US Constitution PROHIBITS Government initialed Health Care
We continue to see the DESTRUCTION of the US Constitution by Congress and a willing Executive branch. The only way that a national health care program could be LEGALLY instituted by Congress is with a Constitutional Amendment. In fact, virtually ANY social program instituted by Congress is Unconstitutional. Whether it would benefit the citizens or not, is not the issue. If Congress feels strongly about it, they should follow the proper Constitutional law, and proceed with the Amendment route.

Putin Warns US About Socialism
Russian Prime Minister Vladamir Putin has said the US should take a lesson from the pages of Russian history and not exercise “excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state’s omnipotence”. “In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute,” Putin said during a speech at the opening ceremony of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.” Sounding more like Barry Goldwater than the former head of the KGB, Putin said, “Nor should we turn a blind eye to the fact that the spirit of free enterprise, including the principle of personal responsibility of businesspeople, investors, and shareholders for their decisions, is being eroded in the last few months. There is no reason to believe that we can achieve better results by shifting responsibility onto the state.”
Recession may ground space flights
President-elect Obama will have to decide the fate of the costly U.S. space program amid a global recession and skyrocketing deficits. Obama faces a decision at the end of April on whether to continue the Space Shuttle initiative, which NASA otherwise plans to shut down.
the U.S. is moving closer to a Nazi-style totalitarianism, warns a former German member of the Hitler Youth in a new book. "Every day brings this nation closer to a Nazi-style totalitarian abyss," writes Hilmar von Campe, now a U.S. citizen, and author of "Defeating the Totalitarian Lie: A Former Hitler Youth Warns America."

I think the real point is that there were some people out there who saw though Obama's schtick four years ago; were not completely blinded by his vacuous promises of "hope" and "change"...and that if people don't learn from what he has now actually done - they are going to get 4 more years of the same (or worse).

Otherwise you are just being belligerent and side stepping the fact that you made NO predictions! Is your name Al Gore? Next you will be telling everyone that 2013 will come and you predicted that!
