Truth. An uninformed voter is arguably one of the most dangerous threats our country faces. You're right, people should take a more active role in government, especially at this critical time when its playing such a larger role in our lives...
An educated decision is the best decision.
knows whats up
People just don't understand that, "Health care is not a right" you have the right to get health care and the doctor has the right to give it to you. Don't you think it's kind of rude to ask other people to pay for your health care? I do.
first of all well written thread dicussion. Obama has done what exactly what he said he wanted to do. i would consider myself liberal but am surprised how much money he is spending to stimulate the economy espeacially when the debt for the u.s is extremly high. alot of people did not look at his policies but did simply believed he was a "miracle" man. i must say i do support some of the policies such as closing gitmo (although he really should have thought that out better, and second he should have know other countries would not want these detainees that is just common sence) and moving troops out of iraq to afghanistan. i am from canada, and our healthcare is actaully run by the provinces(basically a state). healthcare is better or worse depending on the province. our system could be much better but i do like it better paying for healthcare. and our system is actaully not completly free there are some things you do have to pay for e.g a cast if you break arm. obama in at the end of his presidentcy will probably judge on how well the econmy recouvers. and to me sarah palin never knew what she was talking about. she missed the point on many key topics and the media did play her family up to much which i was unfair however she got distroyed(my opinion) by biden on t.v debates. back to main discussion though, alot of people jsut believed obama would wave a magic wand and the world would be saved and did not actaully look into his policies. many more people should have questioned how he would acomplishes this task.
spark notes: i think too many people look at obama as a mircale man
i support social healthcare,troops to afghanistan, and closing gitmo
obama spent to much money on the economy
sarah palin just comes off as crazy to me
