Here's me! I'll probably add more issues over time.

Social
Overall: Liberal
Abortion: Legal in all cases. The Government should not be playing doctor.
Drugs:Legalize marijuana and most soft drugs.
Death Penalty:Strongly oppose, the more states the ban it the better.
Gay Rights:
Guns Control: We need universal background checks, assault weapon ban, large magazine ban and a national gun registry   

Economic
Overall: Socialist
Taxes: Support a more Progressive tax system with more brackets. Wealthy need to pay more!
Social Security: It's fine as it is for another 20 years, when we get to that point we can raise the Social Security tax.
Healthcare: Obamacare was a good start, but we need to go farther. Single-payer is the way to go!
Free Trade:Depends on the country. Canada yes, Mexico no.
Immigration: We need to make the immigration process easier, give citizenship to those who are already here and protect or borders in a human way.
Campaign Finance Reform: Only way we will have a true democracy is if we get the money out of politics.
Environment: Climate change is real. We need to stop offshore oil-drilling and fracking as they are both destroying the environment. We need to invest more in wind, solar and biofuels. Would be willing to compromise and allow for more nuclear power plants. 
Education: Invest more in public schools and teachers. Come up with teacher accountability measures that take more into account then just test scores.

Foreign Policy
Overall:Don't know what exactly yet
Iraq War: Bad!
Foreign Aid: Actually works and doesn't take up too much of the budget to continue or even expand.

I figure it's time I should post an update

Social
Overall: Liberalish
Abortion: Legal, while I have a moral distaste for it the alternative, that is giving the government authority over somebody's body, is a very dangerous slippery slope.
Drugs: Legalize most drugs.  Voluntary self-harm shouldn't be considered a crime.
Death Penalty: Shouldn't exist.  Needs to be a Constitutional Amendment or something to ban this as "cruel and unusual".
Gay Rights: How about, instead, we talk about universal rights?  Or why is it that we even have to discuss the concept of love and government?  I think the answer is quite obvious: We stop asking questions about what people do in the privacy of their own bedrooms and we back our rhetoric on that piece of paper called the Bill O'Rights that says that we shall not have a government that prohibits or endorses the practices of one religious philosophy over another.
Gun Control: Non-issue.  Those who automatically jump in the air for more controls after every shooting committed by some nutcase tend to overlook (but not ignore) the joke of a mental healthcare system we have that has an almost contemptible view of people with mental disabilities.  People who start foaming at the mouth that gun control will lead to a fascist one party dictatorship give the proles of this country too much credit if they think that the right to an M-16 rifle will prevent said police state.  I don't own a gun, don't ever plan on owning one, and I could give a sheyit if I get shot by someone with one.  NON.  FUUCKING.  ISSUE.

Economic
Overall: Left Wing State Skeptic
Taxes: Ideally I would prefer a Georgist tax structure that taxes the unmodified value of land over the income tax structure we have now.  The immorality of property ownership warrants it.
Social Security: Is a joke.  People should be able to opt out if they choose.  OF course, if they do choose to opt out of it, they don't get the benefits they would get otherwise.
Healthcare: Is a right, not a privilege.  There needs to be a public health system for those who can't easily and readily afford privatized healthcare.  However, I do believe that it would be an excessive use of state power and quite authoritarian to ban the practice of private healthcare.  So really, I guess a favoring of a mixed healthcare system with easily affordable public care for those who choose so.
Free Trade:  Is not perfect.  However, with globalization it's inevitable.  And is infinitely preferable to the system that came before.
Immigration: Abolish the authoritarian concept known as "the national border" and institute Quik-Stop citizenship registration.  Take a process that used to take years to accomplish and slim it down to a matter of minutes.
Campaign Finance Reform: My solution to this is simple: Kill the Corporations.
Environment: Should be a no brainer.  Keep your head clean of fumes, play nice with others, and keep your space uncluttered.  Otherwise, our planet ends up looking and smelling like your old college dorm room after one too many bong hits.
Education: I'm not sure how we fix this, but a lot of people really need to get the sheyit together.  We're talking about our nation's future here damn it!

Foreign Policy
Overall:Don't know what exactly yet
Iraq War: You know those Joel Schumacher Batman movies you saw as a kid and you see them when you're like fuuckin' 24 years old and stoned out of your mind and you're like "damn, did this movie suck major" even though you swallowed enough qualudes to have met your own father in the past?  Yeah, this was a bit worse than that.
Interventionism: Stop playing big daddy policeman.  You know that one jackass who used to bully everyone and took karate?  Yeah, that's what America has become to many people.  And, newsflash Obama, the drones don't really help shake that perception.  Now, we are the kid who bullies everyone, who knows karate, and is very proficient at flying remote control airplanes that drop sheyit on everyone when he's bored.  We need to cut back, so we save money and goodwill, unless a situation is REALLY calling for military action.  Oh yes, also be a good idea if the President (who isn't a fuuckin' god, like everyone who supports him seems to think) doesn't have as much authority to just off and send troops where he likes, congressional approvals/disapprovals of war be damned.
Foreign Aid: This isn't 1946.  We need to be smart with how we send our money overseas.  We need to delegate to humanitarian/charitable organizations more and less outright to governments.  Not against direct government aid to implement social justice per se, but am also in favor of private organization involvement in aid.  Really, just keep a humanitarian perspective on it and keep bureaucratic interference to a minimal.

More should come out later.

Social: Complete Feingoldian civil libertarian.  Pro-gay marriage (obviously for me Tongue), pro-choice in the vast majority of cases.  Pro-pot legalization (and regulation).  Anti-death penalty, pro-euthanasia, and yes, I'm against "in God we Trust" and "One nation under God" being in currency, the pledge of allegiance, etc.  Pro-gun control.  Support letting in more immigration in. 

Economic: Fair trade, very progressive taxation, passionately pro-labor unions (except sometimes the teachers' unions with regards to tenure.  And the American Musicians' Union can also be rather dogmatic).  Pro-regulation of big business and banks, including the reinstatement of the Glass-Stegall Act in its full original entirety.  Put a financial transaction's tax in there too.  Support raising the minimum wage to the living wage.  Support a single-taxpayer health care system, and a large increase in Social Security spending so that we actually have a safety net that's not a complete joke. 

Environmental: Yes, climate change is real.  Support a gradually implemented cap and trade system, along with much greater funding for solar and wind technology.  Oppose nuclear energy.  Also a big animal rights supporter. 

Foreign Policy: Dove.  Pro-Palestinian (though both their factions are crap), anti-Afghan war, anti-Iraq war, and generally extremely skeptical of anyone who wants to start a war even against the most insane regimes in the world.  Though I did (and still do) support the Libya intervention, and I think something seriously has to be done about the situation in Syria.  Very passionate about human rights in general.

Miscellaneous: Support campaign finance reform, want a parliamentary system in my heart of hearts, support proportional representation and oppose upper houses in general.  But so long as we're stuck in the shackles of the structure of government related to us by the Founding Fathers, I guess abolish the electoral college and institute preferential voting.  Same with all House and Senate elections.  Oh, and maybe give more Senate seats to larger states so that it's actually proportional to the population.  And give D.C. Statehood status already.

[3] Don't know what this means.

[4] I'm opposed to the current system, but I would like to admit less immigrants under a stricter criteria.
