    Thinking that government isn't in it to make money is naive. They are in it to take our money as a way to control our life.
    Not much to be said on this other then we'll have to agree to disagree since you know that you are right and I know that I am right.

    Being overtaxed isn't an opinion. It's a reality.

    How is it right to advocate government taking more control over your life decision?

    I've got many friends from Canada and almost everyone of them would disagree with you. True they pay more in taxes but get more for their money in return. If you have a heart attack, a cancer or other serious problem, you get immediate attention; if you want a nose job or liposuction or other non-emergency procedure then you may have to wait until they have an opening but either way when you are discharged from the hospital you don't get a bill to pay. My friends from Canada laugh about the American healthcare system when we discuss it and are amazed that a country of our size and wealth cannot guarantee healthcare for all of its citizens.
    Move to Canada. Take your socialism with you.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    The Supreme Court is the government.

    I would prefer that you socialists emigrate to Canada or Great Britain. You can have all the empty promises of free health care you can stand. And then you will die.

    So then why do Canadians come here to the US for treatment. Life saving treatment. Hip surgery is considered non emergency. Yet without it, one can't walk.
