    Iacoca was the kind of CEO who succeeded by farming the government rather than by running his company efficiently. He's a blood sucking parasite.

    Government shifted those costs onto private hospitals and private insurance companies.

    Nope. The author of the article said that, not Henry Ford. When you see something Henry Ford actually said it will have these (") thingies on either side of it.

    Unfortunately, the left is abysmally ignorant. Drones reciting mantras who lack the capacity of thought.

    {The Fascist conception of the State is all-embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value. Thus understood, Fascism is totalitarian, and the Fascist State--a synthesis and a unit inclusive of all values--interprets, develops, and potentiates the whole life of a people. (p. 14)

    Fascism recognises the real needs which gave rise to socialism and trade-unionism, giving them due weight in the guild or corporative system in which diverent interests are coordinated and harmonised in the unity of the State. (p.15)} - Benito Mussolini.

    Fascism is the incorporation of the central government with corporations. Where government decides trends and production goals, with business executing to the requirements of the state.

    Obama's fascist care is exactly that, fascist. It is the merger of corporate interests and the state. Fascist care literally entangles well connected corporations such as Blue Cross and Kaiser with the state, making the IRS the bill collector and setting the production goals for these psuedo-private concerns by the federal government.

    Look, you're an Obamabot - you lack the IQ points to grasp even rudimentary concepts, relying on emotion to drive your worship of Obama. But terms have meanings to the sentient beings.

    Yawn.

    Your little world revolves around "my god is better than yours." And no sparky, the Reagan administration did not propose state run health care. You are fouling your hating points again, taking an old Cato article and trying to shove it up Reagan's ass.

    So be our teacher and tell us how it works.
    And if you use terms such as "efficiency" or "lowers cost", I will know you haven't a clue.

    Okay folks, let's drag this train back onto the tracks. It should be the focus of every American who wants to get our economy back on track and start reversing some of the damage that has been done over the past three years.

    Now I ask you. How was Obama's "You didn't build that" speech any different than the satricial spoof in this You Tube clip?

    I just did answer your lack of knowledge on the 2 lies you posted. And instead of hitting the 'Quote' button, you cut that part of my answer out.

    yes but our liberals imagine themselves to be good fascists.

    We see what BS it is when we read that 70% of Barry's Solyndra green energy money went to his bundlers, not to those who had the best shot at new green energy products!!

    Anyone more interested can read "Liberal Fascism" for 400 pages of it. Here are some quote from the book.

    W.E.B DuBois: (the most important black leader in the first half of the 20th Century) "Joseph Stalin was a great man; few other men of the 20th Century approach his stature. The formation of the Nazi dictatorship was absolutely necessary to get the state in order." In 1937 he proclaimed: "there is today more democracy in Germany than there has been in years past." (page 10)

    -Guy Tugwell: (FDR Brain Trust) said of fascism: "It's the cleanest, neatest piece...of social machinery I've ever seen." ( page 11)

    -Walter Lippman: called on FDR to be a "dictator." (page 11)

    -Father Coughlin: "capitalism is doomed" (138)

    -Nazi newspaper: described Roosevelt as a man of irreproachable, extremely responsible character and immovable will... with a profound understanding of social needs...with nationalist socialist strains of thought in his economic and social policies" ( page 147)

    -Jonah Goldberg: "in the 1960's Mao Tse-Tung's Little Red Book of revolutionary maxims became a best seller in America"

    -Irving Louis Horowitz: "Fascism will return to the United States not as right wing ideology but almost as a quasi-leftist ideology" (page 198)

    -John F Kennedy: "political labels and ideological approaches are irrelevant to the solution of today's challenges" ( page 211)

    -Jonah Goldberg: "The Marxist explanation of Fascism was that it was the capitalist ruling classes' reaction to the treat of the ascendancy of the working class." (page 223)

    -Sidney Webb: "no socialist eugenicist can be a Laissez Faire individualist... the result is this country gradually falling to the Jews and Irish" (page 249)

    -H.G. Wells: "eugenics must be the central tenant of any true successful socialism" (page 249)

    -Jonah Goldberg: "George Bernard Shaw was not only an ardent socialist but totally committed to eugenics" (page 249)

    -John Maynard Keynes: "eugenics is the most important significant..and genuine branch of sociology" (page 250)

    -Harold Laski: ( friend to FDR and other American Democrats) "Socialists have to inculcate that spirit which would give offenders against the state short shrift and the nearest lampost" (page 251)

    -Charles Van Hise: "we know enough about eugenics so that if the knowledge were applied the defective classes would disappear within a generation" (page 256)

    -Jonah Goldberg: "when the Nazi took over they replaced the traditional infrastructure of the state and churches with a Nazi monopoly on charity" (page 267)

    -Jonah Goldberg: "Mein Kamph is replete with attacks on dividend hungry businessman whose greed, ruthlessness and short sighted narrow mindedness were ruining the economy. The Nazi Party labor union threatened to put business leaders in concentration camps if they didn't increase workers' wages" (page 288)

    -Fortune Magazine: "the corporate state is to Mussolini what the New Deal is to Roosevelt" (page 293)

    -Foreign Affairs: "The Italian (fascist) system treated workers better" ( page 295)

    -Adolf Hitler: "Christianity will disappear from Germany just it has done in Russia" (page 365)

    -Lawrence Tribe (Harvard Law School): religious views were inherently superstitious and hence less legitimate then secular ones" (page 366)

    So then, if you were surprised to discover that American Democrats had a natural love affair with Communism, Socialism, and Fascism you have to wonder why. Was it due to your own failings or perhaps a liberal conspiracy in the schools and media to keep the information from you, or both. In any case, if you are still tempted to imagine that the caring, big gov't programs you support could not possibly lead to the horrors of Mussolini, Hitler, and Stalin then you have to wonder how it is that Jefferson knew they would - 150 years earlier. What exactly did Jefferson know. Simple: he knew men and he knew human history. But, despite his wisdom, and the country he gave us base on that wisdom, the Democrats made the 20th Century the bloodiest of all centuries. Try to imagine what would be left of the world if Jeffersonian Republicans hadn't been there the whole time as the last best hope for freedom on earth.
