Emotion is the tool, that one utilizes to push through and implement a progressive agenda. Individuals that are otherwise, extremely intelligent, become putty in the hands of politicians with bad intentions. Some people throw all common sense out the window, when emotion kicks in. We have seen this quite a bit lateley, with the attacks on the second amendment, and healthcare. This progressive tactic, has been very effective the last 100 years, as the federal government has slowly transformed the country into a parasite infested free for all. Toxic legislation, such as Obamacare,is sold to the public, and everyone is told, "healthcare for everyone". After all, who can argue against giving everyone healthcare?
Sounds great on the surface. What a great humanitarian cause to push for in America. So, under this new legislation, everyone will be healthier, and happier, right? Not exactly. For those that work past the euphoric ring that this may have, a breakdown of the facts, and the actual contents of the 2700 pages of the so called Affordable Care Act. Forcing insurance companies to provide coverage to millions more, but forcing these companies to send reimbursement checks to customers that do not have medical expenses, that equal a set percentage of what they pay for a premium. Doesn't that pretty much destroy the whole idea behind insurance? But, how many people knew that these type of things existed in the ACA? Probably not many.
Remember Nancy Pelosi's timeless statement, "We have to pass the bill, so you can find out what
is in it"? I think that a public statement of that nature, is very telling. While conservatives were yelling from the
rooftops, telling everyone that the ACA is bad news, the rest of the country was preoccupied with snookie, the Kardashians, dancing with the stars, and american idol, and the notion that this President was, " such a great speaker". Emotion is a trojan horse, used effectively as a tool when attempting taking away our rights. What have they done with the second amendment? They take a single event like sandy hook, and use children as pawns in order to bring people on board in support of gun control. The use of such a tragic event, to push through a political agenda is disgusting! It shows, that the intentions behind these legislative power grabs, are not compassionate, and they are nefarious at best, criminal at worst. But, the progressives come out smelling like a rose, becasue they just tell everyone that they are just trying to "save the children". Uninformed voters will take them at their word and continue to believe that they are for the little guy. They continue to jusitfy their actions and policies, by stating their "good" intentions. This from so called intelligent, college educated, DC oligarchs. I can't figure out how someone with a college degree can make political calculations, on important issues, using only emotion and not accessing a single brain cell. But, given the current culture in America's universities, i guess it shouldn't be a suprise.
