This is a letter to our friends –

Repeal and Replace

During the first part of the last Presidential campaign, conservative candidates raised cheers with, “We are going to repeal Obamacare!” Establishment politicians recognized the popularity of the issue. In order to preserve the power (and perhaps graft they received) they needed a subtle way of sidetracking the issue.

It only took a word and most of the nation took the bate – “Repeal & Replace.” Today, we hear little discussion of the American culture before and without Obamacare. Once “Replace” became part of the issue, the establishment was back in charge. Unlike initiation of Obamacare, “Replace” was the source of endless debate. “Repeal” was doomed so long as it was linked to “Replace”.

My point – Words mean things. Be careful of nice sounding phrases. Do not let false presuppositions go un-challenged else you may be building a house of cards.
