"We must have universal healthcare. I'm a conservative on most issues but a liberal on this one. We should not hear so many stories of families ruined by healthcare expenses." (Donald Trump, The America We Deserve)
The full repeal of Obamacare was probably the single most important issue Trump campaigned on that enabled him to win the election. The media would have you believe that the so called failure to pass the proposed repeal bill is a significant loss for Donald Trump and his presidency. The most likely truth is that it was probably a set up designed to give the impression that Conservatives in Congress are responsible for holding back any real progress. Destroying the Conservative movement has been a long time goal of the left and now they have the opportunity to show Republicans that they are standing in the way of their president's agenda. Trump has recently announced that he intends to push back against the Freedom Caucus in retaliation for their vote against the proposed Obamacare replacement. The Freedom Caucus, and other Republicans, were right to vote against it as it made no real reforms in health care and kept many of the Obamacare provisions in place. Americans don't want a replacement, they want repeal, period. That is what Trump promised and that is why Trump won.
It is no surprise that Trump is vowing to work with Democrats in coming up with a solution to the failed Obamacare law. The Affordable Care Act was likely designed to fail in the first place in order to create the demand for a solution, which would be single payer. this strategy is known as the Hegelian Dialectic or the problem-reaction-solution strategy. Democrats have been searching for a way to get single payer health care passed for nearly a century and it seems, with the election of Trump, they may actually get it. Too many Americans fail to realize the extents to which Democrats and other progressives, including progressive Republicans, will go to get what they want. The name of the game is deception, plain and simple.
The healthcare fiasco, in this authors educated opinion, is proof positive that there is an effort to deceive the American people into accepting a single payer healthcare system. Consider the following quote from Rules for Radicals a moment.
There's another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevski said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution. (Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals)
What this alludes to is the idea that people will eventually accept things that they normally wouldn't if they have been brought far enough into a state of despair. Americans would likely have laughed at the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency two decades ago; however, after eight years of far left radicalism and the prospect of a Hillary Clinton win, Donald trump was the best choice presented to us. Also, consider for a moment that those in the establishment knew full well that Hillary Clinton was not going to win. The vast majority of the American people were angry and Washington was facing severe backlash for their inability to listen to the American voter. If they wanted to achieve their single payer healthcare goals they would have to put an individual in office who can deceive the American people. Donald Trump, an admitted Democrat, was able to convince millions that he was conservative mainly because people were so afraid of Hillary winning. This is the same strategy they employed with Bush and Obama. As noted in this authors article on The Project New American Century, Obama's wars were the same that were planned before September 11 even happened. They presented George Bush as an abysmal failure and Obama as the one who would save us from it all. By doing so the wars originally planned decades before September 11 were able to continue virtually unnoticed by the anti-war movement. In the case of Hillary Clinton and Trump they were presented as exact opposites when in fact, the main policy issues that are desired, such as single payer healthcare, are a common goal. This is how they control your choices America. Also, consider the fact that Donald Trump is likely going sign into law a bill that allows internet providers to sell your browsing history. This is being opposed by Democrats on the grounds that it is a violation of an individuals privacy rights to do so. Since when do Democrats care about our privacy? This is also a deliberate strategy, in this author's opinion, to keep us confused and unsure of which leg to stand on. Consider the following quote from a former KGB agent, Yuri Bezmenov, also known as Thomas Schuman, concerning a Soviet tactic called Ideological Subversion.
An overt slow process to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite the abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community and their country.
America, we have reached a point in our society where nothing is as it seems. Donald Trump is not a conservative. He will work with the Democrats to one, instill a single payer healthcare system and two, destroy the remaining Conservatives in congress by giving the impression they are standing in the way of his grand plans to save us all. This of course, is this authors humble opinion.
