Maybe someone can explain to me how, exactly, conservatives are the aggressors in the culture war? In the conventional narrative of American politics, conservatives are obsessed with social issues. They want to impose their values on everyone else. They want the government involved in your bedroom. Those mean right-wingers want to make "health care choices" for women.

Now consider last week's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to consider two cases stemming from Obamacare: Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius and Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores. Democratic politicians and their fans on social media went ballistic almost instantly. That's hardly unusual these days. But what's revealing is that the talking points are all wrong.

Suddenly, the government is the hero for getting deeply involved in the reproductive choices of nearly every American, whether you want the government involved or not. The bad guy is now your boss who, according to an outraged Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., would be free to keep you from everything from HIV treatment to vaccinating your children if Hobby Lobby has its way. Murray and the White House insist that every business should be compelled by law to protect its employees' "right" to "contraception" that is "free."

     ALL leftists , liberals , progressives , socialists , communists and fascists are nothing more than destroyers of morality , decency ,  integrity , and all else that is good and honorable behavior just to set themselves up as the power brokers in the " new world order " .  They are at the very height of filthy scum .

LIBERALS are DESTROYING our Beloved United States Of America!!  They ALL LIE to get what they want!!

LIBERALS are evil DISGUSTING, DISRESPECTFUL, LIARS!!  

Winners Take RESPONSIBILITY

LOSER'S BLAME OTHERS!!

Conraception is totally free and very easy BUT the womwn will not use it for it means using their brains just a little with a little self discipline! which they should have learned about in hygiene and in biology plus the very many books free at the library or to purchase!
they are lazy, indifferenr, uncaring, grabbing other peoples' hard earned money while looking for the easiest mindless way just like this administration UNNECESSARY,

Progressives like Sen. Patty Murray underscore the fascist underpinnings of the liberal/progressive/socialist movement. How so?

Lest we confuse the stomp of jack boots of 1930's Germany's political system with modern fascism/socialism, here's a good definition of fascism from the Internet. Fascism is an economic model in which the state dictates the utilization of privately held assets to achieve public policy goals. Is this not what's been happening for about a hundred years, since about Pres. Wilson?



Aren't progressives using the government to force private institutions and businesses to carry out their welfare nanny state agenda? Hasn't our central, as opposed to intended federalist, government essentially taken over the automotive industry and financial institutions? Does it not control public secondary education and even much of higher education? Has it not taken over the college student loan business? Is it not trying to take over the health care industry with a single payer, the government, system?



Haven't liberal Democrats argued for nationalizing the petroleum, if not much of our energy production industries? Doesn't the government control almost all passenger rail transportation? Aren't they using the EPA, OSHA, and other agencies to control food production? Isn't the government trying to dictate not only wages but also health and retirement benefits of privately employed employees?



So, does anyone really believe we've a working Constitution with an intact Bill of Rights? Consider this, fascism is but one side of a coin with socialism on the other side. Fascism is just a step on the road to socialism, and perhaps even communism.

Where's Thomas Paine when we need him? Who can be the flag bearer on a national level to articulately state the essential need for a democratic Republic under the rule of constitutional law with a free market capitalist economy? Is it time to dust off the Declaration of Independence and take it to heart with a vengeance?

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
