I have been asked to serve as a conservative columnist for a fast-growing political website, www.politickeraz.com. My first column — on the need to support choice in health care through Proposition 101 — is on-line now:
Americans love choice.
Yakov Smirnov, the comedian who fled the Cold War-era Soviet Union to a new life in the United States, made a career out of examining the myriad choices of consumer products available in America, exclaiming: “What a country!”
Conservatives are particularly supportive of choice – from the ability to choose the schools our children attend to the ability to choose our doctors and health care plans.
Big-government liberals would deprive Americans of choice in education and health care and a host of other areas, replacing them with governmental mandates.
At least with respect to health care, we have a chance this November to prevent the “Hillary-care” style governmental takeover of our health care system in Arizona by supporting Proposition 101, “The Freedom of Choice in Health Care Act.”
