    Just saw this and must say, I'm blown away. I thought nationalized health care was a 'given' from all I've read in the MSM:

    The American people aren't half as stupid as the liberals would like to believe.

    Some of them are. Can you ever say something without a liberal slur?

    I wonder if they talked to any of the 50 million who have no health care?

    Americans are probably shielded from the truth about health care in other countries. The vested corporate interests don't want you to know how it's successfully done elsewhere.

    But I'm not a vested corporate interest and because I think you should know how things can work I'll provide this link:

    http://www.medicareaustralia.gov.au/

    and this link if you're not able to click through on the site:

    http://www.medicareaustralia.gov.au/about/index.shtml

    And it's not perfect, it needs tuning but as a system it works pretty well.

    You couldn't possibly have typed that first sentence.:lol:

    Roughly 50 million have no health care INSURANCE. They STILL get health care. It's illegal to deny it to them.

    Guess who foots THAT bill? Those who have insurance. The socialist portion of our government just wants to get their mitts into the money currently going to pay for insurance and redistribute it as they see fit.

    Which means they'll bleed us for even more taxes and our health care insurance will go up anyway.

    Those are interesting stats. Universal healthcare is just another avenue for govt to collect money. Give, give, give and get nothing in return. What's next with these people? Socialized housing? Socialized food? 10 hour work weeks? When are we ever going to realize that govt isn't the answer to EVERYTHING?

    Waahhhh! People don't have health care....waahhh. Whose fault is that? All the lazy bum whiners gotta do is buy health insurance. Wow. What a concept. But no, the productive people in our country are supposed to pay for the bums. God I hate the libs. Thank God our next President will be John McCain, a genuine war hero like our current President, who believes in fighting them over there instead of here, at any cost. Our next President also favors more prisons to house the criminal ingrates in our society, and he backs cutting education, which is a liberal socialist giveaway of our tax dollars. Drown the socialist government in the bath tub.

    Yeah cuz it's SO much better when leeches like you get to suck off my sweat, blood and tax dollars because you won't get your ass out and do what it takes to EARN (you can find the definition for that word at www.dictionary.com) what you have.

    Corporate propaganda is very powerful in America. As a nation information is managed by conservative MSM to give the impression the cure is worse than the cold. In a consumer society ads control likes and dislikes, the 40 million uninsured have no way to express their desires, power resides in money.
