Socialized Healthcare Fails

If you follow International news, you know that the U.K. has had to suggest privatizing at least parts of their health care system.. Canada's universal health care system is also in trouble, and many are insisting privatization is the only way to fix it.

You don't have to leave the U.S. to see socialized medicine fail, however. Here's a story about Hawaii dropping its failing universal child health care system after just 7 months.

Do you really want your health care in the hands of the people who run the DMV? The people who couldn't even run their own food service department? The people in charge of Walter Reed Army Medical Center?

This is America. When the founders formed this nation, they came up with an unprecedented system based on the best ideas of governance they either found in history or painstakingly developed.

Why in the world would this great country adopt on a national level a system that is failing in Canada, the UK and Hawaii?

History demonstrates Socialism doesn't work. In case people have forgotten the lessons of the U.S.S.R, we have only to look to socialized medicine to demonstrate that fact. As the wealthiest nation on earth, we should take care of everyone, and as the most innovative nation on earth, we can come up with a better solution than copying other people's failing systems.
