As us techies say in the field of computers, the protocols underlying the internet were designed to detect censorship and to route around it.
Free thinking people have a similar constitution. We detect problematic public policy imposed by the greedy, power mad collectivists and we route around it.
Though Zero and his Odramabots (aka Democrats, aka ‘progressives’, aka communists, aka all-around jackasses — hey, don’t look at me, they picked their own mascot) have succeeded in forcing socialized medicine down our throats (policy-wise, at least for the time being), they will not corral us into their bureaucratic nightmare without a fight.
Yeah, the VA is such a success story for socialized medicine. Too bad dozens of dead veterans is harshing that mellow, now isn’t it.
I will admit that the passage of the (un)Affordable Care Act is having one (but only one) positive outcome. And that is the destruction of the status quo and the rise of something better. Even the notoriously left-wing Washington Post has noticed. Note the clueless critiques from many of the commenters. Sean Parnell of The Self-Pay Patient blog has some good debunking of the promoters of the bureaucracy here.
I told at least a few government supremacists on Facebook and elsewhere that we would destroy this intolerable act by any means necessary. Defund, Dismantle, Destroy, Defy, and hopefully, eventually Repeal. Right now, we are in the Destroy phase. More power to these medical cost sharing programs, and any others that I have missed. The unintended consequence of the rise of these options, it is hoped, is that it will financially bankrupt the morally bankrupt system of the ACA.
One day when I eventually leave my current job, I will likely sign up and tell my new employer that if he likes his benefit package, he can keep it.
I’ll keep my own money, at least for the most part, and pay for the coverage I want. I won’t being paying hiked up premiums (I am unmarried, with no kids, and have a higher than average income, so I ain’t gettin’ any subsidies), contributing to your subsidies, or paying any penalties.
So pay for your own abortions, sex-changes, and birth control, you little twit.
Stay Dangerous, My Friends.
