Democrats have rammed through a government takeover of American health care. What now? National Review Online's editorial aptly begins with the words, "Nil Desperandum," and that is the right attitude for Americans distressed by this unprecedented inroad on the private sector.
David Horowitz likes to say that "in politics, there are no lost causes, because there are no won causes." But, much will depend on the intrepidity of Republican legislators and candidates -- isn't that a scary thought? -- who are America's last best hope to repeal Obamacare. Is there a Republican leader out there who can lead this fight? Paul Ryan, perhaps?
Ultimately, however, the American People will decide at the ballot box whether to restore Constitutionally limited government, or accept the new order. Will our future be free markets and individual choice, or will it be, "Comrade, it has been noticed by the Ministry of Healthcare Cost Control that you frequently eat ice cream after 9pm. Surely you know, Comrade, that this kind of reckless behavior costs the taxpayers millions of dollars a year in medical expenses, that could be used to feed a hungry child, or pay the college tuition of a disadvantaged youth..." We'll have a pretty good idea on November 3rd.
