Zip code with most Obamacare enrollments votes Republican

No. But I think everyone who is expected to live under a violent monopoly that claims to be Of, By, and For the People should have a choice.

You do have a choice. You vote for your elected representatives. That's how a democratic society works..

I don't think a few dozens dead people should be allowed to shackle generations centuries in the future to a ruling class which class a monopoly on violence and mandate to rule.

Seriously dude? There are a lot of issues with our government, no one is denying that. But no one is shackling future generations to some oppressive evil regime. Come on, get a grip on reality and come out of your dystopian future novel. This isn't 1984.

Also, what do you even mean by "monopoly of violence"? You keep saying that over and over. You mean the government controls the police? Of course they do... You mean the government puts people in jail who don't follow the law? That's how laws work... Yes, there have been recent incidents with the police abusing power, but I would hardly characterize our society as some brutal police state where everyone is leaving in constant state of fear of the government's wrath. So I really fail to see what you mean by "monopoly of violence".

As long as we're quoting lines from works of early 19th century fiction writers:

“That is just the way with some people. They get down on a thing when they don’t know nothing about it.” - Mark Twain

Do you even know where that quote came from? It's from Elective Affinities, a fiction novel about an aristocratic couple and their interactions with the wife's niece and the husband's childhood friend set in the German countryside in the early 1800s.

Sorry if I don't find a quote from a 200 year old German fiction novel about a couple living in the countryside, with no context, to be particularly applicable to this discussion about healthcare in the context of 21st century American government.
