I met a guy at a party Friday night. He's originally from the UK, lived most recently near Mannheim Germany. He's a European libertarian, and runs a gun store here in the US.

His politics are closest to Ron Paul, but from a European angle. He says national health care across Europe works fine, as far as his experience.

Sounds like libertarian conservative, except health care. He says we are consumed by corporatism, whereby the insurance companies get rich, from the insured and the government.

First the patient paid his doctor cash-they had a one on one relationship.  Then came the employer with his insurance for employees. A threeway or fourway. Patient, insurance, employer, doctor.

Now comes the government, five way; and the cost never goes down, it always goes up.

There might be a better way, stripping government and insurance companies from it entirely. Maybe coops, or mutual aid societies. The employers might "sponsor" his employees to become members.

Keep it entirely outside of obamacare. Eff their rules.  Republicans sound like broken old records, no fresh ideas.
