Republicans Reveal They Are The Stupidest People To Ever Walk On This Planet

Obamacare To Be Replaced With Republican CommunistCare

Communist Ryan

March 7, 2017

Paul Ryan today revealed that he has no intention of replacing Obamacare, but instead to leave it in place and just tinker around the edges.

Republicans ran on and were elected on the promise of repealing the mammoth, one-size-fits-all, unconstitutional, destructive law, however, apparently that was a lie almost as bad as "You can keep your doctor".

In January 2016, republicans sent Obama a bill to repeal Obamacare (which he vetoed) but they will not send the same bill to President Trump. This is possibly because they secretly love Obamacare, they knew Obama would veto the bill, and they were just placating voters.

Of course everyone can see through this ridiculous "American Heath Care Act". The dangers for republicans are 1) when this idiotic plan fails they will take all of the blame, and 2) all of the people who came out of the woodwork and voted for them in 2016 on the promise of repeal will stay at home in the next election. In fact, republicans may never win another election. Ever.

This was no surprise to Libertarians. When republicans had control of the House and Senate when George W. Bush was president, they did not repeal anything of substance and in fact grew the government and government intrusion substantially. There is one large socialist party in America; half of them call themselves democrats and half call themselves republicans.

This health care debacle is an example of the sick cycle of socialism: government creates a problem (getting squarely involved in health care in the 1960s and then expanding it for five decades and running up the cost) and now they will fix the problem with more government programs and meddling. When this new plan fails, it will be time for single payer health care, and that has been the predictable destination all along. We will all enjoy Veterans Administration style health care.

Libertarians offer the only real solution: abide by the Constitution and get the federal government completely out of health care. In a free market, costs could drop by 80% and be affordable and available, assuming people in individual states take the second step: get state governments completely out of health care.



Trump's Massive Spending Spree is Beyond Irresponsible

January 16, 2017

Mr. Trump has proposed One TRILLION dollars in pork barrel spending.  The last time I checked, we were running highly in the RED.  Who is going to pay for this? The government will borrow the money and your children and grandchildren will pay it back with interest.

That is, if anyone will want dollars. It is entirely possible that this action will drive things over the edge to the point where no one will want to buy our debt. It almost seems like they are trying to bankrupt us.

This one reckless and completely irresponsible action alone rises to the level of a "high crime".

They may choose to further wreck the paper fiat currency (the U.S. Dollar), in which case your savings and income will have less and less purchasing power.  We The People will pick up the check one way or another.

In tough economic times (or "bust", which some in the Austrian School of Economics say is the result of fractional reserve banking), individuals must make the choices necessary to balance their spending with their income.  They do not go on a shopping binge.

We are repeating the mistakes of the past, the same missteps that 88 years ago turned what would have otherwise been a mild recession into the Great Depression.  There is a wealth of knowledge available in history that shows us that Trump's plan is absolutely the wrong course of action, and will have serious consequences.

Obama's Massive Spending Spree is Beyond Irresponsible


January 16, 2009


In response to the current government-caused economic disaster, Mr. Obama has proposed One TRILLION dollars in pork barrel spending.  The last time I checked, we were running highly in the RED.  Who is going to pay for this? The government will borrow the money from the communist Chinese and your children and grandchildren will pay it back with interest.

That is, if anyone will want dollars. It is entirely possible that this action will drive things over the edge to the point where no one will want to buy our debt. It almost seems like they are trying to bankrupt us.
