When the Government has a monopoly on health care insurance it will have all of our health records and will make the life or death financial decisions about our health care currently being made by objective 3rd parties and trusted health care professionals abiding by the Hippocratic Oath.
Will we one day see One Pay health care boards decide not to pay for certain peoples to get certain procedures based on political reasons?
You'd like to think not.
But we also would have liked to have thought not in the case of the IRS targeting certain groups, individuals and businesses because of political affiliations as a means of intimidation and strong arming the partisan opposition.
Woe is us the day single pay becomes the reality.

The Virtuous Bigot - Political Islam
The Virtuous Bigot
Aug 17 2011 | by Bill Warner
We have a new kind of bigot today, the virtuous bigot. You can find a virtuous bigot by reading the writings of just about any apologist for Islam. It seems that it almost impossible for an apologist to resist proving the point of the beauty of Islam, by saying that those who find fault in Islam are bigots, racists, haters, and Islamophobes.
All of those who use fact-based arguments against Islam or reveal the enormous suffering caused by Islam are attacked by being called members of the KKK and worse. Any criticism of Islam is treated as hate speech.
Actually, the real meaning of “bigot” is someone who opposes the social and racial policies of the establishment. It just means: “we-hate-you”. “Bigot” has lost its moral meaning.
In a normal situation the answer would be no, but since he had to succeed the worst president in World history, its a definite yes. Compared to bush he looks like a great president.
bears, bulls, white sox fan 4 life!!!
Great Presidents aren't always successful in everything they do but they can be, with their personality and determination, the driving force behind important accomplishments.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
