Sure looks like Obama care is going to pass, the final nail in the coffin is about to be pounded in.

Now.. the government can easily finish up the control of all aspects of American life and freedoms. A proud moment for some, a nightmare for most..

The end of the "American Dream"..

Since the early 19th century, the United States has regarded and promoted itself as a beacon of liberty and prosperity achieved through a combination of the philosophical and ethical principles propounded by its founders and implemented in their most perfect form. In tandem with this is its natural wealth and bounty within the New World.

The meaning of the "American Dream" has changed over the course of history. While historically traced to the New World mystique — the availability of land and the continuing American expansion — the ethos today simply indicates the ability, through participation in the resonant society and culture of the United States, to bring prosperity to oneself. According to the dream, this includes the opportunity for one's children to grow up and receive an American education and its consequent career opportunities. It is the opportunity to make individual choices without the restrictions of class, caste, religion, race, or ethnic group.

Oscar Wilde had the following advice for the Democrats:

“There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.”

And more...

James Truslow Adams coined the phrase "American Dream" in his 1931 book Epic of America:
“ The American Dream is that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for every man, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement. It is a difficult dream for the European upper classes to interpret adequately, and too many of us ourselves have grown weary and mistrustful of it. It is not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position.[7] ”

He also wrote:
“ The American Dream, that has lured tens of millions of all nations to our shores in the past century has not been a dream of material plenty, though that has doubtlessly counted heavily. It has been a dream of being able to grow to fullest development as a man and woman, unhampered by the barriers which had slowly been erected in the older civilizations, unrepressed by social orders which had developed for the benefit of classes rather than for the simple human being of any and every class.

Their arrogance will be their undoing. They may gloat now, but the "stupid masses" will have the final say on election day. All of the sweet deals given to those who must know they are trading their seats in definance of the will of the people, will eventually be left with a bitter taste in their mouths.

Your paranoia has much more control over your tiny mind than Obama ever could, even if it were possible and even if he, for some stupid reason, wanted to. Must be exhausting living is so much fear.

"Stupid masses"? Republicans are hardly the "stupid masses". Their numbers keep dwindling every day.

This is like backslapping the Nazi's who turned the knobs in the gas chambers and killed millions of Jews.

I heard there were something like 30 million Yanks not covered by insurance. Are they covered now?
