    Its not the same. (none / 0) (#43)

    Without a road, or path, we are quite literally stuck in one place.

    If all properties were contiguous, the neighbor who pisses off enough other neighbors goes nowhere.

    A common road allows passage between places at no additional cost to anyone who uses that same road.  Nothing is given or assigned to any single person.

    Healthcare on the other hand is an ambiguous thing.  It is personal, and decisions made by those who seek it out can cost them dearly, or little if at all.  When government controls it, it becomes an assigned commodity.  What might have cost person A $150, might now cost $100, or it might be free.  But somewhere in the assignment of cost, there is a balance that must be made.  There must be an amount taken from someone else to cover that difference. Perhaps from someone who NEVER uses the system.

    How you live defines the difference.  Do you have tattoos?  What about your diet? Are you sedentary? Do you pick your nose after wiping your bum? Etc. Etc. Etc. freaking Etc.

    All of the little decisions you make in a socialized medicine scheme can cost others, and what people get out of the system is not equal, or even remotely fair.  

    A road is used in one way.  You may drive a bigger car, a truck, or whatever, but there is a set of rules. Everyone gets the same thing out of it.  That is NOT socialism.  It is a social compact or contract.

    Socialism balance outcomes.  From each according to their ability, to each, according to his need.

    Contracts provide a trade for service or goods in an agreed upon manner.  You drive more, you pay more. Socially we understand the need for passage, but it is not socialism to have common access to that passage.

    As for the "hyperbole" is was not meant to hurt your feelings or exaggerate.   The reference is my measure of your ability to understand the difference between the two differences noted above.  My guess is you will continue to intellectually belittle yourself and prove my assessment correct.
