We’re here to help you! The Veterans administration keeps a database administrated by secret committees that lists vets as “disruptive” and “disgruntled,” which it then uses to restrict their treatment.

Among examples of patients’ behavior referred to the VA’s “Disruptive Behavior Committees” (yes, that’s what they’re called): venting “frustration about VA services and/or wait times, threatening lawsuits or to have people fired, and frequent unwarranted visits to the emergency department or telephone calls to facility staff.”

As Krause explains, the Disruptive Behavior Committees are secret panels “that decide whether or not to flag veterans without providing due process first. The veteran then has his or her right of access to care restricted without prior notice.”

Obviously, the VA demonstrates once again why we must put the entire healthcare industry under government control. If they can do it to vets, why shouldn’t the rest of the government not have the power to do it to us all!

    And it is said that “there are no death panel’s”. Looks like they arise as a natural function of empowering individual human beings with the power to choose what will be and what will not be for other individual human beings under their control. You don’t have to purposefully create them, they create themselves.

    To better understand the potential for “good” and well meaning people to go “bad” is demonstrated in an experiment conducted by Phillip Zimbardo in something called The Zimbardo Prison Experiment.

    This is the underlying nature of the human being and it does not matter how much you analyze or intellectualize it, this is what we are. What stands between our nature and these bad results and the coming bad results of Obamacare and now the VA and equality and freedom?

    That’s right its the Constitution. That’s all that stands between us and it.
