I had the most endearing Facebook conversation today. Yeah, Facebook. It hurts me too.
Republican: Actually it wouldn't. How does telling people what doctors they can see when help people? How does making treatment decisions for people help them? How does cutting old people off from healthcare help people? How does insuring illegal immigrants (key work ILLEGAL) help citezens? How does limiting the amount of healthcare someone can receive every year help people?How about the measure in the bill saying that judicial review of it is not allowed. That's unconstitutional. Infact, the whole reason that that article is in there is because the regime knows that this whole measure is unconstitutional.Weren't we "promised" bi-partisianship during the campaign. He is so bi-partisan that he locked himself in a room with his liberal democrat buddies today to figure out how to squeeze this bill through. ... I'm the proudest American you know. I have been ready and willing to die for this country for years now. But if this socialist measure passes I might have to reevaluate my military plans because I'm not going to die for a communist nation.I'm all for healthcare for everyone. HOWEVER, it does not have to be the same for everyone. Just a word of friendly advice. If this goes through get yourself firearms, non perishable food, and hard currency (gold silver etc.) because when the healthcare system goes under what's left of the economy is going with it and chaos is going to ensue. U can start wiping your ass with American money now because it's going to be worthless pretty soon if they pass this.
Me: Illegal immigrants are not sadistic bloodsucking vipers. Just my liberal two cents.
Republican: Well no one said they were, and no one asked for your liberal 2 cents. Like I said above, the key word is illegal. Instead of spending money on turning this country socialist let's spend it on arresting the illegals and sending them back to where they come from. After that the poor Americans can take the jobs that the illegals hold and begin to make life better for themselves.
Oh. Okay. Nobody asked me. I guess I should just take my liberal two cents and shove it, right? Because that's the best way to solve all our problems. My favorite part was the post-apocalyptic description of the US after the bill passes. RATS IN THE STREETS AND THE LUNATICS YELLING AT THE MOON IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Might as well have said that. It would have been less hateful. Here's the thing - just like the gays don't want to rip apart your marriage, immigrants, be they illegal or not, do not want to stab you in the stomach and cut in front of you at the doctor's office. They just want to keep their children healthy. Sharing. Revolutionary. I have not read the health care bill. I don't pretend to know what I'm talking about here. I just know that what we have now isn't working, and there are people who like to live in their own little box worlds. Sometimes I like to ask them what they would do if they were an illegal immigrant. And then I sit there and let them scream at me because I clearly want to end America.
I can't take it anymore. But at least I can spell citizen.
