Australian Meme on American Politics?


So this meme comes from a group named the Australian Tea Party.  Why would Austrailia care about Obamacare? Austrailia has healthcare and gun control, by the way.  Just thought I would point that out.
So this is probably not Austrailian.

SHUT IT DOWN.  So let me get this straight.  You are in favor of putting 800 thousand people out of work without pay? Is that correct?  What did they do to you? 

You are in favor of attaching a non budgetary bill to a six week budget extension. Right? While I am not a fan of "what ifs" here's one to consider.  What if Romney had won and the Democrats in the Senate refused to pass a six week budget extension without background checks and an assault weapons ban? How would your feel about that? Do you get the idea now why this is simply wrong?

You are in favor of attaching a law that passed the U.S. Congress nearly four years ago, went through the conservative U.S. Supreme Court, and was adjudicated by the people in an election in which one candidate had as a major platform of repealing the law. He lost by both popular and electoral college.  Remind me again about majority rule. Have you actually read the Constitution?

The 11 million people who tried to sign up for Obamacare on October 1st apparently don't want it either.  Get real please. 

Could you kindly tell me to what specific Cronyism and Corruption you are referring?   It is really hard to support such general terms that have no real foundation by which to judge. Throwing around unsubstantiated terms like this is pretty irresponsible.

This is the Definition of Socialism according to Merriam-Webster: 

so·cial·ism: noun \ˈsō-shə-ˌli-zəm\: a way of organizing a society in which major industries are owned and controlled by the government rather than by individual people and companies.

Although it doesn't actually say it, the meme writer, I think, is referring to Obamacare.  Please explain to me how having people sign up through privately owned insurance companies and guaranteeing these people insurance, medicine, lifetime coverage and protection through these PRIVATELY OWNED companies or giving people a tax break for having insurance or requiring large companies that do not do so to do the right thing by their employees is socialism.  Maybe you should understand the basic definition of a word before you use it.

WE DO WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK  Does that mean anyone who does not see eye to eye with you in your extreme bubble is not American or is it that you need directions to Austrailia? (Poor imperative sentence structure.  Just thought I would point that out.)

It's my country too.
