Socialised medicine is standard throughout most of the wealthy west, EXCEPT the USA. It works.

Socialized medicine has its problems too.

Evidentally, it works very well in Sweden and Norway, somewhat well in Canada, and a mess in Great Britain (from what I hear second-hand).

I don't necessarily believe in socialized medicine, but I do believe we can do much better. Infant mortality in the US is awful, considering our wealth. Also, I can't help but wonder if there would be less of a drug problem if rehab was free, and if there would be less domestic violence and child abuse if psychiatric services were more accessible.

I don't have an answer.

I think, Kevin, calling it a mess in Britain is an overstatement. It is true that many users in Britain are unhappy with it, but most of the time it works very well. Nothing operates without a few complainers. I would suggest that the system in the USA is far worse, in that many people die due to inability to access good medical care. The New Scientist had an item some time back that said, if Obama care is rescinded, an extra 50,000 people each year would die. If they are right, that is definitely much, much worse than Britain's system.

why isn't do what they do in Sweden and Norway the answer? (sic....according to just the way you set the issue up???)

Yes. no system is perfect.

However although we have a private obstetrician that cost $3,800 AUD , we had a problem and BINGO the Australian public health system kicked in. The director of pre-natal at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital took personal care of us. We moved to weekly scans, we had expert after expert look after us. When the problem faded away I didn't have to pay a cent. I already paid through my tax return at 1.5% of my individual taxable gross, called the medicare levy.

It's pretty good down here in socialist Australia.

Have you seen the video of the officer arresting the suspect in the Toronto van attack? It can be found along with the article here: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/ot ... -1.4633468

The suspect pretended to have a gun and was pointing "it" at the officer. He wanted to be shot. Instead, the officer realized it wasn't a gun, holstered his own weapon, and pulled out his billy club instead. The suspect did NOT want to be hit with a stick, though, so he surrendered.

So much for the good guy with a gun.

" I also know that the type of person who signs up to wear the shield is the kind that is supposed to run towards the danger. " //// There are always a variety of reasons to do *anything*. Running towards danger may be a once in a lifetime event for .01% of cops....but who is attracted to grammar school policing? Not your modern Marvel Comicbook action figure.
