    JT, I'm curious, what was your answer to the question about the tax cuts? Keep them or get rid of them?

    Wow, you must be a hard-core liberal, my man... Hillary and Obama topped my list too, but only with a score of 34... McCain and Romney bring up the rear at 12... so it looks like I won't be voting Republican, but if Hillary is the candidate, I won't be voting Democratic either...

    My problem with Hillary is she's too calculating, to the extent that I wind up thinking she doesn't really stand for anything, other than getting herself elected... it started when she moved to New York to run for the Senate... now, I don't have the first clue what she really stands for...

    Oh, I know that all politicians have to pander to the general populace, but it's my perception that she carries it to an extreme that few approach... McCain is the same way, I liked him when he stood up against the excesses of the Bush administration, then he decided he wanted to be president, and suddenly his positions start changing... in the regard, he's not much better than Romney, who is the GOP's answer to John Kerry...

    So I can't vote for Hillary, under any circumstances... my joke about writing in Jimmy Buffett's name becomes less and less satirical with each passing day...

    I will say I liked the questions in this one better than some of the political survey's I've taken...

    I don't understand why any one would want universal health care...it is just another big step down the road to a socialist state. jterrell, I have never had anyone explain to me why universal health care would be a good idea, in all seriousness I would like for you to tell me why you think it would be. Mind you these people that you want handling your health care finances are the same ones screwing up the retirement for millions. But really, please tell me how you think so maybe I can at least understand y'alls thinking. Thanks.

    My argument for this is present many times in these forums but I know you seem a recent addition so I will gladly elaborate here.

    We need universal health care because it is a social health issue.
    We have to enforce the coverage as we do with car insurance to protect all of us.

    How many dollars are spent each year by the average family of four because of people who do not have health insurance? How many days missed of school or work?

    We already provide Medicaid and Medicare and VA Health. We are talking about expanding those programs and enforcing health coverage. The lowest level health care would be Medicare/Medicaid and it would suck. It would not be free for more than the SCHIP plan proposed but veto'd by GWB would provide, but would be reasonably priced. We would get the effect of a huge group rate plan to offset costs.

    At higher ends everyone would be eligible for the healthcare plan the Senate has. It would require paying for it of course but it would be available. And the Senators are not complaining about their coverage.

    And I see the argument present in almost every argument that the government has crappy programs so why have more. My response is which programs do we cut? Do we cut them all? Do we end Medicaid and Medicare? Do we stop delivering social security checks? If we in fact see that the programs are not something we want to do without in most cases why argue against adding another dealing with our most precious resource: our health.

    Private companies also run like crap frequently. Many are only in business because of the bailouts of the government. So there is no bullet proof system. Both would require strong management and leadership. I do favor offering financial rewards in the manner of bonuses for well run governmental organizations but I do not favor allowing them to become publicly traded and then respondent to the whims of the market or shareholders. We already see too much short term panacea at work with private businesses.

    We are behind the times in the US in a number of areas and this is one of them. This plan is not socialism anymore than any other plan. It is not going to offer everyone free health care. It is going to place a responsibility on people to carry coverage.

    A lot of companies(such as mine) and a lot of states are doing similar things already. Massachusetts has a very similar plan and it apparently works great.

    Not to mention you don't see the same level of massive law suite as we see in the US that help to run up the cost of health care something few want to deal with.

    Gravel 27
    Romney 13 (the freak agrees with me on Stem Cells)
    McCain 12
    Huckabee 12

    What they don't ask is which candidate motivates and inspires every time he speaks?

    That's the kicker for me and why I voted Obama
