There are 2 major political parties in America. Im a member of the naïve, stupid, and cowardly one. Im a Republican. How stupid is the GOP? They still dont get it. I told them 5 years ago, 2 books ago, a national bestseller ago (The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide), and in hundreds of articles and commentaries, that Obamacare was never meant to help America, or heal the sick, or lower healthcare costs, or lower the debt, or expand the economy.
The GOP needs to stop calling Obamacare a trainwreck. That means its a mistake, or accident. That means its a gigantic flop, or failure. Its NOT. This is a brilliant, cynical, and purposeful attempt to damage the U.S. economy, kill jobs, and bring down capitalism. Its not a failure, its Obamas grand success. Its not a trainwreck, Obamacare is a suicide attack. He wants to hurt us, to bring us to our knees, to capitulate- so we agree under duress to accept big government.
Obamas hero and mentor was Saul Alinsky- a radical Marxist intent on destroying capitalism. Alinkskys stated advice was to call the other guy a terrorist to hide your own intensions. To scream that the other guy is ruining America, while you are the one actually plotting the destruction of America. To claim again and again in every sentence of every speech that you are saving the middle class, while you are busy wiping out the middle class.
The GOP is so stupid they cant see it. There are no mistakes here. This is a planned purposeful attack. The tell-tale sign isnt the disastrous start to Obamacare. Or the devastating effect the new taxes are having on the economy. Or the death of full-time jobs. Or the overwhelming debt. Or the dramatic increases in health insurance rates. Or the 70% of doctors now thinking of retiring- bringing on a healthcare crisis of unimaginable proportions. Forget all that.
The real sign that this is a purposeful attack upon capitalism is how many Obama administration members and Democratic Congressmen are openly calling Tea Party Republicans and anyone who wants to stop Obamacare terrorists. Theres the clue. Even the clueless GOP should be able to see that. They are calling the reasonable people the patriots the people who believe in the Constitution the people who believe exactly what the Founding Fathers believed the people who want to take power away from corrupt politicians who have put America $17 trillion in debt terrorists?
Thats because they are Saul Alinsky-ing the GOP. The people trying to purposely hurt America, capitalism and the middle class are calling the patriots by a terrible name to fool, confuse and distract the public.
Obamacare is a raving, rollicking, fantastic success. Stop calling it a failure. Here is what it was created to do. It is succeeding on all counts.
#1) Obamacare was intended to bring about the Marxist dream- redistribution of wealth. Rich people, small business owners, and the middle class are being robbed, so that the money can be redistributed to poor people (who vote Democrat). Think about it. If youre rich or middle class, you now have to pay for your own healthcare costs (at much higher rates) AND 40 million other peoples costs too (through massive tax increases). So youre stuck paying for both bills. You are left broke. Brilliant.
#2) Obamacare was intended to wipe out the middle class and make them dependent on government. Think about it. Even Obamas IRS predicts that health insurance for a typical American family by 2016 will be $20,000 per year. But how would middle class Americans pay that bill and have anything left for food or housing or living? People that make $40K, or $50K, or $60K cant possibly hope to spend $20K on health insurance without becoming homeless. Bingo. Thats how you make middle class people dependent on government. Thats how you make everyone addicted to government checks. Brilliant.
#3) As a bonus, Obamacare is intended to kill every decent paying job in the economy, creating only crummy, crappy part-time jobs. Why? Just to make sure the middle class is trapped, with no way out. Just to make sure no one has the $20,000 per year to pay for health insurance, thereby guaranteeing they become wards of the state. Brilliant.
#4) Obamacare is intended to bankrupt small business, and therefore starve donations to the GOP. Think about it. Do you know a small business owner? I know hundreds of them. Their rates are being doubled, tripled and quadrupled by Obamacare. Guess who writes 75% of the checks to Republican candidates and conservative causes? Small business. Even if a small business owner manages to survive, he or she certainly cant write a big check to the GOP anymore. Money is the mothers milk of politics. Without donations, a political party ceases to exist. Bingo. Thats the point of Obamacare. Obama is bankrupting his political opposition and drying up donations to the GOP. Brilliant.
#5) Obamacare is intended to make the IRS all-powerful. It adds thousands of new IRS agents. It puts the IRS in charge of overseeing 15% of the U.S. economy. The IRS has the right because of Obamacare to snoop into every aspect of your life, to go into your bank accounts, to fine you, to frighten you, to intimidate you. And Obama and his socialist cabal have access to your deepest medical secrets. By law your doctor has to ask your sexual history. That information is now in the hands of Obama and the IRS to blackmail GOP candidates into either not running, or supporting bigger government, or leaking the info and ruining your campaign. Or have you forgotten the IRS harassed, intimidated and persecuted critics of Obama and conservative groups? Now Obama hands the IRS even more power. Big Brother rules our lives. Brilliant.
#6) Obamacare is intended to unionize 15 million healthcare workers. That produces $15 billion in new union dues. That money goes to fund Democratic candidates and socialist causes- thereby guaranteeing Obamas friends never lose another election, and Obamas policies keep ruining capitalism and bankrupting business owners long after hes out of office.
Message to the GOP: This isnt a game. This isnt tiddly-winks. This is a serious, purposeful attempt to highjack America and destroy capitalism. This isnt a trainwreck. Its purposeful suicide. Its not failing, its working exactly according to plan. Obama knows what hes doing. Stop apologizing and start fighting.
Oh and one more thing
Conservatives arent terrorists. We are patriots and saviors. We represent the Constitution and the Founding Fathers. We are the heroes and good guys. Unless you get all this through your thick skulls, America is lost
Sad.....But true.....We R Screwed
Successful? I don’t think so.
Wayne Allyn Root, you lose me right there.
You were the Libertarian Party Vice Presidential candidate in 2008.
Success is restoring us to our pre-socialist state, refuting the very ROOT of Obamacare, that the government is somehow obligated or even entitled to provide healthcare.
It's incrementalism -- two steps forward and one step back. Then another two steps and you're where you wanted to be to begin with. It just took a little longer to get there.
To paraphrase PJ O'Rourke, Democrats sell you socialism by the bottle; Republicans sell it by the drink.
>> Its not a trainwreck, Obamacare is a suicide attack. He wants to hurt us, to bring us to our knees, to capitulate- so we agree under duress to accept big government.
Yep, and the damage is irreparable at this point. It will up to a future generation who was born into communist poverty to rise up and restore freedom.
The GOPe isn't that stupid and they can see it. Yes, this is a planned purposeful attack and the GOPe is a willing collaborator. Traitors all...............
Actually there was a national healthcare system. Medicare has been in place since ‘65 and we’re all paying into it.
THEY SLEEP TOGETHER THEY BREAK BREAD TOGETHER THE GOLF TOGETHER AND THEY SCHEME AND SCAM TOGETHER, PARTNERS IN CRIME
For the first time in my adult life, I am ashamed of my country.
Columns like this one need to get into the major media and they never do. The Left’s iron lock on the MSM is worth a fortune and legions of campaign workers.
Yes he was.
He should have been the GOP Presidential nominee. He ran. The fact Mr. Root wasn’t nominated and McCain was points to the cowardice, stupidity and naïveté of the GOP’s progressive/statist leadership, as well as reflecting quite poorly on the primary voters’ motivations.
The greatest dangers to the USA are not crossing the southern border, not a rising China, and not 50 generation inbred moon god worshippers; but thrive within our national and state capitols, nourish themselves in our media and unaccountable bureaucracies, enforce themselves behind badges “for public safety”, and are germinated within us at taxpayer expense in the public schools.
We now have 110 million people employed in private enterprise, and 88 million people on the dole or some sort of government employee.
There isn’t even a mention of going back to zero based budgeting at the federal level, while crap like Ryan/Murray passes with flying colors.
Lots of gas bagging about balancing the budget, but don’t touch Social Security, Medicare part D, Federal pensions, military retirement, military bases, government employees, welfare, SNAP, section 8, heating assistance, etc. Hardly anyone wants to face the facts that WE CANT AFFORD ANY OF THIS CRAP.
Please fellow freepers, stop looking for courage and wisdom to spring forth from the collective cowardice, avarice and ignorance of the American voters. Things are unlikely to change until we hit the wall, and things may get even worse afterwards.
It’s a Holocaust, IMO.

Of course, this was exactly what Mao, Stalin, Castro, the NK leaders, and so on did. Unfortunately, not a single one of them actually figured out the “rebuilding” part after doing the destroying.
It’s not just the GOP-e that is fraudulent; it’s the uninformed GOP primary voters.
With Obamacare, Obama has given the nation the ultimate knock-out punch!
