    do you believe that taking away free birth control will save the taxpayers money in the long-run?
    Do you believe that is the only solution, forcing other people to pay for irresponsible people's birth control?

    Not giving poor people free stuff is apparently more important than a favorable outcome.

    Like forcing people to pay for gratuitous wars. Only a condom is so much cheaper than a Tomahawk.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    taxation should never be forced....because when it is and used for things like redistribution...its wrong.

    when taxation is by commerce only, then taxes are not forced, and money can be used for redistribution.

    the military is power of the u.s. federal government.

    noble things are subjective...

I usually vote democrat because currently, their candidates usually resemble my beliefs more closely than republican candidates. I've voted for republicans plenty of times, however, and depending on the campaign I will likely end up voting republican in the upcoming presidential election. I'm a liberal, but I'm not a democrat.

    and yeah, here in Colorado you can register to vote and simultaneously register with a party at the DMV when you get your drivers license. I was actually surprised at how smoothly it went when I had to get rid of my old VA license.

    Right. That's what I thought.

    You do realize we're not talking about condoms here. In fact, what we're most likely talking about is a test and marketing run sponsored by one of those evil Big Pharma corps you detest.
