Social Issues

General philosophy: Liberal

Separation of church and state: Support

Freedom of speech: Support.  Flag burning should be legal.  Fred Phelps' sh**t should not be.

Right to an abortion: First trimester legal.  Second, leave to the states.  Third trimester illegal.

Affirmative action: Oppose, but I don't have an objective eye since I've been personally harmed by it.  Slave reparations are a better solution, I think.

Gun rights: I support gun rights for hunting, sport shooting, etc.  I also support common sense things like trigger locks, background checks, waiting periods, bans on cop-killer bullets, and restriction of firearms that have no purpose but to kill someone with.

Civil unions or gay marriage: Gay marriage.  An acceptable compromise would be repeal DOMA, but let each state decide whether to have gay marriage performed in itself--a backhanded way of gay marriage everywhere, I guess.

Euthanasia: Unsure

Prostitution: Should be illegal, but let each local area decide for itself

Capital punishment: Strongly Oppose

Economic Issues

General philosophy: Liberal

Employers and Employees: Employers can hire whoever they want.

Taxation: Reduce for middle and low class, raise for the rich.

Spending: Increase spending in education and social programs

Free trade: Not sure.  Not at expert, or even a novice on the issue.

Funding of the space program: Dramatically increase.  Perhaps the most important thing we do.

Foreign policy

General philosophy: Dove

Iraq: Withdraw
