Forgive me if the title of this post seems offensive to you, and allow me to explain in a little more detail.
You see, I've just viewed Michael Moore's new movie, Sicko (click to download a lo-res version of the avi for free here, no tricks, no gimmicks).
And his movie makes me sick.
Sick of our country.
Because our country is sick.
Some of you may be saying "well, tell me something I don't know."
But at this point in time, after having this movie drive home its point so eloquently, so undisputedly, so clearly... I really only have two options:
1) Overthrow our government
2) More to Europe, or Canada, or Cuba, or some other country with free health care for all.
Nothing else really seems like a good option right now.
Because, health care affects all of us.
And as Mike points out so well in his movie, the American health care system is broken. It has been broken by money-grubbing corporate thieves, carrying out a plan hatched by Richard M Nixon and his cronies back in the early 1970s.
In short, the American health care system, like so much else in our country, was devised by men who represent pure evil.
By men who want nothing more than more money for themselves, and the worst possible for everybody else.
Think I'm spouting hyperbole? Think I'm making this up?
Watch the movie. Go ahead. Then, tell me how I'm wrong.
I want to be wrong. I do.
I'm afraid I'm not.
And while you're telling me what to do, help me choose between overthrow of the government and leaving the country, because there's got to be a better solution than a coin toss.
