Bachmann and Perry are the two who are really competing and Romney takes on the Edwards-esque role in the GOP primaries.
I feel like it's ultimately going to be between Romney and Perry. I think out of everyone, Romney is probably the most consistent but Perry got started off well.

Virtually all of the candidates' religious views scare me. Romney's however, are not mainstream enough to attract the wingnuts. Given the crap that makes up the horrible GOP pool of the next election -- Romney should not be President -- but he's the only one I am not trembling at. He'll probably end up being Bush 3 when it comes to policy.

I'm voting for Romney.
He should have already been our president. Obama is a joke.
Obamacare? Dumbest idea.

You know Obamacare has many, many similarities with Romneycare, right? Soooooo.... you may want to revisit this strategy.

Okay, I'm a republican, so I can be biased.

I'm going to vote against anyone who tries to legalize partial-birth abortion (yknow, killing a baby as it's given birth to). Just because it didn't pass doesn't mean Obama didn't want it to happen.

Obamacare is stupid. If it doesn't work in Canada, why would it work here? Being on a 10 month waitlist to give birth to a baby? hah. I'm going into the medical field and it is so unrealistic. Doctors and medical practitioners DESERVE to be paid well. They are fucking saving your lives! If every doctor is treated and paid the same way by everyone, the urgency for them to do their best work may not be as high.

Oh, and in his healthcare bill, Obama snuck in (or tried to sneak in) funding to pay for abortions in other countries. How the fuck is that any of the United States' business? Spending money to get rid of debt isn't very logical to me, but I am just some uneducated 18 year old.

But, I'm not saying I love Romney.
However, I've never loved a presidential candidate. You've just got to pick the best in a pool full of shitty people.

yeah, doctors are totally only motivated to do well because they make a lot of money. it's a proven fact that they don't care about people, which is why they chose careers that involve saving lives.

The fact that somebody could be so stupid and also be going into the medical field (where he could one day be "fucking saving lives!") is scary.

Obama tried to pass Roe v. Wade? It's a good thing he's not 40 years late to that party.

You're right, Obamacare doesn't work in Canada...because ObamaCare and Canada's health care system are completely different. Canada's health care system is more comparable to England's NHS. ObamaCare also doesn't do anything in terms of the doctors getting paid. In fact, it'll ensure they're getting paid if anything. ObamaCare basically forces 1. More money to go to health insurance companies, and 2. For those companies to pay out more of that money. I'm not a huge fan of the mandate, but unfortunately that's what we got since the idea of a public option (Ie Australia, where health care is cheaper) was shouted down as socialist.

Also, you don't get wait listed if you go into labor while pregnant, you idiot.

lolwut? Even if any of this were true...Obama had no hand in writing the bill (which, as many of his supporters will tell you, is part of the problem)

And the guy that passed the exact same health care plan in his state that you are bashing, and says things like "Corporations are people" is who you think is the best in this pool?





This has to be a troll, right?

I'm not saying this is the way I think or this is how I think medical professionals should be like. I'm being realistic. Many doctors are greedy and ignorant today and got in the field for social status and good money. I've witnessed it many times and that's partly why I'm going into the medical field. Because I've been fucked over by those doctors over and over again and want to be different. Very few give a damn anymore. Sad, but true.

Plus Romney took care of a problem in his state. Obama is just trying a federal healthcare takeover because only some places in America need healthcare.
