Lunacy

Markadelphia, a fairly well-known liberal commenter over at The Smallest Minority, wrote up a fairly long-winded post on his blog singing the praises of Obama's health care propsals. It's a sum-up of the same leftist/class envy twaddle I've been hearing my whole life and I'm getting sick of it. I left a comment that I thought I'd share:

No deficit spending. The cost of health care reform under the legislation is fully paid for:

Have you seen the economy lately? We're ALREADY deficit spending.

half through making the Medicare and Medicaid program more efficient by eliminating waste

I have NEVER IN MY LIFE seen a government program eliminate waste. Every program I'm aware of GROWS in costs, most way beyond their original estimates. Why should this one be any different?

and half through a surtax on the income of the wealthiest individuals aka the top one percent

Ah yes, those rich bastards need to pay their fair share! Because they don't pay enough right now. It saddens me that you don't even see the immorality in this at all, Mark. It horrifies me that half the country agrees with you. "From each according to his ability to each according to his need". Honestly, you'd think we'd fucking LEARNED from the last century of history, but the left in this country thinks they've got it all figured out. This shining city on a hill has gotten noticeably dimmer over the last few months. God help humanity when you people finally extinguish it.

I'm sorry, but I love this country dearly and I hate to see it go the way of Europe.
The definition of insanity is repeating the same action over and over, expecting a different result. The left REFUSES to accept the realities of the last hundred years of human history, and they're going to make the whole damn country pay for their ignorance.
Once socialism gets a strong foothold here, it's all over. Everywhere. What sort of future are my children going to inherit?
