REAGAN OR ME?

Filed under: — @jphoganorg @ 2:03 pm

Another?

Others?

I haven’t had time to study such, time kept moving on too quickly.

But - now with the "community organizer" as President and to as the "un-community" president?

But - now with the "internet sav campaigner" now President and to missed new tech opportunities?

I do not know how much I put of my thinking as Reagan’s or from Reagan Revolution that may have been more of my own considerations to maximizing opportunities in furtherences from such especially if new orders became present with a becoming by America into a "sole superpower" role.

With so much now attempted as new better directions in policies and politics I have had to consider fewer were of my thinking than I once was of pondering.

So now we have Debt Commission "findings" concluded and voting approaching.

What have we forgotten to consider?  Where have we forgotten to look back to?  How have we forgotten to synthesis and reconsider what may be right in front of our eyes anew?

Simpson and Bowles?   Have we forgotten a sociological considering of our communities as per?

Simpson and Bowles?   Have we ignored how much of welfare and medicare are of a pre-internet era where technology wasn’t available to "enforce" or "police" cheaters in a local healthcare providing?

Have we forgotten to look at Healthcare as a national issue as now an unecessary consideration because of the internet and even the welfare and care for the elderly once with "national" arranging a fair alternative to prevent unbalanced providing by localities, and with over-burdening on any "locality" that dared attempt an improving on their own first?

Is it not true that we started providing welfare and healthcare at national level simply because too many could cheat any other method without much fear and that now local solutions in new "internet world" of interconnectivity could allow a more local construct?

Do we just bring about devastation upon our community structures in natural sociological and economic sense by now attempting to add "healthcare coverage for all" to national jurisdiction instead of now considering at least for a reasonable period that even welfare and medicare (national caring for young and elderly) could too now exist soundly at mere county levels?

So we did become the world only SUPERPOWER, and after I had considered for at least a decade how such transitioning could be used to max towards renewal around federalism issues and discussions and common sense, American style.

Yes the problem used to be that a city, county or state didn’t dare make first moves to "better care" for young or elderly for fear that mass migrations would happen into their jurisdictions so presenting a unmanageable burden beyond the "fit and able" ability to provide.   Such is now a manageable concern not needing continued "nationalization" maybe to quite really so, and much due to computers and internet.

A nation wide solution may still be needed but now with a "national solution" not necessary.  A competitive county based system would keep a working within "sense of community" necessary for communities to still be "communities".

We couldn’t have reached this point without the reaching in old federalism debates around the 90s moves in community policing "decentralization" and so also with then "liveable cities initiatives"  and we couldn’t have taken such far enough for such without computers and the internet such that what was once a rediculous proposition now to quite plausible and doable.

Will President Obama become the "un-community" President?   Can he avoid such "tag" but with a considering of how many "national solutions" once the "only solution" now have new more local and community centric posibilities?

Yes, it once in the days before computers and community policing was an idea with a near impossible considering, but one now quite advanced past - too many would have been able to cheat a local improvement too easily and too many other towns would see a "benefit" in not improving so that their "needy" would move out instead, and to an area "providing."

Will President Obama become the "un-internet" President?   Will he miss completely all the opportunities of and from such just for an ideology towards centralized nationalism, to socialism? 

How have we gotten so far from healthcare as a community based socio-economic of integral to sense of community and sense of survival for and of community once more of either raising its own to become future doctors for others of their own community or just thinking about what is needed to have a doctor want to be in their community as an integral member of such community and its fight and competitions to be better or at least as good as most other communities around the globe?

It just is dangerous to think that because we have cared for likely to be forgotten youths and elderly at a national level we should then move to covering all healthy and able, and especially after members of our societies have invented and created, and studied and perfected to new ways such that what was once our nations only option as "nationalizing" is now maybe the less good alternative moving forward. 

A loose federation of county-wide community centric independent but united and maybe county/state based, partly, care and coverage centers seems a simpler and more equitable "modern" governance opportunity.

And, where such also relates to "healthcare coverage" history as designed still from a enticement to "employee retention" and as a employer based insurance product construct many questions still remain as to how to work such metrics and quantitative and qualitative analysis of underwriting within "market" system would be maybe better to a county-based not strictly employer-based competitive considering where employers maybe to be of "options" for employees different within different counties but with a motivation to participate in their communities general economic comparative advantages in healthcare providing.

So we have systems now of designs of such from a time when such was the best or only option.

So now we have computers and the internet and don’t need to usurp to national socialism or for regional fairness, and so don’t have to deal a blow to our nation’s vast differences in "sense of community" across our lands.

Really!  Right?
