We could save over a trillion dollars a year!

How much could a Libertarian health care system save us over the government supported monopolistic system we have now?  Answer:  Perhaps as much as one third of what we spend on on health care!  Stop and consider this fact:  Right now you have no right to purchase medicine on your own.  You first have to get a doctor’s “permission” in the form of a prescription to buy medicine to take care of your own health!  As I’ve pointed out in a previous post on this subject, you could end up paying as much as $400 additional per year for the “privilege” of purchasing $80 worth of medicines from a Walmart pharmacy.  And this is not a “one time expense” either.  You will have to go through the same expensive procedure every year to be “allowed” to purchase your $80 worth of medicine.  We are supposed to be a “free country”.  “Supposed” to be is the term.  We have allowed “government” with its guns to take away our freedoms in the name of the “public good”.  This is the “defense” the government will use when asked why we have prescription laws. Of course the only ones who benefit from prescription laws are doctors.  Then when you take your dog to the veterinarian for its yearly supply of heart worm pills, you will quickly find out that thanks to the government, the veterinarian enjoys the same monopoly over the supply of pet meds that human doctors enjoy over human meds.  This is of course a great deal for the licensed professions, one for which their own lobbyists no doubt worked very hard to get.  “Finest Government That Can Be Bribed” you know…  When you add up the total for all these licensed professionals, the figure is well over the trillion dollar level.  That works out to more than $3,000 for every man, woman, and child living here in the USA!

Do you still think that “government” is looking out for your welfare?  Or is “government” only looking out for the welfare of those groups prepared to pay bribes to get the “government” to favor them over everyone else?  Of course the banks, the big corporations do the same thing as the licensed professions do.  This is also “why” you are paying far more for “everything” than you would in a true free market economy with government limited to its Constitutional role.  Just how much more is beyond my ability to calculate…
