ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The news media says America is looking for change. However, does America want the change that the liberal, extreme-left politicians - aka progressive politicians - of the Democratic Party will provide?

They promise easily accessed, affordable national health care (socialist health care). This proves that the Democrats are insane because they profess to succeed, without improvement, with a health program that always fails. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton wants to force us to participate in this program even if we don’t want to, by garnishing our wages. I guess we’ll have to change our national anthem - delete “land of the free” and insert “land of the tyrants.”

Providing health care to our entire nation cannot possibly be “affordable.” Coverage likely will include all U.S. citizens who can’t afford it, and probably illegal aliens, too. Guess who is going to pay for all these people who say they can’t pay: We will. Up go our taxes. Down goes our personal net income. We’ll just have to learn to do without. Isn’t the un-American way just great? Another thing to think about: It will be a federal program. All those wonderful benefits mandated by individual states will not apply. Also, state-mandated cost controls will not apply to a federal program.

The Democrats do not want free enterprise. The only thing Democrats are good at is oppressing American citizens. Americans of this generation seem to be the most gullible people who ever existed. Our history, if you would look into it instead of listening to today’s spin, could teach us a lot about what we should or should not do.
