when a state does something stupid like the MA health care reform, it impacts a small number of people. when the feds do the same, it impacts the entire country. if anyone had spent any time looking at the MA program and it's problems, they would not have tried to copy any part of it.....except....this government wants to destroy the private insurance industry because their goal is single payer (government) health care.
as for gun control, you should spend some time looking at how many time bills are presented to control guns, ammo, and registration. even though those bill rarely go anywhere, you can read the intent, and see who has put them forward.
you can also read the writings of various obama people and what they would like to do with gun control. it's all out there. if your guns were important to you, you didn't do your homework.
mccain is an idiot and the best move he made was putting palin on the ticket. even though mccain is an idiot, i fail to see how one could go from supporting him to supporting obama, unless you believed all that he said during his campaign. if you did, again, you did not do your homework on the man.
forgot the add: the UN small arms treaty which this admin supports.
