Here's me! I'll probably add more issues over time.

Social
Overall: Liberal
Abortion: Legal in all cases. The Government should not be playing doctor.
Drugs:Legalize marijuana and most soft drugs.
Death Penalty:Strongly oppose, the more states the ban it the better.
Gay Rights:
Guns Control: We need universal background checks, assault weapon ban, large magazine ban and a national gun registry   

Economic
Overall: Socialist
Taxes: Support a more Progressive tax system with more brackets. Wealthy need to pay more!
Social Security: It's fine as it is for another 20 years, when we get to that point we can raise the Social Security tax.
Healthcare: Obamacare was a good start, but we need to go farther. Single-payer is the way to go!
Free Trade:Depends on the country. Canada yes, Mexico no.
Immigration: We need to make the immigration process easier, give citizenship to those who are already here and protect or borders in a human way.
Campaign Finance Reform: Only way we will have a true democracy is if we get the money out of politics.
Environment: Climate change is real. We need to stop offshore oil-drilling and fracking as they are both destroying the environment. We need to invest more in wind, solar and biofuels. Would be willing to compromise and allow for more nuclear power plants. 
Education: Invest more in public schools and teachers. Come up with teacher accountability measures that take more into account then just test scores.

Foreign Policy
Overall:Don't know what exactly yet
Iraq War: Bad!
Foreign Aid: Actually works and doesn't take up too much of the budget to continue or even expand.
