Do you trust them?

Your politicians (senator, rep, pres etc) your doctors? Do you believe more times than not they are looking out for your best interest? Or do you do your own research?

  • I dont trust politicians ever lol. Sorry but most of them are out for themselves so I do my own research. As for doctors I research doctors before I see them. If I dont feel comfortable with them and feel like I have to do my own research then I get a new dr.

  • I trust my doctors and believe they are looking out for me based on the quality of care I have received from them. I have a chronic illness and they are always very good about making sure I have the proper tests, treatment and medicines that I need. They also take my concerns seriously. It is not unusual for me to spend up to 30 minutes during an exam with my primary care physician. She always runs late because she spends so much time talking to her patients...I am patient because I know she will give me the same quality time listening to me and my concerns. My rheumatologist is also very caring and concerned about my well-being. He takes my pain seriously and isn't shy about ordering tests I may need. My politicians...eh...not so much trust there but then again, I don't know them like I do my docs.

  • I don't trust most politicians main reason I would not want National Health Care. I am for smaller Government like our founding fathers wanted. I do trust my doctor but he has earned that over time. I do my own research and get second opinions when needed. I am not one to blindly follow or believe anyone.

  • i trust my doctor b/c he is a good person. i wont trust just any doctor. i do my research & talk it over w/ my dr. i trust him b/c he's proven to be trustworthy & he's been right so far.

    i rarely, if ever, trust politicians. its in their job description to lie :D

  • I trust my instincts, constant critical self~education and curiosity over politics and their playa game antics.

  • I trust my doctor. We were once "colleagues" of sorts at the same facility. I saw how he handled his patients there and I trust him with my health. He trusts me as his patient as well because he knows I am well informed and have access to good information and will discuss any concerns I have with him rather than just following any old recommendation blindly. I do not trust politicians of any sort. I believe there is a lot of Sociopathy involved in any individual who can make it that far to the top. I hope that the decisions they make in their own best interest will also end up benefiting our communities and my family.  I ALWAYS do my own research on anything I can.  With the internet and our access to information in general, there's rarely an instance where one shouldn't be able to make an informed decision on something.
