Robin of Berkeley's conversion to conservatism apparently offended more than a few progressives.
Witness the economic geniuses at Sadly, No F'ing Sense, who echo the standard liberal response to Robin's heartfelt article.
Never mind that the system that has enriched and fed more people around the world than any other is the free market -- otherwise known as capitalism, which the crackpottery routinely rejects.
Never mind that the authoritarian and Fabian socialist systems that the left idolizes are collapsing as we speak.
Never mind that we already have Medicaid for the poor. And Medicare for the elderly. And those systems, too, are melting down.
Never mind that 75% of all pharmaceutical and medical innovation -- which the bankrupt NHS and Canadian health care systems freeload upon -- originate in the United States. And that those systems are bankrupt. Just like Medicare and Social Security. And the insanity of ladling on another monstrous entitlement -- a bill that no one read and fewer understand -- is just the ticket for the economic illiterates.
But facts, logic, reason and history have never been strong suits for the Left. Especially the jackasses at Sady, No F'ing Sense.
