The thread closed and I didn't get to respond . Anywho, what private and government healthcare share is they aren't intended to provide care for everyone per se. Its a pool of money for the smaller percentage of people that may need care. Its varies, but this why countries with socialized healthcare run into the problem of long waits, there just isn't enough money to care for everybody efficiently.
I'm not necessarily opposed to government providing services for people in rural areas. But is that a good use of our tax money? Taking care of people who want to live in the middle of nowhere? I'll just say it depends.
I'm suggesting somebody who is gung ho about government playing a big role in our lives should have some examples of that being good, successful, and efficient. Its more like an argument of why do we keep giving them more power when they suck at what they do?
Well... the US does send a lot of federal aid to Mexico even though its a relatively rich country thanks to the US.
Do you ever miss it to talk to people who are at least somewhat as intelligent as you are?
You have yet to thank me for making your life better.

NightlyPoe said: 2-2. I would be interested to know what judges in "higher circles", whatever that means, believes that literally zero people in the United States cast a personal fraudulent ballot in the past decade. Are you suggesting that "voting fraud is a myth" is just something the plebs believe? I don't understand why you're trying to drill this down. I'm...

Even one or two examples will help if you don't remember everything. Here's one. Acceptable IDs were "driver licenses, special ID cards, passports, veteran identification cards,...

And if they were passing laws mandating everyone must hose down their trash cans in case they were at risk of catching fire, while doing nothing about electrical problems that caused several known house fires? I'm talking about priorities and enforcement costs here. Again, there are already laws in place about the kind...

Hobbies: Reading, gaming, boardgaming, in that order. Yeah, I said it. Also anime and movies. Books, anime, and movies are mostly science fiction.
About Me: Start date: the 6th of July, 2007.
I'm partial to Nintendo but I go where the games are. I play computer games, but only a few that aren't made by Blizzard. I love to read books, particularly science fiction, and to play board games such as Axis & Allies, Civilization (original Avalon Hill, not Sid Meier!), Empire Builder games (like Eurorails), and, yes, Monopoly.
Gaming History: Got an NES at age 6, and loved it. I also got every Nintendo system that came out other than Virtual Boy. Got a Genesis and Sega CD -- it rocks, and Sonic CD is the best Sonic! -- as well as a Game Gear, but was only vaguely aware that the Saturn existed. Got a Playstation and N64 at the same time. (Played the N64 more.) Never got an Xbox or PS2, though I did get to play through Halo and Halo 2 on Hard mode. Part of the reason was that I got seriously into StarCraft and Diablo II. Later it was various Internet timewasters (not porn or stupid Flash games, though!)
Relatively recently: Got a used Dreamcast in 2005 (what a sad, beautiful swan song for Sega). Got a DS (and then a DS Lite). Got a 360 in 2005. (Ebay! Got another.) Preordered my Wii. Got a PS3 in December 2006. (I used it mostly to play PS2 games for the first year.) Got myself a PSP for Christmas 2007. I don't like having to pay for Xobx Live, so I don't.
