Reagan warns Americans against socialized medicine in this prescient audio linked below. Yes, it is a strong warning about what we are currently facing.
"Operation Coffee Cup was a campaign conducted by the American Medical Association (AMA) during the late 1950s and early 1960s in opposition to the Democrats' ***plans to extend Social Security to include health insurance for the elderly, later known as Medicare.*** As part of the plan, doctors' wives would organize coffee meetings in an attempt to convince acquaintances to write letters to Congress opposing the program. The operation received support from Ronald Reagan, who in 1961 produced the LP record Ronald Reagan Speaks Out Against Socialized Medicine for the AMA, outlining arguments against what he called "socialized medicine".

Well maybe if we had socialized education then people who really want to help the human race and not just focused on money would be able to go to medical school. The AMA is doctors. Doctors governing Doctors. Reagan was against unions and anything else that gave the working man any power. The jeep and the ranch didn't fool everyone. Remember one of his best friends was a chimpanzee. The wall coming down only meant a larger market of consumers. Take the wall from Germany and put it around the neighborhood. Instead of keeping people in it keeps them out. Isn't that whats its all about? Gonzo had socialized medicine I think.

Reagan was the only decent president we have had since Truman and Rosevelt. Nixon a crook, Ford a fill in, Carter a complete joke and a disaster, Bush 1 no good, Clinton ineffective and immoral, Bush 2 ridiculous, and now Obama is going to be worse than the others combined........until the revolt starts anyway.

I am a proud and unapologetic conservative and wonder why liberals find it offensive to be referred to as liberals. Why the deceptive term "progressive"? What are "progressing" toward if not big government, more control over citizens' lives, less freedom for everyone except congresspeople, more Statism, reduction of private property, reduction of free enterprise, reduction in energy independence, more taxes and on and on...
