what are the strongest arguments against him being the president ? I would like to hear that from someone who doesn't support him.
Try this video
Or how about this link
He would like to Repeal Roe v. Wade
Also that he thinks that all of our Health Care problems will be solved by Free Market capitalism and 'Charity Hospitals' (That line of thought is
basically what's brought us to where we are now anyway!! LOL)
Even from a strictly financial view, switching to a "socialized" healthcare system would save an enormous amount of money...The US spends far more
of it's GDP on health care than any other Westernized nation even though most of the others have a much more 'socialized' health care system...
Not only that...but these 'socialized' healthcare systems are simply better at keeping people healthy! The OECD
ranked the US's health care quality
at 37.....while France and Italy are in the number 1 and 2 position respectively...
Or in this chart
where Canada ranks in the top ten (rated as grade
level of B while America ranks at level of 16 (Grade Level D)
