Mahatma Gandhi: Mr. Obama's Hero Would Oppose Obamacare

We in the Gandhian community are well aware that Mr. Obama, some time ago, stated that the number one person of History he would seek to have dinner with is Mahatma Gandhi.  I sent Mr. Obama a copy of Gandhiji's book, "India of My Dreams" several months ago via my library project (Mahatma Gandhi Global Library and Book Exchange), and I got it back about thirty days later with pages turned and phrases underlined.  Clearly, Mr. Obama is a fan of Gandhiji.

What I keep trying to convey to Mr. Obama and the world is that Gandhiji is not a Marxist and therefore has no sympathy for the violence of taxing the working people of any nation.  Gandhiji was a philosophical anarchist, meaning that he did not believe that government has the moral authority to exist.

So, Mr. Obama, do you think a man who rejects the moral authority of government to exist believes in government's moral authority to tax for healthcare?

Gandhiji was a Libertarian Socialist, as well, meaning that he did desire that people care for one another without respect to personal property rights, by free CHOICE.  Even Ron Paul is on Youtube speaking of Libertarian Socialism as a fine CHOICE.  If you want to live in a commune, go ahead and do it.  There is no violence in that CHOICE.  But when the state sticks a badge and a gun in your face and tells you to join the state commune, this is violence.  Violence is illegitimate to Truth, for that which comes form Truth is Peace.
