The vast majority of white evangelical Christians are ardent supporters of Israel.

Racial hatred has always been a powerful weapon wielded by the dems. Nothing has changed, except the appearance of their racist demagogues.

Ok today on Drudge is DeBlasio thanking Sharpton for his "work" on "climate change"

Recently we saw the director of Health and Human Services praising him

Now I get it.   It all comes to full circle in my mind now.  Now I see in general where Sharpton gets his power.

He must be funded from wealthy progressive leftist elite.   The deal is he can have is MSLSD platform to do his racial rants, promote himself and make fortunes in return for preaching all this leftist stuff.

He only needs a few powerful media moguls and agenda driven journilisters to keep up front and center.  As long he mouths their propaganda he is in the circle of the elites of the Obama army and Democrat machine and mainstream media and even the university types who are the central planners.   the intelligentsia has gone power hungry in our country.

Perhaps this is why in history some have fought these university types - the intelligentsia ( I digress though).

We could let the free market actually determine prices and let free individual determine what kind of health care they wanted to obtain, and insurance companies could compete for business.   shocked

"Doug's prediction looking better everyday"

Well she is clearly not the BS mouthpiece Bubba is yet I still say never underestimate the depravity of the Clinton machine.
The entire left will rally behind her and be quite happy to fill in for her personal and policy deficits with fanciful story lines galore.


So far no Republican clearly has what it takes at this time (IMHO).   I liked some of Bush's rant on Drudge but his take on illegals which is essentially to pardon 15 or 20 million of them and thus more will come till be have 75 million in the US (California whose population has exploded was reported to be well over 50% Latin - not all illegal of course but a substantial portion yes) does not sit well with me.  I don't care if the illegal is from Israel.  Go back to your country and apply through legal channels.

He has clearly done a mea culpa and seems to think we can win their hearts and minds over while the left stuffs stolen money into their pockets.   Good luck with that.

While I rather agree with Jindal's religious morality ideals I don't think that would be a big seller outside the Christian right.

Sure I like Rubio but I am not sure if he has already peaked.   Not sure.

Paul is out for me.  He is just not appealing.   Too analytical.

Walker I don't know if he has the charisma.

Romney we know has no charisma.

Christi's policies are suspect and I just don't really like him personally.

We will see.

This is from a progressive site, but the point is dead on:   The Reps are years past where they should have a list of bullet points to answer the question presented here:

http://www.ifyouonlynews.com/politics/boehner-mcconnell-humiliated-when-asked-about-gop-obamacare-alternatives-they-still-got-nothin-video/

Republicans have alternative plans, but they don't have a consensus on one - or leadership.  They can't do anything until 2017, but they can't do anything then, either, if they don't get clear and persuasive and win the argument about where we need to be heading.

Republicans need to reassure conservatives that they really will repeal Obamacare if given the chance and reassure the public at large that they will replace it in a way that does not leave millions of beneficiaries bereft. They could accomplish both of these tasks at once if they devised a conservative health-care plan that replaces Obamacare without threatening people’s coverage. Then they could commit themselves to that plan without making swing voters anxious, and thereby begin showing conservatives that they have a real plan to get rid of the law.

This course of action does not amount to searching for a unicorn. Several plans that meet these criteria have been put forward, such as the CARE Act, proposed by Senators Orrin Hatch, Richard Burr, and Tom Coburn, and a plan put forth by the 2017 Project, a conservative nonprofit (links above). The key step would be to change the tax treatment of health insurance. We now have a tax break for employer-provided health insurance, including fairly expensive employer-provided insurance. That break should be flattened — so that it no longer rewards people for choosing the most expensive insurance options, and so that people who do not have access to employer-provided plans can use an equivalent tax break to buy insurance on the individual market.

A replacement plan should also make existing entitlement programs more market-friendly. Most of Medicaid should be converted into subsidies that help beneficiaries buy into this enlarged individual market. Ideally, Medicare, too, would be converted into a system in which private plans compete for the business of empowered consumers, as almost all Republicans have already endorsed.

Plans along these lines have been estimated to be competitive with Obamacare on the number of people insured, and superior to it in cost and choice of doctors. A higher proportion of the insured would have protection from large medical expenses, and coverage would generally be of higher quality than Medicaid (which is responsible for most of Obamacare’s expansion of coverage). The resulting system would feature lower premiums and taxes than Obamacare. It would lack the law’s centralizing Medicare board and essential-benefits package, its employer mandate, and its individual mandate. It could be structured to avoid discouraging work, as Obamacare’s subsidies do.
