Time to Shelve the Conventions

See the R convention that just ended for a great example of lies, idiocy, and filth. Here's a couple facts: 1. The rate of growth in federal spending has been lower during the Obama administration than during any other administration in the last 32 years. 2. Every study of the economics of healthcare concludes that Obamacare and similar programs that increase access to preventative care reduce the cost of health care for any nation in which they are implemented. 3. The R platform supports a total ban on bortions, with no exception for rape or mortal danger to the mother. 4. That plant in Wis. was shut down before Obama was inaugurated. You are on the wrong side of history.

We might be on the Wrong Side of History IF history were a fixed place but you are either particularly stupid, liar, watch PMSBNC or any combination of the three. The medical term for a condition such as yours is Chris Matthew's Syndrome. There is no cure for the syndrome but to stop the spread of the contagion the victim's television must be removed, computer use limited to 30 minutes per week. Heavy doses of sedatives do not help the patient all that much but the rest of us are relieved when he is quiet.

I'm glad that the Republican plank is against all abortions, abortion is in murder in the womb, the Democratic plank is pro abortion, pro murder. The rate of growth in federal spending is lower then any other administration in the last 32 years? Maybe so, but have you seen the amount of debt we have added in the 3 1/2 years? This is something to be proud of? Obamacare is adding to the deficit, not making things better. The cost of healthcare has risen drastically in the last 3 1/2 years because of the fear of a government run health care . As for the plant in Wisconsin, Obama promised that this plant and others will not stay closed on his watch, it's still closed. Where's the truth, it isn't with the Democrats.

I believe that abortion if the mother's life is in danger is self defense, since the baby is a clear threat to the life of the mother. Beyond that, abortion is murder, even if it's rape, incest, or simply not wanted.

Further, like the majority of other murder-crimes, it should be investigated, prosecuted, and punishment executed at the state level, if and how the state chooses.

Oh we believe your studies! NOT LOL

Switzerland has, arguably, the best health care system in the world. You can opt out of the government system or opt in. But doctors there earn less and less and must study more and more and longer and longer and they are not happy about it. Soon people will not be willing to not be rewarded for the hard work they do.

Sure, poorer people who benefit from stealing money from their neighbor (and not going to jail for it) think the programs are swell. All thieves enjoy their way of living. But when it all comes crashing down because doctors are not being remunerated for their work, good luck with that. We will back to the Dark Ages.

fact (less)

And as to your nonsense about Obama having the slowest rate of growth in federal spending? This article blows that stupid nonsense out of the water:

Finally, the abortion plank. Yes it needs to be modified. Since leftist want to murder over a million innocents a year and GOPers want to stop them, they should definitely try to save as many babies as possible by allowing for rape abortions (a small percentage).

Leftists (e.g. murderers and thieves) cannot find it in their hearts to commend these Republicans (though misguided) for their noble desire to protect life. And instead of honoring that worthy goal they defame GOPers because of the rape clause.

What is worse? Allowing a few rape babies to live (and the reason you are outraged that they live is because you have to admit they are human beings which you pretend they are not. Or allowing 1.3 million or so to die each year.

In the sum of things it is more noble to allow several thousand to live than to allow a million or so to die.

But I'm for a rape clause in the GOP platform. Once it is in place will you stop advocating the slaughter of nearly a million a year?

I doubt it.

TAMPA, Fla. – "There is something about a national convention that makes it as fascinating as a revival or a hanging. It is vulgar, it is ugly, it is stupid, it is tedious, it is hard upon both the higher cerebral centers and the gluteus maximus, and yet it is somehow charming. One sits through long sessions wishing heartily that all the delegates and alternates were dead and in hell -- and then suddenly there comes a show so gaudy and hilarious, so melodramatic and obscene, so unimaginably exhilarating and preposterous that one lives a gorgeous year in an hour."
