uncle dude - I'd probably follow many of your recommendations. But not this one! I'd rather use my time wisely with a couple extra hours on MYFASTGTI.COM instead of watching that move.uncle dude said:
I understand, but I think you should pinch your nose and watch it. I would like to know, from your point of view, if it is accurate. I can speak to the issues north of the border.

In Canada the federal government is in charge of health care, and I wouldn't want it any other way. It is the ONE topic in this country that is non partisan. Both the left and right agree that universal health care is the number one priority for Canadians. Is it perfect? Of course not. But when you are sick, no matter what the disease, you are treated no questions asked. Of course we pay more tax for the benefit, but it saves you worrying about money in times of crisis. Doesn't your government run the police force, army, education system, resource management, and the judicial system? What if all those were for profit? It seems to me health care is the only major institution that your government doesn't take care of.....? Maybe I am wrong.Michael Moore made the movie, so I'm sure it's not accurate. But I do recognize that others may feel differently. Maybe I'll watch it sometime so my argument would be more credible. There's lots of reasons why I don't want government healthcare. One is that I don't want the government to be responsible for (and eventually have authority over) my health. It amazes me that people would actually choose to let the government take control of their health. They don't do a very good job with most other programs. Why do people think things would be different with healthcare? Why would people state that the federal government did a lousy job in the wake of Katrina and in the next breath request that same government to take over their health?
P.S. I sure hope you started this thread in the right section so that Dragon or Gunny don't punish us for carrying on this conversation.
