Suppose an Injured Patient Lives in Canada
Suppose an injured patient lives in Canada. The patient needs a CT scan to assess the damage and to schedule an operation, if necessary. The time the patient will have to wait for the CT scan is either the next day or more than a month. If an operation is needed, the further wait is a day or more than 3 months.
If the patient waits for 4 months rather than a couple of days to have the injury operated on, is the patient human or not?
By the logic of socialism, if the patient has to wait 4 months for medical help, it is human. For those patients fortunate enough to receive medical treatment under the private enterprise system in Canada, the medical service is great. As John Stossel notes, you just have to bark or meow. Talking is not allowed. Talkers are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law if they go to a veterinarian for faster and higher tech treatment.
