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 10 days away (or less!) 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:

Now is the time to act.

    Speaking about socialized medicine… Death panels? We don’t need no stinky death panels.

    Amends the Illinois Anatomical Gift Act. Provides that, on and after July 1, 2012, each resident of Illinois who is of sound mind and who has attained the age of 18 years is presumed, by operation of law, to have given all of his or her body for any organ donation purposes. Allows an individual to opt out of the presumed donation by executing an anatomical gift as otherwise provided in the Act or by filing with the Secretary of State an organ donor opt out document….the Secretary of State and his or her employees are immune from any civil or criminal liability in connection with the Organ Donor Opt Out Registry.

    Please call Massa’s office to tell him not to resign. He is a NO vote and now is going after the WH and dems in Congress.

    Phone: (585) 218-0040

    He needs to stay and keep exposing this crap to the public, and he has a huge spotlight on what he says. He needs to stay so that people see the thugs in the WH and Congress.

  • Major Kong

    Yep. Once the government gets to make decisions regarding your health, you are no longer an autonomous individual.

    same old crap. Socialism NEVER has worked never will.

  • Atlanta Media Guy

    Kill the Bill! Keep calling your Representative. If your Rep is a NO vote, call Reps from adjoining districts. Jam the phone lines! We must not relent until this bill is killed!

    Best way not to have to repeal anything? Kill this Bill, make then start over! Folks this is the time to be heard. Do not get caught up in March Madness until we kill this bill!

    Did I say it before? Kill the Bill!

    Re: IL–>if any folks are in Jerry Costello’s district, he appears to be hedging on his position. I have called as has a caller to Dana L’s show. Further, there are robo-calls going out in his district to get him to vote for the bill. Please call him and urge him to oppose this bill.

    Secondly, Capitol Fax Blog from SPFLD, IL, reports on IL State politics. Miler’s reporting that Axelrod is going to leave the WH to work on Quinn’s campaign for Gov.

    Also for Illinoisans, support Bill Brady, pro-life socially conservative Roman Catholic GOP Gov nominee–not from Chicago! His big issues will be budget and corruption issues.

    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.

    By telling everyone that we’re doomed if this passes, what you’re doing is setting everyone up to be apathetic in the next election. If you convince people that once this bill passes there will be no recourse, then why will our side bother voting ever again?

    All we can do is tell Congress of our opposition. If Congress chooses to go ahead with this, there is nothing we can do to stop it. This will probably pass. This insistence that we stop it is pointless, since we have no way of stopping it.

    The insistence that it can’t be repealed is a massively self-destructive approach. All it will do will be to suppress conservative turnout in the next election.

    Seriously, explain to everyone: If the health-care reform can’t be repealed and we become a socialist state, why should conservatives bother voting ever again? There would be no point, since the war would be permanently lost, right?

    You fail to realize there is always a way to repeal a law. You just do not want to think in those terms. Use their terminology against them. What is it they like to say about Mao and power coming from what? How ’bout we show ’em? Discourse with these people is dead. They want to Rahm it down our throat? OK. Watch what we do to their throats.

  • newton

    Attorneys General from many states are lining up to be the first to sue the Federal government on Tenth Amendment grounds, because of this abomination of a bill.

    I hope there are individuals out there willing to sue as well. It might be that our only hope is in the courts.

    Absolutely right on. We are now at the juncture where the opportunity has arisen to defeat the insanity of Leftism once and for all. For over two centuries those who have the most investment in the survival of the culture have been playing defense against these monsters and allowing them to set the terms of the discussion.

    Politics and culture are not an event; they are a process. Not only can the corruption of this administration be undone and ultimately defeated, our only hope is to continue the battle until every Socialist/Progressive/”Liberal” of every stripe is ridiculed and reviled in the public square every time he leaves the house.

    The greatest enemy is the apathy of the electorate. Believing that electing a Republican for whatever office instead of recognizing the true enemy is nothing but cultural suicide, and is ultimately the act of a coward.

    Wake up, America!

    Great post! Tell all your friends, we MUST STOP this BS HC Bill.

    If people want the whole country to look like Detroit someday, they should just keep voting for Democrats.

  • john

    Have they actually scheduled a vote for the 18th or is that just the day that Gibbs threw out there?

    If it’s the former then they think they have the votes. If it’s the latter then they are just doing the same thing they’ve done since july (it was supposed to be done before August recess, the end of september, the elections, and the SOTU).
