    Where Were You When the Republic Died?
    By Matt Patterson

    In November 2008, Americans elected a socialist as their president. In March 2010, they woke up stunned to find themselves living in a socialist country.



    Health insurers -- once private companies -- are now organs of the federal government. Every citizen is a ward of the state, which can now compel you to have insurance, punish you if you don't; determine if your insurance is acceptable, punish you if it isn't. Thousands of new federal bureaucrats will soon spill from the D.C. Beltway and flood the country, scrutinizing our finances to verify compliance with this new law.

    A government that grants itself this kind of power over us can conceivably do anything to us. For our own good, of course. Such a country is in no meaningful sense "free."

    I wasn't even born yet.. And neither were you.. It is called the end of the civil war.. And you lost.. Deal with it!! I am sorry you support such an antiamerican view and attitude..

    You dickweeds did this when Medicare passed and social security passed.. Sadly you had nothing to do with their passage either.. So what have you done?? Anything?

    Yep, and Bernake said all banks need to be under government control too:

    The Dodd bill would also give the Fed the power to break up big firms that could threaten the stability of the financial system if they get into trouble.

    Bernanke laid out a three-pronged approach favored by the Fed on how to tackle the problem of firms that are so big and interconnected that markets believe the government would step in if they faltered.

    The issue of moral hazard, or that expectations of government intervention encourages risky activities, became a subject of intense scrutiny as the global financial crisis escalated.

    "First, we develop and implement significantly tougher rules and oversight that serve to reduce the risks that large, complex firms present to the financial system," Bernanke said.

    The slippery slope is slipping away.

    I was on the phone making an appointment for a Colonoscopy for sometime in June of 2012, never hurts to be early, just in case. :lol:
