(Tim, w/thanks to Mark) Lest there be any doubt in the matter, I'm absolutely opposed to any expansion of the authority and power of our national government in the lives of citizens of our united states. And this is particularly true with regard to what is being referred to as national healthcare. The national healthcare we need is CPR for the Tenth Amendment--not President Barack Obama forcing believers in Jesus Christ to send our taxes to him so he can pay for someone else's daughter to slaughter her unborn child or intimidate someone else's son into pulling the plug on his aging mother.
If you want to read the definitive work on national healthcare and where it will lead us...
send me $12.50 ($10 for the book and $2.50 for postage and handling) and I'll mail you a copy of my Dad's novel, Winterflight, written waaaay back in 1976 and about as prescient as it could be concerning where our country was headed. (Make checks payable to Tim Bayly and mail them to me at Church of the Good Shepherd, 2501 South Endwright Road, Bloomington, Indiana 47403.)
If you haven't yet, do get a copy and read it. Then loan it out to as many people as possible--particularly the Emergent types asleep at the wheel and still admiring their own good taste and enlightened thinking in having voted for a black man.
Meanwhile, here's a good article from today's New York Times showing all's not well in the debate over abortion coverage in our nationalized healthcare.
