Leftist memes all have one thing in common. A deliberate noted false premise or conclusion. So in this article we will examine another one from Social Media and expose the fraud within it.
This particular one has a lot of incorrect language usages. This is a tactic of the Left. They change the meanings of words to control the thoughts and minds of the common people. We will correct some of these first before diving into the meme as a whole.
Healthcare is not the same thing as health insurance. Unfortunately these two terms are used interchangeably due to the manipulation by the Left. Healthcare is receiving medical attention when required due to illness or injury. While health insurance is the usual method used for payment of the healthcare that was received.
So with that correction to the language lets expose the Leftist fraud presented in the meme.
Other countries, places that don’t have the same values or culture, have socialist and non-socialist aspects. Among these aspects are universal health insurance, this is taxpayer funded without the private sector. Instead of a board of directors determining the payouts to medical professionals the legislature determines what the payouts will be to them. And even who gets care as its not worth the taxpayer’s money to fund a transplant to an elderly patient. This has happened in these other countries that have universal health insurance.
I am opposed because I don’t want my taxes used to fund the poor health and lifestyle choices of someone else. It was their choices that lead to events of poor health or injury. They need to pay it themselves.
Higher education, aka “college”, which isn’t always necessary in some industries is again paid through taxation in the “free college” of other countries. This means that little Jimmy down the road gets to go to whatever college he wants to attend and my tax money pays for it. Even if I don’t have children. Why am I paying for his education?
The other 3 points on this meme are misleading. In the United States we have paid vacations, paid maternity leave, and multiple political parties. Why are they here? To mislead the reader in thinking that they don’t exist and the Left is always out to divide and conquer.
The amount of time and qualifications for paid vacations and maternity leave are determined by your employer. This is based on a ton of different factors that generally are unknown to the average person who doesn’t run a business. And if you don’t like what your employer is offering then you can do something about that. You can attempt to negotiate to a more desired outcome, you can get another employer that offers the desired benefits, or even go into business yourself and set your own terms.
As to the multiple political parties. We have those already. Now the United States has what some call a 2 party system but that is misleading. We have, by tradition, only 2 major parties. And we have had them since the beginning but we aren’t limited to those parties
They have come and gone and that can be an article of its own at a future date. But multiple parties exist. If you favor one over the majors by all means support it. Run for office under it. Get it out there so it can grow. Maybe it will become more mainstream that way. It takes work, time, and people to grow a political party. Create the momentum and see what you can do with it.
And lastly we aren’t propagandized or convinced that we can’t have socialist aspects here. We already have many of them and just don’t want any more. Socialism doesn’t work. History is the best teacher of this fact. Every other country that has embraced socialism has caused the death of its own people. Lowered the standard of living and created poverty on wide scale. It crushed individual freedoms and liberty.
There is a reason why the United States is the richest and most powerful nation on Earth. We have avoided most aspects of socialism instead of embracing them. Let’s keep it that way.
