This helps simplify things somewhat.  At least it's rational.

i just wonder how successful this could've been if Obama really called it the "War on Insurance"

The people would have loved it, briefly, until the trillions of dollars poured in from the insurance companies and Big Pharmaceutical and the media not so mysteriously did an about face and started embracing Hitler Girl's ideas.  And, because the media is controlled by a very small group of corporations, that's easy to do, and we'd be impeaching Obama within the year.

What kills me about Hitler Girl and her ilk is that they're absolutely indignant that Obama is spending money and getting government more involved in our lives, but they were perfectly willing to blindly support Bush as he funneled billions of dollars into 2 mismanaged wars.  I mean, okay, maybe spending is not the answer, but surely spending billions of dollars here at home is better than somewhere else.

That's "not in my backyard" syndrome at work.  Iraq, and the cost of that war, is far away from our thinking.  And since America has been at war, basically, since 1939, we no longer know what it's like to be at peace and have a peacetime economy. 

Not that we have a peacetime economy now, but massive social changes fall under that umbrella.  The only reason FDR got his way was because the world crashed into a brick wall.  That's what it took, and that's the last time we've experienced any sort of huge everybody-stand-together social reform.

I just wish you guys could have been at my house last night when I got lectured for supporting a partially nationalized health care system by a person who has never held a steady job, did not vote and does not have health insurance.

He actually said this to me: "I thought you were smarter than that."

I pretty much almost completely lost my shit.

Blind polarization at work again.  "I am a Republican.  I am supposed to hate this socialist health care business.  I therefore will!"  = Nazi girl.

it goes beyond being loud and disagreeable, though, when you start in with all this Nazi crap.  i don't even know the history, so let's get Uncle Nacho (who holds two BS's in History) to let us know if there's even a basic straw of evidence that the Nazis had socialized medicine.

They did, yes.  In fact, if you get the chance, find and read The Nazi War on Cancer.  Poorly written, but fascinating nonetheless.  Basically, if the Nazi's had won, we'd all be cancer free, walking on Mars, and taking mandatory two month vacations a year right now.  Also, the government would have given you your car.

Oh, and we'd be oil-free, too.  The Nazi synthetic oil cost 60 bucks a barrel in the 1930's... But would be slightly less now.  About 80-100 a barrel.  And we have the formula.  We'll be using it eventually.

However... Nazi girl doesn't understand that and this post isn't agreeing with her at all.  Obama's more like a right wing French president than anything else.
