I believe you are wrong in that aspect. He is not advocating death panels or anything of that nature. What he is stating is that people have to take
personal responsiblity for their actions and their health.
Let me give you a scenerio: You live in an apartment building, and have neighbors all around, this is possible for many of us, as they do happen.
Now the one person way down at the end of the hall is doing something bad and illegale, that too is very plausible. Now is it right that all of the
people be punished for the actions of the one individual who broke the law?
Now if a person decides to eat at fast food resteraunt for 3 meals a day, 7 days a week for years, why should the rest of us be denied the right to
visit that place? That is what the point is, the government is trying to regulate what we eat and how we live. They are right now on a kick of
stating that people are too overweight and not looking at the bigger picture as to help the people. The cheap simple solution is to simply ban the
junk food, punishing all of the people. The other part of that clip that you did not play, is where he got into how they tried this once before, and
did it with Prohibition, the banning of alcohole, only to end up repealing it several years later, when it became apparent that it was only causing
more problems than what it was to solve.
Health care has to start with the person, if you want to have a healthier society, then people have to care about their health. You can not regulate
how a person will live or what they will eat or drink. It has to be a personal choice, and for the government to get involved is just wrong on that
aspect. The healthy food that the government advocates is not cheap or easy to get. So here is the problem, they ban fast food, and people who rely
on such will find a way to get such.
