Mar 27th 2009 4:44PM I think at this point we have already established that Universal Health Care would benefit the US in the LONG RUN, not the short term which is what I feel most people seem to forget. Consider that our "Great" country is still ranked 37th in the world according to the WHO (World Health Organization, for those who don't know), but, do you know the reason why? The reasons are simple. Yes, we do have some of the best facilities in the world along with some of the best doctors in the world and some of the best health coverage for the WEALTHY. Keep that in mind. Because of the fact that these Corporate and Political fat cats can buy opinions and Nations, obviously they can make you think what they want you to think about any system that is against more profits for said Fat Cats.
Apparently, some, not all, of our citizens fail to see that the so-called "lazy, ignorant people" of our country decide not to get health care coverage because of that fact. Most of these people are people that have families and jobs that pay the lowest minimum wage in the World, and you can check me on this. We, the people (A line so many seem to forget, emphasis on WE here); WE the PEOPLE are told that it is "Uniquely American" to slave with three jobs and zero family time. WE the PEOPLE are told to chase a dream that is damn near impossible to acheive because of this system that has been established by the power elite of this country.
I am sick an tired of hearing about how aweful and darn near narcissistic the French are when they can manage to smoke more and drink more and have only one job and still live longer than the wealthiest american. But guess what? They think about WE the PEOPLE, not ME, the person bitching about helping my fellow man. So I guess in conclusion I should say that when we decide to stop knocking other countries for ideas and ideals that seem to work a HELL of a lot better than ours, We might become a country of WE, THE PEOPLE again and not ME AND MY FAT BANK ROLL.
Mar 27th 2009 3:05PM To you, my dear friend Ben. I am one of those leftist that will bring it on. The facts are real simple, my friend. We feed the lower class citizens of the US fake dreams of glamour and material wealth. I think what you need to do is PAY MORE ATTENTION to details instead of just going by what you see. The corporate controlled media feeds you lies and the corporate controlled news is pretty much the wrecking crew. So, the next time you want to complain about some dude rolling in some nice car with fresh duds on, ask him how far in debt he is because of our "Great System" as you so call it.
