Watch: British MEP Daniel Hannan interviewed about Britians government ran health care and as a friend asks Americans to consider

Daniel Hannan has become quite a friend of the conservative movement in Europe and America. For more on him see: Video of British MEP Daniel Hannan speech at Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom and has some comments concerning Britains National Health Service and check out links within. Also, note that his 2.5 million YouTube hit video speech against Gordon Brown and the labor party is quite applicable to our current government. It is in the above links. Where are our American Daniel Hannan's?

Note another big hit speech at a government hearing in the US at Government hearings becoming popular on YouTube calling for a new category on YouTube with now 1.1 million and growing hits since July opposing ObamaCare.

And Tim Hawkins comic parody of "Candy Man" called "The Government Can" is up to almost 500,000 hits this last week. My guess is this is already Tim Hawkins biggest YouTube hit by far and will probably only grow.

Also, consider that Japan just recently had a landslide election of moving from left to right as did Europe and Canada before. Should this not be somewhat of a warning from voters abroad for us Americans as Daniel Hannan argues? See: First Canada, then Europe now Japan moving from left to right in recent election landslide. This of course doesn't mean they are necessarily socially conservative or the same conservatism as in America but none the less moving in that direction as opposed to away. And it appears as America sees more of what our government is currently trying to do we to will be heading in that same direction see telling recent polls at .

Either way God is still in control and Jesus is on His throne and for more on that see:

ObamaCare Violates Financial Privacy. Cloaked in the unassuming garment of "fraud protection". ObamaCare in its current form would require the IRS to divulge taxpayer identity information to the new Health Choices Commissioner, including filing status, modified adjusted gross income, number of dependents and "other information as prescribed" by regulation.

Howard Dean: Trial Lawyers, Tort Reform Too Tough. Former Democratic Party chief and presidential candidate Howard Dean candidly admitted to a town hall audience last week that "the reason tort reform is not in the [health care] bill is because the people who wrote it did not want to take on the trial lawyers...that's the plain and simple truth."

Although Mr. Dean's honesty is appreciated, it isn't comforting. As this NCPA summary explains, tort reform should be an integral part of health care reform. Moreover, according to an NCPA analysis, tort reform lowered health care costs for Florida's businesses and employees. Texas, like Florida, has also benefited from tort reform. Governor Perry recently explained that because of tort reform Texas doctors now spend 27 percent less on insurance and applications to practice in Texas have increased by 57 percent. Many of these doctors are opening practices which serve rural and poor Texans. Why? With tort reform they can now afford to practice there.

As Texas and Florida demonstrate, tort reform is an effective way to decrease cost, increase access and improve quality of health care. What's truly amazing about Dean's statement is that unwillingness to upset the trial lawyers' lobby outweighs the desire to improve American health care.

What can you do to fight ObamaCare?

Educate All Americans. ObamaCare represents a threat to the fiscal and medical health of all Americans. As taxpayers and as patients, we simply can't afford government-run health care. If you have friends and family who think the health care debate doesn't affect them, have them read the following articles. They'll reconsider.

  • Take them here for an excellent "big picture" review of the U.S. health care system.
  • President Obama recently pitched his policy proposals at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire. If they believe every well-spoken word, they may want to see this.
  • Send them here if they think the cost of ObamaCare won't fall on the middle class.
  • Do they think that ObamaCare will remain at 1 trillion dollars? The Senate Joint Economic Committee has reason to believe otherwise.
  • Massachusetts has a government-run public option. The NCPA sees a few problems.
  • Think that liberals are the only ones trying to fix health care in the U.S.? Think again.
