Civil War have the people of the United States been so divided. The Health Care Reform law that has been
passed has rocked this nation down to its core. America is on the verge
of another civil war. Each side has it's own view of who is right and
who is wrong. But do people even understand the others view or argument?
I am just as guilty of making rants as the next without giving a valid
explanation of why I stand where I do. But do we as Americans really
want to see our nation collapse? A nation divided cannot stand. For the
sake of our children we need to handle this as one nation to truly keep
America the Land of The Free
The Left View
America Needs Healthcare
From what I
have heard from the people that do support this law it is for the simple
reason that insurance companies
have made the price of healthcare so high that it unattainable for the
majority of America. As I was told today by someone on the left "I can't
afford to be against this bill because I stand to lose everything
without it." When I questioned him on what exactly he was saying, he
went on to explain that he is a collage graduate who up until a year ago
had a great job with health insurance
but got laid off due to company cutbacks right after his wife became
pregnant. He has since taken a job making $8.00 an hour that has
insurance (but was denied coverage due to pre-existing condition) and to
keep money coming in to provide for his family while trying to pay all
the medical bills from the birth
of his son. I think everyone in America can agree that this is a problem
that needs to be fixed.
The Right View
Our Freedom is at risk!
America is proud to be free. The right side feels that what the health
care law has done is put the very foundation this nation was built upon
at risk. Countless veterans have made sacrifices in the welfare of their
own life or gave their own life so we the citizens of the United States
could remain free. The right side cannot accept this health care law
because it takes our choice away which takes away our freedom. We are
afraid that if the government is allowed to continue with this than
their is virtually nothing stopping them from taking more of our
choices. I think everyone in America will agree that this is a serious
problem and we need to stop it before it is to late
Change We Can Believe
Change can only be made
with America United
The only way
for us to unite and stand together is for both sides to compromise. We
are past blame now. Americans need to accept the responsibility to come
together to fix our nation. Our nation is corrupt and the people that
govern us have stopped listening. But does that mean that we as American
have lost our values and what America stands for? I do not have the
answers but together I am sure we can find them. Maybe I am being over
the top right now, but do we really want to see America collapse? This
is as close as it gets and I don't want to get any closer. The days
following 9/11, patriotism ran high in our nation. We stood united as a
nation and were hell bent on stopping the threat against our freedom.
Well our freedom is threatened again, and need to come together again to
protect it . I just pray that we all realize that once we do stand up
for our freedom that we have a obligation to fix the things that we
agreed to compromise on or we will all end up back here again.
