    Re: Dr. Carson: Obamacare The Worst Thing That Has Happened Since Slavery

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Dr. Ben Carson slammed President Barack Obama’s signature health care during his speech at the Value Voter’s Summit Friday.

    “Obamacare is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,” Carson declared. “It is slavery in a way because it is making all of us subservient to the government.”

    Carson said the implementation of the Affordable Care Act was never about health care, only control.

    “That’s why when this administration took office it didn’t matter that the country was going off the cliff economically. All forces were directed toward getting this legislation passed,” Carson said.

    Carson also made a comparison between Obama’s health care law to former Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin.

    “Vladimir Lenin, one of the fathers of socialism and communism, said that socialized medicine is the keystone to the establishment of a socialist state,” Carson stated.

    So basically, nothing that refutes the comments of a historically illiterate person has anything to do with the thread. Right. Time to throw in the towel, big guy, unless you want to be known as one of "those conservatives." You know, the kind of conservative that the more respectable ones around here don't directly confront, exactly, but sure as hell don't associate themselves with either.

    Oh, more on the historically illiterate Dr. Carson: there is no source for his claim that “Vladimir Lenin, one of the fathers of socialism and communism, said that socialized medicine is the keystone to the establishment of a socialist state."

    Dr. Carson may know a thing or two about brain surgery, but as history goes he is a buffoon.

    Again. “Obamacare is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery".

    Can you see the part where he says "in this nation"??? World Wars I and II did not happen "in this nation".

    Maybe you can ask someone close by to explain it to you.

    What's so "disgusting" about it? It's rhetoric.

    So half a million American soldiers' deaths are irrelevant to you because they happened somewhere else. That's quite the moral position you've staked out there. I'm more than happy to let you hang your coat on that one.

    Ah. Well since you fabricated a phrase and attributed it to me (using quotation marks, no less!) I'm at something of a loss.
