The problem is that these medical mishaps with government intervention are becoming more commonplace. And do we really expect them to lessen when government has totally taken over the medical world via Obamacare?
If you think the federal government will never tell you what to do with your child’s health care, remember that the Affordable Care Act provides (via grants to states) for home visitation programs by government agents to educate parents on child behavior and parenting skills.
Imagine how that health care provision might play out as state officials walk into your home invoking their values and beliefs upon your parenting and children.
It’s time for the government to stop overreaching into our families and dictating where children can pray, what children will learn, what children will eat, what medical treatment children will receive, and where children will go to school.
Government needs less of a role in running our families and more of a role in supporting parents’ decisions for their children.
Children belong to their parents, not to the government. And parents ought to have the right and government support to parent them without federal mandates, education, or invasion in our homes.
That is why many of our Founding Fathers shared a sentiment that can be summarized in this statement: That government is best which governs least.
As Huckabee put it, “I know that mothers and fathers raise better children than governments ever will.”
