"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Single Payer Health Care: Obama

First we need to take back the White House...check
Then we need to take back Senate...check
Then we need to take back the House...check

Then Single Payer Health Care...in President Obama's own words:

Once again President Obama wishes to change the system in which over 84% of Americans are covered. The problem is with 16% yet a complete overhaul costing trillions of dollars is the best option? Why? Why won't our political class participate in this deluxe program that they suggest is the best for the American people?

Problems do exists in our system- but the world comes to the US for all their medical treatments and procedures it must not be that bad. Canadians cross the border daily to have basic care provided because their universal health plan is not what it is cracked up to be. The stats on survival from cancers five years out in country's with universal health plans vs the US's current system cannot be matched. Hands down the US has the highest survival rates. This is a simple google search...please be a wise citizen. Do not spew talking points of the Left or the Right because they are your team. This is not a sporting event- the world(believe it or not) is counting on us not going to a universal system. Go to the library- research the problems with this. Funny many can site how Medicare is a problem, but do not continue on this path and logically see that heading further down this will be even more detrimental.

I am not hating on a black man because I feel this way. I am no longer a Republican or a Democrat. I am an American and I am going to stand and become one who has decided to take back my nation from a ruling Political Class that is living high off the sweat of my brow...I do not need people who have no touch with reality leading anymore.

Joe the Plumber where are you? It is time for you and me and the rest of us to step up and take back our country.

Oh Jen, we are beginning to come forward!!! Praise God. The recent numbers showing up at the town meetings as the senators & representatives come home for this recess. Let the "new" talking heads call us what they like, and say what they like they haven't seen the tip of this iceberg yet. I still have faith in true Christians and true Americans. Not those in name only.

Hi Jen,
As horrible as this is, and it IS horrible, it makes me wonder if this is a distraction for something else.... I've read that the oil companies are already slowing production because of cap and trade and we'll feel it this winter. No idea if it is true, but it makes me suspicious. - Especially because were not hearing about that AT ALL.

Back to healthcare itself.... If we break down the numbers they are using and take out people making over $50,000 (who we presume could afford some health care insurance if they chose), illegal aliens, etc. then we come to a VERY SMALL percentage of the working poor who can't afford insurance - and given the generousity of the American people I'm SURE they would be willing to help despite horrible economic conditions.

Purposeful destruction is happening before our very eyes.

Of course I agree, Jen!
We no longer have our voices---it is dictated what we think or say....

We the people need to start yelling--
not as an angry mob as we have been so accused, but as a people with minds that can sift thru rhetoric and decide it's just not good enough for us and our needs...

We are the strongest nation in the world....how can one leader be our demise?? I hope all those switch over voters are happy with CHOICE---theirs!!!
