There is a plethora of data to back it up. Look at the debt figure of most of the "civilized" world that offers these social safety nets.

Not a fan of him either, but his explanation was solid.

Austrian economics is just devolution. It's the same with most of everything Ron Paul believes.

"Hey, let's not use statistics or empirical evidence to solve problems. We'll just go with our guts."

Ron Paul and all of his zombies believe shit because it sounds good without much evidence to back it up. It's the other side of what happened with communism.

"Hey this shit sounds good. It works on paper. Let's try it out!"

Too bad the paper they read it on isn't worth wiping one's ass with.


It's actually a recognition of what HAS happened in the past repeatedly. It is the ability to see a trend that is longer than 1 or 2 years.

The paper that is not worth using as toilet paper is Keynesian fiat currency.

Well, the least a caring society can do is provide healthcare to its poor.

It appears government run healthcare is indeed "the least a caring society can do."

You know, I'd be interested in hearing the details of how all this works in countries like Canada, Britain, or say Sweden. Not a comparison mind you, but the nuts and bolts of going from being in the health service to going to see your doctor.

No deductibles, no networks, no insurance-company phone games. You go to a doctor, an urgent care clinic, or a hospital, and you show a health-care card and you are treated. And there's no billing.

You are taxed heavier, but then you are not paying hundreds of dollars a month for insurance. The U.S. system is completely stupid. I really hope that Obamacare morphs, over time, into a single-payer system. I hate the heath insurance system here.

Obamacare IS "completely stupid", but instead of pining for a greater loss of liberty through theft, I hope for this system to be corrected before it crushes itself, and replaced by a sensible, deregulated, market based solution.
