......Can I blame the liberals for it? After all, it is a socialist idea. Can
anyone get food simply by putting their feet on a supermarkets property? If
so, then would you go for the idea today that food should be socialized? How
about getting a room for the night by simply setting foot on a hotel's
property?

Republicans would rather get jerked around by the corporations than by
the government. Wait until you get a horrible diseaase and your health
insurance company drops you like a hot potato.

The fact is that this nation is now an oligarchy (and has been for
some time) and not a democracy.

How does that go, from the corporations, by the corporations, and for
the corporations?

That is what litigation is supposed to correct.....You still have the right
to sue. But I never said that government couldn't regulate. Your health
insurance policy should list the stuff it doesn't cover, in large ten point
type.......I would vote for a law like that.

No. He assumed that everyone who rode through Sherwood Forest on a fine
horse, dressed in nice clothing was a thief who got his finery by stealing
from the poor, and he stole it back and gave it to the poor. But he had no
proof of this, just as the liberals have no proof that everyone who is rich
got their riches by stealing, either. Some (most) of them actually worked
harder and more brilliantly in order to achieve wealth, and deserve to have
it and enjoy it. This is the lie of the Robin Hood story, and I saw it
early on, and detested it even then.

I do not believe it would be possible for a true conservative to be elected
president today. Certainly Bush didn't qualify as one.
