expanded views using Emsworth's list:

Social Issues

General philosophy: Liberalism.

Separation of church and state: I strongly support the separation of church and state, including removing 'under god' from the Pledge of Allegiance (actually oppose teacher-led readings of the Pledge)

Freedom of speech: I strongly support the ACLU's position on free speech

Right to an abortion: I support a woman's right to choose, including late-term abortion, and Medicaid funding if she cannot afford it

Affirmative action: Support AA, but oppose racial quotas

Gun rights: Increase restrictions on guns

Civil unions or gay marriage: Support gay marriage, though the issue should be left to the states

Euthanasia: Support, but only with clear consent

Prostitution: Legalize, but heavily regulate

Capital punishment: Unconstitutional as 'cruel and unusual punishment'.

Public nudity Generally allowed, with some restrictions. Female toplessness always allowed.

Gambling Allowed, but government shouldn't sanction it (i.e. lotteries)

War on Drugs Treat drug addiction as a public health issue. Decriminilize all drugs.

Economic Issues

General philosophy: Socialism.

Employers and Employees: Sexual orientation, along with race, religion, gender, disability, etc. should be protected from discrimination.

Taxation: Progressive tax. No tax for the poorest people. Up to 50% for the richest.

Spending: Greatly increase spending on social programs. Increase welfare and Social Security Disability Income.

Free trade: Some tariffs are necessary.

Funding of the space program: Support, but reduce funding.

Foreign policy

General philosophy: Dove

Iraq: Opposed from the beginning.

Neoconservatism: Oppose

What's your opinion on polygamy, bigamy, and incest, N.C. Liberal?

I am generally against polygamy and bigamy unless each partner considers themself married to all the other partners (i.e. one straight man and two bisexual women). Of course, this is a very small percent of polygamous relationships.

As far as incest goes, if consensual it should be legal, but marriages should not be recognized between relatives closer than first cousins.

What are your positions on those issues, Ebowed?
