Social Issues: Mostly Libertarian
Abortion: Completely pro-life, with life of the mother exception.
Gay-marriage: Support it, but the best idea is for the government to not be involved in marriage at all, because it is a religious institution.
Drugs: Legalize marijuana, possibly other drugs as well. Lower drinking age to 18.
Gun-control: Absolutely opposed. Eliminate "gun-free" zones.
Patriot act / other "counter-terrorism" efforts: Completely opposed, these things completely violate our civil liberties. Abolish the TSA, repeal the patriot act, stop the indefinite detention part of the NDAA.
Stem Cell research: Embryonic stem cell research should be illegal, other forms of stem cell research are fine.
Death Penalty: Absolutely opposed.
Euthanasia: Undecided.

Economic Issues: Far right
Minimum Wage: Abolish it. It hurts poor workers more than it helps them.
Spending: Reduce dramatically. Reduce spending on both entitlements and military. Cut most government programs. Reduce funding for welfare, medicare, and medicaid. Raise age for medicare to 70. Cut welfare for anyone without disabilities and under 70.
Taxes: Repeal 16th amendment, abolish income tax. FairTax is a pretty good idea, but I have to look into it more.
Social Security: Privatize it.
Education: Privatize it. Give out education vouchers. Ultimately this should only be a state function, not a federal government function.
Federal reserve: Audit it. Eventually abolish it.
Regulations: Dramatically reduce economic regulations.

Foreign Policy: Non-intervention
Military size: Reduce dramatically. Keep somewhat large for defense purposes only.
War in Afghanistan: Leave immediately.
Iran: Try to work out diplomatic solutions.
Drone strikes: End immediately.
Foreign Aid: Stop giving it.
United Nations: Leave, or at least scale back our involvement.
