More than 1,090,000 Americans have signed the "Free Our Health Care NOW!" petition against nationalizing our health care system. This would not have been possible without your support, so thank you! However, we need to keep adding members to our team to help make a difference in this battle and say NO! to government run health care!
If the proposed health care legislation becomes law, one of the hardest hit groups will be our senior citizens.
The rationing of health care is of particular concern to seniors, and we have heard from many of you who are worried about how rationing would impact your own health care, and that of your elderly neighbors, friends, and family.
In a January 2009 article called "Principles for Allocation of Scarce Medical Interventions" (a nice way of saying "rationing") Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a health reform advisor to President Obama, proposed a rationing system called a "complete lives system." His system would ration care by focusing on adolescents and young adults first, trying to save the most "life-years" overall. His system would even use a lottery to allocate some medical care. You can read the article here: http://www.ncpa.org/pdfs/PIIS0140673609601379.pdf.
In focusing on adolescents first, Dr. Emanuel says: "Adolescents have received substantial education and parental care, investments that will be wasted without a complete life. Infants, by contrast, have not yet received these investments. ... [This system] treats life-years given to elderly or disabled people as objectively less valuable."
Should your family decide the best care for your elderly loved ones, or should it be rationed by the government?

Why Worldprofit is the Key to earning online not just now -- but for YEARS to come. We are often asked, What is Worldprofit?
The answer more complex.
When we as Co-Founders (George Kosch and Sandi Hunter) started Worldprofit on a kitchen table in Edmonton, Alberta in 1994 we were a hosting company. We then started offering website design. We had a few customers. We grew, and grew some more, really fast. We had big ambition and perfect timing to take advantage of a new and exploding industry, the World Wide Web.
Here's some historical context. When we started Worldprofit in 1994, Google didn't exist, they didn't arrive for another 4 years in 1998.
When we submitted Worldprofit's website to be indexed for the first time to the main search engine - it was 1995 - it was Yahoo. Yahoo was a fledgling, an upstart so small we were on a first name basis with the team at Yahoo. Facebook was a latecomer not a…
The Secret $20 Bitcoin BlueprintPosted On Jun 21, 2014 By Louis Basenese [curated by Glen Brink for MyBitcoin Blog] The first cryptocurrency exploded on the scene back on May 22, 2010… That’s when a web developer purchased two Papa John’s pizzas using 10,000 units of Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency — meaning there’s no middleman (the bank) getting in the way. Back in 2010, Bitcoin was trading for less than a penny. In fact, 10,000 bitcoins were worth about $30 at the time. Then the price of the digital currency quickly skyrocketed higher. By 2014 — just four years later — that same $30 starting stake was worth more than $5 MILLION. But get this… Today, that same $30 is now worth a life-changing $20 million! Cryptocurrency BasicsIn the past, all transactions took place with an intermediary — like a bank — overseeing the process. The bank would verify the transaction, adding a certain level of trust. Cryptocurrencies completely revolutionized the old system — cutting out th…
