The GOP has promised there are absolutes and based on these we should all be voting Republican. One of the biggest promises/absolutes is "government provided health care reform will mean rationing, poor care, lack of innovation, mass doctor shortages, communism, Nazism, national debt forever, Mexicans getting care, and now...DEATH PANELS TO KILL YOUR GRANDMA!" This is why we should be voting GOP!
What if their biggest lie, for decades, gets tossed out as just that A LIE? What happens when these fools lose their biggest bogey man? A Clue: what happened when GOP love for the war got confronted with cooked intelligence, lies, no shock and awe, failure, no WMD's, etc.?....we won mid-term elections, then the house, senate and White House. What do you think GOP's world would look like if health care reform came and was wildly successful? Ouch? They would be left with a platform about tax breaks for rich people, immigration, and abortion. Or 12% of the vote.
The Republican Party is not against health care reform. Rather, they are scared shitless. What is going to happen when reform comes and everyone has good health care, we all have access to the doctors we want, there is no rationing, our grandmas are all alive with their tubes and wires still plugged in, and the country/world has not ended in a mushroom cloud of financial disaster? I'll tell you what is going to happen....a corner stone of republican bull shit will be flushed down the proverbial toilet. This is not Obama's Waterloo my friends, this is the Republican Party's Waterloo. If people find out they have been lied to, and they were denied good affordable health care just to keep the GOP relevant, these Tea Baggers are going to look like a knitting group compared to the rioting duped GOP faithfuls.
Almost like the guy who gets us all to believe the world is ending on Friday. When Monday rolls around, and we had the weekend to think about his bullshit, Mr End of The World goes from relevant to invisible.
GOP, Rush, Palin, Steele, etc. are fighting for their lives, not about health care. This is why they have doubled down with crazy goofy stuff. The sooner we realize it the sooner we will disengage in this dumb ass notion of "bipartisanship" and deliver a true health care reform bill. Otherwise we are fighting, and losing, about issues which were never really the "true issues." This is why we are now spinning in circles around Death Panels, Illegals Getting Health Care, Grandma Getting Killed, Nazis, etc. - all arguments which can never be won. They are mindless distractions designed to defeat us. The GOP doesn't want to really talk about health care, they want to stay alive by simply keeping their best bogey man.
Ignoring the GOP mashugana will get us two things. Good Nationalized Health Care and GOP becoming irrelevant. I just wish Dems, Obama, pro reform, etc. would stop arguing with this straw man, ignore these babbling idiots, and get us a meaningful successful reform bill.
