    Here is the best address to ObamaCare!!!


    I was in my neighborhood restaurant this morning and was seated behind a
    group of jubilant individuals celebrating the coming implementation of the
    health care bill. I could not finish my breakfast. This is what ensued: They
    were a diverse group of several races and both sexes. I heard a young man
    exclaim, "Isn't Obama like Jesus Christ? I mean, after all, he is healing
    the sick."

    A young woman enthusiastically proclaimed, "Yeah, and he does it for free. I
    cannot believe anyone would think that a free market wouldn't work for
    health care."

    Another said, "The stupid Republicans want us all to starve to death so they
    can inherit all of the power. Obama should be made a Saint for what he did
    for those of us less fortunate."

    At this, I had more than enough. I arose from my seat, mustering all the
    restraint I could find, and approached their table. "Please excuse me; may I
    impose upon you for one moment?"

    They smiled and welcomed me to the conversation. I stood at the end of their
    table, smiled as best I could and began an experiment.

    "I would like to give one of you my house. It will cost you no money and I
    will pay all of the expenses and taxes for as long as you live there. Anyone

    They looked at each other in astonishment. "Why would you do something like
    that?" asked a young man, "There isn't anything for free in this world."
    They began to laugh at me, as they did not realize this man had just made my

    "I am serious, I will give you my house for free, no money whatsoever.
    Anyone interested?"

    In unison, a resounding "Yeah" fills the room.

    "Since there are too many of you, I will have to make a choice as to who
    receives this money-free bargain."

    I noticed an elderly couple was paying attention to the spectacle unfolding
    before their eyes, the old man shaking his head in apparent disgust.

    "I tell you what; I will give it to the one of you most willing to obey my

    Again, they looked at one another, an expression of bewilderment on their

    The perky young woman asked, "What are the rules?"

    I smiled and said, "I don't know. I have not yet defined them. However, it
    is a free home that I offer you."

    They giggled amongst themselves, the youngest of which said, "What an old
    coot. He must be crazy to give away his home. Go take your meds, old man."

    I smiled and leaned into the table a bit further. "I am serious, this is a
    legitimate offer."

    They gaped at me for a moment.

    "I'll take it you old fool. Where are the keys?" boasted the youngest among

    "Then I presume you accept ALL of my terms then?" I asked.

    The elderly couple seemed amused and entertained as they watched from the
    privacy of their table. "Oh yeah! Where do I sign up?"

    I took a napkin and wrote, "I give this man my home, without the burden of
    financial obligation, so long as he accepts and abides by the terms that I
    shall set forth upon consummation of this transaction."

    I signed it and handed it to the young man who eagerly scratched out his

    "Where are the keys to my new house?" he asked in a mocking tone of voice.

    All eyes were upon us as I stepped back from the table, pulling the keys
    from pocket and dangling them before the excited new homeowner.

    "Now that we have entered into this binding contract, witnessed by all of
    your friends, I have decided upon the conditions you are obligated to adhere
    to from this point forward. You may only live in the house for one hour a
    day. You will not use anything inside of the home. You will obey me without
    question or resistance. I expect complete loyalty and admiration for this
    gift I bestow upon you. You will accept my commands and wishes with
    enthusiasm, no matter the nature. Your morals and principles shall be as
    mine. You will vote as I do, think as I do and do it with blind faith. These
    are my terms. Here are your keys." I reached the keys forward and the young
    man looked at me dumbfounded.

    "Are you out of your mind? Who would ever agree to those ridiculous terms?"
    the young man appeared irritated.

    "You did when you signed this contract before reading it, understanding it
    and with the full knowledge that I would provide my conditions only after
    you committed to the agreement."

    The elderly man chuckled as his wife tried to restrain him. I was looking at
    a now silenced and bewildered group of people.

    "You can shove that stupid deal up your a** old man. I want no part of it!"
    exclaimed the now infuriated young man.

    'You have committed to the contract, as witnessed by all of your friends.
    You cannot get out of the deal unless I agree to it. I do not intend to let
    you free now that I have you ensnared. I am the power you agreed to. I am
    the one you blindly and without thought chose to enslave yourself to. In
    short, I am your Master."

    At this, the table of celebrating individuals became a unified group against
    the unfairness of the deal.

    After a few moments of unrepeatable comments and slurs, I revealed my true

    "What I did to you is what this administration and congress did to you with
    the health care legislation. I easily suckered you in and then revealed the
    real cost of the bargain. Your folly was in the belief that you can have
    something you did not earn, and for that which you did not earn, you
    willingly allowed someone else to think for you. Your failure to research,
    study and inform yourself permitted reason to escape you. You have entered
    into a trap from which you cannot flee. Your only chance of freedom is if
    your new Master gives it to you. A freedom that is given can also be taken
    away. Therefore, it is not freedom at all."

    With that, I tore up the napkin and placed it before the astonished young
    man. "This is the nature of your new health care legislation."

    I turned away to leave these few in thought and contemplation -- and was
    surprised by applause.

    The elderly gentleman, who was clearly entertained, shook my hand
    enthusiastically and said, "Thank you, Sir. These kids don't understand
    Liberty ."

    He refused to allow me to pay my bill as he said, "You earned this one. It
    is an honor to pick up the tab."

    I shook his hand in thanks, leaving the restaurant somewhat humbled and
    sensing a glimmer of hope for my beloved country.
