Sublime Tea Baggery: ‘Don’t Steal from Medicare to Support Socialized Medicine’

This demonstrates, again, that these people have no idea what socialism is. They believe it’s synonymous with authoritarianism — a belief that is a conceptual artifact from McCarthy era, when socialism was demonized by eliding it with Soviet-style communist despotism.

Trapped inside their Fox News/Limbaugh bubble, tea baggers are oblivious to the reality that democracy and socialism have existed successfully side by side in every industrialized country in the world, including the United States, for decades.

The paradox is, their stunted worldview and inability to do critical thinking are results of the fact that they are products of America’s socialized but broken educational system.

    There’s ONE big problem with the teabaggers;

    They don’t have a real leader, and by this I mean someone who is intelligent, serious, and someone who knows their economics and politics. Since they don’t have a serious leader, they go about their crazy protests not knowing what in hell they are talking about. If they had an intelligent leader, the leader could “feed” them their talking points, and have them stay rock solid steady and full-speed ahead on pre-determined topics.

    However, I get the feeling that they don’t want and would not accept an intelligent leader. They want someone ignorant, biased and ill-spoken like themselves, and that’s just what they have.

    Teabaggers: Don’t steal from Medicare to support socialized medicine!

    Obama Administration: That’s a no-brainer; We are not “stealing from Medicare to support socialized medicine.” You can go home now.

    Teabaggers: Awwwwww!!!

    This joke is funny, because Medicare is socialized medicine. I wanted to spell it out for the teabaggers coming to this site too!

    Also, people ignorant of what socialization and socialism is are just hurting themselves thinking that it means a dictator and not services for people like themselves.

    Ignorance is funny until the point that these idiots start being heard.

    LOL…if any of them really knew anything about economics and politics, they wouldn’t be Teabaggers in the first place!

    However, they DO have intelligent leaders feeding them their talking points and keeping them on message: Rush, Beck, Hannity, and the rest of Fox News.

    I remember well the TV spots Ronald Reagan did in the 60s equating Medicare with socialized medicine. These spots never came back to haunt him later on when he ran for president, though they should have. And, yes, socialism in a economic system not a system of government and it exists to varying degrees in nations all over the world.
