    Thanks for the entry, but I have a little beef with your concession to Limbaugh (who is a dumbass in addition to being sort of conservative)

    Just ask most members of farmer or electric co-ops (who lean conservative, last time I checked) and New York housing co-ops (politically all over the map). Or even better, check out which member of Congress has put forth the most radical employee-ownership proposal in recent history. Yup, Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA).

    And of course, there are already several Christian healthcare co-ops, among many other faith-based cooperatives:

    www.holycoop.wordpress.com

    They might not be the best approach for this particular issue, but overall they just make sense, and you don't have to lean left to see that.

    Other than that little generalization, I appreciate the time you put into responding to the huge and growing swarm of knee-jerk rejections of co-ops.
