    I just read about this in another post. If Trump does this, be assured that there will be hell to pay.

    Read this, if you have the time. I will be posting it soon:

  4. Reblogged this on ashiftinconsciousness and commented:
    Is anyone still wondering why Noam Chomsky called the republican party the most dangerous organization in human history?

    They are attempting to increase death, debilitating illnesses and homelessness among the population they say they serve and, at the same time, want to divert the nation’s resources from the working majority to the wealthy, ownership class who do not work or need the money so generously being given to them by economic terrorists.

    If anyone out there believes I am engaging in sensationalism by calling wealthy sociopaths who take from people in need and give to people who have more than they could possibly know what to do with “terrorists”, give me an explanation of what terrorism is and explain how this does not fit the bill. The comment section is open and I have yet to delete or not “approve” a comment on this blog.

    It is honest to say that these despicable “people” do not care about children other than those they gave birth to.

    It is honest to say they care nothing about disabled people who’ve been given a difficult journey in life under the best of corcumstances (relating to social programs and their needs).

    It is also honest to say that these criminals (who manipulate laws in a disingenuous way to appear to be lawful) care nothing at all about anyone other than themselves, their families and their “friends” – though I doubt people like this even understand the concept of friendship. They are nothing more than greedy prostitutes who want everything while giving nothing.

    The hypocrisy of the stated intentions of these people is beyond belief. Their immorality and heartless demonization of “others” is the epitome of dehumanization.

    If humanity does not get together, finally, and put an end to this savage organization, it is unlikely we will survive this century.

    So, suicide and murder will be their legacy even though no one will be around to acknowledge it.

    • Thank you so much for sharing this post, A Shift in Consciousness, and for your powerful advocacy voice for compassionate, inclusive policies and treatment for all people. The deliberate life-threatening violence of GOP policy proposals is alarming and sadly the mainstream media wastes our time by focusing on nonsense. I’m grateful for Nolan’s integrity and courage and for those who are willing to voice their compassionate views.

  5. Thanks for sharing this, Carol. It’s good to know that we still have representatives who are fighting for the interests of the people they serve.

    Thanks for sharing a rational voice still left in Congress. I hope folks start supporting and voting for people like Nolan at the local levels so we can stop this insanity. What a nightmare. I don’t know how the greedy politicians proposing these cuts can sleep at night.

  7. I follow all this fairly closely, Carol. The blatant lack of empathy among Republicans in Washington is stunning. Perhaps things needed to get this bad in order for Americans to wake up and make their opinions known. I sincerely hope that the party of greed and callousness is digging its political grave.

    It is just one in a long list of flagrant lies from a man who is incapable from distinguishing fact from fiction. He will sign anything, doesn’t understand a thing, nor does he wish to, and then try to sell it to the public like it’s the greatest insurance of all time. When will the public wake up?

    • Thank you for your honest comments, Jim. It’s true that there are so many attempts by the president, legislators, and media to spread disinformation. That’s what makes me so grateful for people of integrity and courage like Nolan who continue to do what they can anyway, and for all my WordPress friends who share beauty, hope, and truth. Sending you my best wishes. ❤

    Thank you for sharing this article with us. I pray it doesn’t come to that, but we shall see. We need more people fighting against this, because this is just ridiculous.

    Thanks for sharing Carol … it’s more or less what’s happening in the UK, with a corrupt government privatising health care (the NHS) and lining their own pockets (Most of the ruling elite we call ‘our’ government have personal financial interests in the private health care field ) but the blind British public STILL keep voting them into power. I am so disillusioned with what’s happening and the enmity this lot are creating…..

    This is so interesting and thought provoking. Medicare, and health insurance in general, can be tricky. Funnily enough, I just wrote up something similar about health insurance, and whether the cost should depend on one’s health status (whether sicker people should have higher premiums). Food for thought!

    • Thank you for your thoughtful comments, Dawn. Differing worldviews have a profound impact on how people perceive freedom and responsibility. In some cultures or nations, individualism is valued more than a beneficent sense of collective responsibility for each other. Sadly, my views don’t match those of people in power at the moment in the U.S. where I live.
