Ideology

Social: Far-right
Economic: As right as it gets, but these issues are less important than social ones
National Security: Neo-con


Social Policy:
Abortion: 100% pro-life- THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE FACING OUR COUNTRY TODAY
Gay Marriage: Marriage should be between one man and one woman.  Of course, no one should have to provide service to a gay "wedding".
Drugs: Against
Stem Cell Research: None from aborted babies, adult stem cell research is fine
Death Penalty: Support in the most extreme of cases
Gun control: Oppose
Affirmative Action: Completely unconstitutional
Prayer in School: Allow individual students to pray as they choose
Transgender Bathrooms: Use bathrooms based on your birth gender (I have never been given proof that transgenderism is a real thing)

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
Personhood Admendment: Support
Term Limits Admendment: Oppose
Free Trade: Support 100%- NAFTA, NATO, and the TPP make us all better off.  We should have no trade restrictions with any country that we aren't trying to punish.

Foreign Policy and National Security
Iran: Do not negotiate with terrorists
Iraq/Syria: Do anything necessary to combat ISIS
Military Spending: Increase
PATRIOT Act: Absolutely, and people who say no baffle me
NSA Spying: If you don't like it, what are you hiding?
Israel/Palestine: Support our only ally in a hostile region
Immigration: Make legal immigration easier, but crack down on border security.  We can't reasonably deport every illegal immigrant, but we have to never give illegals citizenship.

Environment
Climate Change: Natural, the Earth has gone through cycles forever
Green Energy: Let the free market decide
Keystone XL Pipeline: Support

Electoral Reform
Electoral College Reform: Oppose
Gerrymandering: Keep it as it is
Presidential term: Only 2 Terms
Public Financing: No
Term limits: No
Voter ID: Support to combat voter fraud
Primaries: More caucuses

Far-right social, fiscal, and neo-conservative.  Christian conservative.  My #1 goal is to overturn Roe v. Wade and end abortion worldwide.  Reaganite movement conservatism is the path forward for the GOP, not populism, nationalism, or liberal-tarianism!

Pro-immigration (secure the border and end sanctuary cities, but don't deport non-criminal illegals).

Returned to GOP avatar since Trump mostly defunded PP via executive action.

Overview
Social: Conservative
Economic: Conservative
National Security: Hawkish
Party Affiliation : Republican

Social Policy:
Abortion: 100% Pro-Life, no exceptions
Gay Marriage: 1 Man, 1 Woman, Always
Drug Laws: Keep all illegal drugs illegal and take societial steps to lower alcohol use
Stem Cell Research: Never from aborted babies, otherwise fine
Death Penalty: Support only for mass murder
Increased Gun control: Oppose
Prayer in School: Allow individual students to pray as they choose
Sex: Work in the culture to stigmatize any sex outside of a serious relationship.  Strongly condemn hookups and one night stands.
Transgender Bathrooms: Oppose- you are a man or a woman at birth and can't change it
Religious Liberty/Freedom of Conscience: No one who doesn't want to should have to have anything to do with a gay "wedding"
Discrimination: Discrimination is generally wrong, but businesses should have the right to discriminate against anyone for any reason.  Then, the free market will cause people to boycott the establishment if they are really being discriminatory.

Economic Issues:
Minimum Wage: Abolish
Right-to-Work: Support
Taxation: Consumption tax, abolish income tax
Healthcare: Repeal Obamacare, open state lines to allow competition, encourage use of HSA's
Social Security: Gradually phase out
Education: School choice and vouchers. 
Balanced Budget Amendment: Support
Term Limits Admendment: The PEOPLE are the term limits.
Free Trade: Support without limits.  This has been one of the most discouraging things about 2016.

Foreign Policy and National Security
Iran: Repeal the Iran Deal and try to establish a secular democracy or kingdom
Iraq/Syria: Use military force to crush ISIS swiftly
Military Spending: Increase
PATRIOT Act: Support to stop terrorism
NSA: Support to stop terrorism
Israel/Palestine: Support Israel, our only ally in the region
Immigration: Crack down on border security to make sure no more illegals enter the country.  Abolish sanctuary cities.  But, allow anyone who will benefit our economy to come here legally.

Environment
Climate Change: Naturally occurring, nothing to worry about
Green Energy: Free the market and stop subsidizing green energy AND oil, gas, etc
Keystone XL Pipeline: Support

Electoral Reform
Electoral College Reform: Oppose
Gerrymandering: Let states handle it
Presidential term: Only 2 Terms
Public Financing: No
Term limits: It is called having elections.
Executive Agencies: Abolish about half of them, including the EPA
Voter ID: Support
Early Voting: Support (in-person only)
Absentee Voting: Not unless you are actually outside the state for the entire early voting period and on Election Day.  No voting by mail.
Primaries: Close primaries and award more delegates to states with caucus systems.  Let the voters vote in some shape or form on the delegates (I like Tennessee's system, but several are fine).  Some hybrid between proportional and WTA, moving closer to WTA (but never all the way there- maybe semi-proportional statewide and WTA by congressional district) as the convention grows closer.

Overall: I’d consider myself a moderate on most areas. All things being equal I’m going to vote Democrat but in many instances I will vote Republican. As I did in the 2012 MA Senate race. I came damn close to voting for Romney that year as well. Moderate Democrat sums me up perfectly. My “perfect politician” if there is such a thing, has already existed: his name is John F Kennedy. Literally everything he believed in, I believe in.

Abortion: Pro-Choice. Abortion should be legal up to 20 weeks. 20-24 weeks only in case rape/incest. After 24 weeks only to save life of mother.

Kennedy was staunchly pro-life
