Please comment and discuss.

But remember, emotions can get heated, so be considerate and polite. 

(NOTE: I also made the Undecided/Neutral category less specific, because most people on this site have an opinion, and it would be kind of pointless to make even more options when only a few people are going to vote.)

Every time I get paid, money has already been taken to pay for it. I certainly spend plenty of time supporting it. [/smarta$$]

     I am paid under the table, so none of it is taken to support the war. Grin

Um I guess I do line up more with paleoconservatives now that you pointed it out and I just read what there all about, but there are things I am very libertarian on especially social issues.

But, how you feel about state government in regards to those issues, would shape whether you are a libertarian or a paleocon.

Do you believe that your state, the state you live in, should ban or legalize same-sex marriage?  What about abortion?

Ok now were getting into tricky areas. First of we have to decide is marriage a religous institution or is it state sanctioned, because the right wing who profess to want smaller federal goverment are the same ones who want to say its a religous instution and want the federal goverment to ban it. So if it is a religous institution it should be up to the churches and if the church see fit to marry two smae sex people then the state should have to honor it, and thats how I think it should be left up to churches. Me personally I dont care if two people of the ame sex are allowed to marry, so I guess I am for it. As far as abortion goes I am pro-choice and no I do not think my state should ban either.

If you don't believe in the 'Non Aggression Principle' you are by definition not libertarian, going by their own litmus test. Of course going by such an incredibly strict standard means 90-99% of people will never be considered (or want to identify) as 'libertarian.' But then this is the same group of people that think having a government-owned statue for a mascot makes sense.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

No.  I posted here when it began that it was going to be a costly and bloody quagmire, and I continue to hold that position today.  Moreover, we have succeeded in our goal of disrupting a stable dictatorship and assassinating that dictator and members of his family.  Time to come home.

Absolutely not.  Needless and costly war that served no purpose to our national interests.
