in response to reader comment: The Joke of the Constitutional system in the United States

Submitted by Lafn (United States), Aug 22, 2007 at 17:41

The American Constitution never guarantees the right to healthcare. I prefer our system to any other, and if you want "free" healthcare, you must be willing to give up more of your hard-earned income while sacrificing quality of care. Move to Canada, or maybe Cuba. I choose quality healthcare. Did you notice that the parents of the quadruplets recently born in Montana are Canadian? Where will Americans go for healthcare when the system refuses them adequate services? Where will Canadians go? I've worked in healthcare, and can tell you there is a lot of waste and fraud among people who get it for "free".

A well educated nation understood that the alternative to GW Bush would have been a disaster for us--more appeasement of terrorists. John Kerry is an elitest who once tried to negotiate with our nations enemies. Is that why he opposes wiretaps on terrorists? Are he and Nancy Pelosi trying to carry on a backdoor foreign policy with those who would murder us? Pelosi should have not been allowed back into the country. What she did is treasonous! Those are NOT the types I want governing my country. So many politicians of all stripes support bigger government, while the majority of Americans want to be left alone to live their lives and support there families (not someone else's). Someone who lives irresponsibly has the least claims to the fruits of my labor! Got it? I give to charity, and charity should be the only social services that exist. As it is, organizations who profess beliefs anathema to my Constitution are given tax money; Thomas Jefferson called this tyranny! Let them help the poor instead of calling for the end to our market-based economy!

There is plenty still left of our constitution, and DO NOT be fooled; we will fight to keep it and restore it to the intention of the Founders!
