A Greyhound bus is also much worse than a Ferrari. But many people can use it, and it is much more economical to bring 75 people to a certain place by a greyhound than by Ferraris....

That's a horrible analogy.

That analogy may yet make more sence as health care cost rise. If we wait long enouph they will get totaly out of control.  

But then that's why I like Obama, he's not waiting. He decided to address the problem right away instead of waiting for it to get out of control.

Most polititions have a time herizon that last their election cycle, so long term problems don't show up on their raidar.

I do not get the US.

They have like the most expensive yet one of the worst healtcare services in the whole western world. I do not even consider the US a western country when it comes to healthcare.

And then Obama sees this and wants to change it and the republicans vote it down? Why? The healthcare there obviously needs to be radically changed.

I think wellfare is the most important thing in the society but for some reason, it does not seem like a priority in the US.

In some countries, we get free state-financed healthcare. ATLEAST for children and people under 18.

Anyway, there are only two choices in the US (which I think is super boring, in sweden there are 8 political parties in our parliment and they all focus on different things) sooooooooooo I guess if I was an USian than I would vote on the Democrats because to me, the Republicans just seem insane, mad and crazy religious fanatics who just oppose the democrats in every single question even if it helps the country.

I think you maybe need to work on your math, Xerox.

Trump running will be...interesting.

Dude as an American I am just glad so much of the world is willing to learn English. I would be lost if you didn't.

If the economy is growing in 2012, he'll win. If it's weakening in 2012, he'll lose. Whether it is growing or weakening may or may not hardly have anything to do with him, but that's how it works.

Oh God please yes! A pious conservative chick with some spine, one who can snow-slap the hell out of the liberals, and who also happens to be hot, a rare and very delicious combination.

Hot? You mean, hot as in dumb screws good?
Oh, no, sorry, you characterized her as pious and conservative. Although... snow-slapping the hell out of the liberals... yeah, I can see her slapping, with a tight bodice and a whiplash, err...
Umm, wait... I guess, I have to think that one over.

If you don't think Sarah Palin is a MILF then you are a lost cause.

Hopefully people will realize the economy started to grow when the socialists lost control of the House of Representatives and Obama's agenda got blocked.

Businesses have a much better outlook than with democrat control of the legislature and executive branch.

I'd love for Palin to run. What I WOULD NOT like is for a Washington insider to get the Republican nomination.

Guys, unless there's someone out there who can convince China to give you back your economy, I suggest just putting the Chinese communist party in power and saving both them and yourselves a lot of time and effort.

@Elodin:

It's funny because not even China qualifies as socialist.

I just love how words like "socialist", "fascist", and "Nazi" are thrown around as though they're nothing. It makes political discussion so awthome.

If a real socialist ever came into power you'd need to make up a new word for it since you're already using 'socialist' for a bunch of centrist democrats. You'd have to call them the Zerg.
