- The formerly great golden state
No, not by a long shot.No, my not wanting to live in a nanny state does not imply that is one of only two choices. It only implies that I wouldn't want to live in your preferred state.
You've been exposed as a liar.
My preferred state: When a young man crashes his motorcycle, we put him in an ambulance and treat his injuries even if he doesn't have insurance. In fact, in my preferred state, we follow the lead of the entire rest of the civilized world and provide health insurance for everyone.
In your preferred state, we say, "sorry, Charlie," and leave him beside the road, or make him pay for his hospitalization for the rest of his life.
You don't want to live in my preferred state, and I don't care to live in yours.
