Muslim Ban: "I'm Donald Trump, and I don't approve this Constitution message.

Presidents have the exectutive power to ban immigration from any country.

Reagan did it. Bush did it. Clinton did it. Dubya did it. Obama did it.

All members of the Supreme Court voted for it, but suddenly it's unconstitutional because you say so?

- Support Planned Parenthood as long as funding isnít used for abortions

LGBTQ+ Rights
- Support same sex marriage and adoption

Guns:

Euthanasia
- Support as long as the patient is terminally ill and expected to live 6 months or less
- Patient must be of sound mind to make the decision, must not be a result of mental illness
- Doctor cannot be forced to perform the procedure, but should be able to recommend one who will

- Support tariffs on some imports to protect American industries.

Taxes
- No huge issues with current tax rates, though we need to be better about how we are using the money
- Simplify the tax code to make it easier for people to understand

I'm very confused right now. you seem like an alt-right type and yet most of your stated views here are centrist or even slightly left-of-center.

Prolly because I donít give af about certain social issues, the only ones that really matter to me are trade, immigration and energy... Iíve never been alt-right and it just looks like it cuz I troll 90% of the time. My views might be centrish I guess but ISideWith still has Trump at 84% for me.

Social Policy
Abortion: 100% morally Pro-life. Politically pro-life with the early exceptions.

Prostitution: Morally against, politically undecided.
Stem cell research: Support, but no killing babies.
Gun control: Against in nearly all cases.
Gambling: Natural selection in action. Allow it.

Electoral Reform

Voting Age: 18.
Campaign Finance Reform: Publicly finance all campaigns.

Taxation: Lower taxes on those making under $200k, progressive tax otherwise

Social Policy:

Abortion: Pro-choice until the Second trimester, and after that point, only danger to the life of the mother should be allowed. Support Planned Parenthood funding.
Same Sex Marriage: Completely support.
Drugs: End the war on drugs, legalize marijuana, decrimalize drug use, OPPOSE Tobacco 21 laws. Release non-violent drug users from prison.
Stem Cell Research: Support with federal funding
Death Penalty: Support in undeniable, extreme cases of murder. And for Warren Jeffs.
Gun control: Support open and concealed carry, support giving teachers guns. Ban assault weapons and bump stocks. Support mandatory background checks.
Religious Freedom: Supportive if their beliefs are able to be practiced within the law.
Affirmative Action: Oppose. People should be judged by merit, not by their immutable characteristics. Put the focus on equal opportunity for everyone.
Prostitution: Decriminalize
Euthanasia: Legalize

Economic Issues:

Minimum Wage: $10.10 base national minimum wage.
Trade: Supportive of the USMCA. Tariffs are necessary in some rare cases.
Education: There needs to be more school choice. Students should be able to test out of subjects they donít want to pursue. Undecided on the governmentís role in college.
Balanced Budget Amendment: Support.
Immigration: Path to citizenship for all non-violent illegals. Punish companies for knowingly employing illegals, and give that fee revenue to the worker. A wall is absolutely necessary. Improve airport and port of entry security.
UBI: Yang Gang


Foreign Policy and National Security:

PATRIOT Act: Support
NSA Spying: Support
Israel: Support, but decrease funding
NATO: Support as long as they pay up. Try to normalize relations with Russia as best we can.


Environment:

Climate Change: Real and a big threat.
Green Energy: Make Nuclear Fusion energy a #1 priority.
Keystone XL Pipeline: Finish it, and make sure it's the last we need.

Electoral Reform:

Electoral College: Abolish; every vote should count the same.
Gerrymandering: End it. Give states model legislation with multiple options on how to fairly arrange districts. States that don't comply lose federal funding.
Term limits: Support unlimited presidential terms, but a 12 year limit for Senators and House Members.
Voter ID: Yes, with free IDs for all.
Compulsory Voting: Hell no. But make Election Day be a holiday, or preferably a weekend.

Election funding: Make all elections 100% publicly funded.
Lobbying: Ban
Statehood: Require referendums for Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Pacific Territories with option to leave/become independent. Personally support.
Supreme Court: Fine the way it is.

Additional comments:

- Rehabilitation is a fundamentally good principle, but donít even try if theyíre not willing to change.
- I want to choose how to spend my own money. Eliminate or reduce the size of some federal programs in exchange for the increasingly needed UBI.
- Humans make mistakes and should be forgiven.
- Diversity of thought is extremely important
- People should talk to their neighbors
- Things can and should be done more efficiently
- Identity politics causes division and hatred
