May be a small thing, but soda and junk food taxes. Putting a tax on those things will not reduce consumption of them and likely will not have any effect on health.

Which is ironic, because normally the GOP believes taxing stuff massively distorts markets

Oppose no fly list (no idea if this is even a gop position...), generally favor free trade but with some restrictions to reign in exploitation, oppose common core, lower taxes for locally owned small businesses, support government funding of faith based charities so long as they don't discriminate against lgbt. I don't know. That's all I can think of.

Edit: oh and also oppose red light cameras.

^ Red light cameras are the biggest threat here at home.  They must go.

I tend to agree with the GOP on GMOs.

Not sure which party this even puts me in anymore, but I support free trade strongly. I also support the use of market-based systems in education, healthcare, roads, etc.

-NSA surveillance
-some foreign policy issues, I want less involvement overseas
-GMOs, I have a right to know
-somewhat on the death penalty, we need to ensure no one who is innocent is executed, I am not confident the current system guarantees that.
-drugs, I want to legalize most
-prostitution
-laws outlawing BDS, you should have the 1st amendment right to boycott Israel, even though I despise the BDS movement and 100% support Israel.
-issues of indefinite detention, defendants rights
-some lbgt issues like gay adoption, DADT, and non-discrimination protections in government employment (I don't support protections in the private sector)
-most social issues in general except for abortion
-I am a Republican because I disagree with the Democrats on basically everything else.

One issue I disagree with both parties on is taxes vs. spending.  You should not lower taxes without a corresponding cut in spending.  If you cut taxes without cutting spending, the debt balloons and Republicans lose the right to call themselves fiscal conservatives.  The Democrats want to raise taxes and spending, which is terrible too.  Republicans need to become the party of fiscal responsibility because if they don't, nothing will stop the debt from destroying this country.
