Seeing Red after Black Friday


Black Friday was a total bust. I did not have a single sale on Cyber Weekend.


I am still committed to this last ditch effort to start a conversation on free market health care reform.

My plan had been to get a small group of people together to start a business association. The business association would work on creating a ground up system for self-financed health care.

People could then use this association to claim that insurance is the problem. Rather than mandating that people buy insurance, people need a viable mechanism to opt out of insurance.

I admit. I've been completely unable to find people willing to talk to me. (I am a non-Mormon in Utah. Like the Muslim Brotherhood, Mormons are a closed and intolerant people.)

In 2009 and 2010 I drove to Denver, Phoenix, Reno and Las Vegas to find people to talk with. Unfortunately, it is hard to get a project up and running from a hotel room.

So, in my last ditch effort, I will form the association as a sole proprietorship. To join the association, I will ask people to pay a "One US Dollar" (as defined by the Coinage Act of 1792.) Coinflation says a silver dollar is worth 26.30 Federal Reserve notes.

The primary goal of "the association" is to host a meeting on Free Market Health Care Reform. People who pay the membership fee would get to vote on where and when the meeting takes place. Perhaps the meeting could include a conference call.

The first several membership fees have to go to legal fees to set up the organization.

If 20 people joined the association, I would have about $500.00 which would be enough to drive to Phoenix rent a conference room and drive back to Utah (assuming I slept in the car).

If 30 people joined, I might have enough money to travel to Southern California.

Of course, there are so many other things I want to do. I would love to publish a book on free market health care reform. This would cost $500 to $1000. I would love to make a YouTube video. That would probably cost $500, I would also love to support others who are standing up for freedom.

I am absolutely positive that the path I am following could be used to turn back ObamaCare. ObamaCare is premised on the assumption that insurance (or Socialism) is the only way to fund health care.

I can prove mathematically that this is a false assumption.

To create the mathematical argument is based upon a multidimensional model of health care, which is easy to do in a face to face conversation with a blackboard, but extremely difficult to do in a blog post.

Think back to calculus. It is extremely easy to write a calculus proof on a chalkboard, but very difficult to write the same proof in essay form.

The plan is to create an alternative to insurance. If there was an accepted viable alternative to insurance, people could strike at the heart of ObamaCare by demanding that they be given a way to opt out of ObamaCare.

Creating a viable alternative to insurance can only be done in a face to face meeting. Trying to do it online is doomed to failure.

Can you name the last blog post you've read that contains a mathematical proof?

Most people never see such posts because they don't work well.

So, it is quite frustrating. I can see all sorts of things that could be done if a small group of people met together and spoke with each other. Yet the cost seems out of reach. I don't want to take anyone's money if I cannot produce something that makes difference.

This box shows eBay auctions for Silver Dollars. People are buying silver dollars for over $26.00. My guess is that buyers think the price will go up while sellers are thinking they would rather have cash than old coins.
