Are we this mad?

It is far past time to nationalize healthcare.
The system we have now, sucks.
It sucks the life out of the economy.
It hurts small businesses more than large.
It is inefficient.
It is cruel.
And it is very profitable for a very few.
Aside from the mind numbingly hysterical acolytes of the failed ideology of neo conservatism, who doesn't get it?
It begs a philosophical question:
What is the role of Government?
Are we not the Government?
As a society, if we abdicate our role, it will be filled.
It already has been.
In effect, we get the government we deserve.
Voting is not enough.
An obligation of citizens is to be well informed.
It also helps to understand there are no easy solutions, but there are plenty of stupid ones.
Throwing money at a problem won't make it go away.
But if you follow the money, you'll find the folly.
You can quote me on that last one; I just made it up.
