Social issues:
* Abortion: Fully pro-choice, as long as it's in, it's ok to abort.
* Gay marriage: Make it chiefly the faith's choice. If the head of the faith says "ok", then it's ok. If not, then allow civil unions. Also, I'm for atheist and agnostic marriage only under these settings, too.
* Planned parenthood: Stop funding, just a waste of money. Get everything you need there at federal clins.
* Can a business deny customers based on faith? Absolutely. A business has the right to deny any customer service on any grounds whatsoever. Same with firing it. Anything else is taking away freedoms.
* Should health insurance give free birth control? It should not be forced, nor governmentally incentivised to. If you want a deal with birth control, then take a deal that has birth control. But forcing this is just taking away freedoms and making many folk pay for things they don't really want or need.
* Taking out refers to God on money, buildings, mottos, so on? Doesn't really matter. It's a part of the culture, on one hand, how and by whom the American government was founded, but on the other hand, it offends many flibbergiblet atheists. I go with take it out in future bills/buildings, but I don't really care.
* Death punishment? Yes, only for folk who have intentionally killed more than 2 folk with undeniable evidence. And not wasting loads of money doing it "humanely" - these are inhumane folk, just shooting them in the head.
* Should suicide be legalised? Yes. What you do to yourself should only be controlled by yourself.
* Should businesses be required to have women as managers? Absolutely not. The business can choose for itself, and if you don't like it, go start your own, where no men are hired.
* Women at war? Yes, women should be allowed to be on the frontlines as long as they pass the same tests that men have done to be there. What is this frain, even? Neo-sexism?
* Should states be allowed to fly the Confederate American flag? No. They are allowed to fly the state flag, or the government flag. Anything else doesn't represent what it is, not the Confederacy, but the state/country it is in.

Environment:
* Should government force environmental regulations? No, just regularly give money to businesses that are investing in long-time solutions like Sun and wind power.
* National parks? Should be kept as long as they are making profit. If not, allow more public access and/or more logging/mining.
* GMOs? Should be kept, but required to be labeled on foods.
* Hydraulic fracturing? Should be allowed, but not done by the government.
* Offshore petrol digging? Government-owned landed should be allowed to be leased to petrol businesses to dig upon for petrol.

Economy:
* Welfare? Rid it. Too many poor folk who just leech other folks' tax money and use it to buy drugs (since they're addicted). Now, if a person collapses out of hunger, then they can be taken to the clin.
* Minimum wage? Rid it. If you want to work for 0.25 $ each hour, works for me. You're still making over poverty line if you work 8 hours each day. And there can be more low-paying jobs than one high-paying job without minimum wage.
* Businesses should be forced to give full-time paid leave with childbirth or sick family member? Heck no. Businesses should not be forced by the government to do anything, especially money-losing ways like these. Businesses are going to be more reluctant about hiring pregnant women or folk with sick family members like that, and it's even harder for them to get by, then.
* Make cuts to public spending to lower national debt? Yes, definitely, along with other spendings (like military forces).
* Flat, progressive, or exponential income taxes? Progressive. There seems to be a very big misconception, here. Progressive taxes does not mean 50% taxes on the 5% richest. It means, for example, 10% taxes on everyone. The amount you pay gets "progressivesly" bigger: if you make 15,000 $, you give 1,500 $. If you make 150,000 $, you give 15,000 $. Also, government fines should be based on a percentage of income, like they do with driver tickets in Finland (something like 1% your income, which can be loads). I do not support anti-capitalist exponential taxes, which seek to make it harder to get richer, and are anti-business, as well as flat taxes, as they're going to disproportionately hurt the poor.
* Get rid of all taxes except ones for legal misdeeds (drugs (including alcohol), petrol, guns) and a small income tax? Yes. Also, nationalise those industries selling those misdeeds.
* Work unions? I'm for them, but they should have no legal or government backing. Just organised boycotts of being hired to businesses, that's all they should really be doing, and any more power to them is anticapitalist.
* Funding farmers? Heck no. Corporate farms are the future, and using everyone's money to fund some unsustainable randomly profitting job is not smart.
* Pension plans? Should be phased out from being governmental, and phased in to being corporate and by choice.
* Trans-Pacific Partnership? It's wonderful. Biggens the size of the capitalist arena, more competition. I love it, from what I've read of it.
* Bitcoin as legal currency? Nah, bitcoin is kind of shifty. It's not owned by any government, it's not even printed, it's real value is shifty, too (solving maths problems?). Just keep the USD, unless it gets popular elsewhere.

Home policy:
* Gun control: Legalise all kinds of guns and weapons, except for Bulk Wreck Weapons. Just tax them heavily. And of course, run whatever checks possible, no guns to violent crimers, and insanities.
* Time limits for congressmen? Yeah, let's not go mad here. 2 years should be fine.
* Should those hurt from gun violence be allowed to sue gun dealers? Yes, but gun dealers should not be guilty unless they sold to someone who was unchchecked.
* Should Apple unlock their telephones? Heck no.
* Legalise all drugs? Yes and free those in gaol for it, but nationalise the selling of them to heavily tax them; do not allow private selling of them.
* Should corporations and unions be allowed to donate to politic campaigns? Yes. It's going to happen one way or another, so might as well do it the way that gives the most freedom.
* Abolish the NSA, FBI, and CIA.
* Should internet sellers be allowed to speed up access to popular websites at the cost of slowing down access to less popular access? Yes, absolutely, it's their right and freedom as a business. If you don't like it, go to another internet seller, and they will lose your money.
* Affirmative action? Throw it out the window. Unfree, racist policy.
* Patriot Act? Throw it out the window. Don't need a police theode.
* Gerrymandering? No, each congressional district should be drawn by a proportion of how much each politic group got of the popular vote. So if a 500 member commission of mostly Democrats and Republicans, but also a few Libertarians and Greens should choose on this.
* Should government be able to take private land for public use? No, unless it is 100% by choice of the owners of the private land, or in an unlikely extreme case of national emergency (say the September 11 attacks happened again, re-purposing someone's nearby home as a makeshift clin since all the other ones are filled up would be ok).

Healthcare:
* Have it be 100% funded by taxes, and only for life-threatening situations would it do anything. In non life-threatening settings, a government loan can be gotten, like banks give, except with lower interest rates.
* Vaccinations mandatory? No, but fund public advertisments about the (hardly any) risks, misconceptions and goods involved, and also have vaccinations for spreadable illnesses be mandatory only if going to a public school (private school can choose for itself what its vaccination requirements, if any, are).

Foreign policy:
* Syrian refugees: America should accept as many as it can take - no limits, like in Germany. The goal of a government is to help folk. Stop.
* Should terrorist suspects still be shielded by human rights? Absolutely. It's one thing to "suspect" someone who thinks the government is bad is a terrorist, but to kill or torture them without try?
* Military spending? Lower it.
* Conscription? Heck no. I'm not for forcing folk to go to their deaths, that is very antigeneven.
* Middle East? Stop supporting all of these awful countries, just get out of their, and sanction most of them - Israel, Palestine, Turkey, Arabia, Iran, SAR, IT, IR.
* UN? Yeah, doesn't really matter if it stays in the UN or not, still nothing will get done. But when something is done, I think it's better that America be part of the answering team, and stop some genocides.
* Mexico? Get out of there, too, it's just greatening the overall violence.
* Drones? Fine to use only in war, but shouldn't be at war, anyway.
* Foreign help spending? Nah, cut it all, just fully open borders instead.
* Cuba? I support free trade, not curbed by government so yes, good that embargo on Cuba has been lifted.
* Choson? Build some good anti-missile defence nets in China, America, and Hanguk, otherwise, let Choson alone.
* Russia? Keep the sanctions (assuming America is doing less warring than them, tsh)
* Guantánamo: Rid it, though really, all Black Sites should be rid, too. Would be for Guantánamo would it not be doing something Cuba is telling America specifically not to.

Teaching:
* Student loans? Should not be coming from the government, otherwise I'm for. What I am for is basically accepting the top 10% (at maximum, but really, how ever much is affordable) scoring folk in the country and letting them choose go to federal higher schools for free.
* Schools should be by choice. A child who doesn't want to learn won't, so why waste money on them?
* Schools should get much more good teachers. A 5:1 ratio ought be good, noone can be forgotten about.
* Specific classes in schools should of course, be by choice, too.
* Grow funding for schools generally.
* Standardisation? Absolutely, what one learns in Bumblefaff, America should be applicable in Bumbefaff, Niger.

Immigration:
* Should noncitizens have access to free healthcare? Yes, since it would only give them emergency healthcare. They should be given loans, too, as long as it's forecast that it will likely be paid back.
* Muslims? Yes, should be allowed to come in.
* Grow border security? No, open borders to everyone.
* Should noncitizens be allowed to learn at federal schools? Yes, as long as they pay taxes and meet the same requirements as everyone else to go for free, or they pay the federal school enough money to keep a low student-teacher ratio, with good teachers.
* Required to learn English? No, but government documents should be written only in English, and part of citizenship should be to learn English (with exceptions for mad folk).
* Should noncitizens' children born on American land be given citizenship? Yes. Citizenship is a pretty outdated concept anyway, and most good stuff given to citizens only would be given to everyone; citizenship would mostly be just a title, maybe a tad less taxes to citizens, too. That's it.
* Working visas? Throw these anticapitalist things out the window. Anyone can work.

Miscellanous:
* Photo ID required to vote? Yes. I know that it stops poor folk from voting, and the only real grounds Republicans support it is since that's what it does, gets them more of the Republican demographic vote, but to stop vote rigging, I'll take it.
* Should alone cells be used for minor crimers and teenagers? It should only be based on the crime, and their behaviour in gaol, so not for minor crimers, but for teenagers, maybe.
* Space travel? I'm with Trump, abolish NASA. Private businesses can do that stuff if they want, but governments should not waste that money on it.

Hmm, maybe this was too long to read. TLDR version:

Sociality:
* Pro-choice.
* For civil unions of any two folk who want to unionise, also for marriage as long as the faith's clergy allows it.
* Rid Planned Parenthood, just replace with good sex teaching in schools, and shops that sell contraceptions, federally approved and not.
* Keep the death penalty, but only for crimes involving killing 2 or more folk with undeniable evidence, and no "humane" killing - just shoot them with a gun. What are you going to care, you're going to die in a few seconds anyway.
* Use a progressive tax, not a superprogressive or flat tax. What this means: Everyone gets to pay 5%, doesn't matter how rich or poor you are.

Environment:
* Fund alternative renewable energy projects (not alternative nonrenewable energy, like nuclear power).
* National parks? If making a profit, keep it as is. If not, allow more public access or using of the land (mining/logging).
* GMOs are fine with me, as long as they are labeled.

Economy:
* Abolish welfare.
* Abolish any mandates of who employers can hire (requiring women to be on board of directors, affirmative action).
* Abolish minimum wage.

Home policy:
* Involve a non-violent crime and psychologic check, and invoke a license system, but allow all weapons except Bulk Wrecking Weapons to be bought.
* Time limits for MPs: Yes, 4 years should be fine.
* Drugs? Legalise all them, and free anyone in gaol for them.

Healthcare:
* Build a system funded by taxes for drug reknacking sites and for healthcare in life-threatening settings. For non life-threatening settings, a low-interest (maybe 1%) governmental loan can be sent. To those who owe money to the government after the deadline, they will be barred from drugs, alcohol, and guns buying, and their hirer will have to pay 50% what you make to the government, and the interest rate will be raised to 10%.
* Vaccinations for contagious illnesses should be mandatory (and taxpaid).

Most importantly, Foreign/immigration:
* America should open borders to any immigrants.
* Under no circumstances should anyone have human rights violated: torture is absolutely not.
* Lower military spending.
* No military draft.
* Get out of the Middle East and put sanctions on every country there (assuming America is innocent now): Iran, Russia, Turkey, Israel, Arabia, IR, SAR, Mashriq, Base. Noone is a good little country there.
*Abolish NSA, FBI, and CIA.

Teaching:
* Found a system where the 5% or so (less if it's not able to be afforded; more if it is able to be afforded, but at maximum, 10% or so) best doing students get to federal higher school, taxpaid.
* For national and international standardisation of teaching.

Miscellaneous:
* Photo ID should be required to vote.
* Solitary confinement should be based only on crime done and behaviour at gaol.
* Abolish NASA.

But anyone with a gun with them can be asked to show a license, and if they do not have one, then their gun will be taken away.

Maybe gun dealerships should be privatised, though.

Economic war works far better than military war. I mean, I can't understand for-war folk. This was was started by bombing folk, helping rebels, and now you want to answer this by bombing folk and helping rebels?

About immigration, well, the point of a government is to help folk, that's it. Who cares about if it's economically good or bad? It helps. And with more competition, mm, that's good, too (it is economically good).

Antigeneven things obviously should not be done, I can't imagine any argument for them.

Abolishing NSA, FBI, CIA, well, these are getting information on you. On other folk. It's the foundation to build a police theode. If you speak out against the government, your internet seller might be cut. If you speak out more, maybe you'll be put in gaol, and if you speak out even more, you'll be killed. I hate that system.

Yes, there's no illegalising racism. Furthermore, it shouldn't be illegalised. It's stupid, but there's no grounds to illegalise it. And they lose money, when they turn folk away. It's not a good economic policy. Folk will boycott it, and capitalism will, as said, "run the course". Same with firing and work unions (or as work unions should be, they're OP as is).

Yes. I'm a hindu. The code of non-violence is the highest ethical code one can follow. I believe foremost in the sanctity of all life. Of the unborn child. Of the murderer. And of the small insect. There's no need to kill criminals when you can lock them up for the rest of their life, which in my opinion is worse than death. Freedom and free will is the essence of man's liberty and prison denies that fundamental right. What can be worse than that?

How would you like it, just for folk to die? Or maybe you want bigger healthcare.

Medicare and Medicaid are illegal. Get the government out of taking care of the sick and near-death. I don't trust the government not to push for euthanasia and "assisted" suicide. Privatize most of it. Get rid of the artificial state lines that prevent competition and don't force healthy young people to buy health insurance to subsidize the elderly.

For example your write that "* Syrian refugees: America should accept as many as it can take - no limits, like in Germany. The goal of a government is to help folk. Stop."

But before it sounds like you are against a gov. helping its own citizens?

"* Welfare? Rid it. Too many poor folk who just leech other folks' tax money and use it to buy drugs (since they're addicted). Now, if a person collapses out of hunger, then they can be taken to the clin."
^even assuming you are right about the drug use thing, you write too many poor, implying that you recognize that welfare is helping some folks.

I know it is somewhat picky, considering the wall of text, but the wording is extremely important.

"Yes, I'm for a government helping folk, not for wealth equalisation. I am for the government giving opportunities, not tax money."


You're probably left. I'm for giving folk emergency healthcare, but otherwise, the government should usually stay out of the market, and let capitalism do its good thing. I'm for letting folk grow and excel, which can not be done if you're taxing everyone to give a few things to only a small population; and if you tax the rich super-hard, their businesses will fail or they will move away.

i agree with you on most things except:
death penalty:what was thought was indeniable evidence 20 yearsw ago is now turning out ot be not so good, i think it will be the same and you can never be absolutely sure that the person your killing actually comitted the crime, if you go to jail under false conviction you can be released and given money by the government as reparations but with the death penalty you cant do that.
Progressive tax: i think the rich should be taxed a higher percentage, billionaires have more money than they could ever possibly use so why not tax them higher, they arent going to miss the money and the government does need it while the poor are going to miss every cent you take off of them and it doesnt do much for the government
Abolish welfare: welfare is good, without welfare there is an extreme gap between the rich and the poor (even bigger than now) and that doesnt turn out well, just look at russia in 1917 huge revolutions cause most of the population was starving to death while a select few had gold plated mansions
Minimum wage: without the minimum wage the workers will be exploited,companies will just charge 2 cents an hour like they do in china ( im exxagerating a little but its still not good)
guns: guns lead to shootings and inoccent dead people, its better for the country if their illegalised unless your a farmer with a license and only let weapons that can effectively be used in a farm, you dont need a flamethrower or a machinegun in a farm
Drugs: i kinda agree with you, but i think the very dangerous ones should be illegalised like krokodil for instance and for the less dangerous ones (like cocaine) the government should have ads advising not to use them just like with alcohol and tobacco and rehabilitation centers for drug users
Photo ID: for the reason you said before, it eliminates poor people from voting, everybody should be able to vote
Solitary confinement: this is a form of torture, it drives people crazy, under no circumstances should a prisoner be tortured like that

They were and are much too happy to give out death sentences, I am saying it should be stricter than it is now. I understand the concerns, and am for lowering the amount killed under death penalty.

i think the rich should be taxed a higher percentage, billionaires have more money than they could ever possibly use so why not tax them higher, they arent going to miss the money and the government does need it while the poor are going to miss every cent you take off of them and it doesnt do much for the government


A standard rate is taxing the rich higher, let's not be unfair, though. And most rich folk run businesses, and help the economy - but taxing them disproptionately higher means they get to spend less on businesses, and get to hire less, which really hurts the poor. Rich folk drive the economy as they are the economy. +superprogressive tax is less motivation to earn money, while under a good income disparity like there is now in America, the amount you get for what you work for grows exponentially; it's basically addicting you to excel, since each time you're getting more and more gain from it then you did for the same work growth (and that's rare, that things addict you to excel).

Abolish welfare: welfare is good, without welfare there is an extreme gap between the rich and the poor (even bigger than now)


What is so bad about income disparity?

and that doesnt turn out well, just look at russia in 1917 huge revolutions cause most of the population was starving to death while a select few had gold plated mansions


The 1917 revolution was started by communists, yes. But revolution further back, and assassination tries at kings was done not of just communism, but of the philosophy of regicide; that everything would be better once the king was dead. Folk Will (Narodnaya Volya) was based on just killing the king and founding a republic, not getting communism. Organised work unions had co-ordinated railroad strikes, and mistransportation and logistic mistakes to pile on that meant that some folk in Petrograd went hungry. And so the February Revolution began, and a week later, established the Petrograd Workers' Council and Russian Republic, and they had a power struggle.

The October Revolution began when the communists got confident enough to overthrow the weak Russian Republic. They stormed the Winter Palace and many folk had enough of the Soviets and the things they made worse (especially hurting the war effort - soldiers could basically choose not to obey orders and report their officer to their Soviet - punishment was none).

without the minimum wage the workers will be exploited,companies will just charge 2 cents an hour like they do in china ( im exxagerating a little but its still not good)


A worker can not possibly be exploited. If you don't want to work for 0.02 $ hour rates, then don't accept the job. Don't ruin it for folk that do. With minimum wage comes of course more jobs, too - they have more money (+money saved from not being pressed under superprogressive tax) to hire folk, and to make more money for themselves, and from more money they have, they hire more, and so on. It's a good cycle.

guns lead to shootings and inoccent dead people, its better for the country if their illegalised unless your a farmer with a license and only let weapons that can effectively be used in a farm, you dont need a flamethrower or a machinegun in a farm


The same problems from illegalising drugs are there for illegalising guns. I say legalise and tax both, and get rid of the problems. Ideally, what you say is best, but then folk will be left defenceless against those who get it from the black market.

i kinda agree with you, but i think the very dangerous ones should be illegalised like krokodil for instance and for the less dangerous ones (like cocaine) the government should have ads advising not to use them and rehabilitation centers for drug users


I am for legalising all them, but definitely for opening federal reknacking sites, though (and advertisments advising not to use them - maybe experimentally do it, and see if it's worth it, and if not, don't, and if yes, do.

for the reason you said before, it eliminates poor people from voting, everybody should be able to vote


But it doesn't "eliminate them", it's just a hassle for them. It's still very possible for them to vote. And furthermore, I'm not so much for democracy, and this is some grounds why: they probably won't have advised opinions, they'll vote on charisma and misconceptions over actual policies and issues. And to rid voter fraud, I'll take it (and to rid poor voters, the Republicans will take it).

this is a form of torture, it drives people crazy, under no circumstances should a prisoner be tortured like that


Hmm, maybe you're right.

not really theres plenty of countrys where guns are illegal and there are none of the same problems that are happening with drugs in the US, its not the illegalization that causes the problem its the war on them, making them illegal just keeps it out of the hands of most people, the war on drugs is what has made it so violent. A civilian with a gun is more likely to get shot and killed by a trained criminal than the other way around and the civilian with a gun is more likely to get shot than the civilian without a gun as the civilian with a gun is seen as more of a threat so having a gun does more bad than good

Having a gun does help you when you have to organize a militia against rioters (1993 Koreatown) , you have to protect your neighborhood from police (Black panthers monitoring police in black neighborhoods), or fight the government (Waco).

The government has infringed on the rights of humans too far already in the name of progress.

In some cases it helps but overall it does more harm than good

Overall trying to ban guns would not work, end in more bad than good and give the government more power over its populace when it clearly has quite enough,
