Why Voting GOP Will Only Guarantee More Obamacare
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “The GOP is in on this. They are as big government as big government can possibly be. Yes, there are a few that lean libertarian and a few, you can count them on one hand, strict constructionists, following in the footsteps of Congressman Ron Paul, that don’t vote for anything that’s not constitutional. Folks, these people are what is known as gadflies. They’re weirdos. They’re whackos. They’re mocked by the alleged conservative press corps, mocked and made fun of, as am I.” Check out today’s transcript for the rest….

Mike: The GOP is in on this. They are as big government as big government can possibly be. Yes, there are a few that lean libertarian and a few, you can count them on one hand, strict constructionists, following in the footsteps of Congressman Ron Paul, that don’t vote for anything that’s not constitutional. Folks, these people are what is known as gadflies. They’re weirdos. They’re whackos. They’re mocked by the alleged conservative press corps, mocked and made fun of, as am I. I can also guarantee you something.
No one is going to resort to and no one is going to imply that we have a spiritual problem, which is at the root of all these evils. You remove God, you make room for the anti-God; you know him as Satan. He is the diabolical — that’s right, Latin for devil, diablos — force that is behind all this stuff.
Whether you believe it or not doesn’t matter because, as I’ve told you and will continue to tell you, he doesn’t sleep, he doesn’t take naps, he doesn’t take losing very well. As a matter of fact, he gets angry when he loses and he keeps pushing. You can see this all around you in all the conquests that have been made thus far. Ladies and gentlemen, it has gotten so bad now, the cesspool of diabolical media that we live inside of is so bad now that former radicals that were rock-and-rollers are now looking at it and recoiling in horror of what they participated in and what they helped create. They look at it in abject shock and horror.
The good news is, our numbers are increasing. The numbers of the faithful are increasing. Yes, that includes our Judeo-Christian brethren of all denominations, before you can send me hate mail and accuse me of being a shill for Pope Francis. Let me honestly, and hopefully in a spirit of love and comradery, lay that out. Our numbers are growing. We’re winning converts. You know why? Because the truth finds a place in men’s and women’s hearts that seek it. Once it does, it very rarely turns its way back, unless, of course, He, Diablos, is successful in directing that endeavor. Be of good heart.
I’m warning you, you’re going to be told to do things. Your friends are going to curse you. They’re going to tell you to get behind, [mocking] “Let’s get behind our kids in 2016. Let’s take this country back.” You’re not going to take it back by electing a president that’s going to do the same thing that his predecessor did but is only going to do it in a different manner. It’s a sinking ship. It’s the U.S.S. Titanic. It’s going down to the bottom of the ocean in a sea of red ink. You can stay on the deck and play in the band if you want or you can jump overboard, hopefully into a lifeboat. I suggest that you jump overboard. Rearranging the deckchairs or telling the band to move to the aft deck, [mocking] “The foredeck is about to go underwater. You guys are on port. You need to go to starboard because Port’s taking on some water, Clark.”
Chris Christie is going to lead this off here. I do not believe that this is anything other than what will ultimately be what campaigns are going to be based on. We’re stuck with Obamacare. We’re stuck with government-fed and government-run healthcare for the very foreseeable future. There are a few ways that you can try and extricate yourself from it. For the most part, we’re all stuck in it because we don’t have very many alternatives. Why? Because they’ve taken them away. To understand Obamacare is to not understand it as a socialist or communist endeavor, it is to understand it as a business endeavor. The insurance companies needed the federal government to bail them out, thus, Obamacare. How did they get bailed out?
We need to force young people that are by and large healthy into paying premiums that they’re not currently paying. If we can do that, then all the other things you guys have forced us to cover that we have to pay, we can pick up the slack. That’s the scheme. That’s the whole ball of wax. While we’re doing that, we’re going to systematically dismantle the care that is accorded for our most vulnerable, the unborn and the elderly. So little attention is paid to our elderly. [mocking] “Their day is gone. They’re not productive anymore.” For Heaven’s sake, they’re our parents and grandparents. The idea that all of them could be farmed out to someplace you see on a television commercial is just repulsive, absolutely repulsive and sinful to Christianity. Where do we start with this? You start with Christie warning you that you’re going to get government-run healthcare and you’re going to get it whether or not you vote for a Republican or a Democrat. Listen:
[start audio file]
Chris Christie: It’s a fiction. It doesn’t work and it should be repealed. However, Republicans have an obligation to come up with an alternative. What are we going to replace it with? What are we going to do to make sure people get provided healthcare across this country in a way that’s affordable. This doesn’t work. It’s a failure. We need to be clear about that, but we can’t just be against something. We’ve got to be for something. We’ve got to put our market-oriented, free enterprise ideas on the table for consideration by the American people, and we’ve got to articulate it in a clear, direct, and, by the way, simple way.
[end audio file]
Mike: Let’s go over a couple things that you might have missed in the first hour. One, governments do not propose market-oriented results or market-oriented plans. Governments propose government-oriented plans. Markets create their own plans. That’s why they’re markets. We don’t have a free market. As a matter of fact, we don’t have anything remotely resembling a free market. You want to see a free market? I’ll tell you where you can find one at. This Saturday, come to downtown Covington, Louisiana and go to the farmer’s market and go buy a pumpkin. That’s a free market. That’s about as close as you’re going to get to it. Go to your little hamlet, your little town square or wherever you have a farmer’s market and go searching for pumpkins. That’s a free market. Even that is regulated in some manner if it’s a big farm that grew the pumpkin by the USDA and by the FDA.
When you hear him say [mocking] “We’re gonna put our free enterprise ideas on the table,” again, if you have to put them on the table, then they’re not free enterprise ideas. They’re government-run free enterprise ideas, meaning they’re not free enterprise; they’re government enterprise. Stop lying. Folks, don’t fall for this. The man just gave you an oxymoron. It is oxymoronic to even utter in public that government, governors, congressmen, etc. advocate for and propose market-based solutions to anything. If there was a market-based solution, and there is to almost any problem, then the market works it out. The pricing mechanism, as Tom Woods says, is the greatest mechanism for the
effective distribution of goods and services ever, created by God. The price mechanism solves almost all, not all, almost all.
Let’s try and play what George W. Bush called compassionate conservatives for just a moment, shall we? How can one be a compassionate conservative and run for public office? Not difficult to do. One would be compassionate conservative, which is more appropriately titled, but you can’t hear anyone say this in public (this is a tip, by the way), a Christian conservative. Yes, you could also be a Judeo-Christian conservative. You could say that I call on all Americans and all members of our party to abandon all efforts for government to intervene on behalf of the indigent, the poor, the sick, the starving, the naked. I call on the American sheeple to pick this up. I call on our churches and clergy. I call on the laity inside those churches and synagogues. I call on you to address these problems. We all need to get involved. We all need to love our neighbor as the commandments tell us. That’s compassionate conservatism right there. I don’t have to create a program. I don’t have to have a prayer breakfast. I don’t have to get an act or a writ of Congress. I don’t have to get an act or a writ from the state legislature. All I have to do is actually go out and do it. It’s not hard.
You’re not going to hear anything of the sort, though. You’re going to hear about all sorts of schemes to redirect tax revenue, like the guy that called yesterday, [mocking] “I want to talk about Guido.”
You should have seen the Twitter feed blowing up after this. What Christie is proposing — and he’s the first — is what all the other candidates are going to propose. Some will insist that Obamacare must be repealed. They will then insist that, [mocking] “Our party needs to come up with market-based solutions.” Again, there’s no such thing as a market-based solution that is proposed by a member of a governing body. If they do propose it, then it is a government-based solution.
Now, let me give you a government-based solution that solves the problem. You’ve got to remember, the political class does not want to solve problems, because if they solve problems, what do we need them for? We might actually come around to the idea that we could actually govern ourselves using the little subsidiarity concept, a little republicanism, and acknowledging that we all owe homage and obedience to our God.
