I think we need to adopt a slippery slope concept for any idea. Our slippery slope needs open doors and lead to more and more freedom from government. How we can do this? Here is my idea, we need to accept incremental wins towards freedom. Every time we pass a new law or regulation, it needs to move us along closer to being independent.
Circle back to health care. How do we inject this slippery slope idea into it, we need to move towards taking back our freedom? The first step is opening up the availability of access to different policy choices, and hand the keys back to a consumer. Allowing to shop across state lines, while giving tax credits for purchasing your own insurance, and giving individuals a subsidy of tax dollars into a health savings account.
Now most purists like myself would say, no way government should not be involved, we put our foot down, and just vote no because it is not constitutional. Giving tax subsidies to others to fund their health savings accounts, is Socialism. Though I agree with that premise, it forces us into an all or nothing mode, while progressives are always glad to take small wins, knowing their slippery slope will lead to more government intervention. As I see it, it would be constitutional in the sense that we have reduced the level government is involved in our system, opening the door for its eventual exit. This creates the necessary condition for freedom, and eventual free market, since subsidies can simply be rolled back, now that the market is functioning closer to how it would under free market conditions. If we were to take small wins, and begin creating the conditions of freedom, chunk by chunk, one day we may actually have our country back.
We simply need a Libertarian Slippery Slope Policy
