    Not if my duty is to protect their rights and liberties.

    I didn't, but there is something to be said about people like him. They argue for expanding the domain of force outside of protecting the rights and liberties of the people. I can't work with people like him.

    TBH, isn't this just like Romney's "I like to fire people"
    Something that when takes out of context seems scandalous and controversial, but when viewed in context makes sense and is roughly aligned with their respective beliefs.

    I think we can safely state is Obama went overboard with the rhetoric and screwed up. Will this sink his campaign? I think not. Campaign gaffe tend not to stick.

    1- interesting that you do NOT deny the characterization of your style and tactics.

    3- and that gets us right back to you making statements buy NOT backing them up with evidence. Thank you for testifying against yourself.

    Haymarket -tell us what evidence has ever backed up your claims that the rich don't pay their fair share or that its right for income to be subjected to a heavily progressive income tax and the current schedule for investment income is unfair to the public

    Also, it was 20 out of 43 GOP Senators. So while you pretend like it was one lone rogue GOPer, it was actually nearly half of the Senate's GOP. And the Republican sponsored bill died in committee, not because it didn't have GOP support but because it didn't have enough Democrat support in the Democrat-led Senate.

    Despite your failed attempts to dismiss the mandate as the Republican plan, that's exactly what it was. It was the GOP's idea for healthcare to counter Clinton's ideas for Healthcare. Neither went anywhere, but please, don't even try to pretend that the mandate wasn't a GOP idea. Hell, it's the same plan that [Republican] Mitt Romney passed in Massachusetts.
    How many of the house was it? Did the Republicans push it to the floor in the form of an act to be voted on? Or did they just talk about it?
