In my opinion no consenting adult should be told that he/she can't marry another consenting adult.  With that I am in favor of gay marriage as well as polygamy.  As long as everyone in the relationship are consenting adults I see no issue.

As for abortion, I don't think anyone has a right to tell a woman what she can or cannot do with her body.  With that being said I do believe that once the fetus is viable on it's own (between 24-27 weeks gestation) that abortion should only be used for medical necessity such as if there could be a complication that could potentially harm the woman or there is something wrong with the fetus that would mean it wouldn't have much of a life.  I am on the fence about aborting due to reasons such as Downs Syndrome.  While I wouldn't abort for that reason that doesn't mean every family would be able to handle something like that.

I can't stand either party anymore to be completely honest.  I was staying hopeful that after this election that things would change but they haven't.  I think that the 2 party system as we know it needs to be dismantled and that politicians should run on their own merit not under the umbrella platform of the party that they choose.

The War in the Middle East needs to end.  Osama Bin Laden has been killed and there are more pressing issues here in the US that need to be addressed.  Bring our troops home!  We had no business in Iraq and we no longer have any business overseas anymore.

The budget needs to be balanced.  With that I think that there needs to be a line by line done on everything that the US spends.  From there find the waste and drop it.  No asking for permission, if we don't need it we don't need it.

euthenasia :)  I agree with it.  I think that at a certain point some people should choose if they live or die as long as their are coherent or had a will drafted stating they want to be euthenized at a certain part.  

I am a gun owner but I will say I think there need to be limitations.  Back ground checks, registeration for both guns and the gun owner and gun licenses.  

The Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) has it's issues but I think that it sets a great path for Universal Healthcare which is needed in this country.  That and it isn't really that different from Romneycare which was embraced in Massachusetts.

Corporations are not people, period.
