Barack Hussein Obama promised to “fundamentally transform America.”
Imagine turning to your future wife or husband, right before the wedding ceremony, and saying: “After we’re married, I’m going to fundamentally transform you.”
“But why, honey?”
“Because I love you.”
Common sense dictates that if you love someone, you do not endeavor to transform that person into someone else.
Most sane people agree that such a wedding should be called off.
But it wasn’t.
Obama became POTUS.
ObamaCare is the first step in transforming America into a failed EU state by nationalizing this nation’s health care system. It’s the opening salvo in destroying private insurance, annihilating the free market in health care, and replacing it with a top-down, single-payer system, a vast government machinery.
As Sarah Palin correctly predicted, we will have death panels.
The IRS is already the iron-fist enforcer of the Democrat party. After ObamaCare is implemented, you can be sure the thugs who run the IRS will further their political jihad against the political opposition.
The Democrats know that ObamaCare is going to be a disaster. They know that the true costs of ObamaCare are going to be horrendous. Hence, they are in overdrive, hiding the true costs of the coming debacle they alone created and made into law.
Ed Rogers in the Washington Post explains what’s going on.
I don’t know if Members of Congress will be hearing about it in town hall gatherings and other meetings back home over the Fourth of July recess, but the rolling thunder of the approaching ObamaCare train can be heard in the distance. Smart Democrats are beginning to get frantic about the need to suppress the confusion and hide the cost of ObamaCare between now and the 2014 midterm elections. We are just three months away from the October 1st enrollment start date and so far, nothing about the ObamaCare implementation process should be politically encouraging for Democrats. In fact, the more people learn about ObamaCare, the more frightened they become.
Right now, small businesses across America are making the final determinations on how to reduce the working hours of their employees so fewer employees qualify for the mandated, employer-provided health insurance. Employers are also deciding whether it makes more economic sense to pay a fine to the government or pay for healthcare benefits for their employees. What this means is that hundreds of thousands – and perhaps even millions – of Americans will learn that they are being dismissed from their employer’s healthcare coverage.
The healthcare pink slips will start raining down in late summer and early fall. This will push people into the healthcare exchanges, where, in some cases, people will be writing health insurance checks for the first time. And in many cases, people will be facing increased health insurance costs, particularly if they are young and healthy. The negative effects on personal income and the overall economy will be undeniable. Sometime next year, before the elections, the penalties associated with not having or providing health insurance will begin to pour in. Will the fines come in the mail? Will you be able to appeal? What happens if someone doesn’t pay? No one knows. Or, no one who knows is talking. The consequences of ObamaCare are being hidden.
And of course, the Los Angeles Unified School District, a dysfunctional monster of a bureaucracy, controlled by the radical Left, is going to indoctrinate children into ObamaCare in order to get them them to sell it to their parents.
Millions of people are having second or third thoughts as they get new health insurance bills with steeply hiked rates, as employers cut work hours to save on insurance coverage or as companies drop the coverage plans and leave workers to go on the government’s version.
In desperation, the Obama administration is seeking any way it can to promote ObamaCare to the uninformed. California’s health insurance clearinghouse got $37 million in taxpayer funds just to push the plan in the Golden state.
It gave almost $1 million to Los Angeles’ school district to — get this — pay public school teachers additional taxpayer money to take up class time teaching their pupils the wonders of ObamaCare. So they will go home and sell parents, relatives and neighbors on signing up to use more taxpayer funds. The circle of life in Chicago politics.
District spokesmen said if it works as envisioned, they will indoctrinate students in other government-sanctioned programs to sell their families on. Read all the details here.

Those who have studied totalitarian states—Communist, Nazi, Socialist—well understand that these regimes cruelly harvest their young in order to indoctrinate them into correct political thinking and action. One of the most repulsive hallmarks of post-modern liberalism is their shameless use and abuse of children for political activism. It is most certainly a hallmark of the Obama regime. Which should surprise no one as that’s how community agitators operate.
ObamaCare is just a few months away, and so is the fundamental transformation of this country.
Seraphic Secret has no uplifting thoughts on this matter.
ObamaCare will be bad.
The only question is: how bad will it get?
