Religion: I believe in freedom of Religion, go worship that piece of grass, don't expect me to. I do believe though that this country was built on
Judeo-Christian values, so if there is mentioning of God in documents or the like (plege of allegiance, coins, etc.) suck it up.
Abortion: I'm a male. I don't think abortion is right in any case because of religious views. There are many other alternatives (give the baby up
for adoption etc.). I don't care if they take a little more money of me to help out the babies via taxes. I'm not going to change on this so don't
bother trying. Like I said I'm a male, I won't have to make the decision. I can only advise.
Gun Control: I believe in fair gun control. No guns for criminals and the like. I believe it is the right of all freedom loving, lawful citizens. I
believe in responsible gun ownage. For more info go to: www.nra.org...
Capital Punishment: The Govt has a duty to protect the lawful citizens of this great country. Legitimate public authority has the right and duty to
inflict punishment proportionate to the gravity of the offense for the safety and well being of the many.
Welfare: Yes the govt. should help with various society betterment programmes (welfare etc.) but the brunt of it relys on the person and their
motivation to find work. If the welfare people don't want the jobs that migrate immigrant workers do, then no welfare check....simple. The shouldn't
expect a free lunch all the time. Offer them maybe free day care and small tax breaks or cash supports until they can get up and running.
Drugs: No legalisation. It would hurt US society in different aspects in my opinion. I think that if the drug dealers are caught and convicted then
all their property (and their families property! j/k) is to be liquidised and the revenue of THAT should go to rehab and other projects.
Immigration: If they don't carru a green card then they don't get jobs or other benefits. Work permits will be provided to those in the process of
green cards. If the welfare people don't want the jobs, then no welfare check....simple.
War on Terror: If this was the real reason why we are at war, then the values are good. This admin is using it as a excuse for its imperialistic,
money grubbing ways.
Deficit: I believe people should be taxed commensurate to their earning, that means rich should pay what they can not what they want to. It should be
across the board, not how it is now.
Wages: If you can make it, then you can keep it, no matter how much. Just be prepared to be taxed on it.
Medicare/Prescriptions: I would make a flat cost on all prescribed meds in each kind of category, example: aspirin would cost less to say valium but
all aspirin products would be the same price etc. I like the idea of a socialised medicine, everyone would be taxed on what they can afford based on
how much they make, yep you guessed it the rich would be paying ALOT more.
Nature: I believe that we are stewards of this Earth and we should be responsible on how we manage the resources of the Earth. I don't like the get
rich on the expense of nature though. Be responsible.
Am I conservative in this views? Possibly. Where am I on the political spectrum?
