    This post is for Conservatives, discerning, independents, & other thinking people regardless of political affiliation.   The Democratic Party has turned America into a nanny state w/an intrusive government in terms of social programs & government health care.  The Democratic Party believes that government should be the ultimate answer for social problems.  There are some in the Democratic Party who feel that the party has not gone far enough to address so-called social inequity.   Is it the goal of the Democratic Party or the DEMONcratic Party to turn America into one big WELFARE & NANNY state?  When is enough ENOUGH?

      I am excited about the prospect of getting Republicans out of Senate control and the White House in 2020 and am working diligently toward that goal in every way possible.

        You and me both. Our local Democratic party is even making inroads in my heavily right-wing rural county, thanks to Donnie's ineptitude and corruption.

          Yeah, let the Democratic Party a/k/a Socialist Party further put America in.......DISREPAIR...........okay............(being sarcastic, rolling eyes).   We need the Republicans to set off the excesses, stupidity, & immaturity of the current Democrats in the Senate & White House.  The Republicans seem to be more logical than the Democrats at THIS POINT!

            Logic is in the eye of the beholder, isn't it?

            That Obamacare you so despise was a compromise from Democratic ideals to appease the Republicans who couldn't abide the demise of blood-sucking insurance companies. More Americans now support Medicare for All. It will happen and the world will not come to an end just like it didn't  when Social Security was enacted. Remember death panels? Yrah, that was logical, wasn't it? roll

              Let us demolish Obamacare.  Make healthcare the responsibility of the individual.  Let the individual pay for his/her healthcare, not have the government MANDATE healthcare.  The government is here to enforce laws, not pay for healthcare & other social amenities.  Health care isn't a right, like housing.  If one wants something, pay for it himself/herself.  That is my thinking.  The world doesn't owe one anything.

              I would like to add that if people were more responsible for their finances, we wouldn't need social security.   In my view, the less government, THE BETTER!   People ought to learn to LOOK OUT & TAKE CARE of themselves.  Liberals have created a parasitic, entitled American society! Oh my God, I am a LIBERAL & am seeing through the Liberal malaise!

              I definitely don't support Medicare for all.  Let people pay their own health insurance & health needs.   The government isn't responsible.   Individuals need to be accountable & responsible for themselves- THAT'S THE PROBLEM!  TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES, PEOPLE!   Grown people shouldn't be taken care of, except themselves.    Now America unfortunately has become a gimme, rescue me, & entitled society!  This has GOT TO STOP!    I PAY ENOUGH TAXES ALREADY!   Liberals are KILLING the middle class by these INANE SOCIAL & HEALTH programs.  Reduce or eliminate such programs & America would be MUCH BETTER OFF!

                If you're a liberal, I'm a Nazi.

                Your drama is becoming amusing. Just like death panels, your gloom and doom predictions are a right-wing delusion.

                Remember when gay marriage would be the downfall of our culture? Another dire prediction that didn't happen.

                Some day we'll all use unisex bathrooms, too. Oh, the horror! Lol

                  I am a Liberal.  I am just not an EXTREME one.  Yes, I believe in pro-choice, same sex marriage, women's rights, etc. Have believed in these things since high school!  I differ from you in that I believe that people should pay their own way.  I don't believe in an INTRUSIVE government.  The government has no business being in health care- that is UP TO THE INDIVIDUAL.  It is the individual's responsibility to pay for his/her healthcare.  It is also up to the individual to foot his/her housing, college, & retirement, not the government.   I believe in LESS government & people DOING FOR SELVES.  Oh yes, I am a staunch liberal, not the radical left liberal of today!

                    No, Grace, from the vast majority of postings, you are anything but liberal.

                    So, I guess that makes both me and Panther wide eyed radical liberal extremists?

                    You are a social liberal and an economic conservative, sounds like to me.

                    I am tired of being characterized as promoting a nanny state just because I believe it benefits everyone for a society as wealthy as ours to ensure that poor people don't die or suffer ill health just because they can't afford comprehensive health care.

          As always, Panther, your talons are as sharp as ever.

          I read an interesting articles about conservatives being 'frightened' of cities and what their diverse residents represent. The problem is that this trend  continues even in major metropolitan areas away from either coastline and well into the heartland. For example, the blue flu is catching and will overcome Texas within a handful of years....

        So that the current Democrats can further BANKRUPT America by implementing MORE INANE social & health policies like the good ole disaster, Obama"care"?  C'mon be reasonable, Cred!

          No, quite the opposite, I am reasonable and I don't trust Republicans to do anything but enrich the few at the expense of the many. In the face of that, I will take my chances with the Democrats.

      When compared to the "old Democratic party," it is obvious there is no party. Just a bunch of want to be's bumping into each other. They have no real agenda to offer Americans.  The Republicans that hold office don't look much better. Guess that's why Trump won. Something new seemed appealing.
