Exactly, it is already a hybrid social/capitalism system in the US; Military, Police, Fire, Public Works, Welfare, schools are all socialized.

Does anyone not think we need socialized medical care?
My wife and I are having our first child, I tell you what reading about Norway and France's socialized birthing and hospitals make me wonder what are we thinking in the good old US.

Thank you it is very exciting, we have opted not to use a Hospital and we are going with a Midwife, which is not covered by my insurance...

Don't get me started. France is so much better when it comes to health care.

thats fine, but it doesnt change the FACTS presented in the video. most rational people should be able to overlook the host in favor of the factual evidence presented. you can hate your professor, but that doesnt mean s/he cant teach you.
