There were only two points made. I refuted them both - "government takeover of healthcare" is an outright lie. Plopping "socialist" on top of the lie is just sweetening a manure pile with candy sprinkles.
If it needs to be further explained why it's an outright lie, and why the term "socialist" is falsely employed, then it only proves why the tactic is so effective at reaching it's target audience.
Please, keep these two examples in mind every time you hear about "low information voters".
This is a great example as to why we shouldn't wonder why the national debate is so absolutely FUBAR.
We can micro-debate all day long over the words "government takeover" which can imply a hostile coup ---> OR a "government takeover" which in this case meant barely passing a law giving a majority portion of control of healthcare to the federal government; a law which the majority of Americans didn't want and still don't want by using everything within the power of the executive branch and the willingness of the judical branch to help rewrite the law which then made it "legal" to cram it down the throats of a resistant population.
And of course you can say "well, they voted him in" and I can say "true but they're low information, so in reality they didn't know what they were voting for" and so on. But let's not do that. Let's focus on Obama's socialist tendencies which are heartily supported by a good percentage of his upper circles,(unbeknownst to the average Joe Blow average low information democrat voter) because it's not something they probably know a lot about.
Here, chew on this.
"LEAN FORWARD" and "FORWARD" is wording we often see tied to Obama if you read the small print. It's a sub-heading for MSNBC as a matter of fact, flashed to it's TV viewing audience dozens of times a day. Do you think for one minute the average Joe Blow low info democrat knows where that phrase originated?
The word >FORWARD< has a very special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been used mutiple times as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications. The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and although it isn't a secret, it's not common knowledge.
Here. Have another one to add to your wad of cud.
"Redistribution." An Obama term, yes?
It is a direct rewrite of this:
"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need."
You know who said that? Here's a hint. A guy named Groucho had the same last name.
Now, you can sputter and spew and and stomp your feet all you want but not everyone out here is ignorant to what Obama's "vision" of America is and if you are one of those who was overly enamoured with the man before you knew what you were getting, then that's your problem. Don't make it mine. You're emotionally invested in the guy, you're angry he's failing and making mistake after mistake and you're taking it out on anyone who's saying, "I told you so."
Btw, his approval ratings are tanking because a sleepy America is finally waking up and you know what they're seeing? A bumbling president who is so FUBAR (to use your term,) he'll negotiate with Assad, he'll negotiate with Putin, he'll negotiate with Iran yet out of the other side of his mouth comes:
"I WON'T NEGOTIATE WITH REPUBLICANS."
