Nope pretty sure the question is who invented the internet and by internet I assumed he meant the World Wide Web and I answered correctly with Tim Barners-Lee and I obviously got thumbed down because the original poster expected the answer to be an American when the correct answer was British. Its not my fault the truth hurts

To Europeans and even my fellow Americans who do not understand, let me give you a better picture as to why our healthcare is not free...

It's not just about health quality, but politics and the government structure of the country itself. Every [successful] example of free health care appears in countries with these qualities:
-relatively smaller population
-population majority leans to one side of political spectrum (mostly left)
-more powerful government
-uniform country

However, applying that to America would be insane and to the surprise of many, NOT provide any quality healthcare because it does not have ANY of these qualities. The country grew up under a constitution that gave power to the states, not the federal govt., which created a wide diversity of opinion, but also opposition and competition. Yet this atmosphere is ideal for a healthcare system that requires more direct payment. It's how they make money. (but note, they cannot refuse to treat you. They charge high both to compensate and to acquire the services of specialists, who I know are far more hard to reach in a free healthcare system)

If you were to give us a free healthcare system, it would just go totally wrong. First of all, taxes would soar. You pay for healthcare, even if "free" is in the title. It's just being passed through government hands from your taxes to them. And as expected, the more hands the money is passed through, the less that reach the hospitals. To compensate, they increase the tax demand, and your taxes go up. And this does not take into account other consequences such as immediate opposition from those of an opposite political opinion, the longer waiting times, inability to see specialists, etc.

Many think that each country is simply land with borders that if someone else is doing something, that you can copy it and gain the same results. Many more factors, even hundreds, can work against it in the end, achieving a totally different result than expected.

I support universal healthcare and all that, but

The reason we appoint people lawyers all comes down to the way we started as a country. America came about due to legal oppression that we did not have the tools to fight. This caused us to seek revolution.

Now, hundreds of years later, lawyers are free to ensure that you cannot be legally oppressed.

OP is clearly another faggot who doesn't understand the system.

You can go to any hospital in America - literally any single one - and get treated almost immediately for your problem. However, the money to pay for it comes (or SHOULD come) straight from you or your insurance company.

Also, **** ObamaCare. We can't afford that ****** piece of legislation. We can't afford ******* anything anymore.

No it really happened. 3 day before my birthday I was trying to get a cup that was stuck in my sink out when it shattered. The chunk of flesh was hanging on by a thread. I was in the hospital for 5 hours. 3 hours waiting with my thumb wrapped in a towel. 1 while they stitched it up. And another just in a bed waiting to leave. I was like 8 when this happened.

And when a lawyer is appointed to you, he is low-payed and doesn't give a **** ; not trying to generalize also, but I'm sure that the guys who have to have free lawyers generally committed the crimes anyways.

I wouldn't want a ****** doctor who couldn't give a rats ass about my health, and actually benefits from doing less to help me, which is exactly what Obama admitted with the 'painkillers over surgery' deal.

Not only that, but one person's ****** health now directly affects my tax-pay, unlike the majority of people on this site who don't pay property taxes or any other tax except perhaps income tax. If someone doesn't take care of themselves and needs medical attention, I now suffer.
I can take care of myself, thank you very much. I don't need someone else to give me help.
#360 - fuckyosixtyminutes (12/31/2012) [-]
That's because providing a lawyer is to keep you from being bullied and oppressed by your government, which is what American government was designed around, not to provide for your citizens. Sooner or later you have to stop vomiting into the baby birds' mouth.

Fetus did nothing wrong

Criminal on death row probably murdered ad or raped multiple people
User avatar #214 to #69 - galacticboner (12/30/2012) [-]
If death is declared when the the brain activity stops, then life must begin when brain activity begins, which is, if I'm not mistaked, about 2,5 months into pregnancy.
Abortion, if done before that, is not murder, for it's not a being. In this case, it is as murder as cutting your nails. This is my opinion.

About death sentence, I'll just say this:
killing someone because that someone killed another someone and killing is wrong isn't even logical.
Another thing: if you're sentenced to life in prison and then you're acquitted you can get out of jail. You can't "get out" of death.
User avatar #88 to #69 - coolcalx (12/30/2012) [-]
1.) the issue is whether or not a fetus is a person, and whether or not its rights are more important than the mothers (I'm not making a stance, just explaining what the issue is)

2.) many death row criminals are acquitted of all charges
www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/innocence-list-those-freed-death-row
this is a problem, because some of these people weren't acquitted until after they were executed.
