Single-payer? Be careful!

THE DEMOCRATS are big fans of “single-payer” and the “right” to have health insurance.

Health insurance is advisable if you live in the United States — far less so if you live in Mexico and many other nations — but a “right”? Just because something is highly desirable does not make it a “right.” The Bill of Rights does not mention medical insurance. Of course, there was no medical insurance when the Bill of Rights was initiated, but that “right” has not been added in the subsequent centuries.

Nor has the “right” to decent housing and parental leave, etc. The Democrat Party loves to make things “rights” when all they are is things you want a lot.

This notion of “rights” is a result of American society’s becoming spoiled, a society that’s never faced an existential threat. No one under the age of 40 can even remember the Soviet Union, which is part of the reason so many whippersnappers are keen on “rights.”

The deserve this. They deserve that. They are  ignoramuses.

Single-payer is very popular among Democrats. All those European nations have it, right? And it works great, right? Not so fast there, Bernie bros. Watch the video.

Wonderful Swedish socialism

LEFTISTS AND other Bernie people — and Bernie himself — are fond of pointing to Sweden as an example of how socialism benefits people and that the United States would do well to copy that Scandinavian nation.

There is one huge thing wrong with this claim: It’s totally false. Just ask Swedes.

This is a great video from John Stossel along with real Swedish people telling you the truth behind the Swedish socialist myth. Take the five minutes to become informed.

The Unseen Moon keeps you both informed and entertained. And it’s free.
