I think if someone really wants to kill themselves it will happen. But my personal belief is not to take my own life.(Well unless Hilary becomes the President):laugh:

Abortion: My personal beliefs is the same. No! (My Father had to choose between my sister birth and my mom's life. The doctor said choose one. My dad said save them both. The doctor succeeded. Praise The Most High.

As far as the rest-YES

No

Situation depends. I lean towards "No,", but say "Yes" if there's certain complications or rape.

Tricky. I think we should help them figure out how to take care of themselves.
should those that demand that others think as they do be allowed to make that demand
Depends. If it is, in the long run, for the better of society and people, yes. Otherwise: No

They can demand all they like, they just can't expect obedience.

I'm not really liberal. But my ex is a card carrying member of the ACLU and the NRA.

All answers have an implied "with few exceptions" after them.

should be allowed to kill yourself
No
should you be allowed to have an abortion
No
should science be allowed to use stem cells for reasearch
Depends on where they come from
should you be able to practice whatever religion you choose
Yes
should you be allowed to own a gun
Yes, and no restrictions on the type
should you be taxed fairly
Fair is too vague a term, as some people think taxing the 'rich' at 95% and the 'poor' not at all is fair. I think we should all be taxed equally.
should those that can not take care of themselves be taken care of
Yes, but not by the federal government
should those that demand that others think as they do be allowed to make that demand
Yes, and I should be allowed to tell them to go screw themselves and leave me alone.

not to be a rebel or anything, but how does answering any of these things really define me?

Impact others? What in the hell does that mean?
That little caveat changes it all though. Why? Because everything we do impacts others. Some in major ways some in minor ways. But you are impacting others regardless of what you do and say.

should be allowed to kill yourself
YES

should you be allowed to have an abortion
YES

should science be allowed to use stem cells for reasearch
YES

should you be able to practice whatever religion you choose
"Practice" - no
"Believe" - YES
NOTE: Practice of a religion that has you killing people is not a permissible act - you can "believe" but you cannot "practice" those aspects of your religion that are counter to safe society (such as murder or rape)


should you be allowed to own a gun
Duh, YES.

should you be taxed fairly
YES

should those that can not take care of themselves be taken care of
On who's dime? And what is the dividing line? This is so grey that it cannot be summed up in a sentence. But in general, there are many valid arguments that the profoundly disabled should be cared for by the state if they have no other recourse.

should those that demand that others think as they do be allowed to make that demand

Allowed to make the "demand" as a statement? Yes.
Allowed to INFLICT their ideology on others? NO.

should be allowed to kill yourself
No. There is no dignity in suicide.

should you be allowed to have an abortion
No. The child recieves no due process. Nor should murdering a child be an acceptable response to eliminate the consequences of previous choices. if you chose to put yourself in a position where a pregnancy occur, why should the child suffer because you dont want to take responsibility? There are alternatives.

should science be allowed to use stem cells for reasearch
I guess that depends on what kind. But regardless, who is stopping science?

The real question is whether the federal government should be funding it. and the answer is no. The market place should drive research.

should you be able to practice whatever religion you choose
Yes, with the caveat if your religion calls for the murder of people or something that violates neutrally based laws in the system, then you shouldnt be.

should you be allowed to own a gun
yes, but why would you want to? Hand to hand combat is much more fun.

should you be taxed fairly
Yes. Fair being less than 10%. God doesnt ask for more than 10% why should the government?

should those that can not take care of themselves be taken care of
Yes, by charities, private organizations, Friends, family, not the federal government.

should those that demand that others think as they do be allowed to make that demand
Sure, they can make the demand all they want. Course, Im probably going to ignore them or laugh loudly as im walking by.

should be allowed to kill yourself
Yes. If a person is suffering from a painful terminal illness and two physcians agree the individual has less than six months to live, it is acceptable.

should you be allowed to have an abortion
Yes. In the first trimester, the state has no interest in the matter as the fetus is not viable outside the womb. Once the fetus reaches late second trimester, where the fetus appproaches viability outside the womb, the state may take an interest, unless the pregnancy threatens the health or life of the mother.

should science be allowed to use stem cells for reasearch
Yes. Thousands of blastocysts are discarded on a regular basis by IVF clinics. DOn't see anybody kickin up a fuss about those "unborn babies" being tossed out with the rest of the medical waste.

should you be able to practice whatever religion you choose
Yes, so long as that religion does not actively seek to bring harm to others. THen there must be linmits on its practice.

should you be allowed to own a gun
Yes, but I prefer knives.

should you be taxed fairly
Yes. Everyone pays their fair share...deductions only for children. A flat tax would do nicely.

should those that can not take care of themselves be taken care of
Yes, the mark of any civilized society is in how well those unable to care for themselves are cared for by that society.

should those that demand that others think as they do be allowed to make that demand
Yes, they can demand as much as they want so long as they don't do so at the point of a weapon, and so long as we have the right to say no to such demands.

It's a free speech thing. Many people make demands while excercising their free speech. The only thing is, they have to learn that they cannot expect people to obey their demands... At least if they are not insane they can't.
