    Only a leftist imbecile - but I repeat myself - could be dumb enough to think "hypocrite" means "someone who doesn't practice what I preach".

    Huh? So I guess the post you're freaking out about was this?
    I assumed the question was rhetorical. I don't really care what you call it. It's just not a civil liberty. But to answer your question, so you don't wet yourself, I guess I'd call it "guaranteeing a minimal standard of healthcare".

    That's clearly all you've been struggling to say. You don't care about others. You and yours. That's it. Again, no surprise.

    Editing someone's quote is strictly against board rules. I don't really care, but you should really calm down.

    Oh, chill. Obviously adding strikethrough is not an issue, derp. What did you imagine it was for? How do categorize Medicare if not a civil right or liberty?

    Okay then, let's call it a civil rights program implemented in 1965 to protect the elderly as a class from pointless impoverishment and societal abuse. A Medicare for All program would then protect all in general from being further plundered by the billionaires. Of course, as with Social Security and Medicare, the billionaires themselves would be protected, thus leaving nothing for them to cry about. The reason these programs work is because they save "the people" (i.e. the govt) a ton of money in the long run since the billionaires, left to their own devices, always end up stealing significantly from govt revenue.

    Yup, just like he's in charge of the military, building the roads, and all the other things you have with civilization.

    Frankly, that it took 240 years to get to a crazy person is kind of amazing in and of itself, but the system functions pretty well even with a crazy person in charge.

    Now go away, little boy, the grownups are talking.

    Not everything. Only the things authorized by the Constitution. See, unlike you, the founders didn't want government running every goddamned thing.

    Yes, yes. Posturing is all you got. Go with that.

    My civil rights depend on the government taking 2.9% of my paycheck? LOL!
