The fight over The Affordable Care Act is a moral battle as important as the Civil War. It is a moral battle that will determine the welfare of Americans for the next 100 years and is rooted in a simple choice: Do we choose to care about others or do we choose to let selfishness be our master?
Have we become so selfish and uncaring that we thoughtlessly pay our taxes and vote for leaders who attack foreign lands with no real purpose but personal gain, but are unwilling to sacrifice a few measly dollars to save the lives of the downtrodden at home? Have we become so lost in our own superhero fantasies that we have forgotten that there is no battle between good and evil, only a question, constantly posed to each one of us: Are we willing to sacrifice some of our wealth for the welfare of the strangers who are our neighbors, our community, our nation? Or are we willing to bet that selfishness cannot destroy us?
