Confessions Of A Male Nurse

This Doctor Makes Sense

So I’ve been hearing this whole debate about the new healthcare reform, especially at work, but it seemed to me that no one has been able to really come up with a good reason to defend their sides.  I, as a nurse, am a  patient advocate, so I do want my patients covered and get the best treatment money can buy.  At the same time, money doesn’t grow on trees, you don’t pick money off the branches, people work for it because money is a medium of exchange.

What bothers me, though, is that none of the politicians make sense.  The democrats want to cover everybody at the cost of what?  Trillions of dollars to be paid to beurocrats? Republicans want to stop the spending for what? So they can spend on their wars abroad to kill people?  This guy, Ron Paul though, makes sense:

Maybe our politicians should remember the warnings of Isabel Paterson:

“Most of the harm in the world is done by good people, and not by accident, lapse, or omission. It is the result of their deliberate actions, long persevered in, which they hold to be motivated by high ideals toward virtuous ends… …when millions are slaughtered, when torture is practiced, starvation enforced, oppression made a policy, as at present over a large part of the world, and as it has often been in the past, it must be at the behest of very many good people, and even by their direct action, for what they consider a worthy object.” (The God of the Machine)
