Only the Best for the American People

I am so sick of all the lame excuses the conservative side tries to throw into the debate about a new national healthcare system. I don't see the connection to socialism they so often drop throughout the discussion. After all they are the ones who repeatedly state that their ideas are the best for the american people. In fact everything is about the American people. Not only do they justify the wars overseas as well as torture by the American government but they claim that the methods are necessary for the safety of the American people. Well, let me ask you this: How come you consider Al-Quaida with their lunatic ideas a threat to America that could eventually cause a great number of deaths on American soil? But when it comes to deadly viruses and terminal diseases that destroy family lives and sickens Amercian society you think that tax dollars are better spent in new military equipment.
Isn't HEALTH considered to be in the interest of Americans as well as other safety issues? Then why exactly do you feel it's everyones own responsibility to take care of that? How about we let every citizen fight against Al-Qaida individually and stop caring about the greater good that needs to be protected by the state? Isn't the sacrifice of young soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan for the saftey of all the George Bushs, Dick Cheneys and Rush Limbaughs of this country a little bit socialistic as well?
Maybe, maybe not. The important thing is that this nation is made of one society and only functions as ONE. We can't just throw out the sick, otherwise we become part of a sick system which eventually will infect everyone.
I bet that's a socialistic thought as well, isn't it? It's not socialistic it's called FAIRNESS.
