"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)
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Some Con wonk in here was quick to make a big CON game out of Matt Damon's movies as failures- the movie Eylsium was the latest example in this CONs rant. But the movie had only had limited release at the time... NOW that movie was a success for the investors, but of course the CON has moved on to a new CON game...
So Con wailing over the ACA being a failure in less than a month... spare me....
Now show me where a private sector economy can withstand a 138% inflation in cost in one vital part when the rest of the economy has around 28%????
If it was food, which the government maintains quite a 'heavy' hand in keeping costs down, skyrocketing 138%- few would demand 'free market' solutions...
There are a large number of reports that show government managed healthcare is far less costly and gives superior results in many parts of medical care. NO system is 100% successful.
Obama and Democrats agreed that if Obamacare was not funded the USA would be obliterated totally, so they shut down the government. The media agreed that the USA will be totally destroyed and USA and world economy would collapse. Fortunately, Republicans finally agreed not to destroy America.
Now millions and millions of anarchist Americans are trying to erase the USA from earth by refusing to sign up. This nation and the world has never faced a greater crisis in all known history.
Obama should immediately declare martial law. Anyone who has not fulfilled the requirements of Obamacare should be interned and anyone who does not pay their premium arrested and prosecuted for treason. The fate of the USA and the entire world depends upon full implementation and compliance with the Affordable Care Act. We can't allow anarchists to destroy everything and everyone!
What is not extremist about your ideas is that the teabagger movement is destroying your country and if that doesn't get the attention of the average American then it has to be because your people have become so braindead that they don't deserve a free and democratic country that takes it's place in the modern world.
