Evolution or Creation (or both)?: One's a theory, the other's a philosophy

Immigration Policies: Limit immigration as necessary, check illegal immigration by imposing fines on businesses that hire them and pay them a substandard wage

Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No
Professional Goal: Be sucessful
What is your favourite genre of music: Jazz (Real Jazz, not the smooth stuff)
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English
Other information: Nope
Abortion: Divided opinion. I'm generally against abortions, except in life-threatening cases or rape, and always against late term abortions
Affirmative Action: Against in all forms in the Western World.
Aid (International): For increased international aid to the poorest nations in the World, and continued support to poor nations and those hit by natural disasters, war, and corruption.
Arms Trade: While it should be heavily regulated, I see no problems with private military corporations existing.
Death Penalty: Against in all cases, the life penalty is much better.
Drones: They are needed in today's high-tech combat, but shouldn't be abused like they are currently in the Middle East.
Drugs: Legalize Marijuana and other soft drugs if they have been determined to have minimal danger to the person taking them. We can then tax the drugs and make a profit off of it, allowing us to divert the money towards education and healthcare.
Economic System: Moderatly regulated Capitalism or Mixed Market
Education: One of the Highest Priorities. Divert more funds to Education, weaken the public Teacher's Unions greatly, and institute tougher standards for teachers.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Bad, it is an outdated system, and should be replaced. We should have Alternative Vote for Presidential Elections and MMP for Congressional Representations. Gerrymandering should also be banned and the ban heavily enforced.
Environmentalism: Moderate Disdain. Perhaps its my Republican background, but I always found most Environmentalists to be idiots. I of course support Environmental Regulation, but in many cases they support major overregulation and types of renewable energy which can be worse than fossil fuels for a variety of reasons. They seem to believe that solar and wind can completely replace fossil fuels at its current stage of development, and that is just not possible. They will also often fearmonger against nuclead, which is amazingly ignorant and harmful.

Not that there aren't some good environmentalists, but they are often few and far in between.
Euthanasia: Legalize, though with doctor's approval.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution should be the only theory taught in schools, for the sake of seperation of church and state. I myself believe in Intelligent Design.
Gay Marriage: Legalize
Gun Control: I support background checks and other "Common sense" regulations, but don't overregulate it.
Immigration Policies: A reform to make the path to citizenship more understandable and easy is definantly needed. Right now our Immigration system is essentially a jumbled mess. I also support a loosening of regulations when the economy is good and tightening when we go through economic troubles.
Income Tax: I support a progressive tax, and also support keeping the tax low, specifically for the middle class.
Iran: Help the people of the nation, keep a close eye on Iran. If we find any evidence of them developing missile guidance systems capable of directing a nuclear bomb at surronding nations, bomb their military infrastructure.
Israel/Palestine: Try to convince them to recognize the other nation and work out a clear-cut border.
LGBTQ Rights: Full rights on par with Straight rights, including marriage. Against mandatory trans bathrooms.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): I am generally centrist and I rarely adhere to a single ideology or philosophy, though I do lean Libertarian. I try to take away most emotion (though not Morality) when solving problems, and rely totally on logic.
Political Party Affiliation: None
President Obama/American Policies: I dislike President Obama and his policies. He has bumbled foreign policy greatly and Obamacare was very poorly thought out. In my opinion, he is only barely above Bush in competence.
Prostitution: Legalization and regulation.
Religion: A good thing most of the time, though it can be used for power, evil, and control. Organized Religion has the sad habit of falling into that.
Social Security (Welfare): For a light safety net. Perhaps it should be more job-focused than help focused for most.
The UN: It bumbles alot of things, specifically the security council, but it is overall a great force for good, and helps brings peace and security to this world.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I don't know how Vegans can stand not eating meat and cheese. I practically live off of it! But hey, if they want to do that, I couldn't care less.
War on Terror: We have greatly hurt Al Quaeda and other terrorist cells, and we are safer than ever. However, we continue to anger the Middle East with our borderline imperialistic attitude towards them, which is causing an increase in terrorism and tension between us and the Middle East. What we need to do now is mostly pull out of the Middle East, and let the situation cool off.

New Frenco Empire
Picture: I think this is an accurate depiction of my RL self
IM Contacts: Nope
Political Beliefs (i.e. name your ideology, if one applies): No individual ideology really speaks to me. Keynesianism economically. I see myself supporting a benevolent fascism or autocracy of some sort politically. Socially, I'm a moderate with mostly left leanings in areas such as LGBT, minority rights, abortion, but some pretty big right-wing opinions on things regarding crime and foreign policy.

The New Frenco Empire
Real Name: Nah
Age: 17
Gender: Male
General Location: USA
General Political Affiliation [if any]: N/A
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Antitheistic-Atheist-Agnostic
Where Did You Find NationStates?: Another site. Fuck that site, NS is better.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No, unfortunately. I'm trying to get my hands on JG.
Professional Goal: To be somebody. At the very least, have a page about me on Wikipedia.
What is your favourite genre of music: Punk Rock, Indie Rock, the big hybrid genre the Gorillaz belongs to, old vocal tracks (Henry Burr, The Ink Spots, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, etc.)
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English.
Other information: I'm usually only half serious.

Abortion: Fetuses aren't people. Stick a coat hanger in and be done with it, if you really need to.
Affirmative Action: Meh. Good intentions, terrible results at times. I tend to think less on what I feel about it and more on why we would need it in the first place. I can't sympathize with the right-wing crybabies who always whine about it, and I can't support the over-sensitive liberals who praise it.
Aid (International): As long as we can ravage their resources, sure.
Arms Trade: Sure, as long as we're getting paid good.
Death Penalty: Justice > Rehabilitation
Drones: The future of warfare. They're deployed a little ineffectively at times, sure, but anyone who's against them is flat-out wrong and must prefer it if more soldiers die. I'm also intelligent enough to know that, despite popular belief, drones aren't Obama's tool for taking away your freedom to masturbate in privacy. I can't believe I had to say that.
Drugs: Marijuana and other soft drugs should be legal and regulated. Keep the others away.
Economic System: Social Capitalism
Education: Should be a government priority.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Fuck democracy. ObamaDictator#2016
Environmentalism: I like animals, too, but human needs outweigh those of nature. I'm more of a conservationist.
Euthanasia: Well, I'd rather we attempt to treat, but it should be legal.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution.
Gay Marriage: It offends me! It offends God! GAYS ARE ICKY! But seriously, all for. No rational reason to be against.
Gun Control: Extreme regulations. Sorry, I just don't have the love affair with guns a lot of Americans do.
Immigration Policies:
Income Tax: Taxation isn't theft. Taxation is rent.
Iran: I hear they're getting better. Still, can the CIA just do the cool breach of human rights freedom stuff it does to other foreign threats?
Israel/Palestine: Israel for state #52. Palestine can sodomize itself with a freedom dildo! Now, come on Puerto Rico...
LGBTQ Rights: LGB, no question. A 'B' not supporting his rights sounds pretty dumb. T, of course I support their right to be recognized as their preferred gender, though the transgender condition confuses the hell out of me with all the social gender binary hoohah it has going on.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Hedonism
Political Party Affiliation: I'll more than likely register Democrat.
Prostitution: It should be legalized, and regulated as well.
Religion: I'm all for sending secret police to burn churches and arrest priests, but I'm not too unethical. Let's just try to be more secular, and wait for this mythology to whither and die.
Social Security (Welfare): I'm all for it, assuming there are fair checks for abuse and job training available to those on it.
The UN: New World Order ruled by lizardmen, obviously.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Humans are natural omnivores. I can't stop you, but I'm no monster for eating a steak.
War on Terror: I'm for it, but I feel we're going about it the wrong way. Stop bombing Pakistan, use the drones in actual terror hotspots, and show no mercy with the Navy Seal raids.

Picture: I really dont think anyone would want to look at me.
IM Contacts: Nope
Political Beliefs (i.e. name your ideology, if one applies): Its much more easy for other people because they can say "Social democrat" or something, I can't. I am very left leaning socially, but I see absolutely no reason those rights and the influence of them should not be defended and spread with a military. The closest you would get to a short definition is Liberal/Socialist Militarist or something, I'll explain the rest on the next few bits.

Real Name: Joe, lots of clues I've left about, even my prime ministers name.
Age: Nope.
Gender: Male
General Location: UK
General Political Affiliation [if any]: None.
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Anti-religion Atheist
Where Did You Find NationStates?: I can't remember, too long ago.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No.
Professional Goal: No clue.
What is your favourite genre of music: Industrial metal, drum and bass. Lots of classical too.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English, a small amount of German.
Other information: I am obsessed with military equipment and other things related.

Abortion: I don't care what you do with that thing, it is inside of you anyway. Do what you like with it.
Affirmative Action: Shouldn't really have to happen in the first place, but whatever.
Aid (International): Not really that optimistic unless there are some nice resources there.
Arms Trade: Depends on who we are selling too and what they will do with those weapons.
Death Penalty: Some people need to be shot.
Drones: Are very useful in warfare. Drone tanks are the next thing I imagine, means you get more armour and firepower since you don't have to make exceptions for the crew. Might be practical for police use too.
Drugs: Marijuana and other stuff should be legalized, taxed heavily. Harder drugs should require a licence. Yes, that's right, a licence.
Economic System: State Capitalism with a bit of a sprinkling of socialism.
Education: Should be a high priority. I can't tolerate uneducated people.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: From the UK, no clue what that is.
Environmentalism: Fine, so long as it doesn't begin to overrule other more important things.
Euthanasia: Make it legal.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution.
Gay Marriage: No real reason to not to make it legal, unless you seem to think it will make you look tougher if you don't agree with it, which is of course wrong.
Gun Control: National service = Service rifle/Stage one firearms licence.
Immigration Policies: Are they useful would be the first question.
Income Tax: It just means you are getting more stuff like libraries etc. No reason to complain.
Iran: Meh. They appear to be getting nicer.
Israel/Palestine: Really dont care.
LGBTQ Rights: Good stuff. Again, no reason not to support them.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Hedonism, or something similar.
Political Party Affiliation: There is no distinguishable difference between most of them.
President Obama/American Policies: Don't care. Not American.
Prostitution: Great. So long as you can regulate it.
Religion: The utmost should be done to stop it spreading, it is simply miseducation. It spreads intolerance and ignorance as well.
Social Security (Welfare): Ideally it wouldn't be needed, but it is.
The UN: Meh.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Why would you do that?
War on Terror: Do as much as possible to stop it, don't hesitate to threaten nations that defend them.

Also, Frenco Empire. You might disagree, but I think we have a lot in common in terms of beliefs.

Abortion:Pretty pro choice, something government should stay out of
Affirmative Action: Pro. The playing field has to be leveled for any shot at reaching genuine equality
Aid (International):Necessery and a moral obligation for all privileged nations
Arms Trade: No official attitude, however I am highly pro nuclear abolition.
Death Penalty:Highly against, it is another aspect of a rascist justice system and any white trash shitkicker who wants to keep it should be shot put in prison!
Drones: Primarily pro, they are preferable to B-52s
Drugs:Pro legalization of marijuana and hallucinogens. Make rehabilitation the focus of those caught with heavier narcotics
Economic System:Market Socialism seems most preferable to me. I would like to see the bosses taken out of the mix and have direct union control of industry
Education:Start treating teachers like professionals, fund them and quit standardized testing. Charter schools are absolutely evil and if schools are going to succeed, they cannot be treated like a business
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?:I dont care, a parliamentary system would be best anyhow

Evolution or Creation (or both)?:Evolution. Children who espouse creationist beliefs should be huimiliated in front of their entire class and forced to spit on a crucifix. Yeah, that would be cool

Prostitution:Pro legalisation and regulation so as to make it a safer profession
Religion:Im not anti religion, I just dont get how anybody could be so presumptuous to think that they know what god wants.
Social Security (Welfare):Its entirely necessary, as capitalism leaves most people poor. We cannot trust private enterprise to handle the lives of the nations poor.

Environmentalism: I'm all for sustainability and reducing carbon emissions, but it's not my number one priority
Euthanasia: For
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution. Jesus, are there still people out there who believe in the Judeo-Christian creation myth!?
Gay Marriage: For
Gun Control: Don't give a shit, I'm not in America and it doesn't affect me
Immigration Policies: I'm kind of anti-immigrant
Income Tax: It needs to be simplified a bit, but overall don't fix what ain't broke - I don't feel the tax system where I live needs much reform
Iran: Would probably get on really well with America if only the two countries followed the same religion
Israel/Palestine: Palestine deserves to be recognised as a sovereign nation
LGBTQ Rights: Support, same goes for racial minorities and women while we're at it
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Nihilist
Political Party Affiliation: New Zealand National Party
President Obama/American Policies: Obama is a dud. A community organiser and one-term Senator is not someone who is ready to be POTUS. I support him over Romney, McCain I liked but I hated Sarah Palin, so.... yeah.
Prostitution: I don't see any reason why it should be illegal
Religion: The sooner humanity moves on from religion, the better
Social Security (Welfare): I support it, as long as it's a hand up and not a hand out.
