NHS to become centre of US battle of Collectivism vs. Individualism?

Just as I suggested last Saturday, Paul Ryan's nomination as running mate for the Republican Party, in the coming Presidential Elections, is likely to propel Obama into the White House for a second term thus creating complete economic collapse in the USA under the massive extra debt that will inevitably arise. Voters in the USA seem unlikely to voluntarily opt for reality.

President Obama yesterday, as reported in the Daily Telegraph this morning, could mishandle this scenario by focusing the public's attention on the true awfulness of socialised medecine by offering the Republicans the opportunity to use the example of the widely known failings of the NHS in their campaign. Note this passage from the linked report:

Writing in the Wall Street Journal in 2009, Mr Ryan said that universal healthcare made citizens "dependent" on the state and unwilling to back necessary cuts to government spending.

"We need only look to Great Britain and elsewhere to see the effects of socialized health care on the broader economy. Once a large number of citizens get their health care from the state, it dramatically alters their attachment to government," he said.

As the further evidence of the state of Britain's socialism inspired failings develop over the coming months, the rail fare rise this morning being but one example, it is possible that this could be a sufficiently stark warning for US voters that the Republican Presidential team could win through, particulalrly if that same socialism finally brings the euro to break-up before polling day, as now seems evermore likely!

The Looters and Moochers (as defined by Ayn Rand,) are rampant and run everything in Britain, further evidence of which was adequately provided in the State Controlled Displays in the Olympics opening and closing ceremonies, what a terrifying prospect for any typical free-thinking US elector!

The Slog report on a possible halt to building work on the new ECB HQ in Frankfurt, giving one further straw in that wind this morning.

In the UK is doesn't matter if you are a lord or a vagabond, if you need healthcare it will be provided free of charge by the finest medical staff in the world. It doesn't compromise democracy - it defines it, applauds it and makes it a model for the rest of the world to follow. Our NHS isn't perfect, but it's the mark of a civilised society and the Americans should take note as theirs is eroded daily by their distorted politics of greed and gain. I'm furious at Paul Ryan!! He's written into my blog tonight with an agony problem and I've torn a strip off him. Read it at www.clamidiablog.wordpress.com (adult humour). I'm not writing to plug my blog, I'm writing because I love our NHS and all it's hard working and brilliant staff. Clamidia Staines xx
