A first-rate and fascinating post, MG. I do wonder what the results would be if the same survey were run in Canada. I do guess that especially among the elderly opinions would be very different. Comes from having socialized medicine - when you get the benefit you begin to realize it isn't nearly so bad after all.

The real fun would be not when you compared views by partisan position but by geography - I'd love to see teh survey duplicated between Alberta and Quebec!

My guess is it would resemble the gulf of public opinion lying between Texas and Vermont.

Closer, Boxer, but I'd bet even wider and deeper - and exacerbated by language differences!

Libertarianism, civil rights and civil liberties, guess which group views these in the most negative light. :idea:
Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.

Well, it depends on whether they even know what Libertarianism stands for - but then their version of civil liberties and rights might not be what you mean by the terms, either.
