Some interesting polls in 2011 by Costco:
Should Internet openness be assured by regulation?
Does Wikileaks serve the best interest of the United States?
Is offshore oil drilling in the best interest of the United States?
Is College worth it?
Should literary classics be sanitized?
Should you seek medical advice online?
Are biofuels actually a good idea?
Should teacher layoffs be based on seniority?
Ten years after 9/11, is America safer?
Should paid sick leave be mandatory?
Should the mortgage interest deduction be phased out?
Is it OK to thank people by email?
I found of he number surprising and some not - mostly because I would expect Costco members to be more on the conservative side of the line ...
When I think of Costco I think of business owners/managers and preppers - no most aren't crazies, they just think differently then others ... They will leave their children a legacy of food and precious metals.
Things like looking up medical advice online shocked me - after all you don't really know the credentials of the person your getting it from... Just because they have an MD doesn't mean they weren't the last in their class (every class has them too)...
The biofuel question ... I guess I would have thought they would have been more big oil instead of putting their vote behind an industry where we really don't know the effects yet ... I mean we all know they say it's environmentally friendly and it would be cheaper but do we really know this? I mean look at the issues they are finding with the CFL bulbs, it wasn't until after they passed the regulations phasing out the regular incandescent that they found the mercury which makes the CFL work was dangerous to the environment!
Other things like the sanitizing of books or the mortgage interest deduction didn't surprise me at all ... As I would expect that most members would own a home and/or stand by the US Constitution ...
