Badnarik for President

So here I am working up the latest issue of the Utah Freedom Activist Newsletter when I decided to take a break and have a look-see at my current pile of email-to-be-read (aka the "Inbox of Doom").

I see the latest press release from George Getz, the Libertarian Party's national news guy. He's talking about television ads for Michael Badnarik's campaign that are now airing on Fox--concentrating on their news hour.


That rocks! These ads are targeting Republicans who, while being true conservatives, still think the Republican Party is their only choice this coming election...despite Bush's obvious non-conservative (or should I say NEO-conservative) actions and leanings.

These commercials aren't all that bad and probably do appeal to those conservative-types. I'm not big on them, but I prefer the more "Hellfire and Brimstone" kind of approach that advocates getting out the guns and showing them who's boss. Obviously I have red hair and am of Celtic decent, or I'd be more passive. ;)

Anyway, you can watch the ads here:

More Republicans Satisfied With Their Sex Lives Than Democrats...

'Primetime Live' Poll: More Republicans Satisfied With Sex Lives Than Democrats

New 'Primetime Live' Sex Survey Reveals That More Republicans (56%) Are Very Satisfied With Their Sex Lives Than Democrats (47%)

Oct. 18, 2004 — American Sex Lives 2004, a new "Primetime Live" sex poll conducted in conjunction with the ABC News Polling Unit, is among the most comprehensive surveys of its kind in decades and establishes a new, detailed picture of sex attitudes and behavior in America today.

The full results of this wide-ranging sex poll will be presented during a live, hourlong "Primetime Live" event airing Thursday, Oct. 21 (10-11 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network.

* 'Primetime Live' Poll: More Republicans Satisfied With Sex Lives Than Democrats
* Injured Iraq Vets Come Home to Poverty
* That Was the Week That Was: Oct. 14, 2004

The "Primetime Live" sex poll answers many provocative questions that we have all wondered about, but have never dared to ask, including: how many Americans describe themselves as sexually "traditional" or "adventurous"; how often are Americans having sex; what are the sex habits of cheaters; and who is cheating with their co-worker and who is cheating in the workplace.

The poll analysis includes a breakdown by many subgroups, including region, age and even political party affiliation, which is the topic of results released today:

Of those involved in a committed relationship, who is very satisfied with their relationship?
Republicans — 87 percent; Democrats — 76 percent

Who is very satisfied with their sex life?
Republicans — 56 percent; Democrats — 47 percent

The poll analysis also reveals who has worn something sexy to enhance their sex life:
Republicans — 72 percent; Democrats — 62 percent

When asked whether they had ever faked an orgasm, more Democrats (33 percent) than Republicans (26 percent) said they had.

Among the factors that impact the survey results is that more men identify themselves as Republicans and men are more likely to say they are sexually satisfied and enjoy sex "a great deal." Also, Democrats are more likely to be women; and the poll results show that women are more likely to fake orgasms.

The American Sex Lives 2004 survey was conducted by telephone August 2-9, 2004, among a random, anonymous, national sample of adults 18-99 years old. The results have a 2.5-point error margin for all respondents; as in any poll, sampling error is higher for subgroups.
