from Mary J Ruwart Ph.D.
 
When we try to bend others to our will forcibly, we usually get something very different than what we desire. Using physical force against peaceful people generates unintended consequences as they resist the choices that we make for them. Prohibition of drugs, meant to save lives, doubled the homicide rate, poisoned more people with adulterated drugs than would otherwise have died from the drugs themselves, resulted in innocents killed in turf wars, became the primary vector for the spread of AIDS, and brought pushers into our schools. Countries that have decriminalized drugs have seen violent crime plummet, overdose deaths decrease, the spread of AIDS decline, and drug use among minors fall. Sometimes less is more, especially when we are trying to bend peaceful others to our will.

A must read article if you really want to understand the mess we call healthcare in America.

"Unfortunately, while access to health insurance has largely dominated the political debate, the real disease plaguing American medicine is its 100-year descent into government control. After all, the reason health insurance has become so indispensable is that providing healthcare has become so expensive. There are many reasons for this, most of which are a direct consequence of government intervention."

Healthcare reform is back in the news as the Republican House and Senate have begun the process of repealing the Affordable Care Act.

Exactly! The insurance cartel wrote the law and paid the politicians to pass it. It was supposed to be a captive market...but it didn't work out as planned :)

Their questions were all wrong.  They ignored the economy, mass murder, spying, civil asset forfeiture, the drug war and anything else that was important.

Areas that have abandoned all road rules experience less accidents. Why do we need the state again?

The more you're thinking about legality, the less you're thinking about safety.

"...the Deep State will never give up; and in an effort to defend their exit, the outgoing intelligence leadership is using the “Russian conspiracy narrative” as a sagebrush sweep to hide their retreating political footprints."
