Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

yet the studies show that to be false. and no, in this case middle class is an economic status.

i don't suppose you have any kind of data to back up your claim from california? i gave you the data for the nation and it proved your parroting of that old myth totally wrong.

Keeping the government out of the business of our health care should have been the first and most important step in reforming a broken system.
Common sense should have been right on its heels.
Neither were considered or implemented because it would have been too "American".
That should scare the phooey out of anyone who considers themselves true-blue Americans. ObamaCare is much more communistic and Cuban-like.
Sure nitwit, lets entrust our access to healthcare to big insurance whose primary goal is to maximize profits by any means including picking and choosing who they cover, arbitrary lifetime caps and throwing people who get sick off their policies.
The ACA is no way, shape or form Cuba like STUPID! In Cuba the government owns the hospitals and doctors, nurses and other health professional are government employees. Even a single payer system like Medicare uses private sector hospitals and private practice physicians.

Delusional much Carol? Let's take a look at the polls on some issues;
Marriage equality: Half of all Americans believe that gay men and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll in which a large majority also said businesses should not be able to deny serving gays for religious reasons.
Fifty percent say the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equal protection gives gays the right to marry, while 41 percent say it does not. Beyond the constitutional questions, a record-high 59 percent say they support same-sex marriage, while 34 percent are opposed, the widest margin tracked in Post-ABC polling.
Minimum wage: On minimum wage, voters support raising the federally mandated minimum, 72 percent to 27 percent, including a majority of Republicans, who support it 52 percent to 45 percent, according to a Quinnipiac poll.
Gun laws: An April 2013 Gallup Poll found that 65 percent Americans wanted the U.S. Senate to pass a gun safety law which would have expanded background checks for gun purchases. Prior to the measure failing in the Senate, Gallup reported that support for expanded background checks was as high as 90 percent.
And finally your dreaded single payer health coverage:
Polls indicating majority support for single-payer
…………………………For single-payer……..Opposed to single-payer
General public: Polls in which support is 60 percent or higher
Harvard University/Harris (1988)(a)……………………61%…………..not asked

Wall Street Journal-NBC (1991)(c)………………………69%…………….20%

Sorry Carol but right wing ideologues like you are in the minority on most if not all issues.
There will be a time when there are no right wing idealogues. They say that whites will be in the minority by 2050 and that will benefit the Democrats, socialists and communists.

On the other hand, there is something called reality. With fewer working people who will support the party of unwed baby mamas with government as the daddy? How will a country of poor thugs and poets do globally? Will the future thugs keep the borders open and welcome the unskilled poor or not care?

Entitlement programs will account for half the federal budget by 2022, depends on a young working population to carry the burden of the elderly and the poor. Soon the cash demands of these programs will exceed the revenue our population can produce to sustain them. Either we need to fundamentally change these programs or dramatically raise taxes. If there are fewer taxpayers, who will pay the taxes?

And, more and more literature is being produced showing that the traditional family is not an historic accident but an essential institution necessary for healthy, prosperous living.

This all explains the core tensions in the Republican Party today.

Should the party pander to the current liberal trends of the country to try and win votes in the short term?

Or should Republicans be sounding the alarm and pointing the way back from what a sober look at America today says is not a healthy situation – socially or fiscally?

Or just give up, party (pass the legal weed bills--whoo hooo) and live for now and not care as Obama and the Democrats continue putting the US on the permanent road to failure?

Republicans Glued Themselves To Bundy And Now Hate That He Sticks

....now that Bundy's racial sentiments have been exposed, forcing the right to ostracize him as best they can, Republicans have re-directed their anger at those who might point out that the man who openly wondered if blacks had been "better off slaves" is one of their own.

They fumed that it had become just another excuse to denigrate conservatives.

To wit: As soon as conservative media titan Sean Hannity communicated his disgust with Bundy's "beyond despicable" comments, he turned his rage toward the nameless, faceless liberals who would brand all conservatives for allegedly holding the same views.

"They want to say that conservatives are racist. Conservatives hate women," Hannity said Thursday. "Conservatives want old people to die, granny over the cliff. They want the young people to fend for themselves. They want to poison the air and poison the water."

"People that, for the right reasons, saw this case as government overreach now are branded because of the ignorant, racist, repugnant, despicable comments of Cliven Bundy,"

You don't have a clue what you're talking about... again.
Pg 30, Sec 123 states that there will be a government-appointed committee that decides what treatments you are allowed and what your overall benefits are.
Translation: Death Panel.
ObamaKare: "We're sorry, Mr. Smith. Your life isn't funded for next year because some crackwhore needs an abortion, and some illegal alien needs prenatal care for her anchor baby."
WRONG AGAIN STUPID! Section 123 establishes a Health Benefits Advisory Committee that makes recommendations on what types of health insurance coverage will be defined as basic, enhanced or premium. The committee will be chaired by the surgeon general, with members appointed by the president, the comptroller general, and representatives of federal agencies. This committee makes recommendations on insurance regulations, so in that sense it does set standards for benefits. But it does not make decisions about treatments for individuals.
The real death panels were in the insurance company backrooms otherwise known as the underwriting department who's pencil pushers and bean counters decided whether or not to pay for treatments based on their profit margins.

We know the Repub plan. You got enough money live if not die. You can't comprehend what rich is. The 400 richest in America have more wealth than the first 150 million Americans combined. It would take over 20 years working at minimum wage just to equal the average one year pay of the top 1%. It would take over 5000 years at minimum wage to equal the average pay of the top 400.

Get a grip on reality. No one glued themselves to Bundy's racist remarks.

But we have what Dave keeps trying to run from.....

Dem Sen leader Reid, that millions of Dems have glued themselves too and also a known racist, trying to call out a cattle rancher for being racist.

The fact Dems cannot see the absurdity of their position is not lost.
