11) The Legitimate Function of Civil Government
WHEREAS, God is Sovereign over all the world and has divinely instituted civil government among men, for His own glory and for the public good, and that for the administration of this institution He has ordained civil rulers to exercise their authority under Him in obedience to His laws in order to promote justice, restrain wickedness, punish evildoers, and protect the life, liberty, and private property of the citizens, and provide for the domestic and national defense; and
WHEREAS, when civil government assumes responsibilities and authority beyond this well delineated scope it occurs at the expense of the other God-ordained institutions, the Family and the Church; now therefore,

WHEREAS, this system of independent economic actions, freely taken by millions of consumers and businesses, has proven to produce the highest standards of living in every country where it has been adopted, and
WHEREAS, private medical practice is being choked by corporate socialism, which is the cooperative effort of insurance companies and government to destroy competition and replace it with central planning called “managed care,” and
WHEREAS, liberal socialistic politicians are using alarmist tactics to sell their plans for socialized medicine, called universal health care, and
WHEREAS, HMO and PPO insurance plans have failed to offer an answer to the increasing cost of health care and yet the overall cost of health care has continued to rise, and
WHEREAS, socialized medicine inevitably leads to poor quality, rationing and increased taxation, and
WHEREAS, most Americans want to determine their own destiny and, historically, have loathed the idea of government bureaucrats dictating what is best for them, and

WHEREAS, because of high deductibles, the HDHP is much less expensive than standard medical insurance, and
WHEREAS, HSAs are devised to allow you to choose and pay for your own maintenance of your health, and
WHEREAS, once you reach your annual insurance deductible, which you pay from your HSA, then your additional medical expenses will be covered by your HDHP, and
WHEREAS, you own and control the money in your HSA and may invest it just like an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) as well as use it for a wide variety of medical and dental expenses, and determine which physician, dentist or chiropractor will care for you, and
WHEREAS, no government bureaucrat or insurance company should be permitted to interfere with your freedom to choose the type of medical care, and
WHEREAS, your employer may contribute a portion or the full amount to your HSA, but you still own and control it and being able to contribute to an employee’s HSA offers businesses an opportunity not only to provide their staff with affordable health care, but also to dramatically reduce their cost for medical insurance, now therefore,
BE IT RESOLVED that the Republican Party of Texas calls upon Congress to repeal Obama Care and further calls upon the U.S. Congress to pass legislation which would encourage businesses to promote and participate in Health Saving Accounts for their employees, allowing the free enterprise system to operate effectively.
WHEREAS, any individual should have the freedom to work in the job he desires without being forced to join or pay dues to any organization; and

WHEREAS the communist democrats want to grant full citizenship to these illegal immigrants and demand that there be open borders for immigrants, and
WHEREAS the communist democrats have granted the right to vote to illegals in cities that they control, and
WHEREAS the communist democrats want to use this open-door policy to gain more supporters for subverting this country and turning it into a communist dictatorship, therefore

BE IT RESOLVED that the Republican Party of Texas call upon the Texas Legislature to repeal the Business Tax.

WHEREAS, the TMB disregards the patients’ affidavits when they state that they are pleased with the care of their physician, and
WHEREAS, the TMB hires anonymous doctors to review the records of the patients whose treatments are under question and these hired guns invariably recommend disciplining or revoking the license of the physician on whom the anonymous complaint was filed, and

WHEREAS, this type of compelled medical experimentation on humans violates the 1947 Nuremberg Code, which was developed after the Nuremberg Trial of medical doctors who experimented on prisoners at Nazi concentration camps, and
WHEREAS, the first principle of the Nuremberg Code is an individual must freely give his informed consent to participate in a medical experiment, treatment or procedure, requiring that an individual be informed of risks and benefits of the experiment, treatment or procedure, and
