ok, I understand, our country is broke, I get it! But, why the cowardice in your political tactics to attack the victims instead of going after the
criminals?? I don't care if you are "blue" or "red"! I am color blind!
What happened to our humanity when we have fallen so bad and been beaten into the ground that we attack those who can't defend themselves but yet
cower behind our doors when it comes to setting the record straight and holding the criminals accountable for their crimes?
Can't you guys see the writing on the wall? Sure, let's deny the elderly their healthcare so that they die, do you really think the government is
going to be satisfied if Medicare is dissolved? What's next?
We are feeding a monster that's hunger for power and wealth will never stop until they have sucked ALL OF US dry!
Stop believing what you are told by the MSM and take a look around you! When you go to a bar to have a drink and sit beside someone and have a
pleasureable conversation, do you ask them if they are red/blue? Would it matter if you found that you liked them?
Sorry America! I am sick and tired of those of you who are willing to sacrifice others for your own benefits! This country is broken and unless we act
with some compassion for the victims, we all will soon find ourselves next in line!
The Constitution states that we all have the rights of "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness", before you want to take away the rights of
someone else, you damn sure better be just as prepared for someone to take away yours!
