Is or is not, there is no should

There’s a thing that the cool liberal kids on facebook are doing these days, where everybody repeats the following:

(Name) thinks that no one should die because they cannot afford health care, and no one should go broke because they get sick. If you agree, please post this as your status for the rest of the day. See full size image

 

 

 

So, I don’t know what gets to me more, the mindless repetition (one and then the other and then the other, like dominoes, only putting less thought into it), or the unrelenting faith in what “should” be. 

OK, who am I kidding?  Repetition is boring, but what can I say about it?  We already knew that libs love mindless slogans.  It’s the shoulds that get me. 

You hear it every day.  The man should be attracted to what’s on the inside.  People that try should get ahead.  People shouldn’t judge you on your appearance.  It shouldn’t matter how much money you make.  We should be able to trust our elected officials.  Guess what?  This is the real world.  The should world is a myth, a fantasy.  You dwell on what should be, and you miss what is.  You keep on telling yourself that something should be, and next thing you know you’ve convinced yourself that what should be, can be (if only the government would DO something), and you’re ignoring the real world.  The world where government intervention into healthcare leads to rationing and sub-par care.  Maybe it shouldn’t, but it does.
