Socialism doesn’t have the stigma it had just a few years ago. Many people even believe it’s a genuine ‘good’. That’s mostly because they’ve never seen it in action.
That confidence in the government solving everyone’s problems will change when (if?) they have the guts to watch the video at the bottom of this story.
Spoiler alert: the first sentence in the 2-minute clip is ‘More Canadians are dying while waiting for health services’. Worse yet, it uses Canada’s own government data as a source.
Until they run into the brick wall of reality, fans of socialism remain whole-heartedly convinced that their utopian dream is nothing less than a-maz-ing!
Socialists have watched their beloved system fail them before
We see the same principle in the way Bernie Sanders has backpedaled over his love of the wonderful Soviet/Communist system. In 1985 he praised breadlines. In 2011, he praised Venezuela’s economy and mocked America. By the time he was running against Biden, he had 404’d his own embarrassing words from the Senate website.
Reality caught up with his utopian fantasy and beat it with a brick.
An old 1985 quote by Bernie Sanders popped up where he tried to claim Soviet bread lines weren’t REALLY evidence of systemic flaws in communism’s centralized Command Economy or mass shortages of basic daily needs.
“It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is because people are lining up for food. That is a good thing! In other countries, people don’t line up for food. The rich get the food and the poor starve to death.” — Bernie Sanders, via FoxNews
This is the same thinking that led Bernie Sanders to use his Senate website to publish an article praising Venezuela while denouncing America as the REAL ‘banana Republic’. Embarrased by what Venezuela has become since he wrote it on Aug 5, 2011, all record of that post has been scrubbed, to be replaced by a solitary reference to Venezuela in which Bernie denounces the current head of state. But the Wayback machine still has it — so long as you know exactly how to look.
Screenshot of Bernie’s closing argument:
Self-proclaimed Democratic Socialists like Bernie and ‘The Squad’ wax eloquent over the benefits of socialism while being blind to the real-world consequences.
For some reason they think THIS time will be different…
Next up: Free Health Care.
This is another one of their favorite hobby horses.
Democrats love to point to examples like the UK’s NHS, or Canada’s Socialist Health Care System — which only proves how shallow their knowledge of either really is.
Left-wing news is telling some hard truth about ‘free’ health care in UK
In short: the UK’s beloved NHS is in a shambles.
Left-wing news outlet ‘The Guardian’ has a piece published TODAY, describing how the UK’s vaunted system is on the brink of collapse.
Ministers must get a grip on the crisis engulfing the NHS, senior doctors have warned, saying a “shocking” and “devastating” special report by the Guardian exposed the daily reality of pressures faced by health staff, the dire impact on patients and risk of the service collapsing.
Thirty-three months after the World Health Organization declared Covid-19 to be a pandemic, the Guardian spent 33 hours inside the NHS, reporting from inside a hospital, an ambulance service, a pharmacy and a GP surgery.
Dr Adrian Boyle, the president of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, and Prof Philip Banfield, the chair of the British Medical Association, said the “unsettling” account from the frontline should serve as a wake-up call to the government.
Without meaningful action to increase the capacity of the NHS, retain and recruit staff, and resolve longstanding problems in social care, they said, more patients would die – and the service itself was at risk of complete collapse. –TheGuardian [emphasis added]
And let’s not forget, in the UK, if government health care fails you, you are not free to look to other solutions elsewhere in the world — even if you have the money to do so. ClashDaily followed two stories of toddlers whose deadly illnesses were beyond the ability of British doctors to cure, but distraught parents were blocked by their own government from seeking medical treatment in other parts of the world where doctors had treatment options that would save their lives. Their names were Alfie Evans and Charlie Gard.

Compassion In Dying gives us a smooth segue into the video that we DARE some of these self-proclaimed socialists to watch.
Canada’s health care system is no better
If you thought today’s article about the UK was bad — wait until you see Canada.
As you watch this video, keep in mind that Canada’s system has a safety valve. Anyone who gets desperate enough, or has money to spare, can cross the border to an American hospital and get life-saving treatments their own country is unable to provide them. Any out-of-pocket expenses that treatment might cost them are weighed against the other kind of expense they would pay — the price of being dead.
It might surprise Democratic Socialists to learn that a lot of Canadians choose NOT being dead over taking their chances and saving a few bucks… and so they come to America to NOT be dead.
Today, https://t.co/W4PpgMet7m released our annual Died on a Waiting List report.
Since 2019, we've been tracking how many Canadians died while waiting for surgery or a diagnostic scan.
This year, waitlist deaths hit a four-year high.

It’s not a question of just throwing more money at the problem. Health Care funding has skyrocketed, but can’t keep up to demand and expenses. That’s where the wait lists come in.
Of course, Canadians have ONE procedure where there is no waiting at all. Medical Assistance in Dying.
They can bring your body down to room temperature in a matter of weeks.
And just THINK of how much you will save the government’s bottom line.
You’re practically a hero if you off yourself.
Sure it’s being scoffed at as a meme…

But it’s more than that. Even people who don’t WANT to die are opting for suicide because Canada’s ‘amazing’ social safety net isn’t enough to help them.
We are already at the point where 3% of Canada’s total deaths in a year are done by appointment with their doctor. That number is likely to go up .
Canada is killing 10,000 people a year with ‘medical assistance in dying’ (MAID) aka euthanasia.
10,000 people who should be loved. All human life is sacred.

Why is that number so high?
