Please. People keep spewing every scarey word they can. Facism, racism, dictatorship,socialism, nazism and Obamabots.
Fact is, it is highly offsensive to people who actually live under these situations. It is nothing but a ploy by those who fear change to try to stop
the train moving. Spewn by white, banana republic sportin yuppies. My cousins grandmother has an exhibit in the Holocaust museum. She has tattooed
numbers on her arm. She lost her entire family in the holocaust. Ask her if she thinks this is a dictatorship.
Fact is, Obama was elected on the platform of health care change. That was numero uno. That and ending the wars. So over half of this country elected
him just for this reason.
So he is doing the job he was elected to do. That is VERY constitutional.
The opposition is screaming how we are now going to be paying for the illegal immigrants. If things are so bad here, then why is there such a massive
influx of illegal immigrants trying to get to safety? Ask them if they think we are in "danger".
Keep spewing all the big scary words you want. You think because your screaming at the top of your lungs that your winning. Basically everyone else is
sitting back quietly and shaking their heads till your tantrum is over.
It is such a bad move on the part of the right or independents or whomever. The last eight years have made them look really bad. But it shouldn't.
One president shouldn't be the demise of an entire party. But instead of saying, look, it was a mistake, here is what we can offer or instead of
re-inventing yourselves, you actually hype up the same old scare tactics that have been used for decades, you don't bring anything to the table. You
don't present change yourselves! Yet you expect people to take you seriously. You try to say, oh nothing is wrong. Well it is because over half the
population elected someone to say it is.
You keep hoping that if you yell loud enough that the sky is purple that people will believe you, because you are true patriots. You know who the
patriots are? The ones still fighting an illegal war, for mankind, trying to end that war, and do what is right for others no matter the
administration or party lines.
So not only is this tactic offensive and belittling, and basically isolates you. It sets you up for failure.
People are reeling from the last eight years. And yes, we can bring it up because we are still fighting the wars and the economy those last eight
years brough. Then not only that, you insist on comparing the new administration, to the previous. And then say we can't talk about it.
So instead of coming to the table and saying: oh this is awful, your horrible, you are unconstitutional. Say: this is what WE have to offer that we
like, lets discuss. But oh, there is nothing wrong with what we have anyways.
So we have the right persecuting Clinton for messing with an aide, meanwhile all having affairs themselves, and spending billions of dollars of
taxpayer money even though no one really cared except the gop. Yet, this process degraded the presidency. Then you have your own nightmare elected,
who ran the country into the ground, and degraded the presidency even more.
So someone is elected that people like? And your response is... to degrade the presidency, and accuse him of big and scarey words.
By the time the right and co. is done, the presidency will have been lowered so much, that people will not care who is elected. Meaning that even if a
good and decent and capable gop candidate is elected, no one is going to pay any attention to them. And I don't need to hear any rubbish on how all
politicians are awful because that is just a scapegoat to say that you don't know what you want, and want to be lazy and not accurately look at the
So lets say that Obama does fail, the opposition has made such a mockery over the position in the last 16 years that no one is going to pay much
attention to the new person, whomever they may be. Even if it is a third party.
People keep talking about how rep Wilson is a patriot for yelling you liar at Obama's speech. Yet, as a result, his opponent in the race received
$400,000 in 24 hours as a result. People don't want yellers and name callers, they want people to work for them. They want maturity. Obviously, the
name calling isn't working.
I don't want to see the gop dissappear. They are the oldest party. They were once a great party. I liked what the poster said, the republicans left
the conseratives a long time ago.
I like John McCain. (seems I am the only one). He isn't a maverick. He is old school GOP. He is what the party used to be. Unfortunately, he was
doing what the conservatives told him, and people just don't want war anymore. They had it with Bush. If McCain was allowed to be McCain, I think he
could of done fairly well.
As others have said, there was a lot of fuss about medicair too. Most of those people who receive medicare too are veterans. They fought for this
country, or served in the military. They fought for freedom. Go ahead and try to tell them that medicar is socialism and take it away. See what
happens. I dare you.....
My grandfather volunteered two tours in WWII. He was partially deaf as a result of all the gunfire around him. He was one of the first American's in
Hitler's barracks when Hitler killed himself. He got a degree, and became a teacher. To finally work for a nice company as an international
purchasing manager. He saved a nice nest egg for them to live on. He died 2 years ago of Parkinsons. spent over a year in a hospital. Everything that
he worked for and saved was gone, leaving my grandmother with very little to live on but medicare and SS. But from what I hear, she shouldn't be
receiving those benefits. Not only did the previous administration block stem cell research to find cures for such wretched diseases, now your saying
that people cannot receive help and treatment for when they get them. So exactly why are we here then?
Everyone takes care of this country in one way or another. Paying taxes, teachers, fire fighters, volunteers, mowing your neighbors grass. Is it
really so bad to make sure they have the healthcare they need to keep doing what they are doing?
