DR2K saidRepublicans are seriously some of the most ignorant and selfish people on this planet.
You mean liberals?
The people that live liberal countries come here when they need major surgeries or have major illnesses because their health care sucks! Everywhere that universal health care exists, it results in lower technology, higher waiting lists, and higher costs for society. The people of those countries are stuck with a sub-standard health care system – and the rich pay to go to the United States, or other countries, for better treatment. Doctors also leave in droves because of the lower salaries and bad working conditions. Liberals like to call it “free” health care, but someone has to pay for it, and guess what, it’s those of us with good jobs and salaries. We have to cover all of the people that refuse to work, refuse to better themselves and get a better paying job, and of course, illegal aliens. Also, after you subtract illegal aliens, Americans that qualify for government programs, and Americans that choose not to pay for health insurance, we’re left with only about 3% of Americans that don’t earn enough to pay for health insurance and don’t qualify for current government programs. A better solution is to make health care more affordable and for the government to expand their current programs to encompass more of the poor. You say you’d rather wait 6 months for an MRI – well if it was something serious, you’d be dead before you’d get the chance.
A person is a socialist if they believe the government should provide everything for them. They basically think we should all go to work and then put our money in a big pot and distribute it out evenly. How is that fair? Oh yeah, it’s great for the person that doesn’t work or has a crappy job – but it’s definitely not fair to the middle class and the rich. Liberals don’t believe that all Americans should pay the same percentage of taxes either. They think that people that make more money should pay more taxes, which is ridiculous. So how can you say that “liberals . . . value individual rights and equal opportunity"? And the democrats want to tax businesses even more – which results in higher prices for us and lower wages.
Not to mention how liberals want to downsize our military. You're living in a dream world if you think we can all live in some utopian society where everyone is equal and there are no wars. There will always be wars because there are evil people in the world. And there are always going to be rich people and poor people, and those like myself who are in the middle. If you're poor, then you need to do whatever it takes to get out of your situation. But instead, most of them would rather sit on their asses collecting a welfare check and pushing out more babies.
Anyway, I can go on and on, but I won't because I'm sure you won't get it anyway. Liberals are the most closed-minded people on earth.
Oh yeah, one more thing.... You libs want to say **** about gas prices, but you're the ones refusing let us drill in Alaska for our own oil. So when you're at the pump paying $4+ gallon for gas, just remember that at least you're protecting the stupid caribou!
You can think what you like. Obama is a socialist. It's in his history.
