For Democrats, perhaps the most obvious piece of evidence of GOP premeditated malice is the 2010 quote from Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell:

"The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president."

The Republicans have blamed everything on Obama they can think of, after the man ran for a second term and won reelection.

I am surprised the Republicans haven't blamed the Iraq war on Obama.

Tell the GOP: Democrats are going to fight FOR the Affordable Care Act – because it’s already working.

ObamaCare is Working!

So things should have gone more smoothly, yet in the end, Boehner was able to do what he set out to do: Get health insurance through DC's Obamacare exchange. Things didn't work as well as they ultimately will, but they still worked. John Boehner—for a smoker one year away from Medicare eligibility—actually had an amazing range of health plans available to him, ranging from $372 per month to $1,073 per month. So Obamacare actually turned out to be a pretty good deal for Boehner, not because Boehner is Speaker of the House, but because the fundamental premise of Obamacare is sound. And in the end, it worked.

100,000 got insurance. 5,000,000 lost insurance. 100,000,000 have to pay more. Not a sucsess. At the rate people are signing up. Most people will be paying a fee for not even being able to get it please. Obama has paperwork stating 40-60% will lose insurance. 60% of the country want him impeached. At any other time in history he would already be out of office. He is a weak failure of a president and has done more harm to this country than any other president in history. Remember he blamed odumbocare on republicans. Lol

ACA is a vote-buying payoff and a privilege targeted for women, the majority voting faction of the national victim cult.

When leftist say ACA is working, they are insinuating ACA is working for women in general, and in particular single women with feminine medical problems. All of the government approved ACA plans are forced to include additional female-only medical services, including elective abortion.

That's right kiddies; the connivers are going to force you to pay for elective abortions too. Queers got their AIDS/HIV therapies in there too as mandatory plan coverage.

Check the pro-ACA hysteria, and notice who is squealing the loudest. There is a pattern.

We are living in the greatest debt bubble in the history of the world, the global banking system has been transformed into a high-risk pyramid scheme of debt, risk and leverage that could collapse at any time, and wealthy countries such as the United States have been living way above their means since Ronald Reagan became President. Meanwhile, the United States is being deindustrialized at a blinding pace and poverty in this country is absolutely exploding. Anyone that is not concerned about the economy should have their head examined. Fortunately, I have found that an increasing number of Americans are becoming convinced that we are heading for a horrific economic crisis. Once they come to that realization, they want to know what they should do.

Beyond McConnell's words, though, there is circumstantial evidence to make the case. Republicans have opposed a lion's share of stimulus measures that once they supported, such as a payroll tax break, which they grudgingly embraced earlier this year. Even unemployment insurance, a relatively uncontroversial tool for helping those in an economic downturn, has been consistently held up by Republicans or used as a bargaining chip for more tax cuts. Ten years ago, prominent conservatives were loudly making the case for fiscal stimulus to get the economy going; today, they treat such ideas like they're the plague.

Five years ago, even the most paranoid person claimed that you would never see “nationalized” banks in the USA. The gung-ho survivalists claimed the entire country would go up in flames and open revolts would start before something as insane as a $700+ billion bailout to save the "too big to fail" rich elite was laid on the backs of the American working class. Yet here we are.

Try to explain this very important issue to your American friends, that banks would never steal people’s money because there are laws against that in the USA; their money is insured. We had those same laws in Argentina, but still it happened. We had a constitutional right to private property. Yet the constitution mattered little during the collapse. Go right ahead – sue the government of the United States if something like that ever happens. Maybe you’ll get some of your savings back in a few years. If they feel like returning it.

What people don’t understand is that laws are written by men, not some greater power. As soon as those running the show feel an emergency decree or law is in order, existing laws are simply rewritten. They may even be ignored altogether! What do you do if something like that happens? You may complain, you may sue, but you’re not changing the cold hard fact that as of right now, that bank door is closed, that ATM has no money in it, and you still have to survive. This is something Argentines have experienced and know very well. Hundreds of thousands of us have banged the doors of our banks for years without a penny being returned. You still sued, and waited, and spent the little money you had by hiring a lawyer. You lose, they win…unless you have some of that money at hand before they decide to steal it.

Have you invested in Gold - Silver - Jewels? China is investing in jewels as I write. Have you ever read how many diamonds Russia owns?

Who is your smartest person on here? What advise do they give you?

Did you know the Inited States may be pulling all of the troops out of Afghanistan?

US to Afghanistan's Karzai: Sign security deal or we'll pull out all troops next year.

Could they be pulling out to make America safe from chaos.

All that ammunition people have bought, may go up in smoke, along with their guns. Could we be in for trouble ahead? Is Ted Cruz right?

It could get ugly!

Already, several African nations have had citizens killed in food riots. There is talk that the government in Bangladesh could be toppled over soaring food prices. Food-related tensions and unrest are breaking out in Central Asia, Southeast Asia, and South America. Armed soldiers now stand watch over rice distribution in more and more countries. Just a few miles to the South, food riots have broken out in Mexico and Haiti. Estimates are that 33 nations are at risk of conflict and social unrest because of food shortages.

Obama raised the debt more than all other presidents in history. Bush was bad for it obama is good for doing it more, huh. Obama has given us a badname everywhere in the world. Obama has bought the media and placed a blackout on many topics. Obama is taking healthcare away faster than giving it. He has lined his friends pockets with taxpayer money. The rich ( 7 of top 10 congress wealthiest are demos) get richer. Obama has never told the truth to the american people. Obama has given money to syrian al queda our sworn enemy. He is a traitor to the people and the country

Here is the Question - Are You Prepared?

At this point, everybody knows how important it is to stockpile food, water and other necessities for an emergency. I can’t imagine anyone saying, following a disaster,“If only someone had told me that I should prepare for something like this.” A few people are well-prepared, many people are somewhat prepared and most people aren’t prepared at all; but nobody can say they weren’t warned that they could be without these crucial items should a crisis occur.

Here's a great opinion piece on how/why Republicans create their own miserable existence.....
==========

Self-Induced Misery

Why do Republican politicians and their fans/enablers expend so much energy trying so hard to make themselves feel so miserable?

Between the problems with healthcare.gov and Ted Cruz's constant pronouncements that everything from traffic jams to spoiled leftovers to lousy officiating is "because of Obamacare," the Internet is just exploding with validations of disaster and misery and hate and fear and resentment and all those other emotions that Republican politics is increasingly based on.

We've all known for some time, and I've written here extensively, about the paracosm in which GOP politicians and their fans/enablers live. What I'm concerned about now is their mental health, but in a different respect. Maybe emotional health is a better term.

Since 2009 the GOP and its fans/enablers have made a concerted, relentless and aggressive effort to make themselves feel as bad, as miserable, as angry and outraged as possible about as many things as possible. All we've heard from them since that time is how bad everything is, how everything is going to hell in a handbasket, how they feel scared and threatened and put-upon and angry and resentful and outraged and surrounded on all sides by evil and by people bent on oppressing them, controlling them, enslaving them, taking things from them, forcing things upon them, destroying everything they know and love, how abject disaster is always just around the corner if not already in progress. It's a sort of aggressive, relentless, unyielding state of misery and unhappiness, and it never lets up for a second.

Why do they feel this way? Losing an election is one thing; having to account for one's own unqualified and unequivocal support for one of history's most disastrous presidencies, and for a political party that hasn't made a prediction about anything important that turned out to be right since January 17, 1961, is another. But of course they won't acknowledge that. Instead they'll give you a whole narrative filled with 35,000-foot-high-level abstractions about "big government" and "freedom" and what-not, gross distortions and mischaracterizations of reality, whatever justification they think they need, reverse-engineering the world to make them feel exactly how they want to feel. Time after time I read and listen to this rhetoric and think to myself, WTF are you talking about? What world are you living in? This aggressive and relentless misery, resentment, fear and loathing is just grotesquely out of proportion to anything that is actually happening or that anyone could reasonably believe. Some of the things they say and claim to believe, there's simply no reason to believe it unless you really, truly, desperately want to believe it.
