HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius preaches the collectivist line

H/T:  SunMyrtle Beach Online

I follow politics fairly closely, but I don’t typically write about it unless something really grates on my nerves. Today was one of those days, and this article was the one that set me off.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius gave a speech in South Carolina today to a black nurses group. I only mention that it was a BLACK nurses group because the article in the SunMyrtle Beach Online pointed out that fact. I’m not sure what the race of the nurses has to do with anything. I certainly don’t care what my nurse looks like as long as she does a good job.

Anyway, Sebelius tried to make the point that the nation’s health is a matter of national security, and that a healthy workforce is key to our prosperity. That’s pretty funny coming from one of Obama’s people, since they don’t seem to care at all about national security. We have a illegal aliens streaming across the border and guns being sold to Mexican drug cartels. We have a federal government suing states for trying to enforce their borders to project their people. For Sebelius to claim she’s concerned about national security is a joke.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, she had some interesting things to say to reporters afterwards. “… we need all 300 million Americans to be equipped and fully participating in society.” “… harms the productivity of our country.” “… get the green light and move forward.” This is typical collectivist-speak. To the radicals in the Obama administration, people aren’t individuals.  They’re just part of one big homogeneous society whose purpose is to work in unison for the greater good of the whole. Of course, that mass of nameless, faceless people is too stupid to make it’s own decisions, so it should rely upon the elite like Sebelius, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, etc… to make the decisions for it.

Well, she’s wrong, just like all the radical leftists are wrong. Society isn’t a faceless mass of drones. It is made up of individuals. Sometimes they make good choices, and sometimes they make bad ones, but the choices were theirs, and that’s what makes them free.
