Do you want to know what socialism looks like?

Socialism is where you don’t have a choice of what you’d like in life…

Food brands, cars, internet, healthcare…

Under socialism, you wouldn’t get to choose ANY of it. In that system, you just have to deal with what was given to you—or worse, make do with what’s left over.

But we live in America, and we DO get to choose…

We can choose what to buy and what not to buy, which kind of insurance best suits our needs (or whether we have it at all), and our internet providers will give us the best coverage at the best price.

More importantly…

We get the choice of life or death.

Under socialism and its big brother communism, you don’t get to make that choice. It’s made for you.

If they want you dead, you die. We’re seeing this playing out in Italy, where healthcare professionals have said that they just can’t give ventilators to anybody over 60…

Meaning, if you were born in 1960 or earlier and you contract the Wuhan virus in Italy, good luck—because you’re not going to get the best care possible. You’ll be lucky if they even make you comfortable.

We’ll Never Have That Choice Made For Us… Will We?

We don’t have to worry about that in America, right? We’re not a socialist country, right?

Well, the answer might surprise you…

A new report is suggesting that some hospitals are considering issuing a universal DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) if a patient diagnosed with the Wuhan virus flatlines.

This means that a patient could be in otherwise GREAT physical health and just happens to have caught the coronavirus…

And if complications from the disease cause that patient to flatline, they won’t get the vital help needed to bring their heart back online—even if it only take one little zap from a defibrillator.

They’re saying if you have it and you go into cardiac arrest…

That’s it.

No help is coming.

Does this not go against the Hippocratic oath that most doctors take before donning the scrubs and stethoscope?

If the “Do no harm” line wasn’t enough…

What about this part of the oath stating “I will use those dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according to my greatest ability and judgment, and I will do no harm or injustice to them.”

“… according to my greatest ability and judgment, and I will do no harm or injustice to them.”

Not allowing them to live would be an injustice…

In fact, it would be the biggest injustice of them all!

You May Be Left To DIE!

But this hasn’t stopped hospital staff from discussing the possibility of this happening.

Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago has been considering the DNR policy for Wuhan-infected patients regardless of the wishes of the patient or their family.

Richard Wunderink, one of the hospital’s intensive-care medical directors, said they would have to ask the governor of Illinois if this desperate policy shift is even legal or not.

The hospitals’ concern is that there won’t be enough healthcare workers left to treat sick patients…

And while that is a valid concern, it shouldn’t stop them from doing their job.

Wunderink told the Washington Post, “It’s a major concern for everyone. This is something about which we have had lots of communication with families, and I think they are very aware of the grave circumstances.”

How about a different solution?

How about you change the protocols regarding “code blues?” Maybe instead of a crew of 20 people, you whittle it down to four…

And these people get priority treatment when it comes to protective equipment like masks and gloves?

There has to be a workaround other than just letting Americans die…

We’re the greatest country in the world – we can beat this!

Don’t give up on us yet …
