I tend to spend more and more time

in a little country called Switzerland. The healthcare system there is not only quite effective but also quite desirable by the majority (if not practically all) of its citizens. Of course Switzerland has a purer form of government, a true direct democracy, where binding referendums and double majorities not only give people direct access to their government and its inner workings and policies, but also to prevent the possibility of "majority rule" so often elaborated by the "two wolves and a sheep" analogy. So, they "can" change what the do not like about their system.

To date, they have not changed this.

Another major advantage is that the Swiss do not suffer from the problems of lawsuits brought about by one's own lack of knowledge or general stupidity. If you go for an operation and are advised on the risks, then the risks are known and those risks are in your hands as they should be. If you stub your toe on your neighbors sidewalk, forget about any legal action against him. Its your problem.

The point of the matter is, that with liberty and independence comes the full embrace of one's responsibilities that come with THOSE TWO THINGS. The Swiss understand this and live it. We do not. They are fully accountable for themselves, while here in the states, people are not.

So can a universal healthcare system work and be effective and desirable? Yes, but it takes a mindset we do not have.

Am I arguing for or against? No, but GJ is hardly being honest if he thinks there are not countries where universal healthcare is not only effective, but also desirable by its people.

Sweet>>

video...I like Gary a lot. If Ron Aint on my ballot Gary is getting my vote...I'll be in Tampa in August fighting like hell for Paul..If we cant get Paul nominated, we need Gary in the debates. A vote for Gary IS NOT a vote against LIBERTY or RON PAUL!

Thank you

Well said patriot.
There is nothing wrong with supporting and working for both campaigns.
It's like having battle on two fronts against the same establishment.

First televized presidential debate will take place October 3rd -- let's work hard to get GJ in there so the message of liberty and peace can be heard by tens of millions.
Zogby said the other day that GJ could be the Ross Perot.
Gary is already polling very well in some states 12% in New Mexico 7% in Colorado 8% in Montana and 7% in NH.

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

I agree

I just seem to catch so much flak for even suggesting Gary. I dont get it. Gary has never said a negative word about Paul..they are of the same cloth. I look at it like this...and its a lil silly...but if my horse, at the end of the training season aint in the race...and all efforts to get him in have been exhausted....I gotta support another horse...And Paul has always siad, it is NOT about HIM, its about the cause of Liberty...can anyone argue that Gary would govern any different than Paul?

T.Rogers

True

GJ said the other day on Twitter that as president he would appoint to SCOTUS people like Judge Napolitano.
GJ's administration would be historic.
I'm thinking Dr. Paul as Secretary of Treasury -- that would be awesome.

indeed

I am sure GJ would have spot for Dr Paul...I'd rather see Paul as FED chair than anything.

T.Rogers

Good point

Dr. Ron Paul as FED chair.
Thomas E. Woods as Secreary of Treasury.
How about Secretary of State?
Carol Paul?
:) she surely would do a much better job than warmonger Hillary.

Hmmmmm

Secretary of State...Rand??

T.Rogers

He would lose his Senate seat

Lots of good people in the Liberty Movement to choose from.
My choice would be Karen Kwiatkowski.
