    That's especially true of independent parties. They're all mostly moderate with one glaring extremist view. Either you follow that view or you discard the party. That's why most independent parties stand no chance. The only thing that separates most of them from each other is the one thing that chases the majority of people away.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Ridiculous. The constitution doesn't address universal health care in any way. There's nothing for or against it in that document just like there's nothing about electricity, the Internet, iPhones, or germ warfare.

    And Richard Nixon wasn't violating the constitution by trying to get universal health care.

    Is it true Republicans are an endangered species? Dude, I thought take a picture of the republican party while it still exists. It'll be a collectible one day.

    Please check out Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution and then cross-reference the Tenth Amendment. Assuming you can comprehend basic English, you should be able to determine how totally wrong you are in that statement for yourself.

    No, actual conservatives are an endangered species, being done away with religious retards who have stolen the term. Real conservatives understand separation of church and state.

    Universal health care is not covered in that part of the constitution or any other part. Neither is a system of national parts or NASA. It's simply not covered and is therefore left to us, not the founding fathers, to decide. No ridiculous misinterpretation of the constitution will change that.

    I agree. Today's Republicans are far right religious zealots/extremists, not conservatives.

    If you haven't heard this before, it might be an eye-opener...Nixon wasn't interested until he heard "less medical care, more profit". He never advocated for a "public option", he is one of the reasons we have the for-profit health care market that we have today, and why so many people can't afford health insurance or health care.

    We have seen the enemy and he is us.

    I know, those blasted conservatives have one philosophy and can not be any other. It's especially true given that certain people really dislike religion and consider their brand of conservatism, which doesn't have religion in it, to be the one true conservatism.
    Is that thick enough?

    I wish people would read more history before saying things like this.

    Conservatives want small government... the modern day Republican party hardly wants that, they're just as bad as the Democrats. Conservatives want government out of people's lives... the modern day Republican party hardly wants that, they're just as bad as the Democrats. Separation of church and state is enshrined in the Constitution. Let me know when you find either party supporting that. Both use religion as a force for kissing up to the voters.
