I was discussing the movie Sicko (about the bad shape Health Care is in right now in the USA) and mentioned the fact that countries like Great Britain and France have Universal Health care, and it's not at all bad for taxpayers and doctors alike - he went off on me like nitroglycerin, saying things about how you have to wait for months in Canada, for an MRI...

Yeah, you're right. I just overlapped the 2 pics. I screwed up my scales when trying to figure out where everyone was.

BTW: To get back to that page, I put in "strongly agree" for everything and got
Economic Left/Right: 0.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 4.36

Hmm, i thought putting strongly agree for everything would result in something around 0,0, if the test were balanced with questions that represented each side.

oddly enough, "strongly disagree" for everything gives out:
Economic Left/Right: 0.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.36
2010: 5th in NYS
