OK I'll just make this one quick

Religion:
You expect me to get involved in that!?!?! I am anti-belief.... sounds cruel, but isn't really. And no, it doesn't mean I believe in evolution because hey, THATS a belief isn't it?

Political:
Strongly right wing

Social:
Well hey, let the world do what they want to do.... their life, their choice

I guess since it's changed i'll put it up here..

Religon: Agnostic. There is a higher power but I don't believe in the "Christian God" and I was raised Catholic. But the reason i'm agnostic has nothing to do with Catholism..and I do defend old beliefs for the sake of argument sometimes. I don't know. I'm a bit of an enigma sometimes..as many are finding out/know.

Political: I don't go for either sides specifically. It depends on whether I like the individual running or not. But I do tend to go more left than right.

Social: Pro-gay rights, pro-life--uhhh yeah..GO GAY MARRIAGES!

Time to change this again!

Religion- Bible Christian: I say that because after reading the Bible, I lost trust in the denominational system. I believe that the Bible is the true word of God and that the Christian faith is based on it alone.

Political: The party system is bad for the country. I just vote by who I believe the best candidate is. Naturally, I would refer to my religious views on moral matters. The Constitution is there for a reason.

[Edit as of January 17, 2007]

Country: United States

Religion: Catholic. And it actually matters to me.

Political: I'm a moderate conservative. I think that anybody who devotes themself to one political party is an idiot, because both of the major parties (in America, at least), are based around the bullshit that defines modern politics. Neither party is willing to compromise, and it's tearing the country apart. War is neither good or evil, and is merely a tool that can be used for either end. I favor regulated capitalism, because I feel that people should have to work for everything they get, and that anybody can rise from nothing (and don't give me the bullshit that they can't, because I wouldn't even be alive if my grandfather hadn't). Communism decries personal responsibility in favor of collective responsivility, which diminishes individual human value. However, total capitalism allows monopolies to rise, and therefore, it must be regulated lest people lose that ability to better their lives. I also feel that citizens should be able to choose which parts of the government their tax dollars go to (for example: you're given 10 options of government organizations your taxes can go to and you pick 5). On that note, I think the government should take all the money that it's giving to Planned Parenthood (which is a ridiculous amount of money, regardless of your political persuasion), and give it to charities like Midnight Run. Also, private charities always accomplish more than government-controlled ones. Neither creationism or evolution should be tought in school, as neither has the hard evidence to justify teaching it as fact in a science curriculum. Illegal immigration is bad. All my great-grandparents came here legally, you should too. It's not impossible. Mainstream media also is based on partisan politics, and is therefore bad (honestly, the only remotely reliable source of news is the BBC). Religion should not be the basis of government, though at the same time it should not be shunned from it, as a government should reflect the collective beliefs of the people it is serving (there IS a happy medium, people). Science is totally politicized, and therefore, mainstream scientific discussion bullshit. Global warming is an issue, but like all aspects of science, it's been totally politicized. I don't really trust any politicians. I just trust some less than others.

Social: Abortion can't be justified. No matter what way it is spun, an innocent life is being destroyed, and that's simply abominable. The worst people are the ones arrogant enough to assume that the children in question would choose to die rather than live what pro-abortion advocates assume will be a "hard life." As for gay marriage, I believe that it should be depoliticized; marriage should lose its legal status, granting any two people the right to a civil union, and leaving marriage up to individual religions. Honestly, it's more of a religous thing than a legal thing, so involving the government is nothing more than a pointless layer of beaurocracy. I'm also against the death penalty. Somehow I can't help but feel that no human is responsible enough to decide whether another human being is worthy of death. Life in prison is a more fitting punishment for serious criminals, anyway. On that note, murderers and rapists should never see oppurtunity for parole. Prisons exist for punishment, not "rehabilitation." Also, groups like the ACLU only make racial tensions worse, pushing us farther away from a unified society. Not everything's about race, stop pretending it is, you're just spreading the hate. Also, the racial quotas certain colleges set completely makes the acceptance pool unfair on both ends. Feminists: if you want equal rights, you can't expect us to open doors for you. I promote equality, not superiority, which is what most minority groups want (actually, it's what all people want, organized civil rights groups just assume they're justified in that desire). I've seen too many people do fucking stupid things on drugs to even listen to the ignoramouses who want them legalized. As for censorship, I'm partial to the words of Tom Petty: "I don't believe in censorship, but I do believe that an artist has to take some moral responsibility for what he or she is putting out there. And I think a lot of these young kids are going to have to learn the hard way before they realize that you can actually do some damage if you're being careless or frivolous in what you're saying." Homelessness is a serious issue that few people really understand (participating in Midnight Run gave me a whole new perspective on the issue). Everybody should spend some time doing charity work. It's a person's duty to use what they have to help those who don't.

Ok Ok... though I don't normally post in the Contro section...

Country: USA

Religion: Roman Catholic. There have been times when I've questioned my faith, but, somehow I always end up back at the church. I feel a close bond with my religion.

Political: A damn stubborn Republican. I disagree with most all of what the Democratic party stands for. Do NOT expect me to debate. I don't like to argue with people. This is why I typically stay away from the Contro thread... things usually get ugly in there.

Social: I am not anti-gay, but, I don't think I could support gay marriage. I'm just fine with civil unions, though. I am a strong advocate of anti-abortion (if my birth mother had taken the advice given by my biological father then I wouldn't even exist today). Also, I am a fairly social person. I love my friends very much. I like being here on LA and would be very sad if I were to ever, for some weird reason, get banned. I have a life outside of LA and enjoy it too. I'm a good student in school and extra stuff outside of school. I tend to be very friendly around here... until you really piss me off.

Political: I don't really bother with it... everyone's scratching everyone else's back around here

Religion: My parents are hindu but I think that most religions have too many biast teachings...that's why I was an atheist thro' highschool. I do believe in a God ... but I guess I don't really follow any religion.

Social: I'm anti-gay marriage for the simple reason that people weren't meant to be sexually involved with the same sex....I mean, can't people just be good friends?

I'm an animal rights activist in that I don't believe animals should be bred and butchered for our own convenience. I am a vegetarian and I'd like to become a vegan, except I have issues of weight-loss whilst being one.

I also strongly believe that man is destroying this planet and we need to preserve whats left of our environment before it's too late

And I'm fine with abortions, I just don't think I would be able to perform one though! I'm definitely for the death penalty...and euthenasia

Religion: Agnostic, but I still celebrate christian holidays with my family. I have grown distant with christianity since I have found myself more in depth with science. I don't believe in "God", persay, but I do believe there is a higher being of power we can't comprehend.

Political: Democrat and Liberal. However, I do beileve in some of the core republican beliefs, even if the current surge of power of republicans in the government turn away from some of those beliefs.

Social: Yes to abortians, as long as it is before the third trimester. If someone doesen't want to have a baby, then they should know enough NOT to have sex. Parents are to be informed whenever such things happen. I'm for the death penalty, however, I think the person on death row should be put through prison for a long time before getting killed. Someone who had the nerve to kill somone else should get reciprocation, but not get it early. They deserve to suffer first. Pro-gay marriage/union/whatever. I hate our homo-phobic country. It sickens me to the core that someone would think it's such a big friggin deal that two women or two men with certain tastes can't express they're love in more than a social manor. I'm also for a pure democratic america. We aren't a true democracy as long as someone else is making the big decisions. No leaders needed.

Country: UK

Political: Right wing, and sort of no nonsense, verging on fascism. I don't agree with debt relief, because it creates the possibility of a superpower to rival Europe and America and would make us less rich.

Religion: Christian, but I do follow the opinion that the Bible was filles with lots of shit by opinionated Romans, Jews and English Kings who wanted excuses for doing the things they do. A loose, religious moral almost like Deism suits me fine.

Social: Gay people? They won't go to hell, but I don't believe there's anything different about them to anyone else to make them gay. It just seems like a lifestyle choice they've made. Asylum seekers? Bring in what the economy needs, not what Brussels demands. Euro? Why, it's poorer than the pound - we'll join then when we need them. Abortions in no circumstances, really. Adoption is the answer.

believe what you want...it's your freedom. How can we know what religion is the right religion to practice? I guess if you feel you belong to a certain denomination or group that expresses your values and beliefs, great. The next person should mind his or her own business because it's a choice to believe in something not a priviledge. I believe in only what I see, feel, or dream in my life. Obviously I don't visually see God but I have formed my own conclusions through experience and wisdom and choose to have faith in Christian teaching. For those who have a problem with these decisions, you can go to hell. :)

Well, okay... first post for me! Yay!

I'll just give you the short version, and then if you have any specific questions, I'll answer them. How's that sound?
Religion: Latter-Day Saint.
Political: Mostly central/neutral, but I tend to lean towards Republican.
Social: Along with my religious beliefs have taught me, God gave us all free agency, and we are to make our own mistakes, then learn from them. So, I say let people do whatever they darn well want to, because you're not really going to be able to stop them, and the world doesn't revolve specifically around you, or your beliefs, especially not in America. Believe what you want, that's fine, whatever floats your boat. However, that doesn't mean I'm going to always agree with you, and you just have to accept that, because that's me, and I'm not going to change for you.

Religion: christian. i go to an evangelical church, but i'm not really concerned with denominations. it's where my family goes and i like the pastor, so that's why i go there.

Political: i mainly vote democratically, but i'm not strict to that party...so if i disagree with something democratic, i'll still vote against it.

Social: pretty much freedom and equality for all. gays, straights, blacks, whites...whatever, we're all the same but different.

Religion: Agnostic, Borderline atheist. My mom and dad are Christian(Baptist) but I just can't follow it anymore. I do believe that there is some higher force but we will never know of it existence and it will never have it's own religion. I do think, however, that religion is an important thing for people to have if it is used correctly. When I say correctly, I mean that it is not used as an excuse for prejudice, war, etc....

I say that I'm borderline atheist though mainly because I'm tired of thinking about death and religion and all this crap.

Politics: I like to be involed in politics(As much as a 16-year-old non-voter can...). I do not proclaim alligence to any one side as I see merit in both sides of the table. But I tend to go with Democratic views moreso than Republican. I am a hardcore believer in separation of church and state, as religion can be used in inproper ways(see above.).

Social:
Pro-gay marriage: There is no such sanctity in marriage, in my opinion, and there never has been. Marriage used to be regulated by the father and the child had no say. If there was a sanctity, then it was destroyed a long time ago...

Pro-Choice: I have mixed feelings about this one. My opinion is in the case of a Sexual offense(rape) then it is the woman's choice since she had no say in the pregancy. As for abortion in a non-crimanal case, ONLY if it's before the Third Trimester.

Anti-war:
Some wars should happen, but most shouldn't. I can be here all day on this topic but I think you can think up PLENTY of examples of good wars and bad wars.

On gun laws: If guns were banned, the world would be better. But it won't change the fact that people will still find ways to get ahold them. The Second Amendment shouldn't be used to keep gun laws away since it was written in a time that guns were either single shot or took forever to be reloaded, so no one could do serious damage with just ONE gun.

Death Penalty: I am against the death penalty but the fact is that it will probably never go away. So instead I say this: If your going to put them to death then do it damn it! Considering these people have to wait in a cell, alone, for years knowing that they are going to die then they would probably view lethal injection as a release rather then punishment. I know I would.

Political:
HATE the spin and lies that is Bush's "democracy" HATE the war in Iraq or should I say "Vietnam II". Capitalism is corrupt end of story. Communism could work if the American Administration wasn't so hostile and hateful towards it, like their spin about "One-Party State" and "axis of evil" and "Freedom" blah blah blah

Well Ricky, if all we have is our faith then what faith is that? Faith in what? Faith in whom? It is impossible to have faith - period. It has to be placed in something/someone or it becomes meaningless.
You believe in human rights? Thats great. But where did they stem from. If there is no absolute, then good and bad becomes relative. And murder which is wrong to most people may be perfectly cool for someone else...thus the progression of this conformation may result in the masses believing what we believe to be wrong as being right and if those people manage to get into positions of authority (like many who have controversial beliefs do) then Human rights may well become a relative thing, and may one day become the very opposite of those that exist today. There is no limit to the malignancy of mankind... Believing in God is good, but a God that is absolute and a God that is just ... Christians serve a God who meets all criteria...

I have neglected to post some things here about my ideals

Religon:

You can say...I really truly don't worship a religon. I never dwell on religous thought, most either on the creative imagination or scientific side of myself.

Political:

Don't find much use to dwell in this realm either. I dwell only when forced to dwell but at this moment in time, it is not one of my priorities in thought

Science:

You betcha. Sometimes I think so scientifically that the students at school get confused. Also has been the case before on the Ventrilo. I see the world scientifically and in detail. Not as plain and normal and no need to ask why inwardly.

Social:

Even science ppl need some socializing. I guess due to my personality being dwelled in Science and Sci-Fi I don't attract many friends. Part of the reason why I am online in general. Place to make up for my lack of real life friendships. Also place to talk to others...since I have been thrown into the worse situations before. Act tough but sitting at the comp I don't feel it.


Hope that helps out a little

Country: Australia

Religion: Hardcore christian. I believe the Bible is the inerrant word of God and that everything it says is true. My dad is a baptist pastor, but I think people should be judged on their individual beliefs, not on what church they go to.

Political: Fairly strong right wing. Anti guncontrol, pro life in all circumstances, anti gay marriage, pro Bush. I think that Iraq needed to be taken out regardless of whether they had nukes or were sheltering terrorists. We're talking about the removal of a dictator who committed genocide, and murdered millions of his own innocent civilians. I think the US needs to put pressure on all countries with the same kinds of problems to fix themselves up. As for the laws which are allegedly "anti privacy" what are you so worried about unless you have something to hide. They're there to stop a terrorist attack which could kill thousands more.

Social: Limited monarchist. (I'm probably the only one here) Healthcare is a good thing. The death penalty is a good thing, but only for conclusively proved 1st degree murders. Even if you're going to put a guy away for life there's always the chance he'll get out somehow and start killing again. Manslaughter punishment should vary according to the case.

Country: United States of America

Religion: None by name, but I do have a definite system of beliefs.

Basically, I believe whatever I'd like to believe and do whatever I'd like to do. Morals come naturally to me, though. So despite my lack of distinction between good and evil, I dislike allowing others to suffer, and I like to see them happy.

I don't believe that death is bad. We continue to think (and more clearly, too) after we leave the physical world behind. Our selves are preserved (unless you have beliefs that would lead you to destroy your self, such as Buddists have). But the destruction of self may be beneficial because the soul is an expression of distance from absolute unity or God, as some people call it. Besides, no destruction of self, or anything else, can be permanent if it occurs outside of space-time.

I recommend that you ignore these blocks and just read my three-part summary:
Rule 1: Happy = Good, Suffering = Bad (Happiness, while not absolute, is something to work toward)
Rule 2: Self-limited existence (Master your self to rule your existence)
Rule 3: Hatred = Spiritual Suffering = Worst

I seek to control my self so that I may be perfectly balanced. Thus I would be free indulge myself in both ultimate unity and the imperfections of our world.

Political and Social: Anarchy or an incorruptible theocracatic alliance

If we could somehow get all the religions in the world to cooperate, then each person could be governed according to their own beliefs and those of the people they interact with. Everybody would get the treatment they want for themselves. I'm an idealist.

The Golden Rule usually doesn't work. Treat others how they want to be treated, not how you want to be treated. Maybe they don't want what is best for themselves anyway. In such extreme cases, treat them to what they need.

-I hope that made sense.-

I'll just post a part for now, I'll edit this later.

COUNTRY Mexico.

RELIGION [I like caps] I'm from Weak Atheism. Read the Wikipedia article please, I'm tired of explaining it. Why? Because I believe that there aren't enough reasons to believe in a god. I think that religion was first invented to give an explanation to things we couldn't explain, but through the ages its main purpose became to satisfy the humans' desire to feel superior and special, as well to have a comfortable life and to avoid the problems and fears.

POLITICAL I think that the government should only interfere to ensure the individual's safety and to protect his propriety, as well to guarantee social justice, which is the equal distribution of social guarantees and the lack of deep social differences, so I think that the government should interfere to avoid people exploiting others, to give everyone equal opportunities, and that no one has the right to use the natural resourses for his own benefit. I believe that everyone is born equal and that there shouldn't be social classes bellow middle, and that the difference between middle and high shouldn't be deep.

I'm against death penalty and I believe that criminals should pay retribution to society by reforming and becoming productive to it, being forced to work, and with limited freedom.

Religeon: I believe in my own diety, what makes sense, so on. I have my own religeon.

Political: Mostly democratic.

Social: I am a large supporter of gay marriage. I believe that there should be NO reason to bar homosexuals from marrying the same gender. Every arguement I have heard against homosexuality is about morals, and, well, NOT EVERYONE SHARES THE SAME MORALS.

Extreamly pro-choice. I belive everyone should have the right to choose what, or who, uses their body for whatever reason, and that goes for women and their fetii. No BORN human has the right to use someones body for whatever reason, even for survival. I believe that a fetus should not have this exclusive right. Women have and will abort, for many years, and we should make sure that they at least have a safe, clean option. However, if the fetus is viable and will live, I believe that it should be removed alive, even if it means being removed prematurely.

I am against UNNESSASARY animal cruelty. However, I am not against animal product or byproducts for food, as long as the animal does not suffer. I don't think a buck should be shot just for it's head to be mounted on a wall. I hate the idea of pumping chickens with hormones. I find it wrong to keep an animal caged up and abused. However, being a meat eater myself, I am not one of those psychotic actovists that spill blood on people they find out eat meat. I will buy Amish hens and meat products that state "Free roaming" because then I know the animal did not suffer.

I am for the death penalty. As a matter of fact, I am for eye for an eye. I find it unfair to the man, woman, or child, or the family of these victims, that they got killed, and their murderer is still alive. However, that is for consciously killing the person. If it was on accident, the one who has done such a thing shouldn't be punished so harshly, especially if it was something like the kid ran out into the road in front of the car and he could not hit the brakes soon enough.

Anti-war. At least, pointless wars. And most of them are. I believe that there are other ways of solving the problem first.

Pro-Euthanasia. On humans. Especially on those who are only in physical pain due to illness and will die anyways. It is their body, after all, and if they want to die, they should have that right.

Pro-drugs. Once again, it is their body. They should have that right to do whatever the hell they want to it, even if it is harmful.

Pro-Poly-Marriage. Just because someones morals state that marriage is for one person, that does not mean that everyone follows that. People should marry whoever they want, as long as it is a consentual marriage.

Yup, that's all I can think of for now. More to be added later.

I thought there was already a thread about this ALONG flippin' time ago? heh it was a joke...you know Napolian says flippin' heh-never mind... >.> <.<

Religion: My husband cant understand this, neither does his mother...I do believe in Jesus, I do believe that he was sent as a sacrifice so that we can be forgiven for the sins that Adam and Eve produced... or something like that. I DON'T believe in a hell; it was created by religious sects to scare people into believing in God. I do however, believe in Heaven. Its weird, but it's the truth. I do believe that Satan is a real spirit creature and not the product of a over imaginetive man thousands of years ago to scare people. I do believe in demons, but I don't believe in ghosts. I do believe that people have souls, but they die when humans die....they are not ever lasting. the bible says: "the living are councious that they will die, but the dead are concious of nothing at all"
I do beilive that the world will not be destroyed as most churches teach.. the bible says in pslams that the meek will inheirt the world..how will they do that if it is destroyed? I do believe in a God, and Jesus..but they are not one..but two seperate beings...Jesus' is the English translation of the Hebrew name Iesuah(i think it's spelled like that..im doing this off my brain) which means "Jehovah is Salvation" in fact...all the names in the bible that start with the letters "je" are from translations which have Jehovah in it...even the song that churches sing "Hallaujah" means "praise Jehovah"

but that is me, dont judge me :3 we all believe the way we do for a reason.

Political: I dont do politics..they are a load of crap....and jesus said that "my kingdom is no part of this world" so there for how can I take part in a system that will not last...they wont bring forth peace....its a load of crap..so i keep my own opinions to myself...im nutral :P

social: I dont hate anyone..and im not about to put my views on homosexuality and abotion and what not out cause well, i like everyone here...and i dont want to hurt anyones feelings.:3

then again i dont believe in abortion, its a sin to kill a living creature and a fetus is a living creature techincally by the seventh day when blood pumps though it's body...well seventh day or seventh week...i dont remember which x_o

Country:
United Kingdom.

Religion:
Agnosticism. Basically, I'm waiting for a sign and in the absense of such I can't possibly believe in any religion. Similarly I can't be an atheist. In this department I have an open mind but not one that is susceptible to humanly persuasion. If the next saviour beckoned to me I would most likely ignore them, unless of course they got me drunk on water.

That said, I do find myself from time to time talking to 'God'. I attribute this to the partial Christian schooling background I grew up amongst. I know the Lord's Prayer for example. Despite my agnosticism I can understand the need to talk to someone who knows everything and is always there. It's comforting. That doesn't mean I know such a being is there or not, it's like a child inventing an imaginary friend. That friend isn't real but provides a required outlet.
Plus, if there is a God then it's handy that I'm talking to them, if there isn't one then I've lost nothing by giving it a shot!


Politics:
I like politics. I enjoy learning about the way it works through the media and such because it's all complete bollocks! I, like many others, believe that if I was in charge of the country, it would be a damn sight better. However I can understand why things are the way they are, and I rarely get upset at a political decision on the news because I believe that the government isn't trying to do anything detrimental to their own country. Because that would be stupid.

I am hardly ever bothered about what happens in other countries as I consider it not my problem. I deem it easier to not give too much of a rat's arse. People get so emotionally involved with matters that have no bearing on their own lives, it's unbelievable! Crying at Princess Diana's funeral for instance. Why? Sure it was a tragedy and sad, but these people didn't know her personally, or had never met her. People die everyday. Do they cry for them? If they did, they'd have died themselves through grief.
Keeping detatched is my way of dealing with the world. And it's [img]http://forums.legendsalliance.com/public/ALOT.png[/img] more enjoyable and funny this way.



Social:
There are two things though that can get me emotional. I'm not totally devoid of feelings. These two things are animals and parent-child attachments.

I eat meat. So how can I care about animals? Well, if I'm eating it then it's served a purpose. This animal has given its life so I may eat it. I'm thankful. Beating an animal, hunting one for sport or any act of cruelty towards an animal (outside of it ultimately being eaten) I hate. An advertisement for an animal charity will result in me changing the channel as I will undoubtedly get upset at the commercial.

I have a strong link with my parents so anything on TV that shows a parent losing their child or vice-versa gets me choked up. Bambi was a double whammy. Though stangely enough I can watch an advert for child neglect and I'll feel nothing. Weird.


As for other stuff, I'm pro-choice and pro-gay. War doesn't bother me an awful lot unless it's taking place in my own country, or propaganda is sufficient enough for me to take sides. I firmly believe that a warring government SHOULD make up stuff about the other side in order to get the public united. Civil unrest at a time of war is stupid. For instance, WMD's should have been planted in Iraq so the invading countries would not have looked so damn ridiculous.

Country: USA

Political: Authoritarian… Since when did “freedom” become such a good thing? I think forms of fascism and monarchy are much better types of government. An extremely powerful, centralized government is what’s needed to run a country. People all need to be united under one idea. A country with different opinions is not truly one country. In other words… The United States are not United.

Religion: Personally, I am atheist, but… I believe that a country should ALWAYS have a state religion. There needs to be some sort of moral standard. A country cannot work without standards, because there is no other way people can agree on what is truly right or wrong. I think Catholicism, with a strong religious leader and strict doctrine, is the best way to go.

Religion and government should be combined in a perfect union. The leader of the government should be both head of the state and religion. And if not that, it should be something along the lines of the Pope and the Kings of Europe were in years past.

Social: Personally, I have nothing wrong with gay-marriage, abortion, whatever… But I think that, perhaps, if a country is mainly Christian that these things should be outlawed. I am 100% for the death penalty and I hate the idea of rehabilitating criminals. Criminals should either be killed or become slaves of the state.

In general, I think a country needs to be more uniform. I don’t believe that diversity is really a good thing.

War is a very good thing. But not a stupid war removing a perfectly good leader from his place of power…. Iraq, anybody? And when we defeat a country we shouldn’t just help them “get better” after we win, we should either conquer them or leave them to help themselves. It is not our duty to help others. If the Iraqis hated their leader so much, then it was their duty to have a revolution and do something about it, not the ours.

I re read the thread, and realised that I'd never posted what I believed, or if I did, it was lost long ago. Well, things have changed.

Country: Australia

Religion: Roman Catholic

Mah Passion. Although I"m the first to admit, I'm no theologan. I"m Cathoilc. Roman Catholic. I am however the son of a Catholic woman, and a Prodestant man. I"m glad I aint Irish. And I hang out with Pentecostals and Fundamentalists. Thats how I refound my faith. And I help out at my old highschools ministry.

Social:

Abortion. I see it as murder. However, It is not my body, and I believe in women having the right to choose. I dont want a law to be passed that restricts my bodily functions, even if farting is considered rude. I"ll fart anyway, and they'll just have illegal abortions.

But in my eyes, They murder their babies. I see it as if another Einstein is just waiting to be born and their mothers are denying them the right to exist.

Death Penalty: Against it completly, I"m so glad its illegal. (In Australia, it is. )

Pro Gun Control: I"m glad its illegal to own a gun. Our Crime rate has dropped dramatically. Our Murder rate has dropped even further. Now people have to think of inventive ways to kill.

Gay Marriage: I"m against it. However, Gay couples having the same rights as married couples, if they show geuine love commitment to each other I"m for. Its a basic human right. I"ve got Gay friends, and they deserve the same rights I do. The only real thing I"m against there is it being called marriage, which is a union between man, woman, and God. Plain and simple. (Which is why I think those who arent Chrisitans Or Jewish, even if they are man and woman, shouldn't get married, but have civil unions.)

War:

Huh, Good god yaw, what is it good for? Selling weapons.

I"m not anti war, nor am I a mongerer. If Conscription was brought back in, I'd fight for my country. (Doubt they'd want me, I''m both hearing and vision impaired, be about as usefulasa turnip.)

It a horrible thing, I've had family go to war, and seen the ramifications.

I dont know what I'd do If I was called to war. I dont have a clue.


Politics:

I listen in on whats happening in the country, because I live in Canberra and need to know whats going on.

I'll vote for what I believe in, not just going with party lines.

Capitalism/Facsim/Communisim/Nazism/Boobieism(Where Women rule and men are their slaves)/Macarthism


I"m none of those. I'd go for Gooseism. Where each person gets a cookie. Yeah, I'm up on the political issues, but being surrounded by politicians and their kids all the time, I know its just different ways of playing the game. The same game. The Power Game. Each has its strengths and its weakensses. I'd aim for the most balanced for all.
