Wow...Liberal Garbage


This movie was made PURELY to scare people into changing health care. While I agree that health care needs to be tweaked and modernized (so it's not the complicated, expensive mess it is), this movie isn't even based on realistic problems with health care! Obama wants change...but he doesn't even know what the heck he's changing. The reform the democrats want has absolutely nothing to do with the real problems with health care and this movie is another example of how mistaken the democrats are about it. Here is a TIMES article explaining how unrealistic the basis for this movie is...

Man, you are so misinformed.

Wrong! This movie was made to inform their audiences into thinking about free universal healthcare. I do not know how you missed the repeated message of Denzel Washington's lines: "SICK!" "HELP!" If someone is sick, they need help. That is a right. Regardless of whether you are rich or poor. You get the same high quality healthcare. How can you not see this in a movie? And seriously dude, quit showing unconditional loyalty to conservative ideologies that try to constantly demonize the word liberal. Read an unbiased book like the dictionary. When you look up liberal in the dictionary, it is a very positive political view.

Yes, the film actually gets audiences to think of realistic solutions. The reason why you do not think it's realistic is because you are constantly exposed to American politics and opinion from corporate media that it is not a doable thing when other countries like Australia and Britain were able to do it. How do you explain that? All we need is a single payer universal healthcare system. It can be done.

I do not know if you realize this, but both the Republican side and Democratic side are WRONG. So, when it comes to the lives and prosperity of all people (including the poor and oppressed 50% of our population our leaders are constantly ignoring), the Republicans and Democrats do not give a damn about any of us. There is no two sides of an argument. The world is more complex than this. This movie's bases is not a Democratic Party solution. It is not a Republican party solution. It is a humanitarian solution. A Green Party Solution. A liberal and progressive solution. And I am talking TRUE liberalism and progressivism. Not the constant demonization of the word liberal, socialist, progressive and communist found in almost every conservative radio idiot host.

"All we need is a single payer universal healthcare system. It can be done."

Not all people in countries like Australia, UK or Sweden agree that the gov provides "high quality healthcare".

Maybe if they increase the taxes a little more, the quality will improve... But some people will still unsatisfied.

Then another tax raise... No, still not "high quality" to everyone.

Moral: If you give something for free, it´s impossible to have everyone satisfied. Basic Human Nature.
