Who should make the choice?
By Dr. M. Sidney Wallace
When I was a child my responsible parents made choices for me. When I was a teenager they allowed me to start making my own choices. When I made a bad choice, I learned from my mistake. I did not expect anyone to absolve me of my responsibilities. This responsibility training allowed me to mature and take on more responsibilities. This has been the history of Americans and that is why they have been a successful people.
When I was a young man and moved out of my parent’s home to live on my own. I bought cars, real estate, life and health insurance, and saved money for my retirement. The government did not give me anything except the freedom to choose.
When I worked all week and wanted take my girlfriend out to dinner that was my choice. If I ordered a steak with a baked potato, there was no government bureaucrat telling me that red meat was unhealthy and that I should have a veggie burger.
I once decided to save some money to buy something I wanted. There were no government bureaucrats asking me for what I was saving money. My personal life was none of the federal government’s business.
Let’s go back to my original question. Who do you feel will make the best choices for you and your family, you or a government bureaucrat? This is what the Democrat health care bill is all about. There is no man made government in this world that can make the best decision for every situation. The Democrat initiative is not about a government created national medical calamity, but about who makes the choices.
The United States grew to be the most prosperous and respected nation in the history of the world. This growth was because individuals had the freedom to choose what was best themselves. You can disregard the rhetoric on TV and radio. The choice is very simple and very clear.
If you wish to make your own choices in life, then the Democrat Socialist proposals is not for you. If you wish to have a government bureaucrat making all of your choices, then welcome to Obama’s world of socialism.
All of the rhetoric boils down to who you think can make the best choice for you and your family.
