Subject: Single Payer Or Bust

"What about one or another of these so-called health care reform plans?

"None of which is capable of making good on health care for all."

"Why not?"

"Insurance company greed."

"But when such a system fails won't that be the time for us to push for a single payer system such as Medicare for all?"

"Except we'll have difficulty gatting people's attention then, what with rightwingers all over MSM screeming "told ya so, told ya so, government's the problem, not the solution, and the charge will stick."

"The answer being?"

"Mass uprisings in support of single payer."

"Who'll lead?"

"Everyone has to be a leader."

"Anything else?"

"There is no alternative."

Subject: We Need A New Game Plan


"Time's running out."

"Based on?"

"Perpetual war + global warming + economic collapse = doomsday."

"The opening move in this new game plan?"

"Making sure that our government establishes a single payer system such as Medicare for all, whereupon, empowered by our victory over the powers that be, it'll be up to us, the what sort of world."

"How will Medicare for all turn things around?"

"The success of Medicare for all will shatter the Republican myth that government's the problem, not the solution."

"Anything else?"

"The public will have learned that it's corporate owned government, not government of, for and by the people that can't be trusted."
