The Soviets Win

Short of starting us on the path to the total surveillance society that we're now on, the Soviets probably screwed us the most by attaching "communism" to the same kind of health care system that has produced the best results in the world in Germany, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. Even Canada's is better than ours. One of the strangest things to explain for future historians will be how the world's richest nation could invent such a horrible health care system for all its people. And notice how well we do on getting to see a doctor once you get to his/her office or to an emergency room. We have a lot to answer for when the final tote is done, but this is one of the biggest.
