wtf?

I added a third option in the poll. "This poll is inherently flawed."

When you are in congress you have to vote against bills even if you are for the cause if it contains things that are unacceptable.



Even though Kerry was not my canidate it was appalling to see republicans calling him a "flip-flopper" for his votes in congress.



Sick and twisted.

That wasn't even close to being the important thing to address about my post.

Do you at least understand the concept that sometimes you would have to vote against a bill that you support?



I prefer to keep who I voted for private. I hope you can respect that.

Agreed. You must look at his record though. He voted hundreds of times against certain plans and for tax increases; then tried to run for president supporing the complete opposite.

Yeah, I can understand. It would probably be difficult for him to take any position when running for president because with the amount of time he was in congress, you could probably make him look for or against damn near anything.



One thing I have a hard time understanding in this country is why taxes are such a dirty word. Well, I guess I do understand since such a large portion of our tax money goes to military, which seems to be more important than even our own people.



But we all want things like longer vacations, better social programs, cleaner environment, etc like they have in Europe. How do you think they pay for all that stuff? High taxes of course.I am all for higher taxes, or what would be better yet is to reduce taxes along with military spending.



You want lower crime in this country? Sure, we all do. How do you do it? You cover the bases of a functional society. Take Sweden for instance. The mother and father both get a full paid year off of work when they have a child. The mother is usually home with the kid the first year and the father the second. Their jobs are secure and their employer MUST give them their job back when they are ready to return.



To have a functional, low crime society these are the kinds of ideas we could try. I know America has the resources but we need to learn what to give prioriety.
