Barack Obama could have made millions of dollars working for any law firm in the country, but instead decided to work as a civil rights attorney and community organizer in Chicago's impoverished south side. He now teaches constitutional law at the University of Chicago and has managed to put together an amazing Senate campaign, beating establishment favorite Daniel Hynes and the heavily financed Blair Hull. In the Illinois Senate, he has worked for our state law extending medical insurance to uninsured children and helped to reform the capital case laws which were found to be putting innocent people to death.<br><br>John Kerry had the moral fortitude to investigate BCCI against the wishes of his own party and ended up bringing justice to what turned out to be the underpinnings of terrorist financing before al Queda ever existed. In his last term, he and John Edwards both made strides to advance the ill-fated patients bill of rights and right now he is the only candidate running with a plan to bring down the price of health care and aid the jobs situation in America.<br><br>I have pride in my vote and I can easily defend it without resorting to hyperbolic speculation or personal attacks.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>

"the only candidate running with a plan to bring down the price of health care and aid the jobs situation in America."<br><br>By running with Captain Tort and taxing the hell out of companies? I'm less than convinced.<br><br>"I have pride in my vote and I can easily defend it without resorting to hyperbolic speculation or personal attacks."<br><br>I'm very proud of ya! Although you may want to edit the sandman crack.<br><br>
According to the Congressional Budget Office, punitive damages and tort only account for 1% of all health care costs. Also, can you name a case in which John Edwards forced an exorbitant amount of damages from a doctor? The Annenberg Political Fact Check also debunked the Bush claim that John Kerry will tax the hell out of companies.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Terrrorism will be a police action like the war on drugs or the war on prostitution<p><hr></blockquote><p>And this is a perfect example why we will never "win" a war on Terrorism... no more than we're winning the "war" on drugs. You can throw money (and troops) at it all day, and you can win individual battles, but you'll never end the war. Violence is going to beget more violence.<br><br>BTW, since when have we had a war on prostitution? Been to Nevada lately? <br><br>
