That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

-Legalizing Drugs: Pro, making drugs illegal is just like when they make fireworks illegal, it doesn't make people stop buying them it just makes it harder for responsible users to get them.

What Political Party or Affiliation? : Registered Republican

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : Evangelical Christian

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: Passionately against.  I believe life begins at conception.  It should be protected.  Adoption has brought joy to many lives for couples that cannot have children.  I know because my wife and I had to adopt.  Iím sure glad my son wasnít aborted.

- Gay Marriage: Married by definition of the legal system? Fine, because of all the special benefits that canít be obtained otherwise.  I just wish there could be a distinction between the legal definition of marriage and the long standing original definition which is a union between a man and a woman before God where two become one flesh.

- Health care:  As someone who has worked in state and federal government for 10 years, PLEASE!  Donít let the government screw up a system that is not nearly as bad as many people say.  The US cannot afford to pay for health care every citizen.

- Gun control:  I sure donít want my neighbors target shooting with oozes in their back yard.  There are too many dumb asses out there to not have gun control.

- Illegal Immigration:  Enforce the law.  Illegal means Illegal.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general):  Iím glad Iraq is a freer nation and Sadam Hussen is gone/Iím glad the Taliban is not in charge anymore and Ben Laden is dead/War is necessary while evil still exists.

- Separation of Church and State:  A good thing.  However, our nation WAS built upon Judeo-Christian values.  But, no church should be influencing legislation and no government branch should be interfering with a churchís right to their beliefs.

- Climate Change/Global Warming:   I donít buy into the Al Gore hype.

- The UN:  Useless bunch of political pushovers.

- Restrictions on curses on television:  Censorship is bad.  Parental controls are good.

- Corporate welfare: Iím not even sure what this means.

- Private Charity: The more private charities fail, the bigger government gets.  More private charities please!  And in case anyone was wondering, I do my financial share to back this up.  I believe strongly in it.

- Public Welfare:  EPIC FAIL!!!  Looks good on paper but is badly abused and manipulated.

- Death Penalty:  As a Christian Iím so on the fence with this one.  I lean more to the against side because there are no transgressions that cannot be forgiven.  Too many times people want revenge and just like with abortion, who are we to decide who lives and dies.

- Stem cell research:  Great as long as weíre not taking the life of a fetus that could grow up to cure cancer one day or even cure spinal cord injuries.   There are usable stem cells in other tissues.  It doesnít have to be a fetus.

- Guantanamo Bay:  I donít really have an opinion about this.
When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep just like my grandfather, and not like the screaming passengers in his car!

What Political Party or Affiliation? : Not belonging to any, but my views are mostly social-liberal.

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : I believe that there is a reason for everything, which means something/someone created the world and there is something after death. The idea of everything existing without a reason makes no sense to me. Not affiliated with any particular religion though.

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: Only in extreme situations (rape, significant danger for health, etc.). Otherwise strictly against, for purely moral rather than religious reasons.

- Gay Marriage: I don't see a single reason why it shouldn't be allowed. They have enough difficulties as it is.

- Health care: Both public and private most preferably. If you've got money, you choose what you like, but if you don't, you aren't left without help. Also, this means lots of competition which is always good.

- Gun control: Should be given to a person only after thorough tests, and preferably only if they have a good reason.

- Illegal Immigration: If they don't harm anyone and try to do well, leave them be and help become legal. If they're causing trouble, get out.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general):
Iraq and Afghanistan - both seem like a lose-lose situation. Stay there - more terrorist attacks and more deaths because "they fight the invaders". Leave - the fanatics will probably take over (or more terrorist attacks and deaths because "they fight the puppet government").

War in general - the most terrible thing possible, but as much as I am an idealist, sometimes there is no choice. Sometimes it's the lesser evil (which is still a great evil in this case) to letting a complete madman roam free and probably lead to a greater war in the future.

- Seperation of Church and State: As much as possible. Religion should be an entirely personal thing. A church abusing their influence to manipulate people into voting for someone (I live in a country which is a very good example of this) is worse than propaganda.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: Unsure what to think about it.

- The UN: The idea is very good, but it's not effective enough.

- Restrictions on curses on television: Against. Instead of trying to prevent children from having any contact with anything that's "wrong", teach them to be responsible and make their own decisions. It won't help much if at home you're trying to enforce it, and among friends they'll speak the way they like anyway. And as for adults... of course I believe they always speak in perfectly clean language, right... Let's not be hypocrites.

- Corporate welfare: Don't really like the idea.

- Private Charity: As long as they spend the money on what they say they do, it's a great thing.

- Public Welfare: Yes, but it should really be organised in a clever way to prevent it from being abused. However, people who are simply having trouble deserve it. More contrasts is never a good thing.

- Death Penalty: Only if there was a way to have an absolute, 101% certainty that the person found guilty really is guilty. However, there is no such way - and that's why I'm strictly against. I do believe there are crimes which deserve it, but the possibility of an innocent person being claimed guilty is what makes me find it unacceptable (I don't care what's the percentage, one mistake is enough). Anyone directly involved in giving a wrong death sentence should face a trial for murder.

- Stem cell research: Unsure.

- Guantanamo Bay: It's only another excuse for the terrorists, and something that simply shouldn't be done by an apparently democratic government. I don't know why it still hasn't been shut down.

What Political Party or Affiliation? : Registered Republican, conservative viewpoints

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : Christianity

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: Against per se, but in the case of rape or incest I am sympathetic but I still feel that adoption is a better alternative since the child had no say in it's creation methods.

- Gay Marriage: Dont care one way or the other tbqh

- Health care: Private sector is best but with some reasonable, sensible laws in place to prevent insurance companies from screwing over their clients on procedures that are health realted issues.  Sociualized medicine is an absolute NO! Obamacare = FAIL, period, paragraph, end of story.

- Gun control: A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. (Get the idea I am pro gun ownership? LOL)

- Illegal Immigration: I am 100% AGAINST illegal immigration.  I am 1000% FOR  LEGAL immigration.   There is a huge difference.  If the laws of the land state that to immigrate to a given country, you must follow X, Y, Z protocols and processes, then THAT is what you need to do.  Enter the country legally and apply for citizenship, get a job, learn the language, pay your taxes, and be a productive member of society.   If you enter a country illegally, don't pay taxes, then expect the citizens of that country to start speaking YOUR language because you can't be assed to learn the language because it infringes upon your cultural rights to be forced to learn the official language of that country, then demand that you have a RIGHT to the healtcare system and welfare system of that country... then in my opinion you need to GET THE FUCK OUT.  Illegal means illegal.  Period.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general):  I am all for helping our nations allies and for stopping the spread of terrorism through whatever means are neccessary but I think that we (America) have been overseas in the middle east far too long and have not reaped ANY benefit from being there or the gratitude of the countries we have saved (I might be mistaken, but we still pay PREMIUM price per barrel of oil from Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, I might be wrong as I havent been able to find any material that states otherwise).  We need to bring our men and women home and protect our own interests and secure our borders IMHO.

- Seperation of Church and State: Well by the definition of what our forefathers were referring to was the prevention of the government from controlling what churches say/preach/educate.  For this I am most certainly in agreement.  What I DISAGREE with is the notion that folks who do not believe in God (which it is 100% their right to do and I support and encourage) or their God is different from my God, try to impose their beliefs upon the history of our country. Like it or not America was founded upon Judeo/Christian principles and beliefs and the current trend to remove any reference to God from currency, federal buildings, state buildings, monuments that contain christian sybology or imagry is NOT what was meant by the seperation of church and state.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: Not really sure, there is compelling evidence that the earth has historically gone through major climate shifts over the last undred thousand years, long before we started pumping the atmosphere full of CFC's

- The UN: Useless.

- Restrictions on curses on television: as in you can't say SHIT, FUCK, COCK, CUNT, Etc on primetime TV?  Personally I am for that.  My kids started cussing early enough in life as it was....   Don't think we need purple dinosaurs singing "I Fuck you, you fuck me, we're a fucking family...."

- Corporate welfare: WTF is corporate Welfare?

- Private Charity: I think private charities are great, I give to them when I can.  They are proof that as human beings we try to take care of the less fortunate when we can.

- Public Welfare:  Needs a SERIOUS overhaul.  I think welfare as a SAFETY NET is fine.  It should be a mechanism to help people while they try to find jobs so they can support themselves and be a productive member of society.  It should NOT be something that people live off of.

- Death Penalty: For

- Stem cell research: In so far as it doesnt utilize aborted fetus tissue, I am for it.

- Guantanamo Bay: Pro

What Political Party or Affiliation? : N/A. Anarcho-Capitalist

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : None

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: Both Pro-Choice and Pro-Life. This is arguably the most complex political issue there is. There is no easy answer. I believe Evictionism is the only sensible proposed solution. It is not a compromise. It eliminates emotion and takes a logical and principled approach to satisfy both sides of the argument. It's still not perfect, but is probably the best approach to take.

- Gay Marriage: Marriage should not be recognized on the State level. It should be a private social contract. Problem resolved.

- Health care: Private

- Gun control: Against

- Illegal Immigration: "Legality" is an arbitrary and artificial distinction made by man. Country borders are irrational

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general): Anti-War

- Seperation of Church and State: Non-sensical question. The State is a secular religion.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: Probably true, but will be made much worse by political activism attempting alleviate it.

- The UN: Destructive and unnecessary.

- Restrictions on curses on television: Against regulation

- Corporate welfare: Opposed

- Private Charity: Redundant, charity is private by definition. I am for it.

- Public Welfare: Opposed

- Death Penalty: Opposed

- Stem cell research: For

- Guantanamo Bay: Opposed

What Political Party or Affiliation? :  Absolutely 100% Apolitical. 

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? :  I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses.

What is your stance on:  Many of the following issues are political in nature.  In these instances, I take no sides.  I am in the roll of an ambassador.   I am a representative of a government (God's Kingdom) that is no part of this world.   As such, I do not get involved in either side of "local disputes".  I am here to represent God's Kingdom, and educate anyone who is interested and/or curious as to what the regulations of that government are. 

- Abortion: The Bible teaches that life begins at conception, and that the taking of any innocent life is murder.  How any earthly government chooses to regulate the practice is up to them.  I teach people what God's view on the matter is.  What people choose to do with that information is up to them.

- Gay Marriage:  This is a strictly political issue.  I am not personally for or against the political practice of recognizing gay marriage.  The government I represent does not recognize it...but I have no opinion on what other governments choose to do. 

- Health care:  A personal issue.  I do believe that you should take advantage of whatever you can to take care of your health and life.  I believe God's Kingdom will soon put an end to *all* health concerns. 

- Gun control:  Again...strictly a political issue.  I have no opinion.

- Illegal Immigration:  Same...

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general):  This falls under the category of "local disputes".   God's Kingdom will one day put an end to all war forever.  I will never, in any way shape or form, involve myself in the disputes between the governments of this world.

- Seperation of Church and State:  Since God's Kingdom is no part of this world, God's people should have no involvement in politics of any kind.

- Climate Change/Global Warming:  I do believe that man is currently ruining the earth.  I believe every person should do everything they can to respect the planet, but I also believe that man's ruination of the earth will not be stopped until God himself intervenes....and he will step in before we reach the point of no return.

- The UN: Represents Man's attempt to govern themselves...something God never intended for us to do. 

- Restrictions on curses on television: A personal matter.  If you don't like it, turn it off...and teach your children to do the same.

- Corporate welfare:  A political issue.  I have no opinion.

- Private Charity: A personal matter...everyone should chose what they will and won't support.  I do think that people should be educated in exactly where their money is going.

- Public Welfare: A political issue.  I have no opinion.  I do believe that God's Kingdom will put an end to any need for such things.

- Death Penalty:  A political issue.  I have no opinion. I do believe that only God has *absolute* insight into the details of any matter...and that it has become increasingly difficult for any person to know all the details of any situation.   I do believe that murder is the taking of an innocent life, and that execution is the taking of a guilty life, and that the two are different.   Who is guilty and who is innocent?  Only God can decide that. 

- Stem cell research: Don't know enough about it to offer an opinion...but won't get involved in the political decisions one way or the other.

- Guantanamo Bay:  Again, this is a dispute of a political nature.  God's Kingdom will do away with all such "camps", "prisons" etc..etc.  So in the near future, it will simply be a non-factor.


I welcome any and all *respectful* challenges/questions from *any* point of view through PM.

What Political Party or Affiliation? : Pub

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : It's in my name.

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: One of the few issues that don't really affect me. But, I'm against it.

- Gay Marriage: I don't see why the rights should be denied to gays/lesbians that I can get. I may not condone what they do, but I certainly can't condemn it, either.

- Health care:  Either way I get boned, right?

- Gun control:  Most guns used in crime are obtained illegally anyway.

- Illegal Immigration:  Eh, what can be done about it? Personally, I guess they're here illegally, so ship 'em home. But, it's not that easy.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general):  War is an unfortunate necessity. Also, I believe there will always be war. It's the sinful nature of man.

- Seperation of Church and State:  Government shouldn't mandate/restrict any religion.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: Jury's out for me.

- The UN: Until other countries start stepping up, it's really the USA and Friends.

- Restrictions on curses on television:  While I don't have kids, fucking go for it.

- Corporate welfare: Don't know enough to make a belief claim about it.

- Private Charity: Sure.

- Public Welfare: Sure.

- Death Penalty: I'm more cruel. Let 'em rot alone. (Isn't life in prison without parole just a death sentence anyway?)

- Stem cell research: No fetus.

- Guantanamo Bay: Keep that baby open.

What Political Party or Affiliation? : Middle Left (way on the left of US Democrats)

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? Lack thereof

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: Women should be granted the right to choose.

- Gay Marriage: Pro. Why should a love bond between two people be disregarded only because it joins two of the same sex? Everything that joins people people rather than dividing them should be pursued.

- Health care:  Should be universal, provided by the state. There is no state without citizen, their life should be its PRIMARY concern. Everybody's life, with no distinction.

- Gun control:  The should be limited. A man should be free to purchase a handgun (automatic guns are too dangerous, they IMO need not to be handed by anyone outside the military - as it happens in my country), but after a careful training and thorough psychological analisys.

- Illegal Immigration:  Tough question. I should not provide a definitive stance on this as I don't have it yet.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general):  No war is to be sought after. Ever. That's as simple as it gets. As simple as thinking, as simple as not pulling the trigger of a gun. It can be done if it wants to be done.

- Seperation of Church and State:  Keep the church out of the state. Italy knows something of intrusive priests, cardinals and holy bankers.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: The Earth is warming, and we are a cause of it. Not the only one, though. That being said, our future on the Earth depends on our choices. Now more than ever.

- The UN: Is it really the United Nations? Or is it something else? A overnational governmnet is auspicable, as the history of the human kind should evolve towards unity and be focused on tearing down the walls between us.

- Restrictions on curses on television:  Some degree of it. On the public television, where a service is being given from the state, total restriction.

- Corporate welfare: Don't know enough to make a belief claim about it.

- Private Charity: Should be encouraged

- Public Welfare: Should be the first thing a statesman thinks to when waking up.

- Death Penalty: To die, to sleep. Let criminals stay awake and aware of what they've done for all their life. Besides this, criminals are human after all.

- Stem cell research: All for it.

- Guantanamo Bay: Tear down the facility and cover the ruins with salt.

What Political Party or Affiliation? : Situationism / Anarchism

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : Atheist.

"I am wiser than this man; it is likely that neither of us knows anything worthwhile, but he thinks he knows something when he does not, whereas when I do not know, neither do I think I know; so I am likely to be wiser than he to this small extent, that I do not think I know what I do not know"
- Plato / Socrates - Apology
 
What is your stance on:

- Abortion: Pro-choice. World's got a massive over-population problem.

- Gay Marriage: If straight people can get married, then gay people should be allowed to too.

- Health care: I live in the UK, where it's always been free for me. I am kinda skeptical about those who receive treatment worth £millions as one individual though, to keep them just-about alive with a low quality of life, when there's so many people worldwide without access to a decent level of basic healthcare - it's kinda non-utilitarian.

- Gun control: I don't really see a reason to own a gun unless you're a farmer or something. (And, some cops/military, if we really have to have those 2 things to begin with)

- Illegal Immigration: Tough one to answer. A lot of illegal immigrants are probably fleeing a place with a pretty shitty quality of life. However, it's also hard for the country they go to to take them in and support them at the expense of those who are there more legally.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general): Very anti-war. Ought to be a total last-resort used to free people from harm. Instead, it's usually a means to an end for the West to get better control of natural resources.

- Seperation of Church and State: Should be totally separate.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: It's real, kids. We need to do something.

- The UN: Basically good, but flawed.

- Restrictions on curses on television: lol, go away Tipper Gore. Have some Zappa on Crossfire: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ISil7IHzxc

- Corporate welfare: Hm, don't mind agricultural subsidies in some circumstances, I guess, but not at all for govts rescuing big businesses (and banks) when they fuck-up.

- Private Charity: Mostly good, but flawed, and probably needs more regulation to stop people being auto-fellating dickheads who don't actually help those they claim to help.

- Public Welfare: Is that the dole in the UK? Yeah, for, under our present system anyway. I also don't think that people ought to be hounded to find work if they don't want to work, as long as they are happy to live a very poor lifestyle on meager state handouts. The right-to-work movement tends to overshadow any semblance of a right-not-to-work movement.

- Death Penalty: Totally against. Watch the film Dancer in the Dark and then see if you still like the DP. (Spoiler - final scene - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yu5f_T2wcRI )

- Stem cell research: Go for it.

- Guantanamo Bay: Turf out the prisoners and plant some trees.

What Political Party or Affiliation? : closest to the Green Party, not a member though

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : Jewish

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: undecided

- Gay Marriage: pro

- Health care: US healthcare should be modeled along the lines of European countries/Canada

- Gun control: pro but not to the extent of banning all guns outright

- Illegal Immigration: in favor of a path to citizenship

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general): BOOOOOOOO!!!!! (I think that sums it up pretty nicely).

- Seperation of Church and State: pro, not sure what to say about issues like God in the pledge/currency as that's deeply ingrained in American culture

- Climate Change/Global Warming: desperately needs to be solved, the world will probably have to abandon capitalism to do it though

- The UN: many flaws but still a very worthwhile endeavor/ideal

- Restrictions on curses on television: anti

- Corporate welfare: Only if there is a potential for significant numbers of lost jobs and if the exec. board agrees to substantial pay cuts. At the same time, I think we should have bailed out Main Street in 2008 rather than the big banks.

- Private Charity: pro but not nearly as important as welfare

- Public Welfare: we need WAY more of it

- Death Penalty: anti

- Stem cell research: not an issue anymore given research into adult stem cells

- Guantanamo Bay: close it, sell the land back to Cuba

Hi guys! :)

What Political Party or Affiliation? : Democrat

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : Atheist

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: The system in place now (illegal 3rd trimester) is fine.

- Gay Marriage: Completely for. EDIT: To be more precise, I would actually prefer it if the government ceased recognizing "marriage" at all. That would be my first choice: making marriage a strictly religious ceremony. That's not going to happen, though, so we might as well have marriage equality.

- Health care: It's a right.

- Gun control: Completely for.

- Illegal Immigration: Making legal immigration easier will patch this problem up. I'm not for a national language or anything.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general): We should avoid military intervention as much as possible, but I do believe that war is occasionally necessary.

- Seperation of Church and State: Completely for. To me, this means that we shouldn't be promoting any single religion in schools, courthouses, and other public institutions. I also believe that taxpayer money should not support any religious nonprofit and that religious organizations should not be tax-exempt. However, I am not against the expression of religion in public; e.g., students are free to pray in school, but faculty cannot condone or organize this type of activity.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: Combating climate change by way of regulating pollution and finding alternative energies should be one of our top priorities.

- The UN: The UN as it is now is not perfect, but I am completely for countries working together in a formal setting.

- Restrictions on curses on television: I don't have a very strong opinion on the subject. I could go either way, honestly. Our current system is fine.

- Corporate welfare: Generally, against. I could imagine some exceptions, so this is to be looked at on a case-by-case basis. However, any taxpayer money that is provided to private corporations should be extremely closely monitored.

- Private Charity: For. However, I do think complete financial transparency should be mandated.

- Public Welfare: Immensely important.

- Death Penalty: There are certain cases where rehabilitation would be quite dangerous or risky. In these cases the death penalty is preferable.

- Stem cell research: Completely for.

Version 1.1:

What Political Party or Affiliation? : Nonaligned. On the left. A bit green.

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : An agnostic.

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: Should be allowed, but only for good reasons, like if the pregnancy has began of a rape or an incest or it might end up lethal for the mother/child.

- Gay Marriage: Yes please right now. If two adults love each other, I think it's just fine, regardless of their sexes. I'm also pro-gay adoption, I see no reasons why homosexuals would be worse parents than heteros.

- Health care: Is meant for everybody.

- Gun control: "Guns don't kill people, death kills people." True, but I still stand up for strict gun laws. Every massacre is too much.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general): War sucks. Tons of people die because of some dickhead leaders. Instead of nation vs. nation wars, the guys who started it should just have a cage match and the one who comes out alive wins. Much less blood, pain and suffering.

Civil wars are more complicate. The both sides on Syria have done atrocities, and as much as I want to see al-Assad behind bars for good, the control might be taken over by fanatic Muslims, which is a bad option.

The hunt for al-Qaida has also two sides. It causes collateral damage, but it might save lives of thousands.

- Seperation of Church and State: In Finland the Lutheran church is a part of the state. I think it's against the freedom of belief.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: Global warming is natural. We just happen to accelerate it.

- The UN: At the moment as useful as headless hammer. The countries with veto rights in Security Counsil have too different interests to agree on anything important.

- Restrictions on curses on television: You must be kidding. What is so bad about cursing? If I write f*ck, everyone older than eight years know the letter behind *. Actually I believe the children should not be forbid to curse. Now when it's some sort of taboo, they just think it's fun. Children like to do forbidden things.

- Private Charity: What am I to tell people what to do with their money? If it's for a good purpose, it's alright.

- Public Welfare: It's good that the state takes care of those who might not be able to do it themselves. But I don't think there should be welfare traps. Working should always be more profitable than living on state's expense. Probably the only issue I agree with the Finnish right-wing.

- Death Penalty: I think it's inhumane and barbaric.

- Stem cell research: The new technology, which allows to revert specialised cells back into stem cells, is fine.

- Cannabis: Yes, it might be less dangerous than alcohol or tobacco. No, I don't think it should be legalized. If alcohol was discovered now, it certainly wouldn't be legal. Cannabis and marijuana have some undeniable negative effects on health.

- Euthanasia: If a person has incurable disease and would go through a slow, painful death, I think it is acceptable.

What Political Party or Affiliation? :  Registered Democrat

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : None but I believe in God as I understand Him

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: For subsidization

- Gay Marriage: For equality

- Health care: For single-payer system

- Gun control: Agree with the current system

- Illegal Immigration: For a path to citizenship

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general): Against all wars that are not in clear self-defense

- Separation of Church and State: For the First Amendment. Also for the less-discussed Separation of Church and God.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: This is not a political issue but a matter of scientific consensus.

- The UN: For increased international cooperation except in most military matters, because offensive war is wrong, whether it's one person doing it or half the world.

- Restrictions on curses on television: Seems reasonable to have a watershed

- Corporate welfare: Loaded terminology. Grants, and some tax breaks, for small businesses as well as things like R&D (regardless of the company's size) make sense, but there is no reason to let a company pay virtually no taxes.

- Private Charity: It's good but there are always fad charities that consistently receive exponentially higher amounts of donations than other equally (or more) important charities; thus, government funding is also necessary.

- Public Welfare: I believe in helping other people out when they need it, and think it's one of the things that makes a country great.

- Death Penalty: Against.

- Stem cell research: Agree with federal funding

- Guantanamo Bay: A distraction from the many harsher prisons the U.S. operates throughout the world in undisclosed locations

First of all, let me state that I'm a Non-US citizen and that I'm only 'somewhat' following the political issues in the US.

What Political Party or Affiliation? : None, but I'm somewhere on the left of the spectrum.

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : None, but you might call me a 'floater' Like in: I dont'believe in a deity, but I think there's 'something' out there.

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: for it in necesary cases.

- Gay Marriage: all for it.

- Health care: for it. but I think you should contribute yourself. 

- Gun control: for control.

- Illegal Immigration:it's a problem, but let's be humane about it.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general): a never ending story, really.

- Seperation of Church and State: YES. Definetely!

- Climate Change/Global Warming: well, let's not panic. stop airpolution, etc.

- The UN:Yeah. It's there...

- Restrictions on curses on television: Well, again, let's be a little civil about it. No nudity/overt violence before a certain time ?

- Corporate welfare:Yeah, within boundries.

- Private Charity:by all means.

- Public Welfare: sure.

- Death Penalty: No. Well, we don't have it here, so that's easily said.

- Stem cell research: That's a tough one. I'm basically against all animal research/testing. But there's no progress without research, I think.

What Political Party or Affiliation? : Not technically affiliated with any party, but I suppose I would lean slightly right of center.

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons)

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: Against. I suppose that if the Mother or the child are in danger, it's an option. It's not like there aren't tons of families that would love to adopt.

- Gay Marriage: Against the concept of gay marriage, but I don't think that bullying or otherwise mistreating the LGBT community is acceptable in any case. They are children of God just like me, so why should I judge them? They are faced with temptations just like me, but theirs are just different.

- Health care: As a Pre-Pharmacy Major, I think that healthcare is in need of reform, but the Affordable Care Act (or Obamacare) isn't the right way to do it.

- Gun control: Don't give them to convicted felons or mentally unstable people, but otherwise, minimal restrictions should be used.

- Illegal Immigration: I think it's great that people want to come to America, but they shouldn't have to illegally. It should be easier to get in legally and tougher to get in illegally.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general): One of the worst things in the world. However, it is a necessary evil and must be used occasionally. When we do go to war, however, we should make every effort to ensure a definitive, quick victory with as few unnecessary deaths as possible.

- Seperation of Church and State: For it in its original meaning, that is: No church running the state and no state-sponsored churches. I don't see anything wrong with praying in schools or anything like that though.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: I do think that we as human beings need to stop putting so much into the environment. As far as global warming is concerned, however, science has shown that the earth regularly goes through warming and cooling cycles. Our "contribution" is just a drop in a ocean.

- The UN: I don't think that it really serves the purpose that it claims to serve. Other than saying that Smallpox has been eradicated, I can't think of too much that they've done. Really a meaningless, and very expensive organization.

- Restrictions on curses on television: Different networks define different things as "curses". I'm for censorship of foul language. More importantly, we need people who can write good television and movies without foul language. Images and Words for example, doesn't have a single profanity on it, and most people on this board would agree that it's a pretty good album. It can be done.

- Corporate welfare: I think it's the company's responsibility, by it's very nature, to maintain good business practices that allow them to stay competitive in the modern marketplace. As such, I'm against it.

- Private Charity:  :tup This is good. I don't know what else to say other than that it works. Churches and local charities are a great example.

- Public Welfare: In need of serious reform. The welfare system should get people on their feet, it shouldn't be a way of life for some people. The current system is too easy to abuse.

- Death Penalty: That's tough, I think that it should be a last resort, and I mean absolute last, but we shouldn't be afraid to use it when the situation requires.

- Stem cell research: The Great Debate :neverusethis: I think that if we can do it without embryos, than we should. As far as embryonic stem cells go, we should never destroy the embryo. They turn into people, you know?

- Guantanamo Bay: Don't take as many people there, but get more serious about it when you do take people there. I think that America needs somewhere to keep their enemies when they need to isolate them from the rest of the world, and it's either Guantanamo or some remote island, and we already have Guantanamo.

-Drugs: I think that taking any substance that harms the body or is addictive is bad. I don't drink or smoke, I never have. I don't drink coffee or non-herbal teas.

What Political Party or Affiliation? : Registered Democrat, but I will vote for whomever fits my views.

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : Baptised Roman Catholic, and send my kids to a Catholic Private School.  But I do not go to church or subscribe/believe in organized religion.

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: For it in most cases, but against it in others (like late term)  Basically RvW.

- Gay Marriage: Emphatically 100% Yes.

- Health care: Needs a big overhaul, and would like to see everyone have access.

- Gun control: For gun control for certain individuals, certain gun types, and certain purposes.  Yes to John Q Public having a rifle to hunt, and a pstol to protect his home.  No to AK-47's for EV to unleash holy hell on someone who knocks on his door on accident.

- Illegal Immigration: Against it.  I am for legal immigration.  Make the system better to have more of the latter.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general): Necessary in some cases, but should be the absolute last resort.

- Seperation of Church and State: For it.  It should have no place in public institutions.  Pray on your own time....god will understand.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: I think it is happening, and we wont really do something about it until it is undeniably staring us in the face with really dire and immediate consequenses.  We humans like to deny and procrastinate until the consequenses wont allow it anymore.

- The UN: Wish it did what it was intended to do in the ideal.

- Restrictions on curses on television: Only on publically broadcast stations, and stations directed to certain demographics.  If you have to pay for a channel, it is OK by me.  You are in control of what you watch in the end.

-Corporate welfare: Sometimes it is neccesary....but tends to leave a bad taste in my mouth.

- Private Charity:  Do it when you can, but never at the expense of your own family.

- Public Welfare: Is needed in society, but needs reform.

- Death Penalty: Against.  Too much chance for error.

- Stem cell research: Yes please.

-Drugs: Yes Please.  LOL.  If alcohol and cigarettes are legal, the pot needs to be legal. 
Oh shit, you're right!

My views have changed somewhat and considering it is a new P/R, I figured I'd repost:

What Political Party or Affiliation? : I am not registered with any party, mainly because if I did align with any number of minority parties the US has to offer, it wouldn't smart to associate myself with them on paper

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : Atheist

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: Pro-choice. No one says  "Kill all the babies" but the choice must be there. Abortions should be free, cheap, and rareórare being the key word. The way to make it rare is by making contraception easily available to anyone and everyone.

- Gay Marriage: It is a civil right.

- Health care: Single payer universal system. Health care is a right not a privilege. People should be able to live their lives without ever having to bring money to a doctor's office.

- Gun control: Much much more. I used to think it was ok for hunting, but now I don't really see the point. I think nationalizing the gun sector could potentially be a good idea. If the government is the only group of people producing guns and ammo, certainly cases of guns and ammo in the hands of people who shouldn't have them would decrease, but the old "tyranny" argument comes into play here.

- Illegal Immigration: A path to citizenship should be made much easier.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general): Almost always a bad idea. I used to be a 100% pacifist but I am starting to change my tune, mostly involving violent protest though.

- Separation of Church and State: An absolute must. The mingling of church and state is partly responsible for the hell hole we currently find ourselves in.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: An unequivocal fact. We must act to not only stop doing what we are doing, but to also reverse itóa feat that is entirely possible if done correctly .

- The UN: Great idea with poor execution. I'd like to see the UN have much more power and actually pass resolutions when they get majority votes. The idea that the US basically controls the UN undermines the whole thing.

- Restrictions on curses on television: Let them curse. It should be a parents job to make sure their kids don't hear things they don't want them hearing.

- Corporate welfare: Definitely not. It almost always comes out of the pockets of people who really need the "welfare."

- Private Charity: Whatever you want to give.

- Public Welfare: It must be expanded to help those in need. Often, those who are really in need don't get everything they need largely because of the fear of Welfare Queens abounds. Our current welfare system is like a band-aid when the  wound is still leaking. We need to change the system to make it a cure.

- Death Penalty: Absolute hypocrisy. Killing someone because killing is wrong makes no sense. 

- Stem cell research: Absolutely for

- Guantanamo Bay: Terrible. A violation of so many human rights it is almost impressive. Close it.

What Political Party or Affiliation? : I consider myself a conservative libertarian.

What religion (or lack thereof) are you affiliated with? : Atheist

What is your stance on:

- Abortion: Pro-choice, I think that the choice should always be there.

- Gay Marriage: 100% for.

- Health care: Should be universal.

- Gun control: There should be much more. I couldn't care less if a person just wants a rifle to hunt and/or a pistol to protect his home, himself and his family, though I think they should always be locked away safely. However I see no point in a person having a AK-47 to protect himself.

- Illegal Immigration: I feel that the path to legal immigration should be made easier to cross, when that's achieved I feel that illegal immigrants should be thrown out of the country.

- War (Iraq/Afghanistan/War in general): War in general is essential for human progress, war has driven man to make huge technological discoveries that have made life easier for us. Radar was developed during WWII, nuclear power plants are here because of the advancements made in nuclear energy during the Manhattan project.

- Seperation of Church and State: There should be no connection between the two, complete separation is the way to go.

- Climate Change/Global Warming: I think we need to listen to both sides of this argument, maybe it's real maybe it's not, doesn't really matter since the human race will probably be extinct in a couple of hundred years due to the increased population growth. Now that's a problem that I feel is important to discuss, nobody needs 10+ kids, there's no need for more than 3.

- The UN: It's a great idea but it's been poorly executed.

- Restrictions on curses on television: Censorship is not the way to go.

- Corporate welfare: Against

- Private Charity: If people want to donate then they should be allowed to.

- Public Welfare: In my experience it focuses too much on one group, poor people with big debts, basically those who acted like fools in the economic boom, but forgets those poor people who don't have debts and didn't go crazy in the economic boom.

- Death Penalty: Against, except when it comes to severe cases where there is no chance of rehabilitation.

- Stem cell research: Pro, 100%

- Guantanamo Bay: For, sometimes enhanced interrogation techniques are required. Besides, if you think that Gitmo is the only one of it's kind or that closing it will change anything when it comes to other black sites then you are really naive.
