As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

Talk Of Socialism is Food For Chumps

There has been talk from the rightwing and religious right that Obama is a socialist and the new healthcare bill is socialism but that is funny because Obama essentially offered this bill as a compromise to the Republicans. Do you want to know why?
You see, this healthcare bill is for the most part the same bill the Republicans were offering back in the 90's. It was their business oriented, free market oriented alternative they so strongly supported against the Democrats.

Here is the Republican healthcare bill of 1993: http://www.kaiserhealthnews.org/Stories/2010/February/23/GOP-1993-health-reform-bill.aspx

So... Hello!, it is the height of political hyprocrisy for the Republicans to cry such that they have and the way they have about Obama's healthcare bill, his offering to them and the religious right are at about the same height if they claim anything approximating honesty -Proverbs 12:17 and plenty more.
The Republicans are playing obstructionist politics for their self-centered interests and any talk of this healthcare bill as socialism is ludicrous because it is the biggest gift that the private healthcare industry has ever seen. It is a monumental offering to the private healthcare industry in the form of thousands of new premiums and it is so very much what the corporate serving Republicans wanted to offer the health insurance industry only a few years ago but now in the name of political revenge and bitterness the Republicans feign they are appalled by the health insurance bill, LOL!!
America should be laughing their heads off at the Republicans and some are but for the most part they are buying into the fear factor that is drummed into their heads at the hands of rightwing Republican talk radio shows that fill over 90% of the country's airwaves. It is a rightwing mantra that goes on and on through the airwaves of this nation with incredibly sensationalistic untruths and deception that on a mass scale can throw many people into a delusional and paranoid state of mind. One might be led to think that from all the tripe flying around out there the passage of this bill will mean American will no longer have a vote or any control over their government, that we are essentially signing off into Lenin/Stalin communism and socialism except that....this is originally the Republican's healthcare bill.

This all is of course why thousands of U.S. corporations and businesses contributed millions of dollars to get Obama and the democrats elected with Obama's healthcare mandate. These hardworking lifelong corporate capitalists wanted to give up their luxuries and priviledges so they could set as financial equals with all of us.

Want to be a chump? Keep believing what the rightwing talking "heads" are telling you.
