Plus, with the recent opinion by the high court (referenced by Obama in his SOU address), soulless and virtually immortal corporations (some with a large foreign shareholder base) will now be able to fund radio and TV propaganda that most voters will see as truth. Large corporate interests are the real social threat, not national health care. And for the record, Sen. Brown from MA announced that he would vote against the health bill because it would interfere with MA health care system, which is largely a carbon copy of the Senate bill. Most people weren't aware of this nationwide; instead is was a media frenzy by broadcasters (again the "corporation") saying it was a national stance or referendum on the issue. Brown answers to MA voters, not the US, and as 1 of 2 senators from the state, is going to protect his state's interests, not the country's, when it comes to national domestic affairs.
Socialist transformation of America? A guy tries to do a good thing that other free countries (Norway, Canada) enjoy fully -- national health care -- and he's transforming my right and ability to access health care in a socialist manner? Congress has such authority under the commerce clause, and the mandate to obtain and pay for it is no different than States which mandate liability insurance coverage for automobiles. It's nationalization of health care, not socialist (in the vernacular, as opposed to Marx's actual philosophy). If anything is making this country more "socialist," it's the mega-corporations, including the insurance industry, that lobby more strongly and with greater impact than the average voter actually maintains at the polls.
Are you planning to get involved in this year's Tea Party? They're hoping for 2 million + in DC alone! That'd be amazing.
Well, the Tea Party movement may be helpful in pushing for the most viable conservative candidate in each district.
Hopefully.......but in all honesty, how many of the Republican party are true conservatives? Bush didn't really do a single conservative thing.
The midterm congressional elections. Hopefully, the Republicans will take one or both houses and serve as a check on Obama
You mean the primaries?
Slightly? Even is she's a complete idiot as portrayed in the media, at least she wouldn't be actively pursuing the socialist transformation of America.
But I was referring to this year's elections.
Only if Ron Paul is elected. Pallin won't fix anything. She will be only slightly better than Obama.
Obama is, as I predicted, provoking a strong reaction. I think things will look a lot better after the next election.
