Jason, if that's what you want then you should be pleased -- that's what we have! Our debt is quite small and manageable in terms of our total wealth. The extreme position is to shut down the govt in a last ditch effort to stop legislation which has passed fairly, including a supreme court challenge and a national election.
So you're saying, Henry, that if a poor person comes to a hospital emergency room with a medical crisis they should receive precisely as much care as they can afford? Of course healthcare is in "the government purview." If it wasn't it would be necessary to rewrite the constitution to include it. Do you really think drug companies should operate guided by market forces only, without govt oversight?

Yet again, your grasp on the English is tenuous, WJF. Health care is not a commodity. It is a necessity. Do you have the right to emergency room services?
I don't know many Native Americans - in fact I know exactly two. But both of them are very offended by the name "redskins." So why not change the name? I think we should.
What would "winning" even look like, red-dot? You honestly believe that the re-elected president and democrat-controlled Senate should void their signature legislation, which has already passed a supreme court challenge, because a minority has held the country hostage over paying the bills? That is no way for a country to operate. If you could even for a moment imagine the tables turned you would realize that. You don't like Obamacare -- elect enough people to repeal it.
WJF, since you seem to be involved in a strange experiment that alters the basic definition and usage of terms, perhaps you should provide a glossary with your posts. The Marxism I'm talking about is the historical one, which proposes an economic system not based on private ownership of the "means of production" which pays daily rates to laborers, put a system in which the workers also own a piece of the company they work for and share in its profits. A system in place today, for instance, in the kibbutzim farms in Israel. The motto for those farms would not be "change." "Equality" maybe? Or "Ownership"? I don't know. My point is, again, that you would have to aggressively ignorant of simple definitions of words to think that Marxism and change are interchangeable terms.
"If Marxist thinking could be described in one word it would be 'Change'." Absolutely, positively false. Aggressively ignorant. If there was a Marxist system in place would the word to describe it still be "change"? That's ludicrous. Change means change, not "marxism." Can you really not tell the difference between a positive quote from a communist about Obama and the actual content of Obama's agenda and speeches (which contain no communism)? I will tell you - I'm paranoid because people like yourself live in my country and seem hell-bent on taking us down a path of destruction.
MacQ - you know he's right though, don't you? This isn't news -- just uncomfortable fact.
genious. I love it! My car insurance is paid up. I feel so much safer with it, and am so pleased to live in a society that mandates it. Very much like... (can you guess?)
