National Health Care is a Good Start – Then Turn It Over to the States

Sexy Shaun White Exemplary "20 Something"

I would like to have a club that only allowed people aged 20 – 28 and 48 – 65.  These two generations are almost identical and could really learn from one another.  They share the same ideals and beliefs before consumerism took over. The kids (I’ll call them kids and it’s by no means derogatory) are bringing back 60’s and 70’s music, culture and politics.  Outwardly focused agenda’s versus the Me, Mine focused agenda’s of the 80’s and 90’s.  These two groups could be very powerful together.  The 20 Somethings were 50/50 McCain – Obama until McCain chose Palin.  They’re too smart for that.  They understand a puppet candidate versus someone at least slightly better than that.  The 20 Somethings fled toward Obama but now that he’s actually been elected and 25% of his contract is done they’re like, wow not much has changed (except this week with health care – that may have been the defining move in his Presidency.  If they write up Health Care with future power turned over to the states as I’ve outlined below he could be a hero.  Yes welcome to our political system.

The best answer to a government by the people is to keep it Local and keep it Small.  That’s why the founding fathers wanted the power to be with the towns and cities within the states.  That’s why they wanted more control by the states so the federal government would not be powerful.  It would merely moderate disputes according to the constitution.  Other than than a moderating entity the federal government was not to have power.

Think about it.  How awesome would it be for individual states to be graded and judged according to how it was to live there and what freedoms you had.  States would become cool to live in for more reasons than just taxes.  Rarely are states talked about in terms of the liberties you get by living there.  I actually don’t have a problem with healthcare for everyone.  I’d like to live in a culture where living healthy was a priority and encouraged.  Protecting the environment was encouraged.  But I don’t need a law mandating where money goes. I want to choose things that I feel are important, not my government. It’s my money.  I could agree to pay a certain amount of my income to causes I believed in.  I, on my taxes could check off where I wanted the money to go.  If I wanted health insurance I would check that off and my money could go there.  I would live in a state where I shared the same beliefs as others.  This is not like a cult or monochromatic.  Quite the opposite.  I want to live in a diverse community where people believe in many different things openly and with zeal but people are not hated for it, the culture would be one of respect for individualism and encouraged.

I want California to be the first state to legalize marijuana and not for the usual reasons people think.  I want California to legalize it #1 because it’ an expensive mistake the government made when they decided to prohibit it much like they did in the 20’s and 30’s with alcohol.  It could actually be an incredible viable industry and a product like wine, which California has a reputation for having the best in the world.  It’s natural, organic and provides pleasure.

#2 It sets the message that the power can go back to the states.  If the states feel that something  at a federal level is a huge mistake they can disagree and have different laws.  Marijuana for example.  Right now states are trying to do this with health care but I think this is a mistake.  It would take too long to have 50 states come up with state health plans, get them drawn up, voted on – agreed upon.  It would be a disaster.  At this point we need a national plan.  Going forward however, power regarding health, should then be turned over to the states as they become more prepared to handle it.

Back to the older part of the post…

Not only has nothing happened but we’re in another war – Afghanistan?  A country that has taken down anyone who attempts to get past it’s impenetrable mountain borders. Then you ask all this for what?? Shaun White.

They are disgusted with our foreign policy agenda.  They don’t understand why we are invading other countries and brutalizing their citizens.  Those that are in the military had no choice.  There are no jobs and it’s the only way they  have a chance at making some money and maybe a career. They have been manipulated by the government and media that you have courage and greatness when you are a soldier.  The country loves you no matter what kind of person you are.  You are a glorified Army Ant.  Nothing more nothing less.  Army Ant.

Army Ant, No It's Not Heroic

The 20 Somethings have less ego like those of the 60’s.  They love freedom and individualism.  I just wish they would take up much more strongly the fact that our government killed 3,ooo plus citizens on 911.  They should be storming the white house, holding marches and demanding answers.  These crimes have to stop against the American people all in the name of security.

I’m worried I’m so shocked and outraged that I have to leave this country but to where?  or holy shit you 20 Somethings find the truth and punish.  But there is no  media  money anymore to have real unbiased journalism.  It doesn’t exist.  the only model that can exist is on the spot reporters who gain points with relevancy and immediacy.   They don’t get caught with bogus reports.   I’m not sure this pay model can profit without hiring immigrants at the street level.

Is, 911 a lie?
