I'm still trying to get a handle on this socialism aspect of the
presidential campaign of 2008.
One of the important conditions I am thinking about is that many
European countries have superior stats on various quality-of-life
factors. Canada, of course, has a superior health care system,
regardless of the BS fed the media by certain political minions. My
stepson and his wife and grandsons live in the Toronto area. I get
facts, not BS. They tell me, yes, their taxes are higher than ours but
they do not want our inferior health care system. Lots of Americans
going up there. Lots of Americans going to India for operations. We
can do better.
I am thinking that we have been brain washed to believe that socialism
is bad because it is perceived by conservatives to be bad for big
business. I think big business is overlooking a good thing. Bill Gates
is the author of a big article in a recent Time Magazine about how
business can do better if it adopts a social care agenda, that it is
in fact a win-win deal.
