Welcome to the thoughts that wash up on the sandy beaches on my mind. Paddling is encouraged.. but watch out for the sharks.
hahaha... sigh.... no such prescription, i'm afraid...
...and it's a REALLY old cartoon too!
Heresy: all government health care is a scam! Radical solution: no government involvement in health care. Probable reaction: I will be accused of being a cold-hearted SOB!My reaction: Such is life.
Tim, I'd have to disagree with you 100%. I think that a Nation style Health Service is the sign of advanced civilisation - but then again I am a Socialist! It's one of the things I don't have a problem paying tax for. I am comforted by the idea that, as I grow older, that my health needs are already covered by my own contributions over the years and those of others.
I am a libertarian who champions personal responsibility. Government's role must be limited.The level of that limitation is negotiable.However, health care is not a governmental responsibility.The U.S. constitution does NOT provide for health care.That is my view of a libertarian society.We can agree to disagree.Onward!

Tim, I agree that governments role should be limited. We just disagree at which level this should be set. I believe that the general health of its citizens *is* most definitely a government responsibility. I believe that the role of government is to create the best conditions within its borders to allow its residents to flourish. To do this the state should provide a basic barrier - a safety net - below which people cannot fall. This includes basic health care. Where possible more than basic levels of care in all senses of the word should be provided for all - regardless of ability (or inability) to pay.
