If You Don't Like It, Move To Canada Or Something

More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly. ~Woody Allen

So with Scott Brown winning the election in Massachusetts, there seems to be a lot of despair in the world. I wonder why that is?

On one hand you have a society that is, obviously, unhappy with the way the country is going. So, they vote for a change, that change would be for the Congress (that would be both the House and the Senate) to go back to the drawing board and come up with a plan that will not only benefit the citizens of the United States, but also not bankrupt the country.

On the other hand, you have people complaining about how their children will never get medical insurance because of some pre-existing condition, or because of some fallacy that says there are anywhere from 12 million to 45 million people uninsured in this country that will die without medical insurance. Oh, and of that number there is anywhere from 8 to 30 million people that would benefit and not actually have to be citizens of this country.

That's a bunch of hooey!

First off, if we did have government provided health care guess which people are hurt the most, first. Yep, those special cases where there isn't a cure, so why should the government waste anymore tax dollars trying to cure an incurable disease. As opposed to the current system where there are thousands of doctors and scientists that are working on cures for everything from a common cold to pancreatic cancer.

Which would you rather have, a government run health care system that will exclude people that have, let's say pancreatic cancer, which is incurable. Or a free-market system that would allow scientists to work freely trying to find that cure?

Second, which country has better health care? Canada or the United States? England maybe? How about Australia? Here's a better question for you; which country has the best health care in the world? Which country do citizens from other countries come to for the best health care in the world?

The answer is easy, and it is the same. That would be the United States of America. And contrary to what President Obama says, we do have the absolute, hands-down, best health care in the world. Period. If you think I am wrong, please give me examples, so that I can be more educated on the system that you say is better than that of the United States.

Of course, you don't have to believe me, after all I am just a simple man with a simple blog. There is something that you can do though, if you don't like the system, you can move to a country whose system you do like.

Don't be surprised though, when come back to the good old U.S. of A.
