Socialized Medicine

I was at the county fair yesterday and I was talking to the local Democrat stand. I was talking to the lady running the stand and she was trying to get me to sign up for a petition for the new health care plan. And this lady walking by stops and scuffs at this and starts to complain about it. Me being the political person I am I didn't walk away. I argued. Her main points were that this new plan will cost more, it will ruin the healthcare system here, and that it will kill the elderly.

I will agree that the new plan will cost more, but it is a fact that Europe has cheeper healthcare per person than our "wonderful and cheep" system. The reason they why this is capable is because government healthcare doesn't look for loopholes because everyone is completely covered and the government does not try to be profitable. It is sickening how our health is now controlled by profit. If your health isn't profitable you are removed. Socialized healthcare is our responsibility. I want to believe we are equally civilized as Europe, Canada, and other countries with socialized healthcare. But the barbaric rich in this country keep power and keep socialized healthcare out of the country. This is why Obama and his new plan anger me. He started his campaign with a promise of socialized healthcare, but the political elite in the Democrat party forced him to become a centrist on all of his views. The barbaric money lovers can't realize that to help everyone will delay the end and will help the country and economy prosper.

It will ruin the healthcare system, but it will only ruin the insurance companies. The hospitals will defiantly go through a rough restructuring, but they will come out on the other side with happier doctors and happier and healthier patients. Doctors don't go out of business. They have less stress when dealing with a government with socialized healthcare than with HMO and their loopholes. We must realize this. We have one of the strongest and advanced government's in this world and still we have an extremely primitive system in dealing with an issue more important than any war, any road project, any tax, but we still sit back and say its good enough. It's not my friends, it's not.

And the final point that socialized healthcare kills the elderly is wrong. The average life span in countries with socialized healthcare is higher. The elderly receive healthcare and wont have the troubles of healthcare costs that come with old age. I know these costs second hand. With my grandparents living with my family I see the costs that come with old age. With socialized medicine comes an extra respect and help to the wisest of this country. We have social security and that was attacked earlier and we protected it. The lady I was debating most likely sees old age as a time for cosmetic surgery and excess. When this is not covered she will defend the regular system because she can afford it and a selfish mentally will grow with her age.

Our economic situation

These economic issues that have been hurting millions of people world wide have not just started recently. What has happened is that the situation has grown and the media has taken note of the recent downturn. But for hundreds of years we have been struggling against the rich and powerful in this world. They have got us stuck ball and chain. They live in a world of gluttony. They use the common citizen like we are part of some sort of blood sport. We die working, doing jobs we don't fully enjoy. We die mining minerals that are not necessities. We do jobs that only support further pain. We must stop this hurtful addiction.

We must change this. Change this now. I'm not talking of a small political shift to the left. I am talking about big changes. Powerful changes. Changes that will shake this world. Change the political system and the economic system drastically. World wide change not just small country changes. We must get rid of the political system of states. Break the boarders. They only end up hurting people. Large governments destroy and distort what is right and what is wrong. We must have small groups function by them selves and sustain by themselves. Big governments are set up to help out only who is in power and to use the common citizen. Governments are leaches on the common man. We must remove these leaches before they suck us dry.

If a true communist follows the words of Marx and not the practice of Stalin, Mao, and Lenin, they will know that communism is not a growth of government. It is a dissolving of government. You have been taught that the USSR was the correct form and it didn't work. But you should not always believe the person who wrote the history book. I have taken the side of Marx because I read Marx before I was brainwashed by the text books and the history shows and by the brainwashed citizens around me.

First Post (Totalitarianism, Entertainment, and Religion)

I do like ranting about many different political topics and i will do it and let you listen. A quick background about me. I am a self pronounced communist. I'm not a stalinist, maoist or leninist. I am a trotskyist-marxist I believe that all communist countries have been misguided and no true communist country has been allowed to flourish. I know saying that I'm a communist most of you will either move on to a different blog or just attack me and say communism has failed and will never work. I understand this issue and I have formulated why it has failed and thats why I am not a stalinist or maoist. This first blog post shall be a copy of some writing I did a few years ago that I found in a notebook I shall edit it and try my best to make it make sense, but not promises.

Totalitarianism, Entertainment, and Religion

One may think that these three don't have any relation and that a paper about them would seem random. But in fact religion is a form of totalitarianism. Entertainment and religion are both a necessity to most citizens in a capitalist state. Totalitarianism and religion are both tough issues when the communist revolution arrives. Religion has become such a big necessity to an overwhelming majority. And totalitarianism has become the easiest way to manage a communist state unfortunately at the expense of the citizen.

The totalitarian government is most close to capitalism because of the presence of exploited citizens for the gain to governmental officials. Unfortunately totalitarianism is most used in a communist state, the state that wants to get away from capitalism and exploiting the workers. I believe communism in a single country can work without a totalitarian government. It has not been shown. The use of democracy gives the citizens the ability not to suppress others. Democracy in the capitalist world has become a way the elites suppress the lower classes. It has become a way to hide totalitarianism just like Stalin hid fascism under the vail of communism. This happens no worse than in the legislative branch of the United States where incumbency rates almost make a position in the branch a life term. And the presidency slowly becomes more elite with the two party elections. The who party system that we have been forced into allows for the leaders of this nation to listen less to their constituents. Ideas have become stagnant, all hope is falsified just to get twenty more votes.

Entertainment is a tough issue because of its rapid change and advancement from the times of Marx, and Trotsky. The invention of video games and computers and the internet are all capitalist items that are used to keep the worker in debt and keep those chains on them. In a communist state these are easy items to raise citizen moral. Without them one of the most powerful group of citizens will arise and revolt just like we will. Unfortunately none of our great communist have talked about this. This lead to a bland Russian lifestyle during the USSR. We must not for one second give up on our citizens' needs to be entertained. For if we limit this we will have discontented citizens that will not try to better themselves and the country.

The most difficult issue a new communist government must face is the extreme powerhouse of religion. Religion and churches are one of the most capitalist institutions and ideas in the world. It is one's free will to worship a higher being and yes it is also one's free will to support an institution, idea or cause. But when a church puts monetary donations ahead of teaching a religion or hints that a donation might put them at a higher standing after death, then it becomes a capitalist institution. The higher ups in a church are not there just for religious gains. All religious leaders have a political and monetary want from doing the job. When they get more money from their supporters they can create a new church with better facilities. When they convert more people to a political idea that supports government's backing of religion they will get more support from the government. This is another reason why most if not all religious groups are a miniscule capitalist system.

This is all I wrote, but I am thinking of more to write. and I shall go more in depth in future posts. Thank you and your comments are wanted no matter how harsh.
