Social Issues

General philosophy: Hates Jesus

Abortion: I support the continued availability of these services, including so-called "partial-birth" abortion.

Separation of Church and State: Strongly support. Pray in church if you must, but don't shove your beliefs on others via the government.

Marriage: I support same-sex marriage. I wouldn't have a problem with government getting out of "marriage" and granting everyone civil unions, either.

Affirmative Action: Support class-based AA for college admissions.

Gun Control: Oppose, with obvious exceptions (RPGs, etc.).

Death Penalty: Oppose; there are too many innocent people on death row for me to comfortably support state-sponsored murder.

Censorship: No restrictions on radio or television content. It would also be nice if the MPAA and ESRB would fade away (I'm aware that these aren't government agencies).

Flag burning: Don't ban it, especially not with a constitutional amendment. Doesn't Congress have more important things to do?

Hate crimes: Oppose.

Hate speech: Oppose censorship.

Smoking: Don't ban public smoking, as disgusting as it is.

Alcohol consumption: Lower drinking age to 18.

Euthanasia: Keep it legal; if a person wants to take their own life, it's their business.

Drugs: Legalize everything, regulate, and tax.

Gambling: Legalize everywhere.

Prostitution: Legalize everywhere.

Embryonic Stem Cell Research: Strongly, strongly support.

Immigration: Make future immigration easier; grant amnesty to undocumented workers currently in the US.

Economic Issues

General Philosophy: Communist!!!1

Taxes: Tax the hell out of the top 1 percent. Also oppose regressive sales taxes.

Unions: Strongly support the right to unionize.

Free trade: Oppose NAFTA.

Spending: Oppose corporate subsidies, cut military spending, increase social spending and foreign aid.

Social Security: Keep as is.

Workers' Rights: Workplace safety rules = good.

Space Program: Support (knowledge- even impractical knowledge- is always valuable), but I oppose the ridiculously expensive manned Mars landing that our President has proposed.

Welfare: Increase spending.

Healthcare: Support universal healthcare.

Education: Oppose vouchers, increase spending on public ed, make it easier for the poor to attend college.

Foreign Issues

General Philosophy: Blame America first

Democracy and Trade: Good things. Tongue

Anti (fill in the blank) Treaty: The fewer weapons humans can use to slaughter each other with, the better.

United Nations: Strongly support.

Iraq: Disastrous illegal war; withdraw all US troops by the end of 2007.

Israel: Cut off all military aid; work toward closer relationships with the Arab states.

Wait, you oppose except for rocket-propelled grenades? Tongue

Think about it. I oppose gun control, except in the case of heavy weaponry.
