Do you believe that Congressman Patrick Kennedy was treated fairly after his driving incident in which he was in an accident in the middle of the night.
Yes
Maybe
No
I haven't heard about it.
When a member of Congress is involved in an incident while driving, how should they be treated?
They should be escorted to their home and no report filed.
The scene should be documented but nothing else if nobody was hurt.
There should be a full inquiry, including use of alcohol or drugs.
They should be immediatly removed from office.
After Patrick Kennedy's incident, he put himself into a rehabilitation clinic and was there for three weeks for treatment of prescription of medications he takes. Was this a good course of action?
Yes, if he says he's cured, that's all I need.
Three weeks is a standard treatment.
It would have been better if he had stayed for 6-8 weeks.
He should have recused himself from matters pertaining to congress during the treatment.
He had no problem and should have not gone into treatment at all.
This story never happened.
I don't know.
When it comes to the Patrick Kennedy story.......
I would have a different opinion if it were a republican involved.
I would have the same opinion if a republican were involved.
Cynthia McKinney struck a Capitol Police officer when she was stopped for bypassing a metal detector. She was not wearing her congressional ID badge. Did they do the right thing?
No, it's the responsibility of Capitol Police to know the faces of all members of Congress.
Yes, anyone not wearing their badge should have been stopped.
No, they singled her out only because she is African American.
This is a total fabrication. It never happened.
When it comes to the Cynthia McKinney story.......
She reacted to the whole thing properly.
She should submit a written apology for her conduct and verbally state it at a press briefing.
She should apologize and resign from office or face impeachment.
If a white man did the same thing Cynthia McKinney did......
My opinion would be harsher.
My opinion would be less harsh.
I would have the same opinion.
If an African American man did the same thing Cynthia McKinney did.......
My opinion would be harsher.
I would have the same opinion.
My opinion would be less harsh.
If a white woman did the same thing Cynthia McKinney did.......
I would have the same opinion.
I would have a less harsh opinion.
I would have a harsher opinion.
If what Cynthia McKinney did were done by a republican.......
My opinion would be harsher.
My opinion would be the same.
My opinion would be less harsh.
Tom Delay was indicted in allegations of money laundering during the 2002 campaign. He has since resigned from his Speaker of the House position, and now, his seat in office. Was he treated fairly?
Yes, he deserves to be investigated for everything.
No, it was politically motivated.
This story is a total fabrication.
Tom Delay's charges are for a law that did not exist at the time they were allegedly done. Should he still be charged?
No.
Yes.
Yes, but for lesser charges.
This story is a total fabrication.
If what Tom Delay is charged with were done by a democrat, my opion would be.....
Not as harsh as Tom Delay.
Even more tough than Tom Delay.
About the same.
Should Tom Delay have resigned from office?
Yes, so he can face the charges and clear his name.
Yes, because the seriousness of the charge is so bad, whether or not it's true.
No, because the law didn't exist at the time.
No, he should stay until after the court proceedings.
Would you expect a democrat to resign from office if accused of a similar offense?
Yes.
Yes, only if it's a law that exists at the time of the accused offense.
No.
Tom Delay has changed his residency to Virginia and removed himself from the 2006 congressional race for reelection. Democrats are going to court to force him to run for reelection in Texas. Is this right?
Yes, he will always be a resident of Texas.
Yes, it will help get a democrat elected.
No, he cannot run if he doesn't maintain residency in Texas.
No, it makes the democrats look bad.
I have no opinion.
This part of the story is a total lie.
Congressman William Jefferson had his office searched with a warrant after evidence that he received a $100,000 bribe. They found $90,000 cash in hundred dollar bills in his freezer. Was this search justified and legal?
Not only justified, totally legal. Evidence was clear.
Justified, but not legal. No member of Congress should ever have their office searched ever.
Not justified, not legal.
This story is a total lie.
Should William Jefferson resign from office during the investigation into this?
Yes.
Yes, if charged with a crime.
No.
This is a total lie.
If what William Jefferson is accused of were done by a republican, how would your opinion change?
It would be equally harsh.
It would be equally mild (so what this happened?)
It would be more harsh.
It would be more mild.
If a republican were accused of what William Jefferson is accused of should that person resign?
Yes, but William Jefferson should not.
Yes, and so should William Jefferson.
No, but William Jefferson should.
No, and neither should William Jefferson.
When is comes to allegations of misconduct by members of congress......
Republicans are doing most of the bad deeds.
They are all guilty of something.
There is too much emphasis on any wrong doing by anyone in congress.
Democrats are doing most of the bad deeds.
When it comes to allegations of misconduct in congress......
They should be investgated the same regardless of political party.
We should turn a blind eye on democrats and investigate republicans only.
We should give members of congress a free pass on everything, including bribery, drug use, drunk driving, money laundering etc.
We should give a blind eye to republicans and investigate democrats only.
When it comes to stories such as these.......
I wasn't aware of any of these, and will try to pay more attention.
I follow all of these and more.
I know very little about them, and will pay closer attention.
I wasn't aware of any of these, and frankly don't care of the outcome.
Update to Patrick Kennedy. On June 13, he announced that he would plead guilty to driving under the influence of prescription drugs. Do you believe this is a good course of action for him?
Yes, he can get this behind him.
No, he did nothing wrong and should fight it.
Yes, and he should resign from office too.
No, he is only trying to hide the truth about other issues.
Ann Coulter recently released a book called 'Godless, the Church of Liberalism.' Was the mainstream media fair to her when they questioned only a few paragraphs on one page?
Yes, and I did read the entire book.
No, why use only a small part to make such a blanket accusation?
Yes, she's a conservative so she should be criticized.
No, I read the whole book and this part doesn't summarize it properly.
I didn't know she wrote a book but it must be good.
I didn't know she wrote a book but it must be bad if the media says so.
After listening to the media pound Ann Coulter about her book......
I don't want to buy the book, but I might leaf through it at a bookstore.
I want nothing to do with any Ann Coulter books.
I can't wait to get my copy.
I'm going to get myself a copy and a copy for a friend.
Even though I disagree with her politics, I might read it to learn more about what maked conservatives tick.
Virginia and North Carolina both have congressional districts that are very oddly shaped. They take very urban sections of cities and are linked by sections that are as little as 50 feet wide. Is this a good or bad thing?
Neither bad nor good. When the the census comes in, it was easier to adjust those lines as little as possible.
It's ok but some people shouldn't be represented by someone nearly 100 miles away.
It's good because it guarantees democrat minorities in the House of Representatives.
It's bad because it creates districts that are heavily populated with minorities.
I don't care.
The above statement is a total lie.
And now my GoldieLocks question I feel that when it comes to taxes in general.......
I am liberal and feel we are over taxed.
I am middle of the road and feel we are over taxed.
I am conservative and feel we are over taxed.
I am liberal and feel we are taxed too little
I am middle of the road and feel we are taxed too little
I am conservative and feel we are taxed too little
I am liberal and feel we are taxed just right
I am middle of the road and feel we are taxed just right
I am conservative and feel we are taxed just right.
The United States income tax system as it exists now, allows for people with certain circumstances to not only get refunded every penny they had withheld, but get additional money by claiming the Child Tax Credit, the Earned Income Credit and others. Is this right?
Total hogwash. Once you get all your money back, that's all you can get back.
It's good because it helps low income people get more money from the government (from other people)
It's bad because it doesn't encourage people to control the size of their family or to earn more money to make ends meet.
It's good because it's not fair that some people make more money than others.
It's bad because it punishes people who work hard and are successful.
The Earned Income Credit, Child Tax Credit, and other such tax programs should be......
Kept in place just as they are
Improved upon so more people can get bigger refunds
Eliminated immediatly
Gradually reduced over the course of 10 years or so until we no longer need it.
The end goal of welfare is to
get as many people off it through training and other resources
get as many people on it to create more people dependant on the government.
I don't know and I don't care
The government cannot give a dollar to anyone (for whatever reason) until it takes that dollar from someone else.
That's the way it should be....let's punish all those successful people
I have to agree, but I don't like it.
I don't agree....it's all the government's money, they just let us use some of it from time to time.
Wow, what an insightful thought.
I can't come up with anything more ignorant than this.
