The other day, a friend from shul told me that he feels like giving up.
“Reading your blog post about the countless gender choices on Facebook,” said my friend, “made me realize that my grandchildren won’t be shocked at this craziness. To them, it will be normal. And that is sick. It feels like the radical left have won the culture wars and now we’re just fighting over meaningless scraps.”
“We can’t just give up,” I said.
But his despair left a profound impression on me.
Is it true that the radical left have already won? Does the rise of a Marxist community agitator to POTUS mean the end of the American Republic?
And then I sat down and read The Bookworm Returns: Life in Obama’s America, an eBook which should be mandatory reading for every American.
The goal of the postmodern Democrat party is to centralize and harness the power of the state, which is then used as a blunt instrument of intimidation to suppress liberty and bring about an imagined Socialist utopia.
Because Socialism always brings poverty, unemployment, misery and chaos wherever it rears its collective head, Democrats have re-branded Socialism with the feel-good label of Social Justice.
There is no such thing.
In today’s WSJ editorial page, Stephen Blackwood details how ObamaCare made his mother’s excellent coverage illegal, even as she battles cancer.
When I read this story, I was gripped by rage and sadness. Our son, Ariel Chaim ZT’L, battled cancer for eight long years. Our insurance coverage was excellent. Only once did the insurance company balk at paying for a treatment. We hired a lawyer. He wrote one letter. The insurance company reversed their decision.
Ariel passed away. But the expensive medical treatments he received, the fine and caring physicians and nurses, and his will to live, prolonged Ariel’s precious life far longer than was originally predicted.
Try writing a letter to the U.S. government.
ObamaCare is not working and cannot work. That is obvious. What will the Democrats do to contain the damage? Simple. They will declare ObamaCare a success. And then they will propose a single-payer system—AKA Socialism—in order to make ObamaCare even better.
When there are not enough doctors to treat patients the Democrats will temporarily but forever, suspend immigration laws in order to induce Voodoo healers from Haiti to take up the slack.
If you object you are a racist.
When the money runs out for ObamaCare, as it must because it’s a Ponzi scheme, the Democrats will raise taxes again and again and again.
If you object you are a charter member of the despised one-percent — and a racist.
If you die because of ObamaCare, you can take comfort in the knowledge that you are dying in order to smooth out income inequality, and for the greater good of the Democrat party.
And by dying in a timely fashion you get to prove that you are not a racist.
This week Seraphic Secret has been preoccupied with, um, stuff. Hence, no time to post about the latest ObamaCare outrage, our government of the pen and by the phone, and of course, John Kerry’s startling and touching discovery of his Jewish ancestry.
It is Friday. Time to take a vacation from the weight of history.
