...Professor Stephen Hawking, author of "A Brief History of Time", also spoke out in favor of the British system, telling the Guardian newspaper that he owes his life to NHS and its treatment neuro-muscular dystrophy he has suffered from for 40 years.

"I wouldn't be here today if it were not for the NHS," he said. "I have received a large amount of high-quality treatment without which I would not have survived...."

I get a little upset when I see the people over in Great Britain and other countries claiming how great their health care system is.

The problem is with the people in those other countries is that they don't know how bad they got it.

Here in the United States we have great minds, like the Radio Talkers Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck, to let us know how bad socialized medicine is for people. Thanks to people like Limbaugh and Beck we will likely have nearly a hundred million people saved from adequate health care here in the United States.

Sure millions people will likely die because of these great minds against health care and their Teabag followers. But these people know that you can't really be free unless you have the freedom to suffer and die from lack of care. We learned in this country a long time ago it is better "Dead than Red."

Now granted many of these people against health care reform are not against government subsidies when it comes to themselves or super rich corporations, but they are against government help when it comes to the rest of Americans. They know that if government were to help Americans with their health care we would soon be on a slippery slope to more help for people. Pretty soon there would be a lot of people getting help and then before you know it there wouldn't be any corporate CEOs able to make over 700 million in a year.

Great political thinkers, like Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich here in the US, know that if we can't guarantee our corporate and financial elites hundreds of millions of dollars a year then they will just stop working. That would really be a blow to the whole economy because who would be willing to take the helm of these large corporate entities for only $10 or $20 million a year?

America is great precisely because we have really great thinkers saving us from Socialism. Morons like theoretical physicist Dr. Stephen Hawking can stay over there in Great Britain and be a slave to their so called "free" health care. Sure he claims that he would be dead right now without the British National Health Service but that is because he is stupid. Hawking and other idiots that support health coverage for all need to think about what they are saying.

Do they really want to save lives at the expense of freedom?

Thankfully we still have patriots here in the US, like the Tea Bag protesters, that will gladly give up their own lives and the lives of their family members so that Americans can stay free of the curse of socialized medicine. They are followers of the Great Political and Media Leaders that have health coverage for themselves but rightly warn of the dangers of health care for others.

Americans have a long tradition of fighting and dying for their beliefs and that is just what we will continue to do with our rejection of this socialized health care. Simpletons like Hawking and their ilk can spout the benefits of health care for all but they will not fool Americans with their commie crap. Nope, this is a great country precisely because we are free to suffer and die with no health care.

This devotion to freedom, even at the expense of sanity, is what makes America great!
