mocktwinkie saidHe is 100% correct about the majority of Americans speaking against exactly what they love so much. That is why in order for conservatives to win elections they have to use wedge and fear issues and general speeches about big government without the majority of people understanding that trimming down government means trimming down safety net programs for creating more sustainability. If the majority of Americans understood this they would always vote liberal and America would certainly be doomed into complete fiscal insanity.
He is right though about the fact that too much of our spending goes into things that aren't giving the American people more quality of life. But that's kind of the price when we want to maintain our status as the military superpower of the world -- it requires a lot of spending which in turn supposedly protects us from those who want to destroy us.
But he overlooks the fact that socialized medicine programs can work in small some relatively homogeneous countries but that it cannot work in such a large heterogeneous country like America. Simultaneously, the European healthcare programs are moving unsustainability.
