Well, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) does it again. I have a true love/hate relationship with the ACLU. Sometimes they are spot on, defending the right of Neo-Nazi’s to march in Skokie, Illinois under the First Amendment, and sometimes so totally off base that I want to scream at them. I’ve never been a member, but watch their involvement in various First Amendment, Second and Fourth Amendment and other civil rights cases that I find of particular interest.
Listeners of my radio program know that I sincerely believe that ObamaCare is the proverbial foot-in-the-door that so many liberals despise when it comes to issues they support such as abortion. Abortion advocates will oppose any measure, of any type, that might, potentially, restrict a right to abortion. I use that same proverbial foot-in-the-door analogy to issues I support, such as 2nd Amendment rights, free speech, free association, et al. ObamaCare is a potentially freedom-threatening piece of legislation that has implications for human liberty – if the government is going to pay for healthcare, then they can control virtually everything we do, because almost everything we do affects our health.
A friend (thanks, Tamara, Freya) sent me the following link to an ACLU website. This is a must see video that will explain the dangers of an overreaching, controlling government. This is Orwell on steroids, and we’re on that road to a socialist country faster than you might imagine. Watch, and then, please, pass on to your friends.

ObamaCare. Be very, very afraid.
