You know what? Free health care is
awesome! Of course it isn't free, but the way in which it is provided makes it feel like it.
Now one must consider, given all of the debate about health care going on down south, those five words that head this thread have got to be setting
off alarm bells on K Street.
Here, on a predominately American site, are a group of fairly intelligent people who tend to think outside of the box...and they are being exposed to
those five words: "Free Health Care is Awesome!!!", without the benefit of filtration through American media. No Glenn or Wolf to persuade them that
Canadians are beating down American doors to try to find adequate treatment that doesn't exist in their Pink Paradise. And that is a threat worth
literally billions of dollars.
Because, some of y'all simply aren't drinking the koolaide.
Which is why a number of us have been playing whack-a-mole with posters that pop up, provide the same list of right wing canards as their
fellows...dictates that are generated by like-minded folks (or employers) to convince Americans that they cannot have what most of the rest of us
do...and even so, they wouldn't like it very much.
Big Health would be foolish if it didn't, and luckily their source material is limited, so that when it hits the ATS bloodstream, it's pretty
recognisable as just more propaganda. But presented by new shills...sorry...ATS members.
You see it follows a pattern...thread is launched, whether intentionally provocative or not...these gadflies come out...cite lobbyists, right-wing
think tanks and biased sources...try to apply a Bravo Sierra-bludgeon to the issue of Universal Health Care...keep it up to the point of imbecility
(you can't know what you are experiencing because I read different on the net!).
And when they reach the point of total incredulity and catch on that they are doing their own cause more harm than good...gadflies disappear. For
Lotta one trick ponies out there.
Well, excuse my musings...but free health care is awesome, and anybody who says otherwise has his eyes on your wallet...not your health.
