Yeah! Let government run it!
I believe that it's just a matter of time before we end up with some form of government-run health-care in this country. I also believe that it's a terrible idea, but that fact won't stop government from doing it. Too many people see it as another wonderful thing that government is going to "give" them for "free."
Too many people don't realize that government can't "give" you ANYTHING that it didn't take from somebody else first, and it ain't "free" when that happens. Besides--- "free" health care isn't worth a shit if you can't get it.
The human race is insane. We keep doing stupid things that blow up in our faces and expecting different results if we just try it one more time. Hell, we still have true-believer communists in this world, despite the fact that THAT system has failed miserably everywhere (and EVERY TIME) it's been tried.
We never learn.
yep. about 4000 years ago or so this dude named Moses gave the Isralites some laws to live by written in stone. The 10th of these laws was thou shalt not covet. And I don't think he was laying the law down to the ones who owned most of the sheep....
Wanting sumthin that belongs to somebody else has been the downfall of humans since Cain and Abel got into it over who got to burn the sheep. Those who don't have it because they made the wrong decisions in their life decide that those who do have it owe them just because they are part of society. The economies go bust but every one is equal--equally busted.
Two words: System Abuse.
We already have way too much of it from the ones who currently don't pay, which is why the system now sucks the way it does. At least having to take some financial responsibility tends to make people stop and use their brains first. Making it "free" for everyone.....geez let me change careers now. I don't think I wanna be a nurse anymore.....
Communism hasn't worked because the democrats haven't been in charge. They can make it work, just ask them. I see them screaming, as they're led to the head chopping block, damn I screwed up. Too late.
