    So the democrats pass health care and it supposedly is an awesome triumph for The One and the rest of the socialists. Everybody knows what a disaster it will be, which only leaves one thing left to do - blame the republicans for it.

    WASHINGTON – Republicans were for President Barack Obama's requirement that Americans get health insurance before they were against it.

    The obligation in the new health care law is a Republican idea that's been around at least two decades. It was once trumpeted as an alternative to Bill and Hillary Clinton's failed health care overhaul in the 1990s. These days, Republicans call it government overreach.

    Mitt Romney, weighing another run for the GOP presidential nomination, signed such a requirement into law at the state level as Massachusetts governor in 2006. At the time, Romney defended it as "a personal responsibility principle" and Massachusetts' newest GOP senator, Scott Brown, backed it. Romney now says Obama's plan is a federal takeover that bears little resemblance to what he did as governor and should be repealed.

    Yep, now that it is nearly law and the train wreck is scheduled, it's time to blame the republicans for the health care bill.
  2. No informed conservative or libertarian believes the republicans have been defenders of the constitution and smaller govt but one would have to be mentally retarded to accept this as an excuse for the fascist takeover of the govt by democrats.
  3. we already have a facist gov, taken over by the rich. there are CEOs running whole departments.

    Don't mind index piker, he's just a blithering fool who'll call Democrats fascist in one breath and socialist in the next, and he'll remain utterly oblivious to the contradiction. Not much on intellectual consistency, these tea party nihilists.
  5. 1) The huge increase in the rate of change is not lost anyone with a clue.

    2) I fail to see where it's a class warfare issue.

    3) Your post gives the impression you have no clue what constitutes economic fascism.

    maybe you should educate yourself.

  6. A truly classic and noble statement of correction.

    Unfortunately most libtards are under some spell or delusion.
    They hate the truth ... nevertheless a little slam dunking is still needed.
  7. the evidence is right in front of you. the gov leaves communes alone because they are still in the economy and they dont have mineral rights. but a peasantry forms in Africa to get back their local wealth like oil and the gov asks their gov to crack down on them. and if a whole country thinks to become a commune and control all their own stuff, then our gov goes to war with them. or embargos, like Cuba.
  8. Both are authoritarian in nature and it only matters to the eggheads to try to draw absolute distinctions as if it mattered to those subjugated by such forms of govt.

    If one contemplates the daily life of the avg citizen under fascist Italy, Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia , North Korean dictatorship.

    Please eggheads differentiate between the different political/economic systems effect upon the avg citizen.

    Thanks , I'm sure your silence will be both deafening and instructive concerning the veracity of your arguments.
  9. you're right but you keep trying to blame the democrats. like that's the problem. to the extent they oppose the plutocrats I support them but I don't think they have a chance in hell. this country has been run by Rockellers and Duponts from long ago, they just hide their identity behind corps and shell corps and numbered corps now. as for the republicans they don't even pretend to oppose the rich much less do anything for the working man.
  10. 1) I thought we we talking about the US.

    2) I have no problem with voluntary communism and have personally lived under such a structure. The key difference is individual consent from each member which is exceptionally rare.

    3) Protection of property rights is the cornerstone of western civilization's success : get with the program or be left in the dust materially and morally.
