Just got to love American propaganda and how sheep like Americans have really become. People will believe damn near anything they read or just not think about what they read and take it as the truth, because that’s how we are raised.. Believe what you are told..do what you are told.. and just follow in your neighbors footsteps.
So I get this Email from a friend that’s bitching to Americans that we can’t trust the Government with them running a national health care system and bring up some “facts” about other government run systems:
“The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke. ”
It would still be working if you didn’t like a little thing called the Internet.
“Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke. ”
Well it did work for a few years. Problem is that the expected benefit level, length of time to get Social Security benefits, and the cost of living has risen WAY above the taxes you pay.
“Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke. ”
“Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke. ”
Because people don’t want to pay their bills.
“War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is taken each year, transferred to “the poor” and they only want more. ”
Because people are lazy and like things to be handed to them; most poor people aren’t they way out of choice.
“Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.”
Well it did work for a few years. Problem is that the medical bills have risen WAY above the taxes you pay.
“The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.”
Because people like their SUV’s, new car models every year, plastic toys, Internet, and IPods.
“You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars and you have failed for allowing it. AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARESYSTEM??”
No WE have failed. We have failed the Government and we have failed each other. We can’t run our own life’s, we expect to be spoon feed and for someone else to tell us what to do. We throw temper tantrums when the government asks for more money to pay for the programs we use.
There is a bigger problem here and no one really see’s it.
