Oregon Democrat explaining socialism. I guess in the way gun bans are "For the children!", socialism is "For the seniors!"

Except I think seniors are historically probably one of the groups hardest hit in all the failed socialism experiments. Especially since socialism always bans guns, so they don't have a way to defend themselves from the 200lb bully in the inevitable bread line.

Socialized medicine did start for seniors (medicare).  Social security is a socialized pension scheme.

And in socialist nations, even Great Britain, seniors end up with poorer care if they are deemed by the system ôready to goö or ôhave run their courseö.

No thank you.

The wish not to believe can influence as strongly as the wish to believe.

Who can escape their own cognitive biases?

Speaking of Socialist nations, how about that Sweden?

Or, as I just learned, a free-market nation.  Who knew?  Here's the John Stossel video I just watched where I learned that.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lxD-gikpMs
