    This is the "dark side" of the so-called american individualism.

    It mostly just tough talk generally from people whose life experience is rather limited.

    There's a lot of that BS going on.

    Usually it's little boy and chickenhawks who talk about how hard thing ought to be.

    How does one die just because they are uninsured?

    It seems you miss the point. The point being the crowd cheered. We all know that ill and injured receive immediate care at emergency rooms, at an enormous cost to local government.

    Maybe these bleeding heart stories could be turned into a reality show. At least the surviving families could be paid in healthcare insurance.

    Oh stop with the melodramatic indignation please. It is readily observable, that while some ONE in the audience yelled yes, Paul said no. His point was that it is not the role of government to ensure people a risk free existence.

    And all this time I thought neo-cons were shameless. I think you've grown!
