I use the term "socialist" because it describes the philosophy of liberal policies. The term "democracy", imo, isn't as benign as some would think.
The Roman Empire was a "democracy". As was the USSR; and as is China, NKorea, etc. Democracy is imperial and totalarian -- aka "Communism". The system of govt.
I never said that the ACA/Obamacare is the "single payer" system that Dingie Harry, Pelosi, BO, and the rest of the radical left are salivating over. But the transition, should it occur, would not be dificult to execute -- as the system has already been in place since 1965: Medicaid.
AAnyone who really wants to know how "well" the "single payer" would operate only has to go as far as the V.A. hospitals.
NOT GOOD AT ALL!
But, then again, the fed govt couldn't even run their Congsresnioal Cafeteria -- let alone the USPS!
Luis, I have not endorsed ACA. The current ACA is not a single payer system. In my last reply I simply posed a few questions that I felt pertinent to an assertion by me that the Obama push on raising the minimum wage just probably a joke on those workers who would think they were receiving a better deal.
Now once in awhile I have invoked the term socialist but in all honesty I refrain from the terms commonly used by posters that end in "ist". They detract from the dialogue at hand. I often decide the user of these words do not have a good understanding of them.
I do however think that what we see as socialism is directly tied to "pure" democracy. Not desirable at all.
Luis I like to see your posting but your last post sent me over the top --
BO to O'reilly: There isn't a SMIDGEN of corruption at the IRS!Sounds like, "You can KEEP" your plans...PERIOD!
Pat, your comment is consistent. You did, after all, admit that you favor the fully communist health care system that is a "single payer" system.
Wages should be EARNED by MERIT and EXPERIENCE. Giving away "trophies" to those JUST FOR ARTICIPATING teaches NO values.
Nor does it promote self-accoutnability at all.
All it does is INCREASE COSTS and further diminishes the buying-power of the $. HOW is that for-the-good of ANYTHING?
Liberaalism and progressivism ARE social cancers. They are destroyi
ng the very fabric of our God Granted RIGHTS to Liberty and Freedom.
Not all sure I am against raising the minimum wage. States not set at minimum wage tied to Federal can choose to do or not. This whole thing is designed as a joke pulled on the democratic poor base and as well to make republicans look more sad.
Some states all ready raised (13) although not to 10+. Think about this point. Raising minimum wage will the gov't pay out less subsidies in healthcare or food stamps. Will the gov't and states rake in more sales tax? The big joke as I stated is own those who think they are getting something for free. Nothing is a free lunch.
Minimum wage is a "freebie" too. It's just another level of Marxism.
Until obamacare raised its Evil Specter in America . . . raising the Minimum Wage was the fastest way to guarantee those entering the job market probably wouldn't enter the job market, learn a skill or have a chance to raise their income when they proved valuable to the employer.
Unemployment and Freebies are obama's Nirvana . . . once hooked by these it's hard to get off and re-enter the job market. We have somewhere around 90 million folks no longer in the job market, of which, probably, 50%+ (a WAG) are experiencing the 'Freebies' phenomenon.
