- Imagine the federal government annexing the entire economy of Britain or France. OR
- Imagine the various federal governments of the Eurozone establishing a federally controlled healtcare system from Dublin to Athens.
Even in Europe, in which many of the nations possess a healthcare system similar to the one Pres. Obama wants us to have so desperately, the scale of what he is attempting hasn't even been tried. After all, just keeping that many people of that many widely differing cultures aren't doing that well on a single currency, nevermind a single healthcare system. No one but the Soviets have ever even attempted a federalization of health care for this many people before. Which should tell us all something, I think.
