Political left becoming great threat to nation

February 23, 2013

The left’s argument for the health care mandate is the height of hypocrisy. They claim that working people who can afford insurance are irresponsible for not buying it....

Bradley, you could not be more mistaken. Truth is, much of what is rotten in Obamacare was put in there by bought-and-sold republicans to kiss up to health care companies and pharmas. Why would Congress insist that Medicare be prevented from negotiating drug prices? It makes no sense, but thanks to flag-waving GOP lawmakers, it in there. By the way, YOU do NOT live independent of the government. If you drove on a public road, attended a public school, relied on police and fire services, then you my friend are living the socialist dream. To the extent that you pay into a private FOR-PROFIT health insurance plan that skims 40% off the top before it ever goes into the company, you are living the capitalist nightmare burlesquing as socialism. The point is, we are all in this together, and to focus on welfare and immigrants is exactly what Rush Limbaugh and the republican party WANTS you to do. Why are none of the Wall St. criminals behind bars? They are your problem, not Obama.

By the way, the political "left" is so NOT the left it's a joke. What you characterize as left is Barry Goldwater conservatism! Today's republicans would make Ronald Reagan turn over in his grave. There is a difference between conservative (measured, cautious, deliberate, fair-minded) and whacked (God bless America, pass the guns, shut down social security, ban public radio, send Muslims home, ban minimum wage, the list goes on) that our nation has become the laughing stock of the world. We lead the world in murders, trail our civilized brethren in health care, infant mortality, income disparity,and math and science scores - never mind what we have done to the arts (we created Honey Boo Boo...) But by God we don't let our super bowl half-time show corrupt our children with 5/16th of a second of female nipple. That's showing them! Thanks to false conservatism, we are becoming the nation of idiots.

A fitting comment from the aptly named Daft...

Puremagix seems to make a distinction between entitlements for himself (roads, police, etc.) and entitlements for someone else (welfare, food stamps, etc.) - money spent (and yes, I would agree in many cases wasted) on the rubix cube that is foreign policy is ill-spent - but that is not socialism. That's just bad foreign policy, and much of it is rooted in capitalism. Anyone who believes the Gulf War and the war in Iraq were launched for anything OTHER than to benefit Exxon Mobil is not facing reality. We waste a LOT of tax dollars propping up corrupt governments like Afghanistan and funding senseless pork-barrel projects like farm subsidies and dying military bases, but again, that isn not socialism - it's bad governance. If we want to fix things, we don't need a massive tilt to the political right, we need a massive campaign finance reform, do away with 90% of the lobbying (which in other countries is called bribery) and a repeal of Citizens United.

The left IS a threat to a free nation. It's because they've become entertwined with the communist party. They are miserable little creatures with no real future. They hate God, they hate freedom for all, they love chaos, starting turmoil through racist means and pitting one group against another and sit back and laugh and enjoy others misery. They tax and tax people to the point of starvation and have no compassion for the results that cause poverty for people. It's all about them. They have no sympathy or compassion for people. It's a MENTAL DISEASE!

Puremagix, if the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to treat everything as a nail... I suggest that you stop listening to Fox News, AFR (which is one of the most dangerously ignorant sources out there) - and yes, stop listening to MSNBC or CNN - they are either tilted to one political camp or the other or in the case of CNN, they are dedicated to news as reality entertainment. Look for impartial sources - BBC or AlJazeera - and then make up your own mind. But you sound to me for all the world like the grand poobah of the Rush Limbaugh fan club.

I noticed that What always accuses someone of 'ranting' when the subject is too difficult for him to wrap his unused brain around. I am enjoying the fun listening to ridiculous liberal logic. LOL.
