The Illusion of Choice Plan

In light of the current presidential campaign and the outspoken desires of both candidates, I thought of a way to get both men running on the same page when it comes to healthcare. First, some context to build my Illusion of Choice Plan upon.

"I think health care should be a right for every American."

"As president of the United States, Alan, I would order the secretary of the treasury to immediately buy up the bad home loan mortgages in America and renegotiate at the new value of those homes -- at the diminished value of those homes and let people be able to make those -- be able to make those payments and stay in their homes."

So, here's the plan. Instead of being responsible and either securing health insurance or paying your medical bills, people should just take out mortgages and pay their medical bills with the mortgage money. Then, folks can just not pay their medical mortgage and the government can buy them up. All is well, everyone - both Obama and McCain - is happy. The government can rosily and magically pay off everyone's obligations. And by pay off, I of course mean take from someone and give to someone else, since the government is not a producer of anything and is impotent in and of itself when it comes to being able to forgive debt and/or pay off anything.

So, The Illusion of Choice Plan is an option, or you can do what's best for individuals and individual liberty - you know, that whole concept that made this country so unique and good in the first place - and vote for Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party. Other acceptable votes would be for Alan Keyes of the Independent Party, Bob Barr of the Libertarian Party or you could write in Ron Paul.
