Obama was supposed to be a uniter and has since proven to be like Bush and be a divider. Given all the government problems with oversight do you REALLY want the government overseeing Obamacare?
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
ACA was voted on, not crammed
Obama was an idiot to believe the GOP wanted to work with him ... the divide was there and the only way he could unite, was to do everything the GOP wanted him to do (and even that probably wouldn't work when you consider how some in the GOP opposed things he proposed that they supported before he proposed it)
This in no way denigrades or disrespects the work that anyone else does - it's a matter of supply and demand - very few people can throw a football like Tom Brady - statistics will tell you that millions of people can be police officers, because there are millions of police officers - and there are probably tens of millions of other people who could be equally as good police officers but there aren't enough jobs.
If you think that millions of people doing a job that millions of people can do and are doing should be paid the same as the one person doing a job that only one or perhaps a limited few can do, then your view of labor and it's value is nuts and you're exactly the type of person I was talking about in my original post and the exact type of person who's the problem, not the solution.
Now, go give me the preachy, social bleeding hearted speech about how savings lives is more noble than throwing a football - it has zero to do with the labor market, period.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
Both sides have been playing political games at the expense of the voter.
yes, both parties play games, and Rand Paul scares the crap out of me, but what has happened to Obama, whom I'm not crazy about, is pretty unique ... but then again, as the Jackie Robinson of the presidency, we should not have expected it to be business as usual ...
