We should have a choice in where our money goes. Period.
Obviously in the world we don’t have a choice most times, because the government either takes your money without asking through taxation (which is theft, by the way), or throws you in jail for not involuntarily being opted in.
The same goes for health care. I should choose where my money goes. That can be handled by what employer I work for, or what insurance company I patronize. I might agree, or not agree, with certain aspects of health care, and some parts I might never utilize as a man, or as just who I am. Should I have to pay for those, involuntarily?
Obamacare, which is my main sticking point, takes away your choices, should you choose to opt-in. The other options? Get your own insurance, which is unreasonable for someone with a lower income because it’s so insanely high, or not get insurance at all, then by fined by Obamacare for not having insurance.
Is that freedom, for anyone? “You will have health care, or else we’ll take away parts of your income which goes toward you taking care of yourself on a daily basis.” The best way to be pro-choice AND pro-life is to let people decide exactly what they want to be part of, and not to penalize them if they don’t do something you agree with. I know that’s a fucking stretch in today’s world, but it’s a real goal, across the board.
The beauty of a fully voluntary society is that you simply have choices in what you do and where you put your energy, time, money, and self. Today, you don’t always have that choice. That bothers me. There’s no real healthy (!) competition in the health care and insurance industry. The differences in premiums, most times, are little to none. There’s no free market, and ease of choice right now. That bothers me. There’s nothing voluntary about it, unless you simply choose to not participate in getting insurance.
But we see where that gets ya.
