Republican roots

Republicans used to stand for freedom and for the rights of small independent entrepreneurs.  If politicians trash Obamacare and fail to come up with a viable alternative that reduces the inflated costs of healthcare, where will that leave owners of small businesses?  Large corporations have an unfair advantage in securing health insurance for their employees, an advantage that weakens small companies and leaves independent entrepreneurs at a loss.  The loss of small businesses means loss of freedom for the American people.  If Americans have to choose between working for a large corporation or for the government as their only places of employment, our freedom will dissipate and our ability to act ethically eroded.  The reason politician fail to change the healthcare industry is because big money doesn’t want it to change, and politicians on both sides of the fence listen to the money.

Insurance aren’t responsive to consumers because they aren’t hired by the consumer.  They’re hired by corporations who dictate to their employees/the consumer what their policy is.  That relationship should be severed.  Insurance companies should be required to sell their policies only to individual consumers.  Serious compromise needs to take place among voting public, so we can determine what medical procedures are mandated to be covered by insurance policies, and what are elective and optional coverage.  Without a reduction of expectations by the American people of should be covered by insurance, medical costs will bankrupt the public and private sectors of our economy.  We will then have neither the freedom Republican demand nor the equality that Democrats seek.

Are Christians endorsing corruption?

Many Christians feel the Republican party supports Christian values because they promote Pro-life issues and traditional family values.  Some Christians have voted Democrat because they don’t like the way Republicans cater to the rich and neglect the poor.  But don’t both parties really cater to the rich?  Why else are corrupt corporations like Goldman Sachs allowed to manipulate the oil prices by dumping huge quantities of oil to create a glut on the market to lower the price so they can buy low and then hoard it to raise the price when they want to sell.  If politicians of both party weren’t on the take, we certainly would have come up with insider trading laws that would have prohibited this practice.  The fact that oil supply is a national security issue should make prohibition of market manipulation a top priority, even if it means taking the price of oil off the playing field of free market enterprise.
