Well we are indeed 'exceptional'. We are exceptionally cruel to our own citizens who are most in need of our help.

Exceptional in that it finds it necessary to wage class war with allegiences to other dictators, whether communist or right-wing dictators or even jihad-loving oil shieks, in waging war against its own populations WITH support from its voting block...

Who are the few boneheads who answered YES to this poll question?

i sometimes wonder if the people who click on YES are hired, along with those that end up in our infotainment seen trying to rile up people over the wrong things, and things that they certainly must not fully understand.

It was a tough battle to get universal healthcare in Saskatchewan and I think Americans have to take that in mind.The doctors propagandized the public into thinking that the sky was falling-that it was the end of civilization as we know it.Thousands of people were shouting at supporters in the streets, "Murderers!". Tommy Douglas passed universal healthcare in Saskatchewan which was also the dream of another great Cdn hero Dr Norman Bethune, who fought with the Communists in the Spanish civil war and with Mao in the Long March. To this day there are many hospitals in China where you will see a bust of Bethune out front. Tommy Douglas has gone down in history as the most admired Cdn in survey after survey. The previous Great depression bought universal healthcare to Canada, may this Great Depression bring it to the US. I think that to be bankrupted by medical expenses for being uninsured is like being kicked when you're down.

And from one who worked in corrections, you only recieve needed care and you don't get to choose what is considered "needed"--like the total knee replacement I had--that would be considered "elective" even tho I couldn't walk without assistance.

Its probably considered "exceptional" to some conservatives who might want to popularize this "solution" to health care and not just to fatten the prison industrial complex, but also to find a stealthy way to get rid of more likely Democratic voters off of the voting rolls if they, even if those looking for health care very "nicely" choose to commit felonies to get health care. Might be easier for the righties to do this than the other methodogies they use to disenfranchise voters.
