    America must go back on The Gold Standard ASAP

    If the insurance companies continue to rip off Americans after we have a government program, then yes, it could be true that private health insurance will go away. They will have to learn to be fair and honest if they want to keep their business. As of right now they are making billions in profits and denying healthcare to millions of Americans. Take a look at your policy and see what is covered and what isn’t. Have you ever needed a presciption drug and gone to get it filled and they tell you insurance won’t cover it? I have. I needed it but had to wait weeks to get it filled until the insurance company contacted the doctor to find out why he prescibed it. That my friends is bull.

      Then I suggest you change your plan!!!!
      That is the option we have now and if this crap goes through then we all will be waiting to get pills.

    What are all of you afraid of. Why are you guys not afraid of government run schools. I think that would be the best thing, that way everyone is covered. Socialized medicine is the best thing for us.

      Someone needs to say this to you, Alan. Your first two sentences are questions. A question requires a question mark at the end of a sentence. Your third sentence is extremely vague.
      In four sentences you have revealed much about yourself. Apparently, you have something to say. The way you presented your ideas, I have to wonder if you are in grade school, or if you are having problems with high school English. I say that because your thoughts are very fuzzy. You don’t seem to understand what you’ve left out of your thoughts.
      If you are in public school, your English teacher needs to read your feedback. You can do much better.
      I hope that when you vote for the first time, you will know the truth, and that you would never want to see America destroyed through socialized medicine.

      • http://SocializedMedicine Alan

        I’m sorry to say you have summed your response to my comment to my ability to communicate through words. You must be as uneducated as you assume I am. You have given no valid points to why socialized medicine would destroy America. My ways of education does not affect the point of comment, just shows your ignorance by throwing attention somewhere else. Socialized medicine is the best thing that could happen. You must work for the insurance company because they are the only ones who get the good deal here. I am sad to see the fear of the people that capitalism has spread. Mainstream thought is swayed by every wind of doctrine.

          When you allow goverment to control any part of your life, you loose more FREEDOM.

        • Steve

          As far as socialized medicine is concerned, why should I have to pay for your health insurance?? In this country, you are entitled to all that you can earn legally…and no more. If you want socialized medicine, move to a socialist or communist country.

    This is true about Obama, but we need to address the real issue that they are really after, which is voting power. In Seattle Gregoir won against Dino Rossi in Governors’ Race even after they fired the guy who was accused of cheating, he was later picked up by California to work for the State. After Acorn mess and Obama wining the race, he took at least 2 members of the Seattle Government to add to the white house staff and Gregoir has made 8 visits to WA to meet with Obama in the last year, which in our calculation is once a month. You might notice that the one thing that a politician always fears is Election time, yet this government has no fear of up coming election.
    Our voting system if done right can be easily give predictable result to any one’s favor, i.e., absentee’s are so easy to manipulate.
    So we need to fix this as soon as possible because they are at least 8 years ahead and if they win this next election, we will be doomed..
    I believe dictators, surround themselves with large, loyal army to battle the large group that might turn against them, very similar to Castro, Iran, Sadam and so on, what better way to try to convince the Obama supporters that he is trying very hard to win the trust of the others, this I consider him expanding his Army.

    • Oscar Goldman

      You really think McCain should have won? The only reason Obama won was because of fraud? Get real!
      McCain ran a terrible campaign. He said nothing positive about things he wanted to do as President and plenty about how bad it would be if Obama won. They tried everything in the Karl Rove how to win an election play book, but this time Americans so through it. They new a vote for McCain was a vote to continue the Bush years. McCain did not want to win that election. That much is clear when he agreed to Sarah Palin as a running mate. What do you read? “Oh, everything.”

      • Shirin Murphy

        this is the beauty, you are what they are looking for, so keep defending them and see what happens, but I don’t care about the political party, I just folow the facts and I do read more then you do, because what your coment tells me, is that you just repeat what everyone else is aying on the blogs and not digging and looking for facts yourself, as most intelligent people do.

        • Billy Wells

          What facts do you follow? Do you ever listen to Sarah Palin talk? It’s very pretty but doesn’t make much sense.
          And What would McCain being doing different now? Since you have ALL the facts, I’d like to know.

    • delbert chaudoin

      for the germans to know what was in store for them all they had to do was read hitlers books. to know what is in store for america read obamas books. has anyone?

  • Shirin Murphy

    maybe if you all were paying attention, we would not be in this situation, I am not member of any political party, my job is to pick a leader that takes on the challenges and gives back to the people that are paying his or her wages.
    My comments never mentioned a specific individual, to my eye they all have to go. What Sarah Palin offered Americans, who are actually working and supporting the Legal aliens that are feeding off our money that people pay every paycheck, was an honest, normal human being that we all want to give the trust to.
    So if you want to give your money to someone who does not want to give it back to you when you need it, then vote for someone that uses big words and impresses those shallow minded idiots who think that education gives those smarts.
    People, who have gone to Harvard or Oxford, become very snooty and they only care about themselves. They love money and power, so yes I will vote for someone that can show me that they want to be serving their country and not themselves.

  • Shirin Murphy

    I studied in England and graduated high school at age 16; however this does not mean I am a genius. Stop being impressed by people who use big words, or earn big paychecks, those are the ones that only after you money. Las Vegas’ biggest earning is not from high rollers, but from the slot machines, the ones that small folks play.

  • L. Arm

    Obama never states to eliminate “private insurance”. He says “eliminate employer insurance” in a pre-election plan to reduce costs that have been reducing profits for small businesses, thus reducing wages and jobs.

  • Tim Hutson

    We are paying them to screw us, we need to stop paying!

    We should start a movement called “Just Don’t Pay!”

  • margaret kelly

    I can hardly believe what I just saw on ‘The View’ with the ‘speaker’ being Michelle Malkin. Joy Behar said that she read ‘some of her book’…then why is she slamming Michelle on other issues that AREN’T EVEN IN THE BOOK? Then the panelist. to the left of Michelle, admits that she HAS NEVER VOTED before the LAST ELECTION! If she had a problem with Bush’s handling of Katrina….where was her voice? I’m VERY DISAPPOINTED with the comments of Whoopee…who said she would ‘shut up’…but then continued to ‘step on’ valid remarks being made by Michelle. What kind of joke THIS SHOW HAS BECOME! I will never buy any products by ANY OF THE SPONSORS again!

    • cr747

      Ms. Kelly, you are so right. I wouldn’t walk across the road to see any of these people on the “VIEW”. What a waste of space on tv to air this program.

  • Marjorie

    Obama is the greatest threat modern day America faces. He is a Marist, a true socialist who is hell bent on bringing America to it’s knees. Look what he has already done in a few short months. He does help companies survive, he takes control of them. It has been said that many of the banks were coerced by his minnons to except his “help” or else they will cease to exist.

    Once we have the Health Care issue all handled and big kudos to all that fought the good fight. We need to go after the 44 czars. This is a major issue of bypassing congressional oversite in too many vital areas. I believe it is a blatant violation of our Constitution and it must be stopped.

    We need to go after and stop any Acorn involvement in any government process.

    One thing you can say about Obama is that he does repay his past cronies, just wish it wasn’t with my tax dollars.

  • cr747

    His first term and also his last term. Does these people think we are stupid? How ignorant these people are is beyond belief. I would trust my 2 year old Grandson before I could or would trust these people.

    I love it when people take excerpts of speeches and piece them together. They very often end up being taken out of context. McCain did that in his sleazy campaign ads during the election. I don’t believe in crap like this. I would need to hear the entire speech or see the entire interview to be swayed. This video is not proof of Obama’s desire to eliminate private health care. It is a lowball attempt to skew the public opinion with inaccurate and biased information.


    Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one’s self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all.”

    If we Americans would only support canidates that are commited only to upholding the US Constitution and forget this Dems/Repubs, Liberal/conservitive crap we would not be ruled by a government filled with the crime boss/mofia types that we have now.
