And finally, quit trying to talk for me. Speak for yourself. Don't speak for anyone other than you. I didn't elect you and you don't have a right
to speak for me.
Who is speaking for who? My opening post gave you a choice - you either support the bill or you don't.
I find it ironic that you would bring up someone speaking for you, when this bill insures just that - government speaking and making the choice to
have health care FOR YOU. You want to claim about someone "talking for you" then complain about that. Your choice to believe, say, or choose
whatever it is you want SHOULD be yours. Don't blame me because YOUR "elected officials" are taking that away from you.
I sure as hell didn't elect them in.
If you took part in the process, you most certainly did. Even though you didn't vote for some of the people that were made your representatives,
being part of the process involves you voting for SOMEONE. Just because you don't like them, doesn't mean you didn't get them elected. If you
didn't participate in the election process, then it's a moot point.
Like them or not, they ARE your representatives. And the process by which they were elected determines that they speak for YOU and ME. I understand
this process fully and while I may not like some of the choices they make, I was part of the process that got them into office. It's how the
government works. If you want to shut your eyes and plug your ears and say that they're not YOUR representatives, then maybe you can come back after
your tantrum and discuss it.
You can abide by the decisions and then if you don't like them, you can get into the voting process again next round, or you can try to overthrow
your government. Good luck with whatever your choice is.
