Paul Krugman vs. Paul Curtman

with 2 comments

Paul Krugman, nobel prize winning economist, says that the people protesting at health care town hall meetings are anti-American and amount to a mob.

Tell that to Paul Curtman:

Our country was founded on freedom, not politeness.

For those who might be tempted to brush off his criticism, please read The Federalist #41, written by James Madison, known as the Father of the Constitution.

  1. If you don’t know who Rick Scott is then you don’t know who is duping you. This is the false prophet. Scott is the money-changer you let into your temple. Scott is a big health care CEO (whose company by the way was fined $1.7 billion for fraud) who is financing the disruption of the town hall meetings. He is the temptor who has cause you to stumble into the gospel of hatred for your fellow man. His “salvation” (money) is to get you to server corporate profits instead of your fellow man.

    One Master said “Feed my sheep,” “As ye do to the least of these my brothers, you do unto me.” Perhaps you can appreciate how that would be served by universal health care?
    The other “master” says, “shout them down,” and “voice your anger.” Does that really serve your mission to be the spreader of the Good News?

    I truly feel sorry for good-hearted people who have been drawn into the hatred of political extremism and who honestly think they are serving Christ, when in fact they are serving corporate lobbyists. What a shame!

  2. There is not a shred of evidence that suggests that Paul Curtman, or any other protester, is receiving any money from Rich Scott. And even if he were, the constituional argument that he made is still valid.

    I can’t find any evidence in the Bible to support or refute your assumption that Jesus would support government-mandated charity. And, one can still debate whether the programs being advanced are the best ways to help those in need. As a Christian, I believe the invocation of the name of our Lord in support of a political cause to be one of the most blatant violations of the 3rd commandment.
