|†† Thank you for coming this evening to
discuss The Healthcare Proposals of the Candidates and the relationship to
American and Christian values. It may seem unique that one assembles such a
forum but I am truly convinced that this is the most important election in my
lifetime. Not only are our Christian principles of responsibility,
accountability, the freedom to express and live our faith at risk but our
basic American freedom principles are being put to the test. Our Christian
principles and those principles of individual freedom promoted by our
Founding Fathers are much more in harmony than discord.
|†† I am motivated by the obvious concerning
direction this country may take in the near future.
|†† To clarify, while much of what I have to
say reflects my personal views as this is not a function supported by any
non-profit, it also reflects the views of many with whom I have had the
opportunity to interact. America and American Healthcare are at a crossroads.
One candidate uses the facade of compassion and ď fairnessĒ to entice and
convince us more government intrusion into healthcare (socialism) is the
answer. The other wants to empower YOU the individual to be in charge of your
healthcare and life.
