HotWingConspiracy: Garet Garrett: Esc7: Let me guess, taxation is theft?The so-called public university that I attended taught that all property is theft.No it didn't.Why do you pretend to be a lawyer on the internet?
qorkfiend: zarberg: You'd think that bastion of fiscal responsibility known as the Republican party would want the less expensive preventative careI'm desperately trying to remember the last time a Republican practiced anything even remotely resembling fiscal responsibility.
IlGreven: Serious Black: Serious Black: He actually went further than advocating for Romneycare. Jim DeMint advocated for completely universal and mandated coverage, which goes beyond what Romneycare (or Obamacare) does.Since I'm sure somebody will ask for a citation, here's part of a letter he signed and sent to President Bush in 2007:"We would like to work with [President Bush] and your administration to pass legislation in this Congress that would ensure that all Americans would have affordable, quality, private health coverage, while protecting current government programs. We believe the health care system cannot be fixed without providing solutions for everyone. Otherwise, the costs of those without insurance will continue to be shifted to those who do have coverage."Key word. The only real change to Obamacare is this word to "public"...but that makes all the difference in the world./Private good, Public baaaaaad.//Which is why we let private megacorps get away with things we'd excoriate the eeeeeeeebil gubmint for.
AurizenDarkstar: Truly, he has a dizzying intellect./not really
Bontesla: djkutch: I wish the GOP shrills would offer an alternative plan to Obamacare. Maybe they are too busy with laser like focus on job creation?They're still trying to eliminate medicare and social security.I don't think they want to replace it. They just want to end it.
Garet Garrett: Esc7: Let me guess, taxation is theft?The so-called public university that I attended taught that all property is theft. But that has different implications, doesn't it?But no, I don't believe that taxation is theft. But you don't have to be a hard-core libertarian to believe that all government action, including taxation, is inherently coercive, as it's always done with the background threat of force (what happens if you don't get a permit to fix your septic system? and then refuse to pay the fine?). Likewise, that that's the key difference between cooperative action on the so-called private level and cooperative action on the so-called public level. If you have a more basic distinction, I'd love to hear it.

Garet Garrett: Satanic_Hamster: Right wingers; These are your leaders and heroes. Unabashed liars and bullshiatters. Defend this bullshiat, you trolling lying farks. Defend your leader and hero Jim DeMint.DO IT.DO IT.Just as soon as you admit that Obama was a knuckle-dragging homophobe until a few months ago.
