Health Care for Some or All

I have never understood how those who consider themselves religious can be so mean as to actually lobby against providing little children with health care.

I know all the arguments that conservatives make against socialized medicine, but I also recognize that every single politician who argues against providing health insurance for all personally enjoys government provided health insurance.

Every time Catholic Senator Brownback says the United States has the best health care in the world, we all have to shout back that we are really 37th in the world.

I remember when Chief Justice Rehnquist had an earache. He was taken to Walter Reed Army Hospital. They didn't ask him for his insurance plan. They didn't require him to fork over any co-payment. They gave the bill to you and me.

Same thing when the doctors fixed Vice President Cheney's heart for the umpteenth time. He goes around telling us how horrible government provided medical care is and how better off we are without government provided medical care then he goes to a government hospital, is seen by government doctors, receives expensive government provided medical care, and finally sends you and me the bill to pay.

I want the same health care Dick gets. I want to be enrolled in the Cheney Health Insurance Plan.

It's called H.R. 676 introduced by Representative John Conyers and currently enjoys 87 co-sponsors and has been endorsed by 298 labor organizations across the country.

Petition your Congressman and Senators to support Medicare for all, HR 676 and if you get into a town hall meeting with any of the candidates for President, ask them whether they support HR 676.

Welcome to the Secular Anti-Defamation League

This blog is dedicated to promoting the rights and answering the critics of the Freethinkers in the world.

One should wonder why the land of free and home of the brave needs to advance the liberty of individuals to think freely. Yet we see everyday that there are those who demand that we cave in and give up our rights to think for ourselves and let them do our thinking for us. There is an almost constant drone of persons who want to tell us who to love, how to love, where to love, when to love, and why to love someone. There are those who want to control even our most basic internal bodily functions such as reproduction. There are those who tell us what we can and cannot eat, smoke, drink, snort, and shoot.

America is no longer a place safe for those who love liberty and want to live in peace. This site means for us to create a community where Secular Humanists can learn together how to fight back and secure our liberty and a place in the world.
