For years, the Democrats have been pushing for a government-run health care system modeled after England, Canada, and some European countries. Obama and his cronies, knowing that he couldn’t get his Marxist/Socialist agenda passed through the objections of the American people at this time, proposed a back door method of attaining that goal by proposing a “loser” law called Obamacare (a/k/a the (Un)Affordable Care Act). Their future goal was and is a single-payer health care plan run by the government (which comprises 1/6 of the U.S. economy).
Obama, being the dishonest politician that he is, tried to hide his motives by telling the American people that his health care plan would save them money, with a semblance of the “free market”, with private insurance companies providing the means of delivery. As you can see, the plan is not taking hold the way he and the other Democrats said it would work, and being the “narcissist” that he is, he will not admit that it is his fault, instead he is starting to blame the insurance companies and the Republicans for its imminent failure - it’s always somebody else’s fault, never his fault.
According to my scenario, when Obamacare crumbles, he will propose that instead of abandoning Obamacare and starting over, he will propose that the U.S. government should take over the means of giving the U.S. citizens health care by using a “single-payer” system like they have in the predominantly Socialist oriented countries mentioned previously. That has been Obama’s and the liberal Democrats goal all along. All the movers and shakers in the Democratic Party have been championing “single-payer” for many years, so when they captured the White House and both houses of Congress in 2008, they went for the kill, and by some shady dealings and arm-twisting of reluctant Democrats, they passed Obamacare in the dead of night without one Republican vote in either the House or Senate.
The ensuing lawsuits, after passage, claiming the law unconstitutional, made it all the way up to the Supreme Court where it looked like the court was going to knock the law down by a 5-4 vote. Up till that time, Obama claimed that penalizing non-compliers of the law was a fee and not a tax, which the opponents of the law proclaimed was why the law should be declared unconstitutional. By some freak of logic, the court ruled, with Chief Justice Roberts casting the deciding vote, that the charges for non-compliance were in fact taxes and, therefore the Congress could pass that legislation. The court ruled 5-4. In hindsight, we can blame the fickle Chief Judge Roberts, with putting us in the morass we now find ourselves. What was he thinking?
It’ll be just a matter of time, when the present Obamacare law implodes, and the Democrats will be proposing a full government takeover of our healthcare system using “single-payer” as the means administering it. Remember that has been their goal for over 100 years.
In order to get rid of this monstrosity, next years mid-term elections zoom as being pivotal in possibly getting rid of it, not just amending it as some suggest. In addition, some other lawsuits are plodding their way through the courts that could throw a monkey wrench into the law succeeding.
Of course, with ominous clouds of defeat hanging over the heads of some Democratic lawmakers coming up for re-election and having the albatross of Obamacare hanging around their necks, they might rise up and demand that Obamacare be repaired or discarded in hopes of saving their chances at election time.
So if you want to get rid of Obamacare, you must work hard to defeat those Congressmen and Senators, in 2014, who voted in favor of this monstrosity of a law. That’s the first step before the next presidential election in 2016.

Predictions re: ObamaKerry
Secretary of State John (rhymes with 'yawn') F. Kerry, who proudly served in Viet Nam for four months - and awarded himself three 'Lavender Heart' decorations for invisible wounds - and who is Barack Obama's 'Diplomatic Bumbler-of-Choice' will, in the next twelve months - - -
- find a way to prostitute the United States to Iran by cleverly cobbling together an agreement whereby we loosen economic sanctions that will relieve most of the pain currently being inflicted upon that nation - led by vicious, smiling, blood-thirsty cretins - in return for which we receive absolutely nothing from Iran's leaders, except deception, delay and worthless words about peaceful applications of their ongoing nuclear research. The reality is of course, the totally transparent farce being pumped out by Iran that attempts to obscure their relentless race toward a capability to manufacture nuclear- tipped missiles. That is, if they do not already possess that capacity.
Expect ObamaKerry to find new & improved ways to further erode our already stressed relations with Israel by more back-stabs and public slaps-in-the-face of Prime Minister Netanyahu - re-iterating as if to prove beyond a shadow of doubt, that Obama despises Jews and Israel - and is intent on making it crystal clear that despite his phony-baloney , bullshit 'pronouncements of loyalty to Israel', there is zero chance of the United States offering any support whatsoever to 'our closest ally in the Middle East' - when push comes to shove with a nuclear Iran. The Nobel Peace Prize committee is probably, already making preparations for next year's ObamAward, as this is being written. This is the lunatic world we live in.
And, here is my general, all-inclusive prediction that ObamaKerry, the Diplomatic Bumbler-of-Choice, will manage somehow, to subjugate our nation to Russia's Putin, China's 'President What's-his-Face - - and every other corrupt, tyrannical dictator who occupies a seat in the 'Circle of Fiends' - all cretins large & small - located on our very own East River in NYC. Remember them? They are the peaceful folks who spend most of their time dining in New York's finest eateries, parking anywhere they damned please without consequences, voting to condemn Israel and who ironically, refer to themselves as, The United Nations.
There isn't a chance in Hell, that I'll be wrong regarding any one of these prognostications.

Unfortunately, for the past two presidential election cycles, the U.S. electorate elected and then re-elected a president that has not had a beneficial effect on our society. It seems to me that the people voted for a candidate, Barack Hussein Obama, because of the color of his skin, not on the content of his character. Martin Luther King would be turning over in his grave if he could witness what is happening in and to our country today.
Scandal after scandal, race relations at a boiling point, our economy under performing, and our foreign policy in a shambles, all because the majority of the voting public “wanted change”. Well, they got that change all right, right in the solar plexus, and it will take years to undo the damage Obama and his flunky’s have done to the country. Lying with a straight face seems to be the national pastime in Wash. D.C. today.
I have never, in my many years of observing politics, seen such a “cult” worship on the part of a goodly portion of the electorate who consider Obama their “Messiah”, and that includes many in the main stream media. The term that best describes this condition is called “cognitive dissonance”.
Can you imagine if Mitt Romney, a righteous man with enormous administrative and business experience, was elected in 2012, how things would be different than they are today? We would now be in the process of dismantling that monstrosity called the (Un)Affordable Care Act (a/k/a Obamacare). All the chaos that we are experiencing now would be mitigated by a president who could see the deficiencies of this ill-conceived law. Under a Pres. Romney, we would be opening up all areas for our exploration of our natural resources of oil, coal, and natural gas thereby making us free from importing much of our energy needs from countries that are not friendly to us and who have bilked us over the years with inflated energy prices. Under Romney, we’d be able to reduce the duplication and waste in a bloated federal government, in addition to trying to reduce our national debt by not throwing good taxpayer money down the proverbial rat hole, in hopes of generating future votes from the “low information” voters in future elections.
The worst thing a Republican, Conservative, or Independent voter could do is to stay home at election time and not vote because they didn’t agree with 100% of a candidates position on various issues. That’s what happened to Romney and now look what we are saddled with - 4 more years of national upset and massive political ignorance.
Yes, elections do have consequences, and if you don’t see it now, you never will. Forget about a 3rd Party and for looking for that “100% pure” ideological candidate, there “ain’t” no such animal, otherwise, we’ll have another 4 years of “progressive lunacy”, in the name of Hillary Rodham Clinton. We can’t afford another Marxist/Socialist in the White House, along with her “horn-dog” of a first husband by the name of Slick Willie Clinton. A word to the wise should be sufficient.

The main reason people accumulate debt is by making purchases and bad
choices they can't afford, or have the money to pay for them.
Like many modern innovations to ease and better life like a credit card and
technology, it is becoming evident they are being miss used and becoming
a detriment from their original purpose.
My credit card is a convenience, not an unsteady crutch that's never used for
purchases that cannot be backed with cash in the bank. A loan is never
secured if there is chance it can default. Only an unforeseen act of God can
cause my reneging on an obligation.
This is not how the government operates, especially the present one. It is
abusive when dealing with the economy, because it spends money that isn't
theirs nor has.
Like storms originating in Africa through the Cape Verde Islands, the tempest
in Washington was originated by an African-American from the White House.
The President claims he is willing to meet and sit down with anyone to resolve
the partial shutdown of services and pending debt ceiling, as long as it
doesn't interfere with his Affordable Care Act and increased spending. At
the same time he continues to accuse Republicans of obstructing his economy
from moving ahead. The only movement on his part is his bowels. We've had
enough of his bowel movements, a.k.a., B.S. since his 2009 inauguration.
Obamacare was the law of the land in a partisan vote, affirmed by the Supreme
Court, until the President altered and amended it without congressional
approval; therefore it no longer remains invulnerable. If it is to survive,
it must apply to everyone from the President down to all government
personnel and their families without exemptions or waivers. This applies
to extensions too.
The House appropriates funds to run the government and other essentials,
but is known to overestimate the funds required, lacing a clean bill with,
'you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours ' bills designed for their
constituents' consumption and re-election votes that spills into the Senate.
The way polls have been taken to apply blame for the shutdown is misleading.
The query is split three ways between the President, Democrats and Republicans,
instead of two. The President is head of the Democratic party and should not be
separated from it, because they do his bidding, so the favorable count is
erroneous due to duplicity.
In a nut shell, President Obama is trying to force Republicans and tax payers
to cosign the checks he and his phony liberal administration wrote that are
sure to bounce.

Sarah Palin was about many issues regarding the incompetent Barack Hussein Obama.
We have a YouTube Video with Bill Whittle and one of his "AFTERBURNER" productions.
Mr. Whittle wants you to guess who said that Sarah Palin was RIGHT and that there are essentially bureaucratic death panels overseeing the Obamacare disaster. A hint is that it is a well-known Democrat.

The word Socialist has been bandied about ever since Barack Hussein Obama ascended to the Office of President. Many people have claimed that Obama is a Socialist - which many Democrats (and even Obama himself) get quite upset when they deny it. But, is there a legitimate case for that claim?
There really is an organized group in the United States that is called the Democratic Socialists of America and many of our politicians belong to that group. The DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) is the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International (the world-wide Socialist organization). Some of the prominent politicians (mostly all Democrats) who belong to the DSA (now sometimes called the Progressive Caucus) includes, Sen. Bernie Sanders (an avowed Socialist), Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Rep. John Conyers, Rep. Alan Grayson, Rep. Charlie Rangel, Rep. Henry Waxman etc. In fact, a total of approx. 70 members of Congress are members of the DSA, including most all the members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
What do Democratic Socialists believe in? According to their website, they believe in a humane international social order based on democratic planning and market mechanisms to achieve equitable distribution of resources; meaningful work; a healthy environment; sustained growth; gender and social equality; and non-oppressive relationships. Who could be against some of those nice sounding goals? Well, not everything that sounds good on paper can actually work out well in actual practice, as history seems to have shown us.
If you read between the lines, you can see many of the policies espoused by Obama and the Democrats are quite similar to the policies espoused by the DSA. They mention democratic planning (a/k/a central planning); market mechanisms (government run agencies like Obamacare); distribution of resources (also known as income redistribution from the rich to the poor); healthy environment (pushing policies about stemming global warming (a/k/a climate change). Obama and his Administration have echoed many of these policies in how they approach the handling of our government.
The DSA has strong support among the labor unions in the USA, as many of the labor leaders are avowed Socialists. Pres. Obama is a strong supporter of labor unions and has pushed for advantages to benefit the labor unions. For example, he has introduced the EFCA (Employee Free Choice Act) which would make it easier for labor unions to attempt to organize companies by doing away with secret ballot elections when the unions try to organize workers at various companies, and he has granted them special waivers for some of his most controversial policies (like in Obamacare).
Most of the influential people in Obama’s life have been people associated with Marxist/Socialist policies and ideas. His mentor during his teens in Hawaii, Frank Marshall Davis, was an avowed Marxist/Socialist; the leftist professors in college he associated with; his political benefactor who was instrumental in getting him started in politics, Bill Ayers, an admitted terrorist and Socialist; his pastor and black liberation preacher, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, is a Socialist with racist ideals. In addition, in both his presidential campaigns, the DSA worked for and supported his candidacy. An expression my mother told me as to why people do certain things went like this, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”, this sort of explains how Obama acts and speaks, gleaned from his past associations.
So it is, in my estimation, that it is a safe bet to say that our President, Barack Hussein Obama, is a Socialist, whether he or the Democrats want to admit it or not.
