Those of us on ‘short lists’ will be dumped into medicare, refused care for age or desirability, and told to die for the public good.

Gar-an-teed.

My retirement insurance is null and void as soon as ObamaCare comes in to play. My employer says they will kick me off the plan I worked to achieve after 33 years because I’m eligible for another plan. Oh yeah, I’m getting excited.

The feces will be hitting the fan!!! We The People had this DeathCare, aka genocide of the unborn and the elderly, shoved down our throats. We have to shove it up their rectums in November. We have no choice.

And some posters here claim they can’t vote for some repubs in nov because they are not 10 of 10 of what they want.

We need to destroy these communists asap.

If Conservatives/Republicans don’t get a good showing or majority in November, we can kiss the good ole USA goodbye. No more American Dream. We will join the ashheap of failing Socialist nations. I’m beyond sad.

“Well, that is what got us to this point, just saying...”

You are wrong in this case — even the worst RINOs stuck with the GOP and didn’t vote for this monstrosity.

Not to mention, that one more RINO elected in place of a Dem may be the one handing the Republicans the majority.

Defeat the Dems FIRST, then after we have a solid Republican majority, then we can go after the RINOs, but we need to keep our priorities straight.

The Republicans that stayed home in 2006 and 2008 got us to where we are now! Thanks a bunch! You must vote for any Republican on the ballot in Nov. We must get that gavel out of Nancy's grimmy fingers.

Well, I understand the specturm in political standards. I’m for voting for the people who run who most represent the ideas I have, not the one I think is most likely to win. That’s what got us where we are. Our values have been ever shrinking. But hey, I even write in candidates, so don’t ask me.

But voting for the “Not as bad”s is exactly what got us where we are. We have been presented with socailism, and socalism light, instead of saying, “Neither” and voting for someone better. The silent majority needs to just stop being silent. Without two sides to an argument, people just go with who is loudest, because often they’re the only ones talking. The GOP lays down on most issues. Obamacare being the exception. (For the vote, that is, we have yet to see this battle after it’s protracted).

“I am for voting for the people who run who most represent the ideas I have, not the one I think is most likely to win. “

THIS is what got us here. Those who keep voting for Republicans or third party candidate, contributed to the huge Dem majority we have now, and look what they have done to the country in a year and a half.

Sorry, but you’re wrong. We are a nation of representation. We vote for people who will represent us, not those who we think will merely win. It’s that lack of principle that got us to this point, no spine mentality.

People, I dare say, voted for Raegan because of what he valued, not because he was mostl likely to win (Well, his second time, after sweeping the first...maybe). The problem is that the little guy, the one who loves America gets squashed out before ever starting because of things like Charisma. One day we’ll return back to a nation of laws and representation, but that will come after people realize that things like what you are saying is wrong.

Good leaders are usually the ones who don’t want to lead, like General Washington, nor career politicans. And they don’t care about electability at all. We are a nation of values, and it’s time to act like it. IF EVERYONE did it, we would no longer have this mess. The reality is, that I still hold that idea, and we’ll have corrupt government politicians until people care about PRINCIPLE, not star power.

The Republicans--including a large number of RINOs--already held a majority in Congress and held The White House from Jan. 2001 to Jan. 2007, and look where that got us. Deeper in the hole, with liberal Democrats in charge.

The time to champion conservatives over RINOs is either now or never.

I know exactly what you are saying. This obamanation sitting in DC is exactly that. I can only hope, and pray, that good sense will prevail in the long run and we will see a lot of this evil nonsense resended.

“If major companies start dropping health care benefits, opting instead to pay the government a penalty, Democrats would face a political backlash.”


My God only knows how much I hope this backlash is made of ice cold steel strings that render every demorat impotent!
