No matter who wins the nomination or who wins the coming election, we're going to need FR more than ever to hold their feet to the fire!!
The more power the liberals and GOP establishment concentrate for themselves in the central government, the dimmer the chances for freedom surviving in America.
Romney proves through is love for RomneyCare exactly who and what he is.
Reagan warned us that the socialists would try to impose socialism on us through socialized healthcare, well here it is. Romney says that he wants all 50 states to impose their own similar top down government designed healthcare plans so that all citizens would be covered. Like Obama, he says that if you like your current private plan you can keep it, but how can you when all private insurance companies will be driven out of business. When the government steps in, free markets are no more. The government picks the winners and losers, says who must cover whom for what, tells the providers how much they can charge, how much or how little they can profit, and will eventually limit competition, limit opportunity, limit capitalism, end freedom.
Romney claims the government healthcare plan he wants to impose on us is a free market states rights plan. How can that possibly be if it is designed and mandated by government and forced on the people by government. He says it provides choice, but the only choice offered is to buy a government approved plan or be fined, and you can bet if you refuse their choice and refuse to pay the fine, there will be further choices offered to force you to comply against your will--or else!
Sorry, but a government designed, government controlled, government subsidized, government forced program is not free market, is not capitalism, is not states rights and is not the American way. Whether imposed at the federal level or the state level, whether imposed by Marxist Obama or the "capitalist" Romney, it's the same damn thing. It is central planned, central controlled statism, ie, socialist fascism and it tells us exactly who and what Obama is and exactly who and what Romney is!!
Romney has already designated his National Healthcare Task Force Czar, Pam Bondi, and she says she already has 26 state governors or attorney generals endorsing Romney's plan, and that plan is to have all 50 states impose RomneyCare-like government designed, government controlled, government subsidized, government mandated and government forced healthcare plans on their citizens.
This would be tyranny and it would be coming from the top and it would be coming not from the socialist left, but from the GOP establishment. Socialism must be resisted!!
Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God!!
We are the resistance!!

Good. I took a nap this afternoon. :)
How's the foot/ankle? Are you taking care of yourself?
That is beautiful!
Sweet! I remember the FReepathon days of John1 when that monthly list fit on one page. Back then Rotti and the gang played Fair Funkle too... ah, the good ole days.
Where is Rotti and Mo and Mom, anyhow?
My foot and ankle are doing very well, thank you! :)
YES, and we had members listed by date of becoming Dollar A Day Donors!
Rotti had surgery (shoulder) and cannot sit at her computer. Mo1 is at another site for the better part. IIRC, screen names have been changed.
|Rules for Funkeling.|
In order to score a Fair Funkle on Free Republic, a FReeper must observe the following rules:
1) The thread chosen must have been active within 1/2 hour prior to declaring an attempt.
2) The FReeper must delare a "Fair Funkle" attempt in his/her first post.
3) The FReeper must post count downs from 4 to 1 (the declaration post counts as the first post) at no less than 5 minute intervals.
4) It is the duty of any freeper seeing the declaration to post a "bump", thus ending the attempt.
5) The successful FReeper may, at the fifth and last post, declare in any derisive terms desired, "I did it! A Fair Funkle!"
6) Scoring of Fair Funkles will be by a jury of FReeper peers (the Funkle Committee), and will include: time intervals between count down posts, total time consumed and thread popularity prior to the Fair Funkle.
7) Scoring disputes will be decided by the Funkle Committee and may not be appealed.
8) The awarding of the annual Fairest Funkle Of Them All trophy will be decided by the Funkle Committee.
ROTFL. I remember that ugly thing. It was the purple, ya know? LATE at night!
