Healthcare through peace

Is it really necessary to point out that funding for . . . healthcare . . . is being diverted into the Afghan money pit? Congressman Ron Paul, the libertarian Republican whose anti-interventionist views set him apart from the other GOP presidential contenders, rightly argues that if we would "just get rid of the Empire" we'd have enough to subsidize healthcare for every American – and then some. . . .

[I]f American progressives really, really want these programs, then why aren't they fighting for them by demanding an end to a war that will wind up devouring any chance for a fiscally feasible national healthcare system?

-- from "Is the Antiwar Movement Waking Up?" by Justin Raimondo
In other words, if you want healthcare, work for peace! (This turns the old saw, "if you want peace, work for justice", upside-down!)
