When it comes right down to it, we will find that the direction the Last Self-Help Administration has taken the United States of America so far has been determined by monstrous ego. Health Care Reform, so-called, regardless of whether or not one subscribes to the Doctrine of Original Sin, is not only new and untried, but as anyone with a lick of sense knows, not foolproof.
While a small federal program might have covered the +/- 30,000,000 Americans not covered previously by health insurance, a new, untried, and hardly foolproof program will now begin its new wheels a-turning that purports to cover ALL Americans. That means, gentle reader, that everyone will be liable to its creakings and groanings and mistakes and botches and misfittings and errors and (fill in blank).
Only a leadership that does not care a whit for all Americans would do this new, untried, and hardly foolproof thing to ALL its citizens ... just because. It is the difference between belief in ideological collectivization on the one hand, and a humility that is clearly lacking in this hubris-filled, power-drunk Adminstration.
And the drunken driver at the wheel of this juggernaut, as we - and he - know, has the right of way.
