    When people are against something, they are more likely to want to cling to myths about that thing to affirm their position. This is true about both the left and the right.
    Just like for-profit insurance companies do today. They don't pay for every procedure or treatment.

    So again! It's besides the point.

    Do Conservatives want Insurance companies to pay for my 98 year old, nearly comotose, Grandmother with advanced Alhzheimer to be on machines that will keep here going....for $600K in medical bills per year???

    Of course they wouldnt....but when they get find that same rational thinking in a public plan ...they slam it saying we are trying to kill the elderly.

    So basically, what you are saying is that you are choosing to be uninsured, thus if you need serious medical attention, you will go to an emergency room, rack tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills (or more), and the costs will be passed on to the rest of us.

    Great system.

    So Medicare, the world's largest socialized medicine program, is killing people?

    I don't know much about medicare, but from what I've heard it's a supplement to private insurance and not a replacement. I've also heard that it greatly complicates the insurance market and is hopelessly inefficient when compared to private insurance. This is all coming secondhand though, I really don't know much about it.

    Medicare is a complete insurance plan. It covers ten of Millions of Americans.

    Medicaid is a supplement plan.

    Bigotry and stereotypes are cool as long as they are against poor white people.

    Maybe they need a protected minority status after hearing your comments.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    It's ignorance and religious dogma....pure and simple.

    These GOP base voters don't have the mental sophistication to vote in their own interest. They are not able to understand complex issues so have their "leaders" do their thinking for them.....Today that would be James Dobson, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, NRA, etc.
    It's interesting that most of the, "red", states that are listed are also the, "blackest", states. But, I'm sure know one has the balls to go there.

    Is, "red state", just a Libbo code for the states with the highest black and hispanic populations? Just asking.

    It is the other way around. There are supplemental plans to medicare.

    Ok, a little lesson for apdst:

    red state = primarily Republican leaning
    blue state = primarily Democrat leaning

    Ok, lesson over.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Utah is lilly white and has the most porn purchases.

    Nevada is majority white and has most divorces. Wyoming is #2 one of the whitest States in the Nation.

    As far as abortion rates go...minorites likely are a big factor but if you broke it down and compared Blue State minorites to Red State minorites you would see the same pattern.

    Red State ideology is bankrupt anyway you cut it.
