Well, government control of health care could be called Communist. Or it could be called Fascist - it depends on the details, Obamacare leans more towards the Fascist side.


 


So all of the countries that have a Universal Health Care Plan are Communists?   Really?

 

Obamacare was actually first drafted by the Heritage Foundation, a Republican think tank. Romney put the plan in his state before Obamacare came along. So ........ saying that Obamacare is Fascist is calling the Republicans Fascist.


It was offered as an experiment in one State - quite different from having the Central government in charge of 16th of our national economy.

 

Note: you started with "Communist" and then used "Fascist" making my point that you really do not know one of your insulting terms from the other and just throw them out there.


boo!

Just a guess, but I'd say rk stopped thinking about political systems sometime before 1962 when William F. Buckley denounced the John Birch Society as "far removed from common sense" and urged the GOP to purge JBS members, esp founder Robert Welsh, from their ranks.

 

This is based on the fact rk continues to regurgitate JBS slogans and dogma, trying to tie all advances in social justice to The Communist Menace, which was the line JBS pitched from the getgo. I guess enough time has past so people have forgotten what a misbegotten group of fascists JBS was and is.


Actually, rk's interest in political ideology continued long past the days of Buckley, Birch, Welsh, Rothbard, McCarthy, Rand, and the rest.

 

Were to you read and actually think about rk's posts would would not make inane statements as the one above about the "Communist Menace" - that goes back to the days of the USSR and the Cold War.

 

What rk has been posting about is the idealistic thinking of Karl Marx and the dangers it contains as exhibited by any place where it has been used as a national model.

 

Unfortunately, such scholarly thinking does not offer the opportunity to vent one's envy and anger at the successful with nonsense terms like Reagan taxscam, Uberrich, GOPerLords, etc. No, actually thinking requires more effort - actual thinking.

I gave him a KUDOS because he gave you some of your own medicine (you change what others post quite regularly).  Did that medicine go down in "oh the most delightful way"?


Option A - offer a single example of me changing a post of another;

Option B - make it obvious that you are just lying to support a liar.

 

And temember, I am not talking about an interpretation or a differing opinion. I am talking about changing the actual words under:

Just being honest.


It sounds like you are saying that among your fellow posters there are Nazi, fascists, alt-rightists, white supremacists, and racists. Would you care to specify who is which? Or are they just all interchangeable terms without any real meaning that you use to describe anyone who disagrees with you politically?
