    lets start there, comrade.
    I see no problem going back to the prebush tax cut rates. We did fine under them. I personally have no problem with a single payor system system as it would take it out of the workplace, allowing business to better compete with the rest of the world, who mostly have a universial payor (and most are not socialist). And no one is dicitating how much workers are paid, outside of minimum wage, which isn't new.

    Again, nonthing there is socialism.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Brace yourselves!

    Karl Rove is worried about Sarah Palin for the same damn reasons the Leftists are worried about with her.

    She is a very pretty, experienced politician, she does not back down, or back off in the face of name calling, lies, and general character assassination, and to top it off Sarah Palin does her own thinking since the 08 election and the Karl Roves know they are not going to be able to tell he what to think, or believe.

    And the waste thing of all she's a Mom and has been in a grocery store and lived within a budget, and actually has many years of decision making experience that far exceeds Obama's deciding what telephone pole to tack up SEIU or ACORN posters.

    And that about covers Obama's abilities, untill the last two years and in that time he has learned how to do the wrong thing every time.

    not backing down...strategy I think she is more savvy than people give her credit for. that and I'd totally do her.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    That's pretty much the only thing we'll agree on when it comes to Sarah Palin.

    No, it isn't.

    Socialism is an economic and political theory advocating public or common ownership and cooperative management of the means of production and allocation of resources.[1][2][3]

    Socialism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    so·cial·ism   /ˈsoʊʃəˌlɪzəm/ Show Spelled
    [soh-shuh-liz-uhm] Show IPA

    –noun
    1. a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

    Socialism | Define Socialism at Dictionary.com

    Many non-socailist countries have universal health care. Neither great Britian nor Canada are socalist countries for example. You simply misunderstand the definition of socialism.

    I dislike Obama because he appears to be some kind of idiot. That makes me a racist. If I'm a racist, you are a sexist.

    That's not "the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole." That is tax payors working together to solve a problem. Most of the world has some form of Universal payor, but most of the world is not socialist. You are confusing different things, and trying to make them the same. Just because we work together to fix some problems it doesn't mean we now a socialist country. Sorry, but it doesn't work that way. While we may never be a purely capitalistic country, and haven't been for decades and decades, we are not a socialism. Nor would a universal payor on health care make us one.
