  March Madness     

March closes out most basketball seasons.  As only one team emerges the tournament champion, most futilely begin practicing every fall knowing the odds are heavily stacked against them.  Answer me this:  Would you take to the court knowing your team surrendered long before the opening tip-off?  Probably not, yet this exact situation exists in the political arena when the right compromises before the gavel raps.  Amazingly, Democrats capitalize on this weakness as seen by them advancing their Marxist agenda even though voters benched their team into the minority.  Republicans should be scoring at will, but they compromised before the ball was put in play.  Here is how. 

God is the source of our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and securing these rights is government’s only function.  Nothing more, nothing less.  The restraints our Constitution places on the federal government is problematic for progressives, so ironically and possibly criminally, they ignore the very document they swore to defend their first day in office.  For example, Americans were shackled with Medicaid and Medicare in 1964 and freedom in the form of dollars, began shifting from workers to the ruling class.  Little by little, the impoverished and seniors became trapped in dependency while the producing class became trapped in debt.  As typical every time government meddles with price controls, healthcare costs soon spiraled out of control.   

After five decades of this wealth transfer, the ruling class began promoting the only solution to market problems created by government intervention was additional government intervention.  Go figure.  In 2010, President Obama and D.C. Democrats implemented Obamacare; a program designed to collapse under its own weight and it became the largest tax increase in American history.  In 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016 Republicans campaigned on repealing Obamacare and voters benched dozens of beltway Democrats in response.  This brings me to my point.    

Republicans symbolically passed dozens of Obamacare repeal bills knowing President Obama’s veto was certain.  President Trump’s Cinderella story surprised all Democrats and ruling class Republicans and with Obamacare repeal suddenly probable, leftists and media propagandists insisted the GOP produce a compromise replacement plan.  They did, thereby surrendering the point that state sponsored healthcare is a necessary and proper function of government.  It is not.  This was the mother of all turnovers with America losing the ball on the inbounds play.  The GOP Freedom Caucus is correct, repeal Obamacare without replacing it with a friendlier flavor of tyranny.
