Really, people would do well to just figure it out—this is a logical continuation of Reagan’s thought pattern which first he tried to ream down in California with mixed results. Then, he did better at convincing the backward sectors of the United States while president that so many of their problems were due to government. Remember, the whore that he was, doing anti-socialized LP’s back in the late 50’s. “The evils of socialized medicine.”
Now the majority of physicians would probably find him to be nuts. Nevertheless, ingrained in the collective conscious of millions of Americans is a thought they’d usually rather not share: Deep inside, they don’t mind seeing the weak, disabled, and disenfranchised die off. Especially if they are not white. They ruin their sick fantasy that imagines the United States as a ride at Disney, neat and clean, and always pretty. What they don’t seem to realize is the true horror and ugliness is inside of them and no amount of cosmetic treatments (huge houses, SUV’s, etc.) will make it go away. The U.S. is still psychologically a very sick place. And Reagan gave it license to be so.
