    Not to mention most of those countries eat a better diet than we do.

    Because these "universal health care" nations limit health care or waiting lists prevent visits. That's how they ration. Then, if they do allow private health care, it isn't counted towards the over all health care costs used to deride the US for not taking the right to life away from their citizens.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    The French and Italians eat a healthier diet? Really? Ever hear of the French paradox? Ever hear Italian food described as a "heart attack on a plate"?

    But, what we need to do is listen to people who live in the countries that have universal care. I know that there are some on this board. Anyone from Canada, Australia, the UK, or anywhere else with UHC wanting to trade your system for ours? Anyone? Go ahead, respond to the post and tell us just how anxious you are to dump UHC for a US style of health care system.

    Americanized Italian food maybe, but not only do we eat crap, we eat a lot more of it.

    Why should I care if someone else wants to keep their UHC system.
    I don't want it, why isn't my opinion on if I want it or not more valid.

    I would not trade my system for UHC, period.
    It's not right to force me to do so, because most people here that want it, don't know jack crap about how it's run.

    Let's wait and see what people who actually have experience with UHC have to say.

    Why does it matter though?
    I'm not asking them to change how they receive medical care, others are telling me I need to change the way I receive mine.

    What does that have to do with our having a poorer rated health care system?

    They serve more of their people than our system does. That's one of the ways they rate better!

    Let me ask you this, if the government said you have the right to speak out politically, but only through one of our sponsored websites...would you have the right to free speech?

    Because people tend to lump, solely medical related problems with personal life style problems and call it "poorer rated health care system."

    Fat people don't get fat because they have ****ty medical care, they get fat because they eat to much food, but their problems from being to fat, are medical in nature.
