If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Bill Maher: Americans Are Stupid

From NewsBusters.com a great video of Bill Maher saying Americans are stupid for opposing ObamaCare.



AMY HOLMES, CNN CONTRIBUTOR: In point of fact, Democrats did talk about healthcare endlessly. President Obama went out on the stump talking about, "Pass this bill, pass this bill." Bill Clinton said once it was passed it would become popular. Bill Clinton now, he confesses that he made a mistake, that it has not become more popular.

BILL MAHER, HOST: It's been kicked in for two days...
HOLMES: It's become less popular, and here's why.
MAHER: ...and most of it doesn't kick in till 2014. Could we wait till people see it before we can judge whether it's popular?
HOLMES: You're asking why...
(AUDIENCE APPLAUSE)
MAHER: Please, sorry.
HOLMES: But you're asking why Democrats are not campaigning on this. Because in the next 40 days with a bill that is hugely unpopular, it's not good for their re-election process.
MAHER: It would be popular if they would talk about it. They could have, if they could stand up for what they believe they could have passed Medicare for all. That's what they should have done. What they should have said is insurance companies have a million other things to insure. They insure your car and your house and if it rains and there's a flood and an earthquake and Betty Grable's legs and a million other things. They don't need to also insure life. Life should be off the table.
HOLMES: They talked endlessly about it and their agenda was rejected by the American people, that's a simple fact.
MAHER: Because they're stupid.
ANDREW BREITBART: So you're, you're officially not a Libertarian anymore, right? I mean, this position...
MAHER: Well..
BREITBART: ...has run so far from the Libertarian position. Is this, so you admit that you have more of a, you know, European socialist leaning perspective on this issue?
(AUDIENCE LAUGHTER)
BREITBART: Why is that funny?
MAHER: I'm, I'm not afraid, it's not, I'm not afraid to say European socialism works.

Gee Bill, I suspect that you'll begin to see a drop in your ratings...Americans don't like to be called stupid and generally tune  out those who call them so...
