"Scott Brown said he expects to be seated quickly in the U.S. Senate, but he was conciliatory on the question of what he will do there, noting that he voted for universal health insurance coverage in Massachusetts and wanted his election to encourage a new bipartisanship in Washington." [emphasis mine]
And this gem here:
"We're past campaign mode: I think it's important for everyone to get some form of health care," Brown told a news conference Wednesday morning. "So to offer a basic plan for everybody I think is important. It's just a question of whether we're going to raise taxes, we're going to cut a half at trillion from Medicare, we're going to affect veterans' care. I think we can do it better." [emphasis mine]
So here we have your typical socialist believing that every American DESERVES health coverage and that his version of socialism is "better."
Explain to me again what the difference between Republicans and Democrats are? Explain to me why voting for the "lesser of two evils" is any better than voting your conscience? As far as I can tell, we did get the lesser of two evils -- we got the one who believes he can coerce you "better."
Of course I'm preaching to the choir, but I think it is important to bring articles like this to light. I know how difficult it can be to be a Libertarian when everyone around you is encouraging evil and telling you your guy or gal cannot win. Do me a favor and bring this article up. Add this to your bag of tricks and don't let a socialist tell you that you favor a lost cause. Because the reality is simply this: supporting evil is ALWAYS a lost cause. You get what you deserve every single time.
