I have two
Swedish friends – Ronnie and Margareta – that were born and raised in Sweden,
and like me, they immigrated to the United States in the mid-1960s. They have a
number of friends in Sweden and shared how the country is dealing with the
elderly during the Coronavirus.
Swedish governments has a deadly policy when it comes to dealing with older
people in nursing homes or assisted living facilities that contract the
Coronavirus. Regardless of their condition, they are to be refused access to the
hospital for treatment and kept in their rooms until they die. The justification
is that they have lived most of their life and there is no reason to prolong it.
It is cheaper for the State to let them die in their rooms.
also a government decree that nursing homes and assisted living facilities
cannot allow family to visit patients. Thus, family members won’t know the
status of their loved ones until the government issues a death certificate. The
elderly can call and talk to people inside the institutions, but once they get
sick with the Coronavirus, they are refused access to a phone.
Swedish government has decreed that abortions are essential and these clinics
and hospitals can continue to freely murder babies, even though they have their
whole life in front of them. Most of elderly do not vote in Sweden and neither
do the babies.
Swedish government is proud of the fact that they are saving taxpayers’ money in
such a manner – all in the name of fiscal responsibility. This is the type of
socialism that Bernie Sanders has been espousing to the American people and the
millennials are only too happy they don’t want to spend money on sick old
people. It is ironic that Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are both in their late
70s, but they have no need for worry since they are rich enough to pay for their
own care. They also have access to an excellent health care system because they
are members of the Senate.
days of the Vikings, people in the Scandinavian countries also had an excellent
health care system for the elderly. When an old person got sick, he was taken to
a hill and placed inside a barrel with lots of long nails facing inward. The Ol’
Pop was stuffed inside and sent rolling down the hill, ostensibly going to
Valhalla, the Viking version of heaven. In this way, Ol’ Pop never became a
burden to the younger generation, who did not think about the day it would be
their turn to get into the barrel.
descendants of the Vikings are much more refined today as they put the old, sick
persons in soft beds, close the door to the room, and let them die in peace.
This “kinder treatment” is progress from the barrel times.
Sweden – regardless of age – who gets sick or has an accident, and the doctors
declare them too ill to live, is put into a special ward of the hospital. Nurses
are told to withhold food and water regardless what the patient says. A person
sent to this specialized ward will die within five days. I have personal
knowledge of this as some of my family members were placed in such a ward.
the great socialized medicine program whose goal is keep the cost down and save
the State money which can then be spent murdering babies at the abortion mills.
Some would say it’s too bad that Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden were not
eliminated by their mothers. Their lives on earth have been a total waste. The
taxpayers could have saved a lot of money that was spent on their vain programs
and political campaigns.
