Below at right is the change in American life expectancy by county in the twenty-year period from 1987 to 2007, and as soon as I saw this map I had an epiphany! All this time I had thought that the higher the life expectancy, the better things would be for the nation as a whole, but I was working with the wrong paradigm! I suddenly realized that the conservatives and libertarians had it right all along! They've proven that the level of health care coverage and the population's life expectancy are of no importance whatsoever when the future of the nation as a whole is at stake! The only thing that really matters is, is a person lazy or not, and it's time the not-lazy people began standing up for themselves!
You see, the conservatives and libertarians had all this figured out a long, long time ago. They understood that if they could keep the lazy people from getting a good education and access to good health care, the lazy people would start dying a lot sooner, and they were right! As the map above shows, life expectancy is falling in many of the counties of the heartland of red state America, which must mean that the lazy people are dying off in sufficient numbers to skew the statistics so much.
And what does this mean? Without so many lazy people around (heck, they were probably all lib'ruls from the Democrat party anyways), then the real Americans, the conservatives who are all highly educated and are not lazy, could save more of their precious tax dollars and that means that as the rest of the nation crumbles under an unsustainable nanny-state burden, red America will rise to save American civilization, just as John Galt was preparing to do as he safeguarded the American industrial braintrust in Atlas Shrugged. Isn't it incredible how life imitates art?
I stand in awe at the enormity of the concept! This grand effort by the conservatives and libertarians of America is without doubt the most brilliant long-term example of social engineering since, well, since Ozymandias bestrode the world of antiquity like a colossus!
