Gotta love the logical conservative answers to life's problems ha ha ha
Hey poor person, I know you're already poor, but work a couple months for free for the government, while I berate you with "you're dependent" or "I love small government," while totally ignoring the irony of trying to make you work for FREE for the big government I hate so much!
Ah, logic!
They should work for their sustenance, same as everybody else. If you can't do that, and can't find someone WILLING to pay your way, you should be dead.

Some people do pay more. Smokers tend to pay more for insurance.
Only if you have an individually purchased policy (less than 10%). And smokers tend to be poorer and more likely to be on medicaid, which I can assure you they don't "pay more" for.
I don't have any problem with people being accountable for their life choices.
Good, because over 75% of medical care is due to the consequences of those life choices. Holding those people personally responsible for their choices would cut insurance premiums drastically.
What I have a problem with is people being kicked off insurance due to things they cannot control.
Why should I be responsible for your defective DNA?
What I also have a problem with is children not having access to proper medical care.
That's their parents' fault, not mine.

Corporations do get tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas.
But they also get the same break, for moving to another state.

The tax code is not incentivized to reward moving overseas to moving to another state.

The Indians didn't create the United States, we did. The Third World brought in since 1965 has elected Obama twice, I of course desire a new country with demographics like in 1980 at the least. I've detailed how I think this will happen, I don't really intend to play much of a role in the coming conflict. I'll be a trader on the sides.

I used to think that too, then obama got elected, twice...proving there are more of 'them' than there are of 'us', thus signalling the end of our way of life. Once the non taxpayers outnumber and outvote the taxpayers, the end is calculable.
Throw the mexicans into the mix, and you've got one bad pot of stew boiling. blacks hate whites and mexicans, mexicans hate whites and blacks, and white are too scared to hate blacks or mexicans, so they whites will be overun like a gaggle of geese at a junebug convention.
Relax, IG. No one's gonna be "overrun". Have some cocoa.

had I followed the liberal mindset of entitlement, 40 hour work week, and maternity leave with free health care, I would still be making $20 an hour.
funny thing is I owe that much in taxes an hour now.

Back to paying taxes again? Those 43 lawyers have some explaining to do. You got rooked.

Believe me, I do not overestimate the intelligence of the American people. But I cling to the notion that if a Black American can be elected president, there is reason for hope.

It's not really fair to Bush. He would come off dumb even compared to a barstool.

The Idiot-in-Chief #43 aside, any reasonable, open-minded person would have to acknowledge Obama's superb intellect, his analytical skills, and his rare combination of idealism with practicality. Of course, you won't much open-mindedness on this thread.

Obama supporters didn't measure his amount of blackness before recognizing him as non-white. And you can stick your "birther" psychosis where the sun don't shine.
