    Our government subsidizes many foods that make people sick. Much of what we consume is a corn product. We have an FDA that should be looking after our health, but it is run by former executives of the companies they are supposed to be regulating.

    Companies contaminating our water/soil and polluting our air do so with the support of our government. In many cases, our gov places regulations then send manufacturing to countries that don't care mow much poison the dump into the ocean, causing more pollution than if we just left it alone.

    Pharm products do not cure illness; they just mask symptoms so that the patient can continue consuming unhealthy products. While cigarettes kill about 480k per year, prescription drugs kill even more.

    A powerful government with good intentions has proven to be hazardous to our health.

    Personally, I choose to buy locally grown, organic produce. I do not allow pesticides/herbicides on my land.

    Vouchers give people the choices. Government in many instances only needs to make sure people have enough money.

    The best thing our government can do to make sure we have enough money is stop taking so much.

    If if's a govt sponsored free clinic you can pass a law saying that people have to prove citizenship. It they're private who they treat is their business, though you could pass a fascist law saying they're not allowed to either/

    What is it with you and illegals anyway? or do you just hate everybody and illegals just have the most easily identifiable reason
    KILL HER, She dared try to run against the TRUMP. BURN HER WITH FIRE

    Trumpers would be downright scary if they weren't so pathetic.

    Refusing to accept defeat is the issue and your heroine is the queen of sore losers.

    No, not really.
    I think the well to do get up in the morning and go to work making a good wage. They feel productive (which is satisfying) because their work has meaning. They think all is well.
    The disadvantaged get up in the morning and go to work at a meaningless job paying low wages. This is no fun. They look around for someone to blame their problems on and some politician gives them illegals and China.
    Why they fall for this I don't know, because both those groups make less than they do.

    Edit:
    Not so much inequality in the recent past.

    You said something interesting there let the poor get up and go to work and earn money.

    Meaning they're able-bodied capable of working they're not just starving to death or dying of the flu. So in a way the division has closed the bit. Because it used to be that the poor people would starve to death they would have lots of kids because many of them would die.

    So I'm right VN equality has always been there and even in the past it was worse.

    So it's even more preposterous than I previously thought

    But they're not starving to death so the Gap has closed. Therefore stating that gap between them and the people who make more money it's the reason for division is total bill ****.

    Thanks for proving my original point

    Once again, are taxpayer's funding the treatment of illegals in free clinics?

    Meantime, what is it with me and FOREIGN NATIONALS, in someone else's nation ILLEGALLY, absorbing citizen funded resources? That's a serious question?

    PS: I'm actually pro-migration. My own family are migrants. You can obfuscate and conflate in order to make me a demon, but you won't succeed.

    You can't call me on Bshit because it isn't there.
    You said there was always wage inequality - I gave you a graph that shows it's much worse recently.
    You said people were dying of starvation. But you have no numbers.
    No Poly. You are the one full of it.

    Yes it is
    So there reason people are so divided is because of envy? Doubtful
    I'm not the one saying that people making more money than others is why there is division. That's just stupid.
