America has the best health care system in the world.
But only for the privileged few and extremely wealthy.
How's that fair for the other 320 odd million souls?
Seem to me whats happening is America is coming to terms with the fact that she not the best in the world these days aside form maybe at obesity or at the number of citizens she incarcerates.
The goal is to do better and that can only happen if there is a measure of equality for all, and that's not socialism nor capitalism per-say but bloody common sense.

The postal service is one government service that we should really consider significantly reducing. I know our constitution calls for a postal service, but I really don't see the point of it nowadays (at least in it's current format).
90% of the mail we receive is junk mail. Probably 5% are actual bills... of which 95% of those we actually get online but still receive a paper copy.
I think congress should raise the cost of a stamp to at least $1.00 and curtail delivery to maybe 2 days a week. If someone wants daily delivery, they can pay for it themselves or pick it up at the post office.
