    It seems the hoi polloi of conservative Republicans and conservative independents are bereft of ideas. Never have I read a post from this class which suggests thought, all (and I'm not engaging in hyperbole) of their comments are negative.
    They, as a group, never define problems - though they always blame (fill in the blank, liberals, Democrats, progresssives, women, non-whites, immigrants, Muslims, Jews) and never accept responsibility for problems or errors.
    Typically they post the daily talking points, propaganda, lies, half-truths and rumors issued by leaders of the Republican Party (and The Dear Leader of the Republicans seems to be Rush Limbaugh).
    Just once it would be nice if someone, anyone, who defines themselve as a conservative would define a serious problems (such as health care) and suggest real world solutions.

    I am not a conservative but will nevertheless accept your invitation.

    Healthcare has been regulated by the government since 1840.

    But , in spite of that, it was substantially affordable before 1965, before the Medicare/Medicaid wet into effect.

    Accordingly, the answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind, ....get government at all levels the fuck out of healthcare


    Let the invisible hand of the FREE MARKET regulate healthcare or forever hold your peace and pay the consequences!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Typically they post the daily talking points, propaganda, lies, half-truths and rumors issued by leaders of the Democrat Party (and The Dear Leader of the Democrats is Obama).
    Just once it would be nice if someone, anyone, who defines themselve as a Liberal would define a serious problems (such as National Security or the Economy) and suggest real world solutions.

    Excuse , how much research did you do before posting that asinine response. Have you ever heard of the Federal Reserve Board? When was it established? What does it regulate?

    A real world solution to national security? That's pretty easy. Where are the threats, and why are we threatened? Once defined, enlightened leaders can structure a foreign policy appropriately. We can refrain from calling our adversaries evil, seek common goals and work towards peaceful and mutually beneficial solutions.
    You know, it's not as if a terrorist attack on our country was unexpected, it was the stuff of novels and made for TV movies for years before 9/11.
    George W. Bush did nothing to prevent 9/11 and his actions subsequently have only exacerbated terrorism world wide. Rather than strengthen our defenses, Mr. Bush has squandered them, along with the lives of over 4,500 members of our armed forces.
    Jingos, because that's what today's conservatives are, see the world through a very narrow lens, I suspect, because at their core they are scared. Fear of those who look different, worship a different way, fear of change, and especially fear of ideas that challenge them to question their beliefs.

    I couldn't agree with you more...
    Why do we keep giving tax breaks to the wealthy?
    Make them get off their azz and work for it

    Yeah, we did that after the first WTC attack.

    How'd that work out for us?
