“Socialized Medicine is the Keystone to the Arch of the Socialist State.”


Vladimir Lenin:
“Socialized Medicine is the Keystone to the Arch of the Socialist State.”



“Would socialized medicine lead to socialization of other phases of life? Lenin thought so. He declared socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the socialist state.”



1945 AMA Pamphlet Warning


The Communist Workers Party published an article recently in defense of state-run medicine like the proposal that democrats are wanting to ram through in the next 10 days.

From the Socialists Workers Party



When the administration of John F. Kennedy discussed a plan for government health care that would cover people of Social Security age, the American Medical Association (AMA) fought back, along with the insurance and pharmaceutical industries, with a well-funded campaign–complete with a commercial featuring actor Ronald Reagan, who was determined to talk to America about an “imminent threat”:



Now, back in 1927, an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism, the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program…


One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project…Now, the American people, if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose, would unhesitatingly vote against it.


…Of course, the danger of creeping socialism is a much less compelling argument today among ordinary people than it was during the Cold War. If anything, socialism is becoming a preferred alternative to the mess that capitalism has made of working-class living standards…


…According to the Physicians for a National Health Program’s (PNHP) Karen Palmer, the AMA assessed its members an extra $25 each to resist national health insurance, and in 1945, it spent $1.5 million on lobbying efforts, which at the time was the most expensive lobbying effort in American history. An AMA pamphlet warned, “Would socialized medicine lead to socialization of other phases of life? Lenin thought so. He declared socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the socialist state.”


We are only days away from the final vote on ObamaCare. If the House votes yes on the Senate bill that is now before it, THE GAME IS OVER. Since the Senate already passed it, once the House passes it on March 18, Obama’s signature on it (which will be immediate) MAKES IT LAW.


We are about to become a Socialist country. For if this passes, it will be virtually unrepealable. Health entitlement programs, once enacted, have proven to be permanent.


Think about it. Ten days from now: Permanent taxpayer funding of abortion. Permanent death panels (yes, those are in the bill), with no appeal of their decisions. Permanent forcing of pro-life doctors to refer for abortions, under penalty of loss of their license to practice. Within five years, no more freedom to buy private policies of your choice (only policies approved by the federal government). Small insurance companies, such as the one that took such incredibly good care of my husband during his illness, will very quickly be permanently out of business.


The Democrats KNOW that nationalizing health care is the single most effective step in making the USA a socialist country. Lenin said it first:


WE MUST DO WHATEVER IT TAKES IN THE NEXT TEN DAYS TO STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING!

    Once the government controls healthcare, it controls every aspect of your life, and can get you to do anything it wants. If you disagree, they kill you off by denying care.

    Not sure where the blind faith that government can solve problems comes from? Government is the problem. We need to return to the US Constitution and have limited government of enumerated rights as the Founding Fathers intended.

    Yet, it is proven those who can afford to will go outside their own country for medical treatment. The poorer the country the poorer their health care system.

    Government bureaucracy is so inefficient it is hard for me to see how turning our health issues over to a third party (government bureaucrat) will in anyway help Americans. I believe it is a way for the government administration to profit off an industry that has been successful despite the major drawbacks of the other bureaucratic nightmare of Medicare and Medicaid abuse. Now it will become system-wide a taxpayer burden beyond what is fair or constitutional. It is certainly unconstitutional to force a citizen to purchase health insurance if he chooses not to. It will definitely fall under the umbrella of socialism with everything else to follow including housing, and food. That is socialism. And it has failed everywhere else on the planet so why do it here in America?

    NO!>>>

    We need to pray that this Congress can stop this legislation. I don't think revising it would do any good either. There are too many entitlements that were swept in under the radar to get many of the Senators to vote for it. These democrats are not JFK democrats, they are a grass roots operation with socialism as their goal. Glenn gave the example of the farm owner and the cows today. It's about power, control and money. And they think they are superior human beings to the rest of us. They want to rid the middle class, so there are only the very wealthy and the very dependant -- it will force everyone else to be slaves to the rich and powerful. This really isn't anything new, various people have loved this concept and many have tried to implement it, and many have it going on now, like . . . China. This country was set up with a completely different system in mind. One that would prevent this type of government. We sat back, weren't paying attention and allowed this to happen. Now that we see the whole top down, bottom up, inside (or middle class) out -- inside gone ideology we banded together in record numbers and peaceful assembly -- dubbed it the tea party and are trying to take back the reins of our country.

No Ms. Piven we're not just a bunch of "old, white, people" -- obviously you aren't as smart as you think you are. No Bill Mahr, we're not morons, and some day you will meet your maker (the one you don't believe in) and I think you'll have a change of heart -- it might be too late at that point. If conservatives like Sarah Palin speak the left does everything in their power to belittle her, oh they call her all sorts of things which remind me of name calling in the third grade.

    We don't want the government to control anything! We don't want to be forced to do anything! We don't want you threatening us, but you are trying to do all that and more, anything you can get by with.

    Mr. Obama, you spoke and still speak about "fair" and "fairness" -- I've seen clips of you using those two words over and over. Once when you were speaking to Joe the plumber. If you really wanted fairness and to eliminate lots of wasteful spending and pay that Chairman Hu back what we owe him - then for God's sake man implement THE FAIR TAX. Are you afraid of that because you won't immediately know how much tax money will be coming in, then you won't know what pork you will be able to push through? Well for one thing sir, right now, over 50% of Americans (well they think they are) aren't paying one cent in taxes of any kind. They deal strictly in cash money, gee, who could that be? Hmmm. Well sir they have more money than anyone can imagine and they do spend it. The Fair Tax would make everyone pay taxes. Can you imagine what 100% of people paying taxes on what they can afford to purchase would rake in? Then you know all those IRS people that Timmy G was going to reign over? Poof, you won't need them - oh dear, they will have to get real jobs, too bad. So think what that will put back in your kitty. No IRS, and I don't think you'll need the Federal Reserve any more, because you will have so much money from taxes you won't need the Bernank to print any more. Oh, and if we pay China back think how strong our dollar will be, prices might even go down to what they should be. People might be able to keep their houses. You need to get rid of that Mr. Potter attitude you have! We want Bedford Falls, not Pottersville. What will all the progressives do? Well, they can pack up and move the hell out of our country, but it's OK, there are lots of other countries (like China) where they can live happily ever after. Then you can take your socialized medicine and shove it!

    You are exactly on point. Ad to the format, the desire to drive energy prices way up. First it was the cap and trade scheme to in Obama's own words drive energy prices sky high. Then there was another crisis to exploit. The BP oil spill provided the excuse to cut off all offshore exploration and the raising of Opec's pricing is simply supply and demand kicking in. Obama has to use his "poker" face to appear like he wants to turn things around but no such thing will happen with him in office. We really have very little knowledge of what is really going on because there seems to be a gap in investigative journalism. There is no pressure at all on Obama to help bring down oil prices. I don't think the left counted on the reversal of congress so fast and what looked like a shoe-in is becoming more difficult but Obama has made us way more beholding to China by this debt run up. His political philosophy I think is not far off theirs and who knows what intelligence has been kicked out by the administration to the Chinese, just like it has been sent to Assange. I don't see a good long term scenario for the USA . If I were running the deal I can tell you there would not be many Federal Agencies standing when it is over. We don't need cosmetic surgery, we need a major operation to survive.
