Humorous Video: To Be Young And To Think Obamacare Is The Answer

By

August 28, 2013

A hat tip to Steve Forbes, who brought this video to my attention today via Twitter, and to Matt Cover, of Rare.com, who posted it there. It is a delightfully humorous video by Crossroads GPS entitled, “Propaganda,” and it parodies the modern hipsters whose undying blind support of “His Coolness” Barack Obama has wrought so many disastrous policies upon our nation. In this case, Obamacare.

What makes the video delightful is that it demonstrates how the young voters were hoodwinked by his promises and enthralled with the cult of his personality that they engaged in a massive group think, eschewing all forms of discernment. Then it shows the irony of the youth, whose mammoth turnout and lopsided support put him into office, getting the rawest deal under Obamacare, while the president allows the people he demagogued in his two campaigns (“the rich”), which the young unquestionably believed, skate — he’s exempted Big Business, Big Labor and Big Government. Now, the job creators (small businesses), whom the president also lambasted, are so hamstrung by Obamacare that they are not able to hire the same young people who elected him.

All young foolishly think they have the answers. Almost all of the time they don’t. It’s a natural segment of life during the journey into adulthood. The difference between now and previous generations is that a bad vote wasn’t that consequential and that the young understood their mistake and didn’t repeat it the next time. Can’t say that, now.

Obamacare: Hurting most those who put Obama into office — the young.

    The only problem with a video like this is getting the people WHO NEED TO WATCH IT to watch it. :-(

    It is an uphill battle. How do we get it pass those ignorant celibs, the corporate news media, and the government-run schools?

      Tom: Thanks for your comments and question. Social conservatives need to use all the tools available to us, especially social media, to end run those institutions and eventually inculcate our message into the culture at large. We’re thinking of new ways to improve our message delivery and I think conservative organizations are doing a better and better job of it.

      More importantly, it also takes proper upbringing of children which opens up a whole new discussion. It can’t be done with a silver bullet, certainly not through legislation alone. It will take a constant effort to educate people on issues which is what I and TFF try to do, and hope they make the most informed, Biblically based decision, then get active in affecting the public policy on those issues. It will take pastors and churches, and educators, and neighbors spreading the word and educating people in order to restore our society not only from a policy perspective but in how they conduct their own lives. Thank you for reading our blog and all the nice things you have said about it in the past, for linking to it and making it so visible on your own excellent site.
