    The Government is not just rich white men. It’s a group of thousands of Americans working to make our lives great. The problem with countries that their governments fail is when one or a small group of people seize most of the power and people below them try to get some and do almost anything to get it. Charging people outrageous sums of money to fix you is disgraceful. Yes, I believe doctors should benefit from their hard work. But when a a group of people create a system to keep people dumb by saying god will take care of you. You do not need to understand how your body works as a whole to keep you alive and how food effects its function and why exercise is important and what is the proper balance of chemicals in your body and which ones are bad for it. Saying it’s a free country and you do not need to learn these things. Sorry, there is not such thing as a free country. We are all kids even as adults learning everyday. Being required to learn about your body and it’s functions and investing in public health-care and education is not a bad thing. Not everyone takes advantage of the system and we should have things in place to weed them out and they can perform community service.

Slandering your neighbors, stop and frisk without probable cause, usury, bribery, corruption, debt slavery, infanticide, worshiping graven images, idolatry, discrimination, godlessness will become ashes under the feet of the righteous. ya hen urban America dies the debt slaves will be freed.

    LOL, the freedom you have in America is the freedom to be poor. The elimination of the middle class and the elimination of critical thinking in this nation has been part of a long project by corporations and the upper echelons to build an obedient, poor populace who cannot fight back. Its working, with reality TV, cheap junk food, the masses are quelled for now. Just like the Roman emperors quelled the masses with free food and drink with the gladiatorial games, our masses are quelled by cheap food and entertainment. That only works so long. Ask the French.

    To all those in other countries with healthcare. You guys don't get it America is run by big business. Healthcare is extremely profitable! There is no way in hell they will EVER allow national healthcare. Way too much money thrown at politicians by medical lobbyists. You need to be extremely wealthy to get elected in America, extremely wealthy! By the time all the lobbying groups all hand out cash every single person running in any and every election has favors to pay back. Its the American way, just how its done here as a fact. That's the ONLY reason America will NEVER have national healthcare.

Like what do you say to a guy who says please don't give me free healthcare because God gave me free healthcare already? Like at that point just give him the damn chainsaw to cut off his own diabetic toe. Apparently, he's good.

    Definition of social democracy 1 : a political movement advocating a gradual and peaceful transition from capitalism to socialism by democratic means 2 : a democratic welfare state that incorporates both capitalist and socialist practices Number 2 is what we are aiming towards.
