It is the middle of the night and, once again, I am unable to sleep.
I've had this same problem every night for the last three years.
I have a wealth of knowledge on free market health care reform, and there is not a single person on this planet who will talk to me.
I live in Utah, but am not LDS.
The LDS control the Republican Party and Conservative Think Tanks and lock out all non-LDS.
The Left welcomes non-LDS into the fold, but do not like to hear ideas ... especially those of the free market type.
Anyway, I had a fiendish thought before going to bed. I thought about crashing OccupySLC and giving my presentation there.
My presentation is actually very clever. I lead in with an attack of the insurance industry. I use solid mathematics to show that insurance concentrates wealth. My presenation also highlights the role that insurance played in the financial collapse.
The left loves to hate insurance; however, my attack is not an attack on the insurance company. It is an attack on group funding of individual consumption.
I would let loose with criticisms of big banks, big insurance, hedge funds and Wall Street ... but when the polemics where through, I would show that the solution is not socialism but the restoration of the free market.
The solution is to replace group-insurance with self-funded health care.
OccuplySLC would love the attacks on big insurance and Wall Street. Some in the audience my like that my solution is to restore health freedom.
The community organizers at the event would be aghast.
Anyway, once again I cannot sleep. If ever I found a group interested in learning about free market health care reform, life would be grand.
Sadly, I live in the most oppressive state in the nation (Utah).
Fortunately, the United States invaded Utah and the Constitution gives me the freedom to dream outloud.
