  3. This poll should have been Conservative or Liberal.

    Some "republicans" these days are so freakin liberal its ****in scary.

    However I rarely see a conservative Dem. There are one or two of them out there though.

  4. What has hundreds of legs but only 8 teeth?

    The front row at the Republican national convention.

    Do republicans want sick people to use medical marijuana?

    No, but presidents can use cocane.

    Why dont republicans get mad when people write jokes about them?

    because they cant read.

  5. Third parties can never work in a first past post system when national information is widely accessible everywhere as it is.

    In years gone by, third parties were capable of gaining ground only because of people being unaware of the national trend and which 2 parties were the most popular nationwide. Now that the information is readily available on a minute by minute basis, no third party will ever be capable of gaining any more than 10% or so of the vote at most.

  6. A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am!" The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon approximately 30 feet above sea level. You are 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude." She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican.""I am," replied the man. "How did you guess?" "Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me." The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat." "I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?" "Well" said the man, "You don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You've made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect ME to solve your problem. You're in EXACTLY the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it's MY fault."

  7. A woman married three times walked into a bridal shop one day and told the sales clerk that she was looking for a wedding gown for her fourth wedding. "Of course, madam," replied the sales clerk, "exactly what type and color dress are you looking for?"

    The bride to be said: "A long frilly white dress with a veil." The sales clerk hesitated a bit, then said, "Please don't take this the wrong way, but gowns of that nature are considered more appropriate for brides who are being married the first time - for those who are a bit more innocent, if you know what I mean? Perhaps ivory or sky blue would be nice?"

    "Well," replied the customer, a little peeved at the clerk's directness, "I can assure you that a white gown would be quite appropriate. Believe it or not, despite all my marriages, I remain as innocent as any first-time bride. You see, my first husband was so excited about our wedding, he died as we were checking into our hotel.

    My second husband and I got into such a terrible fight in the Limo on our way to our honeymoon that we had that wedding annulled Immediately and never spoke to each other again."

    "What about your third husband?" asked the sales clerk.

    "That one was a Democrat," said the woman, "and every night for four years, he just sat on the edge of the bed and told me how good it was going to be."

"You can do it", the lawyer said, "But why? You'll be dead soon, why do you want The old man was critically ill. Feeling that death was near, he called his lawyer. "I want to become a Democrat?" "That's my business! Get me the form!"

    Four days later, the old man got his registration changed. His lawyer was at his bedside making sure his bill would be paid.

In a faint whisper, as he breathed his last, the old man said: "One less Democrat..."

    Okay, now tell me. How is our government going to save everyone's lives?

    Its very naive to think that they can. If you're going to point to places like Canada, etc, as prime examples of how "wonderful" socialized health care is then you're going to have to explain away the fact that getting simple procedures done like MRI's, which can be done on the spot here in the US, often take 3+ months to get an appointment for and how droves of well-off canadians will take their serious health matters to the US?

    Would we like to save everyone, yes. Can we, no. Is government the fix for people with insufficient health coverage, no.

    In addition, if you think socialized healthcare is "cheap", you're wildly mistaken. The taxation rate for healthcare in the socialized countries is ridiculous.

    Most people working in government are there because they are not valuable commodities in the private sector, and by virtue of that, the government run programs generally are much less efficient. Lets not give any more of our money to the less accomplished people in society to handle for us than we have to. I would rather be responsible for myself. (Wait a minute...that's the big difference between human beings and liberals: responsibility)

    If you throw out ridiculous slogans without providing anything of substance to back your "positions", you are probably a liberal democrat.

    There's only one being that I can think of with the knowledge and strength to keep any number of people orderly without overlooking/neglecting other factors; however, the being I'm thinking of is omnipotent. Until this changes, any government or concept of government you'll ever be exposed to is going to be less than perfect, and that's a fact you're just going to have to accept.

    Of course they'll be less then perfect. I brought up the fact that the private sector, over and over again, has proven itself much more capable than the government and I said that we should keep healthcare out of government's grubby little power hungry paws.

    If the government wants to legislate in favor of healthcare, they should legislate out frivelous lawsuits that drive insurance premiums through the roof for practicing physicians and hospitals; do this and the patient sees their costs go down.

    "You can't have your cake and eat it too."

    This aphorism seems to ALWAYS hold true, despite the fact that so many people have such trouble grasping it.

  22. What does that have to do with the government running our health care system?

  23. No problem, shit happens

    How is universal medicare the government's problem...?

    "money-grubbing Republicans"? WTF?

    You think Democrats aren't the same in nature? Get a clue, man.

    Our country is ranked #4 in the world for economic freedom, just below Australia, Hong Kong, and Singapore (all 3 of which are based strongly on the United State's pro-democratic policies and free markets).

    200 years ago people like you and I wouldn't have a pot to piss in, much less universal healthcare. If that is what you want, then be prepared to live like (amoung others) the Italians do, endebted to their own government. Their labor market operates under restrictive employment regulations that hinder employment and phuck up their rate of productivity. The more control they give the government over things like finance and property rights, the more corrupt (MONEY GRUBBING) they become.

    If you lack the ability to articulate what you think and instead spout off two-lined fits of verbal masterbation into the keyboard... you might be an idiot.

  25. why doesnt everyone grow a pair and stop hiding behind Dem or Rep. make a decision.

  26. just to clarify, people who lable themselves as dem or rep in my experience have no ideas what the issue is or the facts. they just hear about an issue and blindly go with one side or the other. dont want to waste their valuable time to think about how they really feel.

    Only problem with that is Medicare IS socialized medicine.
