To brush aside America's responsibility as a leader and — more profoundly — our responsibilities to our fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a betrayal of who we are. Some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. The United States of America is different. And as President, I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action.
...and all hell has broken lose because the assertion being made is that we have "45,000 Americans we lose every year, because our government continues to see healthcare as a privilege not a right".
oh wait, this is the punch line from the diary:
We Americans are righteously told by the president that we don't turn a blind eye on atrocities in other countries. But ask the Americans that I met at Free Clinics across the length and breadth of the nation, if our country has turned a very blind eye on them and this uniquely American atrocity.
