    @ FT:

    Another misinterpretation of the Constitution. Liberals like to think it's a living document that can be construed to mean whatever they want it to... especially in regard to fitting their political agenda.

    The first Amendment does give people (such as yourself) the right to say and do dumb things. I won't deny that... especially since you've already proven the point.

    And if you feel you must keep judging others, please try to do so with common sense and a bit of charity next time. Such characteristics help people to earn credibility with their fellow man... or with their fellow-readers in your case.

    @ FT:

    The First Amendment gives you and others the right to write and show stupidity. But nowhere does it give the right of passing erroneous judgment of others.

    But if you're going to anyway, please do so with less animus and more common sense next time. It would be a good way to eventually earn back a bit of credibility.

    "You are obviously judging your fellow Americans. Exactly what is it that gives you that right?"
    The First Amendment of the US Constitution.

    BTW: Left wing rants never make for good policy. Never.

    "Christians and forceful behavior is NOT Christian. Remember lucifer wanted to force people to do things, sounds like libs to me."
    Im not advocating forcing anyone to provide health care to the less fortunate. I'm just pointing out that so many American Christans are not offering help. Just saying we're not that country that so many right wing, religous radicals would like to think we are.

    Are we being ruled by a bunch of thieves?

    Is this what the founding fathers had in mind when forming this country?

    I always find it ironic that many Americans believe we are a Christan nation but when it comes to health care many certainly believe we are not our brothers keepers. The facts clearly show that the Western European countries with socialized medicine provide medical care at much less cost to ALL their citizens. Those are the same countries many right wing zealots call Godless and lazy.

    Nobody should be subsidizing anyone else. This whole thing is just one huge endless morass of socialism which will ensure that good money is utterly wasted for no discernible benefit and that all plans are made as lousy as they can possibly be made at the highest possible cost. This alone ought to dump the incumbents who voted for it. It's their fault and it's only going to get worse.

    Socialized health care is a failure. Even if the government was to nationalize all hospitals and doctors and nurses, the health care will still have the same outcome, useless and no good.

    Obama care is just an insurance tax that the governemnt keeps and spends. Non of the money that Obama/Romney plan acquires will be to provide health care. Not only does Obama not provide anything to our well being your assets and property become property of the federal government. When you embark on obamacare and use it for personal use it becomes a tax debt liability for the IRS after you die. In essence it eliminates family and charity inheriting a persons acquired wealth or property over their lifetime.

    The reason the IRS and HCA are linked is because of tax debts for using obamacare for health care services, HCA is a loan from the IRS to pay your medical bills making it a tax liability putting a secret lien on property of patients forever.

    Its the genius of Romney who invented this tax that isn't a tax until you die, Utah loves this plan for this reason tax debts recovery with undisclosed tax liens.

    And so the ongoing and never-ending issues with Obamacare continues. Sadly, based on it's short history, it will probably get worse before it gets any better.

    Subsidy is nothing more then money forcefully taken from someone without permission.

    I would go to jail if I took money from my neighbor and gave to someone in Kentucky, or used it to pay for my vacation. It would be called stealing. Theft!

    So, why do way allow our political leaders to do this, and now our country is seventeen trillion dollars in debt?

    Beside DavidO, who believes this is good?
