A Look At Our Future?

Forget for a moment how you feel about the notion of socialized medicine. Let's just imagine, for a moment, that it happens.
Let's say that you or a loved one are unhappy with your new government health care plan. What do you do? Who do you call? To whom do you complain?
Well, if government runs it, it would seem that you would go to them, right? So basically, you would bring your complaint before your Congressional representative.
That would be the same group of Representatives and Senators who, this week, labeled the outraged opponents of socialized medicine as "Nazis carrying swastikas", "unruly mobs", "crazies", "Republican shills", and so forth.
This is the way your health care will work when government holds the power over it. Stop and think about that for a moment. Is this what the American people want? To be ignored when they act alone to change it, and to be demonized and villified when they organize to change it?
