My family of five doesn't have health insurance, and we don't plan to purchase any. Instead of turning to medical care, we live healthfully.

There is so much evidence that we create our reality with our thoughts, feelings and beliefs.

This new legislation compels people to live in fear of disease or accidents, and to become dependent on outside resources. My family and I believe that when we have a sickness, it stems from a disharmony between our minds and bodies. When we work out the problem, the illness dissolves.

No one in my family has has ever had to go the emergency room. Our belief system is that if you know who you are, you won't even need ER visits. I'm hoping the outcome of all this debate is that people will realize they have power over their health.
