It should fail for conservatives. The uninsured ones that develop major illnesses should go bankrupt. If their families suffer with them, oh well -let them pray. Is that attitude wrong?
Yeah, lets bankrupt the whole country and make everyone suffer except for the exempted public workers.

And allow only the government to run it. Like the VA!!!!

Yeah, that's a great idea...

More from a 'rational atheist' oxymoron...

Smirk.

That's a humanist attitude, only care about those that agree with you and support you.

Universal health care is a great idea. Obamacare is not universal health care, it's a tax hike in the billions, it's forcing Americans for the first time to purchase something or face fines and possibly jail terms. Hell, the IRS hired 16,000 new employees to make sure this tax hike is collected.

There's nothing good about the ACA. It's a joke. You act like people are insured because of it, they're not.

They've done their damnedest to run off any believers from Topix (up to AND icluding offline stalking) in their efforts to appear to be "the" voice of reason. apparently they are unaware how distinctly irrational their intense censorship looks to people who are not aggressive freaks like them.

According to history, you're wrong. When atheism gets power, people die. People like me.
Atheism isn't an ideology, so there is no basis for such a conclusion. You have to look at something prescriptive to make a prediction about how a group will behave.

Are Stalinists going to outnumber theists in America in the next 20 years?

“Some beliefs are so dangerous that it may be ethical to kill people for believing them”
Sam Harris, The End of Faith, pp.52-53.
You agree?!?
It's easy to agree with "may be".
RiversideRedneck wrote:
Tell me, what belief is do dangerous it merits execution?
Potentially, Jihad.

The United States government is hunting down members of Al Qaeda, and killing them, because their beliefs are that dangerous.

I need you to remember that I am not nearly as dichotomous as you are. If there were a way of providing protection without killing, I would prefer that.

WTF are you talking about?

You went off on an imaginary tangent so that you could feel persecuted.

Don't get on my nerves, young'un. What Tide said was pretty clear, he agreed with Harris that people should be executed for a belief.
Harris didn't say that "people should be executed for a belief". I didn't have the opportunity to agree with that, because it wasn't said.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
"I agree. It may be ethical to kill people, under certain circumstances, to protect yourself or others, for what those people are almost guaranteed to do, for the beliefs that they hold."
It is in no way ethical to execute a person fur done thing they "are almost guaranteed to do".
That's humanism for ya.
Read it slower.

It's an argument for killing in self/other defense.

Are you a pacifist?

When it is clear that a person is willing to kill thousands for a belief that they hold, AND the circumstance provides that they have the means to do so, it may be ethical to kill them as soon as all the information is available and you have the opportunity, rather than risk the thousands of lives on trying to disarm them before they can act on their beliefs.

The ACA created 16,000 new jobs already?

Wait, that's a bad thing, right?

Be honest in your "reporting".
Ragging them off?

So it's a once a month kind of thing?
