"If socialized healthcare were proposed in, say, the 1920s and it flourished, we would be fighting to keep it in place. Europe is doing well with their health care."

THIS ISNT EUROPE!!

This is AMERICA! This is a Christian nation and universal healthcare is UNCHRISTIAN. end of story

Wait a second, It's unchristian to give people free medical care... Yet Jesus healed people for free.

Hmmmmm.........

So helping people who can't afford to pay the huge medical bills that get charged these days in the US is bad?

Jesus supposedly helped a lot of sick people and he didn't charge money for it. Shouldn't Christians want to do what Jesus did and help the sick for free?

By all accounts, Jesus went around healing the sick, no matter their age, gender, or social class.

Jesus is so un-American.

"THIS ISNT EUROPE!!"

No shit. There's too many drooling simpletons wandering around for this to be Europe.

"This is AMERICA!"

Yes, it is. Now then, how about we all work together to drag ourselves out of the 1950s and into the 21st century?

"This is a Christian nation and universal healthcare is UNCHRISTIAN."

No, it's not and no, it's not.

"end of story"

Saying this doesn't mean you're right, you know.

Yeah Jesus was dead against healing people.

... oh wait.

guess a socialized car industry is ok, though, cunt?

Yes, Jesus would clearly have disapproved of making sure that the sick were healed.

"THIS ISNT EUROPE!!"

What a stupid thing to say of course this isn't Europe.Who on Earth would be stupid enough to confuse the two?

"This is AMERICA!"

Yes, it is.It's also the 21st century, although many of us here in America aren't all up to date on that and are stuck in the 50's.

"This is a Christian nation and universal healthcare is UNCHRISTIAN."

No, it is not a christian nation. Might I suggest you read the Constitution as well as the Treaty of Tripoli and no, universal healthcare is not unchristian quite the opposite actually.

"end of story"

Saying that doesn't mean your right nor does it mean you made a valid point.

How very christian of you ;)

That's it, anything good is considered anti-christrian.

That's right. This is America. And?

So, socialism is bad? Let's remove all traces of socialism in the U.S., then. Shall we start with medicare? It's socialized medicine. Medicaid? Same again. I'm guessing you will never accept Social Security payments, then? Never use any National Parks. Or state or city parks, for that matter. If you do, we'll call the cops on you. Oops. They won't be able to answer the phone, seeing as they won't exist. Perhaps we can hire our own police force. And we can go back to the Roman model for the fire department, too. The one where you pay them to stop your house from burning. Good thing they won't be coming. They can't drive their trucks there anyway. The roads will fall into disrepair, because the government won't be fixing them. Hopefully you won't be needing any medication, because the FDA won't be scrutinizing the pharmacy companies to make sure the medicines are safe. That's not going to be fun, once you get sick from eating tainted meat; the stuff that's no longer inspected by the FDA as well. It's a good thing you like to home-school your children. The schools won't be open anymore. Don't worry. You won't need to go to work. All the customers your used to have at your privately owned business won't be there anymore, because they either shut down their own businesses, or they were employees of one of the many government offices or contractors. That social worker who bought from your store? Homeless. That teacher who used to hire your husband to do the plumbing? He can't afford it any more. The guy across the street who hired your kid to mow his lawn? He's waiting at the soup kitchen. His job at the post office is gone.

Congratulations. By removing the few socialized programs that do exist, you have thrown the country into economic turmoil. Of course, I'm sure Europe will be willing to help you out of the hell-hole you've created.

Get the damn point yet?

P.S. The Europeans will probably just invade us, if the Mexicans don't first. No socialized anything means no Customs, no Border Patrol, no military...

Correct. This is not Europe.

Correct. This is America.

Incorrect. This is not a Christian nation.

Incorrect. Universal healthcare is very Christian.

Incorrect. The story has not ended at all. There's still many sick and dying people who need medical help, but CAN'T FUCKING AFFORD IT!

Congratulations! You get a 40% grade. I guess you will have to repeat 1st grade.

Get the fuck out of my country. No, seriously, out of my group of friends, all in our mid to late 20's, I'm the only one with healthcare because my job has a great plan. I'm really lucky while my best friend can't afford to see a damn dentist. Fuck you and GTFO!

Then explain how Tommy Douglas- the man who brought universal healthcare to the west- WAS A FREAKING MINISTER!

"Whatsoever you do to the least of your brothers, that you do unto me."

"Love your neighbor as yourself."

Sounds like your Jesus fellow might disagree with you.

And, as many have said already, this is not a "Christian nation."

Would you mind helping me pay for the treatment I can't afford but also can't get any help with then? I'd appreciate it even if you are a particularly (and probably resistantly) misinformed Christian.

Oh just shut the Hell up!

How exactly makes universal healthcare "unchristian"?

Just because you don't agree with it doesn't give you the right to label it unchristian in order to make yourself feel and look better.

Like the previous posts, try reading the Bible more often and you will see the things Jesus Christ did for the poor, sick, and downtrodden.

Thejebusfire

This is a Christian nation...
No it is not.

universal healthcare is UNCHRISTIAN.

Christ (you know, the guy you base your religion on) might have agreed with universal healthcare. Since he was all for helping people. And he didn't charge a cent for his sermons OR his healings.
