Obama is successfully using the gun issue to create division and diversion. Although it is highly unlikely that Obama could pass gun prohibitions, Conservatives are likely to react themselves into a corner and alienate the electorate.
The freedom movement would probably win the day if ever there was a group of liberty lovers brave enough to discuss free market health care.
Unfortunately, the Republican Party is so married to the Insurance Industry that it is physically impossible to get a Conservative to sit in a room to discuss free market health care reform.
Insurance is not free market health care. Insurance was a contrivance of progressives to overcome perceived failings of the free market.
Since is is physically impossible for a Republican to actually apply the concepts they principles they preach to the challenges of the day, any attempt to start a conversation on health freedom is doomed.
Health Care could be a winning issue for the freedom movement. All that it would take is for a few brave people to meet to discuss free market health care. Unfortunately, since people have taken to the foolish notion that closed-mindedness and base-reaction can conserve liberty, such a meeting could never take place.
