The presidential race is already
heating up, almost two years before the election. The news
media are abuzz about two Democrat Party hopefuls, Hillary Clinton and
Barack Obama. Who will get the nomination?
The real question is, what does it matter to us ?
candidates have only shown a bit of their real agendas. It's just
enough to see that they are still going to do pretty much the same as
the incumbent Republican: Take more money and rights from us,
keep a huge cut of it for themselves, and sprinkle the rest on
whatever problem they have defined - usually caused!
The sad thing
is, such problems as expensive health care are created
by government action, inaction or plain ineptitude. In the
case of medical expenses, government rationing of health care,
protection of hospital "turfs" from competition, and licensing and
other regulation are the direct cause of health
care being so expensive. Oligopolies protected by the
government set their own prices far above cost, and only need to please
bureaucrats and politicians, not their customers, us!
you're unsure on the concept, how do you feel about utilities, oil
companies, cable and telephone companies? Do they serve you
well, are their prices too high? They are also protected from
competition... by the governments supposed to serve us!
Hillary or Obama? Who cares? Whatever they promise
comes out of our hide - and it's never enough!
