Complete social anarchist with anarcho-syndicalist organization with a free market. So yeah, that pretty much explains it.

Party: Democratic
Ideology: Very progressive. Want a welfare state where the government offers free public options for a wide range of infrastructure. Protect consumers and workers from companies which they cannot protect themselves against. Support a basic minimum income.

Abortion: Pro-choice until the fetus develops senses (which is not definite time, but current scientific literature seems to suggest 20+ weeks gestation)
Gay Marriage: Support
Drugs: Legalize all drugs, available for use at 18
Alcohol: Reduce age to 18
Stem Cell Research: Support all forms
Death Penalty: Oppose under all circumstances
Gun control: Support universal background checks. No guns in public. Ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines.
Affirmative Action: Oppose...this will never solve the problem at hand
Prostitution: Legalize, but do not allow brothels

Worker's Rights: Paid parental leave as in many countries like Sweden, for instance. Mandate combined vacation/sick/holiday pay of 25 days.
Right-to-work: Oppose. These laws just oppress freedom of association.
Corporate Welfare: Eliminate loopholes, particularly corporate inversion. Lower corporate income taxes, but ban negative income taxes.
Minimum Wage: Very important. Even $10.10 is not sufficient, though.
Taxation: Let's just say progressive
Capital Gains: Always tax as ordinary income
Health Care: SINGLE PAYER
Education: Charter schools are good, but most important thing we can do for education is make tuition free at public colleges and community colleges.
Trade: Free Trade
Social Security: In need of reform, but it is salvageable.

NSA: Like many, I am not too big of a fan of its tactics
ISIS: I support the war on terror. Air strikes are the way to go.
Military Spending: This can be reduced so easily.
Immigration: Amnesty. Promote legal immigration.
Cuba: End the embargo.
Foreign Aid: Support
U.N.: Support
Palestine: Try to work out a two state solution
Puerto Rico: Ideally, we should let Puerto Rico become its own country, but let them determine that for themselves.

Green Energy: Begin the move toward universal reliance on renewable energy like solar power to power electricity.
Keystone XL: Oppose
Nuclear Energy: Not the preferred method

Voter ID: Makes sense, but government needs to issue free IDs.
Campaign Finance: Rely solely on public funding for elections
Gerrymandering: the voting system for the House of Representatives should change to become a mixed-member proportional system.
Direct Election of Senators: Support
Your a Social-Democrat not a Progressive.

How is Islamism not a threat to western values or liberal democracy?. Everysingle islamic country has no rights for women, gays, or minorities. 71% of Danish Muslims believe that the danish cartoonist should be hanged...When any type of religion becomes that powerful in culture, it IS a threat to freedom. And right now, that threat is Islam.

However, America has made this worse by continuing to intervene in the middle east. We should not get involved.

More of a elaboration on my views.

Taxes:Flatter and lower. 28% Tax Rate for the highest bracket, 10% for the lowest. The Very poor would pay no taxes. 10, 20, and 28% rates. Close loopholes.

Immigration:Return to our 1920s immigration laws. All Illegals must be deported.

Labor Unions:Support an alliance between Unions and Business like in Japan. It benifts everyone and increases wages and profits for both workers and business. Also cut business taxes.

Middle East:Avoid getting involved. Kick Turkey out of NATO.
Um.... LOL?

Overall: Big-government liberal Republican.  Could pass for an Andrew Cuomo or Amy Klobuchar Democrat, maybe.   

Social Policy
Abortion: Supportive of Roe v. Wade, and generally pro-choice.  However, I am not opposed to certain “informed consent” laws and mandatory waiting periods.  Minors seeking abortion should have to gain parental consent.
Drugs: Continue the war on drugs with harsher penalties being applied to violators, including recreational users.  Enforce federal drug laws in States where marijuana has been legalized.
Censorship: The government has the responsibility to censor objectionable material from the air and radio waves.  The fact that satellite communications are exempt from FCC content regulation should be enough to appease the anti-censorship crowd.
Net Neutrality: Opposed; turning the Internet into a public good would decrease private investment into Internet infrastructure and thus make the internet less accessible to everyone. 
Gay marriage: The equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment makes statewide bans on gay marriage unconstitutional.  SCOTUS should strike-down all statewide bans, and the Congress should pass legislation in order to ensure LGBT equality in employment, healthcare, housing, education and other areas. 
Death penalty: Federal use of the death penalty is warranted in extreme circumstances; States can enact their own laws.  I personally do not oppose the death penalty on moral or religious grounds.
Prostitution: Local and municipal jurisdictions should be allowed to make their own laws to fit their communities as prostitution’s major effects are on property values and local health.  I would not support the legalization of prostitution in my community as a matter of moral decency and preserving property values.  Stronger enforcement of federal laws concerning human trafficking and child exploitation.   
Church & state: The state should stay out of religious affairs, and religious organizations and churches should be tax exempt with the exception of the monies they earn through commercial enterprises.  Forcing churches to forfeit their tax exempt status for making political stances is tantamount to “taxing” the First Amendment.  Individuals should be allowed to lobby and petition the state on behalf of the Church like any other citizen would be able to do for any other organization. 
Affirmative action: Implement a quota system in federal hiring in order to ensure representation of minorities, women and LGBT Americans. 
Hate crime laws: Crimes of corresponding severity should be treated similarly regardless of apparent motive.  No additional punishment should be levied for crimes perpetuated out of “hate.” 
Immigration: Comprehensive immigration reform including blanket amnesty for all non-criminal illegals.  Strengthen border security.  Maintain birthright citizenship.  Stronger enforcement of existing federal laws.   
Stem cell research: Support federal funding of stem cell research. 
PATRIOT Act: Support the reauthorization and expansion of the PATRIOT Act in order to give the federal government more power to combat terrorism.   
Gun Control: Status-quo.  Increase data sharing between state and federal agencies as a way to strengthen the effectiveness of federal background checks. 
Assisted suicide: Ambivalent.  However, living wills are generally a bad idea and end-of-life decisions are best left to family members.   
Gambling: Decisions should be left to local and municipal jurisdictions.  I would not support legal gambling in my community.  Heavily tax earnings gained through gambling and lotto.
Organ donation: Status quo.  Opposed to universal or “opt-out” organ donation; follow wishes of next-of-kin in ambiguous cases.  Invest in non-market mechanisms (i.e., public service announcements) to increase organ donation. 

Electoral Reform:
Term limits: No term limits for Congress or judges, but keep the 22nd Amendment.  Keep the seniority system in place in Congress.  Opposed to term limits for Mississippi legislators or other statewide officials.   
Statehood: Refer to popular referendums on statehood questions.  Allow for a referendum in Washington, D.C. 
Voting age: Keep as is, but allow people who will turn 18 before Election Day to vote in primary elections. 
Campaign Finance Reform: Status quo.  Political donations are free speech. 
Voting system: Keep as is.  Allow States to experiment with proportional representation and multi-seat districts. 
Gerrymandering:  Status-quo.  Opposed to “independent” redistricting committees.   
Voter ID: Pass a national voter ID law requiring valid photo ID in order to cast a ballot for federal office.
Primaries, Statewide: Opposed to partisan voter registration in Mississippi; support the current open primary system.  Consider implementation of a Louisiana-style “jungle primary.”  Allow all eligible Mississippi voters to vote in runoff elections, regardless of their previous participation in other parties’ primaries.
Primaries, National:  The national parties should push for presidential primary reform where large, rotating batches of states are allowed to vote at once as a way to decrease the power that certain states (i.e., Iowa, New Hampshire) have on the presidential primary process.

Economic Issues:
Welfare: Block-grant Medicaid and send back to the States with federally-enforced support and eligibility standards.  Opposed to drug-testing for welfare eligibility.   
Unions: Implement a national right-to-work law in order to diminish the influence of organized labor. 
Education:  Complete federalization of K-12.  All public school teachers and school administrators become federal employees and all local/state financing of public education is removed.  Ban on charter schools and vouchers, and consider bans on private education if found to be Constitutional.  Fully implement Common Core.  Establish national benchmark standards for K-12 and require students to pass standardized tests in order to advance into the next grade.  By removing State funding for K-12, States should be able to put more resources into Higher Ed.     
Privatization: Generally opposed.  Maintain current government assets associated with TVA and DRA.
Environment: Implement cap-and-trade legislation with exemptions for non-major polluters.  Increase EPA funding.   
Minimum wage: Oppose further increases in the federal minimum wage.  Expand the EITC. 
Taxation: Keep the current progressive system for income taxation.  Experiment with shifting the tax burden back to the upper classes through consumption-based taxation (i.e., luxury goods taxes, real estate taxes).  Implement an income tax “surcharge” on incomes over a certain level, say $3 million.  Raise and lock the Social Security tax cap to cover 90 percent of all workers.  Reform and lower corporate taxes as a way to discourage outsourcing.   
Healthcare: Repeal Obamacare.  Implement malpractice reform and allow insurers  to compete across state lines in order to decrease premiums.   
Trade: Support free trade as way to bring down prices for consumers.  Trade to correct American trade deficit by encouraging American producers to export, especially in the agriculture sector. 
Embargo: Use embargoes and sanctions as way to exert diplomatic pressure.   
Pork: Overwhelmingly supportive.  Use “pork-barrel” projects as ways to promote local economic development.   
Subsidies: Increase agricultural subsidies; generously subsidize struggling industries. 
Military: Maintain current military funding levels, but shift more money into R&D and away from traditional ground forces.  Make more use of military contractors as a way to allow for funds to go further.   

Foreign Policy

War: Maintain a constant state of military readiness, and be willing to go to war whenever and wherever American interests are at stake.  Do not be afraid to go to war unilaterally.  Use reputation as a military juggernaut as a way to exert diplomatic pressure. 
Israel-Palestine: Generally supportive of a two-state solution, but it most likely will have to occur on Israeli terms in order to be successful.  Increase support for Israel as it is the only secular democracy in the Middle East.  Call for an end to new settlements, but maintain that those living in settlements have a solely civilian status. 
Draft:  Status-quo.
UN: Use status as the UN’s largest financial contributor to encourage the organization into changing its role in a new, global environment.  Shift focus away from security issues and to humanitarian issues.  Use the UN as a global forum in which member nations may organize international relief efforts and financial aid.  Work through other international organizations (namely NATO) to deal with threats to international security.   
Nukes: Maintain American nuclear arsenal.  Expand the “nuclear club” to more U.S. allies such as Canada, Australia and Germany. 
Foreign Aid: Increase levels of foreign aid as a way to increase American presence and influence in the developing world.   

Um they just passed legislation to say that they're a Jewish state, so secular my ass.

No, they tried to and as a result the government fell.
So it didn't pass? Crap, I need to find better information.

Social Issues:

Abortion: Strongly Pro-Choice until the point of viability.

Gay Marriage: 100% in favor of, overturn state laws banning it at the federal level as discriminatory.

War on Drugs: Legalize all drugs, abolish the DEA

Prostitution: Legalize

Stem Cell Research: Expand

Affirmative Action: For but based on class instead of race

Gun Control: kind of torn, I think that there's a strong left-wing case to be made in favor of allowing people to bear arms. I can't understand liberals wanting to give racist cops a monopoly on gun ownership in big citites. At the same time if you could implement some kind of background check to prevent mass shootings i'd be all for it. I really think that overlaps with other issues also though like mental health.

Gambling: Support legalizing but I disagree with how it's done. (see below)

Immigration: The US is a nation of immigrants and I know that my ancestors were discriminated against by the WASPs when they first came here and I feel that people are hypocritical to oppose immigration. Yes it may depress wages somewhat but they're are other ways of stimulating them again. (see under economics)

Civil Liberties: Abolish the Patriot Act, Espionage Act, end NSA spying and police militarization, ban the use of domestic drones by police departments.

Other stuff: I guess i'm more socially libertarian then Socially Liberal since i've always had a problem with progressive paternalism. I think that sin taxes are fundamentally regressive and it annoys me how things like cigarette taxes and gambling are always tied to funding programs. It just seems like a bullsh**t way to avoid taxing the rich. I also think that bars should be able to allow smoking if they're adult only venues. Also the drinking age should be lowered to eighteen.

Economics:

Pro-Union, support single payer health care, free universal college education, guaranteed minimum income as a means of offsetting outsourcing. If we had guaranteed income it would be a boon to the economy as more people could leave their sh**tty jobs and either start businesses or pursue some creative venture. It would also be stimulus for those at the bottom. I also think that giving those at the bottom money directly is less demeaning to the poor then forcing them to be dependent on busy body social workers. Also institute a stock transaction tax and reinstate glass-stegal.

Foreign Policy:

Israel/Palestine: I believe that ethnic based states are fundamentally racist and if their ever could have been a two state solution it's been ruined by the nutty settlers moving onto what should have been Palestinian land. There should be one multiethnic secular state and I say this as a partial Jew myself.

Iran: I think we should lift the sanctions and move towards better relations with Iran and away from Saudi Arabia.

Afghanistan: Pull out already!

Draft: 100000% opposed

The US should remained engaged in the world and I think that under extreme circumstances intervention can be justified to prevent genocide but in general we should reorient our foreign policy towards one based on human rights and less in serving corporate interests.



Overall: Basically a Libertarian Socialist as my name would imply or more accurately an (LSD) Libertarian Social Democrat. I also think that my politics are in some ways close to Christopher Hitchens before 9/11.

 


Hate to break it to ya, but your not a Libertarian Socialist.

How, because i'm not an anarchist?
It's because you don't call for the means of production to be collectivized.

Gun Control: kind of torn, I think that there's a strong left-wing case to be made in favor of allowing people to bear arms. I can't understand liberals wanting to give racist cops a monopoly on gun ownership in big citites. At the same time if you could implement some kind of background check to prevent mass shootings i'd be all for it. I really think that overlaps with other issues also though like mental health.

Gambling: Support legalizing but I disagree with how it's done. (see below)

Immigration: The US is a nation of immigrants and I know that my ancestors were discriminated against by the WASPs when they first came here and I feel that people are hypocritical to oppose immigration. Yes it may depress wages somewhat but they're are other ways of stimulating them again. (see under economics)

Civil Liberties: Abolish the Patriot Act, Espionage Act, end NSA spying and police militarization, ban the use of domestic drones by police departments.

Other stuff: I guess i'm more socially libertarian then Socially Liberal since i've always had a problem with progressive paternalism. I think that sin taxes are fundamentally regressive and it annoys me how things like cigarette taxes and gambling are always tied to funding programs. It just seems like a bullsh**t way to avoid taxing the rich. I also think that bars should be able to allow smoking if they're adult only venues. Also the drinking age should be lowered to eighteen.

Economics:

Pro-Union, support single payer health care, free universal college education, guaranteed minimum income as a means of offsetting outsourcing. If we had guaranteed income it would be a boon to the economy as more people could leave their sh**tty jobs and either start businesses or pursue some creative venture. It would also be stimulus for those at the bottom. I also think that giving those at the bottom money directly is less demeaning to the poor then forcing them to be dependent on busy body social workers. Also institute a stock transaction tax and reinstate glass-stegal.

Foreign Policy:

Israel/Palestine: I believe that ethnic based states are fundamentally racist and if their ever could have been a two state solution it's been ruined by the nutty settlers moving onto what should have been Palestinian land. There should be one multiethnic secular state and I say this as a partial Jew myself.

Iran: I think we should lift the sanctions and move towards better relations with Iran and away from Saudi Arabia.

Afghanistan: Pull out already!

Draft: 100000% opposed

The US should remained engaged in the world and I think that under extreme circumstances intervention can be justified to prevent genocide but in general we should reorient our foreign policy towards one based on human rights and less in serving corporate interests.



Overall: Basically a Libertarian Socialist as my name would imply or more accurately an (LSD) Libertarian Social Democrat. I also think that my politics are in some ways close to Christopher Hitchens before 9/11.

 


Hate to break it to ya, but your not a Libertarian Socialist.

How, because i'm not an anarchist?
It's because you don't call for the means of production to be collectivized.

Good point, I guess that i'd be on the right-wing of any radical leftist movement just because i'm not a market abolitionist even though by the standards of American politics i'm basically a Commie.

Do to my recent move leftward I guess I have to change some things. I no longer support the "free" market and have moved towards a "to each according to their ability, to each according to their contribution." model i.e lower communism( unless your a Leninist then it's socialism). I have also added anarcho-individualism and anarcho-feminism to my ideology, but have continued my support of anarcho-syndicalism.
And here's my new political compass.

Economic Left/Right: -9.88

Ideology

Economic Issues:
Minimum Wage: $0.00
Right-to-Work: In all 50 states and then get rid of unions
Taxation: National sales tax (we got along just fine with no income tax pre-1913)
Healthcare: Remove all restrictions on the free market, focus on HSAs to make consumers more cost-conscious
Social Security: Privatize it
Education: School choice and vouchers.  Make options for what grade school to go to more like college choices.
Balanced Budget Amendment: Support
How morally righteous of you.
