Social Issues

General philosophy: Libertarianism

Separation of church and state: Support.  Don't care about pledge or coins, but important not to favor religions

Freedom of speech: Pro freedom of speech, including legal flag burning and legal "hate speech".

Right to an abortion: Support till viability outside womb, then only in special cases

Affirmative action: Oppose based on race, support based on economic need

Gun rights: Strongly Support

Civil unions or gay marriage: Support government only recognizing civil unions

Euthanasia: Support

Prostitution: Support legalization

Capital punishment: Oppose except for mass murder and terrorism

Economic Issues

General philosophy: Moderate

Employers and Employees: Support right to fire employees, except based on race and gender.  Unfortunatelysome will take advantage of this and claim a firing was race or gender-based, but this is good in principle

Taxation: Support progressive rate, happy with taxes as present

Free trade: Support.

Funding of the space program: Support presently, but could change based on other needs

Foreign policy

General philosophy: Realist

Iraq: Opposed because I didn't think the threat was enough to justify invasion.  If it had been more, I would have supported it.  Presently I believe we should stay in and send more troops if neccessary.
