    One of the greatest things the government enjoys is having bureaucracy. You might not like it but the people in the government do.

    I voted for everything to be run by the private sector because the government sucks and I know if I was allowed to protect myself I could better serve as my own police force than the current one.

    It should be up to the individual states if they want their own Universal Health care or not period. The federal government should stay out of it beyond making sure that bad drugs don't get let out to the public. This is of course my own personal opinion.

    And if California wants to do it then that's up to them. I don't live there so I don't really care.
