We can't take four more years

To the Editor,

Watching what little I bothered of the Democratic convention, other than the Messiah standing onstage, absorbing the adulation of his mindless, deluded dupes, I gathered that they're watching San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, called a "rising star of the Democratic Party."

Of course he is; his name is "Castro." If his name were Marx, he'd already be DNC Chairman.

Another thing I noticed from the Democrat Dog-and-Pony show was that one phrase kept popping up: the great "accomplishment" of the president having "pushed Obamacare through Congress."

Well, yes, he did indeed, "push it through;" he bullied and bribed, in true Chicago fashion. He had to; both parties knew that somewhere between 60 and 70 percent of their constituents didn't want it. Yet, we got it.

Those numbers have remained relatively unchanged, since the 2010 election was payback.

Most people just don't trust the notion of government-run healthcare, and with good reason. They realize that government, regardless who's in charge, lacks common sense; that endless, monolithic bureaucracy is always a frustrating, moronic fiasco. They also know that socialized healthcare ultimately diminishes the quality and convenience of available care.

Healthcare here might not be the cheapest, but it's still the best in the world. Does it need work? Sure. Does it need government management? Not on your life.

Constitutionally, all the federal government is supposed to manage is infrastructure, national defense, coining currency and negotiating treaties. Anything else is usurpation of power.

All we have to do to see the end result of centralized bureaucracy maintaining a system of cradle-to-grave entitlements, is look to Europe.

Economies are imploding in real time, simply because the Ponzi scheme isn't working anymore. It worked as well as it did for decades, admittedly, but there just isn't enough money, anymore.

There it is, right there. They had riots, vandalism, violence, all because so many are addicted to entitlements; so used to having their governments pay their way, and didn't want the gravy train to end. And so many here still refuse to see it, and want it here, too.

We already have it here, really; socialist programs Medicare and Medicaid already hover near bankruptcy. Many doctors are refusing new Medicare/Medicaid patients, simply because they're not getting paid for their services.

Obama already took nearly $1 trillion from Medicare, palming it to Medicaid to make Obamacare appear feasibly solvent, and screwing the seniors. But hey, "sometimes grandma just has to take a pain pill."-B.O.

Calls for "austerity measures" in nations like Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal resulted in election wins for socialists, who obviously disdained those methods. You can't argue economics with socialists; they don't care if there's no money.

One of my favorite moments of the last four years was when we sent $20 billion of our dirty, greedy, capitalism-exploited money to help shore up the economies of saintly, compassionate, socialist Europe. Oh, the delicious irony.

Repeal Obamacare. Come November, repeal Obama; America can't take four more years.

Municipal to federal, vote as conservative as possible.
