"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. 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."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

I am experiencing this right now.

It's the 'other' front in Obama's war on the United States' people.

All part of the plan.

It's called eugenics, and it's been a more than century long goal of the Progressives.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

The purpose of socialized medicine is to reduce the % of GNP that is diverted to 'healthcare'.  Socialized medicine always restricts supply to 'save money' and sick people end up dying rather than being treated with often expensive methods.  It's not like this is a big secret or anything.

It always works this way and you can be sure that your government 'leaders' know that...

The thing that pisses me off.....those the same age as myself, who happened to have worked for the government, or be a member of a major union....with "Cadillac" plans, are seeing specialists as quickly as it takes to fill up your tank.  Those that were self employed and on mandatory Medicare (with supplement Part B), are told, there's a 3 week wait.   And that's to see my cardiologist.

Not upset that I have to wait.   I'm upset that IMO, it's upside down.   Getting 70% of your current salary and free Cadillac coverage for life is nonsense.
