these three considerations are self-evident, and are henceforth corollary to the healthcare reform debate:
1- the integrity of obama and his intentions are forthright.
2- "life, liberty, and the persuit of happiness" implies no-cost access to the most basic facilities of life-sustainment. universal health care
falls into this category.
3- the sources of the information upon which your argument is based are truthful and independently verifiable.
if you do not accept these terms, then you are, respectively:
1- an obama hater.
3- a dimwit.
further notes, respectively:
1- i appreciate the difficulty of this statement, but in order for us to get anywhere in this debate it is necessary to at least BEGIN from this
position. if you believe that, or it is later proven that, obama is a liar and a theif, you must state this from the outset. (it would
probably be better for you to use another forum, as the integrity of the president is a seperate issue, altogether.)
2- only the specifics of implementation are up for debate. as a pure ideology, universal healthcare is unquestionable.
3- in general: people that cannot control the tone of their voice, including talk show hosts, certain town hall attendees, and the MSM at large,
should be discluded as valid sources. please be sure to check all footnotes.
clarify your argument: once you have cleared these three rules, then and ONLY then are you ready to put forward your argument.
please feel free to refer any breaches of these rules back to this thread citing, "please see rule #1", etc.
