<<This attitude (attitudes?) is the very reason why the poor stay poor in this country while the fat-cats keep their hands in our pockets -- robbing us blind while they claim they are "lowering our taxes". We are such fools - we think the only way the government robs us is through taxation. One day the people will wake up -- maybe. But I'm beginning to doubt it.


Personally, I much prefer the booms and depressions of capitalism to the protection from adversity offered by Jospeh Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Fidel Castro and Adolph Hitler.

But I understand your anxiety Angel May ---- you aren't able to deal with the stress of filing a claim to be compensated for your health insurance without risking a meltdown. I'm sure you prefer a system that would protect you from every little knock and shock. Of course, you give up a LOT of opportunity to get that protection, but I'm sure you take the many benefits of our economy for granted.
