@OmSigDAVID,

Agreed. So what? I would suggest that neither do the Tea Baggers say "vote for our candidate and he will oppose every significant humanitarian measure psossibel." Those who agree with this agenda also do not know what their future might hold. The claim that this is an attempt to curb the powers of the government is a palpable smoke screen. These people are not opposed to the government exercising its legitimate voter-approved power. They are opposed to THIS government getting anything whatever worthwhile accomplished.

No. The idea is to restore the status quo ante
getting government out of interfering in the economy,
as well as we can get it out, which is not 100%.
The economy belongs in the private sector.

In school we studied fascism ala Franco, Mussolini and Hitler, Communism - China, Soviets etc. It's not just the tea-partiers that spread this crap but that certain media outlets don't seem to know the difference either and yet... it seems the average person doesn't understand that socialism is alive and doing quite well in the States. The military, police forces, education, libraries.. this list goes on and yet, healthcare is an affront to their precious democratic ideal.
It's scary to witness the level of ignorance.

A friend sent this to me on Facebook:

NO SOCIALISM! SOCIALISM BAD! *Brad smash*Share
Tuesday, March 23, 2010 at 4:12pm

This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the US Department of Energy. I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the municipal water utility. After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric ADministration determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. I watched this while eating my breakfast of US Department of Agriculture inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the Food & Drug Administration.

At the appropriate time as regulated by the US Congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards & Technology and the US Naval Observatory, I get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration approved automobile and set out to work on the roads built by the local, state, and federal departments of transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the Environmental Protection Agency, using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve Bank. On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the US Postal Service and drop the kids off at the public school.

After work, I drive my NHTSA car back home on the DOT roads, to a house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and the fire marshal's inspection, which has not been plundered of all its valuables thanks to the local police department.

I then log on to the internet which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration and post on freerepublic.com, Fox News forums, and intowncolumbus.com about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can't do anything right.

@Merry Andrew,
there's every indication that our prime minister may be a "queen" (he was looking for a mandate during the last election Wink )
