Those voters, who vote for Democrats, desire to take that which they didn't earn and give it to people who don't earn. They are protecting their free handouts and welfare way of life. The growth of the parasite class is the goal of the Democrat party policies. They create a class that have to support Democrats, to keep getting their loot.
No, they are not misinformed. They judge the risk versus the reward. Do you carry end of the world insurance? Why not? It could happen. While an extreme example some people do, through having their bomb shelters a couple of years of food, guns, etc. There is always a risk, do you have yours? I don't. Why? I judge that it isn't likely in my lifetime. Of course, as the odds change, my reaction may change. As the young get older, and gain more responsibilities that come with marriage and family, they rethink the risk/reward and will get that health insurance, if not provided by their employer. You feel everyone should do things, as you do them. I believe, people should have the right to do foolish things, like drink adult beverages. However, if they do and an accident results, then the full weight of the law and financial compensation should be the cost. If you chose to risk medical problems in the future, because you want to not have insurance, and smoke, drink, over eat, etc. the it should be your financial responsibility alone. You live or die, by your own actions, that is freedom, being personally responsible for your decisions.
Yes we should have the right to take the risks, we as individuals chose to undertake. With your way of thinking man shouldn't have gone to the moon, as it is safer to remain on earth. Most things worth doing involves a certain element of risk. How much they want to engage in is up to the individual. I guess, you don't understand the difference between individual risk versus the rights of others to be protected by accidents caused by others. You seem to equate health insurance to auto insurance, which again show the inability to between pool insurance and individual insurance. I do agree it is a risk to go without health insurance, but it should be the choice of the individual, and his/her responsibility to pay the costs of his/her decision.
And what of yourself? You never seem to have anything intelligent to say, but hen thinking isn't a strong point of folks like you.
ROFLMAO, so you want the guns of the government to take over the healthcare industry. Well, that is the whole objective of what Obama is doing. Obama dictated the types of policies that the insurance companies had to issue. This is why millions of Americans, who like their policies, had them stolen from them by the guns of the government. To justify the idea that government could cut the costs of healthcare, the government made it necessary to vastly shrink the number of doctors and hospitals in the networks the companies offered. They turned most everyone into Medicaid healthcare patients. It is why the government cut back on what they paid for medical care resulting in the best doctors dropping out of the system and denying access to the best hospitals.. You see people like you are so stupid, that you believe you can add tens of millions of sick people (pre-existing conditions) to the rolls and reduce the number of doctors and hospitals in the networks, yet think you are improving healthcare. One law, dealing with this alone, could have been done by the Democrats. Of course, it would have increased healthcare costs as the insurance companies would have had to raise the rates significantly to cover the increased costs. That is the reality. However, Democrats not understanding reality believe they could be added and bring down costs by punishing the providers and the middle class taxpayers to pick up the bill. In the end, it will end up in bankruptcy for the insurance companies and the collapse of the healthcare system. That is the Obama and Democrat legacy, not to mention millions of dead Americans, before their time.
Maybe, they want to make decisions for themselves, instead of being dictated to by an increasingly intrusive and powerful government. Some may not like the idea that the government is stealing money from others to give it to people who didn't earn it. Maybe, they are the kind of Americans who built this nation by taking risks, calculating the odds and enjoy the challenges of running their own lives, the way they see fit, instead of the way people, like you demand they do. Maybe some people smoke because the LIKE to smoke, and know that it could kill them. After all, there are a lot of Democrats who ski, and people die in the process of doing something they enjoy. See people like you want to live as long as you can, even if that means your life isn't worth living. Others want to enjoy the time they have and do those things that they want to do, even if that shortens the time they have. If want to live, not just exist. I know, someone like you could never understand this idea. I know, you could never understand why Americans want to run their own lives instead of having the government tell them how to live. You believe in government dictated everything. I believe, as well as those you call stupid, want to make their own decision. You place security, brought to you by the guns of the state, to be more important than the freedom, which requires you take responsibility for your own life. In other words, it is what makes Americans, Americans versus being a European. You wish to make us Europeans and to destroy what makes us Americans.
Why do you think the leadership of the Democratic party is sooooo concerned about the results of a district that the board leftwing posters claim isn't a swing district in the Congressional races? Maybe the Democratic party leaders know a lot more about the facts, than the board Democrats.
ROFLMAO when it comes to pure hatred, Democrats are the party of lies, liars and hatred that ranks with the worst haters of history. You are a perfect example of that hate. I don't hate Obama. I hate his policies and his total lack of respect for the "Rule of Law" and the Constitution. Your hate for Bush was just as great as some have shown on this board towards Obama. So there is no difference between them and you. Democrats have shown their hatred for the military so many times since the `1950s. You obviously hate the American people,, as you are robbing millions of them of their healthcare insurance. You hate Americans who have come together to express their opposing views to your big government agenda. You believe that the American people are so stupid and child like that they can do nothing without the Democrat controlled government to do it for them. No my friend, the Hate is spewing forth, mostly from your side, with some from ours. Still, maybe when you learn to tell the truth, and become more learned on the issues, you will understand.
With Congress, it is lower than the Obama ratings. However, Florida's election may indicate big trouble ahead for the Democrats in 2014. After all,, Obama is so terrified of his own healthcare bill, that he keeps issuing imperial decrees, delaying the parts that finance the whole thing and delaying the loss of millions more insurance policies of the average American voter. Why? Because even the Democrats now know, but are covering up the truth, that Obamacare is a total and complete disaster.
Reuters news agency is reporting that Democrats, after the defeat of Sink, in the Florida special election, are seeking ways to limit the damage of Obamacare to their party. Funny how the leftwing crowd on this board tried to deny the defeat of Sink meant anything at all. The leadership of their own party knows better. After all, this is why Obama has been unconstitutionally altering an already passed law, for the political benefit of the Democratic party. Of course, each change costs taxpayers billions as he prevents the "so called" economics of Obamacare to collapse for political gain and to hide the truth from the American people, until after the election cycle.
Why are you hanging around? You and your numerous IDs? If you don't like my posts, place me on ignore. After all the Democratic party is the party of censorship of political thought. If you place me on ignore, you will never seen my messages, as I have only one name. The fact is Democrat can never argue the facts and they hate the truth. Such is the things that make totalitarians. Democrats are the party of ever increasing government, which the only logical end is a totalitarian state, where all power rests at the top. It is also a state where constitutions mean nothing and the "Rule of Whim" has replaced the "Rule of Law", as we are seeing in the Obama WH.
Funny, you don't seem to say the same thing about all the liberals, who have been on these boards for a generation, but unlike me they use ,more aliases than any con artist in prison. I wonder how many hours you spend watching TV or not improving your mind? Since you attack me based on time, and are unable to discuss, in a coherent or logical manner the issues? I imagine, it would surprise a dullard like yourself to know I spend more time with kids than their parents do. I am sure that care a lot more what happens to their future than any Democrat, or establishment Republican. They care only for power and buying votes, by undermining all things that made this nation great. I think you will find that most of the leftwing posters here spend a lot more time on this board than I do. I pop on and answer a few posts then gone. Yet the left and others on the right are here all day long and most of the night. Many keep logging in with there numerous aliases, of whom you might be one..
By the way, social justices is just another alias for power grabbing by the government, at least now days. What are your kind going to do, when you run out of money to loot? It is obvious that you hate the young just all Obama supporters hate the young. You and Obama are going to leave them with a twenty trillion dollar national debt by 2016 and over 90 trillion in unfunded liabilities. Just so long as greed power freaks, like you and Obama can feel good about themselves. You and he never thought of using your own money to help others. You use the guns of the government to do that for you. Since none of you in the Democratic party have any knowledge of history, you don't know that your kind of thinking has failed over and over and over again. It is that legacy of disaster that you leave to the young people of this nation. Like I said, you and your party hate the young with a passion. I think, they are beginning to wake up to that fact. If they do, then it is bye Dems.
Ah another typical Democrat. By the way, I have never even tasted any adult beverage. Unlike yourself and your entire drunken, drug using Democratic party, I believe in living in the real world, not one created by the destruction of your brain with drugs or alcohol. You might want to try rehab yourself.
As usual you are a low information Democrat., you know so little of history, ours or others. In 1936 Hitler ordered the remilitarization of the area west of the Rhine river. This was not allowed by the Treaty of Versailles. The troops were given orders to retreat, if the French actively move into the Rhine valley, to enforce the treaty terms. That would have made Hitler look like a fool ad would have impressed on him that the West was determined to enforce the Treaty of Versailles. France didn't, as England refused to back up the French. (France had a bigger army than the Germans, more tanks, more planes. Still France and England didn't stand up for the treaty. It convinced Hitler that the West was weak and he could follow his plan of aggression. Then came the formal announcement of German rearmament, which was already going on. This was also a violation of the Versailles Treaty. Again France objected, but wouldn't act without England. The English didn't agree to action and France backed down. Then came Austria, Sudetenland, etc. If they had forced Hitler to back down in 1936, there would have been, most likely, no WWII. You don't stop wars by giving in to the aggression of others. You only encourage further aggression, until war is the only option left to save you.
Churchill was one of the first in England to see Hitler for what he really was. He continually denounced Hitler and urged that a stand be taken early on to stop him. He was a lone voice in this. He saw the right of it, long before the war, but was viewed with disdain by his own party.
Maybe because, politics is the most important thing to argue, if you want a better life for those who will come after you. I could be as selfish, as you, and not care about young Americans and the loss of their heritage of freedom to a government that continues to expand its power into the affairs that were left for the American people to handle for themselves. Besides,, unlike the liberal posters, I still work for a living, instead of being a parasite living off the work of others, like liberals do. If we keep going the way we are, young Americans will be carrying a burden that will crush them financially. Don't forget, it is estimated that by the time Obama leaves office, the national debt will be somewhere around twenty trillion dollars. It is so sad how little you care and the left cares about the future of the young. I deal young people five days a week, they are increasingly concerned about their future. If you look at the numbers, they are turning against the Democrats, as they slowly realize it is their future that is being destroyed.
You really should study the Danish solution to unemployment compensation. For a generation they gave five years of payments to those who lost their jobs. The Danes began to study the program a number of years ago. They discovered something interesting. The vast majority of Danes didn't find a job till the five years were up. Then, they found jobs and went back to work. So the Danish government went from five to four years. They saw the same patter and cut it back to three years. Last I heard they are at two years. Seems people find jobs, but only when they are not paid, by the state, to not work. They may not get the jobs of their dreams, but they are no longer leaching off the taxpayers for years.
Spoken like a true totalitarian. By the way which of the Great Lakes Bulkers did they recently find in the western side of Lake Superior, that had been lost since early in the 20h Century?
