@bigbi1I10: Should we Americans be on-board with all the Democrat spending programs like: 1. CFL mandates, the amount of water in you toilet mandates; no-sugar in your soda mandates; tax & tax & tax mandates; regulatory mandates; stimulus spending mandates, no carbon from your electric utility mandates – leading to huge electricity price mandates; and, yes, ETHANOL MANDATES, because Democrats want to mandate that you don't use gasoline in your cars. 2. Not paying for defense of the United States. 3. The 100 year socialist engineering project in the U.S. 4. Making the U.S. a modern democratic socialist state. 5. Increasing entitlement spending programs by passing ObombaCare, passing Social Security, Medicare, single-payer health care for everyone, abortion for everyone, condoms for everyone, pre-school for everyone, college for everyone, computers for everyone, electric car subsidies, food for everyone, no "joblock" for everyone, "green" (color from your money) tech companies… 6. Expanding the U.S. to include anyone from Mexico and elsewhere who crawls across the border with no skills. Once again, Democrats believe in government much bigger than do Republicans, they just can't be bothered to pay for it. Let's not forget that government expansion was bigger under Obomba than under George W. Bush.
I don't subscribe to NYT. Why don't you tell us?
@ladisney: See Mitchell's quote of Krauthammer: "Or oppose the bailout and bury Obamacare." That means that no bailout will incentivize insurance companies to withdraw from the exchanges, and OBOMBa Care collapses.

“My objection to both the progressive vision of one-size-fits-all government and some extreme notions of individual liberty is that they both lack the imaginative sympathy required to let groups of people organize their lives in the ways that will let the majority live the way they want to live. “Why not let a thousand flowers bloom? If Colorado wants to legalize weed, fine. If Alabama doesn't, that's fine too. Alabamians who disagree can fight it out democratically, or they can follow Harris' lead and move.” In other words, why do we libertarians insist upon “imposing” freedom on the rest of you.
You sound like someone from private industry who knows how to do stuff. You don't belong in government running our lives.
Oh, don't forget his "good intentions," which outweigh results for all liberals.
You are vastly outnumbered by the other anecdotes having a lousy experience, including the woman whose name was mentioned by Obama in an October speech. She is in Washington, where the amounts of money were "miscalculated." Do you think Obama will ever mention her again?
Such a typical uncompassionate liberal. While millions of people have had their life-saving health insurance canceled by evil Democrats, you are worried about an intra-family dispute.
“He would launch into his views on 'fiat money' and our eyes would glaze over.” If the concept of money, how the government creates it through the Fed, and what branch of government is supposed to create money is too complicated for you, Kurt, maybe you should step aside at let those who know about it take charge. “These libertarians understand that the most effective way to fight statism is to elect the least statist of the two presidential contenders and to focus on a long-term strategy of political work at the grassroots level.” You remember the frog-in-the-boiling water analogy, Kurt? The last one hundred years has given us a Republican Party that only acts as the brake on the massive government Leviathan, stopping the beast from going off the cliff, but keeping it on the road to continue its way towards the all-powerful state. Your lesser-of-two-evils method has failed. “These dorks would happily see the election of a liberal petty fascist like Hillary Clinton, who reeks of nanny statism from every pore, just for the chance to tell the GOP 'I told you so.'” Until you can find such a “libertarian” you are just posing a straw man.
