Wouter, there is no doubt that the redneck image you have exists, however, the majority of the reason Obama care isn't liked by the majority, is because of the fact that there are so many unknowns involved with it. Even Pelosi came out with something along the lines of you have to vote it in to find out whats in it. Well, we're still finding out what's in it, and it is usually coming up with more taxes on small businesses, keeping them from hiring more people because they don't know what else is coming down the pike and how they will be able to afford it. Another BTW, the people that actually control the votes are the independents, not the far right or far left bases. Their ideas will never change. Health care reform is in fact desperately needed in this country, however, most do not want it Govt control, for fear of too much waste, fraud and abuse, not to mention higher taxation.
As to my personal beliefs, I found an interesting thing on youtube that pretty much describes my thoughts to a T. The author and myself are the same age, and have been and lived through the same experiences. We're both somewhere in that middle, with a large distrust of a powerful federal Govt, but neither far left or far right.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zfgoJzOCgg
