I agree with about 99% of what my fellow Sowell-ites are saying here, however I would like to add one more thing in regards to the argument about WHY healthcare costs so much. Since we all agree on what insurance is and how it works then one can only come to one conclusion on how to reduce the total cost of healthcare in this country. REDUCE THE HEALTH BURDEN! No matter how much competition thier is on the insurance side until we reduce the total number of claims it will never come down. The one thing the government could do to really help reduce the health burden is to educate people on better lifestyles and proper nutrition and exercise. America has become one of the fattest, unhealthy nations in the world because of bad lifestyles.

Don't be so self defeated. Look at what our Founding fathers had to overcome to start this great nation. None thought they could pull it off. Even some of them regaled they didn't think it would happen, but they were willing to risk everything to create the greatest experiment ever, where Freedom & Liberty of the individual trumped the State. The people will wake up. The bear has been poked and is awakened. The lame stream media is in the bag for Obama, but the people still suffer everyday. Romney's message is starting to resonate regardless of what the media says. They said Reagan would not win and he crushed Carter. That can happen here too!

No one person (Obama included) is our only hope. Your words are the same words that people like Castro, Mau, Lenin and Stalin used to bamboozle the folks just before they killed hundreds of millions. No other ideology is the history of humanity has enslaved, tortured and killed more innocent people than Communism, socialism and Marxism, all in the name of creating a fairer society. Promise of a Utopian society is the bait that Progressives use to attempt to lure the masses to thier demise, enslavement and in many cases death (if you refuse to comply). Their is NO evidence that any innovation or improvement of the human condition ever came from a Communist society.

If Mitt Romney was smart once he gets the official nomination for the RNC, he needs to appoint both Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams to his Senior Economic Advisory Board or even Cabinet positions. Then I would march them out in front of the cameras to debate the left wing surrogates of Obama. Not only are the highly capable but it would demonstrate to the electorate that he is willing to put minorities at the top of the list of people to help run his government. . . . . And what a great job they would do!!!!

If it was sarcasm then he or she won't be insulted by my comments . . . . . of they really meant what they said they need to pack up and get the hell out of America. The America I love and would die for, not some socialistic utopian society that the Left Wing Do-gooders think they can turn it into. They all need to leave NOW!

If Big government is so great my friend then why don't you move to China, Russia or Venezuela where BIG governemnt runs everything all the time? If your America is not utopian enough and your looking for a Big government utopian society then I recommend you run as fast as you can to those societies that embrace big government as the solution to every problem a society has. Just remember . . . . . the government produces nothing, but ONLY takes and consumes what We the people produce as wealth and then gives it to others who THEY (not us) deem fit to get it. In the end, all socities that have taken that tack have ultimately collapsed (ie - open your eyes and witness the dissinegration of the European Union. How's that working out?
