Anyone who supports the war on drugs or tobacco bans/restrictions/taxes is a morally disgusting individual.

I certainly don't support the war on drugs, but at the same time, I wouldn't go as far as to say those that do are "morally disgusting". It's a ridiculous assertion.

My views are basically a unique mix of Nader, Buchanan, Paul, and Duke. Can anyone beat that?

I know I did. Smiley

Just for shits and giggles, so I can see how I've changed over the last year or so.

Abortion: Support fully.
Separation of church and state: Also support fully. We need much more, to be honest.
Education: More decentralization, support ending federal involvement in curriculum.
Environmental Issues: Support increased protection, and support more land to be covered as federally protected.
Affirmative action: Would support if income based, not race.
Gun control: I oppose increasing gun control. Would like to see an armed, educated populace.
Death penalty: Vehemently against.
Flag burning: Support.
Euthanasia: On demand, like Comcast.
Prostitution: Also on demand. Just a service like any other. Support brothels, and streetwalking. Support unionization (wishful thinking).
Immigration: Support open borders. Support illegal immigration. Support amnesty.
Gay Rights: In favor of gay marriage, and adoption rights.
Drugs and Alcohol: Support complete, and total legalization. Support legalizing private production, also. Do not support government mandated 'potency' levels.
Censorship: Extremely oppose. In favor of reducing FCC controls over content.
Gambling: Support fully.
Language: No national language. No requirements.
Health care: Support a universal system.
Embryonic Stem Cell Research: Support fully.
Warrantless Wiretapping: Disgusting.
Unions: Support but with reform. Support decentralization, and power given back to members. Propose an anarcho-syndicalist like transformation.

Economic Issues

Taxes: Increase taxes on the rich.
Trade: Oppose free trade. Support protectionism.
Welfare: Support.
Regulations: Support increase.
Space Program: Support, but not a priority. Mars can wait. Neither of us are going anywhere.
Energy Policy: Support a concerted effort to develop alternate energy production, outside of nuclear. Hell, gimme my anti-gravity device, already.

Foreign Policy

War: Vehemently oppose in almost all circumstances.
United Nations: Generally oppose. A useless insult.
Israel: Support economic boycott, sanctions, and educational boycotts.
Foreign aid: Support without 'fine line' demands.
Iraq: Leave immediately.
Iran: Leave them be.
North Korea: Same as above. Support negotiations to release political prisoners, possibly taking them in as refugees, and whoever else would wish to emigrate.   
China: Reduce trade, open immigration further.

It's only right that we undo our interventionist damage by kicking the Jews out of the land they have no rightful claim to.

...Apart from the fact they were there for years before the Canaanites arrived. Yeah...

O Rly? This might have some grounding if we were talking about the same people.

Claims to the land, culturally, are the same as claims to the land, politically. (And no, I don't support forcing anyone out of Israel)
