I choose OWS.
Many of them have been to the US(that is what sparked them to want to go to the US) and commended the quality of US medical students. In other words, the quality of UK doctors isn't as good as that of US. You don't have to look far to see what public healthcare is like. Look at UK for example, it cannot afford to hire its junior doctors, there are no parking lots for doctors, and in many hospitals, some doctors have to cover double jobs. There are no overnight rest facilities and if you google, there is a big case talking about an FY1 dying due to sleeping on the way back. I know there are at least 2 cases but only the first was publicly announced. I did not hear much on the second case. Also, the quality of healthcare is significantly reduced. Eating the hospital food would make you want to kill yourself. And, people do die while waiting... The wait is incredibly stupid. You also get a price tag put on your head, and there comes a point when it does not become cost-effective to treat you anymore, whether you are rich or poor.
You can always lower the quality of doctors and have more doctors, that is one solution, affecting quality of healthcare in general and more people die. The other solution is to offer a double-standard healthcare, but doing something so blatant will not get votes, so.... there is a fine balance here, but we need to know which direction to tip the balance. Once you lower the quality of doctors, you will also lose a lot of external funding, such as from medical tourism. People only want to tour the best and US is one of the best places to go to(because other countries lack what US already has to begin with). Be grateful, many countries want to emulate US.

(2) I didn't ask to socialize medicine anyway, I asked to socialize the insurance. Wages would still be a private affair, with rich people still being able to afford better care.
Do you really think Fox News covers protests against them? And on the rare occasions that they do (e.g. their ongoing fight with Daily Show), do you think they are fair and balanced about it?
As for elections being rigged, I think they're mostly not rigged (there have been incidents)... but media bias goes a long way towards messing up elections.
For the record, part of OWS is against the media; the media largely ignored the protests for over a month and they've pretty much stopped reporting on them (even though they are still going on), so Alaris is spot-on.
I was going to mention OWS as an example ;)
Also, Fox News likes to belittle both the Daily Show and OWS. It's quite common for Fox News to refer to OWS protesters as "unwashed college dropouts ..." for example.
Yeah, but President Brewster changed all that.
In other news, the girl who sits behind me was looking at the Obama 2012 site, saw the header at the top that said "OBAMA (LOGO) BIDEN," called me over, and said "What does this mean? 'Biddin'?" and pointed at Biden's name.
This is why my country has been allowed to reach the state it currently is.
