Furthermore, every conservative politician who has been trying to campaign against the Health Insurance Industry Bailout Act of 2010 has been campaigning to replace it with itself. This further supports the notion of Obama being deeply conservative in his actions - which are of course where his legacy will come from.

Alternatively, it supports the assertion that the country enjoys one party rule--The Progressive Party. Those understanding that this route only leads to European-style collapse, and opposing it, will be crushed.

I reject your logical operator, the premise of your first statement, and mostly buy the second one.
I did too read ~2/3 of the Communist Manifesto, and thought it pure propaganda.

the second is also in agreement with my consistent narrative of the current POTUS being the most conservative president in the history of our country

For some purely subjective definition of 'conservative', which actual conservatives would reject, sure. It's your 1st Amendment right to be daft, and you do exercise it with flair.

I don't need to make shit up when I don't understand how something works.

And scientists aren't doing that constantly? Look at the groovy symbols, man. All that could well be true, or turn out to be a big, fat brontosaurus.
These are the conjectures of the day. Are they so much phlogiston? If we're going to allow that Jesus Christ may not be the Messiah (and we should, lest we fall into fanaticism) then we should fall equally short of fetishing science as though these squishy theories couldn't be overturned next week.

My point is that "following the rules of God" is the object this leads to the maximizing of individual liberty. All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. There is a whole spectrum of non-sinful opportunity for me; the question is how to maximize the glory of God. But the "common good" is achieved in passing, in the passing of the need to fear God and walk humbly in His ways from one generation to the next.
"Common good", on its own, is such an amorphous, conjectural notion as to seem a campaign slogan of the "Forward" or "Hope and Change" variety. We're born individuals, and derive a notion of "common" from the population. We certainly do NOT move from the group to the individual, sorry. Christ died for each individual person's sins in all of time. "God so loved the world," yes, but remember that "whosoever believeth" is an individual, not corporate, requirement.
