    Obama is all about genderbaiting identity politics bull****, special privileges for women to kill their own kids, and everyone being forced to pay for birth control pills for individuals who want them to personally consume. This barbarism is hardly progress, it is regression.

    I've come to expect this, and I disagree with this premise of calling Marx a fool, has he himself did not like what men like Stalin and the french revolutionaries were taking his ideas as, as he himself would never consider himself a "marxist" as it was being used. I look to him as a philosopher, his contributions to sociology, as an economist and his contributions of relating labor and its relation to capital, along with various other contributions to economic thought. Let's not forget he was also a revolutionary socialist who relayed prevalent ideas for living in the 1800's, heck, many consider him one of the architects of modern social science, and his ideas are influential on labor unions, political parties, and socialist thought.

    Cruz is being criticized for buying through an exchange even though the law does not require him to do so. He can buy a plan on his own directly from an insurer.
    Oh, so he shouldn't use the exchange. Why? Because he wants to replace it? That's just silly if you ask me.

    "Women's rights" in this case refers to a women's right to get an abortion, easy access to birth control..

    No such right exists to kill your own kid. As I said, not progress, but regression to barbarism.

    And when you say "access" like most of your ilk you mean to make us all buy **** for someone else, which is also unconscionable. The consumer of such a product should be the one who buys the product.

    Again, this is just a tyrannical central authority taking from the peasantry what they want and dispensing it per their whim... regression to the governmental failures of the past and further descent into barbarism.

    Now I'm reading he Did have other Choices:

    Ted Cruz, who once spent 21 hours filibustering Obamacare, may sign up for Obamacare - Vox



    So, if the above is correct, and I believe it is, he could have signed up for Cobra quite easily, and unless the campaign goes unexpectedly well, he could Then have tried O'care, or Private.
    O'care was just Cheaper I guess.
    Is that Not a sell out of principles?
    It's not a sell out. He's subjecting himself to the law that his body of government forced on the rest of us

    This isn't the thread to debate abortion, as a fetus is not a kid, but again, that's another point. When I say access, I mean support for birth control under health plans or abortion clinics that are easily accessible to women without insane regulations. Viagra, anybody?
