And not conservative enough? How the hell can you get more restrictive on human rights and narrowmind... I mean conservative than the Republicans?
You are trolling right? The Democrats have done nothing but limit rights since... their inception?, they just convince people that is what they need rather than telling them the truth.

What has Obama done to increase human rights and reduce narrow mindedness?

Right to a good health.

Costs society a bit though. But it's right to proper health care, where today you may not get anything. But Obama has been frustrated a lot by the Reps in the senate on a lot of things. Guantanamo is a Rep thing. Privacy laws of today (lack there of)? Reps again...

Today, I know exactly what I will get, tomorrow I only know that I'll have even less money to pay my bills with. I have no health insurance and I'm still against Obamacare.

Guantanamo is a Rep thing.
Apparently not, Obama didn't close it. He doesn't need Congressional approval. Ron Paul would close it before Obama had even walked out of the front door of the White House.

Privacy laws of today (lack there of)? Reps again...
And Obama is making them worse. So again, how is this all the Republicans' fault?

I will agree that the way it is implemented may not be the most freeish of ways, certainly. It could have been handled differently, through communal health care contribution taxes or whatever (but taxes would be opposed too...).

Taxes aren't exactly free to pick either, but if you consider the cost required for medical care in general, it's not like you can expect people to only pay for their own medicines and surgeries. It'd be WAY too expensive.

And I'm not talking about boobjobs, obviously. Talking about life-saving and first aid operations alone.

Regarding Guantanamo, what's the reason he didn't close it again?

http://dreadnaught.wordpress.com/200...easy-to-close/

A legal problem created by the Reps... And of course domestic politics:

Administration officials lay blame for the failed initiative on Congress, including Democrats who deserted the president, sometimes in droves. The debate, they said, became suffused with fear — fear that transferring detainees to American soil would create a genuine security threat, fear that closing Guantanamo would be electoral suicide. Some Democratic lawmakers pleaded with the White House not to press too hard, according to administration officials.
It should never have existed in the first place.

If he truly wanted to close it, it would be closed. It only exists by executive order.

I thought that was true. Look up how many people, of the 169 current people, at Guantanamo that are approved for release and the complications of where to send them. It's an interesting political problem. If Ron Paul wanted to help he could. He's in a position to make recommendations.

What a f'ing joke.
Acutally providing contraceptives saves insurers money from having to pay out money to go through pregnancy, STD's, etc. Insurers WANT to give out contraceptives for free.

Actually this a common misconception among men. I didn't know much about birth control either until I heard this debate come up. After talking to my mother and researching I found out birth control (the pill) is surprisingly more used for medical reasons and preventative measures (58%). It's also used for lighter periods and less problems related to PMS. There's an obvious reason why 99% of women depend on it in the US. It's something you should take time researching. It's not something we, as men, really have to think about.

Didn't this graph hit you as kind of odd? The scale along the Y is not proportional to the scale on the right. We all know Bill Clinton was amazing.
