Opposing Voice

An Opposing Voice in a Sea of Distention

Sometimes to move 2 steps towards where we want to be, towards what might work better for ALL-most ALL of us, we have to drive 90 miles out of our way because there are roadblocks, pot holes, earthquakes, and idot drivers who cause accidents. Should we fund everyone's health insurance no! But! our current system is SPIT!

Currently in our system, we're paying an outrageous price to stay alive (and who is the end benifactor of that cost??? Are the those drug company, and hospital recipients even American?) and is "to stay alive" a fundamental right - Life!~ (liberty and the pursuit). My history tells me -YES! I'm all for a health care overhaul. Do I want to live like Socialist Russia or Red China - or course not. Besides, this country, most likely, won't go there because we're "happily" a 2 party system and in 2 years everything will be repealed anyway.

So why go there??? Maybe, just maybe - people will begin to question the current system and in the longrun SOME change that we can ALL-most ALL agree on WILL happen. P.S. I'm strongly against - drugs, drug companies, doctors who solve problems with drugs (or any other band aid -get them hooked on care- solution). I'm against a "solve the problem after the fact philosophy," I'm against letting people spend their lives at McDonald's and then expecting ME to pay to fix their heart. BUT!!! there has got to be some balance. We happily send aid to Timbuktu because they were hit by a hurricane - despite the fact that they live in a "Hurricanes WILL happen area - and they were living in poverty to begin with" yet we fight like heck when our local volunteer firefighter - with no benefits - needs health care help after he damaged his lungs when voluntarily pulling people from 911 ash, and now can no longer work because of his deteriorated health. Go figure.

I understand the argument "Why should I help immunize my out of work neighbor's children who is just having children to get a monthly gov. payment that will help them buy 20 cans of cat food and 2 packs of cigarettes - oh the cat food was for their children to eat???" Why should I help them? Oh because not helping them means I who was immunized and the immunity has worn off will be exposed?" Is it fair - NO@! But is if fair that a double income family working 2-3-4-5 jobs can't afford "preventative health care" to stay healthy so they can keep making money for the man. NO!

Where's the balance - What does it take to take 2 steps in the right direction - a direction that WILL work for All - most all of us....?????. Do I want to live like Socialist Russia or Red China - or course not. This country won't go there because in 2 years everything will be repealed anyway. So why go there??? Maybe just maybe - people will begin to question the current system and in the longrun SOME change that we can ALL-most all agree on WILL happen. P.S.

But there's got to be some balance. We happily send aid to Timbuktu because they were hit by a hurricane - despite the fact that they live in a "Hurricanes WILL happen area" yet we fight like heck when our local volunteer firefighter - with no benis - needs help from his pulling people from 911 ash. Go figure. I understand the argument "should I help immunize my out of work neighbor's children if not helping them means I who was immunized and the immunity has worn off will be exposed?"

Where's the balance - What does it take to go 2 steps in the right direction - a direction that WILL work for All-most ALL of us....????? What will it take to get you to question what we have? What will it take to get you to ACT, to get you to move us towards a better solution???

not only communist countries have a health care system that will serve all. When I was in Australia I was in an accident and was taken by ambulance to the hospital treated and let go. I was not charged for this visit I did not have travel insurance, I was not billed in any way. Communists are not the only country that takes care or the ill. This I need to state was in 1998 they have been doing it for awhile it is a possiblilty we do need to question the system and this is a good way to get the Fri...en insurance companies to get out and stop layering their pockets at our expense.
