Because I Don't Want How I Vote To Determine The Health Care I Receive

I have been working on a longer post on the subject of "socialism".  There has been a lot of talk about whether or not the U.S. is heading towards becoming a "socialist" nation.  Hopefully I will get that finished and posted soon.  [yeah, right - ed.]

In the meantime, I would like to point out one identifying behavior of socialist nations.  Specifically, that how you vote and the initiatives you support tend to determine how well you do in terms of receiving government largesse.

Gone is the principle that one should earn what they get.  Gone is the principle that we are all equal before the law and before our government.

Instead, government money and programs become skewed so that they favor the people that vote for the politicians that create and continue such initiatives.  Protesting such largesse makes you a target for retribution both politically and literally.

What does that have to do with the health care debate?
