Our country was built on the ideals of liberty and freedom. I defend your freedom to think differently then I do. Unfortunately (as I find with most left wing nutjobs) you wouldn't defend my right to think differently than you. That aside, the further we descend into a nanny state more liberties and freedoms will be lost. If you believe the government will just give to the poor without asking for something in return you are in for a wake up call. I want less government in my life, not more. That means being a responsible citizen who is accountable for their own life. This is what we are losing, little by little, day by day. So go get your government freebies and watch your freedom erode.

Hey Veritas, you mean less government in your concerning things like financial oversight concerning banking institutions? That worked so well didn't it. Maybe less oversight concerning air and water safety so the monolithic industrial billionaires don't poison us and our children. Maybe less oversight over medicare, allowing the pharmacies and doctors to charge what they want. Maybe less oversight over that socialist like system called social security, you know, that type of thing that scares you conservatives so badly, that is unless you are recieving that socialist funding. How about less oversight concerning billionaires having laws created and changed to allow tax deadbeats like Romney to hide tax dollars that should be paid to our government. That would help relieve the burden of the middle class honest tax payers. Sure some government regulations need to be tweaked, but to generally claim that government oversight is eroding our freedom just puts you in that far right wing wacco sky is always falling crowd. We are the government. We need protection from the thieves and abusers of the system. America apparently doesn't think as you do. Your guy didn't get elected by America. Now, as Olive quizzed, what freedoms are you losing?
First off I am Libertarian. I voted for Gary Johnson. Since I work in healthcare lets talk about changes that have already been made. With states going bankrupt (like here in Illinois) your democrat leaders here passed legislation earlier this year that is squeezing medicaid. Their legislation is reducing negotiated prices for services so that doctors and hospitals receive less for services rendered. Additionally the state is slow to pay. As a result more doctors are refusing medicaid patients. So that means the ones that do accept medicaid are seeing way too many patients and its hard to get in to see them. Benefits have been reduced as well, even for senior citizens. See how your freedom of choice is affected? Fewer doctors and greater delays in seeing them. That's why you wait so long at the ER as well. Because those on medicaid use the ER as their physicians office. BTW. Would you be suggesting that business people who assume all the risk in owning and operating a business not be allowed to enjoy the benefits of being succesful? We need to remove subsidies from these corporations and even the playing field. We need tax codes that are fair, like a flat tax. But the more you receive from the government, the fewer your choices will be. That's not freedom, that's socialism.

What does Medicare reimbursement have to do with "your rights". Where is Medicare listed in the Bill of Rights you moron? You have no idea what your talking about. You want a flat tax and you think not getting it is an attack on your rights? You are afuckingidiot. This is proof. You got nothing. Quit spewing nonsense about your rights, you have no idea what you are talking about. Romney and the Republicans would gut Medicare and leave millions of senior citizens with nothing. If you truly are concerned about Medicare you should be glad Obama won. The Affordable Care Act will help hospitals because everybody will have insurance and hospitals will receive payment where now they are carrying all the uninsured on their books waiting for payment. Just STFU about Obama taking your rights. shitforbrains.

There's still uneducated morons out there that want a flat tax?

And they're LIEbertarians who voted for a fellow moron like Gary Johnson too?

IMAGINE THAT!

Here's why the flat tax is NOT a good idea - and please ... feel free to jot this down so you'll never support anything that stupid again:

If you tax at say ... 20%, that means a poor person making $20K a year pays $4,000 in income tax, while a rich person that makes $2,000,000 a year pays $400,000 in income tax.

That poor person has $16,000 left, while the rich person has $1,600,000 left.

Sound fair, simpleton?

The poor person may have to give up their car, which reduces their options in terms of getting a job, in order to pay for their house or apartment.

The rich person? He or she doesn't have to sacrifice basic needs and simple modern conveniences to pay their taxes.

Still sound fair, simpleton?

Simply put: The poor person needs that 20% he's losing a lot more than the rich person does. THAT'S why a flat tax will ALWAYS disproportionately burden the poor.

Then again ... hypocritical LIEbertarians never did care about the poor or fairness now did they? Their heroes (like Wrong Paul who collects Social Security while likening it to "slavery" and Ayn Rand who collected SS and Meicare) sponged up the very things they demonized others for collecting.

Ayn Rand collected both Social Security AND Medicare benefits late in life. Why didn't Ayn Rand pay her medical expenses from the sweat of her brow and the proceeds from her labor instead of becoming a hypocritical "parasite"?

She believed Native Americans had no rights to their land - and then got her own estate taken by the Soviets!

Isn't karma wonderful sometimes?

What happened you loudmouth coward? Where did you run off to? Are you afraid I'm gonna shove us much crow down your throat as I can for the NEXT FOUR YEARS?

Well guess what?

I AM .. over and over again - every chance I get!

I thought you "couldn't wait to vote"? Isn't that what you ended so many of your posts with? It doesn't look like it helped much now did it?

Romney = GONE!

And that's just the beginning. You republicans and tea party idiots got trashed all over the nation.

Only 4 of the 16 Senate candidates endorsed by the Tea Party Express won yesterday. That's 25% for mathematically-challenged repukes like yourself. That's even lower than Dubya's approval rating as he was losing office!

Here .. let's review the carnage while it's still nice and painfully fresh for you shall we?

Jessie Jr = RE-ELECTED!

Joe Walsh = GONE!

LMAO ... Isn't that wonderful? Who will TOUGH GUY Walsh shout at now that he wont have any constituents to shout down? His ex-wife? His mistress?

But wait ... it gets BETTER ... repukes have been shown the door all over the country!

Allen West = GONE!

Todd Akin = GONE!

Richard Mourdock = GONE!

Former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson = GONE!

Scott Brown = GONE!

Oh ... and Sherrod Brown = re-elected and Alan Grayson = re-hired!

How did that policy of obstruction and zero-compromise work out for you guys again? How's that making Obama a one-term president your number 1 priority looking to you now?

I hear there's some kind of a nasty civil war going on now on the Repuke side of the fence too. Could you elaborate on that?

Tell me ... what happened to those "skewed" polls? I thought Romney was "surging"?

And I hear Dick Morris was on Hannity and he said there was a "zilch, zone, zip nada," chance of Obama getting reelected?

Did Fox news LIE TO YOU AGAIN?

Any answers for us? Any at all?

Since you guys had so much to say the past few months ... how about you "man up" and answer!

Can you tell I'm just lovin' this?

YOU GOTTA KNOW I AM ...

And I'll continue to rub your face in this for THE NEXT FOUR YEARS.

Cue the tears repukes! I think I'm gonna put on Who's Cryin' Now by Journey and continue laughing.

Larger, more intrusive government is not the answer folks. Obama and the current democrat leadership are creating a society where people are becoming more dependent on the government for their necessities in life. More government employees does not increase tax revenue, it creates more debt. Private sector jobs are the answer. That means some people become wealthier than others and that is just a fact of life. We need to kick the lobbyists out, end tax subsidies for all private industry, stop the bailouts of banks, financial institutions and other forms of industry. End NAFTA and CAFTA and engage in truly fair trade with other nations. That would spur economic growth and provide more jobs. But if you LOVE the nanny state, why would you want to work? Just keep living in public housing, use your medicaid for healthcare and get groceries on the state as well.

1. I never once mentioned Obamas name. 2. I never mentioned Medicare. My comments were related to Medicaid. Once Obamacare is really implemented Medicaid will be the first plan affected and it already has been. States are making changes to Medicaid in preparation for Obamacare. Those changes will mean fewer benefits, fewer doctors to choose from, longer waits and long lines at ERs. 3. I never mentioned 'rights'. My point was that in accepting the government hand outs you will exchange some of your liberties and freedoms for it. As for rights though, I have rights in the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. Against these there is NO law. DON'T TREAD ON ME!

Yes, I'd rather work and earn my keep, be a productive member of society who pays taxes and expects those who can to do the same. I don't want to be a sponge/parasite who just sucks at the teat of the government. How's that for bitter, old and angry?

So let me get this straight. You are against government "freebies" but worried about low reimbursement rates to doctors for Medicaid? You want medicaid recipients to be able to choose any doctor or treatment when I can't do that with my expensive private health insurance? You're all over the place here. You can't be against government handouts and wanting to expand Medicaid at the same time. You're one of those keep government out of my Medicare/Medicaid morons aint ya?
