    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!

    I heaps agree with you on most everything except abortion and death penalty.

    Why should we spend several million dollars in tax payer money to warehouse a serial murderer for decades?

    Adultery should be illegal? How on earth would you enforce that?

    And mandatory organ donorship?!

    Nice start

    I can live with abortion but not late term except in exceptional conditions.

    I'm OK with the death penalty in some situations.
    Peter Sutcliffe and his like.
    In Indonesia, the shoot people who import drugs. I have a young daughter who I want to see grow up in a place without the clear evil that is drug use.
    I don't argue against the government line.

    Sounds about right.


    Religion is pretty much the norm in all schools here.
    The vast majority allow students a range of teachers and split into religious groups for these lessons. Other than that, they mix in all other lessons.
    I can see how that would be different in Australia and other countries.


    Hard to argue with that one.
    I've seen the British NHS and compared it with the cash only system here.
    Here, people die of the easily curable and manageable.


    A few reservations but nothing too much to argue with.

    That'll upset a few but not me.
    The man is always guilty of the sex crime without excuse but the woman should protect herself, not assume men should behave (because some don't).
    I'm unsure any actual blame should be placed on the woman for the rape, but it's clear she bears responsibility for her own safety.
    Not that such foolishness from the woman should stop the rapist's balls being cut off with a rusty penknife.

    - I'm an Aussie Not me
    - 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 Politics is to the death, so stuff like that is probably tame compared to what you don't know
    - I'm a major leftie, but I am told I am slightly conservative Let's see :)

    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

    I am strongly pro Choice as well. However, I am also strongly supportive of states' rights. And, I can only support elective abortions up until the point of viability which is determined by the date at which a premie can survive.

    - 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 am also anti death penalty - anti for anyone....ever.

    But, I strongly support free speech. I googled that name and you want someone put to death for speech?

    Wow.

    Speech is only free if one can support that right for the speech most offensive to them.


    - I believe global warming exists and that is a natural occurrence, which is being helped along by mankind

    I can't even imagine having beliefs about science. That just doesn't make sense to me.

    - 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

    Agree.

    - UHC is the way to go. It works well here in Australia, everyone should have to pay taxes to help out their fellow countrymen

    MAYBE agree, IF the laws are effective and cut waste. Ours does not.

    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

    Disagree. That's just waaaaaaaay too authoritarian to me.

    - 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

    I agree with that, but I also want the individual states who run it to make that call for themselves.

    - Parents who allow their children to become morbidly obese should have their kids taken away from them

    Wow. That's just waaaaaay too authoritarian to me.
    - 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

    Wow. That's just waaaaaay too authoritarian to me. Not the state's call. Creeps me out to think that it ever would be.

    - 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.

    Wow. That's just waaaaaay too authoritarian to me.

    - 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

    Maybe. Legally? Rarely.
