Thomas Jefferson said that, "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have."
Exactly, hello . . . anyone, anyone? It just makes me crazy that we think the government can do everything for us. I am not saying that the government is evil or bad, but what about personal responsibility? Socialized medicine is not the answer. There are many stories of people waiting months and months for routine medical care in a socialized country. Taxes are at 50 percent or more in some countries to provide this care. What is the incentive to provide better care when the government pays you anyway?
What I would like to know is if it you want to live in a country with socialized medicine, why do you not move there? I will help pack boxes and even chip in for the moving truck. I can even print out the words to "Oh, Canada" to help you start to memorize your new national anthem - was that too sarcastic? Sorry, my point is exactly what Thomas Jefferson said. Here it is again:
"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have." -Thomas Jefferson
