    Hi i'm Grace from the PNW. This is my first real venture into online political message boards and so it will probably take me a little bit of time to figure everything out a little more but i'm hoping to be able to share my opinions on topics that interest me and hear your opinions too. Politically my left/right leanings depend on the issue but overall I tend to prioritize issues that involve sustainability, environmentally friendly practices, and things to improve local communities and peoples lives. Religiously I am a non-denominational Christian and I will genuinely try to think about what Jesus would do in most situations that I come across which helps guide me in my life the best that I can.

    As for some of the more major and divisive issues I am pro-life, for gun control, against the death penalty, supportive of LGBTQIA+, I do believe that humans impact climate change, i'm against imminent domain policies, against many of the pipeline expansions such as dakota, i'm for a simple path to citizenship and amnesty for current illegal immigrants that are working and don't have a criminal record, i'm for increased healthcare for people but I don't think we should get rid of private healthcare options, I do not believe that corporations are people and I am against companies, labor unions, and non-profit organizations from donating to political candidates and parties, I do not think that making things like college and healthcare for all to be free is practical or realistic although both systems are in need of change in some way, I disagree with torturing suspected terrorists and I also disagree with military actions without congressional approval. I'm sure i'm forgetting a lot of issues but if i'm missing something just ask and I'll answer the best I can.

    Welcome.

    It's nice to see you think about issues rather than just conforming.

    It's just an acronym to be inclusive of the LGBT community.

    I don't know what that means, sorry.
