Obama Care probably cannot be defeated or gotten rid of and is most likely here to stay if you listen to the words reportedly uttered by Republican Senator Rand Paul recently.
Righties don’t seem to me to be good at much of anything except being “against” something. I know of very few instances where they have ever actually been “for” something or have ever “created or originated” anything that has done anything notable to advance the best interests of The United States.
Right-Wads seem to me to like to call Obama Care “Socialized Medicine” and to rant and rave about how “Socialized Medicine” doesn’t work – - cannot work! But then I am wondering why some of these dissidents aren’t looking at the more than 40 counties in the industrialized nation where similar health care plans have been in place for quite some time now and are working out very well for them?
I have an idea: ”Let all the GOP-ers make an example for the nation by voluntarily surrendering their taxpayer-funded health care programs and purchase all they need out of their own pockets.” That should serve as a role model for leadership if anything could. Also: Let’s make it so that members of Congress work for minimum wage and that their raises are dependent on some evaluation of their productivity – - or at least on the number of hours they actually spend performing the duties of their elective offices.
Now after listening to that, my question turns to the Republican Party, The Tea Party and all other elements that I consider to be right wing in America and I am forced to ask, “Is there any hope that sometime in the forseeable future, The United States Voting Public might find some miraculous way to divest themselves of the political ball and chain that I call Radical Right-Wad-Ism that has been around all our necks all these many hectic years?
There are some – - even some on the right wing – - who are now coming around to their senses and admitting that the apparent plan by some rightist radicals to shut the American Government down for political principle is a “Stupid” idea and I am forced to ask again, “Is keeping the GOP-er party and all so-called parties with allied or similar agendas up and running a smart idea for America or is it time to vote all such nonsense out for as long as anybody can see down the road and secure the more Liberal form of government that has served this nation so well through all Her years?
There are those who tell me that “Big Money” would never allow something like to happen but I am reminded that “Big Money” has been behind a lot of governments in the past and Big Money has failed in some of those historic instances – - – so why couldn’t the influence of “Big Money” be brought under control here in America as well? I remember reading somewhere that America is a government “Of The People, By The People and For The People.” I always thought that meant “All” the people – - – rich, poor and in-between. Is that really the case? Should it be the case? Can it be the case? Was it ever the case?
I don’t know about everybody else here, folks – - but I am of the opinion that after all the rattling and prattling and obstructionism and intransigence – - and what I consider to be just plain old-fashioned ignorance and impotence of leadership – - it is time for the Righties to get their act together and act like Americans again or to simply get the Hell out of the way and let the country move forward again.
There is a great opportunity to get this kind of ball rolling as the 2014 elections and the election of 2016 roll around.
