I favor amnesty
I support abortion
I support limited gun control
I support gay marriage
I oppose auditing the fed
I oppose government drug tests for welfare
I support a progressive income tax
I support increased government spending during recessions
I support some regulations on the finance industry
I support the green movement

I think that does it.

I think you're the first person I've seen here with negative social/economic scores and a Republican avatar.

I challenge anyone to explain me AHDuke's politics. Tongue

What's there to explain? I lay them out beautifully for all to see everyday!

I'm generally opposed to prostitution and the rest of the sex trade (BRTD's beloved strip-clubs, for instance) although I still think making such things illegal is probably the wrong idea. By American standards, this would probably be considered a somewhat conservative position.

I'm also a fairly strong supporter of free trade, although I don't think that's necessarily a counterintuitive position for a liberal to take.

I'm a Democrat. The fox news/dittohead crowd would undoubtedly consider me liberal. Also, note what was omitted there. I didn't once mention bombing Iran, how disgusting fags homosexuals are, jesus, or making sick people choose between food and medicine. That makes me a socialist.

I support reform and experimentation in public schools even if teachers' unions are against it.
I support fracking.
I support more and faster foreclosures to clear out the housing market.
I oppose further anti-tobacco measures and regulations on unhealthy foods.

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Effective policing requires to know when backing down is in the best interest of public safety.  By all accounts, the culture of the Ferguson Police was ignorant of that fact, and instead treated Cartman of South Park as a role model for how to be a police officer.

Protectionism seems to be in vogue amongst some of our younger liberal members, though, no?

Maybe I should clarify that I'm using "liberal" in the American sense of the word.

I think of it as a neo-mercantilist sentiment cropping up on both sides of the aisle. Some people are encouraging discrimination against goods and services provided outside of ones community, region, or country, thinking that purchasing foreign-made stuff or outsourcing jobs is in one way or another harmful to workers and/or national interests. I am reluctant to compare it to "free" or "fair" forms of trade since neither aims to rig terms of trade in favor of manipulating the market to mostly - if not overwhelmingly - benefit their own country rather than all of the nations involved.

There are a few instances where I fancy protectionism, but those stances are not meant to shelter Americans from foreign competition so much as to shelter developing countries from what may be terms of trade that threaten to harm their developmental prospects or cause humanitarian issues.
