    And, finding a good job became a problem as soon as Bill Clinton left the White House, if you want to play the partisan card.
    LOL. You are in way over your head. Take a chill pill or something and try to figure something out.

    What do you mean "no such action?" Law enforcement and military bases are already paid for by taxpayers. Those costs are already born by the public. There wasn't any security hole left open by private industries to fill. What sort of equivalent action are you envisioning as a response to Ft. Hood or Boston?

    Different situations, different responses. Is there some reason you think it has to be one response fits all?

    Socialism is failing all over the world. Their European medical systems are bankrupt, inefficient and corrupt (like The Clinton Foundation). We were idiots to follow their socialist schemes because they have put us into humungous debt and made us less competitive... er... translation... it costs us jobs.

    It's insane to copy failure. What's that old chestnut? Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    I guess our Amerikan Sozialists thought they were more skilled than our European failures. WRONG! Socialism never works because it's fundamentally flawed.

    I don't think much of Reid. He's another devious crook that's screwing the US. But I'll take him at his word for this just as I believed him when he was speaking for the Demokrat Party when he said "This war is lost."

    It the real world, he's right that it should not be seen as the end of the effort. And while I would strongly support a move toward a single payer system. Tat said, just wanting us to do the right thing doesn't mean we will. So lets not get too hyperbolic. I mean if you can refrain.
    ObamaKare was always seen as the first step towards single payer... and Libs here tried to deny it. I bet I could go back and find most active Libs here doing it... including you.

    The equal protection clause of the 14th amendment for one. Once you establish a precedent the victims of "terror" are "special" it is hard to get that toothpaste back into the tube. What is the difference, thta you see, between a terrorist killing you with an airliner, gun or bomb?

    Please provide me a success story on single payer anywhere in the world? Britain? Canada? Like all liberal social programs they sound great until it gets around to implementation and management

    I love how libertarians can easily predict the end result of both RINO's and Progressives actions/legislation yet both political parties call "bull****" then argue amongst themselves when the predictions come into fruition...

    The Tea Party and libertarians told you so....

    Every President has redistribution goals of wealth. Bush did it by redistributing it to the wealthy. You didn't complain then did you? As for government ownership, you need to learn what "ownership" means. Also, social equity doesn't equate to Socialism.
