Recently, I watched a video by the ACLU that I actually thought was interesting. No, that is not a typo, I did write ACLU, as in American Civil Liberties Union. Normally, these guys are anything but friendly to conservative causes, but just this once they got it right.
Their video stresses the need to limit government intervention in private citizen’s lives. Keeping your health care records, store purchases, etc. secret should be within your rights.
Now, I rarely agree with these guys, but they got it right. We can’t just blindly trust that every action that government takes is for our own good. We must realize that sometimes personal aspects of our life are personal for a reason.
Once you give that information to a government bureaucrat, they cannot help but use that information to “help you live a better life.” And their definition of better may not match up with what you had in mind.
So before you let Uncle Sam or Big Brother into the doctor’s exam room with you (through ObamaCare), remember that they will bring their bureaucrat friends with as well. Good luck getting quality care then.
