    States with most uninsured most likely to believe euthanasia myths

    Well, not that this is a surprise, but the uneducated in this country and the poor are really being taken advantage of by the right wingnuts. Sad really.

    States With Most Uninsured Most Likely To Believe Euthanasia, Govt. Takeover Myths

    A new study by Gallup shows that large swaths of populations in the South and West -- anywhere from one-in-five to one-in-four individuals -- are currently lacking health insurance coverage.

    These same regions also have the largest percentage of populations who believe widely perpetuated mistruths about the Obama agenda, including allegations that the president will set up "death panels" and wants a complete government takeover of the health care system.
    And before you come yelling at me for siting an article using one poll, these poll results back up others on the same topic.
    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.

    Red States have the highest divorce, teenage pregnancy, and porn purchases as well.

    Chart of the Day: Red States, Blue States, and Morality Vox Nova

    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.

    You help them out and give them the medicine. Hence, I am pro-single payer. Public Option is a good compromise I guess, but it's not enough. It will work though given other countries' record.

And Jethro says allof this while he carries two adult porn DVD' to his truck.

    Well, since I'm not insured and NOT sucking off the teat of any insurance company and actually saving money for the purpose of emergencies AND a texas conservative(but independent, I don't like the GOP), I guess I'm not allowed to say anything, am I?

    Sure you are, but you will never have enough money to pay your hospital bills given the right emergency unless you are one of the rich rich people out there, which is fine. But if you are, don't use yourself as a comparison to the rest of Americans who are far from that..... Stop playing pity party.

    Re: States with most uninsured most likely to believe euthanasia myths

    It's hard to measure how many people believe "myths" about the health care bill because those "myths" are merely exaggerations of the truth. Sure, the government won't set up death panels, but they will end up deciding who gets treated and who doesn't, which will be life or death for some people. Government takeover of the health care industry is also not completely out of the question, even if it doesn't happen immediately.

    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.
