<quoted text>Unfortunately, most of the voting public do not understand the impact of socialized care. All you have to do is see the failures of Medicaid and interview doctors who take it. Work or observe offices that service predominately Medicaid patients and you will see what govt. driven health care is about. When someone thinks expanding this failure is a good thing, you immediately realize how ignorant they are. The liberal elites want to continue to enslave the poor and increase those numbers. Unfortunately, the masses are not smart enough to figure this out.
Very true.

So this is what passes for fact in the liberal mind? That's quite interesting. Are you trying to test your stand up skills? Or, are you a conservative in disguise trying to make liberals look more mentally challenged than they already are?

Obama supports the UN treaty to circumvent our Second Amendment.
In addition, take a look at Obama's voting record when he didn't vote present.

nothing so far, but Clinton and the people from the New Left from the 60's generation are pushing and still dont like the Verdict in the SCOTUS case of Mcdonald vs Chicago but Romney would be benefical to the New left because he would go along with something like he did in Massachusetts by placing a tax on gun owners but calling it a fee instead.

Agreed, but i think , "NOTHING SO FAR" should be a headline, after all the scary rhetoric delivered by the Far Right and the talking heads at FOX.....How about the honorable act of apologizing, as freely as they attacked?

Is there a printed response sheet that all liberals use?
I realize you liberals just ignore valid statements you can't rebut and sling mud or name call when you're stumped. But the FOX NEWS comments are being used as often as the race card.
I don't even watch FOX NEWS. I think for myself. If you can pull the liberal propaganda electrodes from your temples, you should try it some time.

I saw it. Thanks.
You know the ironic thing about this UN treaty concerning gun control is that when I first heard about it and checked it out on snopes, they said it was false.
Goes to show how misleading some of these sites can be.

It is pathetic that we have to view sites like SNOPES as "less unreliable" than MediaMatters or FactCheck.

I wish sites like that had little metrics that would allow the user to see how often the information posted on that particular site has been found wrong or misleading.

THEN we would have decent sources and not the additional propaganda dispensers we have to deal with now.

Oh, and just because it is fun, I think on a monthly basis, the percentage of posts that are found to be erroneous is the percentage of their ad income they should have to surrender.

Man I like the way you think!

We need to put that together and get it on the ballot in November!

I already think that we should reduce the salaries of the entire Executive branch, Congress and all bureaucrats to a maximum of $50k with INCENTIVES should they reach certain productivity metrics.

No more rewarding failure!

If only we could get corporate boards of directors to follow suit!

Can we add that idea as well?

Damn skippy!
Let's do away with the lifetime salary/pension too.
Limit bills to one subject/topic. No riders or addendums.
Require laws to apply to congress exactly as they do citizens.
I've got a list of about 15 changes that would have America back on to within 4 years.
