    Well, somebody finally got the train wreck right.

    Luckily the Affordable Care Act is alive and doing very well, thank you.

    Yeah, the polling on Obamacare vs the ACA is eyeopening.

    Obamacare IS a trainwreck. That’s why the MSM has stopped reporting on it…

    So some of you are saying that the ACA is a failure because nobody wants it, and others are saying that it’s a failure because too many people are trying to sign up for it and overloading the servers.
    Do you guys want a few minutes to huddle up and compare notes?

    “Obamacare will destroy this nation, and we are willing to destroy this nation to prevent that from happening!”

    Nice characterization. Now let’s get serious: do you know ONE LIBERAL who feels this way? I do not. Most liberals I know feel that we should stop spending money we don’t have. They just feel that spending as much as we possibly can on the military, to the exclusion of everything else, is the wrong approach.

    You might want to try communicating with a real person. Or you could continue to convince yourself that all liberals feel the exact same way as you pictured above; sometimes fantasy is more comfortable than reality.

    @I Play One On TV

    Yes I do, but I don’t argue with them. I prefer thoughtful, constructive debate. And yes, I did exaggerating some. I realize too many people watch too many shouting matches on TV and name calling (where both sides are wrong). My own lawyer is a self-proclaimed liberal who loves to rant that way, yet he is a good enough lawyer to keep. We need civility and good ideas. I can’t stand the division, even though I understand the differences in ideology. You cannot deny that the media has given the Tea Party a bum rap with no proof. I’ll throw it back at you. Do you talk to any people who are self-proclaimed tea partiers (which by the way is not an organization or a party)? Are they racists? Are they terrorists? Why are they hated? I’m a farmer who loves America and ALL Americans. We need to start finding common ground.

    Democrats are willing to pay their fair share. It’s Republicans who refuse to consider taxing hedge fund managers and G.E. (who get huge tax refunds every year). It’s the fear of having to talk about revenue that has made the GOP block negotiations on the budget for six months, until they could threaten a hostage.

    @Davit_O

    Thanks for your reasoned reply. I agree: you cannot characterize Tea Party participants any more than any other group. To do so takes one from reality to some artificial world, where the ones who believe differently are wrong, so much so that we assign them characteristics which probably don’t come even close. And therein lies the danger. It’s easier to hate a group than a member of the group.

    I agree that it is past time to start finding common ground. An us-vs.-them society is far less likely to survive than one whose members will respect all viewpoints and consider them in context. Unfortunately, the divide-and-conquer paradigm has been found to deliver votes, and helps to keep us unwashed masses fighting with each other, as opposed to holding our “representatives” accountable. Best of luck to us all.

    Does the right ever stop lying. The roof falls down you their heads and they say, “did not”. A 24% approval rating and they’re about to crash the world economy. We going to need to rise up and literally toss them out of Washington or lay down and die because the refuse to admit the new Health Care is working.

    The TEA party has given itself a well-deserved bad rap. It didn’t actually start out that way in the first few weeks of folks who “joined up”, but quickly went south, and sour. The lunatic fringe took over the movement from the few who did have “good intent”

    @dtroutma

    Can you cite these lunatics? Please read: I Play One On TV’s comments above. He speaks reasonably. You, on the other hand may be buying into a narrative that has no basis. Opinion may think Tea Party people are fringe, but their actions do not convince me. There is not one piece of evidence of violence or racism. If you know on some factual events (not opinion) that shows different, please share. If there is one or more, it is more than likely very isolated. A better course is for you (and the rest of us Americans) to read what they believe, why they believe it and find what you can agree with first, then debate the differences with the intension of coming to a viable solution. I’d be happy to do that with you. Our country is too awesome to do otherwise.

    Good point (in part).
    .
    We Americans should lead the way and not follow our elected (and sometimes corrupted) officials.
    .
    Begin with debt. Before we scream for Washington to correct the debt crisis let’s correct our own. Consumer debt passed 3 Trillion and Household debt is at 13 trillion.
    .
    It took me quite a few years but I am finally debt free. Even though I have very little money, I owe no one anything. My farm is paid off as are my cars and equipment. It is a great feeling. I will never borrow again.

    If we all did this, we would be more unified and equipped to effect change.

    You are right I should probably remove it. Had you been in the room with me, you would of understood it was more of an allegory of the crazy dialogue that is out there. I’m as much effected by it as we all are. Yet it led to my further point of we need to speak with more civility. My intention was not to offend, but point out the ridiculous name calling we have witnessed. Our country is without strong leadership. We have to be strongly united with each other.
