I'm ProChoice, and belive that a woman should be able to have an
abortion, without having to go through the psychological stuff if it's
before the third month of pregnancy.
I think that at the point that the baby can be grown outside the womb,
than if the woman does'nt want the cild, than she should be able to
have a procedure to have the baby removed, and the baby would be
grown outside her, and be put up for adoption at the correct time.
I don't believe that Affirmative Action is the right chice in the
majority of situations, and that only the government can decide
when it is appropriate.
In essence schols can't do it without permision from the Department
of Eeucation, of which would ave t form an inquiry into it.
China is in my opinion one of the geatest threats to Democracy,
Freedom, Justice and Peace.
We must put sanctions on them, and do whatever it takes to keep
them from becoming a true Suer Power country, atleast while they
are a Lenninist country with the many human rights violations they
Climate Change is one of the greatest threats to not only our contin-
as a country, but as a species, and as such needs t be dealed with
I believe we need to as quickly possible transfer from fosil fuels to
clean and renewable energy sources.
We should also do as much as possible to try and reverse the effects
that we have thus far caused.
Compulsary Military Service
While I don't believe in the draft, I do believe in two years compulsary
military training & service.
However, I do not believe that people should have to go to war as
part of their service.
Continuance of the Electoral College
It is in my opinion that originally the Electoral College was useful,
but it has since become useless and should be done away with.
Corporate Influence on Politics
Corporations have far to much influence on politics and politicians.
Corporations should not be allowed to donate money to politicians or
their campaigns, and politicians should not be allowed to accept gifts
or money from corporations.
Creationism Taught In Schools
Creationism is a Christian/Catholic belief, and as such has no place in
public schools, as it violates the seperation of Church & State.
I do not believe in the death penalty, and as such believe it should be
done away with, the philosophy of an eye for an eye is a bad one.
You also have the chance that an innocent person may be killed.
As well as the fact that even though a person may have commited a
horrendous crime(s), they can be rehabilitated, and work to atone for
Dieing With Dignity
If a person is suffering from a painful disease, and their is little or no
chance of them getting better, and they are slowly and painfully dieing,
than they should be allowed to die with dignity, or in other words a
quick and painless death.
I do not believe in forcing a person to fight ina war if they do not wish
It is a violation of multiple rights, and does not help the country in any
It is in my opinion that thew drinking age should be lowered to 18.
It makes no since that you can legally purchase and use ciggarettes,
view and be in pornography and even decide the fate of the country
at 18, but you can't purchase or consume alcohol until you're 21.
Drugs should be legalised, though like ciggarettes, there shuld be a
minimum age of 18.
The same laws we use for crimes commited under the influence of
alcohol would work with drugs.
As long as people are responsible, and do not drive or commit a crime,
they're is no issue with people consuming drugs, as long as they know
the negative and positive short term and long term effects.
An education is one of the building blocks of a free and democratic
The current state of the educational system is appalling, and many
measures need to be taken to improve it.
Every legal citizen should be entitled to a full education, regardless of
their financial status.
Although some may disagree with it and indeed find it offensive, it is
freedom of expression, and freedom of expression should never be
hind-ered, unless it puts the safety of the public at risk.
I do not support the burning of the flag, though I belive people have
the right to do it.
Their is no reaons two people should be denied the right to marry just
because they are the same gender.
People should be given the full rights of marriage as are enjoyed by
Gays In The Military
A person who wishes to serve their country should not have to keep
their sexuality a secret if they do not wish to.
Just because someone is homosexual,, does'nt mean they are not as
good at things as a heterosexual person.
The current "Don't ask Don't tell" policy is apaling, and needsa to be
The constitution guarantees us the right to bear arms, or in other
words to own guns.
The regulations and bans of the last few decades are a blatant
show of disregard of that constitutionally guaranteed right and
should be repealed immediately.
A person should not have to go through precise time consuming
registra-tion either, a person should only have tpo register that they
own a gun, not what kind or how many they own.
Though the intentional use of a gun to commit a crime should be
given a heavy fine along with a slightly worse sentence.
The Iraq war is both completely unjustified, and one of the greatest
blunders we've ever been lead into.
I believe we should not be there, however I do realise that an imme-
diate pullout within a years time is a bad idea, and very dangerous.
We should be pulling out troops back home, but at a regulated pace.
I believe we should over a five year period start bringing our troops
Israel is one of greatest destabilising sources in the Middle-East,
and proving not to be a country we should be allied with.
We need to stop giving the Israeli government/military money.
We must disarm them of their nuclear weapons.
We must not ally oursleves so closely with Israel.
We msut not allow crimes commited by the Israeli government/
military to go
Though Israel does have a right to defend itself, as does every
country, there are limits to that.
Labour Unions are in principal a good idea, but they must be
held up to scrutiny and forced to be transparent.
Outsourcing has become one of the greates disasters of our
We must not allow companies to exist in our country, or have
our government buy their products if they outsource more than 70%
of their overall jobs outside this country.
The Patriot Act simply should not be allowed to continue.
When its time comes to have it renewed, it should not be.
Prayer In Schools
Requiring prayer of any kind in schools for any reason should not be
allowed, as it gos against the seperation of chrurch and state.
We should not be paying out reparations to the descendants of people
who rightfully would have gotten them.
Seperation of Church & State
Seperation of Church & State is something that is an important part of
our government, and needs to be enforced more than it currently is.
The current social security system is not working, and need vast refroming.
I believe that it is our duty to spread democracy to all parts of the world,
however we cannot do this by force.
We must non-violently spread democracy.
Just as the Presidency had term limits, so to should the congress and Supreme
By doing this we can make the ogvernment more for the people, and less for
