State run health care is a complete disaster. Just look north to the Canadian cluster ph*ck. Danny Williams went to the US for his heart repair since he couldn't get it done quickly enough. The wait times are atrocious and finding sa doctor is near impossible. User pay system is NOT available here.
Socialism sucks @$$ big time my little friend.

I am proud to be an American. More importantly, I am proud to be born in a country that gives me so much freedom guarenteed by the Constitution. Please do not take away my freedoms because you feel bad for those who expect the government to take care of them.

It doesn't matter what people call it, socialism, communism, etc., nor how people define it.
This is the only thing people need to get through their heads: LEAVE ME THE HELL ALONE!!! Leave all those alone that don't want to play commie games with their lives.
Don't come around tell ME what I MUST do for you or someone else's benefit! PERIOD! That's it, it's that simple.
The day someone tells me that I must WORK for their benefit is the day I start FIGHTING BACK with whatever it takes to get them off my back. Failing that, I'll hurl myself off a cliff and take all the monkeys hanging on my back with me, ha!
Leave those alone that want to be left alone!!!
Really, it's that simple people. Leave those alone that don't want to play WHATEVER you want to call it or however you want to define it. Stay off our backs .. or else!
Gee, how much more simpler can it get. Those that want to play socialism should go play socialism among themselves and leave those that don't want to play that game alone!!! Heck, lets divide this country in half and the commies can go play their monkey games on one half and the rest of us can go mind our own damn business on our half.
Really, why don't you commies make socialism voluntary, hum? Don't be forcing YOUR ideologies down my throat .. or I'll shove mine up yours!

I'm against any kind of mandatory socialist scheme for one simple basic reason: it's immoral! And if it's immoral, it's got to be a sin.
So .. count me OUT! Enslaving others to do what they don't want to do for the benefit of another (particularly under mandatory conditions) is something I would also think all them religious people should be totally against. Certainly enslaving others to do stuff for you and to fulfill your desires must be a sin and a sure path to hell. Right? Or is slavery now vogue again? Someone check the dogma, we may now no longer be a nation under god, ha .. not unless god endorses slavery.
Help us, jebus, help us. I think we need a new president, one that will enact another emancipation proclamation to save us from the enslaving ones !!!
