I disagree, and that's a highly unreasonable statement given the fact he has just been elected, and you have no idea what will happen in the next four years.

But given your bias and prejudice AGAINST Obama you will choose to spread that propaganda no matter what he does or doesn't do. It's so predictable of you.

The Sovereign Man is the Real Prisoner

by Sartre Batr

According to establishment officials, the concept of the Sovereign Man philosophy is a direct threat to the authority of the State. Depending upon your perception of reality and the degree of legitimacy for government, given to the prevailing order, fundamental inalienable rights of the individual may vary widely. In the extreme, government statists consider most if not all natural rights as capricious and arbitrary, if conflicts challenge the dictates of the regime. This unending and interminable struggle to defend undeniable individual basic rights drives bureaucrats to use unconscionable measures to coerce citizen compliance.

An illustration comes from the FBI’s Counterterrorism Analysis Section in their publication, Sovereign Citizens – A Growing Domestic Threat to Law Enforcement.

“The FBI considers sovereign-citizen extremists as comprising a domestic terrorist movement, which, scattered across the United States, has existed for decades ... Sovereign citizens do not represent an anarchist group, nor are they a militia, although they sometimes use or buy illegal weapons. Rather, they operate as individuals without established leadership and only come together in loosely affiliated groups to train, help each other with paperwork, or socialize and talk about their ideology. They may refer to themselves as “constitutionalists” or “freemen,” which is not necessarily a connection to a specific group, but, rather, an indication that they are free from government control. They follow their own set of laws. While the philosophies and conspiracy theories can vary from person to person, their core beliefs are the same: The government operates outside of its jurisdiction. Because of this belief, they do not recognize federal, state, or local laws, policies, or regulations.”

Such sentiments demonstrate that civil liberties have no place in the realm of federal law enforcement. Authoritarians assume that government automatically possesses authenticity because it claims to hold a monopoly of force within the society. Rational and balanced observers of the history and government abuses, especially to their own citizens, must conclude that arrogant superiority, manifested by magistrates and constables, has caused untold atrocities and suffering.

"The problems with “universal” health care aren’t confined to Britain. Canada’s single-payer, government-run system — where any private health care is outlawed under the Canada Health Act — is similarly failing its patients.
The Health Council of Canada recently surveyed over three thousand patients and found that those with chronic illnesses like high blood pressure or heart disease were largely dissatisfied with the medical care they received. Less than half of respondents with such conditions reported that the care they received was excellent or very good.
But aren’t they getting it for free? Shouldn’t they be grateful?
Not really. Despite the massive taxes Canadians remit to finance universal care, they still must pay out of pocket for some services. Nearly a quarter of chronically ill respondents said that they had skipped their medications or neglected to fill a prescription because it was too expensive."
Now pay attention to this line and for as it makes hellywood a liar.. He don't have employer paid HCI.. It would illegal in Canada..
"Canada’s single-payer, government-run system — where any private health care is outlawed under the Canada Health Act — is similarly failing its patients."

Contagious Paranoia
by Paul Balles

Five years ago I wrote an article on mass paranoia. At the time I argued that U.S. and Israeli paranoia threaten to lead the entire world to oblivion.

In that previous article, I defined paranoia as “a psychotic disorder characterized by delusions of persecution with or without grandeur, often strenuously defended with apparent logic and reason. It involves an extreme, irrational distrust of others.”

That definition of paranoia applies not only to individuals; it also fits large groups of people, like the disastrous gathering of people in Jonestown, Guyana who killed themselves with cyanide poisoning.

It’s contagious and can spread like a pandemic. The U.S. and Israel are acting as paranoid as the Jim Jones cult that led to the murder/suicide of over 900 people.

The entire cold war was an expression of national paranoia on the parts of both America and Russia. As soon as both sides in the cold war relaxed, the U.S. started its moves to create paranoia through its threatening activities.

The U.S. brought virtually the whole Warsaw Pact into NATO, a real threat to Russia. America gave up its policy of deterrence for one of pre-emptive attacks and occupations.

Norman Podhoretz, the godfather of the American neocon movement wrote,“It now remains to be seen whether this president … will find it possible to take the only action that can stop Iran from following through on its evil intentions both toward us and toward Israel. As an American and as a Jew, I pray with all my heart that he will.”

Paranoia took stronger hold in America with 9/11; and the large numbers of security measures that have followed reveal an increasing disorder.

From its beginnings as terrorists in Palestine, Israelis have shifted between their irrational fears of another holocaust and their equally irrational fears of attacks by neighbouring states.

In a study of different island cultures, anthropologist Ruth Benedict, in Patterns of Culture, referred to the Dobuans whose culture seemed to her magic-ridden, with everyone fearing and hating everyone else. She characterised the islanders as “paranoiac and mean-spirited”.

According to Israel Shamir, in the Wall, this “definition fits the Jews as culture to a boot.”

Shamir adds,“The Jewish state is enactment of the paranoid Jewish fear and loathing of stranger, while the Cabal policies of Pentagon are another manifestation of the same fear and loathing on global scale.”

The Medical Encyclopaedia says,“Paranoid individuals constantly suspect the motives of those around them, and believe that certain individuals, or people in general, are ‘out to get them’.”

Present Israel, the country of perennial body search, is the ultimate of paranoid societies.

While paranoia in individuals has no known cure, it can be treated with medication. Group paranoia has no known treatment. Thus, if a group like those following the dictates of cult leader Jim Jones succumbs to paranoia, it’s incurable.

Not only is it incurable, it’s exceptionally dangerous to members of the group as well as to others in contact with the group. When the group happens to be a nation, the dangers become even greater.

The motivation for pre-emptive strikes (Israeli bombing of Iraq and Syria) and pre-emptive wars (American invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan) comes from group paranoia.

The Sci-Tech dictionary, by McGraw Hill describes this sort of paranoia as having “…properties of suspiciousness, fearfulness, hypersensitivity, hostility, rigidity of conviction, and an exaggerated sense of self-reference.”

As the U.S. and Israel move closer to a larger pre-emptive war with Iran, our only hope is that enough of the American public can resist those with paranoid delusions.

You're not worth it. Nobody pays any attention to your stupid post anymore except your fellow Obama fans. It's more than obvious that your stuff is all cut & paste. Nor is there any doubt about the source(s). Yes, it might be from Racial Maddog's blog or some other lefty outlet, but there's no doubt that you are grossly biased. You haven't entertained a contrary thought in years. As with most liberals, "open minded" to you means drinking deeply of the far-left koolaid jug.
I, however, am socially 'liberal'(in the classic meaning) but fiscally conservative. Gay rights? Yes, why not? Abortion? Should be legal (it's going to happen regardless, so why not safe as well?). Pot? Legalize it (all over the country, not just certain states).
But I have a brain and I know that borrowing tens of trillions of dollars from our children and grandchildren is not only unworkable, it's immoral. If you count the unfunded promises, we're really talking hundreds of trillions. Do you really have any concept of how much money that is? I don't think you have the smallest notion.
What gives you the right to burden the unborn with a huge debt so you can pass around "benefits" to people you think deserve them? That's literally taking candy from babies. It's irresponsible and shameful.
We are NOT too big to fail. We've wasted far more on social programs than anything else and have NOTHING to show for it. Unless you actually wanted black families ruined, hard drugs, tens of millions of fatherless children and crime. That's ALL we've accomplished. Provide opportunity? Yes, we should. But redistribute to make certain there's an "equal outcome" REGARDLESS of individual behavior? That ruinous and immoral. You feed sloth and irresponsibility by rewarding it, and discourage responsible behavior by penalizing it.[That does NOT mean ending the security net for those who are TRULY disabled, infirm or old!]
This disease will spread. White people are NOT above sitting on their asses and letting someone else care for them, just like anyone else. It's racist to assume otherwise. As the countries of Eastern Europe showed, socialism will result in virtually everyone giving up, sitting back and letting the government flounder. That's the natural HUMAN reaction to a Nanny State. That is happening here and will only increase under Obama. You are foolish to believe otherwise.
Like Obama showed in the first debate, liberals have no clue where our wealth comes from or how it's produced. They think it's an endless fountain and the only problem is re-directing it to target recipients. That child-like thinking. Capitalism produces the excess wealth you leeches are grabbing. Find out how it works and quit pretending it some sort of miracle that we all should just "share". That's just ignorant thinking.
Wake up, think outside your little liberal box and get a brain. And quit posting your cut & paste drivel!
I had to cut some of your propaganda to fit my response. Your lies are still available to the gullible in your original post.
PS - Nobody denies that both parties buy votes with social spending. But the Dems have been the worst offender by a factor of 5X or more. They've now gone totally insane and taken it to levels that will ruin us completely. We are NOT too big to fail!
Great post!!!

Hey Ralff. What's with this grey box trolling? You can hide from us mortals but you cannot hide from the top mods. They will find you, bitch slap that crown off your head and hand it over to me first thing tomorrow morning.
I know. All those points I've racked up seems overwhelming and impossible to overcome. But hey! I told you. All you have to do is write something nice about the president or the first lady and I would allow you to keep that hat.
You aren't far behind that racist school teacher "teddy4me". Post five times and prop yourself. That will take you second place on the leader board. Just write some nice words about Michelle Obama's vegetable garden and I'll go into my profile, click the button that turns the game off and fall off the leader board altogether bringing you to the top. You can keep that silly hat and I will leave you alone for like one week.
Not Ralff and you got the wrong poster! Not a bipartisan supporter!

Proverbs 3:5-10 KJV

Trust ... in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase:
So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

<quoted text>The same way all of those other countries pay for theirs. Here's how Canada does it:
Why Does the U.S. Spend More on Health Care than Other Countries?
Everyone knows that the U.S. spends far more on health care than other countries, but do you know how much more? In 2009, the U.S. spent 17.4% of GDP on health care (using OECD data). The closest contenders are Netherlands (12% of GDP), France (11.8%), Germany (11.6%), Denmark (11.5%), and Canada (11.4%). The U.S. has higher per capita GDP than these countries, so the gap in absolute spending is even higher. In 2009, the U.S. spent $7,960 per person on health care, and the closest contenders were Switzerland ($5,144 per person) and Netherlands ($4,914).
We have a "for profit" health care system. We shouldn't.
2009 data?? Ok let me know when the government plans to buy all the hospitals and hire all the docs and HC workers..

"In 2009, the U.S. spent $7,960 per person on health care, and the closest contenders were Switzerland ($5,144 per person) and Netherlands ($4,914)."

So at 8k a year what was your problem with Romney and Ryan on the 8k vouchers again??

We're talking about obama, not about Bush. You have no argument so you resort to what happened in the Bush admin. Classic (but tiresome) liberal tactic. That is water under the bridge. We're talking about 4 US citizens that lost their lives and the president "doesn't know nuthin''bout nuthin'." We're talking about 2 US LE officials murdered and several HUNDRED Mexican citizens that have lost their lives and the president "doesn't know nuthin''bout nuthin'." We're talking about the head of the CIA being investigated MONTHS ago and the president "doesn't know nuthin''bout nuthin'." He doesn't need to be president if he doesn't know what's going on with his own administration.
