Why do liberals support Obamacare, when socialism has always failed?

Every time anyone has every tried big government socialism it's always been a failure - like North Korea and the former Soviet Union for example. Yet, liberals still socialist government run healthcare. When will they realize that socialism has never worked and never will work?

    "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so." Ronald Reagan

    The Liberal ideology is a theory which holds forth beliefs that have no basis in reality.

    They are Advocates of a policy that empowers a strong government to enslave its people with a high tax burden incident to the support of extravagant and unnecessary social programs destructive to both the work ethic among the lower class, and the incentive to innovate and succeed among the working class.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    A democracy will continue to exist up until

    the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous

    gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority

    always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from

    the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally

    collapse over loose fiscal policy

    A broken government can't be fixed by the same government that broke it.

    You are wrong. Syria is a secular country and when compared to other Islamic states it is much better. All the other Islamic countries are ultra conservative theocracies and have added nothing to their name. When you look at Syria you see actually a government that has cooperated with the UN in destroying its WMD and supported the Palestinians during the cold war.

    If it were socialism it would be free to one and all, we don't have universal health insurance. Yeah, yeah, yeah, they called Medicare socialism too. Now even the most far right wing nut doesn't want his social security touched. Funny how people use words to scare others when they don't even seem to know the real meaning of those words. Perfect example in this question.

    Because they don't know what they're promoting is a scam and a tyrannical power move. The left is thinking with emotions rather then logic. Health insurance companies caused cost increases as an excuse to gain more power by bribing government to force people to now buy their insurance by gun point.

    North Korea is a totalitarian communist ruled country. The former USSR was a dysfunctional communistic country. Neither fits the definition of socialist state. Many European socialistic democracies have universal health care, most of them work fine. You accusations are wrong and apparently you know little about government.

    A lot of people on the left are athiests so they believe that man has the capacity and power to do good on its own, hence beleif in other men in positions of power. That is an accurate way to describe Communism. Even though this kind of thinking has failed time and time again people continue to believe it. Obamacare is a perfect example of this. Many people know that man in itself is limited in its power to do good because of his fallen nature. Truly great men have acknowledged that they're strength and talent comes from a higher source, that in who's presence a man must be humble. Humility equals wisdom and capacity to make a difference. George Washington and Abraham Lincoln are good examples of this. But the left looks at his maker in a condescending way, hence shooting himself in the foot, Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot, it boggles my mind that many people in America don't seem to understand this. People on the Left must be the most deceived and misguided people on this earth. They can't seem to see things for the way they are.

    That support is fading in the polls as 0bama Care has over 70% disapproval amongst the public. The one thing liberals do understand is basic economics when it comes to paying bills. I have to laugh when i hear a liberal defend 0bama Care by saying has a new policy that costs less and has better coverage because obviously he or she telling a lie and trying to save face.

    For the same reason why Conservatives support "Trickle-Down Theory"; and wait the dry spell continues. Or why they continued to support the Bush Administration, claiming that the economic climate was solid; as the bottom collapsed. Then with selective memory blame Obama; as if the Bush years didn't exist.

    You havent said what is the connection between Obzmacare and socialism. You know that other countries such as England and Canada have national health care, don't you? Or do you?
