    Democracy and Freedom Are On The March


    Will the GOP implode or get more hysterical? Hysterical? Yes. Did you see the GOP members on the floor after the vote on the health care bill? It is not flaming to call their rants and raves, hysterical.

    There will by a major implosion and the resultant loss in November if they keep the present policy of "Just say No"

    Democracy and freedom on the march? We have a new, third party here or what? Surely you don't correlate Democracy with Democraps?

    Want to try again?

    Yes, Gunny, when one party wins enough seats to have a majority, it makes the policy. That is democracy. And if those policies are really poor and destructuve, they pay for that in ensuing elections. As we saw in 2006 and 2008.

    It's not democracy when that party's delegates voted against the will of their constituents and nominated someone that lost that party's popular vote in the primaries.

    Do YOU want to try again? Collectively, y'all are batting a 1000. Perfect score. You haven't been right yet.

    Really? We now have a pretty much done deal on the Health Care Bill. And Financial Reform will be next. Cap and Trade? The Grayson Bill;

    This evening Alan Grayson, Orlando’s spectacular and effective fighter for ordinary working families in a Congress that overwhelmingly caters to wealthy and powerful special interests, introduced the most real and straight forward healthcare reform bill that’s come up so far. Unless Obama makes the House leadership kill H.R. 4789– a distinct possibility– this should pass the House more easily than anything that’s been proposed for healthcare reform so far. And I bet it could even win cloture in the Senate! His bill offers the opportunity for everyone in the country to buy into Medicare. “Obviously,” said Grayson, “America wants and needs more competition in health coverage, and a public option offers that. But it’s just as important that we offer people not just another choice, but another kind of choice. A lot of people don’t want to be at the mercy of greedy insurance companies that will make money by denying them the care that they need to stay healthy, or to stay alive. We deserve to have a real alternative… The government spent billions of dollars creating a Medicare network of providers that is only open to one-eighth of the population. That’s like saying, ‘Only people 65 and over can use federal highways.’ It is a waste of a very valuable resource and it is not fair. This idea is simple, it makes sense, and it deserves an up-or-down vote.”

    And you call that good, right? That;s what's wrong with you and your ilk. Mind your own business and take care of yourself ring a bell?

    No, you need a "daddy" -- Big Brother -- to wipe your ass because you can't handle the responsibility of YOU.

    Give your lips a rest, huh? Your party is fucking up any notion of democracy this nation ever had.
