Australia has about 22 million people to take care of health-wise, the United States has over 314 million people. There's clearly not a strain on resources that will be here if universal health care kicks in. Not to mention EVERYONE's taxes will go sky high to pay for it. That means, down the road, that there will be a rationing of care and it will boil down to one person being denied it because the government felt it had to go to this person instead. You see that in other nations right now, that's why Canadians come down to the United States to get procedures done that they were denied. I'm sorry, but I refuse to put my health decisions in the hands of the government.
At least when Bush was running the show, we showed that we were strong and willing to do what it takes to defend the United States. Obama has proven to be nothing more than a weak apologist that is over his head when it comes to foreign matters. He apologizes for all that America has not done right, but forgets all the good we do. That's why Al-Qaeda has grown stronger now, with a regional presence in northern Africa. That's why Iran is speeding along with its wanting of building a nuclear arsenal. That's why we have alienated our allies in the Middle East and Europe, and emboldened our enemies.
If what happened to the Libyan ambassador happened on a Republican's watch, the outcry from the media and many liberals/Dems in this country would be off the Richter scale. Those that are silent now for that reason are unpatriotic and borderline treasonous. And yes, I will call those people unpatriotic for the simple reason they are fine with what's going on because one of their own is in power, where if the other party was running the show they'd be screaming up a storm.
I understand the economy still needs work, but Obama has made things worse over his four years. The bailouts and stimulus plans haven't worked, and right now the economy is about to collapse worldwide. China and Europe are also teetering as well, won't be long before the bottom drops out if we don't do something about it. And spending our way out won't do anything but push us over the fiscal cliff. We can't keep spending money we don't have.
Not to mention that Obama makes no effort to compromise or work with anyone.
At least Clinton, FDR, and other leaders in the past have been able to get the Reps on board with their major agenda and every other major legislation in U.S. history has had both Reps and Dems support. Obamacare had no Republican votes because it was rammed through in a partisan fashion. As far as Clinton, he's a great politician and a great speaker, but he lost any credibility for me when he lied to a grand jury about banging Monica Lewinsky. I don't care that he banged her, if I was married to Hilary I'd probably be hunting for strange outside the home myself. I care that he lied and committed perjury for it. Either he should have said it is none of your business or that he tore it up.
It's simple with the health care policy. You look at a Wall Street type figure, or a Donald Trump, they take a tax cut to help with the building of the new reformed health care, while the President and his colleagues create new jobs while also juggling to pay off the debt left by Bush Jnr and his stooges.
Yeah, when Bush was running the show, he put the country in to a fake war so he could rain out the oil from Iraq, he gave up on the priority of the whole trip, and that was to take out that evil human called Osama Bin Laden but no, Bush decided to take on Iraq..for God knows what reason. It's cringeworthy stuff, a ton of troops dead for..oil? It's disgusting, something that the US is still recovering from, it's terrible.
Obama was given all of those bad problems by Bush..you really expect him to get rid of all of the debt just like "that"? I even knew back in 2008 or so that no matter who got voted in, they couldn't all of a sudden end the financial crisis..it was/is very messy. Obama inherited a lot of problems from Bush. While the Wall Street rich guys ran away with their money, and payouts...it's a joke. How can anyone not reflect back on those circumstances and think "Shit, that was bad..it's going to take a bit to recover from that mess.." And it will, Obama is doing his best..it will only get better from here on in, granted..it wont be like 2000 all over again but it will somewhat improve.
What happened in Libya was terrible, the poor guy didn't deserve anyof what he got..just a tragedy and actually beyond terrible. See, the thing is..the embassy is authorised..if you are saying "Oh, well, the right wing would get this and that if it was on their watch" And if you are referring back to the Iraq War etc. the "War" wasn't even authorised, it was an invasion! Totally different things. It's just a tragedy what happened and no one can deny that.
Again, the economy is a mess. Obama is doing his very best to fix it, and again..the Republicans fucked everything up, Obama is doing the best he can..it will get better soon.
So what if Bill got a blowjob from Monica??? It's not worse than fucking up a whole economic system like Bush did. It's not just Bush either, guys like Rupert Murdouch fucked a lot of things up by CHEATING to get Bush in to office. The world can be a fucked up place.
