Let's Set Theory Aside For a Moment

I love to argue passionately against socialized health care, but the fact is, I do so from theory. I don't really know what socialized medicine looks like. Then again, neither do I know what wholly free-market medicine looks like. Our mixed economy makes empirical evidence hard to gather in favor of my preferred way.

Ah, Canada. Whenever an example of a better health care system is sought, Canada is so frequently the answer. After all, Americans are now increasingly buying their prescription drugs from Canada, so they must be doing something right.

You can gather empirical evidence on Canada's socialist system. How about a Canadian perspective, then?
