Where do I stand politically?
These are the issues I feel strongly about, and how I feel about them. Where would you say I stand politically? ___________________________________________________________________ NO to abortion, except in the rare case where the baby would die anyway AND the pregnancy would cause medical problems to the mother. YES on green initiatives, whatever it takes to become 100% sustainable, with renewable energy sources. and YES to protecting our natural resources and wildlands. Eventually NO more drilling at all, but for now NO more offshore drilling, and increase our acreage of federally protected wildlands. Implement more non-pollution, recycling, and other green things into communities. YES on immigration, even without the proper paperwork, IF they're willing to work and make a life here, not just sit around on welfare and expect things to be handed to them. NO on stricter school standards, NO on "teaching to the test". YES on a broader home-schooling base, YES on hiring teachers who know what they're doing in the first place, NOT "trying to fix the ones we have". and YES to increased arts and music programs in school, regardless of the cost. NO to retail growth and urban development. YES to Universal Health Care. YES to a sliding tax percentage, dependent on your income. NO to war, get the troops we already have there to clean up the mess we've made so far, then get everyone OUT and DON'T send any more. NO to Big Pharma, Big Corn, Big Soy, and Big Beef. Teach the people the truth about which foods harm & which foods heal, make those foods more available without Godzilla-sizing them with chemicals or polluting it further, then step out of the equation and let the people do it. No need to "sneak" "whole grain" into Cookie Crisp... just teach the kid to like Raisin Bran in the first place. Encourage the return of the backyard garden. YES to a pay decrease for public service personnel such as police, firefighters, and medics, IF the choice is between a pay cut or a workforce cut. I'd rather have the ones we do have paid less than out of a job altogether. YES to legalising marijuana. If it's not "ooh taboo" anymore, yes people will go nuts with it at first, the "thrill" of it, but once that dies down it will only be the people who were going to do it anyway. Reduction in drug-related crime. "Avomatic"... I wouldn't *want* them to be under-paid... but if the two choices were either they're under-paid or not there at all, I'd rather they be under-paid and there than adequately paid and unavailable.

You seriously need put your beliefs in order, otherwise your are yet another undecided and ineffectual libertarian. Your desire for pay decreases to essential government personnel is the most telling of all, do you really want those that are there to save your life to be under-payed.

Very liberal Democrat, with a few exceptions.

You are a liberal that doesn't like abortion. Actually, I know many liberals and none of them like abortion, they just don't think it is the government's business to make that judgement. You you are a Liberal.
Answered By: Smitty - 5/26/2010
you're extremely far left with the exception of your stance on abortion. One or 2 issues doesn't make a difference on your leanings though, so you're definitely a dreamland nutjob.

A centrist, independent, or a modern whig.

Abortion is a green initiative.
Answered By: Meowzers - 5/26/2010
You are idealistic, and if you keep that wish for the optimal thing in fairness and effectiveness you should be a great independent. You don't have to choose sides, I don't, I choose positions on issues which fall exactly where I want to be and I know exactly why I stand where I stand because I look long and hard at... More
