Take a deep breath, and think.
In all reality, Obamacare is no more than 15% of the socialist filth and anti-American disasters that the Obama administration has fostered on us.
Horribly weakened military A blame-America foreign policy Gays welcomed in the military A crushing national debt Open borders Everybody possible on Food Stamps Only Blacks are worthy of help by the DOJ Fast and Furious High $ giveaways for every radical group and cause. Eric Holder in general Hillary, et al.

Rev Wright Loss of all our friends in the ME. The Iranian bomb Adios Pakistan
and more and more and more
Now, for the first time, we have a issue that we can get the undecideds angry about.
Now, for the first time, we have an issue that will make most Americans scream, "Get that bastard out of my White House!"
Now, most Americans see Obama as a "clear and present danger." No more "everyone else is just as bad." Obamacare will be Romney's #1 issue, but so much else will be addressed as well.
Had we won on Obamacare, we would have lost a voter invigorating issue and given the Dems one.
Now, if we play it right, we can have every American middle class person and undecided running to their window and screaming "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore."
Getting rid of Obama solves the Obamacare problem, helps bring a conservative House and Senate, and so very much more!
We may have lost a battle... and this battle can win us the war.
In reality, we have been handed a great gift.
Rest, get sleep, plan, scheme, think: "What can I do for the next 135 days to help get rid of Obamacare.... Obamaism.... and Obama ! ?
Today is Dunkirk. Tomorrow is Overlord. November 6th is VE, VJ, VAmerica and VWorld Day.
Smile. We have just begun.... and for me, John has a long mustache!
Those campaigning for Obama’s re-election here on FR are now also campaigning for Obamacare.
Case in point.
I hope you’re right. Nothing more would make me happy than to see Obama’s smug face turn into shock when he loses come November.
I’ve begun to see things this way too. And remember, it’s no longer the ObamaCare mandate; it’s The ObamaTAX, because of today’s Supreme Court decision and Roberts’ majority opinion!
With your permission, one of your most succinct statements has become my new tag line.
i d i o t s
It’s only a matter of time, before this entire country is one big Detroit!
At what point are conservatives going to stop bending over and taking it from the Republican party?
Today must set some kind of record for vanity posts on FR!..........
The biggest tax increase in the nation’s history, and almost all of it hits the lower to middle class. And all of them are hit twice as hard, as none of it is deductible off of taxes, whereas those with nice big corps never have to pay a penny of tax on it, since it’s deducted by the business.
So step right up, and have CONGRESS fix THEIR MESS, like they should have done in the past two years, rather than waiting for the SCOTUS to do the job for them. Because let’s be honest here - ROMNEY can’t fix this. He can wave, and dither, and say he’s going to fix it, but only Congress can defund it.
My theory is that one can tell who the stupidest, craziest, nastiest people on this forum are because they claim to know with absolute certainty what the GOP will do in the future, and it is never the right thing.
Have you ever noticed this?
Have you ever noticed that the optimistic, reasonable people try to decide what the most promising thing to do is, and then promote that course of action hopefully but without guarantees.
But the crazy, nasty, haters are the ones who know for sure what the future holds, and it is always catastrophe.
Have you ever noticed this?
No, Romney is not THE golden solution.
But along with a GOP House and Senate we have a great chance to get some kind of real health reform whereas with Obama we have ABSOLUTELY ZERO chance.
So go with ABSOLUTELLY ZERO if you really want it.
More likely is that one day the poop finally hits like it did in Greece and when that day arrives, the Dems will have cleverly positioned themselves to blame it all on the GOP. So, even when the Day of reckoning finally arrives because of the Dems as we've all been predicting, it'll still be blamed on us. I for one am having trouble being optimistic. There is nothing in our past record (going back to 1932) that says we can have the political skills to overcome this set back. With the exception of Ronald Reagan, our candidates just can't sell the fiscal truth in a politically palatable fashion.
Do you really expect things to change?
I hope I'm wrong.
So your proposal is to vote for Obama?
And, what are going to do if Romney and the Republicans get and either don't repeal Obamacare or pass a similar Romney alternative? What are going to do if Romney sticks with judges as bad or worse than Romney? You keep voting Republicans while conservatives keep losing because of Republican policies and judges.
At what point will you hold the Republican party accountable?
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.
I agree with you....
However, the consensus here on Free Republic (as someone called me a couple of hours ago) is you’re a “drooling dolt”, a sheeple, and a Romneybot.
They say the country is screwed, it’s over, they’ve thrown in the towel, gonna cash in their chips, whine, cry, complain about Romney even though he showed plenty of backbone today, complain about the GOP, even though it was the democrats who voted for the monstrousity, even though the Repubicans are committing, one after another, to repeal Obamacare—they are all just liars, don’t you know... Romneycare in Massatwoshits means that Romney cannot possibly run against Obamacare, as the two are molecularly bound like a hydrogen atom’s proton and electron... Nope, Romney cannot run against it, can’t be serious when he says he’ll work to repeal it, because he’s a liar, two-faced, wishy-washy, Massatwoshits gay/RINO/Leftist/Liberal universal healthcare promoting cheat and scoundrel.
So still I ask them... If all you say is true, what do we do know?
And all I hear is NOTHING.
Better to attack and insult your fellow FReepers ‘cause they won’t cry in their beer with you and agree all is lost.
I’m fighting back. Today.
I will work to get all and every Republican elected in November. I will push them to vow to repeal Obamacare. I want to hear public, written statements to that effect. And yes, I will work for the Romney campaign if he is the nominee after the GOP convention.
Being a stupid, gutless, whining quitter is wrong so yes, you are wrong.
What I will never do under any circumstances is turn into a whining, lying, gutless, retarded surrender-monkey like you are right now.
You can put that in the bank.
Asking again, correctly this time:
So still I ask them... If all you say is true, what do we do now?
Since not one Republican voted for this ObamaCare crap, I think I’ll wait and see what they do now. Obama will veto any and all attempts by Republicans to stop this massive tax increase. Obama has to go!
That said, I am seriously thinking of voting for Romney in November, because with Obama in office, there is zero chance Obamacare will be set aside and Romney has promised to set it aside and issue State waivers.
There has to be a credible threat of a conservative third party for Republicans to even consider sticking to a conservative agenda.
When are going to be willing to tell the Republicans that is going to be reality unless they do what the base wants? If Romney ends up being as disaster are you finally going to come to that realization? How much further to the left does the country have to drift before you realize blindly voting Republican isn't a solution?
I think most people are seeing past them now.
Wouldn’t be surprised if they are DU and the like.
DUers are of course here. Notice how quickly they emerge. Now we are seeing them for who they are.
We will win, despite them.
Never. And you will be soon called a traitor for asking. Just wait.
Tell us when Romney ever showed a backbone as governor of Massachusetts? When he caved and signed gay marriage into law? When implemented increases on taxes and fees? When pushed through Romneycare?
It's not a matter of giving up. It's a matter of find something that works. Electing RINOs doesn't work. Bush provided that by expanding government, the increasing the deficit and giving us judges like Roberts.
Name one law, Cabinet position or department that has ever been explicitly shut down or repealed at the Federal level? Can you? If not, how is acknowledging that reality stupid, crazy or nasty?
To the contrary.
The Right will now get all riled up and frothing at the mouth about something which, in practical reality, darned near nobody really cares about. Health insurance? Most people have it, their plan will comply - no fine. Many of the remainder will be happy to pay the fine instead. More of the remainder can’t afford either - which doesn’t matter because they won’t be liable for any taxes anyway (remember that “47% don’t pay taxes” bit?). In practice, this issue doesn’t affect enough people to matter in the voting booth.
The Obama will be thrilled that the frothing Right will make lots of noise - distracting from the real problem which DOES affect and sway voters: economy.
Quit trying to find silver linings in every cloud. Nobody has managed to extract usable silver from the lining of a cloud. Great in theory, worthless in practice.
You campaign for Obama and Obamacare because you hate America and want to see her destroyed.
Yes, I’m a paid Romney bot. He gives me $10,000,000 per year to ensure FR becomes a socialist site. My real name is Leonid Comuniski
Of course, Romney also pays Sarah Palin $200,000,000 to endorse him, Gingrich, $500,000,000, Cain $500,000,000, Tim Paw a billion, the same to Michelle Bachmann,
Poor Rick Santorum, he only get $250 million to endorse Romney.
Don’t you love the people who won’t admit that they disagree with every leading Conservative in America, and, as a bottom line, are working to reelect Obama?
Of course. As I said to JimRob, FR will be the fire to keep Romney in line.
Prohibition was repealed.
Now stop saying retarded things.
Keep dreaming. Denial runs deep.
There, fixed it for you.
I agree with you, I think Roberts unwittingly(maybe) handed the next election to the GOP. If this had been even partially struck down- we’d really be screwed.
As it is, whatever “recovery” team obama was hoping for is long-gone. This bill is gonna have such far-reaching downward pressure on business, we’ll be lucky to recover in 10 years.
I believe you are wrong ,,, One lone republican did vote for Commiecare ,,, from Hawaii I believe ,,, he had a weird last name . I remember the MSM saying the bill passed with bipartisan support .
Now the Holder contempt vote today had 17 Dems on the Fed. Contempt charge and 21 Dems on the civil contempt motion . Don’t look for the MSM to refer to that vote as bipartisan .
Ever hear of the Interstate Commerce Commission?
Reelect Obama or elect Romney?
That IS the choice before us. What would you have me do?
I was for Sarah Palin, but she refused to run. I voted for Newt Gingrich in my state's primary just three short months ago. Santorum won, whom I also would have supported, but BOTH of them gave up and now all THREE endorse Romney.
So what would you have me do?
Your negativism, and that of similar folks around here, is wearing on me. All you can do is advocate what exactly? That I don't vote? That I vote some 3rd Party? Or, Almighty God forbid, I vote for Obama? Sir or Madam, I love my country too much!!!
Today our dear Miss America, Lady Liberty, got knocked down with a bloody black eye. I am spitting mad, but I KNOW who did this to her. It was the democrats and the driveby media--not the GOP or even the RINOs!
Let's not forget who is the REAL enemy here! It is certainly not other FReepers who will vote for Romney because they have to, but rather the LEFT.
And of course, before you say I support them, let's work together to replace RINOs with conservatives at every chance we get....
BTW, when courts make final determinations, following the ruling is not “giving in.” It is following the law. The opposite is anarchy.
BTW, Romney spent millions of his own dollars to try to elect Republicans to the MASS legislature to overturn the ruling... but of course, you never see that mentioned here.
I have the lone Republicans name ,,,, Anh Cao (R) Voted for Commiecare .
Now stop saying retarded things.
You have one example in 200+ years. And it was not a law, cabinet position or executive department, but an amendment. An amendment whose repeal was bought with the promise of tax revenue and regulation potential, so they maintaned control. Add to that a liberal attack on Government legislating "morality" and you have the perfect storm to repeal one thing - once.
Show me an example where the Federal Government willingly relinquished control over you.
And stop insulting people and debate on the merits of your argument.
