'Obamacare' was never about health care

Editor, the Advocate:
This article is intended to present an alternate viewpoint regarding President Obama's real reason for "Obamacare." I will summarize this alternate viewpoint, which was put forth by Wayne Allyn Root, the author of "The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide" and a writer of many articles. Basically, Root claims "Obamacare" was never meant to be about better health care at lower cost but was rather a brilliant, cynical and purposeful attempt to damage the U.S. economy, kill jobs and bring down capitalism. Root claims Obama's hero and mentor is Saul Alinsky, a radical Marxist intent on destroying capitalism.
The following is a brief outline of what Root claims "Obamacare" was created to do: 1) "Obamacare" was to bring about the Marxist dream of distribution of wealth. Rich people, businesses and the middle class will be stripped of their money by paying more taxes and higher health premiums.
2) "Obamacare" will cause chaos in the economy, thereby killing decent-paying jobs for the middle class, thus making them more dependent on the government.
3) "Obamacare" will increase the power of the IRS. The IRS will have the right to snoop into every aspect of your life and go into your work records to find you and to intimidate you. This means the Obama administration will have access to your deepest medical secrets and if desired, use this information against political foes. Remember, the IRS has already harassed Republican nonprofit groups trying to obtain tax exempt approval.
If this is Obama's "end game," then "Obamacare" is truly a success. No matter whether you believe Root's analysis, it appears most of his viewpoints are already happening.
I leave you with a quote Nikita Khrushchev made in 1959: "Your children will live under communism. You Americans are so gullible. No, you won't accept communism outright, but we'll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have communism. We won't have to fight you; we'll so weaken your economy until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands."
