I wish I could help these people.

Sometimes I think the funnest part of being a billionaire would be the option to help whoever needs it any time you want.

Musuko: Our American government now, is nothing like it was when it was first instituted. It has grown into a monster with it's tendrils into everyone`s daily lives.

This government wants everyone under it`s thumb in some way, they want people reliant on the government so they can control them. To these bureaucrats, anyone living independently of `the system` is considered dangerous and needs to be crushed.

"Are you an American living in Europe by chance? If no, then your talking out of your butt."

No, I'm a European living in Europe...you know, that part of the world that has a history of ACTUAL oppressive governments.

Which somewhat puts the "oppression" you`re suffering into perspective.

Incidentally, to COMPLETELY finish Godwining this thread: to everyone who has their flag up, talking about revolution and overthrowing the government, take a look at history and see what tends to happen shortly after such revolutions...at the extremes of government that usually form the replacement.

What`s remarkable about the American revolution, and the arguably enlightened government that followed, is that it was a freak deviation from the norm. Don`t rely on it being the expected outcome. Not when the Soviet Union and the Third Reich, among others, are in our history books.

"Obamacare will eventually be a single payer system"

The UK has a single payer system (we have a tax called "national insurance" that pays for, among other things, our healthcare system, state pensions and unemployment benefit)...

...yet you're still perfectly free to get private healthcare and insurance too.

So why do you assume it won`t be the same there?
