INDIVIDUALISM Individualism is the idea of allowing individuals to look after themselves is the proper way to succeed. Examples is the Liberal Party in Alberta. They say that looking after yourself is right and money from the government will not be granted. American Health Care is an another idea where they have to use there own money to pay for their needs. The government does not support those that need serious medical attention and they have to pay for everything themselves. If you don’t have the money for it, basically you are out of luck. http://politicalhumor.about.com/od/politicalcartoons/ig/Political-Cartoons/Health-Care-Plans.htm
