100% libertarian. And you?
I ended up a right leaning libertarian, no suprise. I do not support the legalization of drugs, in any way. If you legalize controlled substances, then you put things like lithium, mellaril, and thorazine in some pretty dangerous hands. And if we legalize drugs, then we have to make mandatory prescriptions optional. Too much potential for disaster.
Bro. Curtis, should beer be legal?
Good question. I can only answer that there are folks who are ordered to not drink anymore, under penalty of the law. I support that law. I don't drink, but I know several good Christians that do, on occasion, enjoy an adult beverage.
Should thorazine be legal and available for recreational use ?
"Beer" is "beer" is "beer." But I admire your honesty and lack of dogmatism.
Laissez faire regards,
And what about abortion?
And what about abortion?
And wouldn't the military draft return if World War III really breaks out?
And do we really want to legalize prostitution?
O.K., I thought about it, and have a response, and even based it on personal experience. I have lots & lots of experience with juvinile delinquents, in a secure setting, and have witnessed literally thousands of reactions to psychotropic drugs. (And reactions to NOT taking them, which are just as intense, believe me)
And, as a professional musician, I used to play in night clubs, and bars, so I have a lot of experience with really drunk people, of varying size & disposition.
Give me the drunk, any day. Best to control those heavy mind medications.
I know you didn't ask me, but I don't have any problem with alcoholic beverages being legal, but for all the damage the abuse of alcohol does to our society, I believe it should be more heavily taxed.
A $3 beer should be $12. I believe retail prices about 400% higher than now with taxes accounting for all but 15% of the cost would be about right.
Carpro wanting a TAX INCREASE?!? Are you leaning to the left?
Just kidding.. I understand your logic and it does make some sense, I just had to say it..
Your pun was well deserved on my part.
Just taking my cue from the attack on cigarettes.:thumbs:
BTW I'm a non-smoker.:saint:
My test scores
90 on personal issues
40 on economic
It thinks I am a Liberal
Centrist...I am stunned, I was certain that I was somewhere in the middle...:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
I've taken half a dozen of these things the answer is always the same. Sometimes a little right of center, sometimes a little left of center.
But always a centrist.
OK guys, this does not invalidate the test. :laugh:
Many times I post as a contrarian. My positions on some complex social issues is decidedly moderate whether you realize it or not. But not when it is contrary to scripture.
I'm not really a Bush supporter, but he gets unfairly dumped on so often that I am compelled to defend him. I was a supporter, and still am on certain issues, but he has deserted conservatism almost completely.
I'm not happy about that.
Still, given the two choices we had in 2004, he was absolutely the right choice. No regrets at all on that score.
right leaning centrist. Some questions were iffy though.
Too late HC...I already read it.
But...I don't think 4 questions are really an adequate sample to obtain a result.
Personal 80%, Economic 30% puts me well to the left of center.
I'm not surprised.
70% Personal, 90% Economic - Liberterian.
No surprise, but this is indeed too brief and too simplistic to be accurate, although I do consider myself a conservative mild liberterian.
But should taxes be used to discourage behavior/encourage behavior? Is that what the founders really intended? I tend to think no. I believe taxes are to fund the government. If something should be illegal, it should be illegal, not taxed to death. Just my two cents (even after indexing for inflation). :laugh:
1) Abortion is wrong.
Btw, I feel silly answering rapid fire questions with rapid fire responses. Shouldn't each one of these topics have its own thread for more serious discussions?
