Take a Peek Inside the Socialist Mind

This is awesome. Fox Nation posted the video of Norm Dicks getting pwned by yours truly, and below is one of the comments from an oh-so educated and intellectual commie. It is very enlightening to get a glimpse of their logic.
Actually you have MORE freedom with universal healthcare. You don't need to worry about it, and you don't need to check with a bean counter at your HMO to have an appointment approved. Security, education and health care should be given by the state, when you have those three things, you have the freedom to do ANYTHING at all. When you have none, you are no longer free. republicans just don't get it, and seem to enjoy given large sums of money to insurance companies for horrible service. shrug.


  1. For a similar peek inside the socialist mind, get this:

    An acquaintance asserted that "No one should die because they cannot afford health care, and no one should go broke because they get sick." In response, I asked: "If we are to institute this sentiment as a government program, how are we to pay for it? And what is the cost to our liberties and to everything that depends on them?"

    His answer: "How will we pay for it? I'm not paying for it. Those who earn a lot more than I do will. What is the cost to liberties? People who are healthy have more liberties than those who are ailing, don't they?"

    I was shocked by how brazenly he asserted his right to spend other people's money.

  2. When I was in high school, I got into a debate about government-run health care with a British exchange student. When I said that someone still has to pay for it, he said it wasn't so. I asked where the money came from. "We tax imports and exports and things like that, I think," was his response.

    Now there are two very important things to notice about this. First, people want to believe in a free lunch and if they are ignorant enough, they will. Second, regular people of the Left (not politicians, academics, and the like), still have an aversion to stealing. Regular people have to believe in a free lunch to believe in socialism because they understand and oppose theft, they know in their gut it is morally wrong. It takes a lot of "education" and "experience" to unlearn the law that is written on the heart.

    Thus the danger is that people are ignorant enough to believe in a free lunch, the opportunity is that if we can show them that it isn't so, their moral instincts impel them towards freedom.
