Insurance is a form of gambling – you win if you lose (get sick and claim to require health care) and lose if you win (remain healthy.) There is no reward for eating well, exercising and not making stupid choices. Why should people who take prudent care of themselves be forced to pay into a gambling pool for the treatment of those who willfully chose not to? How is it American to force people into this gambling pool?
Add to that the fact that I don’t even want the “prize” of modern medical treatment if I “win” by getting sick. Modern medicine was hijacked nearly a century ago by Rockefeller and Carnegie who bought seats on every medical college board to influence their direction in favor of Big Pharma profits. Consequently, today, all doctors are now licensed and trained in institutions that indoctrinate them how to push pills and perform surgery; little to no time is spent on nutrition and actual healing, while ancient effective healing arts like acupuncture, chiropractics and naturepathy are shunned by modern medicine and the health insurance industry. Big Pharma, bureaucrats, and stupid people remain the only true “winners” in the gambling racket of mandated health insurance.
