We're having the national healthcare discussion in the first place because even people who follow the rules, get insurance, participate, and pay their premiums, still get hung out to dry by recsission (retroactive drops of coverage by the insurer) and loss of employment. Unless you can fix those problems, go away.

Those traitors! How dare those *representatives* do such a thing as support positions that overwhelmingly popular like the end of rescission (retroactive withdrawal of coverage, usually after a major diagnosis) and the forbidding of exclusion from coverage due to pre-existing conditions.
Can't wait to read all the conspiracy junk in the comments. *popcorn*
Wilderness has a value. It purifies our water. Cleans our air. Grows our food (morels etc). And of course provides great scenery and excellent game for hunters and fishersv
While we're on the topic of religious denominations (Catholic, SBC, Lutheran etc) let's remember that *none of the above* is still the plurality in the US of A.
The "Christian" faith. Tell me. What is "Christian?" and why is Romney not "Christian?"
Anything the candidates insist on bringing up is fair game. Now to be fair, Mitt has avoided his Mormonism, but 4 of the other candidates boldly declared that "God told [us] to run," and every single candidate, Mitt included, has made a point to bring up the importance of their faith in guiding their decisions. When you do that, when you insist repeatedly that faith informs your decisions as a political figure, it is *absolutely fair* to ask questions about that faith.

This has far more to do with Ann's husband earning 25 million per year and far less to do with her being a stay at home mom. She has nothing in common with the average , income constrained household.
Ann Romney gets disdain not because she's a housewife but because her experience as a housewife consists of selecting sailing instructors, tutors, and of course finding good help. Ann Romney's life is so divergent from normal income constrained households that one can in no way compare the two.
