Just so we know each others' core beliefs, go ahead and post your:

-> Nationality-American, no surprise there.

-> Basic political tenants-registered Democrat, moderate in ideology

-> Religion agnostic-leaning atheist.

-> Major issues you believe in
-That religion, gay rights, abortion, and all those social issues are NOT things the government should be dealing with.
--religion is personal
--who you love is a right of all people and marriage is a secular institution
--abortions are personal decisions to be made by the woman(and the father if there is one), not some rights group a thousand miles away.
-That governments should be afraid of their people and not the other way around.
-That all people should have basic medical coverage, and not the kind where they're forced to pay insane private corporation costs for crappy coverage.
-That the death penalty is still useful.
-that our freedom is the most important thing we have.
-that the existance of two giant corporations does not mean neither has a monopoly.
-that public schools and a good education is second only to our freedom.
-that higher taxes may be required of us to better our country
-that the government needs to be smaller and more focused.
-that higher education should be FAR easier to afford, and that race should be meaningless, only your performance and goals matter.
-that american workmanship used to be something to be proud of, now thanks to unions and corporations it's total not, but it should be.
-many, many others.

Nationality: American.

Political Views: I'm a Conservative. I wouldn't call myself a Republican, with the crap the Republican Party is fielding this coming election, I'd ALMOST rather have a Democrat. Almost.

Religion: Non-Denominational Protestant Christian.

Major Issues:

I'm Anti-Choice. Pro-Life. Whatever. This is my really big one. Few things make my stomach churn as much as this. You had sex and got pregnant. 99% chance it's your fault, and if you got raped, it's probable that the stress of it would cause you to miscarry anyway. Cases of Rape and Incest my ass. Women don't have the right to kill their kids because they're an inconvenience, there's an adoption system in place for a reason. Also, why should the kid have to pay because Dad's a bastard?

Anti-Affirmative Action. It's Racist. Sexist, too. Why should race or sex play a factor in where you can get hired or taught? It has nothing to do with it. It should be a meritocracy. People make way too much of racism nowadays, it's more or less stamped out. At least, when it comes to whites hating.

Pro-Video Games. Screw you Hillary. Even if I didn't loathe all your other views, that one alone would mean you'll never see my vote.

Anti-Illegals: They come crawling over the border, why can't they bother to learn our language or get a visa? It's not that I have a problem with people coming to America, I can understand why you would want to share in the bliss that is the United States of America, but please, do it legally.

Pro Patriot Act: Okay, not really Pro-Patriot Act, more like ambivalent. People whine about it, but let's face it, I don't think anyone who complains about it has ever actually noticed it in action.

Anti-Conspiracy: No, I don't mean I'm Anti-Shadow Government, I mean I hate crap like Loose Change. I love the Shadow Government. Smoking Man is like an uncle to me. But seriously, the fact that anyone has survived posting one of these theories is proof enough that they're wrong. If they were right, black-suited men would have arrived at their door, shot them, burned the bodies, killed anyone who had heard, and deleted all evidence. If they're evil enough to attack their own country for some kind of poorly established personal gain, they'd have no compunction towards doing that.

I believe in the ideas of Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Adam Smith, Alexander von Humboldt, Bakunin and so forth. I don't entirely agree with any of them. I strongly advise you to read these people.
Yes! I thought I was the only Libertarian Socialist (Anarcho-Communist/Syndicalist) here! Life is getting better.

Nationality:
American

Political Views:
Libertarian Socialist, Libertarian Communist, Anarcho-Syndicalist, Anarcho-Communist (or: Anarchist)... there's a lot I would be "considered". I'd rather be recognized as an individual and not as a statistic in a group though.

Religion:
Buddhist/Agnostic (Lots of Taoism in the mix)... used to be a christian... I'd rather call my mutt of religion: spirituality.

Major issues I believe in:

There's a hell of a lot of "Anti's" in there. Read up on - Buenaventura Durruti, Emma Goldman, Peter Kropotkin, Karl Marx, and Noam Chomsky. You'll get an idea.
First and foremost, I strive for Peace, Tolerance, Equality, Anti-Fascism, and Anarchism. Pro-Earth and Animal Rights too... but, everyone probably already knew that.

Actually, you'll find that The United States of America owns Puerto Rico. Your independence is a matter of American generosity.

Yeah, pretty big screw-over you don't have to pay federal taxes, are US citizens, make a fair chunk of your money from US tourism, maintain your public works through US dollars and are self-governing in all but name, isn't it?

1) We pay taxes … it’s already added in the article exported… plus we pay 7% more for the government.
2) I can ask for the Puertorrican citizenship … we have one because the Spanish before leaving they left us with our own citizenship … but many people use the US citizenship.
3) Uhhh Americans aren’t the only ones that come here my friend: We have Colombians, Holland’s, Germans, Spanish, Portuguese’s and many other people from different nationalities.
4) U.S.A dollar is going down man … Canadian dollar passed US money.
5) Uhh we might have a inept governing us in the name of U.S.A and he is pretty corrupt. (People felled for his lies)

Come on … you Americans fought for you’re freedom and you guy’s believe in freedom right? … then, where is our freedom … the U.S.A keeps lying to my people until one day … my people will not fall again for the governments lie and they will revolt.

And you guy’s say that let PR choose … well in the 90’s the people choose to be a state and the congress ignored completely … thanks god people are thinking now and seen the real government and the cover ups they do.

Major issues I believe in: Individual freedom, states' rights, federalism, seperation of church and state, non-interventionism, constitutional government, personal independence, egoism, national defense, abolition of the welfare state, fair taxation, capitalism. I also strongly support the right to own firearms, which I think is a cornerstone of modern democracy.

I could almost be called an objectivist, but I disagree with Rand on a few points. I think protective tariffs may be necessary in the near future to help rebuild American industry, and I think co-operation with those who follow different ideologies is necessary in politics, whether I give them a "sanction" or not.

Wow, we're about on the same page! Cool!

Nationality - American

Political - Libertarian all the way! Favorite quote about politics - "Republicans campaign like Libertarians, then rule like Democrats." In other words....HYPOCRITES!

Religion - Existential Deism.

Major Issues -
  • Individual Freedom
  • States Rights
  • Anti-Welfare State
  • Anti-Nationalized Healthcare
  • Fair Taxation
  • Pro-Capital Punishment (in public)
  • Smaller Government (basically says it all)
  • Anti-Global Warming Hysteria
  • Pro-Capitalism
  • Separation of Church and State
  • Pro-Gay Rights
  • Pro-2nd Amendment
  • Anti-Helmet and Seatbelt Laws - Let Those Who Ride Decide (adults, of course)
  • Anti-Affirmative Action
  • Neither Pro-Choice nor Pro-Life. Government should have never gotten involved in a medical decision between doctor and patient.

I support this message.

I think that Abortion, being on some level an act of violence, falls under the jurisdiction of the individual states.

Damnit, the southerner in me is coming out again...

"Redder?" Huh?

Well, I'm damn sorry that the U.S. did not think of what your future wishes would be when they won the war. I'm also sorry that you see America as always getting richer and taking more no matter what - I know that, of course, Spain was so much different then too.

You don't like it, why don't you move to Spain?

Thanks! I think abortion should have stayed in the doctor's office and not in the public arena. I do have a problem with women who use it as birth control, but for those women who have been advised by their physician to consider it in, say, cases of life-and-death for the mother, it should be an option. Late term abortions are the most heinous in my eyes. I mean, you should know far in advance of the last trimester whether or not you're going to do it.

Virtually everything that government has gotten its hands into has been ruined. Their involvement has caused abortion-on-demand, under achievement in education, and a huge tax burden on the citizens. Minimalism in government is the way IMHO.
