So Here We Have It, The Ultimate Divide...

I think with what we've seen of Benry, Widmore is the lesser of the two evils. But that's just me.

I trust DHARMA....they make good facilities and products. DHARMA's my Brandname of choice.

I'd trust Ben because I believe I'd be on the VIP list and sippin' Pina Coladas at the temple by this time!  Seriously, I'd probably not trust either, but if forced to choose, Ben's my guy.

Ben is a fanatic. He may have good motives, but his means are questionable. He also is a notorious liar.

Widmore appears to want to exploit the island, at least according to Ben (who is a notorious liar). He is not a very cuddly, likeable fellow at any rate.

I don't trust either. Ben may be doing what he is doing for altruistic reasons, but I'm pretty sure his reasons are quite selfish.

I refuse to answer based on the usage of "Benry"

Yeah, I'm THAT guy.

Ben is a certifiable nut with his own agenda...and Widmore (from what little we seem to know about the guy) just seems downright scary. I don't know why, but Widmore reminds me of Grady the original caretaker from the movie, The Shining.

Welcome, KoKoNut!
I love your signature line!  Dismount!  Maybe we'll get to see the killer bunny when they get to the Orchid station, and Locke will save the day when he pulls out the Holy Hand Grenade!

No, but he had a collection of bones around his cave that would put the purge pit to shame!

I think that both ben and widmore are not trustworthy. They both have shown their hands as you will. Ben has shown that he is a good manipulator and widmore has shown that he is the guy who has all the money and can get away with anything. In a life or death situation, i would have to go with ben just because I think Michael emerson is a better actor ;D

I decided to trust Widmore.  The apple doesn't fall far from the tree and Penny seems decent.  Maybe Daddy Widmore is ok, too.

I trust Jack, Locke and Sayid to be the good guys.

I trust Widmore to be a reformer.

I don't trust Ben one bit.  He's a liar and a creep.

High five for that!  At least they still believe in things like love and free will.
