The Democrats

I haven't really paid a lot of attention to the Democrats debates because I don't believe socialism is a good formula for America. Hillary as much as quoted Karl Marx in a speech, or maybe it was in a debate, when she stated that her her health plan would be paid for on the basis of an individual's abilty to pay. That is pretty c;ose to Marx's "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs".

I am curious as to whom will determine my needs. Will it be Hillary or some buracracy of clerks with high school educations evaluating my abilities and needs. I prefer determining those things for myself.

I did watch last night's debate all the way through and my opinions about both candidates being socialists were reinforced. Both of them want to turn us upside down and dump the cash from our pockets so they can redistribute our money according to someone else's needs. I suppose their next move will be to nationalize agriculture, medicine and business.

What really struck me most about the debate was the impact it had on Hillary. She started out aggressive and comative and as the debate went forward you could actually see the color draining from her face. Toward the end she looked drawn, pallid and beaten. Hillary knows she is beaten. In my opinion, by the end of next week she will withdraw from the race.

When she does withdraw, it will not be gracious and I think any support she MIGHT give Obama will be extremely weak. Hillary is a very vindictive person and even if she does say she supports Obama, she will stick a knife in his back at every opportunity.

I am glad to see all of this playing out the way it is because I think it will help Republicans and will put McCain in the White House. In my opinion, the Democrats are about to implode and Obama is the fuse.

Now that you mention it, Chuck, folks are saying that THIS recent ad from Mrs. Clinton is perhaps a secret gift to John McCain -- since it is HE who is most-qualified among the remaining field to answer that 3:00 AM call.

Boy was I wrong about Hillary dropping out. Like the proverbial cat, she must have 9 lives. Hopefully she is on number 8.

I will be posting again. I have been involved up to my eyeballs in community politics. I am on the Board of Directors of the property Owners Association where I live and the demands on my time are huge.

I've been checking your site out daily and enjoy your posts. Yours are almost as sporadic as mine.

I've tried to comment on a couple of your posts but that squiggley letter thing blocked them.
