16,500 IRS agents will enforce your medical well-being. But not one new doctor. Welcome to Obama’s Stasiland.

President Obama’s putsch of socialized medicine has left many of us grabbing for the US Constitution, looking for the clause where the Federal Government is granted the right to force citizens to purchase a government product.
We can’t find it. Because it’s not there.
We’re asking, “How did this become law? Where are we headed?”
From the dreaded Wikipedia:
Between 1950 and 1989, the Stasi employed a total of 274,000 persons in an effort to root out the class enemy. In 1989, the Stasi employed 91,015 persons full time, including 2,000 fully employed unofficial collaborators, 13,073 soldiers and 2,232 officers of GDR army, along with 173,081 unofficial informants inside GDR and 1,553 informants in West Germany. In terms of the identity of inoffizielle Mitarbeiter (IMs) Stasi informants, by 1995, 174,000 had been identified, which approximated 2.5% of East Germany’s population between the ages of 18 and 60.10,000 IMs were under 18 years of age.
What happened when the Berlin Wall went up? The private sector died. Government became the sole employer. And the function of government was to invade, infiltrate and control the lives of the people. How did they do it?
They made everyone collaborators – against each other.
“While these calculations were from official records, according to the federal commissioner in charge of the Stasi archives in Berlin, because many such records were destroyed, there were likely closer to 500,000 Stasi informers. A former Stasi colonel who served in the counterintelligence directorate estimated that the figure could be as high as 2 million if occasional informants were included.”
“Stasi efforts with one agent per 166 citizens dwarfed, for example, the Nazi Gestapo, which employed only 40,000 officials to watch a population of 80 million (one officer per 2,000 citizens) and the Soviet KGB, which employed 480,000 full time agents to oversee a nation of 280 million residents (one agent per 583 citizens). When informants were included, the Stasi had one spy per 66 citizens of East Germany. When part-time informer adults were included, the figures reach approximately one spy per 6.5 citizens.“
When the private sector is destroyed, the government becomes the sole employer. When the government is the sole employer, competition is forbidden. When there is no competition, dissent is not acceptable. Hence, one spy per every 7 citizens.
“Full-time officers were posted to all major industrial plants (the extensiveness of any surveillance largely depended on how valuable a product was to the economy) and one tenant in every apartment building was designated as a watchdog reporting to an area representative of the Volkspolizei (Vopo). Spies reported every relative or friend that stayed the night at another’s apartment.”
“Tiny holes were bored in apartment and hotel room walls through which Stasi agents filmed citizens with special video cameras. Similarly, schools, universities, and hospitals were extensively infiltrated. After the mid-1950s, Stasi executions were carried out in strict secrecy, and usually were accomplished with a guillotine and, in later years, by a single pistol shot to the neck. In most instances, the relatives of the executed were not informed of either the sentence or the execution.”
Obama’s State Medical Intervention Law has just been forced through an unwilling Congress despite opposition by some 70 percent of the American public. I think we can call that a coup, can’t we?
The “Law” will put insurance companies on the ropes, without examining a centimeter of the pharmaceutical corruption that is responsible for a nation of pharma-drug-addicts, popping pills that mostly don’t work, for conditions that mostly don’t exist except because of very poor, highly refined and processed industrial diet and lack of exercise.
Instead, the Federal Government will now oversee your life, your personal choices, your fitness, or lack thereof. It will do so by hiring not a single doctor. Not one. But it will hire over Sixteen Thousand IRS agents to oversee and enforce Obama’s Socialized Medicine.
Welcome to Stasiland.
There should be three words and one thought in the minds and on the tongue of every concerned citizen. Those words:
And vote all of them out, and then impeach the leadership. Legally, while there is still a legal option to do so.
