But the hypocrisy continues when we look at defense, protecting the borders, and keeping Americans safe.
In one instance, they seem to care, rather generically, for every American. This is evidenced in thier penchant for blated military budgets and ensuing military conflicts. Protect America, Americans and American interests, at any and all cost.
This is a predominantly a right wing phenomenon. Bloat military spending, which in turn increases the size of the military, and continue finding conflicts in order to keep the military industrial complex afloat.
But "protect America and Americans at all and any cost" is really only a military policy, because in a quest to "protect Americans" from disease and poor health, or even frivolous or gratuitous litigation, any cost is too great of one.
It is ok to stand with a united veneer, in front of each and every American in the country, so long as it's to protect them, generically, from any international threat, be it real or imagined....but as soon as it comes to the very real threats that every American faces on a day-to-day basis, one that threatens every individual regardless of race, religion, age or sexual orientation, then they must stand alone.
They must stand alone to face the financial burden of health care in the free market, while collectively, all tax dollars are pooled to finance a growing military industrial complex.
Yes, hypocrisy at it's finest.
Champion and advocate for a bigger, more technologically advanced military, under the guise of "protecting Americans", while in the same breath, villify universal health care and ignore the same moral imperative used to justify an increase in military spending.
Again, still waiting for someone to step in to explain why Universal Health Care is such a bad thing....and now, maybe use what I just said to frame the discussion.
I guess "Obama is a socialist" is an argument after all.
