"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
Ah, you're extrapolating my thoughts on one issue to another. That's like saying that you can't support abortion if you don't support the death penalty. Stick to Trayvon Martin threads joko. You can at least repeat your arguments in those threads ad nausea to the acclaim of other people who barely understand logic.Your logic does not work. When Obama says people are entitled to health care, by your logic the correct response is that a person is not entitled to health care, rather they have a right to go to the doctor and obtain health care - but they actually have to go to the doctor or hospital themselves. A person has a right to pursue health care, but they are not entitled to health care coming to them. Or such nonsense as your message defenses are.
Why your messages are hackery is that you don't just give the reasonable response of "Obama could have worded that better. What he clearly meant was..." Instead, you go to Ron Paul's self reliance hard stances and defend those. Your messages in toto show that Obama's words are the omniscient words of your god, for which you will rationalized god-goodness and truth as defense. That appears what you are doing in your messages on this thread.
In real terms, a person is entitled to success and a person is entitled to pursue success really means the same thing in real terms.
The best part is your contradiction though. I'm partisan about this even though I'm supposedly, according to your weak understanding of basic American axioms using Ron Paul's rhetoric, Republican rhetoric, to defend a Democrat about a claim Republicans themselves support.
Do you not realize yet how weak your argument sound?

I would think that what that phrase would mean is all people, but I really do not understand how politics that is in many ways designed to separate people be it the belief in the progressive income tax system or the belief in welfare programs can ever hope to make such a claim and be honest about it, but I'm sure someone can help me along on that one.

Of course, that pathological liar Romney probably would say they injected cash and credit and restructured the company to pull it back from bankruptcy that so many other retailers were going thru, but that can't be it given how purely evil Romney is. That's the reason he wants to be president too. As president he can destroy the most people possible to try to satisfy his bloodlust.

Do you have any actual response to my point that your defense is your arguing that apples aren't apples? That there is no real difference between being entitled to success and entitled to pursue success - just as there is no difference between being entitled to air and entitled to pursue breathing air - to a person in air.
