Where do you stand on the following issues? This is really intended to be a debate thread but I imagine it will become one. Try to keep the debate civil. Thanx Social Security- Unfortunately this program has become a problem. I think what once was intended to be a safety net is no longer just that. I favor private accounts. Abortion- I oppose abortion. I agree with the declaration of independence that said it is the governments job to protect LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I also deny the opinion that the baby is the mothers body. I may be dwelling in the body but it is its own person and its own body and must be protected. Seperation of church and state- The Government shall make no establishment of religion. Illegal Immigration- I disagree with Bush on this one. This act must be stopped. I support the use of troops to help patrol the border. Death penalty- Should be used in instances of murder, rape, and child molestation. Iraq- I support our commander-in-chief, the generals on the ground, and our troops. I hope that this will turn out for good. Education- We keep spending more and more money. The kids performance is dropping. We need reform badly. Encourage the use of private schools. World hunger- I think instead of spending bookoo amounts of money that won't fix the problem, we need to encourage capitalism in these countries. Health care- Costs way to much. I think Government should keep its hands off. Same sex marriage- No marriage. Possible civil unions but that should be left up to individual states. Farm subsidies- I have a hard time with this one considering I live in Iowa. But I think it should be a system of survival of the fittest. If you need further explanation I will provide. Animal rights- They taste pretty good. Gun contol- I am in total support of the second amendment. Eminent Domain- The latest decision by the Supreme Court was very wrong imo. Cuba- I have a hard time with this one too because I don't see how we can ban relations with them but China is such a great partner in trade. They have bad human rights violations also.
