Socialized medicine - fifty years ago

A friend sent me this YouTube link to an advertisement from the 1950's narrated by a young(er) Ronald Reagan, warning against the evils of socialized medicine. I found it fascinatingly prescient.


  1. Ronald Reagan was a visionary. He could see trouble looming on the horizon, and he was right. He stepped up and saved California before he stepped up and saved all of America.
    In my opinion, he was a genuine hero.

    Today, America (and Western Civilization) is facing even greater threats to our very existence. There doesn't appear to be another hero waiting to ride to the rescue. Instead, Americans must be our own visionaries. We must each of us find a way to preserve ourselves and what is right, and by doing so we may preserve our nation as it was intended to be according to the Constitution. In other words, we must retain our individual independent spirit if we want to retain our national identity.

    Live free or die.

  2. Reagan rocks. It was five years before I voted for the first time but I had a Reagan sticker on my bumper. Looking back I'm not sure what I was thinking at the time because back then I was living hand to mouth party harty give it heck all the time lifestyle. If I could remember what it was that impressed me so much about Reagan I would gladly share it with you.

  3. Sadly we have no greatest generation that was filled with roll up the sleeves get it done leaders who led by example and had priorities squared away. Not like our leadership in both parties who care nothing but consolidating their power.And the greatest generation achieved in spite of that pompous ass socialist Roosevelt who as we are beginning to uncover was behind us getting into the second world war.

  5. You Reagan haters need to get over it. The joke is on you. It will not be long until you will yearn for the days of real leadership. Obama is not going to cut it. If you desire a Messiah then you are in for a rude awaking.
