Underlying erroneous assumption: the federal government has any such authority when it comes to health care. It is precisely because Boehner and others in the Republican Party do not even question whether the government has such power they are referred to as RINOs and must be replaced.

I agree that government has no authority in requiring and providing healthcare. However, we are among a minority, and a dying breed. I listen to what is said around me. Most people want some form of government healthcare. We're going to be presented with two options, a Republican plan, or the Democrats transforming the fatally flawed obamacare, into a single payer system.

There is no third option.

I know, Relic, sadly I know. The Constitution is now a mere scrap of paper with some words on it. The American people have lost that sense of freedom which burned so brightly just over 200 years ago. Collectivism is ascendant and the Republic is dying.

How does Tammy Fay Boehner intend to get the replacement, get Putin to negotiate it?

In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

That would be like telling Hitler to do away with anti-Jewish laws.

I'll repeat myself, at the risk of being rude.

It's one Party, not two, with the same goal in mind, giving us the impression that there are two parties with opposite goals in mind.

I guess you missed McConnell and Boehner themselves declaring war on the conservative wing of the GOP... and taking Democrat money to help wage that war.  If the GOP is one party then we've become a three party country when there isn't a home in the two parties for a very large Conservative faction.

Uh, no, this is not my goal, nor the goal of anyone who seriously seeks to curtail collectivism:

It may not be your goal, but it appears to be our reality.

Even if the latter were true, and that is open to dispute, you originally stated: It's one Party, not two, with the same goal in mind, giving us the impression that there are two parties with opposite goals in mind., which is not the case, and is but one more instance of you indulging in the error of overstating what is, interestingly enough, reality.

The single party is not Democrat or Republican. The single party is 'the Government'.
 
The government represents themselves only. The government represents 'the government'. Nothing will change untill these guys are kicked out, one way or another.
 
We are currently living in the last days of the Roman Empire. These politicians can cheat and steal and take as much as they want. What good will it be in a hundred or a thousand years. Nothing.
 
But they will have sold their everlasting soul for something as simple as fear and greed.
