After reading quite a few threads on this forum, I was forced to ask myself where I would fit in. I agree with some OP views, are against others, and think some are just silly. But in truth, I have never really given my political views great thought. I have always been one of those people who voted for whom they felt better for the job at that time, instead of being party aligned. My mother insists I'm a democrat. My husband calls me a republican. i just took an online quiz that said I was a Centrist. I think I may be confused. After reading here, I think the members of USMB might be able to help me sort myself out. I wasn't sure where to place this, but seeing all of the ridiculous threads and polls started in this forum, I felt safe in doing it here This isn't a joke poll. I'm really curious about this. So here are some of my basic, inherent beliefs and views, feel free to comment or question as needed. * I am pro choice * I am an outspoken defender of GLBT rights * I am against illegal immigrants receiving government assistance. * I listen to Mike Savage alot, but am frequently turned off by his statements. * I think military service should always be voluntary * I think possession and illegal drug usage should STAY illegal * I think the government spends too much money on the prison system * I am for the death penalty for capital crimes * I am an agnostic atheist * I think the government as it stands is becoming far too big-brotherish * But I am for more security cameras in public areas * I think we completed what we needed to in Iraq, and should have left a long time ago * The recent government bailouts disturb me, but I can't yet figure out WHY * I am a defender of Muslims, but against extremists * I prefer logic and evidence over "beliefs" * I am against a national ID card Ok, that should be a good start. Mods, feel free to move if this is in the incorrect place. TIA.
