In re our Great Leap Forward; that being particularly "Health Care Reform."

It is quite dismaying to me that so many of my fellow Americans display such anti-intellectual buffoonery when comes up the subject of anything remotely resembling Europeanism.

Friends, it is time we embrace the deep, critical thinking of our Continental forebears (and dare I say, our betters) and recognize that sometimes they simply know things in a finer and deeper way than our sad little provincial minds are able to grasp.

I know some of you mouth-breathing, tea-bothered troglodytes may find it unfathomable, but maybe you should listen a bit to what the British, and GASP...the FRENCH (quelle horreur!) have to say about the bright future of our new order:

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.
Winston Churchill

The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.
Alexis de Tocqueville
