What Have You Done?

Hi everyone. If you’re wondering why I’m whispering right now, it’s because I want to let you in on a little secret. This is a secret about conservatives, and if you’re not one yourself (first of all, I’m shocked you’re on this site. Congrats for being open-minded enough to reach it)I sincerely hope you’re sitting down, because what I’m about to say may shock you.

Are you ready? Are you sitting down? I don’t think you’re ready. Okay, I think you’re ready.

Conservatives, believe it or not, are not monsters.

Conservatives are not, by and large, inherently evil.

Conservatives do not hate the poor.

Conservatives do not hate minorities (in fact, some of us are minorities).

Conservatives don’t go to cancer’s Little League games and root for it to hit a walk-off home runs.

Conservatives live on your street. They work at your businesses. They drive on your streets. They’re normal people, with normal lives who believe one simple thing above all:

Individuals can run the world better than big government.

It’s a simple edict, but it’s one which has left conservatives much maligned and vilified by the mainstream media and those unfortunate enough to believe it.

Here’s the simple-minded liberal explanation for why conservatives want to overturn Obamacare is that conservatives don’t want poor people to have health care. Conservatives hate the poor, they hate minorities, they hate the elderly and they hate the sick. That’s the simple way that liberals can avoid having a legitimate debate about the merits of Obamacare. That debate would make them uncomfortable, because it would force them to face unpleasant facts.

The fact of the matter is the government has absolutely no business running our health care system. Furthermore, it has absolutely no business forcing me to pay for other people’s health care. I already do plenty of that by paying taxes for Medicare, I don’t need more responsibility.

Anyone with the unfortunate presence of “@BarackObama” in their twitter feed will see five sob stories a day about the unfortunate people who have been benefited by Obamacare. My heart breaks for them. No one should have to choose between eating and getting their children health care. My heart breaks for them, truly, just as my heart breaks for Corea, a young boy in Kenya who I was blessed enough to meet whose family does not have electricity or enough food to eat. My heart breaks for them all, but it is not the government’s job to rescue them.

Here’s a thought… why don’t we step to the plate? Liberals are no more willing to pay more taxes than any conservative, they’re just more willing to make everyone else do it. Warren Buffett wants the government to take more taxes from the rich; great! Step to the plate and pay for someone’s sick kid yourself. I’m sure Mr. Buffett has tax experts going over every inch of his financial records to make sure he doesn’t pay an extra cent in taxes.

I’m willing to donate to charity. I’ve done it in the past. I want to reform health care as much as everyone else, but Obamacare is not the answer.

My heart does break for the sick and the poor in this country, but it breaks even more for the hypocrites that run this country and tell me Obamacare is the solution.

You call me the devil for saying Obamacare is not the solution. You tell me I hate the poor? Let me ask you this. What have you done?
