Hillary is a Douche

Hillary has been complaining, and I have seen her supporters echoing her, that Obama doesn’t support Universal Health Care. Umm… notice to the idiots who parrot her, yes he does. His plan is Universal Health Care. His plan, offers health care to everyone who wants it, and mandates coverage for children. Everyone can be covered, that my friends is Universal Health Care! Hillary’s plan on the other hand isn’t Universal Health Care, it is Mandatory Health Care because she thinks you are too dumb to make a decision regarding your own health care. Under her health plan you have to be covered, if you want to or not, meaning if your employer offers a better plan now, they will probably stop under her plan, even if their plan is much better because health care costs represent one of the largest costs of being an employer, and if the employee has to have coverage from the government anyhow, then why pay the extra costs when you don’t have to? Under Hillary’s plan we end up with less choice, and worse service from our health care providers. Under Hillary’s plan, you have to see a doctor every year under penalty of law. I haven’t seen a doctor in nearly 10 years, and I see no reason the government should force me to see one every year.
Something to keep in mind is Hillary gets lots of money from Pharmaceuticals, who stand to make big under any socialized plan, and their margins are already twice the margins that oil companies get. So we begin to see why she has part of her plan mandatory doctor visits. Your doctor says you need prescription X, you pay a small fee, the government covers the rest, and suddenly millions of more people are taking prescription X making the pharmaceutical companies even happier. Suddenly, not only are their margins twice that of oil as they are today, their actual profits go up due to increased volume.
Obama, undoubtedly also gets money from the big drug companies, but not as much. His plan is true Universal Health Care. Many employers may continue to offer better health care plans under Obama’s plan, since coverage becomes a choice, they will want to compete with Employer B down the street who offers none and leaves it to the government plan alone, meaning they get the better employees. Obama trusts American’s are smart enough to make an informed decision about their health care coverage. I am sure that if his plan was adopted, most every American who doesn’t have coverage now, would elect coverage. Some people who have coverage will undoubtedly switch depending on the cost/benefit of staying with their employer sponsored health care provider, or going with Obama’s Universal Health Care. For example, with my current employer, the plan they sponsor is probably better than the Universal Health Care that Obama would offer (or Hillary’s Mandatory Health Care would demand), so in that case I am best served by staying with that plan, but my prior employer’s plan was fairly bad, and both Obama’s and Hillary’s would be better, save for the fact that Hillary demand I see a doctor every year.
In short, Obama is offering true Universal Health Care. Don’t believe Hillary’s lies. All she offers is Mandatory Health Care because she thinks you are too stupid to make your own health care choices and she’s in bed with the drug companies.

My Election Preditions For Now

It is still early in the primary season, but I’ll lay out my official election predictions, as they stand right now.
On the Democrat side, which is an easier one to predict, I’ll lay best odds on an Obama/Edwards ticket with an eventual win as the Republican’s will not put up somebody who can beat any Democrat, even Hillary would beat anybody the Republican’s are likely to put up (read as Ron Paul is the only Republican who stands a chance to beat the Democrats). Obama/Edwards will be seen as the “change” ticket, even though they are evil CFR members, the public at large doesn’t care and America will go to Hell as a result. America will no longer be the best place to live, just on the top tier with several others that are just as bad, or close enough that it doesn’t matter. I’ll give a small outside chance to it being either Clinton/Edwards or Edwards/Clinton. Clinton is leading in Michigan, but that is because Obama and Edwards are not on the ticket due to Michigan violating rules by moving its primary ahead of Super Tuesday (Feb 5th). This may lead to party backlash against Clinton. Unfortunately, the only decent non-evil Democrat, Kucinich, won’t get much, but may be given a spot to speak at the Convention.
The Republican side becomes far more difficult to predict. It depends on how things play out in the big states like Florida, California and New York which is where Giuliani is putting most of his efforts at works out. See the Republican’s have a winner take all in lots of states for the primary, so it works out like a direct popular vote, the winner only needs to take those three to win the whole thing (this is the advantage of the electoral college, it makes states like Ohio matter, under a direct popular vote, even Cleveland is too small to care about… but that is another post that I have gone over before and will likely cover again as the real election draws near). If Giuliani can’t win enough votes in the big states, it will probably be McCain, who for some ungodly reason is having a come back… of course I rather have McCain, as horrifyingly evil as he is than Giuliani, who is a billion times worse. The vice-president candidate I’ll give odds to Huckabee, who despite his many evils, is seen as the choice of Evangelicals. I’ve already talked about how Evangelicals are trying to continue to fuck over the country with choosing Huckabee, but as he is seen as the Evangelical choice, I am laying odds on him being given the second spot on the ticket with the second choice being Romney who has a chance of appealing to Evangelicals but not to the same degree, but still far more then either Giuliani or McCain. Huckabee is also the third most anti-war candidate after Ron Paul and Kucinich, which would make the ticket more appealing to some of the anti-war people, especially on the Republican side, and there is a big gap until you hit the next Democrat candidate on the anti-war stance and a huge gap from them to the rest of the Republicans on the war issue.
Ron Paul… Well I expect him to drop out after Super Tuesday unless things go drastically well. This makes me sad as he is the only non-evil Republican. I hope he’ll take the Libertarian parties invitation and seek their nomination (they can’t just toss him in as their candidate, he has to ask for it, then he has to be chosen at the convention). If he doesn’t look to their nomination, I don’t expect him to be invited to the Convention, despite his huge popularity, due to his stance on several key issues. If he does go for and wins the Libertarian nomination, they will get enough votes to be put on the debates next election cycle and be on the ballot all over without all the problems they now face trying to get ballot access, this alone is reason enough for him to go for it, to give a third party an actual voice next election cycle.
Anyhow, in the end the country gets fucked. We get no change, just more taxes and bigger government and a faster slide to the North American Union. Unless of course we put Ron Paul or Kucinich in office… of course with Kucinich we still get more taxes and bigger government, but at least he would stall the move to the North American Union.
