“The passage of the health care law shows that the US empire is declining because it illustrates the fact that people expect the state to take care of them…”

Sure wish I could argue the logic, but I’m too depressed.

    Mr. Murrin is depressingly astute.

    He’s mistaken regarding China though.

    They’re on a housing bubble that’s ripe for bursting.

    Multiple bubbles, Guns. I don’t buy into some of the scarier stuff, but things are a lot hairier there than most people appreciate.

    I read the article and really cannot understand the logic. If asking, I believe there are many things which could doom this nation in the year 2025 far more greater than affordable health care. No?

    My main concern with China is that they might use military force to address their economic collapse(s). Resources “extracted” at gun point have a very very low interest rate.

    With things as tense as they are in Asia, a China-India slugging match would not a good thing.

    If there is one thing we can be absolutely sure of, government-run health care will not be “affordable”. Somebody must pay for it, and it will expand in cost, while declining in quality, without restraint. This is what has happened elsewhere with it, there is no reason to think it will not happen in the US. Get used to those waiting lists, rationing, death panels and assorted other goodies the beneficent, godfatherly-like Federal bureaucrats who will control our health care in the future will have in store for you. You’ll take what they give you and like it, or lump it. The Government giveth, The Government taketh away; blessed be the name of The Government.

    I think not. And discount any further “information” from this obviously stupid source.
