Who are the five largest employers in the world?
1. Peoples Liberation Army (PLA), China, 2,300,000
2. Wal-Mart Stores, United States, 1,800,000 employees
3. Indian State Railways, India, 1,400,000
4. National Health Service (NHS), UK, 1,300,000
5. Deutsche Post, Germany, 502,545 employees!
Note number 4 on the list!
I would like to propose that Obamacare has less to do with Healthcare and more to do with what Bill Clinton said “It’s the economy stupid!” The UK has only 61,789,194 people. The U.S. has a whopping 304,059,724 people! This just scream government employment program to me and will provide the illusion of an economic recovery because the percantage of the unemployed will go down.
So, the danger of this is that many of those new government employees are going to be a big part of the voting block. They will be completely dependant on the survival of this program and will vote accordingly. So, once this is law you will never be able to get rid of it since so many will need it for their own survival. Thus a vicious cycle will soon take hold of this country and it will be the noose around the neck of any ideas to shrink or scale back an out of controll tyrannical government. Which is why beyond just the complete tyrannical controll that government will have in our most intimate moments and deciscions this needs to be stop and declared DOA! I will leave you some thoughts that our Founding Fathers had on the subject of government!
“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence. It is force, and like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” ~ George Washington ~
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them. The fate of unborn millions will now depend on God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die.” ~ George Washington ~
“I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.” ~ Thomas Jefferson ~
“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” ~ Thomas Jefferson ~
“When a man assumes a public trust, he should consider himself as public property.” ~ Thomas Jefferson ~
“If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” ~ Thomas Jefferson ~
“Make yourselves sheep and the wolves will eat you.” ~ Benjamin Franklin ~
“A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.” ~ Benjamin Franklin ~
“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!” ~ Benjamin Franklin ~
