Inside every progressive is a totalitarian screaming to get out.

If you ask the government for a permit, you are admitting that you don't have a right.

The MSM will give the credit to Obama.

Don't let j see this chart. He will assure us we missed the boat with socialized medicine/healthcare.

Well there is a report, and there is where the rubber meets the road.

Did that report predict the bungling of pandemic test kits?

Where did S.Korea rank, since they seem to have handled it best of the bunch so far.

Ninth. It's right there under Denmark. You'd have seen it had you troubled yourself to look.

South Korea was #9 in the report. I think that the biggest reason for their success in containing the spread is the fact that they are a homogeneous society as far as race, philosophy, religion etc.. It's a lot easier to handle a crisis when you're all on the same page. The fact that they also only have 51,000,000 people in a small geographical area also helps.

I can't figure out how anybody has concluded that SK has handled anything. How so?

Start here.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_c...in_South_Korea

Compare and contrast their response and results with others.

Well why didn't SK score higher on the report then?
It isn't like any of that changed in a year.


I think it is more having an excellent socialist HC system that is liked, trusted and has excess beds.
A nation that is somewhat always prepared for war with a sense of duty to the nation and their fellow citizens.
They quickly developed test kits using WHO standards.
People that wear masks when sick already.
Political leadership that was straight with the public from the get go.

Pretty much the opposite of us.




As a bonus why is it that only the US has people acting like complete idiots with this covid thing in the news?

Stuff like intentionally coughing on the cops, coughing on grocery produce and meats, throwing temper tantrums of limits on purchasing Mountain Dew, brawls over TP, licking food containers at the store on video and licking toilet seats?

Wonder if any of that jackassery was figured into the ranking?

Funny thing is, not all South Koreans are happy with their governments response. https://www.lowyinstitute.org/the-in...id-19-response

Well it isn't surprising people in the leadership's party are supportive of the response and those in opposing parties aren't happy.

When you remove political affiliation from the survey you still only have 43% of the people approving of the government response.

No. The fact that you are a socialist is what makes you a socialist.

No, pointing out that our crony capitalism/private/govt subsidized HC system is expensive with poor results compared to the better run socialist HC systems makes me a realist.

Pointing out even if we adopted such a system it would be a failure because it would be run by the same 2 corrupt and incompetent parties that are serial failures also makes me a realist.

I don't know what that shows or proves?

You can't make everyone happy?
People have unrealistic expectations?
Or perhaps they would be more happy with SK results if they looked at Italy's.

No, your preference for socialized systems makes you a socialist. In fact it's the very definition of one.
