which political party would you say fits me more based on my veiws, as i am an independant?
Abortion - whether it is legal or not it will still happen so i would rather it be done by a surgeon who knows what they are doing than someone in a back alley with a coat hanger... i dont want to see anyone i love butchered because they cant afford to have a kid, it seems like the people who are so against abortion dont care about the fact that many children would be mistreated by parents who didnt want them and some will starve or become criminals...no child should come into the world unwanted or in a home that cant provide for it...but sadly they still do... Affirmative action- People should be admitted to schools and hired for jobs based on their ability. Death penalty - i think it is only acceptable when a person is beyond reformation, that prisons in themselves are ineffective serving only to sweep the criminals under the rug so to speak, these people are effectively broken members of society that have come off the tracks, and it is our duty as citizens to reform them back into functioning members of society Global Warming - true without a doubt, after going to places like wise, virginia, and west virginia and seeing first hand the damage the coal industry has done on the landscape, the people who's water has been poisoned,and modern slavery in mining company owned towns, and the high rate of cancer in that area. if anything else i am glad that someone is bringing down such a destructive industry, if we destroy the earth we live on there is no where that we could possibly reach at this time habitable enough for us to use then, and then what? what would we do with a new planet? screw it up just as bad? we need to realize everything we do has an impact on everything around us Gun Control - the right to bare arms is implied in the constitution, in the event of an invasion or a military coup the citizens have a right to defend themselves, not to mention the fact that if someone were to ban guns outright it could spread to other traditional weapons, and then even to the banning of martial arts... i dont think you should own a .50 cal without having all the permits and making sure you are sane either... Immigration - illegal immigrants are human beings, but i also think that if they want to work here they should fill out the paper work and pay taxes like the rest of us Religion - i follow what is written in the constitution church and state should be seperate, as long as science is not distorted in schools by religious dogma, and people stop persecuting gays for no other reason than religion, i will stay out of their way about it. i am not a huge fan of mega-churches as they are a slap in the face to the religions they represent (jesus told his followers to give up all their possessions and follow him) and a slap in the face to the tax payers... i have nothing against them having large buildings to keep their followers in but rather the fact that they find an excuse to put marble columns and really ornate things on their buildings when under their own holy book it says they should have spartan furnishings in their churches, i mean the first christians hid out in crypts. i dont believe in a god but i believe all things are connected in the circle of life, that matter and energy are neither created nor destroyed but only changed.. as strange as it sounds i would believe in a god under two conditions, one it came out and scientifically proved itself by exhausting every other possibility, and if it were a just loving god but so far no religion has ever proved their god nor made an entirely just loving god Gays - same-sex marriage is the right of two individuals to join themselves in marriage... there is no reason outside of bigotry and occasionally religion to oppose it, and even then no one is asking you to practice it... there is no such thing as government mandated homosexual intercourse... stay out of other peoples bedrooms, you wouldn't like it if it were the other way around and heterosexuals weren't allowed to marry, they could be life partners, but didn't get the same tax breaks because they loved someone of the opposite sex... i highly doubt any homosexual wants to attack heterosexual peoples marriages so why do some people want to attack homosexual marriages, not to mention that marriage is a legal thing not a religious thing, there is nothing to say atheists cant get married Social Security - since i am paying for everyone who is on it right now and i have to have faith in the generation after me, i don't see that it serves much of a purpose, but i'm glad we have it... Welfare - i think the welfare system needs to be improved, to give benefits to the unemployed, but also to the lower class workers who struggle on minimum wage to make rent, the thing about the unemployed is i think it needs to be studied on an individual basis, make sure the individual is seeking work and do everything possible to give them work, but if it is shown that they are not i don't argue on the morals and ethics of abortion,i argue about the situations that would drive someone to it... i don't think it is a lightly considered matter and i understand that their are many sides to everything... please do me a favor and read on... my thing on guns and weapons in general is that they are a necessary evil, i myself am a pacifist by definition, i avoid conflict unless necessary, but when it is necessary i am not afraid to bare my fangs and fight and do whatever is necessary to protect the ones i love... the problem with taking guns away from the average citizen is that it makes them easier to get into the hands of the criminal, and easier for the criminal to have leverage over the average citizen. the boys in blue wont always be around to protect you, and if someone breaks into your house at night they might arrive too late to find you dead... they are just a necessary evil... i would love to see some sort of cap on CO2 emissions, but the thing about fining these corporations is a $500,000 fine is nothing to a company that makes 100 million a year... it depends on who comes to office and what their views are, i don't vote on parties but on candidates... i couldn't vote in 08, i was still in high school and under 18 then... i liked some of Obama's ideas but not all, and i liked some of McCain's but not all, but i definitely thought Palin was an idiot so i was more afraid that if McCain got elected he might have died and she might have been president considering the summers have become blisteringly hot this in the past few years, and the winters progressively shorter, i would say my area is feeling some of the effects, but the thing is it also could be some form of climate change, it could be part of a natural cycle too...

You're the average American (which is not represented too often here on Yahoo! Answers. It really sucks being the only one on here.). You're politically centrist, leaning left on some issues, and right on others.

I have not read all your long list but I advice you staying on your own views, do not make them effect your decision, unless you're about to run for some position that require blending with them. Be on your own.

Well, Independents put Obama in office and look at the mess. So where do you think you fit in now? Who do you think you would vote for in 2012, a Dem or a Republican. I know it's a difficult situation for Independents, but really and truly, are you happy with the way things are going now? I don't know who you voted... More

Like a lot of independents who feel they can pick and choose from both parties to find the candidate that best fits their values and beliefs they prefer to stay independent. Perhaps that might suit you too.
Answered By: Depends - 8/5/2010
You are a moderate liberal. Definitely not a modern day conservative. Many conservatives would see you as a bleeding-heart liberal as they say though.

You know, if you join a party, the only real difference is that you get to vote in the primaries.

It doesn't matter what you're views are. If you don't know or can't figure that out, based on you're views, you're a liberal/democrat!!
Answered By: Miles from Michigan - 8/5/2010
I agree with most of you Chuckles. We think a lot alike. Except for affirmative action. The community should be able to set quotas so minorities can succeed. And guns. Are you kidding? They kill people.
