Call it the Stupidity of the American Voter or Whatever

Dear Gamergaters and SFWA members and my fellow journalists,

You have seen the Gaming industry attacked by these folks, the science fiction field and the media capitulate to them. But they are also in your federal government, behind the scenes, pulling strings and in your pocketbooks, pulling your life and life’s work out.

You have never heard of Professor Gruber erenow? Nor have I. That itself should tell you something. Those who work in this way are not men like Alexander Hamilton.

I received this letter from CatholicVote, which so exactly sums up my outrage, and my belief in the contrast between the Catholic vision of the world and the Morlockian vision of the so called Social Justice Warriors, who are neither warriors, nor just, nor fit for social life, that I need add nothing.

Read the letter. Click on the link below, please. Listen to the sneering contempt in his voice, the infantile pitch, the condescension. This man is the John Scalzi of the Federal Medical Insurance Industry. He is the male Carol Costello. He is Anita Sarkeesian.

The curtain has been pulled back.

This week a video surfaced of Professor Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Obamacare saying:

Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing [Obamacare] to pass…. Look, I wish…we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”

Are you surprised?

Defenders of Obamacare call us selfish, uncaring, and downright evil — all in an attempt to defend their Big Government solution. They make us out to be the enemy and yet rarely end up helping the poor, vulnerable, or the uninsured they claimed to champion from the start.

Is there a better way?

Catholics believe in a different vision. We believe that people are gifts from the Creator, filled with enormous potential. That free people are creative, industrious, and generous. That no challenge is too big because the combined gifts and talents of everyone in society, when unleashed, can solve even the biggest problems. It’s the secret of America’s success.

But now politicians and their friends tell us we aren’t good enough to be free.

Defenders of Obamacare don’t believe people can be trusted with the freedom of picking their own doctor, choosing their own health insurance plan, or negotiating the type of healthcare they want. They certainly don’t believe in the power of free people and morally constrained markets to solve problems. And of course, they insist that Americans are just too selfish and greedy to care for people that need help.

Instead, THEY will decide what is best. And impose it on us all. Because we are all just too stupid to know better.

And they call this ‘social justice.’

Watch the video with your own eyes:

Supporters of Big Government, Inc always claim to be a friend of the poor. They claim exclusively to be the only people caring about “the little guy.”

How can you really say you care about someone when you lie to them and call them stupid?

The elite in Washington love to pass gargantuan 2,000+ page laws that launch a blizzard of rules and regulations – and spawn a hornet’s nest of lobbyists and consultants looking for their piece of the pie.

This is not the Catholic way. Compassion and justice cannot be built on a lie.

The vision of the human person proposed by the Catholic Church is far greater.

And far more beautiful.

America should give it a try.
