Good let them go out of business. A government run plan is what he has and is what I have had since I was 18 years old and first enlisted in the Navy.
Any plan that does not have a public option will be a win fall for the insurance industry and should be defeated and so should all the so called representatives of the people that vote against it, yet keep on the public dole.
Rep. Trent Franks, a Republican from Arizona…
"Obama's first act as president of any consequence, in the middle of a financial meltdown, was to send taxpayers' money overseas to pay for the killing of unborn children in other countries," said Frank. "Now, I got to tell you, if a president will do that, there's almost nothing that you should be surprised at after that. We shouldn't be shocked that he does all these other insane things. A president that has lost his way that badly, that has no ability to see the image of God in these little fellow human beings, if he can't do that right, then he has no place in any station of government and we need to realize that he is an enemy of humanity."
Franks later tries to "explain his position this way"
Bethany Haley, spokeswoman for Franks, said the congressman was referring to "unborn humanity" and should have clarified his statement. She also said that Franks meant to say that Obama's abortion-related policies have no place in government, rather than that Obama has no place in government.
"He was just referring to the way President Obama has set himself up as the most pro-abortion president in America's history," Haley said.

Which are you? More specifically which would you rather be, a Conservative or a Liberal? Here are the definitions from Dictionary.com:
Conservative: Disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc., or to restore traditional ones, and to limit change.
Liberal: Favorable to progress or reform, as in political or religious affairs. favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, esp. as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.
Using the definitions above lets examine the events of history and who might have been identified how.
How about the American Revolution. Was it Conservatives or Liberals that boarded the tea ships and tossed the tea overboard? Was it Conservatives or Liberals that signed the Declaration of Independence? Not everyone was in favor of American Independence and they were called Whigs. Were they Conservative or Liberals? Using the above definition I would call the Whigs the conservatives and the people who dumped the tea overboard Liberals.
The Civil War and the question of Slavery. Was it Liberals or Conservatives that advocated the abolition of slavery. Was it Liberals or Conservatives that established the Underground Railroad that offered escape to thousands of runaway slaves. Give the above definition it was most certainly liberals. Of course you might say it was an act of Liberalism for the Southern States to leave the Union.
A woman's right to vote. It was not until the early 20th Century that women obtained the right to vote. Was that a Liberal thing? I think it was as the Conservatives fought against it.
The Social Security Act and Medicare. Who fought for that and and fought against it? I think we all know.
The Equal Rights Amendment was definitely not the result of a Conservative movement. Just the opposite I would think. I don't think the John Birch Society nor the KKK was very liberal.
Over the past view years radio talk show hosts and others have turned the word Liberal into something bad. They even spit it out when they say it, you know they give it a little different connotation to the word in their speech. As usual Liberals have even backed off the use of the word when then describing themselves and now in a lot of cases use the word Progressive instead. Can you imagine a Conservative changing the word describing themselves because of the way Liberals refer to them. I think not.

Like Carter I was born and raised in the South. I left for many of my adult years but I am back now and except for the fact that the colored only drinking fountains and segregated eating establishments are gone, I see very little difference in the South I left and the South I now live in. Today most of the black people do not dine in the mostly white restaurants, they do not hang out in the local pubs. If they do, they will not be thrown out but they will not feel comfortable either. It's not said openly even among white people who don't know each other, but get into a group where they all are "good ole boys" and just listen. We all know it, they all know, even the media all knows it, they just won't say it. But Carter said it. By God, he is 85 years old, he gained the highest office in the land and you know what. He could give a crap what anyone says about him. So he just throws out what everyone else is afraid to say, and I agree with him.
