To the angry right...

I am tired of the bullshit...

Do you support the schmucks who are throwing bricks through their representatives windows?
Are you in favor of the jamokes who cut the gas line of a Rep's brother in Tennessee?
Maybe you feels kinship with the fools who spit on a black congressman last week, or the ones who yelled racist epithets at elected reps.

The troglodytes who follow his irrational line of thinking can't see to grasp the simplest parts of government 101:

In every election,
In every debate,
In every court decision,
In every piece of legislation...

...somebody wins and somebody loses..

The honorable show some class when they lose...
They're gracious - instead of being infantile.
They accept that sometimes one does not get what one wants...

Those of us who suffered through eight years of George Bush, though he was a fool... but we didn't offer to cancel the US Government because of it.

No progressive was out in the street offering to kill representatives
No progressive was carrying a gun to a Presidential appearance.
No progressive threw bricks through Republican rep's windows.
No progressive told America to "reload".

By the way, if you don't grasp the significance in the incidents of broken windows at Dem's offices, maybe you should look up 'kristalnacht' in wikipedia.

In any event, if representative democracy isn't what you want,
there are plenty of places where that annoying 'majority rule' isn't considered important.

The right to health is part of our Declaration of Independence:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life..."

AND our Constitution:

"promote the general Welfare"

One cannot have life without health, nor can one's welfare be in any way interpreted to be 'Promoted' without it.

Ergo, like racial discrimination, woman's suffrage, Social Security and Medicare...
This is a right whose understanding we have finally begun to realize - Gee, and we're only the second to last nation in the hemisphere to do it.

Like the latter two above, this is the BEGINNING of the implementation - and just as was said about both Social Security and Medicare, it ain't right yet.

On the other hand, this isn't the end of any world we are familiar with.
