Linguistic genocide. The earth is going to be speaking nothing but English, Chinese, and French etc.

All of Africa practice two foreign religions: Islam and Christianity.

American markets and capitalism eat and spit out consumers who eat standardized commodities sold by multinational corporations all over the world.

Evangelical Christianity is sweeping Latin America and robbing people of their traditional roots from indigenous culture to African culture to latin culture.

Every country that does not want to bombed and destroyed by America must give up their natural resources that go towards their people and their cultural institutions and they must copy America with everything they do.

Here in Australia, media deals have destroyed traditional Australian comedy, culture, entertainment, values and replaced them with American shit. Australia since WW2 has gone from a traditional working class British country to a cosmopolitan country based on American culture.

 

Even black rap hip off is purely an American cultural phenomenon. It's a product of a racial underclass who buy into American capitalism. African Americans are culturally rootless. This is found less in Latin American countries but it is happening there too.

Malcom X would have been disgusted.

 

I could rant some more but these are just some examples.

Sounds like you’re on the receiving end of American long dick.  I hope you’re gonna be ok dude.

Linguistic Genocide - French, Chinese are not American languages, and English is because of the British Empire and globalization. 

Africa Religions - Neither of those religions are American and Islam conquered North Africa before 800 AD. So not exactly our fault.  

South America - Considering the fact that South American native religions involved large amounts of slavery and child sacrifice, I think Evangelical Christianity is an upgrade. 

As far as Australian culture goes, it sounds like you never had one, if you were just copying the Britsh and now you just copy us. Idk what to tell you other than 'Git gud' and make more interesting things?

Rap music is cool, if not morally questionable. 

Overall, none of these things are America's fault and in general, the globalization of trade and ideas has lifted billions out of poverty.

Malcolm X (at least early in his career) was a terrorist and a racist so if he is unhappy with modern America, then I think we are doing a good job.

True for someone who seems to like open borders and things that free movement is a human right - you dont seem to like human interaction.

Most human interaction is rapey and non-consensual. Is it justice that Africans speak English and French while practicing Islam and Christianity as they work for their masters in the EU?

Leftists desire freedom of movement within reason.

It is a nuanced debate. 

Today's migration is FORCED movement.

No, we need more people with health care. 

The best way of going about that is with more freedom and choice, silly. Everyone has the same goals.

"The best way of making sure more people have health care is to make it easier for companies to throw people off health care/make it impossible for them to acquire it, and leave them no alternative." 

Well then.

What do you mean? If I am not mistaken, car insurance is only required because if you crash into someone else you are responsible for them.

Well then. 

I am not an economics expert so I can't articulate the best solution for healthcare, and I admit that our current system is a mess. However, I think America gets unjustly attacked for our medical care when it is actually very high quality. 

I know from personal experience that my family in Canda who are older, constantly come to America to have surgery because the waiting period is so long in Canada for anyone over 50. 

America also has better quality of care in many areas for example it has higher cancer survival rates than many countries with universal healthcare. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/dcpc/research/articles/concord-2.htm  https://www.healio.com/hematology-oncology/practice-management/news/in-the-journals/{f958e84b-6d0e-48cd-8f46-05911f4d31ec}/us-cancer-survival-rates-remain-among-highest-in-world

People in the UK literally go blind waiting for their bloated government to help them https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/06/06/hundreds-going-blind-year-amid-nhs-delays-research-shows/

You also lose sovereignty over your own health when you put the government in charge of it. For example, when the government in the UK forced those babies to stay and die over there, even when their parents requested to fly them to America for treatment.

In addition to all of this, an incredibly large amount of medical drugs (over half), and technologies that people use throughout the world are made in America, and more government intervention would almost certainly slow down development, not just for us, but the whole world. https://www.forbes.com/sites/gracemarieturner/2012/05/23/though-the-u-s-is-healthcares-world-leader-its-innovative-culture-is-threatened/#6edb063f77eb

Also, ERs treat everyone regardless, so the idea that millions are dying on the streets, is wrong. And none of this negates the fact that using the government's gun to force your neighbor to pay for your healthcare, is unethical.

Affordability of health care is access to health care. It doesn't matter in the slightest how high the quality is if you can't afford it. People literally put off going to the ER - and do die - because they don't want to go into the massive debt that such a trip can put you into. 

Single-payer is not "putting government in charge of health care". The government doesn't provide medical treatment and should not be structuring coverage. It should simply be funding the health care that citizens choose for themselves. 

For a person on the side of the political aisle that is consistently in favor of school vouchers, you'd think you'd be all over this.

If you get sick or have an accident, doctors have to help you even if you don't have insurance, and even if you never pay your medical bills. It's the same thing.

I can help explain how this works. With Medicaid or Medicare you get to choose out of several plans what coverage you want from private insurance companies. So this scare tactic and misinformation from Bernie Sanders and Republicans simply isn't true. Private healthcare companies will still be around, the government will just fund and regulate them. 

 

Also, the argument that the government would limit what services would be covered is bullshit for 2 reasons. First of all private insurance companies through people's jobs already does this. You don't simply get everything covered. Secondly a person on medicare can switch plans if they don't feel like the coverage is adequate.

Preciesly why big pharma doesn’t want to be regulated in any regard, because it’s going to affect their profits.

At the cost of shreking your credit, which will almost guarantee hurting you financially for a long time. But hey at least the person isn’t dead.

Medical bills did not go towards your credit score until Obamacare.

For Obama so loved the poor he created millions more.
