A lesson from my youth,
As a child I loved playing video games. Ever so often my brother and I would beg our parents for a new game. I remember one store that put on a sale for a video game system that included a free game when you bought it. However the store charged you an extra $50 when you bought the system with a free game! So you can see that the word free was just a sales ploy. If you can understand such a ploy then you should also see the failure of Socialism. Socialism promises free health care along with other supposedly free government services. But like the store I mentioned, Socialist governments simply make you pay for every service they provide somehow. Don't forget that cost means more than a sales price.
