September 10, 2009 Dear Friend of Liberty, Last night, President Obama made it clear he intends to push hard for a government-run Health Control system. His plans, if enacted, will result over time in either a complete government takeover of Health Care, or the total destruction of any meaningful private system. Now is the time for us to raise our voices and insist Congress vote "NO" to this government power grab. Make no mistake, the Obama plan will cause the price of insurance to skyrocket even further by increasing payouts and other costs of doing business, putting many more Americans in the position of having to drop their coverage. One plan currently being considered in the Senate would impose a $3,800 fine on families who refuse to get health insurance. Health insurance will no longer be a free choice in our country. President Obama has long advocated a universal, single-payer system, and that is the ultimate goal of enacting this so-called "reform" package. In regards to his deficit-neutral promise, the Congressional Budget Office has already stated (GO HERE: http://cboblog.cbo.gov/?p=332) that HR 3200 will add over $200 billion to the deficit over the next ten years, and Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are already trillions of dollars in the red. Are we really expected to believe that yet another government program on top of all these will save money? And, hidden throughout the over 1000 pages that make up this bill are even more "goodies" for the allies of Big Government, such as a massive payoff to Big Labor, who will reap millions of new forced union dues and wield unprecedented power over government and "private" health care as reported (GO HERE: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203440104574400571702189240.html) in The Wall Street Journal. President Obama has repeatedly stated that we cannot deal with the rising cost of health care by maintaining the status quo. I wholeheartedly agree. We must acknowledge that the root cause of the health care crisis in this country is government interference (GO HERE: http://www.campaignforliberty.com/blog.php?view=24061). Of course, many in the insurance industry have taken full advantage of their lobbying power and monopolies, but they have been able to do this because of the government. It is government that prohibits individuals from being able to shop across state lines for insurance. It is government that imposes thousands of mandates on insurance providers. It is government that created HMOs in the 1970s. It is government that has skewed (GO HERE: http://www.campaignforliberty.com/blog.php?view=23690) the market to prop up third party payers. Simply put, the problems with health care in America are TOO MUCH government interference already. The solution is to lessen government control - NOT give them more power! The Council for Affordable Health Insurance has identified a total of 2,133 mandated benefits and providers currently required by state legislatures, mandates they estimate increase the cost of basic coverage from around 20% to as high as possibly 50%. Read their report here: http://www.cahi.org/cahi_contents/resources/pdf/HealthInsuranceMandates2009.pdf If the president thinks we can pay for his plan through saving billions of dollars by eliminating waste and abuse in Medicare and Medicaid, then why don't we clean out those systems now and return that money through tax cuts to the American taxpayer, providing them extra funds to buy insurance if they want it? Both major parties believe the answer to our health care crisis is through government intervention. They only differ in the degree of that intervention. It's time to choose freedom. Americans should be free to shop across state lines for health insurance, to easily go outside the country for cheaper medications, and to buy health insurance without being taxed on it. Congress should give Americans control over their health care by giving them control over their health care dollar via tax credits and deductions similar to those outlined in Congressman Ron Paul's Comprehensive Health Care Reform Act (HR 1495). And Congress should protect privacy rights by allowing patients and physicians to opt-out of any government-mandated or funded system of electronic health care records, and by repealing the federal law creating an "unique patient identifier" by adopting the policies contained in Congressman Ron Paul's Protect Patients and Physicians Privacy Act (HR 2630). Tell Congress today that you oppose cementing the status quo of government care. Urge your representative and senators to oppose HR 3200 and all other bills that would take control over your health care out of your hands.

Real reform starts with freedom, and real hope for America means upholding its founding principle of self-determination. In Liberty, John Tate President

YOU ALL MUST READ THIS ARTICLE AND ALL THE LINKS WITHIN IT. http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index1272.htm THIS ONE TELLS YOU HOW WE GOT TO WHERE WE ARE NOW AND WHO DID IT, AND IS CONTINUING TO DO IT TO US. ALL YOU CAN DO NOW IS TO FIGHT BACK WITH EVERYTHING YOU HAVE TO POSTPONE YOUR INEVITABLE DEATH AT THEIR HANDS. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL.... http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index1272.htm The Tytler Cycle is a theory of democracies formulated by the Scottish historian Alexander Tytler that states: “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.” And at 233-years-old since its declaration of independence from the British Empire, the United States falls perfectly into the Tytler Cycle parameters predicting it being on the very cusp of becoming a dictatorship that will enslave its peoples and force upon them a totalitarian fascist police state modeled on that of the former German Nazi Empire headed by the charismatic speaker, Adolph Hitler.

U.S. Dollar Will Weaken, Currency Crash Possible, Roubini Says By Sonia Sirletti and Jeffrey Donovan Sept. 4 (Bloomberg) -- The dollar will weaken and the U.S. risks seeing a crash of the currency unless it does more to control the deficit and reduce debt, said New York University Professor Nouriel Roubini, who predicted the financial crisis. “If markets were to believe, and I’m not saying it’s likely, that inflation is going to be the route that the U.S. is going to take to resolve this problem, then you could have a crash of the value of the dollar,” Roubini said in an interview today in Cernobbio, Italy. “The value of the dollar over time has to fall on a trade-weighted basis, but not necessarily relative to euro and yen.” Roubini said he didn’t see a risk of a dollar crash in the “‘short term.” The value of the U.S. currency relative to currencies such as the yen or the euro “cannot change too much compared to current levels because if the dollar were to weaken a lot and the euro strengthen a lot, that’s going to warp any chance for the European economy to recover, same argument as to the yen,” he said. “Most of the adjustment of the dollar in the future has to occur relative to China, relative to emerging Asia and relative to some of the other commodity exporters in the world, whether these are advanced economies or emerging markets,” he said. Foreign creditors need assurances that the U.S. will address its deficit, Roubini said. “Unless in the medium term these issues of fiscal sustainability are addressed, and unless we mop up that excess liquidity from the financial system, eventually the financial markets and the foreign creditors of the United States might get more concerned about the sustainability of the U.S. fiscal deficit and about the U.S. being tempted to use the inflation tax as a way of resolving its private and public debt problems,” he said.
