Alas, a topic that both liberals and conservatives will surely unite to roll their eyes at the seemingly endless garbage that is amassed in this 1,000 page novel. It is something that I hesitate to even bring up, simply because readers will inevitably be confused at why I would speak about the second amendment in stride with the healthcare system. Nevertheless, I am but the liaison to the American people I love, and the administration that I am ashamed to follow. At any rate, lets look at the President’s greatest attempt to stay true to his bipartisan promise as the leader of our great nation.
The initial amendments that we began to walk through last week set a strong tone for the liberal agenda to radically change our current healthcare system, however the amendments that followed, ensuring Americans won’t be asked about their legal possession of firearms, would baffle anyone who hasn’t dropped the law due to boredom already.
What the provision states:
- No wellness program nor federal or state authority may require any information regarding firearms or ammunition that are (legally) possessed stored, or used on an individual’s property.
- An individuals premium rate may not increase, nor coverage denied, nor discount given, simply because that individual possesses a firearm or ammunition.
Thank goodness! I don’t know about you, but my biggest worry with the implementation of governmental healthcare was that the insurance agencies would find out about my 50 cal. rifle under the bed, not to mention the grenades I keep in my pillow. All kidding aside, what is the deeper problem that lies embedded in this seemingly idiotic section? I propose two (equally frightening) possibilities.
Possibility #1: The Obama administration wanted to ensure Americans that their rights were not truly lost by government taking the reigns on healthcare. All of us redneck, uneducated, tobacco-chewin ‘mericans could still keep our guns without anybody asking any questions. Additionally, the intellectual, ever-generous, peacemaking free-thinkers would also be ensured that none of the ‘savage conservative dogs’ would be rewarded by owning such a detestable contraption. Although admittedly this is the weaker of the possibilities, nothing foolish is impossible for the man currently in office.
Possibility #2: Because of the deceptive tactics used by our president already, I believe that this section was carefully planted for future liberals to use advantageously towards their war against the second amendment. It is no surprise that Barack Hussein is against American pride in the second amendment; most foreigners who wish America would change its ways are. However, this particular section now allows a liberal to ‘amend the amendment’, bypassing the hype that would be roused through debating directly on the second amendment itself. Obama and his mindless minions may now simply remove this minor section that “doesn’t really have anything to do with the law anyways”.
In essence, if you take pride in your right as an American to bear arms, then please be worried as I am. If this section truly has no place in the law, then ask yourself why it exists at all? Although a twisted argument, is it not expected that democrats will eventually remove the section, allowing the governmental authorities that be require you disclose all information about your firearms? If it seems ridiculous that it was ever included in the law, then something ridiculous is sure to follow when it is removed by the very snakes who put it there in the first place.
As always, please leave your thoughts and comments, share with friends and foes, and follow the blog weekly to continue learning about your new system of healthcare.
