What now? What do we do to save the country now? Right after the votes were counted and it started to sink in that Obamacare was now law, I thought of fleeing the country. Fighting has failed; we fought for a year and still lost. What’s left? Flee, right? Wrong. FreedomWorks and Campaign for Liberty can help stop Obamacare before it even gets started. Most of the provisions won’t kick in for years, so now is the time to prepare for war.
The first problem with fleeing is that there is nowhere better to go. By adopting Obamacare, America has adopted the same system as every other country that might be a desirable place to live. Canada and the United Kingdom, America’s two closest cultural cousins, already have forms of nationalized health care. No better options there. My wife is from Poland, and I could easily emigrate there, but my sister-in-law suffered with major head pains for months while waiting for the national health-care system to give her an MRI. So Poland doesn’t sound like a good option either. The other European countries don’t look much better. I heard Rush Limbaugh may head to Costa Rica, but I burn easily, so that’s out too. Most of the developing world lacks enough doctors, medicine, and facilities to make them even worth considering.
The second problem with fleeing is that fleeing is cowardly, and would mean handing over our country to the progressives.
Fleeing is plainly not an option. The only option is to continue the fight. There are still ways to do so. The Supreme Court can strike down Obamacare as unconstitutional. A massive voter push can elect a Congress with the guts and principles to repeal Obamacare. Civil disobedience and protest, petitions, and letters to editors always sit in the armory of freedom.

Arm yourself with knowledge and motivation, voter registration and determination. In the famous words of Captain John Paul Jones, “I have not yet begun to fight.”
