Sad day to be an American....

As a student to Austrian economic theory this is one of the worst days of my life (second only to the passing of PATRIOT act). I don't have anything else to say, if you want our argument against health care read this post:

“One of the consequences of such notions as "entitlements" is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for being nice enough to grace us with their presence.” - Thomas Sowell

“Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.” -Frederic Bastiat, French Economist (1801-1850)

“I don’t make jokes… I just watch the government and report the facts.” -Will Rogers

“If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it’s free!” -P.J. O’Rourke

“Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress….But then I repeat myself.” -Mark Twain

“I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.” -Winston Churchill

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery.” -Winston Churchill

“Socialism is workable only in heaven where it isn't needed, and in hell where they've got it” - Cecil Palmer

“Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it” -Thomas Sowell

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” - Winston Churchill

“Socialism: nothing more than the theory that the slave is always more virtuous than his master” - Henry Louis Mencken

“Socialism values equality more than liberty.” - Dennis Prager
