    Obamacare opens the door for the government to regulate anything and everything - including people...

    The power and "back doors" for the government to legislate and control the people has not even been realized yet by the majority. The type of powers Obamacare grants to the government is similar to the Patriot Act.

    A lot of people don't understand that Obamacare has absolutely NOTHING to do with healthcare and EVERYTHING to do with CONTROL of the people. Our government will use Obamacare as a tool to ban, regulate and control the people via dictation and they will do it claiming "healthcare costs" -- of course their goal is to dictate the economy with their bans and regulations (dictated economy er socialist economy)....

    It's amazing how people cannot see this.....
    They cannot see, or refuse to get, the point.

I'm sure he would run the U.S. like a large corporation looking for profits. Reward everyone at the top handsomely (the real workers in his eyes), cut costs (the middle class), and eliminate waste (everyone who is weak and vulnerable). This is all well and great for the top 20% but what about the rest of the people?

    That's a bit hyperbolic, don't you think? I was more alluding to the fact that many Democrats swear allegiance to the people but are beholden to the same business interests as Republicans not to mention many of them are bought.

    Overall I think far more Democrats genuinely have the interest of the general people as opposed to Republicans that almost exclusively cater to the wealthy and powerful.

    So what if he made a goofy comment? So dd Barrack Obama, and all the other candidates. If you commit the country to a certain course because of a foolish, and private, comment where does the country go? The statement was also true btw, which doesn't seem to matter.

    You are trapped in this class warfare game and one that will only do long term harm to the country. We see the middle class shrinking because government is growing far more than necessary to run a healthy society. When that much money is sucked out of the the people to support a government they can't afford then the middle class will always be the first to suffer. Call it trickle up poverty if you will.

    There is little evidence of that claim. Quite the opposite in fact, but one that the Democrats have certainly sold well.

    When enough of the electorate feel that the interest of the people lies in increasing welfare rolls, food stamps, and dependency on the government then it might be time to start working on our 'The End is Nigh' signs.

    You're saying the Republicans do NOT cater to the rich?

    So if we roll back all the services to the people, what do you think would happen?

    Services to the people? Did you mean freebies for some people?

    Strange logic, you defend him making a "goofy" statement that he didn't really mean then you go on to say it was true anyway which would indicate you agree with it and probably he does too...?

    I'm trapped in class warfare because the people lost, a long time ago, and it is only getting worse. You advocate exacerbating wealth inequality yet I'm the one waging the war?

    What exactly constitutes "big government"? Health care and military makes up 2/3rds of the budget.

    "Some of you guys"? When a poster types about services in the context as written, what the hell do you think they mean? Those are not services, they are freebies plain and simple. I'm sorry if that is outside of your grasp of the post to which I responded...
