IF IT IS THE CASE THAT THE USA IS MUCH MORE OBESE THAN EUROPE...
AND IF OBESITY IS A LEADING CONTRIBUTOR TO THE LEADING CAUSES OF DEATH - (HBP/STROKE, HEART DISEASE, DIABETES),
THEN IT IS FALLACIOUS TO ARGUE THE USA HAS A LOWER LIFE-SPAN THAN EUROPE DUE TO OUR "INFERIOR" HEALTHCARE SYSTEM,
AND IDIOTIC TO MAKE OUR SYSTEM MORE LIKE THEIRS.
IN FACT, the USA has a better longer average lifespans and much lower morbidity rates for ALL major diseases - especially when you equalize for racial/ethnic differences, (blacks have high shorter life spans than whites due to genetic diseases, and they lower the USA life span; the USA has 3x more Africans as a percentage of our population than does Europe).

BUT EVEN IF WE DIDN'T HAVE BETTER RESULTS, IT WOULD BE INSANE TO ASCRIBE EUROPE'S BETTER RESULTS TO THEIR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM AND NOT THEIR BETTER DIET, LESS GANG AND INNER CITY GUN VIOLENCE, AND PERHAPS BETTER DRIVING SKILLS.
THE IDEA THAT OUR SYSTEM WAS AT FAULT WAS DEVISED BY SOCIALISTS AIMING TO TAKEOVER THE SYSTEM AND REDUCE OUR LIBERTY AND ENLARGE THEIR POWER.
AND DO SO AT HIGHER COSTS.
THE POLITICIANS AND THEIR CRONIES AND COMRADES.
WE NEED A REVOLUTION, FOLKS.
WE'LL HAVE TO SETTLE FOR A GOP CONGRESS.
VOTE GOP THIS NOVEMBER.
IT'S NOVEMBER OR NEVER.
