Figured I might explain my position on a few things and also share some things about myself because its late and I'm bored. - I'm an Aussie - I used to vote Labor, but I switched to the Greens after Julia Gillard (current PM) stabbed Kevin Rudd (former PM) in the back and stole his job - I'm a major leftie, but I am told I am slightly conservative My positions: - Strongly pro choice. I am fine with abortion for whatever reason, at any stage of the pregnancy. While the thought of a late term elective abortion sickens me, I gave it a lot of thought and decided that I still couldn't force another person to use their body to sustain life if they didn't want to - Anti death penalty - not even killers like John Sharpe (google him) deserve death. Rather, they deserve to rot in prison, and then rot some more. - I believe global warming exists and that is a natural occurrence, which is being helped along by mankind - Anti religion in all public schools. If you want your kids to learn about religion, send them to a religious school. Don't send them to public school and expect them to have Bible study - UHC is the way to go. It works well here in Australia, everyone should have to pay taxes to help out their fellow countrymen Other opinions: I believe adultery should be illegal. Marriage vows are meant to be sacred, and if you cheat without a good reason (abusive partner, neglect for example) then you should face charges, although I haven't thought beyond that, to be honest - People on welfare should not be allowed to buy smokes or alcohol, and welfare should be given in the form of vouchers, to prevent people buying drugs and other wasteful items - Parents who allow their children to become morbidly obese should have their kids taken away from them - Those people with severe mental illness and/or mental retardation should never be allowed to have children - People in comas who will never wake up should be removed from life support - taxpayers are paying to keep that person alive and our taxes should go toward people who can actually benefit from our money - Everyone should be signed up as an organ donor when they turn 18. There would be an opt out system, instead of the current opt in. - A woman should sometimes, in certain situations, bear some responsibility for her sexual assault. For example, if she chooses to walk home alone, rather than with friends, and deliberately chooses a dark road, instead of s street well lit, then she is walking into danger, and people who choose to walk into danger should take some of the blame - but not much Most people won't like my views but that is my opinion on a few things. I think I am more conservative than I thought, but I still consider myself to be an extreme leftie. Y'all are free to tell me your opinions!
