 The Bill To Fix Health Care - Permanently

Here in Australia, the government prevents smoking in most public places and requires cigarette packets to have no trademarks and to be covered by dull colors, health warnings and gruesome images. The result is an impressive drop in smoking, including among young people, which translates in to a huge decrease in long-term ill-health and death......................... [ad naseum]

Once again we have people that desire the totalitarian jack boots of the nanny state. What these people are actually objecting too is behaving like responsible adults. That's one thing Karl's plan does and it needs to be done. Just like the banks that keep the profits but gamble with public's money these miscreants want to do as they please but feel they should not be held responsible when their actions harm other people - financially or otherwise.

One is free to do as he pleases until he begins to ACTUALLY harm others. Once you encroach onto the personal boundaries of others you deserve to be beaten back with all available fury and punishments.

Government sponsored healthcare for the most part is one of the issues. People do not wish to act like responsible adults and feel they can do as they please. If a lifestyle and diet change fixes the problem - then it is SOLELY your problem. I don't care if it's diet, unprotected sex, or popping out kids - you are responsible for your actions.

Once people start bearing the true and TOTAL burden for their 'sins' against their bodies (and minds) maybe then will they grow up and start being responsible. You can't MAKE anyone responsible but you sure as hell can make them bear the full burden and consequences of their actions! Once again this is to what many of these people are actually objecting!

It is time to stop coddling immoral beasts intent on the destruction of everything around them. This is irresponsible consumerism where your fellow human being is forced to pay the bills.

And if these people then refuse to be responsible? Natural selection can THEN work its magic without governmental interference. In the end it will produce a stronger, healthier, and more moral society.
