2. belief in the freedom of individuals to do whatever dumb things they want, so long as they do not harm others.
1. A base level of care that at least stops people from proverbially or litterally dying in the streets. Since not all given this care can pay, the cost will be socialized (by other users of the hospital, gov't programs, or charity.)
2. A free market in insurance programs and health care service itself that allows for whatever level of care a consumer wants.
This is not so different from the system currently in place, with the giant, glaring exceptions of Medicare and Medicaid.

This is an outrage, a real good bunch of "Christians" and I use the term lightly. Their is nothing Christ like any of their actions. The Good Samaritan did NOT walk by the dying man lying in the street and tell him, "I am sorry it was your fiscal responsibility to take care of yourself, I must let you die. Maybe the church down the street will come by and save you". You know a "true" Christian by the fruits, and Let Him Die is not one of them.
Even worse still, not one of those candidates had the nerve to stand up and say, No that is not right. Why? I think they fear their own supporters. At least Mccain was brave enough to stand up when someone said Obama was not an Arab, now President Obama. They are going down a slippery slope, they want to do away with our separation of Church and State....BIG MISTAKE. Go back and read dark ages, Inquistions. It will happen again and it will be led with "Christians" in the fore front (again use that term lightly), they will be persecuting people of any different faith than the one they believe. This country was founded on Christianity, but most were running away from persecution, they knew there must be law so everyone can worship to their own conscience. And giving us the best thing for everyone, amendment with separation of Church and State. God Bless America, and God help us all if any of these candidates get in.
They did chant Let him die? Are u hard of hearing? Anyone one can hear them say that.
