brief rant


Seriously, physically attacking Democrats over this? Hate calls, threats, cutting gas lines...vitriol like this? All because they want to give all Americans the ability to have health care? I'm sorry, I will NEVER understand your unwillingness to help everyone have a chance at health.

To John McCain: If you call us 'the American People' one more fucking time, I am going to go ballistic on your ass. All this crap about the ''American People' don't want this and 'the American people' are against it and so on....sorry, but I am NOT your American person and you do NOT speak for me. Besides which, 49% of Americans support this bill, while something like 40% are against. Do you see where the bigger percentage is?

From the way McCain talks, the 'American people' are a bunch of intolerant, selfish, reactionary yutzes who can't see a good thing when it stares them in the face and I don't want to be lumped in with them. I am not McCain's American People. Just call me Karla, an American. I'm glad someone is trying to fix some problems at home for once. I am still firmly in Obama's camp. He's doing the best he can with what he has got.

That being said, Democrats in the US...get off your butts and start being as vocal as the loud mouth GOP, will ya? Speak up! Show your support! And I don't mean just answering some lame petition on 'move on .org', I mean be as vocal as these idiot tea party people and stand up and be heard! Let them know you think health care for all is a GOOD THING! Blog! Twitter! Facebook! Get the word out that we are the 49%, and I bet that number will increase once people see the good that will come from this.

People here in Norway just shake their heads at the furor. Why on earth would people become so angry about something that is a good thing? What is wrong with a 'European system' as one Republican pundit so scornfully put it? It's not socialism, it's just good sense. (And if we want to talk about 'socialism', medicare/medicaid? We are already there, folks. Already there.)

America is disgracing itself in this. McCain and his 'American people'. Feh.
