Living in the Trough

 

If you look at the above graph, it shows presidential approval ratings. As you can see, with the exceptions of Bill Clinton and Gerald Ford, Barack Obama is the least popular president of the last twelve at this point in his presidency. His programs are not popular. They're not popular because they are invasive and doomed to fail, as socialism historically always has. Americans relish freedom and success, even if the media tries oh so hard to whitewash socialism. All the whitewash in the world can't erase the fact that Obama's intentions have a 100% failure rate across history.

In a recent comment thread, Bella suggested that Obamacare is merely the introduction of "a gov't competitor into the system." The problem is that Bella hasn't read page 16 of the House bill:

"Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day [of the year the bill becomes law]."
Investor's Business Daily saw this, and said, "So we can all keep our coverage, just as promised - with, of course, exceptions: Those who currently have private individual coverage won't be able to change it. Nor will those who leave a company to work for themselves be free to buy individual plans from private carriers."

A government competitor? Only if you never change jobs.

Yep. That's what you voted for, Obama voters. A guy who nationalizes car companies, banks, and soon - unless we stand strong against it - health care.

Me, I refuse to live in North Cuba. And I refuse to stand by and idly watch my kids' futures get mugged.
