ISSUE POSITIONS listed from FAR LEFT to FAR RIGHT

ABORTION
Full reproductive rights for women! Only appoint pro-choice judges to Supreme Court and extend abortion rights!
Keep abortion as it is presently. Safe, legal, and rare. Keep partial-birth abortion legal.
Protect responsible choice. Ban partial-birth abortions except in the case of life of the mother.
Abortion is not an issue for government intrusion. Oppose government control over abortion. Leave it to the states.
Some restrictions on abortion. Allow abortions in cases of rape, incest, or life of the mother. Ban partial birth abortions.
Only allow abortion in cases where the mother's life is at risk. Ban partial-birth abortion.
Abortion is murder! Total ban on abortions including rape and incest.

CORRUPTION
Socialism has corrupted our system! The system needs to be completely rebuilt.
The Republicans are completely corrupt.
The Republicans are more corrupt than Democrats.
Both parties are corrupt. We need better oversight and reform.
The Democrats are more corrupt than Republicans.
The Democrats are completely corrupt.
Socialism has corrupted our system! The system needs to be completely rebuilt.

DEFENSE SPENDING
Defense spending should be reduced so as to focus on other things. No overseas deployments.
The armed forces are using too great a percentage of the budget. Cancel unneeded future weapons systems.
Reorganize the armed forces to deal with modern threats. More ground forces and less emphasis on air & naval assets.
The military is in a solid position right now but could use additional ground forces.
The military needs additional funding, but not all future and current weapon systems are required.
The military requires a major expansion in capability to deal with potential conflicts with Russia and Iran.
The armed forces must be capable of fighting a multiple-front war including engaging with China.

EDUCATION
Completely public school system run by the state. Massive increase to funding.
No school vouchers, large increase to federal funding. Modernize school system with more after-school programs.
Make teachers accountable with performance based pay. Increase funding. Remain open to options such as charter schools.
Support public school system but allow room for vouchers.
School vouchers for lower-income students. Privatize failing schools. Charter schools provide competition.
Support school vouchers and charter schools. Reduce federal government's role in education.
School vouchers for anyone. Get the federal government out of education completely!

ENERGY
Renewable energy all the way! Ban all polluting forms of energy like oil and coal.
Move towards energy independence focussing mostly on renewable energy sources. Subsidize clean energy.
Invest in clean energy and end oil company subsidies. Cut oil use significantly by 2025.v
Renewable and non-renewable energy must be equally researched.
Reduce dependence on foreign sources of oil. Some research on alternate energy sources.
Coal and oil are our main concerns right now. End dependence on foreign energy. Let private funds research other energy.
We don't need to worry about renewable energy sources. Oil is king!

ENVIRONMENT
The environment should be our first national priority. Expand National Park System. Large government programs.
The environment and gobal warming is a major concern. Ratify Kyoto. Increase environmental regulations and pollution cleanup.
We need to leave a healthy environment for our children. Work to reduce emissions and harmful toxins. Modified Kyoto.
Balance environmental policies with sound economic policies.
The environment is important. Find market based solutions to environmental problems.
Economic policies and priorities take precedence over environmental concerns.
The environment is fine. We don't need to worry about it.

FREE TRADE
Protect the American labor market. Punish companies that send jobs overseas and end free trade.
Increase taxes on companies that send jobs overseas. Free Trade must include labour and environmental conditions.
Consider new free trade deals carefully, and create incentives to keep jobs in America.
Free Trade is doing fine as is. The American corporate and labor culture is coping.
Outsourcing is not a problem, it is part of a globalized world and helps America. Additional free trade agreements.
By outsourcing the U.S. frees up a lot of laborers to go on to better jobs. Global free trade would only help America.
We need to encourage businesses to do whatever is necessary to generate profit.

GOVERNMENT SPENDING
A deficit and debt is fine. Focus on social programs and how the government can better people's lives.
Increase government spending on social programs, a deficit is acceptable for longer term gain such as the New Deal.
Focus on real priorities. More funds for military and social programs.
Balance lowering the deficit with other priorities. No long-term deficits.
We need to curb spending in order to balance the budget. Respect taxpayers' dollars.
A large decrease in federal spending. A Balanced Budget Amendment to ensure responsible fiscal management.
Deficit spending should be outlawed as overall government spending is reduced to minimal levels.

GUN CONTROL
Ban all guns!
We need gun control! Ban certain guns. Require registration/background checks. Gun control protects children.
The right to bear arms, but only responsibly! Ban assault rifles, require registration/background checks.
Gun control is a state issue. Responsible gun ownership is fine.
We should be wary of gun control. The Second Amendment protects the right to bear arms.
Gun ownership is constitutionally protected. Protect sportsmen's rights and the Second Amendment.
The Second Amendment is not negotiable! No restrictions on firearms!

HEALTHCARE
We need a completely public health care system! Publicly funded, universal health care insurance. Health care is a right!
Universal health care system with mandates in order so everyone is covered.
Near-universal health care whether public or private, but no mandates. Require health insurance for every child.
Public health care benefits for the poor and elderly, the rest private.
More tax-deductable health costs. Very limited public health services. Give health coverage to uninsured children.
Massive payroll tax increase (or reduce Medicare/Medicaid spending) to fund tax credits for healthcare.
The health care system should be completely private, it is not a responsibility of the federal government.

IMMIGRATION
Completely open borders. Try to obtain global citizenship.
Immigration is great! The more immigrants the better. Just require a criminal record check. Full blanket-amnesty.
Legal immigration is great. Support guest-worker program for illegals and amnesty.
