Social Issues: Very liberal, although political compass says I'm moderate. I am 100% Pro-Choice. I am against seperate but equal ideas, so I support SSM.

Economic Issues: I am moderate-to-conservative here. The spending is insane in our government, and we don't know where it's going. I support low taxes, but not everybody's taxes can be low with a debt this colossal. I support free trade 100%.

Military Issues: "Speak softly and carry a big stick, you will go far"- T.R. That explains my beliefs here. An unstoppable military and a strong diplomacy. I support the war in Afghanistan. The war in Iraq was flawed when concieved, but the results (as in voting) are fantastic, so I now believe it was worth it. I never thought it would turn out this way.

Social Security- I am against privatization, but I believe you should be allowed to add extra money to your account, but keep a minimum %.

Against Affirmative Action in any way shape or form, it is nothing but reverse racism.
Not to attack your opinion, but what about hiring more women? I have met many women who say they missed out on a job because they are a woman.

Using Emsworth's List
Social Issues

General philosophy: Moderate-Liberal-Libertarianism

Separation of church and state: I strongly support the seperation of church and state, but oppose removing 'under god' from the pledge and 'in god we trust' from coins.

Freedom of speech: I strongly support a freedom of speech, and I oppose movie and video game ratings, and CD warning labels.

Right to an abortion: I support an absolute right to an abortion.

Affirmative action: Very strongly oppose

Gun rights: Support with a few restrictions, but mostly a states' rights issue.

Civil unions or gay marriage: I support gay marriage 103.637%

Euthanasia: Undecided, but lean towards support.

Prostitution: Support legalization 101.12%.

Capital punishment: Unconstitution as 'cruel and unusual punishment'. So oppose with the exception of Terrorists, and child murders like the one in George W. Bush's article.

Economic Issues

General philosophy: Capitalism.

Employers and Employees: I support allowing people to sue employers for firing them based on race, gender, and sexual orientation. I also support allowing employers to sue workers for the same, except replace firing with harrassing.

Spending: Cut spending on meaningless programs, spend less on welfare, absolutely eliminate farming subsidies.

Free trade: Support 102.45637%.

Funding of the space program: Support.
