Redefining Obesity, Conservatism

W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States of America, is a
Socialist. Bush, dubbed a
by many, has allowed his Health and Human Services Department to redefine
obesity. In so doing, he has subtly, quietly redefined conservatism.
Many in America, and throughout the
world deem Fox News a conservative media outlet. On July 16, 2004, they ran
a report entitled "Medicare Recognizes Obesity as Disease." Charles
Krauthammer, speaking on Fox's Weekend Live, admitted that this new
definition would have one good effect and three bad ones. The good: fat
people, by U.S. standards, have no role in their obesity. Because it is now
considered a disease, fat people will receive money from the tax coffers,
through Medicare. They will possibly be eligible for such necessary medical
treatments as liposuction, weight-loss programs, and tummy tucks.
Krauthammer went on to explain that
this would devastate the already ailing American health care industry.
First, Medicare taxation levels must rise to accommodate the chubbies.
Second, insurance costs will rise, to accommodate the chubbies. And third,
the U.S. court system, already in shambles, will become further clogged with
lawsuits by chubbies who blame food producers for their "disease."
What is Bush thinking? How is this
happening under a conservative administration? I contend that this is just a
further advancement of the New World Order's plan to socialize every country
on the planet. Still, how is the Bush Presidency a conservative affair?
President G.W. Bush has brought in a whole slew of socialist programs that
would have made Bill Clinton blush. Furthermore, had Clinton's team backed
such proposals, Republicans would have bleated like the ignorant sheep that
they are. Bush signed the Farm Bill of 2002 into law, subsidizing already
wealthy mega-farms with $190 billion in taxpayer dollars. Socialized
farming, plain and simple. Republicans bleated when Hillary tried to
implement a socialized health plan. Yet, Bush was lauded, or at least no one
bleated, when he allowed $400 billion of our future earnings to be used for
a socialized prescription drug plan! Even crazier than that, Bush raised the
amount of spending to the arts by $18 million. The Republicans obviously
want the State to sanction art with tax dollars, even more of those dollars
than the Democrats want to spend. CNN, on July 17, 2004, said Bush spent a
new $25 million to drug test our kids, treating them guilty until proven
innocent. He spent a new $23 million to promote good character in your
child. Who decides what good character is? Now that obesity will be thrown
into the New American Socialism mix, it seems, for Bush, good character is
taking money away from people who work hard and eat healthy and give it to
artists, farming conglomerates, rich old people, government schools, and
This sleight-of-hand by liberal
Republicans sporting conservative sheep's wool has historically pulled the
wool over the eyes of their grassroots constituency. Gary Allen's 1971
classic, None Dare Call It Conspiracy, is, perhaps, the easiest book
to understand concerning the international bankers' and Communist's branches
of the New World Order. Nixon is considered one of the most staunchly
conservative Republicans to have ever held office. After his defeat by JFK,
and a second defeat by Pat Brown, in the California gubernatorial race,
Nixon took residence by and worked for Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller. After
adding exponentially to his bank account, Nixon was put into office by
Rockefeller. He ran on a platform of smaller government. Allen writes,
"During the first year of his Administration Mr. Nixon announced his 'New
Federalism.'" It would, for the first time; provide a Guaranteed Annual
Income; double the number on welfare; increase tremendously the power of the
executive branch." Nixon even passed the anti-States' rights "revenue
sharing with the states." He claimed this would give power to the States.
History shows that the Fed has wielded this scheme to strong-arm the States
into passing a dizzying array of Federal laws and programs.
defines "Socialism" as "a system of society in which the means of production
are controlled by the State." From Fox News and HHS director, Tommy
Thompson: "Treating obesity-related illnesses results in billions of dollars
of health care costs, Thompson said." It is obvious that production in
America is controlled by the U.S. Government. The methods of controls are
many; taxes, regulations, lawsuits, laws, surveillance, databases, to name
only a handful. Any businessman knows that you will have to dance through
several hoops to start any business. Even a sole proprietor with only one
product working from home will have to do the dance. Even more so, as
home-based businesses are heavily watched by the IRS.
There was a time when Republicans
and/or conservatives would never have put up with such bleeding-heart
liberal policies. These policies are borderline Communist, and possibly
treasonous. To make matters worse, and more complicated, George W. Bush is
following in a long line of Presidents who cede American sovereignty to the
United Nations. Furthermore, he has kowtowed to the European Union, imposing
more hardship on our manufacturing and farming industries.
G. Edward Griffin exposes in his
Fearful Master, the Communist and Globalists' creation
of the United Nations.
Robert Welch, founder of the John Birch Society,
confirms this information in his book,
The Politician. The
United Nations has publicly announced endorsement of anti-American,
anti-Bill of Rights world laws. They seek the disarmament of the entire
Earth. They want global taxation. Through the U.N., American money is handed
out freely to corrupt regimes of 3rd World Countries. In so
doing, the U.S. is indirectly advocating World Socialism. To add insult to
injuries, the U.N has been implicated in stealing U.S. taxpayer donated
dollars for personal gain in the ongoing Oil-for-Food fiasco. An American
whose political identity is defined by the terms of true conservatism would
be against the United Nations and World Socialism. There is such
conservative in Congressman Ron Paul. Since he came into office in 1997,
Congressman Paul has proposed annual bills that would completely remove
America from the United Nations, their un-American legislation, its
entangling treaties, and its call for the destruction of our country.
Obviously, liberal Clinton never supported the measures. Since Bush was
elected in 2000, a Republican-controlled legislative and executive branch
might have seen Paul's vision come to fruition. This has not been the case.
Bush has consistently gone on record stating that, while the U.S. doesn't
have to abide by U.N. rules pertaining preemptive war, he advocates the
continued presence of the world government.
The European Union certainly does
not have U.S. interests at heart, and neither do we fund them like we do the
U.N. Bush has paraded himself as a tough guy in the foreign arena. However,
on July 15, 2004, the Centre For Media Alternatives-Quebec paints a
softer, weaker man. Nicholas Khulish states in his article, "Euro Brash: Why
George Bush Takes Orders from Pascal Lamy," that The E.U. President demanded
that Bush eliminate tax break for American businesses importing to Europe.
Bush did just that. Many Republicans point to the abysmal job growth as
proof that Bush's plans are working. What they don't tell you is that a
large percentage of those jobs are GOVERNMENT JOBS, paid for by, you guessed
it, the public.
It should be noted that
Merriam-Webster has a second definition for Socialism. It is this: "a stage
of Society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism
and distinguished by unequal proportion of goods and pay according to work
done." Bush's new definition of obesity, as reported by Fox News, is just
that. By taking goods and pay away from healthy, working people, and giving
it to fat and unemployed people, the President is setting a new stage in
American society. This comes at a cost. By endorsing socialist programs in a
march toward communism and world government; by redefining obesity;
President George W. Bush has redefined conservatism.
Conservatism, as practiced by the
Bush White House, and as voted for by Republicans, is nothing less than
