    Your fire department is socialized. Go down to the station and tell the guys there they do a terrible job.

    It's amazing the mental gymnastics conservatives will do so that they can avoid the truth that socialized medicine has already proven that it can out perform privatized medicine.

    I wonder what they'd say if someone told them there are nations with "socialized medicine" (using the conservative definition) that have shorter waiting times than the United States...

    If by "socialized medicine" you want local communities to be able to elect a "health chief" and subsidize a community health department... have at it. Nothing stopping you.

    Healthcare might be better for a homeless guy in England. But if I'm dying of an extremely rare disease or injury, I DEFINITELY want to be in America where I can pay a doctor to cure me, instead of in England where they'll just let me die.

    First of all my post was in response your ridiculous assertion that the UK is socialist. Any government/economy exists on a spectrum. Some economies have more governmental intervention than others, but that does not make them socialist. Even a "capitalist" economy like the US necessarily has many functions that are government-subsidized.

    As for the bolded part. You have any evidence to back that up? You don't think insurance companies in this country wouldn't let you die in order to make a buck? If you are suffering from a rare or degenerative disease in our healthcare system, the doctors are still required to treat you but if you can't afford the most advanced treatments then your days are still numbered.
