Social Issues

Abortion: I'm staunchly pro-life, but support exceptions when the mother's life is in danger.
Separation of church and state: Those words appear nowhere in the Constitution. I support freedom OF religion and not freedom FROM religion.
Gay marriage: Marriage should be between a man and a woman. I support civil unions and domestic partnerships, as well as gay adoption rights.
Affirmative action: Good intentions, but is just a less ugly form of discrimination.
Hate crimes: I honestly don't know much about this issue, but from what I do know I think the one of the government's few duties is to protect its citizens from violence, foreign or internal.
Gun control: Make the 2nd Amendment permanent.
Death penalty: Support it. Some crimes are so vile and ugly that the death penalty is justifiable in those cases.
Flag burning: I strongly oppose it personally, but whether or not it's a 1st Amendment right is questionable.
Euthanasia: I have no idea.
Prostitution: Devalues our society.
Immigration: I support legal immigration 100%. For illegal immigration: build a wall and let's call it a day.

Economic Issues

Taxes: Implement the FairTax ASAP. We will finally hear an end to tax codes that bias those at the top.
Trade: I believe free trade grows our economy.
Spending: Gov't. should spend only what is absolutely necessary. Cut spending for welfare (leads into next issue).
Welfare: If it must exist, make it more efficient. Government's job is not to provide for its citizens, but to protect its citizens.
Education: Support universal education, but I also believe that school choice should be paramount. Support getting rid of Dept. of Education.
Regulations: Don't regulate excessively, but make sure that a Madoff scandal doesn't happen again.

Foreign Policy

Military Involvement:
When we are 150% certain we are going to be attack, then attack first (not near-certainty or very likely). Peace through strength.
United Nations: Definite anti-American bias, but I also believe UN has done some good throughout the past 60 years (I'll give you some examples when I think of them).
Israel: I support Israel 1000%.
