FreeAlberta

This father/son blog is dedicated to the furtherance of the independence movement in Alberta. It has been made abundantly clear that Alberta is the victim of tyranny by the majority. There is no indication that this will ever change. It is time to leave, to go our separate ways. In this blog I will focus on issues relating to Alberta Independence such as why it is necessary, what an independent Alberta might look like and how we can go about forging our independence.

Medicare Rage

As if we needed yet another reason for leaving Canada.

Why have Canadians allowed themselves to be duped into believing that it is better that everyone has access to free, poor quality, public medical care, with long waiting time than to see anyone have access to private medical care? Why do so many believe that competition and free enterprise are bad when it come to health care? How can we believe that only the government has enough compassion to deliver health care? Face it folks the system is broken – it doesn’t work. Despite the fact that the Feds and the Province are throwing more and more money at a system it is clearly not improving significantly. Without accountability the system can never work well. Don’t lecture me on the ‘horrors’ of private health care. I’m too busy enjoying the horrors of public health. It may be free but waiting a year to see a specialist only to be told to wait another year wait for an operation is neither compassionate nor efficient.

Gents:

You are welcome to join the Alberta Blogs blogroll if you want.

I don't personally agree with Western Separatism, but anyone is welcome to join the blogroll. The only requirement is that you love Alberta and are proud to live here. We already have a few die-hard separatists, so tell your blog mates.

Great blog I hope we can work to build a better health care system as we are in a major crisis and health insurance is a major aspect to many.

blue cross, I think we are beginning to see some signs that change is around the corner. Our Premier is talking about the 'third way'. It won't go nearly far enough but it may be a start.
