Social Issues: Against partial-birth abortion, but other than that support a woman's right to choose. Pro Same-Sex Marriage. Against Affirmative Action in any way shape or form, it is nothing but reverse racism. 100% organized school prayer, the though pledge thing was a bit much. I think Marijuana should be legalized and taxed. If people want to be stupid, they have a right to be. Drinking age should be lowered. Prostitution should be legal in certain places, though they should be kept away from schools. I believe all child molesters should be kept in an isolation cell for the rest of their lives. I personally oppose internet filtering, but believe it should be left up the schools. Homeschooling annoys me and I think it really hurts kids, but if the parent and child both wish to do it, it isn't my business.

Economics: Pro free-trade. I have no real problem with partial privatization of social security so long as it is done slowly and carefully. I support universal healthcare as well, but that is probably my only liberal economic position. Not much else really, I don't care about economic issues as much as most people.  

Foreign Policy: I believe the Iraq war was a mistake. Usually, it depends on the situation.

You see, than in that case, the company would have been choosing a man because he was a man Therefore whoever it was, was putting put men over women. Sex shouldn't come into it at all. If the man is more fit for the job than the woman, the man should be hired and vice versa. Companies shouldn't make their decisions on the person's race or sexuality (whether it be favoring men or women), they should make them on the person's abilites to to their job.
