    Liberal Thought #7

    Progressive / Democrat goody two-shoes spending programs on a federal level that prop people up, including Medicaid, need to end.

    If the American Marketplace sees its children selling Chiclets Gum on the streets to pay for a baby brothers operation and does nothing, so be it.

    I've actually seen that, turdblossum. Are we to return to that kind of backwards thinking?

    Are you saying:

    1) Progressives/Democrats want Medicaid-type programs to end?

    2) Progressives/Democrats think conservatives want Medicaid-type programs to end?

    3) Medicaid-type programs should end?

    Anyway, I'm a liberal and I don't want medicaid to end. Medicaid is jointly funded by state and federal governments and administered by the states, so it's somewhat misleading to refer to it as "federal level".

    That's the risk to liberal thinking: Responsibility.

    Responsibility for ones self and responsibility for our species.

    Plus the fact that we pay into it our entire working lives.

    Only as a forward looking project response to a focus on education opportunities, fair and simple taxes and a budget that is balanced by law.

    Getting our kids on a road that leads to the stars is NOT rocket science!

    I'm saying that liberal thinking demands responsibility. Responsibility for self and responsibility for community.

    Federal medicaid doesn't work. The job of the federal government is to help the states to buy in bulk and to educate. It's time the states were free to take care of their own or not and its also time the states had the freedom to compete for industry or not, while insuring industrial responsibility.
