Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Socialized Communist Healthcare (Canadians, Brits, et al)
Hey, there, folks living in a country with national medicine
How do you feel about your system?
Would you trade it for the current US system of private insurance?
What do you like about your system?
What do you hate about it?
I have heard criticisms of the Dreaded Socialized Medicine where things are bandied about like, "Everyone gets the same treatment no matter how much care they need" and "Do you want to wait to see a doctor?"
I've also heard that there are sometimes not enough specialists to go around or that doctors don't make a fair wage under these systems.
I would really like a thread where people in nationalized healthcare systems tell the pros and cons, without Ameri-centric debate of the current candidate's policies.
