Socially: I'm a libertarian. Moral issues are not the place of the federal government to rule on. Give people their freedom to do what they please as long as it is not harmful and don't take it away.

Economically: I'm a border line socialist. I believe in a progressive tax system. I believe in a single payer health care system like medicare expanded to cover the entire US population. I believe in allowing workers to unionize. I believe public universities should be nationalized and tuition made free for US citizens. I believe in nationalizing the major utilities and natural resources of the country to bring them under public control and eliminate the for-profit nature of the pricing and selling of the necessities of life. I believe that one of the most important things we can do is eliminate lobbying in Washington so we can pass legislation that is in the interest of the people, not the special interests(the health care bill). It's also time to end "too big to fail". Break up the BIG banks or let them collapse.

Foreign Policy: I believe in self defense and the defense of allies. The war in Iraq was not a war of defense and therefor was absolutely wrong. The war in Afghanistan was justified to eliminate Al Quaeda, but has degenerated into a war of occupation. If the United States or it's allies are attacked I believe war is justified, and if not I believe that it is not.
