This is not a political blog, but the issues that Ramsey talks about on this video are definitely political issues. My challenge is for you to research the presidential candidates before you vote in a year. Make sure that you choose a candidate that not only agrees with your foreign policy and selsocial views, but also your financial views. The idea of socialism, at its core, does not work and it only benefits the less hard working individuals in society. The idea of working hard to make something for yourself is why this country’s economy has thrived over the past 200 plus years. That’s not to say that the mentally ill and physically disabled should be left to fend for themselves, but there are plenty of other socialized systems in place that drain the congressional budget every year.
Clinton, Obama, and Edwards all support socializing the health care system. The idea of “everyone gets health care” sounds like such a great idea, but the negative implications of the government taking over our health care system are enormous. The Canadian and British health care systems are a mess. You have to be put on waiting lists to see doctors and the quality of care is seriously lacking, because doctors have no incentive to perform above average. There is a reason why so many people travle to the United States to receive our health care. Because even though we have problems with health insurance and children not receiving health care, it’s still the best care you can receive in the world.
Think, research, and make an informed decision when you choose a candidate to support this coming election year.
