One of the biggest complaints of the Tea Party faithful and the right in general is that America is becoming a socialist democracy, a “nanny state” that will “take care of us” whether we want it to or not. This is amazing hypocrisy on the part of the Tea Party, considering that some surveys place as many as 44% of Tea Party members on Medicare. That’s kind of how things work when the majority of your membership is over 55. It should be noted that all Medicare cuts as proposed by the Tea Party take place only for those under 55. Yes, lets make some sacrifices – Oh wait, lets have someone else make sacrifices so we don’t have to. And sure enough, that’s what the Ryan budget proposes to do with Medicare. No changes for anyone over 55, but anyone under 55 gets to have vouchers to help pay for private insurance. Once again, redistributing wealth from the poor to the wealthy by means of taxes that are given to major corporate interests. Now why didn’t I think of that?

This attitude is best expressed by a quote I saw on a Tea Party protest sign during the 2010 election:“Keep your filthy government hands off my Medicare.”

Because a lot of people don't get Mormonism. It's out of the mainstream of traditional religions and didn't pop up until 1820, not distinguishing itself until the 1830s and 1840s, compared to traditional religions having been around for several centuries.
Did I say several centuries? More like several thousand centuries.

What a crock.
What do you think is meant by the term "personal responsibility"?
What do you think is meant by the term "free country"?
The nanny-state is not acceptable.
I didn't say they should be banned, I'm pointing out the hypocrisy of people like Carol who continually whine about personal responsibility and the high costs of healthcare, diabetes cost $70 billion a year
I think the Bloomberg attempt to ban them is silly. I also think the war on drugs is ridiculous and pot should be legalized. I'm am against the stop and frisk practices by police and roadside police check points, and no knock warrants, and red light cameras, and police entrapment policies.

And many of his future constitutents were killed by syringe and forceps, which Democrats find acceptable and encourage over abstinence and personal responsibility.
Abstinence and personal responsibility interfere with the Victim Industry and are perceived as racist discussions.

Galt obeys traffic laws, but red light cameras are often rigged to trap people by having extremely short yellow lights. Motorists enter the intersection on green and the light is red before they exit. These cameras are a money-making scheme, pure and simple. Not to mention increasing the number of rear-end collisions.
Many communities in Southern California are eliminating the red light cameras, including San Diego.
Kinda like speed traps? Set ups, on Anything, are NEVER right.

Can't stand that kind of low life bullchit.

Sugary drinks are poison, as a diabetic person, one would think you would agree. There is no nutritional value, makes people fat and rots their teeth
Red meat, sugar substitutes, processed food, fast food, fried food and alcohol can be poison too if overconsumed.

So who do we elect as the food police?

So-based on your Stink of HYPOCRICY and stupid du'ignorance- insurance companies (or in your case-givverment funded programs) should not offer any healthcare services to people that have mental in the membrane eating disorders, anyone who DRINKS alchoholic beverages, anyone who smokes, anyone who eats anything with any cholesterol, anyone who eats anything that might inflame their throats, esophogus, colons, kidneys, liver...anyone who reads too much and strains their eyeballs (or in your case their brain cell) that walks, runs or sits too much that might cause harm to their feet, legs or buttocks...etc etc.

What give YOU or ANYONE else any right to even begin to think you should have ANY say in what or how ANYONE else chooses to live their life?

Because you know what, it's high time yo figured out-YOU (nor anyone else) DON'T have ANY right to decide ANY such thing for ANYONE else!!!!!!!!!!

Galt believes that this is highly possible, although whether it would have made a difference in the outcome is debatable.
Note that the Bible-thumpers exist in large numbers outside the South, in places like Ohio.
Galt maintains that most Bible-thumpers are lower-middle-class whites, economic Democrats except for the abortion issue. They register Republican for appearances, screw up our primaries, then they vote Democrat or stay home.
Screw them.
They vote anti abortion and anti gay marriage. That's all they have in their brains

We don't , the ignorant will eat that crap and kill themselves. Perhaps the huge conglomerates who produce all this poison should foot the bill for healthcare and the drug companies as well. They make billions on making people sick
