The Chief Medical Editor for NBC says she made (read forced) her children to sign up for Obamacare because it is their patriotic duty. This is an interesting twist on a law that mandates people purchase a product and violates their Constitutional rights. I should not be surprised because liberals will scream about patriotism when they want to force something on people or need to shame people into following along.
There are a lot of people who do not like Obamacare and have voiced their opposition. Hillary Clinton once told us that dissent is patriotic (warning screeching voice) so now we have two opposites. How can it be patriotic to sign up and patriotic to disagree?
Patriotism is cultural attachment to one’s homeland and devotion to one’s country. Signing up for healthcare is not patriotic. Being forced to do so is definitely not patriotic.
One form of patriotism involves serving in the armed forces of one’s home nation. We have an all volunteer military but men are required to sign up in case a draft is ever needed. We have had drafts in the past (most recently during the Vietnam War) and there were a huge number of people opposed to it. People burned their draft cards and dodged the draft and were hailed as heroes by liberals like this Chief Medical Editor.
If signing up for an unpopular (and unconstitutional despite the SCOTUS) law is patriotic then signing up for and being part of the draft (were one to be instituted) must also be patriotic.
So, if the country held a draft right now do you think this Medical Editor would make sure her kids signed up or do you think she would encourage them not to?
Hell, it is patriotic to enlist in the military and that is not a popular choice (based on the small number of people who do so) so if Dr. Nancy Snyderman of NBC really wants her children to do something patriotic she should MAKE them join the military.
I won’t hold my breath.
I will also set her straight. It is patriotic to NOT sign up for Obamacare and to oppose this overreach of government. The first patriots of this nation opposed an overreaching and oppressive government and we got a great nation.
Unfortunately, idiots like Snyderman, Obama, liberals and RINOs are destroying this nation.
But hey, because of their actions they will see lots of patriotism…
One last note. If Obamacare is so great why would she need to MAKE her children sign up?
Never surrender, never submit.
