Democrat or Dictator? Government Healthcare [Updated]

It's gotten so that you can't tell a Democrat from a socialist dictator. It's class warfare, and if you can afford something that someone else cannot, well, that's not fair! The Democrats/Dictators will change medicine to where you will have no personal options and must obtain health care wherever the government tells you--if not today, then tomorrow. It's only fair.

Chávez threatens private healthcare

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- President Hugo Chávez said Tuesday his government will nationalize Venezuela's privately owned hospitals and clinics if they fail to reduce healthcare costs. ''If the owners of the private clinics don't want to obey the laws, then the private clinics will be nationalized,'' Chávez said in a nationally televised speech.

Venezuela has a two-tiered health system in which wealthier, insured patients often can afford prompter, better treatment at private hospitals.

''This is the evil of capitalism,'' Chávez said of the healthcare costs at private clinics. ``We have to regulate this progressively, transforming the savage capitalist market into a market of solidarity.''

Chávez has expanded the public-health system, building new clinics and refurbishing hospitals, but many public hospitals lack basic medical supplies and sufficient personnel. He has also sent thousands of Cuban and Venezuelan doctors to live in poor neighborhoods, where they provide free care.

Looking forward to having Hillary Clinton as President?


Here's a good article by John Stossel on the subject of government dictated health care:

Live and Let Live(Selections)

Increasingly, it seems that the biggest difference between conservatives and "liberals" is that the conservatives know government is force.

Michael Moore may not have thought about it, but there are only two ways to get people to do things: force or persuasion. Government is all about force. Government has nothing it hasn't first expropriated from some productive person.

In contrast, the private sector -- whether nonprofit or a greedy business -- must work through persuasion and consent.

Live and let live" used to be a noble approach to life. Now you're considered compassionate if you demand that government impose your preferences on others.

My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings,
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

-excerpted from Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Ozymandius, Hugo Chavez, the names change, but the megalomania remains the same...and also the outcome
