What is your political stance? Where do you draw the line?
My Political Stances: I am..... Anti-Drug - Conservative - Drugs increase crime. In 2007 illicit drug users were about 16 times more likely than nonusers to report being arrested and booked for larceny or theft; more than 14 times more likely to be arrested and booked for such offenses as driving under the influence, drunkenness, or liquor law violations; and more than 9 times more likely to be arrested and booked on an assault charge. Crackdown harder on drugs and you reduce crime. In support or against? What is your stance? Anti-Immigration - Conservative - Illegal immigrants take away some jobs from legal residents in America and they use our healthcare system for Americans who really need healthcare. Illgeal immigration also increases overpopulation in this country. Send them back to where they came from until they get legal status. What is your stance? Anti-Affirmative Action - Conservative - The best candidate for the job regardless of race. I don’t care what color your skin is as long as you can do the job and excel at it. We need better leaders regardless of race. What is your stance? Anti-Gay Marriage - Conservative - It encourages the threat of AIDS and other deadly diseases, it supports the notion that “anal sex with another male” is acceptable even though its biologically unhealthy. The proposition to this is that it doesn’t add to our overpopulation problem in the U.S. On the other hand, AIDS is a terrible disease and I don’t want to see it spread. What is your stance? Pro-Death penalty - Conservative - The worst of the worst deserve to die. No question about it. The Ted Bundy’s, The John Wayne Gacy’s, and the Hannibal Lectors of our society are incapable of being cured of killing others. Its their nature.If we keep them locked up it costs us less money than to put them to death. However, I would rather pay a higher price by putting them to death rather than letting them rot in prison for life----with the chance of them escaping from an insitution and killing another innocent victim. Ted Bundy is an example. He he escaped 3 times. What did he do? He killed and killed again. These killers are incurable and need to be executed if proven guilty and sentenced to death by the judicial system. Also, more executions means less overcrowding in the U.S. prisons and overpopulation in general. What is your stance? Pro-Stem Cell Research - Liberal - I support it for finding cures for disease only. I do not support stem cell research for “cloning.” We then stepping in Gods territory. We should only use stem cells it to cure cancers and deadly diseases. What is your stance? Pro-Choice Abortion - Liberal - The case is this: Are fetuses and embryos human beings and therfore have a right to life? The question is very debatable. A woman should have complete control over her fertility and pregnancy and that this entails the guarantee of reproductive rights. the pro-choice view does not consider a fetus to have the full legal rights of a human being. I think a woman has the right to do with her body as she pleases. Nobody should have any right over another persons body. Its tough to come to that conclusion but keep in mind the overpopulation problem in the U.S. and the number of babies that are born out of wedlock. What is your stance? Pro-Environment - Liberal - Cleaner air will help us live longer lives. Greed can sometimes kill health and make us life shorter lives. Clean and breathable air smells fresh, keeps us healthy, and promotes healthy eco-systems. What is your stance? Healthcare - Liberal - Universal Healthcare for all legal residents Americans have a fundamental right to have health care provided to them by their government. We are an aging population with the baby boomers being the largest generation in history and many dont have adequate healthcare. What is your stance? Education - Conversative - Vouchers? or No Child Left behind? I say vouchers. It is because any parent should have the right to choose whether their chilld goes to a private or public school. However the government shouldnt fit the bill if the parents choose a private institution. What is your stance? Am I missing anymore issues? Let me know what your political thoughts are. I would love to discover what your thoughts are on these issues. Thanks.

Thanks for your post I think it shows how stupid it is to draw the lines- Democrats believe this, Republicans believe this. People should stop just blindly following party lines and start thinking about the issues, then vote for the person who they feel has the same values they do... More

I'm with you on all counts except for abortion, I'm pro-life and believe firmly that life begins at the point of conception. One other note I would make is that, while I do strongly support environmental protections, I would not consider that a "liberal" stance. Yes, the Dems are leading the charge on environmental... More

Everything except one--I am pro-life, with exceptions made for rape and incest. A woman's right to choose happens when she chooses whether or not to have sex. Once she is pregnant, there is another body besides her own that is human, and deserves the protection of the law.
