Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote her by using her full name. Her first name is Krista. Excerpts from her letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]. Here we go!
I am a registered Democrat. However, I do not agree on all the issues that Democrats stand for. The big issue is their universal health care for all. Sounds all warm and fuzzy. But dig deeper. A vet who is seeking health care waits for an appointment that is six months out. Some die before being seen.
Krista goes on about that a bit longer, but let’s skip to her next subject. She says:
In Oregon, they have assisted suicide. [Gasp!] A woman who was ill went to a doctor to receive health care and get well. Instead, it was more cost effective to “put her down.”
How did things get so bad? Krista tells us:
It all started with evolution (science), [Aaaargh!!], Darwin, atheism, big brother and now socialized medicine for all members of a class or group population administered by state/government agencies.
That’s one of the worst paragraphs we’ve ever encountered. As we said in Marx, Stalin, and Darwin, Darwin was neither a communist nor a socialist; his work didn’t influence Marx (or vice versa); and communism has been around since it was praised in the bible. We also said:
Marxism’s maxim: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs” is pretty much the opposite of natural selection, according to which only those best adapted to survive will breed the next generation.
I’m not a socialist. I do not promote to or promote socialism contributing to a political party that advocates socialism.
We can’t argue with that. Then she asks some questions:
Does the collective large group become broken down further, such as race, age, sex? Where does God fit into all this?
Krista answers only her second question:
My Lord is in control of my life and death, not some appointed man or agency.
The only two possibilities she recognizes are god and the government, so when it comes to her own life, Krista isn’t in control. The letter ends with this:
Appointed by who? Appointed by who? Amen (so be it). No on collective or governmental “ownership.”
So there you are. It’s all Darwin’s fault. Nice letter, Krista.
