Baucham: Opposition to socialized medicine 'rings hollow'

Dr. Voddie Baucham (pictured here with his wife, Bridget) is pastor of preaching at Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, Texas. In a recent blog post ("The Yellow Prison Bus and the Future of American Healthcare"), he wrote:
One of the mantras we hear repeatedly these days is, "we don't want socialism." While that sounds good (and conservative, and constitutional, and patriotic, etc.), it rings hollow when you consider the overwhelming majority of the people leading the charge have their children in what amounts to socialized education. What's the difference? If you're really against government-run, socialized programs, yank your kid off the yellow prison bus and just say no.
