One of the important aspects of being an American has to do with the freedoms we are afforded, our right to choose. I read on the Fox News website where presidential hopeful John Edwards would make his Universal Health Care mandatory for every man, woman and child.
“It requires that everybody be covered. It requires that everybody get preventive care,” he told a crowd sitting in lawn chairs in front of the Cedar County Courthouse. “If you are going to be in the system, you can’t choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK.” (emphasis added)
"The whole idea is a continuum of care, basically from birth to death," he said."
Did I just wake up from a hundred year nap; maybe I missed out on the meeting where American citizens gave up their decision making agency and turned it over to the government. From what I gathered in two simple paragraphs, about the only requirement I see is that we keep an eye on John Edwards and make sure he never gets elected and never has a chance to impose his socialism on the American people. Now, is there anyone else pushing the Universal Health Care package, anyone else we need to keep from destroying America’s most basic rights under the guise of protecting us from ourselves?
