The Democrats and President Obama are trying to institute health care reform. They will create such a fucked-up mess that everyone will pay more and suffer more. Health care will benefit only people who are not very ill.
The blame lies, in my opinion, with the REPUBLICANS. For several years, they had virtual control of the legislative and executive branches of government. Everybody who thinks knows that health care is in need of reform. Republican sponsored reform would have been fucked-up too, but it would have been better than the abortion being sponsored by the Democrats now. When they had the opportunity, the Republicans simply ignored the problem. Too expensive, so we will just ignore it.
Every thinking person knows that in politics, as in everything else in life, the pendulum swings back and forth. The Republicans could not hold on to power indefinitely, so they should have addressed this issue when they had the chance.
Now we have this national nightmare that will last for generations before being fixed or abandoned. Thanks a lot, you self-serving politicians who call yourselves Republicans. You deferred the decision until the neo-communists who call themselves the Democratic party were able to call all the shots.
I would like to propose that we march to Washington, DC, with pitchforks, torches, and AK-47's, and lynch the entire lot of them; both Houses of Congress, the Executive branch, and the Supreme Court.
Of course, realistically speaking, the problem is, we would simply have replacement politicians filling in the gap, probably in about two weeks, and everything would be back the way it was.
Maybe a military takover would be good?
Just thinking out loud.
There is another form of temptation, even more fraught with danger. This is the disease of curiosity... It is this which drives us to try and discover the secrets of nature, those secrets which are beyond our understanding, which can avail us nothing and which man should not wish to learn.

He is a revered figure in Christianity and western culture, and whether we subscribe to his philosophy and views or not, everyone deserves at least to be described accurately. - James Carr.
