The Thomas Jefferson quote in the cartoon above is one of the reasons that I devote a considerable amount of my free time to this blog. I see the internet as a fantastic way to amplify one's voice, and I believe that I have something to say that is important. Universal or single-payer healthcare is something that I am very much against, mainly because it would grant the federal government yet more control over our lives. I think the problem of healthcare, in a nutshell, stems from allowing government to insert itself into the private market where it doesn't belong. Free markets and free people have demonstrated countless times that they can solve the most intractable of problems, whereas I have yet to see our government solve a single problem in a manner that couldn't be handled more efficiently by the private sector. This is very important stuff, and we must speak out against it at every opportunity. The government has already distorted the healthcare industry way too much, and to do more would be worse than foolhardy. Let's stop the madness!
