I too would've gone with Ron Paul. I felt like he had some good ideas, and our country really needs to get it's change on. However, left with the choice between Romney and Obama, I'd go with the latter, since I feel like he's the lesser of the two evils so to speak.
I don't really identify with any political party. I don't really believe a divided house can stand; we should be working together to make this country a better place for everyone rather than catering to the best interests of a certain subgroup of people while the rest are getting screwed.
I'm totally down with immigration, so long as it's the legitimate kind. "A flag of many colors is what this nation's all about." I don't really support all that illegal border hopping though. If you want in, do it the official way.
I'm not really educated enough on the subject to really state my position on stem cell research.
I'm more of a pro-life kinda guy, but I could settle for situational abortion under some pretty dire circumstances. I don't feel like you should be able to decide who gets born and who doesn't. I'm alright with contraception, because you're stopping anything from happening, but once it's happening, I don't feel like you should have the right to stop it.
I actually didn't even know free trade was an issue to be honest. I don't really know what's going on there.
I hate how imperialistic this country's become. George Washington warned that we should shy away from foreign entanglements, and I couldn't agree more. I don't think we should be invading wherever willy-nilly, and I'm also not a fan of having US military bases all over the world.
I also didn't know diplomacy was a big issue, either. I guess it'd be good to at least hold some friendly relations with foreign countries. So... yeah.
I totally believe gays should have the right to marriage. There's way too much religion in politics. This is the land of the free, where all men and women are equal in the eyes of the law. There's just no excuse for all the **** homosexuals get strung up with. Even if you have a problem with gays, just leave them alone and let them do their thing. Folks are just so quick to meddle where they ought not to. Just give them their equal rights and leave em' be, I say.
Also, at the guy above me, this nation wasn't founded on Christian principles, it was founded on the belief of religious freedom; our Founding Fathers never wanted a Christian nation where other religions were simply tolerated, they wanted a nation where all religions were equal. Most of the stories about the Founding Fathers being staunch Christians are just myths and fairytales. I think it was Thomas Jefferson who actually edited all of Jesus' miracles out of the New Testament, calling his revises version of His teachings "sublime." Anyway, yeah, no.
