    Yes, but that doesn't make his assessment of the state of our nation accurate.

    I've heard this stupid analogy being made by many people - mostly from those who don't like ObamaCare - and I think to myself, "These folks can't be serious!?!"

    Slavery held only certain people in bondage due to the color of their skin. Not everyone was held back from having an opportunity to progress in life or within this country because of the color of their skin. So, that's the first problem with Dr. Carson's slavery analogy.

    Second, slavery was a socio-economic way of life for country, but only those who lived in the south benefitted the most from it. If you lived in the north, you only benefitted from the indirect revenue the slave trade brought in, i.e., slave imports and subsequent sales (but only by the slave traders and shipping merchants themselves); molasses, rum, tobacco, tea exports. The south benefited from the direct revenues slavery brought in mostly in agriculture, but also in their domestication and in some cases the local sales of slaves. It was the reciprocal earnings from crops that drew the biggest ire from those on the side of pro-slavery. They worried their entire economy (not to mention their entire way of life) would be severely disrupted if slavery were abolished. No slaves, no farming. No slaves, no carriage drivers for wealthy plantation owners. No slaves, no domestic hands to clean their homes, cook their meals, wash their clothes, or babysit their children. And that's just naming those tasks the history books showcase for the typical "house nigga".

    To suggest that the health care law is anything like the fight to preserve slavery in any way is so ridiculous even calling such an analogy "ridiculous" doesn't quite explain the ridiculousness of it all. Now, if you want to say this country hasn't had an issue so deeply divide both sides of our political system nor the country so widely, then I can certainly see the argument. But to compare ObamaCare to slavery is just ignorant. No one is oppressing you because you have to have health insurance.

    I don't think it is an official accolade. But it is my opinion based on his speeches.

    It was equal in thought and accuracy to the article in the OP.

    Not relevant, the OP claims Obama is the worst thing since slavery all I have to do disprove that is show things worse than Obamacare that occurred after slavery. Who was in office means nothing.

    No, it isn't that bad and the analogy is quite idiotic. He may be a great surgeon, however, calling Obamacare the worst thing since slavery is quite moronic. What's next, a reference to Hitler? Gimme a break. Obamacare is a lousy law, but it isn't the worst thing since slavery.

    Do we know communism, in the real world and outside of just theory, to be anything but slavery?
    Medicare is socialized medicine, so if you support Medicare you support slavery?

    This is what you're saying?

    I am trying to put a good handle on just what to call that mini rant of silly notions/positions...would those "thoughts" be classified racists positions or maybe implied-tokenist postions, or diverse-if-you-think-like-I-doisms...or what exactly?

    While willingly conceding that you may genuinely have more familiarity with true nuts, I think most reasoning folk would be hard put to call Dr. Carson a nut... if that were so, better get your blind donkeys to start rutting around for one anywhere near as effective...

    Only a nutcase thinks Obamacare is the "worst thing since slavery."
