Makes You Wonder

Can you look at this sign I stole from the internet and see it for what it is?  Honestly, without any political judgments, can you take a deep breath and go through each item and just ponder it for a second?   Forget poor versus rich.  Forget entitlements.  Forget liberal versus conservative or Republican versus Democrat.  You can believe in the foundation and cause of each of these items or not, it doesn’t really matter.  The truth is that the sign is basically correct.   There can be some shuffling of numbers and statistics to prove that it may be a little off but the point is the same…..they are broke and they are all government run.   You can either fight this reality or try to make things better.  Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Nothing astonishes men so much as common sense and plain dealing.”  If these programs were not broke and were run efficiently then I think a mature argument can be made about having the government run our healthcare system.  This is not to say that our system is not broken as it is or that it is affordable.  It is not!  But to put the government in charge…..well…..it will probably just get worse.   The next sign should show all the third parties involved in our present healthcare system and see which ones need to be removed (insurance companies, administrators, bureaucrats, etc).
