    Why does a person want to live in a socialist system? Why do they want more government control of their lives? Is it because they want handout's from the government? Do they wish to surrender their individual rights for a few scraps from the governments table of taxes? Open your eyes people just look at the new Healthcare Law, there are a lot of mandates in it, requirements to buy something that you may not need or want. Could it be that people are afraid of failure is that why they crave socialism?

    Will the hand-wringing never end? The US was the only first world nation without socialized medicine. I dunno if what we got in the health care bill qualifies as that, but it's a step. If there are weird things in the bill -- as seems to be the case -- hopefully in time, they can be removed.

    The answer is yes, I want to live in a nation where none of my neighbors are denied health care. I'm just as socialist as the average Canadian.

    You people need a new tune to play; this one is o-l-d.

    Simply because as long as we have a government we will have a degree of socialism. Our government provides police and fire protection, schools, roads, military....all socialist programs
    The question is not whether we should be socialist or not, but to what degree
    Some functions are better performed by the government than the private sector. Healthcare is one of them. The US has the most expensive healthcare system in the world. We pay more and get less. One of the reasons is we have ducked our responsibility to care for our people and passed it off to employers to provide as a "benny" to their employees.
    This benny used to be low cost and was widely available. With increasing healthcare costs, employers are dumping healtcare coverage in increasing numbers.
    It is another example of a program that is best provided by the government...the rest of the world has already figured this out

    I am very aware of what I am saying. I am not the one with the blinders on. I am not the one that goes into the defensive mode when the word soicalism is mentioned.
