Conservatives Across the Pond
What is it that sets conservatives from the United States apart from conservatives in other developed nations? How is it that the Tories of the UK are adamantly opposed to cutting the National Health Service (NHS), the practically socialist, publicly funded health care system they have?
Perhaps the conservatives of the United Kingdom haven’t fallen in love with Randian pseudo-philosophies. Perhaps it’s because the country has stricter lobbying and campaign financing rules. Perhaps it’s because their public isn’t as gullible as ours and the politicians know better than to feed them a line of crap.
