“In Canada it is working very well. I have said this before and will say it again-- Does your right to bear assault rifles trump the rights of a six year old to go to school and not be shot in class?
Norman Rockwell did an amazing set of illustrations years ago of the freedoms enjoyed by Americans. These freedoms included the Freedom from Fear. Sadly, that freedom is gone today in America.”

“Should we apply your logic to automobiles? Or do libs differentiate how we go about killing children?
At some point you need to come to grips with the fact that a mentally ill criminal killed those children. Not an extended magazine or a scary looking rifle.”

“Recognized for his stupidity is more like it. He should have known better than to vote on the issue. Now would be a good time to admit to an "error in judgement" but Ford can't and won't do anything but blame somebody else.
And apparently there is no issue that Doug Ford won't make stupid comments about. Does he not get that he makes things worse every single time that he opens his mouth?”

“How I long for the day when I will never have to see a photo of Harper again! His dead eyes and lipless grimace scare the heck out of me! That, and the clear knowledge that he won't rest until he has destroyed Canada as we know it.”
“What does that even mean? Are we to be punished for not embracing the Republican "You have no right to anything, I am not nearly rich enough yet" party line?”

“There is room for anyone who works hard and has a little timing luck to get rich. America is the land of opportunity for individuals. The size of government makes it more difficult to get started down that path because regulation and taxes multiply. The ideology of the Obama administration is to pick winners and losers such as took place in the five year plans of societies now gone. When you become dependent in the government narcotic, there is no easy way out. It ends badly.”
“Absolutely, and that's why Canada and all of Europe have had free Health Care for decades!! Really, America, ten years from now you will wonder what the fuss was about, and why it took so long to get Health Care for yourselves.”

“Small countries like our states can implement such things from the beginning. However, they do not work when a system is already in place and working.
While it could work, implementing such a policy while the entire country owes 16 trillion dollars and in the hole and at the same time so many out of work is really stupid and will shut down millions upon millions of jobs and keep millions of other jobs from forming.
When American's, those who do work, start paying 50% of their pay for other peoples healthcare, then we will be headed the way of Greece. Actually, the 1% of our society already pay most of the taxes already. But I guess that is not enough.
What we really need is to build up the economy first. That is why Romney would have been a Great President.
But, this President does not want that. He wants the people to be dependant on Government handouts. This way, the Democrats will remain in power.
Who else is there going to be to vote for if you rely on Government checks to keep you in Frito and lays potato chips, without a job and the ability to let the TV wash over you 24 hours a day?
Personally, I work for a living. But the US of A is being transformed.
Welcome to Socialism where such things cannot be sustained.”
