This thread is a melding of pictures, RL info on players, and political beliefs of players (especially those that debate in General). You can give as little or as much info as you want. Post your information in the Submissions thread. Directions for posting are located there.

Economic System: Command economy (Royal Monopoly, not communist) but with limited private activity at the individual level.

Affirmative Action: In favour.
Arms Trade: Canada buying used helicopters? Ok. Selling weapons to unstable nations? Not ok.

Drugs: Are bad, mmkay?

Religion: Capable of good or evil, depends on how people use it. I am devoutly religious, and my religion influences my worldview greatly.

Veganism/Vegetarianism: Not my cuppa.
War in Iraq: Wrong to go in, but wrong to leave until it's stable.
War on Terror: You can't declare war on something abstract like terror. Socioeconomic factors and overall nihilism leads to terrorism more than anything, so moar foreign aid.

Where Did You Find NationStates?: A link from Democratic Underground.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Not yet.
Professional Goal: A Ph.D. In History. Soon, my babies, soon..
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Not.
What is your favorite genre of music: I have either eclectic tastes or no taste at all, depending on whom you ask.
Other information:
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Moderate. While I personally believe abortion should be legal in the early stages of pregnancy, I do not believe the members of both sides are evil, and I can see where they are coming from.
Affirmative Action: In my view, it is just another form of racism. I believe it should be abolished, but I believe in the right of private institutions to discriminate on a basis of race, if they so choose. However, if I were an employer, and if it were my legal choice, I would not discriminate either way.
Arms Trade: I believe there should be embargoes and sanctions preventing the sale of arms to rogue states and known terrorist organizations, however, other than that I believe that the trade of arms should be free, regulated only by the laws of the respective nations. There is no reason why a gun owner in the USA should not be able to order firearms from France. The first Bush Administration's executive orders limiting the import of foreign rifles into the US must be abolished.
Death Penalty: I generally opposed it but I don't think it's proponents are evil or misguided. I can tolerate a death penalty on particularly heinous crimes, and particularly horrid stuff like genocide, crimes against humanity, and slave trafficking. I especially enthusiastically endorse the death penalty for slave trafficking.
Drugs: Legalize.
Economic System: Libertarianism.
Education: Privatise. My child, when I have one, will be homeschooled. If the country I will be living in at that time will ban homeschooling, I will leave.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Keep.
Environmentalism: Environmentalism, in the sense of not shitting where you eat, is a smart idea. Environmtentalism in the sense where people see protecting Mother Gaia as an end in itself, and choosing to restrict our consumption and deride it, is an evil monstrosity.
Euthanasia:
Evolution or Creation?: Neither. While I believe, based on my limited
FCC: Abolish.
Gay Marriage: Legalize, together with polygamy and other, less conventional forms.
Gun Control: Abolish.
Immigration Policies: Allow more people in legally. Kick the illegals out.
Income Tax: Repeal.
Israel/Palestine: Two-state solution as a result of negotiations with the Palestinians. I voted for Likud.
Philosophy:
Political Party Affiliation: None.
President Bush/American Policies: Things are going to get worse before they get better. People like Bush, Specter, and McCain are giving conservatism a bad name.
Prostitution: Yes.
Religion: Meh.
Social Security: No.
The UN: Hell no.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: You eat whatever you want. Don’t try to make me feel guilty for not eating whatever it is you eat.
War in Iraq: Meh. I believe it was justified, but I don't think the world would crumble if America left.
War on Terror: The problem with the War on Terror is that it doesn't have defined victory condition. If we had a war on Al-Quaeda, we could win it, or lose it, or whatever. A generic "War on Terror" cannot be either logically defended or opposed, it's just a tool for politicians and the media to intimidate us and whine for more money and power.

Gun Control: No. Guns should be available to the public, not just criminals who buy on the black market.

Electoral College in USA Elections: Couldn't give a toss because I'm not American. Make this less American please <_<
Environmentalism: We need to protect our environment more to a degree that still allows us to take advantage of it.
Euthanasia: Fully support it. A persons life is theres and they can decide when they want to end it. People still commit suicide don't they?
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution, I fully support Darwin. There is no God.
FCC: I oppose it. We should now what the government is doing.
Gay Marriage: If somones gay then we shouldn't stop them from cementing their love to someone through marriage.
Gun Control: In the UK we don't let people run around with guns unless they are authorised them because they are in the army, police etc. Civilians shouldn't have guns.
Immigration Policies: There should be a quota on how many are let in each year. We are flooded with them and on every street I see a foreign face.
Income Tax: Tax less on the poor, higher on the richer.
Israel/Palestine: That's for them to decided unless it goes nuclear
Philosophy: Still holds some importance to this day
Political Party Affiliation: New Labour
President Obama/American Policies: America needs to stop being such a greedy country thinking it runs the world when it doesn't.
Prostitution: Nothing wrong with it, it's not dangerous like drug dealing and if you use contreception you have nothing to fear.
Religion: Out dated. It causes more trouble than it should.
Social Security: Reform
The UN: Created by America so they could make every country do what they wanted even when no one cares about what they say. More debate than solving problems efficiently.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: If people don't want to eat meat then fine but I find it childish.
War in Iraq: WMDs? What WMDs? There were none there! Once again it's America trying to be greedy and get oil. It's an illegal war.
War on Terror: Pull out of the Middle East and the war will end. Of course I can't see that happening until the oils dried up.

Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Pro-life (I was adopted and see no reason why other people can't simply give up their children as well)
Affirmative Action: Race shouldn't play any part in employment or anything else. It should be based on ability.
Arms Trade: Don't generally care.
Death Penalty: I'm for it.
Drugs: I don't really care. To each his own.
Economic System: Hong Kong.

Where Did You Find NationStates?: Surfing the net
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No
Professional Goal: Probably just to work to my full potential - always and forever
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: 0, I prefer the internet
What is your favorite genre of music: Swing
Other information: I divide my beliefs into "what is right" and "what is necessary". Generally the "what is necessary" category tends to be where I put my unsavoury views. I often think in black and white.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Up until seven months
Affirmative Action: Positive discrimination is still discrimination. If there are two equally qualified candidates and there is no way to choose between them (for example, both are easy-going, both work very hard, both are the same age) the decision rests entirely with who the employer feels more comfortable with regardless of any prejudices said employer may have
Arms Trade: Unfortunately needed
Death Penalty: Only for psychopaths
Drugs: All legalised
Economic System: Capitalist but moderately regulated
Education: Should start at the age of about four, but be very relaxed and preferably taught by the parent with possible outside help. When the child is old enough not to need teachers to parent it, school should start - but classes should be small and relaxed, with circle-time type things and not much focus on tests. Sciences should be differentiated. Lots of support should be given to students with higher or lower performance than the norm and every student should be pushed to work to their full potential in every subject. Classes should run at all hours of the day and students, especially teenagers, should come into them whenever they are able and leave when too tired to go on. 50+ extracurricular activities. Ideology should not be foisted on a student. Ethics should be taught from 11+. Compulsory schooling ends at 16. Universities, polytechnics etc. set their own exams. Before anyone asks: I realise my education views are variously conflicting/impractical/prepare students poorly for higher education exams. It's my personal utopian views.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Not strictly applicable for me, but I don't like the system. It should be "one citizen, one vote for presidential candidate" where the presidential candidate could be anyone in the party. Obviously this means a free-for-all popularity contest, but ah well...
Environmentalism: Clean coal and nuclear energy, a reduced dependence on oil, gradual implementation of renewables
Euthanasia: Available on demand for anyone who asks for it or a representative chosen by the asker, if said asker cannot ask personally
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution
FCC: I'm not in favour of censorship, full stop
Gay Marriage: Should be legalised
Gun Control: Yes. If people need to defend themselves (and that should only be in areas of high crime anyway) they should be able to deal damage as long as it's not potentially lethal damage, and that means no guns.
Immigration Policies: Unrestricted immigration to and from any country. Deportation should be a last resort and should not be considered when the immigrants have fled an oppressive regime.
Income Tax: Almost nothing for the poor up to about 50% for the rich
Israel/Palestine: I support the right of a Palestinian state to exist, but considering the two states would be constantly trying to kill each other a wall and border controls should be put up along the border
Philosophy: A mishmash of everything and anything I pay attention to
Political Party Affiliation: Undecided, tending to the Lib Dems
President Obama/American Policies: Obama is not God, he is probably just another liar.
Prostitution: Should be legalised and regulated
Religion: Public institutions and the state should be secular, but people should be allowed to believe whatever they want
Social Security: Up to local councils
The UN: Useless waste of time and energy
Veganism/Vegetarianism: What people eat is up to them
War in Iraq: Get out already
War on Terror: Doomed from the start. All counter-terrorism laws should be repealed. More lenience and if that doesn't work, start thinking in more unconventional ways.

Where Did You Find NationStates?: On Wikipedia.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No, but I suppose it's on the to do list now.
Professional Goal: to perform, and to enjoy life.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: a lot.
What is your favorite genre of music: Indie, but I like a bit of rock, pop, reggae, punk, and drum & bass. I'm a musical whore.
Other information: Currently Studying at university (as of 2009). Younger brother is Elgadika. Am Gay.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: it's a tricky thing. Generally, I'm all for it, up to a point. Of course, the easier thing is to USE CONTRACEPTION.
Affirmative Action: for. One day, it won't be needed, but until then...
Arms Trade: Would very much like to see a reduction of the Arms Trade.
Death Penalty: against.
Drugs: I'm happy with the current status quo.
Economic System: needs a drastic overhaul, at the expense of the multinationals.
Education: needs more funding.
Electoral College in USA Elections: It's a strange and interesting system, but one that is archaic and needs to go.
Environmentalism: A lot more needs to be done - better to be safe than sorry.
Euthanasia: For. Wouldn't do it personally, but then again I've never died a horrible cancerous death.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution. nuff said.
FCC: That's the US tv thingy right? US tv could do with some loosening up.
Gay Marriage: All for (of course, see Other Information). Then again, I don't necessarily see the point in marriage altogether...
Gun Control: how about a total ban on guns?
Immigration Policies: If they abide by and respect our laws, then I've got no problem with whoever enters my country.
Income Tax: What else pays for your roads, and schools, and police, and hospitals, and pensions, and... i could go on ad nauseum.
Israel/Palestine: I hope at least some progress is done in my lifetime, but I'm doubtful.

Political Party Affiliation: New Zealand Labour Party, although sometimes I have aligned myself with the Green Party.
President Obama/American Policies: I sincerely hope Obama can get his agenda across. Otherwise, I think we'll soon see the downfall of the US as the dominant political power.
Prostitution: It's better to have it legalised and safe, because it's going to happen no matter what.
Religion: Atheist. I have no problem with what people believe in, but I'm against organised religion as a whole. Too much wrong has been and continues to be done in its name for me to believe that much good can still be made of it.
Social Security: "From the cradle to the grave".
The UN: is a good idea, but could be better executed.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Personal choice. I'm a meat eater, myself.
War in Iraq: Should never have happened. Thankfully my country never got involved.
War on Terror: It's a necessary evil, and I think it will get worse before it gets better. It needs a whole new approach for it to be solved

Political Party Affiliation: NS General parties: founder of the United Democratic Communist Party and the Cult of TInk Party. RL: I vote for the Ligue Communiste Révolutionnaire.
President Bush/American Policies: Despicable.
Prostitution: Should be legal, with policies to protect the health of prostitutes.

Professional Goal: For now to get into law, hopefully in the background as a retainer for a corporation or in a firm dealing in corporate law, mostly because of money. Perhaps go into politics after I retire.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Around 4-5.
What is your favorite genre of music: Metal from the late 70s to the ealy 90s, though a few modern bands are bringing it back.
Other information:
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: What other choice is there? Have kids when you want them, if you don't want a kid why should that kid be forced to have you as a parent?
Affirmative Action: Meh, do what must be done I suppose.
Arms Trade: Long as it's legal I could care less. Funding to radical terrorist groups isn't nice, though.
Death Penalty: If there doesn't appear to be any hope of rehabilitation, it's better all around to get rid of certain people.
Drugs: Do whatever you want with your body, but don't fuck with anyone else. Just because you want more drugs doesn't make you entitled to other peoples' things, and drug addicts should be firmly cracked down on when they break the law.
Economic System: Mixed-market, regulation to smooth the natural boom bust cycle and a relatively open market to encourage growth and promote general economic well-being. Labor laws to help protect the people, and a robust welfare state to provide a safety net.
Education: Should be the nation's top priority, and all levels of education should be open to every citizen based on academic ability rather than economic status.
Electoral College in USA Elections: It's a good idea, but should be less tied to public opinion. The american people are not competent to judge politicians based on their merits.
Environmentalism: We live on the Earth, it's only practical to minimize the damage we cause to it.
Euthanasia: 100% for it, should be the replacement to our current solution of "Let's starve them to death if they don't want to live."
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution. It's a law of nature that organisms adapt or die, and Darwin's theories have yet to be refuted, despite religious bluster.
FCC: Censorship is the bane of freedom.
Gay Marriage: Why is it an issue? Two people should be able to do whatever they can agree on so long as it harms no one else.
Gun Control: Registration and an enforced training course should be required for all gun owners.
Immigration Policies: Make it simpler, we need the workforce and they need government protection from abuse.
Income Tax: Progressive taxation promotes equality.
Israel/Palestine: It was palestinian land in 1948, and they haven't been exterminated quite yet. They constitute the majority in their areas and so they should have their own state, as opposed to their current state of apartheid and Israel's apparent declaration of war on anyone beyond certain imaginary lines.
Philosophy: What? People are people.
Political Party Affiliation: Independent, though lately I've decided to vote for whatever will help block the Republicans, since they're merely obstructionist pigs with no capacity or desire to think about what is best for the American People they claim to represent.
President Obama/American Policies: We need to curtail the abuse of civil rights, and stop intervening so damn much overseas.
Prostitution: Whatever someone chooses to do should be their right so long as it does not infringe on the rights of others. Legalisation would allow for the protection of sex workers who exist anyway and are in a miserable situation due to their legal status.
Religion: No thanks, get rid of it ASAP.
Social Security: In current form it is broken. We don't need an enforced retirement fund, we need temporary help for those in need.
The UN: Should be given more teeth, and it's commanders granted more liberties in the field, yet with more oversight and discipline to prevent the human rights abuses and blunders they are famous for.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Do whatever you like, it doesn't really appeal to me.
War in Iraq: Completely pointless, but as long as we're there we should fix the mess we made.
War on Terror: Shouldn't have been fought in the way it was. We need to finish pacifying Afghanistan, then get the hell out and rely on proper intelligence operations to bag Al Qaeda.

Professional Goal:Not a clue yet.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?:I don't.
What is your favorite genre of music:Some rock, metal, heavy metal, nu metal and some punk.
Other information:Nothing much.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Only in the case of rape or the mother's life being in danger.
Affirmative Action: Actually causes inequality by "making some people more equal than others".
Arms Trade: What do you mean?
Death Penalty: Not in any case.
Drugs: Legalise and regulate them all. Carry government warnings, safety standards etc.
Economic System: Fully privatised, as non-interventionalist as possible that still gives equal opportunity.
Education: Private schools at a general market rate. Some government schools for the hugely disadvantaged economically, but only up to secondary education level. After that=scholarship or apprenticeship in something if you're unable to afford.
Electoral College in USA Elections: I'm in the UK, not really sure of its role.
Environmentalism: Good, up to a point.
Euthanasia: Should be legal for those dying a slow/painful death.
Evolution or Creation?: Bit of both.
FCC: No censorship.
Gay Marriage: Sure. Why not?
Gun Control: There should be none.
Immigration Policies: As long as they work and become contributing members of society, then whoever.
Income Tax: No.
Israel/Palestine: Stop backing Israel.
Philosophy: What do you mean?
Political Party Affiliation: Currently looking into joining the LPUK.
President Bush/American Policies: War mongerer, for profit. Or maybe he really was that misguided. I don't know, but the war in Iraq was wrong. Afghanistan possibly more justifiable, although they have been inconsistent.
Prostitution: Should be fully legal.
Religion: Government should stay out of religion completely.
Social Security: Abolish.
The UN: Does anyone actually pay attention to it?
Veganism/Vegetarianism: They can do what they want.

Professional Goal: Presently, to finish medical school.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: I have no TV.
What is your favorite genre of music: ROCK!
Other information:
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Only in extraordinary circumstances such threats to mother's physical life. Rape, maybe. In either case, it's the woman's choice.
Affirmative Action: Positive discrimination is still discrimination.
Arms Trade: It'd be better if we live in peace.
Death Penalty: Against, it'd be more of a punishment if we actually lock them up in jails.
Drugs: Legal only in very very exceptional medical circumstances. Not for recreation.
Economic System: Capitalist, though it'd be better if the government would lend a hand to those who are in need and are deserving.
Education: A basic human right.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Doesn't care.
Environmentalism: Some are actually terrorist organizations, some are honest-to-goodness organizations. As long as they tell the truth - no hypes, no half-truths, no cherrypicking - they're fine with me. We only have one earth, let's take care of it practically.
Euthanasia: Nope, except in medically recognized cases. Passive euthanasia - yes, though I won't involve myself in it; active euthanasia - no.
Evolution or Creation?: Both. Actually I think they complement each other.
FCC: All for freedom of expression, but this freedom should be used with respect to other's freedoms and rights. So.. yes, in extraordinary circumstances.
Gay Marriage: Let people marry who they want to marry. Give them the rights they deserve as humans. However, 'marriage' is a sacred term to some, so, I'd prefer civil unions, with no other difference but name. Redefining civil marriage as civil unions would help, too.
Gun Control: Guns must be controlled. If violence we can't, this we probably can.
Immigration Policies: Let the people decide who they want to admit as countrymen. No foreigner has a right to dictate that.
Income Tax: Paying taxes lessens my money for computer games, but they are sure needed for keeping government services up and running.
Israel/Palestine: No side, both has their faults. Why can't they be at peace?
Philosophy: mine
Political Party Affiliation: None, I'm a disfranchised voter.
President Bush/American Policies: I agree with his stands on some issues, but his Iraq war suck.
Prostitution: No, since legalization would just put a stamp of approval on the objectification and commodification of women.
Religion: All for freedom of religion, but not freedom from religion.
Social Security: It's great if we have something to rely on in times of need, but if it is being exploited, then it must be reformed.
The UN: Great, but very distant from citizens of the world.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Those folks are alright, it's their choice, as long as they don't project some form of moral ascendancy over those who eat meat. As long as they don't lie like PETA, and respect my dietary choices, they're perfectly fine, I'll respect their choice.
War in Iraq: A big mistake. Opposed ever since I heard from my father that Bush sent an ultimatum to Iraq. Democracy must be chosen by the people, not forced upon them.
War on Terror: Terrorism must be eliminated, but we must remember there are root causes as of why they became terrorists and it must be addressed. In pursuing them, one must not violate the basic human rights.

How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Sometimes I go weeks without watching, sometimes I go days where I watch it hours on end.
What is your favorite genre of music: Classic Rock, Classical, traditional Puerto Rican
Abortion: I'm not a fan of it, but I firmly and unequivocally support a woman's right to choose.
Affirmative Action: Eh, it's sort of outlived its use now, and presents many problems (and fodder for Faux News).
Arms Trade: Should be tightly regulated and overseen to the maximum.
Death Penalty: Completely and absolutely against.
Drugs: Marijuana should be legalised. I won't partake, but others should be free to put crap into themselves.
Economic System: A Scandinavian-esque social democracy is great.
Education: Should be provided to every child.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Should be abolished.
Environmentalism: I think we really need to protect the environment much more than we are right now, not just for our own sake (since the environment is vital to us) but for its sake; it has a right to flourish. Don't consider me a radical environmentalist, though.
Euthanasia: Should be legal.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution
FCC: Should not have the censoring powers it does now.
Gay Marriage: Should be completely legal and have the same status heterosexual marriages do.
Gun Control: Very much for.
Immigration Policies: Should make immigration a little easier.
Income Tax: For it. It should be progressive according to income (the rich being taxed more, the poor being taxed less).
Israel/Palestine: Both act horrendously, but Israel should know better.
Philosophy: Do unto others what you want to have done unto you.
Political Party Affiliation: None.
President Obama/American Policies: I support the Obama administration more or less. But he's not the change he made himself out to be.
Prostitution: Should be legal, regulated, and taxed.
Religion: Meh.
Social Security: For
The UN: I fully support this organisation. It's what the world really needs-- cooperation. Not bombs and war. I do think that the permanent members of the UNSC should be stripped of their veto powers, though.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Fine with me, so long as you let me eat my meat in peace.
War in Iraq: Should never have started.
War on Terror: Downright stupid.

Professional Goal: Aerospace engineer
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Maybe two hours a day.
What is your favorite genre of music: Can’t pick one. Tend to like classical music, classic rock, and folk metal.
Other information:
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Pro-choice, believe it should be decided statewide and not nationwide. However, I don't necessarily believe it should be used in all circumstances.
Affirmative Action: Don’t believe in it, and there should no be absolutely no reason for it to exist in anybody's mind since we now have a black man as President.
Arms Trade: There should be no limitation on individuals being able to purchase and ship armaments.
Death Penalty: On the fence about it, but I'm starting to not like it on the basis that it means government control of when a person's life ends.
Drugs: Pro-legalization.
Economic System: In favor of a real free market based on ideas from classical liberalism and the Austrian school of economics.
Education: Currently attending university.
Electoral College in USA Elections: I don't particularly like it.
Environmentalism: Don’t believe that global warming is solely caused by mankind, and don’t believe it should be the government’s job to regulate our lives to the ends of “saving the environment.”
Euthanasia: In favor in only in the cases where the person in question is fully capable of making the decision on their own, or has given explicit consent to euthanasia in the event they are to become incapacitated, such as in a coma.
Evolution or Creation?: Personally I believe in evolution. Other people can believe in creationism if they want to.
FCC: Abolish it. It’s one of the most immoral branches of government, apart from perhaps the IRS.
Gay Marriage: Should have equal rights to regular married couples, but I don’t believe marriage should be something conducted by the state.
Gun Control: In favor of all kinds of guns being allowed to be owned by all people without restriction.
Immigration Policies: Upgrade immigration control. I want to accept everyone who wants to come in, I just want them to come in legally.
Income Tax: Abolish it, ideally.
Israel/Palestine: Two-state solution.
Philosophy: I guess Natural Rights would be the school of philosophy I believe in.
Political Party Affiliation: None, currently.
President Bush/American Policies: The vast majority of U.S. government policies in the last 150 or so years I disagree with.
Prostitution: Legalize it.
Religion: Everyone should be allowed to freely worship, and the church should be divided from the state.
Social Security: It’s a government-run Ponzi scheme, get rid of it.
The UN: Huge failure, and I am firmly opposed to many of the policies which have been listed in many UN documents.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: What about it? If people want to do it on their own, that’s fine.
War in Iraq: Not really for a good reason and very poorly conducted, as well. Since we’re already there, and we broke a bunch of stuff, it should be our responsibility to fix it and then leave.
War on Terror: Defending against tyrants and terrorists is a legitimate policy, but a “war on terror” doesn’t make any more sense than does a “war on blitzkriegs.”

Drugs should not be taken for recreation
Economic System should benefit all people, not only rich cunts
Education is important for the future
Electoral College in USA Elections is something I don't give a crap about
Environmentalism is important, a balance is needed
Euthanasia should be legal, as a human should have rights to die at will
Evolution or Creation? Evolution
FCC is American and I don't give a crap
Gay Marriage should be legal in democratic countries to prove equality
Gun Control should be enforced
Immigration Policies should be strict for the interest of the nation
Income Tax causes rich bitches to die! (Muahahahhaha)
Israel/Palestine is something I don't care about.
Philosophy is a very interesting subject that interests me.

President Obama/American Policies is better than Bush
Prostitution can be legal, but health checks are needed.

What is your favorite genre of music: Pretty much everything, if I like a song I'll listen to it, but mostly Rock, Classical, Alternative, Reggae, Hip-Hop, you name it.
Other information: I like ice cream, popcorn, women, and Ronald Reagan.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: I believe that the murder of our children is unacceptable except in extreme cases of rape and if the mother's life is in danger.
Affirmative Action: Forcing businesses to hire certain races is totally outrageous. The owner should have the right to hire who he wants without intervention from the beast of a government.
Arms Trade: When performed between two legal legitimate governments, then fine, when done with terrorist or separatist groups, not fine.
Death Penalty: When the crime is so bad it requires it.
Drugs: I believe they should remain illegal and socially banned.
Economic System: Free Market Capitalism, the best and longest lasting one.
Education: Should be required for primary schooling, like elementary and high school, however college and university should remain a choice, the U.S. or German version is fine to me.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Good idea, but it has transformed into something of personal voting secretive bribes than what the founding fathers meant it to be.
Environmentalism: Is a joke, the way it is in the U.S. is somewhat fine, but when people like PETA gets involved, its totally ridiculous.
Euthanasia: Only when it is totally 100% certain that the person is going to die, and by choice of said person.
Evolution or Creation?: I believe we were created, but left to evolve with or without a helping hand from above.
FCC: Another breach of our rights, Censorship is the enemy of Liberty.
Gay Marriage: No! It destroys cultures and societies.
Gun Control: No, just the basic registration and background check, nothing more, nothing less.
Immigration Policies: Legal immigrants that come to the U.S. and get a job the right way should be welcomed with open arms and treated as fellow citizens, illegals on the other hand deserve NOTHING and should be shipped back home where they belong, wait in line like everyone else.
Income Tax: Needs to be to keep the government running, however should be kept low and never over 15%.
Israel/Palestine: Pro Israel, but the Palestinians need to get rid of Hamas and Hezbollah if they ever want to have a nation.
Philosophy: Usually gets me to sleep.
Political Party Affiliation: Republican, although if a Conservative Party was created I'd join that in a heat beat.
President Obama/American Policies: Obama has made things worse while donning the mask of denial and blame. America needs to regain the stance it held in the late 1800's and early 1900's where we told the world to piss off and they listened.
Prostitution: Should remain illegal.
Religion: Everyone should have a right to worship who they want, where they want, when they want. However the VOCAL non-believers should keep their mouths shut and live and let live.
Social Security: Great idea, but needs to be privatized in order to keep it going for many many many many more years to come.
The UN: Was good at first, but has collapsed into a cesspool of bureaucracy and getting nothing done, almost like the WA, and has become an anti-U.S. organization, however in the U.S. was to leave the U.N. they would throw a hissy fit, and then, collapse, seeing that the U.S. pays for the U.N.'s expenses.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: What you want to eat is your choice, just don't harass and force other people to do it.
War in Iraq: I love my boys in uniform and I'll support them through thick and thin. Where ever they may be, I support the Reconstruction of Iraq, seeing that there is no longer a war.
War on Terror: Totally support 100%, however we need the more nations to join if terror is to really take a blow.

What is your favorite genre of music: Opera and classical
Other infomation: "Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile" - Albert Einstein
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Pro-Life as a matter of principle, but I support abortion when the mother's life is in danger, in cases of rape and during the first weeks of pregnancy.
Affirmative Action: Pro. But it should be class-based, not race-based. Help those from disadvantaged backgrounds, regardless of their skin colour.
Arms Trade: Heavily regulated. No sale of any arms to organizations (including nations) that are suspected of using them to intentionally murder civilians.
Death Penalty: Only for genocide and crimes against humanity (e.g. Hitler).
Drugs: Soft drugs (e.g. cannabis) should be legalized.
Economic System: Socialism all the way! The means of production (= capital goods, including such things as all industries) should be nationalized and placed under the ownership of a democratic state. The economy should be a planned one, with the people having a large say in the planning process. Finally, a high degree of social equality should be established. For more details, see here.
Education: Completely and absolutely free. For-profit schools and universities should be banned. All schools and universities should get all their money from public funding, and charge no tuition fees. Why? Because tuition fees are a form of discrimination based on class: Rich kids can get in better schools even if they are less qualified. Even if you assume that everyone's wealth comes from their own merit, you still can't justify private education, because it's the parents, not the kids, who pay for education. If rich parents can buy their kids a better education, you get social stratification: The children of the rich will always stay rich and the children of the poor will always stay poor.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Abolish it. It's outdated and anti-democratic.
Environmentalism: Pro. We should protect our environment at least for our own sake if nothing else.
Euthanasia: Pro, but only with consent from patient and doctor. If the patient is in a coma, his/her relatives should not be allowed to call for euthanasia.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: What's that? Some American thing, I guess...
Gay Marriage: Pro. They're not harming anyone, so let them marry.
Gun Control: Against. The people must be armed in order to defend themselves from any potential tyrants.
Immigration Policies: Moderate and sensible. Not too open, but not too closed either.
Income Tax: Strongly progressive. The poorest of all should pay no tax at all, while the richest pay as much as 80%.
Israel/Palestine: They're both at fault, though in different ways. The only hope is for them to come to some sort of understanding and make peace. Any solution is good as long as it makes both sides happy.
Philosophy: Utilitarianism all the way! The greatest good for the greatest number.
Political Party Affiliation: None in particular, though I do of course support Communist Parties in general.
President Bush/American Policies: They range between stupid and evil.
Prostitution: Against. It is an extreme form of exploitation of women, and women only take up this job when they're in a desperate situation and have no other choice. The state should ensure that no one is put in such a desperate situation.
Religion: Christianity.
Social Security: Absolutely necessary. And it must be a public institution.
The UN: Great in theory, but mostly worthless in practice. It needs the power to actually enforce its resolutions.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Not a vegetarian, and don't really care. Animals eat each other all the time, so there's nothing wrong with us doing the same.
War in Iraq: A war was needed to remove Saddam Hussein, but this war is a disaster. And it was started under the lie about WMD's. There's not much that can be done about it now, though. US troops need to stay there to prevent a civil war.
War on Terror: I'd rather have a war on the causes of terror. People don't just wake up one morning and decide to blow themselves up. Poor and desperate Muslims are the prey of terrorist recruiters.

Political Beliefs
Abortion: Its wrong, make it illegal
Affirmative Action: It’s useless, it’s a form of racism, so we should stop it.
Arms Trade: I don’t like it, but it is still bound to happen.
Death Penalty: I am from Texas, I don’t think we use it enough.
Drugs: I don’t like it, but it’s not my decision.
Economic System: The government should stay out of it.
Education: Is bad, America is getting stupider and stupider.
Electoral College in USA Elections: It’s in the Constitution for a reason.
Environmentalism: Bulls**t, “Global Warming” is being caused by the Sun, not humans.
Euthanasia: Don’t think it should be legal.
Evolution or Creation?: I believe that Evolution is God just making changes to his creations.
FCC: Is against the First Amendment
Gay Marriage: If you’re gay, that’s not my problem. It’s up to individual states on marriage though.
Gun Control: The 2nd amendment says I can have a gun, so I’m gonna keep mine.
Immigration Policies: Illegal immigrants are destroying the economy, if you want in the US, do what my Great-Grandfather did, stand in line and wait your turn.
Income Tax: Against the Constitution
Israel/Palestine: Israel has the right to defend their land.
Political Party Affiliation: Constitution Party
President Obama/American Policies: Obama is the worst thing that could have happened to America, he is just setting up our economy to fail again. Health care is a privilege not a right, he has no military experience, he is a known black supremacist, and is embarrassing the US by apologizing for every smart decision we have made.
Prostitution: If you want to get laid, go for it.
Religion: Roman Catholic
Social Security: Is against the Constitution
The UN: As George Washington said the US has no place in international relations.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I love meat, and PETA is a brainwashing terrorist organisation who kills the most animals in the United States
War in Iraq: Iraq was not America’s business, but now that we are there let’s not lose.
War on Terror: Al-Qaeda attacked the US, the US has every right to bomb them to hell.

I have been central figure in a billion billion pantheons and arch-nemesis of a billion billion more. I am the fount of all reality, the lodestone at the swirling center of time. I am Czardas.

Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Yes.
Occupation: Ruler of the omniverse.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: 0.
What is your favorite genre of music: The meaningless collections of sounds you mortals refer to as "music" pass too quickly, and make too little sense, to be of concern to a being such as myself.
Other information: This profile may contain small quantities of hyperbole or exaggeration regarding my current circumstances.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: A decision that should be left to the individual, rather than the state.
Affirmative Action: Racism in another form.
Arms Trade: Should be subject to the same regulations as all other forms of trade.
Business Regulations: Workplace safety, environmental regulations, and antitrust laws. All other forms of regulation are unnecessary intrusion by the state into business, and are likely to lead to corporatism (i.e. fascism).
Death Penalty: In favour, for the most serious crimes.
Drugs: Legalize all recreational drugs. Then strongly discourage and stigmatize their use. Much organized crime is fueled by the sale of illegal drugs on the one hand, but drug users can be a danger to themselves and others on the other hand.
Economic System: Statist capitalism, if that's not a contradiction in terms. Technically Keynesian I suppose, although a good deal less regulated than your average Keynesian economy.
Education: A well-funded public education system, compulsory for all students who choose not to/cannot afford to go to independent schools. Impressionable kids are easier for teachers to brainwash if school is perceived as a good thing, anyway.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Keep it.
Environmentalism: In favour of proactive environmentalism. Against bumper-sticker environmentalism.
European Union: Nothing against it. If it's doomed to fail, it'll fail on its own time.
Euthanasia: Should be legalized. If people really want to be euthanized, that's their choice.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: A tool of religious lobbies to force their moral-minority views on the American public. Get rid of it. If you don't like something, don't watch it.
Gay Marriage: Remove government from marriage altogether. If religious institutions wish to grant gay marriages, they can.
Genetic Engineering/Eugenics: In favour of continued research into improving the species through technology.
Global Warming/Climate Change: We probably didn't cause it, but as long as we're capable of doing so, we should try to change the climate to suit our needs -- seeding clouds, et cetera.
Gun Control: Against. However, introduce more gun safety courses in which responsible use and care of firearms is emphasized, which citizens must pass and receive a certification in order to own guns. Guns, after all, are worse than useless if you don't know how to use them.
Immigration Policies: If you're not a criminal, you can join. Naturalization will still take five years or so though.
Income Tax: Reduce it. Flat tax is good.
Israel/Palestine: Yes.
Military spending: Reduce it.
The NHS: Keep it. It appears to work.
Philosophy (Political): Socially liberal; economically centrist; politically authoritarian ("Benevolent Dictatorship").
President Obama/American Policies: Neutral. Not exceptionally fond of Obama, but not especially opposed to him either.
Prostitution: Fine.
Religion: Now that we have scientific theories to explain how the universe works, and codes of law to explain how people should behave, religion is unnecessary and should be allowed to gradually die out (not stamped out).
Science and Technology in General: Strongly in favour of all scientific research and advances. We should start offworld colonies, et cetera.
Social Security: Unnecessary, like most forms of welfare.
The UN: Ambivalent -- most of the things it does are pretty worthless, but then again there's also UNICEF, UNESCO, et cetera.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Meh.
War in Afghanistan: Doomed to fail like the war in Iraq if the US/coalition doesn't get its act together.
War on Terror: You can't declare war on an inanimate object.
Welfare: Should be limited to the seriously ill (i.e. those who, through no fault of their own, cannot work) with unemployment checks to those who are between jobs and looking for work. The rest of the system should be cut down severely. The state has other priorities.

Where Did You Find NationStates?: don't remember.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No.
Professional Goal: keep on trucking
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: 2 to 3, mostly English imports, espcially Fox Japan (runs lots of US shows from various networks), CNN, Discovery Cartoon, and CNN. A bit of Japanese programing.
What is your favorite genre of music: rock (hard, metal, punk, and classic), classical, opera, jazz, blues, world, and country, pretty much any "real" music - just don't play any hip hop, rap crap, or mindless pop.
Other infomation: My other hobbies/interst are: painting (abstract mixed water media) and reading. I often post from cranky bar room or otherwise computers, which sometimes have strange quirks (cut and paste is disabled on this one, odd keyboard mods on another). I teach conversational ESL. I have lived in Japan over 12 years. I was a poly-sci major at University of Houston. I cook some of the meanest real Texas Chili this side of Tokyo, according to my Yankee freinds. 8)
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Somewhat undecided. It sould probably remain legal, but should be regulated to prevent abuse. A fetus is not a person, but is it not not-a person. It is a potential person.
Affirmative Action: Reverse discrimination that reinforces the outdated and contemptable concept of biological races.
Arms Trade: Good business.
Death Penalty: Definately needed. It serves as an absolute and perminant deterent - to one individual who has shown the inclination towards killing. However, there are currently problems with how it is currently being used in the US.
Drugs: Legalise them all.
Economic System: Laissez-faire free market pure capitalism.
Education: Privatisation.
Electoral College in USA Elections: It's not broken, so don't touch it. It was put into the US constitution for a very good reason (the great balancing act), and tampering with it will likely cause more problems than it would fix.
Environmentalism: Environmentalist, but disagree with almost all organizations that present themselves as such, as they tend to be "watermelon greens" (green on the outside, red on the inside). Global Warming, and greenhouse gas emissions are overblown. It has yet to be shown that humans have caused global warming. Additionally, global warming has kept us out of the impending ice age. If global warming is shown to be linked to human release of greenhouse gasses, it is likely to self corect within the next 100 years. The coming oil peak will force the reduction of the release of these gasses. Pollution is a matter of property rights. If you pollute my property (including my body), it is exactly the same as if you physically assualt me. Property rights also internalize the negative consequences of pollution, thus providing incentive to reduce it. Furthermore, establishing property rights prevents "Tragedy of the Commons" situations, such as have lead to the near destruction of many fisheries around the world. Big governments are the largest cause of environmental pollution and damage.
Euthanasia: You need a clear statement of intent and concent, but otherwise, OK.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: Disband it.
Gay Marriage: Abolish all state recognition of marriage, other than as simply another contract between legally consenting adults.
Gun Control: Thge US needs to roll back the overly restrictive laws currently in place in order to comply with the constitution.
Immigration Policies: US policies need to be much looser.
Income Tax: Abolish it, and replace it with user fees.
Israel/Palestine: The US should back way off of this one. Stop throwing away money on it. Politically, Palestinian statehood should be supported.
Philosophy: Minarchist Libertarian. Influances: Aristotle, Machiavelli, John Locke, Thomas Jefferson, Adam Smith, Thomas Paine, Ayn Rand, and Robert Nozick.
Political Party Affiliation: Independent, but I usually vote GOP or LP
President Bush/American Policies:
Bush: Too influanced by authoritarians and religious radicals. The current administration has made several strategic errors. Bush himself is not an idiot. However, he does strike me as a prototypical spoiled rich frat boy. And he's a chickenhawk deserter.
US Policies: Over the long term, US policies have been co-opted by many different interests. We need to stop sticking our nose where it does not belong. And, the current military needs to be doubled. The "peace dividend" was a scam that gutted the military at a time when it was going to be needed to follow the often (mistaken) policies of the US. (Pedantic note: It should be US, not American, as N. and S. America do
not have a single policy.)
Prostitution: Legalise it.
Religion: Buddhist.
Social Security: A fix for a non-existant problem that was intended to be temporary, but which has become a long term pyramid scheme that is fundamentally unsustanable.
The UN: The UN has never worked as it was intended. It's a good idea in need of serious fixing. Unfortunately, I suspect it is eventually headed to the scrapheap of history, much like it's equally ineffective predesessor.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Not vegetarian, but I have no argument with it.
War in Iraq: A prime example of the Bush administration's strategic errors. I originally supported it, on the grounds that Saddam did appear to present a clear danger. However, the execution and prossecution, especially of the occupation, has been nearly criminal. Assuming the re-stated goals are accepted, the occupation, pacification, and rebuilding will require significantly more resources than I can see the US is willing or able to put into it.
War on Terror: A misnomer, as terrorism is the enemy, but his tactic. It should properly be named the War on Al Qaida. The WAQ is a just war of self-defense, as the US and others have been attacked by this organisation repeatedly. This war probably should have been prosecuted by the Clinton administration. Unfortunately, this war is probably not winnable, due to the only proven method of stamping out enemies who practice terroism (the so called "Mongol method" of laying absolute waste) is highly unpalatable in the modern world.

How many hours a day do you watch TV?: 3 at least
What is your favorite genre of music: Metal, hard rock, classic rock
Other information:
I have a unique way of perceiving things and my logic defies most common beliefs by people. The common words used to describe it have been "ignorant and illogical" but that was said because people don't like anything that challenges the 'norm'.

Political Beliefs:
Abortion should only be legal in cases of rape, incest or if the pregnancy can lead to the mother's death.
Affirmative Action ruined this country. It has been around long enough and promotes Reverse Racism. People can't even talk about issues like rising gas prices because you might offend someone on a racial level.
Arms Trade should stop to other countries, they'll just end up using our own weapons against us.
Death Penalty should be enforced and should have an express lane.
Drugs like Marijuana and other 'soft' drugs should be legalized, regulated and sold like liquor. Heavy drugs to, but make penalties for breaking laws under the influence EXTREMELY sever.
Economic System: Mixed economy
Education should be paid for completely by the Government, college as well.
Electoral College in USA Elections has to go, otherwise your vote doesn't truly count.
Environmentalism should have started sooner. We are fucking up the planet everyday and I believe we started going green too late.
Euthanasia should be an option for the terminally ill.
Evolution or Creation? Both, God created man and we have evolved over time.
FCC needs to lighten up and get laid.
Gay Marriage - This is America, Gay people should have the right to lose half their shit just like the rest of the population.
Gun Control means using both hands. Everyone has the right to bare arms.
Healthcare should be paid for by the Government or should be free/low cost with everyone receiving the same level of care.
Immigration Policies need to change, close the boarders now! If you're in this country illegally, you get deported, no loopholes to become a citizen. That also makes me add that America should reenact an old law... the Federal Language Law - an English-speaking requirement for all citizens of the US.
Income Tax needs to be a flat rate.
Israel/Palestine can kill each other over whatever it is they're fighting for.
Philosophy to me is a fuzzy logic, one cannot be told how to view things but must view things for themselves.
Political Party Affiliation: None
President Obama/American Policies scare me. I didn't vote for the man, so as long as he takes care of things and gets this country working again... no problems here.
Prostitution should be legal and highly regulated/taxed
Religion has been corrupted. All organized religion is a perversion of God's message.
Social Security won't be around when I retire.
The UN is a joke. 'Oh, we'll sanction you!' Yeah, that'll scare them.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I'm a member of PETA, People Eating Tasty Animals. 'Save a cow, eat a vegetarian!'
War in Iraq was George W. Bush's way of trying to make the American people forget about Afghanistan after Osama bin Laden secretly escaped to Pakistan. (oh yeah, I said it and George W. knows I'm telling the truth... don't you George?)
War on Terror has cost a lot for what has been done so far.

Other information: Gah...if I think of anything important, I'll edit it in here.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: I'm against abotion in principle, but in practice I'm pro-choice, mainly because we don't have a plan for the consequences of making abortion illegal
Affirmative Action: No real opinion, but I think it's kind of stupid. People should be chosen based on ability, not race.
Arms Trade: Not very knowledgeable on this, but as long as we're only selling to established 1st world allies, I don't much care.
Death Penalty: I support the death penalty, but would prefer that DNA evidence be required in all cases where this sentence is sought.
Drugs: I am in favor of legalizing, regulating and taxing marijuana. I am also in favor of decriminalizing softer drugs like LSD and mushrooms. Use the revenue saved to crack down on dangerous drugs like herion, crack/cocaine and PCP.
Economic System: I like what we've got so far, but a little deregulation couldn't hurt, as long as corporate ethics and environmental standards remain intact.
Education: I'm kind of split on this issue, but right now I lean towards full privatization and the government handing out vouchers to every student. There would, however, have to be a significant portion of non-religious based schools.
Electoral College in USA Elections: NO! I'm also in favor of proportional representation for the House of Representatives.
Environmentalism: Definetly for this...not an outright hippy-tree-hugger, but we need to be taking steps to ensure that shit doesn't go downhill.
Euthanasia: Your life, your suffering, your choice to end it.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution
FCC: Weaken all power. Content in media should not be regulated unless absolutely necessary.
Gay Marriage: If gay people want to get married, I have no problem whatsoever with that.
Gun Control: I'd prefer that registration and licensing be stricter, but have no desire to ban any type of gun.
Immigration Policies: Illegal immigration needs to be addressed in a serious manner. A stronger border policy is definetly needed.
Income Tax: I would prefer switching over to a national sales tax.
Israel/Palestine: Cut any support to both sides and only offer to help work things out diplomatically.
Philosophy: That would require another thread. :)
Political Party Affiliation: None
President Bush/American Policies: Bush=bad, I have issues with a lot of America's foreign policy, and would prefer an isolationist stance except in trade/economic areas.
Prostitution: I'd prefer legalization and regulation, like in The Netherlands
Religion: I believe in a higher power(s), but do not adhere to any organized religion.

War in Iraq: Stupid...we should have focused on Afghanistan until it was no longer in need of our presence.
War on Terror: See "War in Iraq", we also need stronger emphasis on border and port security. The Patriot Act needs to be heavily revised.

Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Nope.
Professional Goal: Chaos God
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: 0
What is your favorite genre of music: Contemporary Orchestrated music (Avro Part, Philip Glass, etc)
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Neither radical side offers appropriate solutions, and compromises are morally illegitimate. A life is morally significant when self-aware (amongst other things), thus aborting a pregnancy is perfectly fine up until a brain/heart develops. Afterwards, the woman must carry the child until it is viable outside the womb. The pregnancy may be terminated if and only if the life of the child is not harmed in the process.
Affirmative Action: Reverse discrimination is still discrimination. Plus, the right of free association means the state has no legitimate authority to force anyone to trade or interact with anyone else.
Arms Trade: I <3 gunz
Death Penalty: Not sure, but inclined to say no.
Drugs: Legalize everything. Not only does the state not have a legitimate power to tell you how to behave when it doesn't directly harm anyone else, but as history has repeatedly shown, outlawing markets not only fails to make markets go away, but it also increases crime
Economic System: lassiez-faire capitalism in the Austrian tradition
Education: Priviatize everything
Electoral College in USA Elections: Sack it. Now.
Environmentalism: Good intentioned but overzealous, with improper solutions.
Euthanasia: With consent of the patient, it should be legal.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution
FCC: Get rid of it.
Gay Marriage: The concept of legal marriage should be abolished. Who the fuck wants lawyers and the state involved with love? Robert Heinlein had it right - let people draw up contracts to share goods, grant power of attorney, etc, with whomever they want.
Gun Control: See: Drugs. Plus, I <3 Gunz
Immigration Policies: Freedom of movement should not be restricted
Income Tax: Abolish it
Israel/Palestine: Abolish Israel and Palestine
Philosophy: Socrates, Aristotle, Kant
Political Party Affiliation: none
President Obama/American Policies: Obama was one of the worst things to happen to America.
Prostitution: See: Drugs/guns. legalize it
Religion: People may believe as they wish
Social Security: Abolish it.
The UN: The UN as a meeting place to discuss things? Sure. Passing regulations/legislation/resolutions? No. Governments are far enough away from the people as it is. A world government - or even something that even remotely resembles a world government, is an awful idea.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: More meat for me.
War in Iraq: nothx
War on Terror: Nothing short of fearmongering

The UN: A good idea that needs an upgrade.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Personal choice. I'm a vegetarian to some extent, though I'm getting into sushi. Mmm...
War in Iraq: OUT. NOW!
War on Terror: Fearmongering. Thank God it didn't go full-blown McCarthy, or I'd have been shipped off to Gitmo years ago. The people who cart you away don't tend to realize that being brown doesn't mean being Muslim. Despite, you know, there being 1 billion brown people who are not Muslim.

Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Where to start? I change every 5 minutes, but for now I'm pro-choice.

Arms Trade: Ethical countries shouldn't be stopped from receiving weapons shipments.
Death Penalty: No
Drugs: Cannabis legalised and regulated.

Social Security: Is good.

What is your favorite genre of music: Rock/Metal
Other information:
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: In favour, when general ethical conditions are met.
Affirmative Action: The very fact it's necessary paints a not too impressive picture of our society.
Arms Trade: Selling guns to people that we might one day fight never seemed to be the smartest of policies.
Death Penalty: Barbaric, and just plain wrong on so many levels
Drugs: Full legalization and regulation, please. The majority of problems that drugs cause are themselves caused by it's illegal status.
Economic System: I like the French model, simply because to date it delivers a better standard of living than any of others.
Education: Should be every governments number one priority. If this is sorted then all the other problems take care of themselves.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Silly, but not very important in the scheme of things.
Environmentalism: Since we plan on using this planet for a long time to come, shouldn't take care of it?
Euthanasia: Leaving someone in incredible pain for years rather than killing them at their own request is the ultimate in moral self-indulgence.
Evolution or Creation?: I'm no expert, so I go with the answer that the experts give: Evolution
FCC: The 1950's, in institutional form.
Gay Marriage: How can you be against something that'll give millions happiness and not affect you in the slightest?
Gun Control: Full legalization and regulation, please. If the vast majority of citizens can't be trusted not to go out killing people, then you've got a problem way bigger than the number of guns in your society.
Immigration Policies: Unsure, I've done no research on this topic. I reckon we've pretty right at the moment.
Income Tax: In favour, tilted towards those with ability to pay the most.
Israel/Palestine: The problem isn't between Israel and Palestine, it's between the moderates and extremists, on both sides. I'm for the Moderates.
Philosophy: I'll have a John Stuart Mill with a dash of Isaiah Berlin, shaken, not stirred.
Political Party Affiliation: I vote on issues, an dislike anyone who doesn't.
President Bush/American Policies: Possibly the worst start to this century we could ever have had.
Prostitution: Full legalization and regulation, please.
Religion: Not for me, but if you like it, go right ahead.
Social Security: Damn skippy.
The UN: So much wasted potential, but it does do much more good than harm.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: After researching the topic carefully, I decided it's not for me, but respect anyone who has chosen to go down that path.
War in Iraq: War for all the wrong reasons that has, after many years of wholesale slaughter, probably produced a good result. But I'm an optimist.
War on Terror: It ain't a war. A war is between two countries. This is an authoritarians wet dream. Can we be done with this rubbish before it causes irreplaceable damage?

Abortion: I Personally disapprove of the practise, but believe that it is a moral decision that should be left up to the mother rather than the state.
Affirmative Action: Strongly in favour
Arms Trade: Only with nations with a good human rights record
Death Penalty: Strongly opposed
Drugs: Cannabis should be decriminalised as use has become so common that the law is a joke. Its use has no negative consequences on others. Stronger drugs are linked with crime and violence, and dealers should be vigorously pursued and prosecuted, while for users the focus should be on getting them off the drugs rather than jailing them.
Economic System: Government ownership of public utilities and regulation of the market economy in all other goods.
Education: Abolish private schooling, invest in state schools. I support a modified Grammar/Comprehensive system, in which there is scope at the end of every year for the top perfomers in Comprehensives to switch schools with the lowest performing in Grammars to adjust for different speeds of development.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Get rid.
Environmentalism: Doubtful if anything can be done without world government, but we might as well try.

Evolution or Creation?: Evolution
FCC: I support a degree of censorship, though believe hate speech towards minorities and depictions of violence should be regarded as more offensive than sex.
Gay Marriage: Strongly in favour
Gun Control: If you aren't in the armed forces or police, you shouldn't have a gun.
Immigration Policies: Allow in those persecuted by their government or fleeing from failed states only.
Income Tax: Slash military spending, use this to reduce tax on those with low incomes
Israel/Palestine: I support neither side, they're as bad as each other
Philosophy: People are bastards, so we need government to keep them in line. Because goverment is made up of people, we need checks and balances to make sure THEY are kept in line also.
Political Party Affiliation: None
President Bush/American Policies: I wouldn't trust Bush to run a lemonade stall, let alone a country.
Prostitution: Those who visits prostitutes are the criminals, not the prostitutes themselves
Religion: I'm an Atheist and strongly believe in church/state separation
Social Security: Government should create work for the unemployed, paying only a subsistence wage lower than the minimum wage for private enterprise to encourage people to return to work.
The UN: Agencies do much good, don't get me started on the Security Council
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Not for me, but I understand why people do it
War in Iraq: I am in most circumstances a non-interventionist. Iraq is a key case of intervention doing more harm than good
War on Terror: See my above answer on Iraq. I believe current interventionist policy is only increasing East/West hostility.

Economic immigration is more difficult with regards to resources/ability to accommodate increased population but generally as much as possible should be done to integrate immigrants within the host nation
Income Tax: Tax burden should be highest on those who can afford it but generally tax is required to provide public services but the government should ensure those services are value for money and the tax money is not wasted
Israel/Palestine: Both are very bad boys who should be sent to bed with no supper.
Political Party Affiliation: Liberal Democrats, although they can be a bit economically liberal for my tastes
President Bush/American Policies: Why? Why did you elect him twice?
Prostitution: In theory, it's their body, they should be able to sell sex if they want to. In practice it 99.9% of the time it results in exploitation and abuse. The emphasis should be on protection of sex workers though, not prosecution.
Religion: Pagan
Social Security: Yes, it is the government's duty to provide a safety net for it's citizens.
The UN: It needs to be changed/reformed but the idea is good.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: If you want to be vegetarian fine. Me, I like meat. Veganism is dangerous and pointless.
War in Iraq: Bad idea, very bad idea. Withdrawal timetable should be set up, with an emphasis on training and supporting the local security forces so they can take over.
War on Terror: You cannot declare war on a concept. Terrorism is a criminal act and should be treated as such. By calling this a war you are just playing into their own propaganda about this being a Jihad between east and west.

General Religious Affiliation [if any]: none
Where Did You Find NationStates?: referred by friend
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: JG and Company. Company made me laugh out loud, but JG made me scared for the future. :p
Professional Goal: to teach high school chemistry and biology. Currently teaching fulltime in SF
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: About 1. Between the time I get home and sleep
What is your favorite genre of music: everything but country, metal, and rap
Other Information: I'm from Seattle and still miss the rain from there. Plus the zero chance of snow is hard.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Completely in favor, although my support drops the nearer to delivery. If the baby is able to survive on its own then the mother can just have the fetus removed, it doesn’t need to be killed. Up to that point however, it’s just a bunch of cells.
Affirmative Action: Support, although really I support more of an economic basis for this. Given I’m in education I can see a real difference between students based on their backgrounds.
Arms Trade: Uh… bad.
Death Penalty: I’m a bit vindictive sometimes, so I still like the idea of killing people for doing horrible things. Of course, if we could do it in a timely fashion we’d save a bunch of money. But then you run the risk of killing an innocent person…
Drugs: I’m fine with it as long as you’re not harming other people. You want to screw over your own life, go for it. But if you have kids you have people you’re supposed to look out for. And sure as hell don’t get pregnant while on drugs.
Economic System: I favor more control than my government currently seems to exert, I’m not sure how the reforms Congress is working on will play out.
Education: I teach. This is my purpose, so I uh.. support it.
Electoral College in USA Elections: fairly neutral, wouldn’t mind simple majority, but I *kinda* understand why we have it.
Environmentalism: Support the earth. But don’t be radical and learn to balance one idea (green energy) with another (wide open spaces). I’m thinking the environmentalists that want to block huge wind farms here…
Euthanasia: Go for it if you’re in pain or dying. If you just want to die… as long as you’re not supporting someone, and have gone through counseling, go for it.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution. Not only am I a teacher, I teach science.
FCC: Agree in some sense, but some of the things they lay down laws for seem stupid.
Gay Marriage: support. One of the few negatives about California is that Prop 8 got passed.
Gun Control: Support. There’s a certain point where the guns people can legally have are waaaay out of control. If you are a hunter and get a hunters permit, fine. But if you are a normal citizen, no.
Immigration Policies: Fairly open, but I don’t know a ton about it so I try not to speak about immigration.
Income Tax: Low income = low, high income = high. Not to the point where they’re all equal, but the gap between rich and poor widening is not something that should continue.
Israel/Palestine: They’re like children. Children who cling to history as justification to kill each other which should contradict their religious beliefs.
Philosophy: Don’t harm others and do what you want to.
Political Party Affiliation: Democrat
President Obama/American Policies: Support, although I’m not sure how much has actually been done.
Prostitution: Legalize it, tax it, put health codes in place, and make it a business.
Religion: none for me thanks. And as long as you respect that, do what you want.
Social Security: All for it. Human nature is to cheat, if we have safeguards in place than that’s sufficient for me.
The UN: Support, should have more power, I want a Star Trek universe. :P
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Not one, but that’s a personal choice.
War in Iraq: not really in favor, but pulling out to leave it in chaos doesn’t work either. We’re there until it’s over.
War on Terror: stupid. People will always terrorize other people.

Have you read any of Max Barry's books: I have read Jennifer Government.
Professional Goal: I aim to be a Professor of Ancient History at any one of several universities (which are themselves spread across Greece, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and the United States of America).
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: None. I watch on average six DVD's per week.
What is your favorite genre of music: Classical, particularly Mozart or Holst.
Other information: If you talk to me, don't be stupid.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Pro-choice.
Affirmative Action: Like I care what colour people are?
Arms Trade: Shoot capitalists.
Death Penalty: In favour except there is no such thing as a perfect juridical or judicial system - therefore the only logical position is against.
Drugs: If it doesn't hurt me, I don't care.
Economic System: Democratic, planned economy.
Education: Formal education is a means to instil the population with a uniform set of beliefs in some instances - in others it is an attempt to mask some of the important parts of history with unimportant ones or with 'dumbed-down' versions of those histories.
Electoral College in USA Elections: The US is not a democracy, with or without an electoral college; it is a plutocracy.
Environmentalism: Industry must be taken out of individual hands and transferred to communal ownership; only by logical planning of resources can we cut down drastically on CO2/SO2 emissions from cars, factories etc and can we use our fossil fuels more productively until such time as we no longer need them.
Euthanasia: For.
Evolution or Creation?: Neither; evolution is a theory. Creationism is nonsense.
FCC: More American stuff?
Gay Marriage: See earlier reference to my views on what does not affect me.
Gun Control: Arm the population; make possession and training in the use of automatic weapons a must for all citizens. Make handguns and small automatics such as Uzis illegal - they serve no purpose even under the Second Amendment of the US Bill of Rights.
Immigration Policies: I'm against the idea of the Nationstate.
Income Tax: Non-applicable.
Israel/Palestine: One solution: a socialist overturn of both governments and the running of the world by Soviets - councils of workers and soldiers deputies. Internecine feuding would fade because the Soviets would depend on each other for resources.
Philosophy: Plato was a muppet.
Political Party Affiliation: Socialist Party of Ireland, affiliated to the Committee for a Workers International and to International Socialist Resistance.
President Bush/American Policies: America in all instances and like all capitalist nations defends the interests of the capitalist class, particularly in relation to foreign policy. It is no worse or better than any other nation, it is simply the global hegemon (see Wallerstein and Gramscian theories on International Relations).
Prostitution: Legalize it, unionize it.
Religion: For weak minds.
Social Security: I'm going to see the revolution that makes it irrelevant or die before I need it - tenured Professors usually do.
The UN: Undemocratic waste of money which serves the interests of the United States of America...when it does anything at all.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Doesn't bother me - though the fad of being vegetarian just because some animals are maltreated needs to be stamped out ruthlessly.
War in Iraq: Against.
War on Terror: Well done, the muppets actually managed to turn Iraq into a playground for terrorists-in-training.

General Political Affiliation [if any]: anti-collectivist
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: anti-theist
Where Did You Find NationStates?: http://www.nationstates.net
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No, although I want to read Jennifer Government.
Professional Goal: make more money doing the one thing I dislike the least
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: depends on whether the NFL is on
What is your favorite genre of music: rock, 80s
Other information: NY Giants! Yo Patsies, still enjoying that 18*-1?
Political Beliefs: hardcore fiscal conservative, anti-government

Abortion: not unless rape or incest
Affirmative Action: is racism
Arms Trade: can't stop it, I fear
Death Penalty: ideologically absolutely in favor, practically on the fence (justice system is not perfect)
Drugs: Marijana should be legal, soft drugs should be condoned
Economic System: capitalist (real capitalism, not corporatism), non-collectivist
Education: parents choice, private schooling is better than public indoctrination
Electoral College in USA Elections: a brilliant invention that prevents a candidate from winning simply by carrying NY, LA and SF by huge enough margins, ensures support across the country. And since USA is not a democracy but a federal republic it should stay. Democracy = mob rule.
Environmentalism: fight against pollution = good, climate change is however a natural phenomenon that cannot be stopped (adapt = necessary).
Euthanasia: if you want, but only if you are certified sane, not because some relative claimed you once said you wanted it.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution, because creation is bullshit (thank you Carlin).
FCC: should be disbanded, I hated them since their anti-Stern campaign of 2003-4.
Gay Marriage: I'd not veto it. But I'll oppose anyone who tries to call it a civil right.
Gun Control: not at all, see second amendment for details.
Immigration Policies: More legal (but not too much), and immediate deportation of all illegals.
Income Tax: Same percentage for everyone, and no more deductions (thus, a much lower rate). Under my no deductions plan the 'rich' will actually pay more.
Israel/Palestine: Israel, because the other side has structurally used terror and teaches its kids to hate (just check Pally TV kids shows, teaching kids that blowing yourself up = good).
Philosophy: sure, if you like.
Political Party Affiliation: No party affiliation.
President Obama/American Policies: Obama has policies? Oh you mean bad ones, yes plenty of those. Oppose em wherever you can, I say.
Prostitution: just tax it, you damn politicians, you love to tax stuff, so tax this. People are not gonna stop having sex just because some fundie politicians want to keep it illegal.
Religion: utter bullshit, especially christianity and islam (the 2 most intolerant, murderous and supremacist ideologies of all times)
Social Security: not for those who can work but refuse.
The UN: disband this immediately, please. Politicians who want to give it control over the USA should be tried for treason and executed.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Not for me, I love meat.
War in Iraq: Kurds win, Saddamites lose. I like that result.
War on Terror: just as dumb as the war on drugs, just take of the gloves and raze all areas where they have some Taleban control. No more Yale/Harvard 'limited war' (McNamara/Rumsfeld-esque) crapola. No negotiating with Taleban, ever. Fundies must be destroyed,

Political Beliefs:
Abortion: should be legal up to 20 weeks, after that only if the mother's life or health is at risk or the baby's health is seriously impaired.
Affirmative Action: should depend on socio-economic status.

Drugs: should be legal, except where use or possession hurts others.
Economic System: mixed system

The Democratic Republic of Golgothastan
Real Name: --
Age: --
General Location: UK
General Political Affiliation [if any]: Liberal libertarian centrist. Should really fuck it all and run away to an anarchist commune.
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Atheist.
Where Did You Find NationStates?: Given link.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Yes.
Professional Goal: Don't care. I currently work in a chemistry department.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Varies. Usually only for films, now that ER and West Wing aren't on.
What is your favorite genre of music: Jazz.
Other information: I'm more boring than you'd think.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: For now at least, 100% pro-choice. Unsure whether it should be on the NHS. More should be done to improve sex education and access to contraception, though.
Affirmative Action: Don't really care. Mildly against.
Arms Trade: Depends who you're selling to. I'd prefer the UK to commit not to sell to places where they'll be used for abusive purposes, and I'd prefer a slowdown in the global arms trade. But then, I'd prefer a Ferrari, so, you know.
Death Penalty: Used to be against "morally". Now I'm not. Maybe I'm even for it. But I don't think it works, so I'm perfectly happy not to bring out. Torture is right out.
Drugs: Very strongly support full legalisation (with age limits). They can tax them if they want. Priority: repeal the magic mushroom ban.
Economic System: Really, really uncertain. The heart of my political dilemma. I tend towards thinking lefty, but at the same time, I don't want to hate freedom. For now: regulated capitalism. Ask me again in ten years.
Education: Improve public schools, don't subsidise private ones. Not wild about tuition fees for university, but how else is it going to be paid for? (Don't say graduate tax...)
Electoral College in USA Elections: I don't really care. The UK does need electoral reform: an elected Lords, a constitution, abolition of the monarchy, separation of church and state. Not sure about proportional representation, or campaign finance.
Environmentalism: Very strongly for. That doesn't mean allying with every dumb cause, though. I believe in global warming, and more needs to be done to stop it - including using nuclear power. And culls of animals like badgers are not an absolute ill.
Euthanasia: Unsure. Should be legal; should be regulated like fuck to prevent abuse - though I don't believe allowing someone to die is itself an abuse.
Evolution or Creation?: I believe in evolution. I don't believe in creation. I don't believe the two are exclusive. Teach the former in biology, the latter in RE.
FCC: Seems like it sucks. Censorship in general: against in almost all cases. I tend towards centrism on most issues; free speech ain't one.
Gay Marriage: Marriage shouldn't be a state institution, but while it is, of course allow it. Let the churches do what they want.
Gun Control: Anti-gun. Pro-choice, probably. If I had my way, I'd cede the decision to very local government. Personally, I'd allow anything up to an assault rifle, insist on background checks, not opposed to concealed carry or registration. Ammunition control seems an idea, and education and amnesties should be more available. Same goes for knives, etc. I will never own one.
Immigration Policies: Let them all in.
Income Tax: This seems (along with other things here) a very American issue: in Europe, we accepted long ago the government was going to fuck us this way. Should be low and progressive, and if other taxes - sales, petrol, car, energy - continue to penalise the poor, should be even lower. The personal allowance for the UK also needs to be a bit more reasonable.
Israel/Palestine: That slash, right there, is about two-thirds of the problem. It's not a black and white issue, and black and white solutions tend to end up with bodies of all colours lying in the streets. That said, I support the idea of a sovereign Palestinian state, and I support the idea of their not voting in Hamas to govern it.
Philosophy: I don't really care. Haven't read enough to pick one and stay with it; have read enough to know I'll never pick one and stay with it.
Political Party Affiliation: None, at present.
President Bush/American Policies: Generally opposed to the Bush administration, more though vague liberal pussiness than anything approaching factual knowledge. "American Policies" - which ones...?
Prostitution: Despite it all, I can't get around to thinking this one is a "right". We should see whether legalisation and regulation works. If it does, full steam ahead...though I can't say I'll be making use of it.
Religion: I'm not an adherent of one. Other people can be, if they want. Secularist.
Social Security: I'm not convinced private charity will cover the gap, and I do think some form of safety net is needed. But public services in the UK are an abject mess at the moment. I'm not outright opposed to privatisation.
The UN: Strongly support the idea, but the organization needs reform. And no, it's not all the USA's fault.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Not my choice what people eat. Not their choice what I eat, either.
War in Iraq: I was against it, once I was sure it was going to happen. I find it hard to care loads, but I suppose that makes me a terrible person.
War on Terror: I'm against terrorism, if that's what you mean. I oppose secret torture camps and imprisonment without trial. I don't blame America for looking out for their own.

What is your favorite genre of music: Disney songs
Other information: none
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Plain and simple child murder, and those who do it must therefore be treated as child murderers.
Affirmative Action: Not the best idea. People should be treated equally at all times.
Arms Trade: Must be stopped. Not only arms trade, but also arms manufacturing.
Death Penalty: Only barbarian nations have that.
Drugs: Outlaw the ones that do severe damage to the body. Smoking cigarettes in public should be outlawed as well.
Economic System: Regulated free market, with things like electricity and water supply owned by the government.
Education: Free for everyone, from kindergarten to university.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Luckily, I don't have anything to do with USA elections.
Environmentalism: Protecting the environment must be a high priority for each government, and international regulations must be implemented to prevent industries from polluting heavily.
Euthanasia: Not in favour, but probably each case should be analysed individually.
Evolution or Creation?: What do you mean, "or"? Each can only work with the other, even if most people nowadays are too stupid to understand that.
FCC: What about it? I'm not familiar with American organisations. :unsure:
Gay Marriage: As long as it's only on the level of civil marriage, it can simply be seen as two people living together, and what goes on inside the four walls is not for the government to mind anyway.
Gun Control: Private gun ownership must be outlawed without exceptions.
Immigration Policies: Let people come and go as they wish.
Income Tax: More income, more tax. For people who earn €10,000,000 a year, 90% isn't too much. That would still leave them with €1,000,000, which is more than enough to live a luxurious life.
Israel/Palestine: Two-state solution is surely the best now. People could have thought of that earlier, mind you, instead of simply evicting countless people without a cent of compensation.
Philosophy: The philosophical scholastic line of Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas.
Political Party Affiliation: All political parties I know are loony.
President Obama/American Policies: Still too early to tell.
Prostitution: Not in favour, but it's their own choice.
Religion: The pillar of civilisation itself, it's the foundation of science, human rights, and democracy.
Social Security: Must be available for everybody who needs it.
The UN: A good idea, but rather useless in practice, unfortunately.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Not a vegetarian myself, but I do understand their point.
War in Iraq: The unfortunate result of silly American propaganda.
War on Terror: Silly American propaganda.

Arms Trade: A very bad thing indeed, but sadly a large part of the modern economy. Needs to be regulated better
Death Penalty: Barbaric, unesscaryand fundamentally flawed in every aspect. No justification
Drugs: Personally? Never. But drugs laws need considerable reform

Immigration Policies: An unanswerable question, but we need to put more resources into infrastructure to cope with immigrnts in lots of areas - these places just can't cope. Asylum seekers should always be given the benefit of the doubt

The UN: A wonderful concept. Like many wonderful concepts, it doesn't really work
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I am a vegetarian, and I think everyone should cut down on meat consumption - it's unhealthy, bad for animals, bad for the world environment, bad for the local environment, bad for farmers and very irresponsible

How many hours a day do you watch TV?: 5-7, television in same room as computer.
What is your favorite genre of music: Classic Rock
Other information: Eagle Scout; Insomniac;
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: I personally believe abortion is immoral, HOWEVER, the alternative, in my opinion, is more immoral as it would create a generation of children who are raised by a mother who did not wish to have them and may resent or even hate them. Therefore, the existence of legalized abortion should be maintained.
Affirmative Action: I think this social policy should be removed, not for any racial reasons, but because it does not work to the benefit of society to force on generations of minorities the idea that they only succeed or advance because exceptions were made for them.
Arms Trade: Ambiguous subject. One one hand it is immoral to murder someone, on the other hand a people have a right to protect themselves. Individuals have a right to keep and bear arms, a right that would be tyrannical to deny.
Death Penalty: Morally wrong, except in the extreme rare cases where a person is such a danger to human society or civilization that permanently removing them is the only safe choice for society.
Drugs:
Economic System: A free market works best, except in certain cases. I believe it immoral for the market to participate in certain sectors, such as defense and health care, which is why I despise mercenary organizations and I support a public option for health care.
Education: I attended private schools for my grade school, middle school and high school, so I have never experienced the public education system outside of college and it would be unfair of me to judge the public school institution either way.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Is designed to protect the smaller states from tyranny by majority and thus should remain.
Environmentalism: Its a shame that the environment is treated the way it is.
Euthanasia: Morally wrong, very difficult subject.
Evolution or Creation?: I believe humans evolved to the point where we were granted souls or developed souls.
FCC: A nonsense organization that forces a puritanical system on the radio and television broadcasters. They interfere in the free markets ability to police the content of broadcasters, they also allow a small number of super corporations to dominate the broadcasting market by allocating all frequency spots to entities like Clear Channel. It is never a free market when a government organization can be controlled and manipulted like this.
Gay Marriage: I don't care if people have civil marriages, they have a right to them.
Gun Control: Individuals have a right to keep and bear arms, a right that would be tyrannical to deny.
Immigration Policies: Immigration should be brought back under control, it is ridiculous that we allow millions to enter the USA every year without properly processing them for possible diseases or ailments.
Income Tax: Income tax is immoral because it in effect turns civilians into slaves to the government. Wages are not income, imo, as they are merely the transformation of physical labor into a currency format, the person who did the labor performed the labor for a portable format that they can use to attain other services and goods. Income should be limited to earned monies unrelated to physical labor, such as stock dividends.
Israel/Palestine: These two groups seem simply unable to coexist. But in the end the pre-1967 borders must be returned to for any hope of peace.
Philosophy: Do what you may, except when you may harm others.
Political Party Affiliation: I am a registered Republican, but I hated Bush's policies and often spoke out against them. I vote with a very Libertarian point of view.
President Obama/American Policies: He could be doing worse, then again he could be doing better.
Prostitution: I personally don't care if someone wants to see those types of services. I am against sex slavery as it forces someone to do something they wish not to do, I am also against child prostitution for the same reasons and the fact that children cannot make those types of decisions about themselves. However, if a free adult wishes to sell sex and they are not spreading diseases, I have no problems with them doing so.
Religion: I was raised Roman Catholic, still am for the most part. I believe in Universal Reconciliation, which states that all humans will eventually reach heaven, even if they must spend some time reflecting on their sins in Hell or Purgatory.
Social Security: Was designed for short term use, not long term. Should be replaced.
The UN: Nice idea, badly executed. At its best the U.N. is ineffectual, at its worse the U.N. is a breeding ground for corruption.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I don't care what another person eats. I am an omnivore.
War in Iraq: I was against invading Iraq, there was absolutely no reason to do so.
War on Terror: I was for intervening in Afghanistan, but it should have been conducted better.

Jedi Women

IM Contacts:
Telegram my nation if you wanna talk
Player Profile:
The Rogue Nation of Jedi Women
Real Name: Sabie
Age: 19
General Location: The South
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: I'm not in favor, I believe life starts when the heart does, which is around 2 weeks. But, I also am not in favor of banning it immediately. I think this would just be worse for women and children over all. Abortion should be moderated, and slowly the time durring the pregnancy when a child can be terminated should be made less and less. (i.e. start with no third trimester abortions, then none after 5 months, four months...etc).
Affirmative Action: Creates the problem it is supposedly trying to fix
Arms Trade: Silly... not really, but the government should be smart about who it sells to and who it allows the private sector to sell to. There's always going to be a black market though
Death Penalty: Complying with my church, I should not be in favor, realistically, I am- somewhat. It's more economical than thousands of life sentences, where prisoners just get to hang out and never work again. But guilt should be proven without a shadow of doubt.
Drugs: Allow people to become more dangerous and stupid than they already are- but we allow alcohol. Smoking (tobacco) deserves to be banned because it's been proven that it kills, and can harm those around a person smoking.
Economic System: Minimally government regulated capitalism.
Education: Is the most important thing... however, as my old school district is discovering, too much regulation hurts the process rather than helps. Standards need to be set that allow a minimum to be reached without dragging down those excelling beyond average.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Seems like a silly idea until you actually try and understand it. Yeah, in some ways it would be great to just go by popular vote, but in the grand scheme, the electoral college helps moderate things and is alright.
Environmentalism: Important, we need a planet to live on. I believe technology and environment can be in harmony.
Euthanasia: If you're going to outlaw euthanasia, then you need to figure out a way to convict suicides. Provided the patient can actually make their wishes known, it should be allowed. I don't like it, but I'll fight for their right to it.
Evolution or Creation?: No reason they can't both be true. Far as I'm concerned, Genesis is a metaphor- I don't think people at the time it was written would have been able to comprehend evolution, so it represents how they could describe creation. If God is GOD, there's no reason he could not have used evolution as a method for creation.
FCC: Sorry- not familiar with FCC. And I'd rather not present an uneducated response.
Gay Marriage: If you've got a problem with calling it marriage, then call it something else. Define it as something else for the "children's sake." I don't approve, but I don't feel I have the right to judge and deny them of the rights they deserve when entering a life long partnership.
Gun Control: For- as far as the government needs to know who has one, what kind, and why. Stuff designed for war and killing should be kept off the streets as much as possible, but protection weapons and hunting weapons should be allowed.
Immigration Policies: We can't fit everybody into one country, there has to be regulation as to who comes in. But, I don't think we need a fence across the southern border.
Income Tax: Should be a flat percentage rate, but to do that would require a complete overhaul and reassignment of how much people earn, because currently, salaries are set to compensate for how much will be taken out. Yes, that sucks for people with lower salaries, but why should people who have worked their way to the top pay a higher percent? At a flat rate, they'll still be giving the government more than you. Everybody pays the same sales tax, why not income tax?
Israel/Palestine: Part of me wants to say "Not our problem, we can not be the world's police" but if there was a way to convince them just to suck it up and be two nations... that would be great.
Philosophy: Should be part of education, not imposing one philosophy on all people, but people should be aware of their own philosophy.
Political Party Affiliation: Liberally conservative...lol. Moderate. I vote conservative not because I'm hardcore, but because I agree with them on issues that are most important to me. And my vote would never help Ralph Nader (btw- that's a joke, I just hang Green party signs in my window to piss off my mom)
President Bush/American Policies: He got a crappy 8 years to be president, the situation would not have changed much if someone else was president. We were due for economic failure (it goes in cycles) and I wouldn't have liked to see anyone else handle the aftermath of 9/11. He wasn't great, but you can't assign him all the blame, stuff still would have happened.
Prostitution: Should be a state by state, or city decision. And should be moderated so that minors are not subjected to it.
Religion: I'm for it! But try not to impose mine on anyone who doesn't want to hear it. You're never going to convert people that way any how. I believe in a merciful God, who will not condemn based on your list of "sins" but rather on the whole of your life.
Social Security: Is gunna screw my generation over, my pay check's going into it, but I'll probably not see anything out of it.
The UN: Helpful in some ways, sitting useless in others.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: We're ominvores, made to eat meat. If you believe in God, you should eat meat. He made animals to eat other animals, and for us to eat them. But if you just want to stick it to veggies... good for you, don't block my way to Micky D's.
War in Iraq: Needs to end. I understand why we went in the first place, but we're no longer helping the situation- and good men and women are dying for a lost cause.
War on Terror: Have at it- if you can actually target people being terrorists... and not just stereotyping and killing innocents.

I know what I believe is right and wrong, I will express that opinion, but I refuse to shove it down other people's throats. If debating, I will staunchly defend my position, but in discussions about what should happen in reality- I'm more moderate and will give more ground. I believe in God- and I believe that it is His judgment, not mine, that matters.
I'm a fan of the Voltaire attributed: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"

What is your favorite genre of music: Metal
Abortion: I support it. Although I hate the misleading terminology surrounding it (Pro life, pro choice, anti choice, etc.)
Affirmative Action: I'm a bit mixed. It's a good idea, but I think it can create situations that are incredibly unfair and foment further racism. I think AA based on financial situations would make more sense.

Have you read any of Max Barry's books: not currently.
Professional Goal: None. I have personal goals, but careers seem a nice way to give your life to somebody else. Should my professional life coincide with my personal life, then I may one day have professional goals.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: none on average. I usually only follow one TV show at a time, and they tend only to be on once a week, and none of them are on right now.
What is your favorite genre of music: Don't have a favourite. I have a dislike for country and western as well as gangster rap.
Other information: None to give.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: A womans right to choose should never be impeded.
Affirmative Action: Disagree on it ideologically, practically it is necessary.
Arms Trade: I have no opinion on the trading of arms other than a wish that people didn't find it necessary.
Death Penalty: We should be above putting our own kind to death.
Drugs: The legal ones seem more problematic than the illegal ones. the western attitude to drugs is immature and unhealthy. on one hand a puritanical fear of them and on the other dangerous overindulgence.
Economic System: The free market fails, and frequently. The French system currently seems to be the best for providing economic security to the most people whilst still allowing the exceptional to excel.
Education: Everyone should be entitled to a full education, including university as long as they work hard enough.
Electoral College in USA Elections: I've no real opinion on it, but as all first past the post systems, it's inefficient and outdated.
Environmentalism: Need more please.
Euthanasia: Humans should die at a time of their choosing.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution, of course.
FCC: What does this mean? I've never heard of it.
Gay Marriage: Of course I am for this. all loving unions should be recognised. I am however, opposed to the denial of certain economic benefits based on marriage status.
Gun Control: Sounds like a good idea.
Immigration Policies: Should be progressive. perhaps we would not have such a high immigration demand if we looked at humanity, rather than just our own back yards?
Income Tax: If you make a lot of money, you have the state to be thankful for your opportunity to do so.
Israel/Palestine: it's interesting to see who can lose the moral high ground fastest. It's almost like they're competing to be the most immature. Israel just has more tanks.
Philosophy: This seems woefully vague. I agree with the concept of philosophy. Am I being asked to describe my philosophy? Happy Nihilism. This is all we have and it's all there is. Make the most of it.
Political Party Affiliation: Liberal Democrat, until someone better comes along.
President Bush/American Policies: I'm glad he's gone. I'm yet to be convinced that the new one is the promised miracle.
Prostitution: Should be legalised and regulated.
Religion: Seems a bit pointless to me, and causes untold misery. Ultimately I can't ask for it to be banned, but I hope people distance themselves from it in my lifetime.
Social Security: I've heard of it. What is this?
The UN: Makes me laugh. Good idea, pathetically implemented.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Whatever makes you happy. I understand the philosophy and even agree with parts, but ultimately I do not see myself as obliged to not eat an animal. I would prefer however, it is kept content and happy during its life. There's no need to be cruel.
War in Iraq: A laughable diversion from the one place that can be salvaged - Afghanistan
War on Terror: A laughable diversion that will be lost just as all the other wars on concepts have been. Silently abandoned when we grow out of it. Target a dangerous human foe and by all means eliminate them, but you can't 'destroy terror' with rockets.

What is your favorite genre of music: Whatever gets the blood flowing.
Other information: Well... I'm 177 cm, 75 kg. I hope to get a master's degree sometime in the next five years.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Why should a woman be forced to carry a rape-baby?
Affirmative Action: We need a race-blind system. Let's have no race entry on the application and conduct the interview with the interviewer and interviewee wearing full body suits and speaking through voice distorters. That should be race-blind enough.
Arms Trade: No worse than other capitalists.
Death Penalty: The ultimate in coercion by the State.
Drugs: Pot, booze, caffeine, I do myself. Meth, crack, PCP... it's your body.

Philosophy: Screw the government.
Political Party Affiliation: Nominally, Democrat, but I'm starting to see that they're just another bunch of rich capitalists.
President Bush/American Policies: Obama isn't bringing change. He's kept the Pentagon the same, has no plans to end torture, and is only pulling out of Iraq to send the troops to Afghanistan. On top of that, he felches AIPAC as much as Bush. He can take his change and shove it up his ass.
Prostitution: See Drugs.
Religion: If it drives you to do good deeds, then great. Otherwise, fuck it.
Social Security: Worthless bureaucratic junk.
The UN: "It is not just for a few states to sit and veto global approvals. Should such a privilege continue to exist, the Muslim world with a population of nearly 1.5 billion should be extended the same privilege." - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Been vegetarian since July 2000 and went vegan in January 2009.
War in Iraq: A continuation of US imperialist goals and strong-arm robbery of smaller states.
War on Terror: Pull our troops from the Middle East, cut off aid to Israel, which doesn't need it anyway, and there will be no terrorism directed against the US

What is your favorite genre of music: Pop-rock
Other information: Needs to get out more
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: It isn't for me to tell someone else how to live their life or dictate what they do with their own body

Arms Trade: not a fan
Death Penalty: Do not believe in the death penalty.
Drugs: legalize marijuana, stiffer penalties for harder drugs
Economic System: regulated capitalism
Education: Needs much more funding
Electoral College in USA Elections: useless, ignores needs of "solid states" to pander to "swing states"
Environmentalism: GO GREEN REVOLUTION!
Euthanasia: Should be allowed when patient gives informed consent and is in terminal condition
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution, I have no reason to believe that an invisible man in the clouds did everything
FCC: Damn Commies!!!
Gay Marriage: The sooner nations stop denying legal rights to same sex couples, the better
Gun Control: You use rifles to hunt animals. You use assault weapons and pistols to hunt people, there's no need for such weapons, ever
Immigration Policies: border services must be funded enough to screen out those entering illegally, system should be reformed to recognize foreign degrees more easily
Income Tax: a necessary evil.
Israel/Palestine: two-state strategy is integral to final solution
Philosophy: stand up for those beaten down
Political Party Affiliation: I'm a proud New Democrat, through and through
President Bush/American Policies: He was an unmitigated disaster whose policies are almost directly responsible for the current American fiscal crisis.

Religion: Great when its kept as PERSONAL beliefs.
Social Security: desperately in need of reform, privatization is not the answer
The UN: security council needs to have veto override abilities
Veganism/Vegetarianism: mainstream is cool, radicals are domestic terrorists
War in Iraq: another of Bush's unmitigated disasters, in on a lie and out with no accomplishments
War on Terror: conquering the world, one easily scapegoated minority at a time. You wanna catch terrorists, you use cops. You wanna blow up the world and pretend you're trying to catch terrorists, you use an army

Professional Goal: I'm a CS engineer, and like it
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: At most ~2h/week
What is your favorite genre of music: No real favorite
Other information: Outside CS and politics, I play pen&paper RPG and read fantasy/sf books
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Information about contraception is the priority, but right to chose is fundamental.
Affirmative Action: Depends.
Arms Trade: Evil.
Death Penalty: Barbaric, inhuman, useless.
Drugs: It's bad and you shouldn't use them, but forbidding them is no solution. I support legalizing soft drugs like canabis, but running education programs against drugs.
Economic System: Communism
Education: Very important part of society, should be free (including books, ...) for everyone, and all-life education should be promoted.
Electoral College in USA Elections: N/A
Environmentalism: We have to preserve our planet, this is a fundemantal duty towards coming generations. Capitalism is destroying it.
Euthanasia: Should be legal but tightly controlled to avoid absuses.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: hum ?
Gay Marriage: Should be allowed. Gays (and lesbians) should have exactly the same rights.
Gun Control: Gnus are bad. They kill people. They should be completly outlawed.
Immigration Policies: People who flee their countries because they risk death should be welcomed. Anyway, mixing of cultures is good for everyone.
Income Tax: Should cover all basic needs, and be very progressive.
Israel/Palestine: Both people have the right to a state. Israel should stop violating international laws and UN resolution, and remove all colonies beyond the "green line". That's the only way to stop terrorism and achieve peace, in the long term.
Philosophy: Democratic Communism ?
Political Party Affiliation: French Communist Party (PCF)
President Bush/American Policies: President Bush is a war criminal, and should be judged by an international court.
Prostitution: No clear idea. Under capitalism, it's the ultimate form of exploitation, when women who have nothing are forced to sell their own bodies. But in a society were no one would be forced to do this "job", dunno.
Religion: Religion clouds the ability to think rationnaly, and easily lead to fanatism. It's a dangerous think. But on the other way, as Marx says, "Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature. It's the heart of an hearless world, the soul of a hopeless time. It's the opium of the people". Of course, anyone should be free to have his own believes, as long as he doesn't force them upon others.
Social Security: Necessary to maintain a human society. Solidarity and generosity is what make us humans.
The UN: Great idea, but very badly implemented. No single country should have a veto right.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: The society should people who want to live as vegeterian to do it (restaurants should propose vegan food, ...), but it's up to anyone to chose. I personally like meat and dislike vegetables too much to be vegan ;)
War in Iraq: A crime. Those who ordered it should be judged for that.
War on Terror: A clever way to make people accept attempts to reduce freedoms and wage wars all over the planet. But an utter stupidity. The only way to stop terrorism is to stop imperialism, to stop supporting dictatures as western countries do so often, to stop imposing a reckless economic order (neoliberalism) which drive half of the world population to starve.

Where Did You Find NationStates?: Whilst wasting time traipsing about on deh Interwebz
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Jennifer Government
Professional Goal: Enough job satisfaction to enjoy going to work.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: 0.5 to 1.5, depending on what's in-season.
What is your favorite genre of music: Rock
Other information: Current college student with undecided career path.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: I'd prefer to see a lot more federal funding towards education, prevention, and adoption, but Roe v Wade was constitutionally correct.
Affirmative Action: Not enough emphasis on economic background, too much favoritism for certain racial minority factors. Needs to be reworked, not completely eliminated, and should try to create an even playing field in high-school and college as its primary goals.
Arms Trade: Needs to be open, but with regulations and thoroughness.
Death Penalty: Inefficient, expensive, too risky, and simply unjust. I think an extra fifty years being forced to do hard labor in New Mexico or Alaska would be more unpleasant than a decent last meal and extra protection from the guards.
Drugs: Legalize Marijuana, and stop filling prisons with small time users.
Economic System: Open and Fair Market Capitalism. Regulating needs to have teeth, and regulating agencies need to understand that healthy market systems are clean and honest market systems.
Education: Government subsidized loans and grants, as well as tuition paying programs that make full use of educated minds like Teach for America have a statistically proven record of advancing a nation's economy.
Electoral College in USA Elections: It is a system that gives a man in Wyoming five times the voting power of a person in California. I say scrap it, or fundamentally change it to give more preference to the winner of the popular vote.
Environmentalism: Important, and should be a priority. Economic damage of environmental harm is far greater than the costs of preventing the damage in the first place.
Euthanasia: Severe reservations against this, but should be available for terminal illnesses after exhausting other options or equivalent heroic efforts.
Evolution or Creation?: Fossil Record and Geology paint a picture equivalent to: E V O _ U T _ O N. Though I don't discount the idea of a supreme architect setting such a process in motion.
FCC: Freedom of speech is integral to a free society, and Americans have too many hang-ups about sex.
Gay Marriage: Oh, for First Amendment sakes', Marriage is itself a religious institution pre-dating any civil government in antiquity. Make all couples, gay or straight, file for civil unions for things like health benefits, tax-filing, joint property ownership, etc. Want to get married? Find a willing priest, rabbi, imam, pastor, or equivalent in whatever religion you decide to call home.
Gun Control: Bad Idea. Outlawing guns and outlaws having guns aside, there is no statistical correlation between any ban on firearms and a decrease in violent crime. In fact, the reverse is true. Utah is the only state in the Union that requires universities to allow all licensed visitors and members to retain their concealed firearms, and I've yet to hear about a shooting on one of the campuses in their state.
Immigration Policies: Flawed. If the economics can justify migrant workers, than make it easier for the willing to enter and gain employment legally and with documentation, while at the same time preventing undocumented aliens. Even if it means deporting Superman to his Arctic fortress and asking him to apply for a visa.
Income Tax: Necessary, but full of loopholes and other flaws that a flat national sales tax might alleviate. I'm still out on this one.
Israel/Palestine: Two-state solution. Undo the settlements, and those that wish to stay can so long as all inhabitants are guaranteed citizenship wherever they choose to remain. As for Jerusalem, that is one city that should be under direct international control, and the U.N. should toy with the idea of having UNESCO declare the entire freaking city a World Heritage Site. Saladin and Richard the Lionheart's agreements on free pilgrimage should be brought back in full effect.
Philosophy: Platonic Realism (a form of Objectivism, if my Philosophy professors are to be believed), though that's simply 'cause I'm a Classics Major. Give me enough time, and enough books, and I might have a better answer for you.
Political Party Affiliation: Unaffiliated, though every election cycle I look to see if I should make a temporary affiliation.
President Obama/American Policies: Voted for Obama, though would have preferred Gore back in 2000. The high number of problems can not be laid at any particular president's feet, but rather at the American public for allowing it to happen. A sufficiently aware society would have seen the current crisis coming and prevented the housing bubble from bursting long ago. As for Healthcare, that's a whole other topic.
Prostitution: Legalize it, offer oversight.
Religion: There is a wall of separation between Church and State. This wall is very high, and should remain at this height. Chaplains offering non-denominational prayers for Congress (assuming that they aren't all dolts in this one particular area) are fine by me, but try it in schools, and them's fighting words.
Social Security: Currently the only legal Ponzi scheme in the U.S.A., and this needs to be better managed/reformed.
The UN: It lacks teeth, a spine, and apparently eyes. Anybody up for a do-over?
Veganism/Vegetarianism: No. Three words: Bacon Double Cheeseburger. No way am I giving that up.
War in Iraq: A mistake, though now we need to fix what we can.
War on Terror: Poorly named, poorly handled, poorly conceived. We should have just gone after Osama and been done with it.

Professional Goal: Musician with wise investments.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: None. I waste my life on the internet.
What is your favorite genre of music: Orchestral rock, Halo-style.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Pro-choice.
Affirmative Action: Very good idea. Interesting to watch the overly literal interpretations of it, though.
Arms Trade: Loosen gun control a bit and sap the black market. Illegal sales are BAD.
Death Penalty: Nope. Life in prison is potentially worse for the psyche.
Drugs: Disapprove of illegal drug use, but find the claims that marijuana will ruin your life interesting given that the last three presidents have smoked it.
Economic System: Favour deregulation, but there have to be limits. WorkChoices was a horrible idea.
Education: Creationism is not science, nor is abstinence-only sex ed.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Not a USian, but think that as soon as direct election becomes practicable it should be implemented.
Environmentalism: Firmly in favour of sustainable energy and looking for heavier enforcement of Kyoto. The US needs to sign it also.
Euthanasia: is an individual right and as such should be legal.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: Tear it down. Everything is worthy of broadcast - if people don't like it, they won't watch it.
Gay Marriage: Government in the bedroom is a bad thing.
Gun Control: The US is just fine as is. The Commonwealth of Nations needs to loosen up a little, though.
Immigration Policies: Legal immigration should be easier, so as to cut down on illegal immigration. See 'arms trade' above.
Income Tax: Only what the government needs in order to run.
Israel/Palestine: I support Israel.
Philosophy: Some of it is deep. Some of it is BS.
Political Party Affiliation: Australian Labour Party. Probably voting Liberal if this Cleanfeed BS is implemented.
President Bush/American Policies: Bush wasn't the worst president the US has ever had, but certainly close to it. Obama represents change, which is what the US needs.
Prostitution: Legalise it. See 'arms trade' and 'immigration policies' for a general idea why.
Religion: As long as it's moderate, it's fine. Evangelism sickens me.
Social Security: Dole bludgers rub me the wrong way. There are, however, those who do actually need social security.
The UN: works nicely when people refuse to recognise they have problems. Kind of like an intervention for the international psyche.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: shows an impressive level of commitment and may be the way to go, but isn't my style.
War in Iraq: Done badly. Would have been better if US had had a more solid premise.
War on Terror: Needs to happen, but some of the homeland security measures going on are just ridiculous.

Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Squicks me out, but I believe in it in principle
Affirmative Action: Wish it weren't necessary, probably oppose in principle more than in practice
Arms Trade: Terrifying, wish it didn't exist
Death Penalty: I'd support it for murder if proof could be absolute, but it can't, so I oppose it
Drugs: Controlled supply with heavy taxation may be the best policy
Economic System: Inherently unsustainable in the very long run
Education: The key to facilitating realisations like the one above, must not become corporatised
Electoral College in USA Elections: Devalues the votes of anyone outside swing states, and is out-and-out stupid
Environmentalism: Probably my biggest passion. We need to maintain a society for future centuries, even if it's unrecognisable from this one
Euthanasia: See also: abortion
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution
FCC: Can't really judge from this distance, but suspect them to be too conservative
Gay Marriage: How much harm can it really do?
Gun Control: Probably a good idea
Immigration Policies: Almost impossible to judge, a utilitarian approach is ideal but highly impractical
Income Tax: Should be low but strongly progressive, not kicking in until around the median wage; taxation on environmentally-unfriendly purchases should take a bigger role instead
Israel/Palestine: A situation that confuses me beyond belief
Philosophy: Utilitarianism
Political Party Affiliation: Mild leanings to the Green Party
President Bush/American Policies: Built around a disturbing ideology, the replacement can't be worse
Prostitution: Utterly incomprehensible to me, to the point that I find a view on it very hard to hold
Religion: Better for individuals than society. If it were a product, it'd be taxed to correct an externality
Social Security: Could be made less of a safety net if low earners were largely untaxed
The UN: A bold attempt to do the impossible, the world is probably better for its existence
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I've got as far as the latter on land-use grounds. I could never pull off the former, to my chagrin
War in Iraq: A mistake that's now increasingly looking impossible to correct
War on Terror: A smokescreen for mistakes such as the above

Where Did You Find NationStates?: Lurking another forum.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No sir.
Professional Goal: Thinking of being a surgeon, but this will probably change by next month.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Maybe 1 or 2 during the season.
What is your favorite genre of music: I can stand to listen to a specific genre of music for too long, but I'm good with anything except most country or jazz.
Other information: Nah, I'm not interesting enough for that.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Personally, the thought of it makes me cringe. However, if it were outlawed tomorrow I would definitely be fighting to get it back.
Affirmative Action: Outdated and poorly executed.
Arms Trade: Stricter, please.
Death Penalty: Only in extreme cases.
Drugs: Certain soft drugs should be legalized, but strictly regulated.
Economic System: I have too much to say about this, and I'm too tired of saying it.
Education: More funding, please.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Usually does the trick.
Environmentalism: The issue's not simple enough for this survey.
Euthanasia: Absolutely. People with debilitating diseases should be able to end their lives on their own terms.
Evolution or Creation?: I've come to believe that Creationism is ludicrous.
FCC: I'm sick of hearing people saying that all censorship is wrong - of course, I am always against banning books and things like that, but that doesn't mean that I'm okay with swearing and excessive violence on TV.
Gay Marriage: Go for it.
Gun Control: More, please.

Income Tax: Should be lowered.
Israel/Palestine: I'd be good if they'd just stop blowing each other up.

Social Security: Enormous mess.
The UN: Good in theory, laughable in practice.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Cool. I'm still down with eating cows, though.
War in Iraq: Oh, dear.
War on Terror: I think it's healthy that the American people can see that they can still very easily be manipulated.

Other infomation: http://www.theforsakenoutlaw.com
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Against except in the case of rape, death to mother/child, or mental retardation.
Affirmative Action: Against.
Arms Trade: Pro, but only to approved nations.
Death Penalty: Pro, for the crimes of rape, murder, treason, or crimes against children.
Drugs: Against.
Economic System: Capitalist but corporations are not above the law.
Education: Pro, the children are the future but education should reflect actual grades, none of this "Well Ds are Bs without a belt" crap.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Pro, the American people are obviously, after 2000, too stupid to push the right buttons.
Environmentalism: We shouldn't trash the environment but at the same time trees are not more important than people and the Earth is a self-sustaining entity.
Euthanasia: Pro, for terminal illness or mental retardation.
Evolution or Creation?: I couldn't possibly hazard a guess as to which is correct.
FCC: Apathetic.
Gay Marriage: Against. It defies nature.
Gun Control: Gun control is hitting your target.
Immigration Policies: Allowing a set number of legal individuals I am not against as long as the number is low, perhaps under 250,000. Illegals must be sent back.
Income Tax: It should be a flat-tax.
Israel/Palestine: Tit-for-tat. Neither side is right, neither side is wrong. I do side with the Israelis though.
Philosophy: Philosophy is important but philosophy must be proven through the use of history. Everything comes from political science, as does philosophy, so the truth is in history.
Political Party Affiliation: Though I am conservative I am a registered Republican.
President Bush/American Policies: Bush is a moron. I did vote for him though because it boiled down to this. "I know what I am getting with Bush; I don't know what I am getting with Kerry."
Prostitution: Against.
Religion: I am agnostic but to the point where I would take a stand against/for religion, I would not. I would however, tax them.
Social Security: Against.
The UN: Against. They violate sovereignty and are utterly useless.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Every time I see a vegan or a vegetarian I want to kill a cow and eat a piece of steak in front of them and make sure it's medium-rare.
War in Iraq: I'm for it though I think we ought to hit them differently. I am not entirely fond though of going for it before we caught Osama.
War on Terror: How do you fight terrorism? You need to fight on so many fronts, in so many countries. Terrorism is a threat though and whilst thinking you will stomp it out is foolhearty, it should not be allowed to run around without check.

Have you read any of Max Barrys books: I plan to, but not yet. School gets in the way of things like reading and acquiring knowledge.
Professional Goal: I plan to either write books with philosophical undertones or become a political activist for more civil liberties and capitalism
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Depends, but I can watch a lot somedays, it's been my main activity since I lost regular internet access.
What is your favorite genre of music: Heavy Metal
Other information: Meh.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: I personally consider it immoral, but the woman owns he body and has a right to expel other humans from it.
Affirmative Action: It is complete B.S.
Arms Trade: Perfectly legitimate in the private sector
Death Penalty: Against it.
Drugs: Should be legal.
Economic System: Capitalism, pure capitalism.
Education: I believe in the private sector taking care of education, not everyone has to read you know.
Electoral College in USA Elections: It is irrelevant, the current U.S. political system should be abolished and replaced with private enterprise.
Environmentalism: Since oil and other fossil fuels are getting so high private enterprise would have to start developing sustainable(and consequentially more environmentally friendly) energy. If it wasn't for government corporate welfare this would most likely happen.
Euthanasia: For animals? Yeah, I guess. For people? I think it is horribly immoral, but if the persona chooses or has a living will they should be able to have it performed on them.
Evolution or Creation?: I don't think it really matters in the big picture, I have stopped caring about trivial things like that.
FCC: I don't like it. It is censorship.
Gay Marriage: I personally think it is sinful, but marriage shouldn't be government regulated to begin with.
Gun Control: All arms should be allowed to all people, only the seller should decide whio he does or doesn't want to sell to.
Immigration Policies: None, I prefer an open border. But in a world as I see it the nation state would be obsolete.
Income Tax: All taxes are immoral theft imposed by those with a monopoly on force.
Israel/Palestine: Israel is a rogue state.
Philosophy: Anarcho-capitalistic beliefs, people like Murray Rothbard are who I like to read about.
Political Party Affiliation: I would be one, but I'm not old enough to participate in the ageist political system my government has.
President Bush/American Policies: They are overly imperialist, but it's really just history repeating itself.
Prostitution: It is really immoral, and kind of sick, but in the interest of civil liberties and free trade it should be allowed. Albeit I wish it would just go away.
Religion: I think all religions should be legal, although personally I see all religions that do not incorporate divine salvation from a supreme God as immoral.
Social Security: It's kind of Orwellian and really left-wing.
The UN: There should be no nations, the UN shouldn't even exist.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I believe it is a personal choice, I am personally an omnivore.
War in Iraq: Wars are immoral except in defense, invasions are immoral too. Wait for the bad guy to come to you.
War on Terror: See above.

Drugs: It's your body. Not my position to look after you.

Euthanasia: Yes but only after all other avenues of treatment have been covered
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: Censorship is on the way out.
Gay Marriage: Yes.
Gun Control: No need for them in the general populace.

Income Tax: Taxes are needed to keep the country running.
Israel/Palestine: Neither. It's about time peace just came to that area.
Philosophy: Live and let live.

President Bush/American Policies: Possibly the worst president the US has ever had...
Prostitution: Make it a legal profession. Health and Safety would be key.
Religion: People need something to believe in. For some that is religion.
Social Security: Hooray!
The UN: great in theory, not so great in practicality.

Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Have now read Jennifer Government.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Very few. I tend to have the news on in the background when I'm on the PC but, other than that, I only watch live football and the occasional documentary.
What is your favorite genre of music: my musical taste is too varied to label.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Should be up to the pregnant woman.
Affirmative Action: Probably harmful to all in the long term.
Arms Trade: Ambivalent, but don't trust Big Business to do the 'right' thing.
Death Penalty: Against.
Drugs: Should be legalised. The state should not dictate what people can and cannot do, as long as what they do does not (directly) negatively impact others.
Economic System: Consumerism is slavery. I haven't come up with a better system though.
Education: Should be available to all. Everyone should be free to study up to their ability level. More knowledge is good.
Environmentalism: A wonderful idea. People who disagree are either stupid, brainwashed or too self-centred to care. I fear that what we're doing just now may be too little, too late.
Euthanasia: If people want to die, let them.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution. The idea of Creationists using computers still makes me giggle.
Gay Marriage: Doesn't bother me in the slightest.
Immigration Policies: Some kind of policy has to exist, I suppose.
Income Tax: Essential.
Israel/Palestine: Meh, that damned religion thing causing trouble again. Wish they'd all just grow up a bit.
President Bush/American Policies: A sadly misguided man, and some seriously blinkered policies. America as a whole isn't all bad, though.
Prostitution: Should be legal. If someone wants to sell sex, that should be their choice, not the State's.
Religion: I'm a bit exasperated that it's still the predominant factor in so many peoples' lives. I'd hoped the 20th century would have seen it off. Now have high hopes for the 21st.
The UN: An excellent idea as a stopgap between petty nationalism and proper internationalism. Badly implemented though, and hamstrung by having to pander to national interests.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Definitely a more sustainable lifestyle by virtue of being a far more efficient use of fresh water resources, and therefore a good idea. The pointy teeth in my mouth that are a marker of my evolutionary heritage go hand in hand with the urge for an occasional steak, though.
War in Iraq: Saddam should have been removed the first time around. The current debacle is an embarrassment to the so-called 'civilised West'.
War on Terror: A thinly-veiled excuse for a pogrom-style assault on the various peoples around the world who wont kow-tow to the U.S. and its close allies. Really, it's a horrible idea and only exists as a banner to rally people to stand behind all the 'with us or against us' rhetoric.

Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Pro-Life, minus medical emergencies (life of the mother is in danger and the baby has or will die, if the mother is under the age of 14 and is a rape victim.)
Affirmative Action: Pro (All for equal opportunity, but the program itself has some flaws that need addressed.)
Arms Trade: Against (Weapons should not be traded.)
Death Penalty: Against
Drugs: For Regulation (Medicine is good, recreational not so much.)
Economic System: Capitalism
Education: For (Everyone deserves the chance to reach their potential.)
Environmentalism: Pro-Green
Euthanasia: Pro if no cure exists and the person is in irrevocable pain (also, the person must be competent to make such a decision and they must make it.) Freedom.
Evolution or Creation?: Creation (Intelligent Design)
FCC: Pro
Gay Marriage: Pro (Marriage is just the term people use for it. I think people get to hung up on the terms, marriage vs. civil union. They have a right to be happy and live their life. We shouldn't judge.)
Gun Control: For Regulation (Keep the guns out of the hands of criminals and children. Don't confuse this, I am pro militia.)
Immigration Policies: Pro (Illegal Immigration should be ended. If you enter the country and are a legal immigrant you should be welcomed.)
Income Tax: Pro
Philosophy: Christian
Political Party Affiliation: Democratic (U.S.A.)
President Obama/American Policies: President Obama will hopefully be the change that we need. We need real action and none of that smoke screen stuff. None-the-less, he is President and should be respected.
Prostitution: Against (should be illegal everywhere and the Illegal Rings need to be stopped, they kidnap young women)
Religion: Christian
The UN: Pro
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I'm not one, but that is your decision.
War in Iraq: Against (Don't confuse this, I am For the Troops 100%)
War on Terror: For, Terrorism is a horrible thing. However, a clear line needs to be drawn. Terrorism does not equal religion, any religion. That is their excuse. They are unrelated.

Abortion: Pro-Choice

Arms Trade: Know very little about it.
Death Penalty: I think It's ok in some cases.
Drugs: Never would use them, but I see no reason to attempt to ban them, people will use them anyways.
Economic System: Unsure
Education: Very important, homeschooling usually isn't a good thing.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Don't know much about it, but why can't we pick instead?
Environmentalism: We live here on earth, lets keep it nice so we and other things can continue to live here. Probably the most important issue for me.
Euthanasia: Someone wants to die, let them.
Evolution or Creation?: Both
FCC: Screw them.
Gay Marriage: I see no reason why any kind of marriage should be banned if everyone consents.
Gun Control: Against
Immigration Policies: Make it easier to come here legally
Income Tax: Tax the wealthy more.
Prostitution: Legalize it
Religion: Is a tool often used to control people. Of course, that doesn't mean some of the things they focus on can't be right.
Social Security: Don't know a great deal about it, sounds like I'm paying for something I won't get to use.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Great that it reduces impact on environment and less cruelty to animals, I'm starting to consider it. (And this is from someone who never even had a salad before this year)
War in Iraq: From what I know about it, we really don't have much of a reason to be there.
War on Terror: Stupid idea, how can you expect to win that?

Where Did You Find NationStates?: I can't recall.

Professional Goal: I'm not sure.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Never.
What is your favorite genre of music: Anything except (c)rap, black metal, or death metal
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: I basically agree with Venndee. Abortion is murder and violates the unborn's rights. Aborting a fetus is akin to throwing someone who boarded the wrong flight out of a plane. However, when the child is older, he should compensate the mother for the costs she incurred if she so chooses.
Affirmative Action: Genuine meritocracy should replace affirmative action.
Arms Trade: Arms trade between states is immoral. Arms trade between individuals is fine.
Death Penalty: Only for very heinous crimes, and only when it is proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the accused is guilty.
Drugs: Private property owners, not the state, should decide whether to allow drugs on their property.
Economic System: 100% laissez faire capitalism. This can be possible only if there is no state.
Education: Education should be the responsibility of parents and families, or religious institutions or private schools, not the state.
Electoral College in USA Elections: I hate elections in general.
Environmentalism: The free market provides the most effective means for conservation.
Euthanasia: If a person wishes to die, that's their right. No one else should have a say in the matter.
Evolution or Creation?: Who cares?
FCC: Abolish it. Censorship is never justified. If you find content objectionable, change the station/channel.
Gay Marriage: Gays should have the same rights as everyone else - no more, no less. But if a church/mosque/synagogue/whatever refuses to sanction a gay marriage, so be it.
Gun Control: This is best left to private property owners. They, not the state, should decide whether guns are allowed on their property.
Immigration Policies: Immigration is best for private property owners, not bureaucrats, to decide.
Income Tax: Taxation is legalized theft. All forms of taxation should be abolished.
Israel/Palestine: Don't care.
Philosophy: Rothbardian private property anarchism mixed with feudalism and cultural conservatism, with some monarchist leanings.
Political Party Affiliation: I hate political parties.
President Bush/American Policies: Bush is a statist mercantalist par-excellence, and an imperialist to boot. One of the worst Presidents ever.
Prostitution: As with drugs, this is an issue best left for private property owners to decide.
Religion: What about it?
Social Security: Don't privatize plunder. Do away with it altogether. End Social(ist) (In)Security without delay.
The UN: What happened to the dinosaurs and to the League of Nations should also happen to the UN.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: To each his own, but for every animal you don't eat, I vow to eat three.
War in Iraq: Unjust, unprovoked, unnecessary, and immoral. All foreign forces should withdraw at once.
War on Terror: An ill-defined war with illusory goals, whose sole purpose is to enrich the political elite at the expense of the citizenry.

General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Daoist
Where Did You Find NationStates?: I don't remember...
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No. But I'm still looking for Jennifer Government.
Professional Goal: Finishing uni at the moment. Maybe a science fiction writer and/or consulting detective.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: <1
What is your favorite genre of music: Jazz, classic rock, classical, blues; anything that isn't constantly blaring at 120 dB.
Other information: I'm a compulsive lurker. This isn't my first nation either.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: It's really the woman's choice here, although I don't support partial birth abortions.
Affirmative Action: N/A
Arms Trade: It ought to be regulated. Arms are rather dangerous and could kill people.
Death Penalty: Against. Let's don't sink to the same level as the criminals themselves.
Drugs: It's your choice if you want to take them. I wouldn't advise it, I've seen the effects firsthand, but your choice.
Economic System: Socialism.

Electoral College in USA Elections: Nothing more than an historical anomaly, although it's really the US's call on it.

Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: What?

Immigration Policies: Immigration should be unregulated. I don't see the point of classifying people as "legal" or "illegal" just because they come from different countries.
Income Tax: Progressive tax rates, but preferably not to the point of wealth redistributing. Maybe 5-10% for lower-income families and 10-15% for higher-income.
Israel/Palestine: Israel. While both sides should share the blame for the struggle in the area, Israel appears to have attempted more to further peace than the Palestinian groups such as Hamas.

Political Party Affiliation: None
President Bush/American Policies: They make me thankful I don't live there. ^_^

Abortion: Nothing's wrong. It's just religious beliefs that stops this from being a normal thing.
Death Penalty: I say give inmates a second chance. If they fail, then they deserve the death penatly.
Drugs: Go ahead if they want to get high. Just don't use it while doing anything else.

Where Did You Find NationStates?: A friend linked to it a long time ago.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Not yet.
Professional Goal: Civil Engineering, eventually project management.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Varies wildly, average about 1-4.
What is your favorite genre of music: No specific favorite, just whatever I'm in the mood to hear.
Other information: I've lurked on these boards for a long time, finally decided to start posting recently.

Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Allowed, without question.
Affirmative Action: Assuming I'm understanding it correctly, no real issue with it.
Arms Trade: Would prefer it be shut down, but I have no real hope of that ever happening.
Death Penalty: Against.
Drugs: For legalization accompanied with regulation.
Economic System: Still working on that.
Education: Public School should be available and mandatory up until high school.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Don't see the point, maybe someone can enlighten me.
Environmentalism: Definitely see the need for effective environmental policies. All possible avenues of sustainability and environmental protection should at least be considered and possibly explored.
Euthanasia: Assuming the patient can give informed consent, not my place to decide.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: An organization with important regulatory powers that too often gets involved in silly moralistic disputes about content.
Gay Marriage: For. This shouldn't even be an issue.
Gun Control: For control, but not for outright abolition.
Immigration Policies: Mostly open borders, though I do believe that everyone going in and out should be checked.
Income Tax: Don't like paying it, but I certainly do enjoy the benefits of many government services.
Israel/Palestine: A giant mess.
Philosophy: Haven't studied much yet. Plan to once I finish with my engineering degree.
Political Party Affiliation: Democrat, mostly due to lack of viable options.
President Obama/American Policies: Voted for Obama, and there are too many policies to discuss in one little post.
Prostitution: For legalization, assuming proper regulations can actually protect the people involved.
Religion: Raised Catholic, but agnostic personally.
Social Security: I support the system, though I do wonder how the US system can be improved. Haven't looked to far into that yet.
The UN: Definitely support, but I haven't decided whether or not it needs a greater military presence for peace-keeping operations/resolution enforcement.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I know I should probably be following one of the two, but I honestly haven't made the effort to switch to one.
War in Iraq: Should never have started, and needs to be wrapped up as soon as possible.
War on Terror: Never liked this "War on X" concept. Frankly, I don't feel that direct military force is the proper tool for limiting/preventing terrorism.

Mikertaz Kein
Picture:
IM Contacts:
I do not operate an IM for they are evil.
Player Profile:
The Diplomatic Peoples of Mikertaz Kein
Real Name: Shawn Lee Carroll
Age: 15 (surprise surprise?)
10/03/93
General Location: United States of America
General Political Affiliation: Once more, Independent with Liberal tendencies.
General Religious Affiliation: I am technically a 'Christian', but I am really a very open person who finds religious nuts as idiotic as any atheist...
Where Did You Find NationStates?: While searching for 'nation simulators' on Google.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No, but I plan on changing that.
Professional Goal: I plan on becoming a psychologist/councilor for middle school-high school aged individuals. If that doesn't work out for me, I will just take what I can get.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: It depends on what is showing...
What is your favorite genre of music: I listen to and enjoy every genre except for opera.
Political Beliefs:
I consider myself an independent with liberal tendencies. While there are many other qualities that describe me, I will leave it at that for now.
Abortion: It is the right of the person to do what they wish to their bodies. I will not force my views or religious beliefs on any one else, regardless of what I personally feel.
Affirmative Action: While every race deserves equality, no one race should have greater benefits than another.
Arms Trade: While guns are a necessity, at least in my opinion, I feel that the arms trade must be limited in the interest of human survival.
Death Penalty: An eye for an eye, 'nuf said.
Drugs: I have no problem with the use of drugs, so long as your use does not interfere with others rights.
Economic System: While the free market economy is 'You get what you work for', I feel that some aspects of a nations economy need to be regulated, subsidized, or even controlled entirely by the government.
Education: An education should be important to any individual, however, compulsory attendance is required until a person reaches 16. If a student wishes to attend school, the parents should not be allowed to restrict that. If a student does not wish to attend school, the parents/proper authorities should make sure he does. however, simply being at school should not be grounds to loss of rights. Nor should there be excessive regulations imposed for the simple reason that they are allowed.
Electoral College in USA Elections: While a 'representative' democracy is nice, direct democracy is what we should have. The 'popular vote' has shown that it is possible to tally/count votes from every person in the country. That, coupled with advancements in electronic voting, show that it can also be done efficiently.
Environmentalism: The environment is important, but it is important to know what can be done to heal the damage caused rather than squabble about it. I do not agree with many 'Green Freaks', but I agree sustainable management is something that needs to be enforced.
Euthanasia: When it is for the right reasons, euthanasia is fine for those who decide they want it. Arguing that it is 'against gods will' is just breaking the separation of church and state. Such things should not influence laws.
Evolution or Creation?: Both. God created earth and many of its creatures, but there is nothing saying that we cannot evolve. This is Gods way of letting Earth play though its natural cycle.
FCC: Well, if there are people who say what can and cant be shown, then I guess we should be told who we can and cant vote for.
Gay Marriage: I have no problem with gay/lesbian marriage. The fact that they are denied what any man and woman are given is absurd.
Gun Control: The second amendment gives us the right to bear arms(own weapons). Not the right to operate turret systems, missile launchers, explosive rounds, or full-combat artillery. The sooner we all understand what common sense means, the sooner we can all own and operate great weapons for a hobby.
Immigration Policies: What country does not want a higher population? If there are job shortages, then we need to create more jobs. That is the beauty of a market economy.
Income Tax: While taxing someones income is not right, we still need to be able to run our government. Unless we are able to operate without an income tax, I say it is necessary.
Israel/Palestine: They are both problems that need to be handled with great care.
Philosophy: Until the world learns to work together, we can never truly progress...
Political Party Affiliation: None. I consider myself Independent, although I lean to one side or another on certain issues.
President Obama/American Policies: He is doing what he can and he is doing a hell of a lot better than some of our formers. Unfortunately, rumors, falsies, and general hate seem to be making him seem much worse than he really is.
Prostitution: If both parties are consenting, why not? Any diseases must be considered in the consent part.
Religion: As above, I am technically a 'Christian', but I am really a very open person who finds religious nuts as idiotic as any atheist...
Social Security: If you worked for the money, you should have it to fall back on should anything happen. Those who take advantage of the system are what make me mad.
The UN: A nice step toward cooperation, but still not quite what 'cooperation' should look like. The UN is more like the naggy mother than a collective brotherhood...
Veganism/Vegetarianism: It is the right of the person to at what they want, although I personally cannot imagine a diet without some type of animal course.
War in Iraq: Needs to end soon. It has gone on far enough. If we are no longer wanted there, we need not be there.
War on Terror: War? :rofl: I wish we were organized enough to call THAT a war...

Political Beliefs:
Abortion should be an option up to fetal viability, but can doesn't mean should.
Affirmative Action should be based on socioeconomic status, not skin color.
Arms Trade needs to be defined better, but if you're talking official deals between countries, it's probably not a good idea.
Death Penalty is absolutely barbaric and outdated.
Drugs should be looked at on a case-by-case basis, and cannabis specifically should be decriminalized.
Economic System: *looks at Denmark and France*
Education should be among any country's top three priorities.
Electoral College in USA Elections needs to be torn down. It's not 1787 anymore.
Environmentalism is a good idea - since we all eat, drink, and breathe, it would be smart of us to watch what we dump.

Religion: I'm converting to Catholicism, but I'm open to serious discussion.
Social Security is broken, but can be fixed. Extend the FICA tax to everyone including the rich.
The UN is still useful, regardless of what John Bolton says.
Veganism & Vegetarianism isn't something I could see myself doing, but more power to those who do it.
War in Iraq: Wrong from the start.
War on Terror: See above.

Professional Goal: Sound Engineer
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: 1-3, often none.
What is your favorite genre of music: Everything, currently a lot of electronica etc.
Other information: I'm amazing.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: If it threatens the mothers life, or if the child will be living a very substandard life because of health problems or disabilities. If it will threaten the mother's life, the decision is down to the mother, otherwise it must be mutual between both parents.
Arms Trade: People have to make a living, sometimes people have no choice. There will always be those who take advantage of those who don't have a choice. Who am I to say what's right and what's wrong?
Death Penalty: Yes.
Drugs: Should be legalised, and regulated. Taxes from said drugs should fund rehabilitation centres and similiar institutions.
Economic System: Make money where you can. Get as much money off the books as you can.
Education: Is important, needs a serious overhaul though.
Environmentalism: Possibly one of the most important issues of our time. it get's overlooked.
Euthanasia: If there is any chance that the person could live a reasonable life in the future, then no. However, similiar to organ donation cards, people should have cards that say they are willing to be euthanised if they are in the situation, so there is no doubt.
Evolution or Creation?: See "General Religious Affiliation (if any)" above.
Gay Marriage: People have a right to choose. People have a right to have their choices respected and officially recognised.

General Political Affiliation [if any]: Left of center, but really, who cares?
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Animist.
Where Did You Find NationStates?: On the internet.
Have you read any of Max Barrys books: No.
Professional Goal: To go to work in pajamas.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Watch = about 1 hour/day; listen to while I do other things in another room = up to 4 hours/day (I'm a news junkie).
What is your favorite genre of music: No one favorite.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Pro-choice. It's the woman's body, the woman's life, and the woman's risk, therefore, it is the woman's decision to make.
Affirmative Action: Still a necessary evil. Every time I think we might be able to dump it, some idiot dean or CEO proves me wrong.
Arms Trade: A filthy business. If it must be done, it should only be between governments, with independent outside observer/auditors. No WMD's ever.
Death Penalty: I'm against it because people are too vindictive. It's about revenge, not justice, and that's bad for society.
Drugs: None for me, thanks, but pot should be legal and controlled like alcohol.
Economic System: Oh, hey, I don't know. I like money. I also like fairness. I think they can go together. Government should act as a referee enforcing clearly defined regulations to prevent public harm – anti-trust/monopoly, anti-pollution, anti-discrimination, truth-in-lending/advertising, etc. – with harsh penalties for violators. With those rules in place, let the games begin.
Education: An educated electorate is vital to a free society. I want higher national standards and communities left to find their own ways to achieve them.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Dump it. We don't need to make compromises with slave states anymore.
Environmentalism: One of the three most important issues in the world. It's about survival. Immediate issues include climate change, overpopulation, bad water management, and fossil fuel use.
Euthanasia: Legalize it, but with clear protections for the rights of patients and elders.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution, please. IMO, creationism/intelligent design is nothing but a political ploy to insert a reactionary agenda into education. Science and religion are not incompatible, but they are not the same, either. They each get
their own courses.
FCC: Dump it. It's obsolete and, having nothing useful to do, it is becoming a problem.
Gay Marriage: The primary civil rights issue of the current time in the US. I absolutely support it.
Gun Control: I've never touched a gun and hope never to do so, but I see the sense of the right to own guns. But I favor regulation: waiting periods, background checks, licenses renewable with tests (no skeet shooters with cataracts, please), safety training, and registration of non-hunting weapons. I also want manufacturers responsible for trigger locks and tamper-proofing measures on the guns.
Immigration Policies: In the US, FUBAR. I like immigration – I'm no hypocrite – but the US situation is corrupted by infusions of corporate special interests and old-fashioned racism.
Income Tax: A necessary evil.
Israel/Palestine: They're both wrong, and I have no idea how to resolve that situation.
Philosophy: A particularly annoying NS General topic.
Political Party Affiliation: None. I detest political parties.
President Bush/American Policies: Hopefully, those are not the same thing anymore. Bush was a national and international disaster. If we get serious about it, American policies can start to try to fix that now.
Prostitution: Should be legalized, licensed, and regulated for public health and safety (and highly readable consumer reports).
Religion: Politically: Separation of church and state now. Separation of church and state forever. Personally: I think god(s) wants us to quit sticking our noses into other people's private affairs. Also, I'm an animist.
Social Security: It was nice when it was voluntary. Now, I resent it bitterly.
The UN: Could be an important force for the future if they ever get their act together. I'm rooting for them. Yay, international court!
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I don't care.
War in Iraq: Violation of national and international law, and finally, people seem willing to admit it.
War on Terror: A fantastical creature that exists only in the dreams of spin doctors.

Immigration Policies: People who go to a huge effort to get here probably deserve to be here more than an awful lot of the people who are fortunate enough to have been born here.

What is your favorite genre of music: Just about anything really. I've got a highly eclectic mix on my iPod including opera, classical, j-pop/rock, rock, and bagpipes.
Other information:
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Woman's choice only, but it would be a nicer world if there were less of them, it would be an even BETTER one if it wasn't a political football.
Affirmative Action: Still needed.
Arms Trade: Yeah, there's a good idea. Let's sell things to people who might turn around and use them on us later.
Death Penalty: Should only be done rarely, but you don't lock up a mad dog in the hopes that it won't bite again. That said, I do not think it has any value as either a deterant or provides closure.
Drugs: Still sitting on the fence
Economic System: I'd rather have some regulations and be able to breathe the air and drink the water.
Education: I's a teacher. What do YOU think?
Electoral College in USA Elections: In favor as it means presidental politics tends to actually sit in the middle and pay attention to states like Nevada instead od just bypassing to California.
Environmentalism: YES!
Euthanasia: Should be up to that person.
Evolution or Creation?: I do not believe in evolution. I also don't believe in gravity. I accept them based on the evidence.
FCC: Kinda needed, kinda not.
Gay Marriage: Some 60 years ago I would not have been allowed to marry the woman I love due to being a different race from her. Whom am I then to deny two concenting adults the right to be able to get married?
Gun Control: Some. As in I think it's perfectly reasonable to restrict some of the kinds of guns people can own. I'm also in favor of a licencing system where a gun owner must take a safety course WITH range time to recieve their licence which would be used to buy guns and ammo. After that, no other registration is needed.
Immigration Policies: Being a immigrant myself, I'm all for allowing mostly unrestricted movement. We need a massive overhaul of the system though.
Income Tax: I rather LIKE having good roads and bridges, not to mention police, fire, military, and other programs thank you.
Israel/Palestine: Can we just evac the people and turn the area into a glass crater?
Philosophy: The Oscar Mayer theory, life is what you make of it.
Political Party Affiliation: Still non-partisan.
President Obama/American Policies: President Obama seems to be a mixed bag, but I expected nothing more or less. As for American policies, it too is a mixed bag, but that too is to be expected.
Prostitution: Being from Nevada, legalize it, but then keep a close eye on it for health and exploitation.
Religion: You should have freedom of religion and freedom from religion. The state should never interefear, nor vice versa.
Social Security: Need to fix it sooner or later, but needed.
The UN: It's doing what it is supposed to be doing. I just wish it wasn't so picky about its logo.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Whatever floats your boat I guess. I'll take my steak rare though.
War in Iraq: :palm: just :palm:
War on Terror: Ditto.

Real Name: Justin J. Crann
Age: 21

General Political Affiliation [if any]: Progressive Canadian Party
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Deism
Where Did You Find NationStates?: Just looking for a new game.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Not as of yet.
Professional Goal: To win a or several Pulitzer Prize(s).
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Not many (Less than two.)
What is your favorite genre of music: Soundtracks.
Other information: Freelance reporter living in the Greater Toronto Area; studying journalism in college.
Political Beliefs: Canadian Red Tory
Abortion: The prerogative of the individual carrying the child. Personally, I would prefer adoption...
Affirmative Action: Complete and utter rubbish. Divisions are based on socioeconomic status, not race.
Arms Trade: An unfortunate reality.
Death Penalty: In some cases, acceptable.
Drugs: The 'War on Drugs' mentality has failed. People have been doing drugs for millennia and will likely continue to do so.
Economic System: Semi-free market.
Education: A top priority. Children are the future and should be well-educated to address that future appropriately.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Fie!
Environmentalism: Has, sadly, degenerated into something of a fad as late. Oh well, at least it's a semi-helpful fad.
Euthanasia: Acceptable under certain conditions.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolutionary Creationism.
FCC: Censorship is important in some cases, but for the most part freedom of speech should not be impeded.
Gay Marriage: If two guys or two girls want to get married, let them. It doesn't affect my quality of life.
Gun Control: Guns should be licensed.
Immigration Policies: Lax enough to allow educated, intelligent and responsible individuals through.
Income Tax: Also rubbish. Fixed sales taxes, such as the GST in Canada, are indiscriminate and therefore preferable.
Israel/Palestine: These two groups have been at war for so long that they've probably forgotten why. It's sad, really.
Philosophy: Enlightenment-era.
Political Party Affiliation: Progressive Canadian Party
President Obama/American Policies: Obama was what the United States needed at the time. It's just a shame that media outlets painted him as some sort of new-age Messiah or Saviour. He is, after all, only human.
Prostitution: There should be a red light district, maintained by a government branch, with regular physical inspections and supported by a fair tax levvied on those who 'indulge'. The sex trade has and always will exist; governments best make it safe and possibly turn a buck on it.
Religion: Which faith one prescribes to is entirely that individual's own choice. They should not be persecuted for that choice.
Social Security: In limited doses, it is okay; people capable of working should not suck off the government teet unless they cannot find a job (and if they can't, they probably aren't trying hard enough.)
The UN: A failed institution. I would direct anybody who thinks otherwise towards their handling of Rwanda, Sudan, and any number of other such crises. Unfortunately, it's all we have.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: To quote Denis Leary, "Eggplant tastes like eggplant, but meat tastes like murder. And murder tastes pretty God damned good, doesn't it?!?"
War in Iraq: Iraq was helmed by a vicious dictator responsible for an attempted genocide against an ethnic minority. People tend to overlook this when they scream that what Bush and his people did was unjust. That said, the war has dragged on far longer than it probably should have, and that's more due to lack of feet on the ground and focus on a single mission than anything.
War on Terror: An imperative. Terrorism is the greatest threat in the new world order, and it has to be addressed and dealt with. Period.

Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Don't like it, but should stay legal
Affirmative Action: Good, usually
Arms Trade: Bad, usually
Death Penalty: Bad, always
Drugs: Same as abortion
Economic System: Something between the U.S. and Sweden
Education: Public education is good, and should receive more attention
Electoral College in USA Elections: Obsolete
Environmentalism: Good
Euthanasia: Bad
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution
FCC: Good, but recently has been a little fascist
Gay Marriage: Should be legal
Gun Control: Very good
Immigration Policies: The U.S. should let more people in legally or it should execute existing laws. It can't have it both ways.
Income Tax: A progressive income tax is good.
Israel/Palestine: I don't think Israel's founding was a hot idea, but now that it exists a two-state solution should be found.
Philosophy: I kind of like the idea of experiential philosophy, the idea that our thoughts come from our reactions to external senses. According to the very scientific SelectSmart quiz, I am ethically close to Aquinas, metaphysically close to Locke.
Political Party Affiliation: Democratic Party
President Bush/American Policies: Bad/good
Prostitution: Not good, don't have enough statistics to know if legalizing it would be better or not
Religion: There should be no state religion.
Social Security: Good, and if it means taxes have to go up, so be it.
The UN: Isn't great at enforcing its resolutions, but is good at alleviating poverty, curing disease, collecting statistics, etc.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Thinking about vegetarianism, but wouldn't become vegan.
War in Iraq: An experiment in bad ideas coupled with bad execution of those ideas.
War on Terror: Terror is bad, but the war on it sounds suspiciously like an excuse for the U.S. to enter another Cold War (with all of the suspension of civil liberties and massive defense spending that goes with it).

Where Did You Find NationStates?: Read about it on-line
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: no
Professional Goal: to live off a royalty stream from commercialization of inventions
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: 4-5
What is your favorite genre of music: rock
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Only justified to save the physical life of the mother. However, acceptable (reluctantly) to look the other way in cases of rape or incest. Roe v. Wade was, and remains, a monstrosity completely devoid of Constitutional support.
Affirmative Action: Legalized discrimination. Assistance to those who are economically disadvantaged is fine; preferences given to individuals merely by virtue of their belonging to a politically favored group is unacceptable.
Arms Trade: Arms sales to allies are perfectly legitimate and should be encouraged.
Death Penalty: Strongly in favor. Should not be limited only to first-degree murder. Should be extended to additional crimes including treason, espionage, commission of terrorist acts, and repeated child rape.
Drugs: On the fence. Government shouldn’t regulate what individuals choose to consume, recreationally or otherwise. However, drug trafficking also leads to serious societal, not to mention international, problems.
Economic System: Free-enterprise capitalism, subject to reasonable regulation. Most current regulation is highly un-reasonable.
Education: Pre-university education should be privatized.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Strongly in favor.
Environmentalism: In favor as long as not taken to extremes. Responsible conservation: good. Alleging adverse effects on polar bears in order to de-industrialize the U.S.: not just bad, idiotic.
Euthanasia: Unacceptable.
Evolution or Creation?: The observed facts provide support for evolution.
FCC: Probably outdated.
Gay Marriage: Abso-goddam-lutely not. No marriage, no civil unions, no adoptions, no recognition of any kind for sexually deviant lifestyle choices. Not only that, Lawrence v. Texas should be reversed and anti-sodomy laws should be re-instated.
Gun Control: Concealed weapon permits should be readily available to the law-abiding, including to responsible students and teachers on college campuses. However, the line should be drawn at allowing individuals to own heavy weapons like mortars, rocket launchers and machine guns.
Immigration Policies: Illegal aliens should be actively pursued and deported. No benefits of any kind for illegal aliens, including subsidized college tuition and health care. No automatic citizenship for children of illegal aliens. The borders should be secured by any means expedient. Businesses should be held responsible for hiring illegal aliens. Business owners, corporate executives, etc. should be held personally responsible for ensuring that only citizens and legal aliens are hired. If they are found to have knowingly or negligently hired illegal aliens, they should be personally fined and/or imprisoned.
Income Tax: Flat tax across the board. Everybody pays something. No exemptions, no deductions.
Israel/Palestine: Israel keeps Jerusalem; other border adjustments to be negotiated. Israel’s security to be guaranteed. No “right of return” for so-called Palestinian “refugees.” The so-called Palestinians must renounce violence, recognize Israel and prevent their territory from being used as a base for attacks against Israel. The “Islamic world” must be forced to acknowledge that they don’t own territory eternally if they once happen to overrun it.
Philosophy: Can’t really summarize it briefly. A good start would be to refer to traditional American values as shown on the currency–“Liberty”, “E Pluribus Unum” and “In God We Trust.”
Political Party Affiliation: Republican, for want of a viable conservative alternative.
President Bush/American Policies: Far better than the ‘00 and ‘04 alternatives. Far, far better than his successor’s policies. And now that it’s 2009, it’s time to stop focusing on President Bush and start focusing on the Dark Lord’s socialist idiocies at home and anti-American, incompetent weakness abroad.
Prostitution: Should be legalized, taxed and regulated to ensure against abuse of women and children, control by criminal enterprises and detrimental impact on public health. Should also be kept discrete.
Religion: Favor Catholicism, but with reforms including purging child-molesters and other sexual deviants from the clergy, allowing married and women priests; friendly to most other Christian denominations, except theocratic-oriented sects, polygamist wackos and extremists such as Westboro Baptist Church; think well of Judaism, also Buddhism; regard Islam as a hostile, anti-Western ideology.
Social Security: A politically-motivated Ponzi scheme created primarily to buy votes. All workers should be given the option to participate in private policies instead.
The UN: Faulty idea from the start. The US should leave the UN and form a separate organization limited to democratic, Western-oriented nations.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Irredeemably silly. Veggies can go out in a field somewhere and graze. I’m glad humans are at the top of the food chain. Give me a nice rare steak.
War in Iraq: We have achieved victory, unless and until the Dark Lord decides to run away with his tail between his legs and the U.S. repeats Vietnam and abandons yet another ally.
War on Terror: Call it what it is: the war against Islamo-Nazism. Favor whatever means are necessary to defeat the enemy, especially enhanced interrogation techniques. Islamo-Nazi terrorists should be considered hostis humani generis and outside the protection of any law. And the U.S. needs a President who understands this instead of a weakling whose foolishness will only lead to another 9/11.

Professional Goal: Broadcaster or politician, o'course
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: 1-2
What is your favorite genre of music: I like almost anything.
Other information: Pacitalia rawx you all!
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: I support a woman's right to choose, but I'm neutral on the act itself.
Affirmative Action: Oppose - outdated. Our societies are open enough now that minorities don't need affirmative action to have equal opportunity in the workplace or for housing, bank accounts and other necessities.
Arms Trade: No comment.
Death Penalty: Use it on the serial murderers who don't wish to die, and refrain from using it on those who are the opposite.
Drugs: I don't care about marijuana (being Canadian *wink*), but I don't approve of meth, cocaine or ecstasy use. Or any other hard drugs.
Economic System: Laissez-faire capitalist with a flat income tax rate.
Education: Everyone should be post-secondary educated.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Weirdest political system ever. No wonder your elections take four years. *grin*
Environmentalism: Support it, as long as it's not the radical form. What we do to the environment, we end up doing to ourselves, but I don't approve of those who cause harm to others or damage to property to support their ideas.
Euthanasia: If the person/animal is very sick and it is a wish for them/their owner to go with dignity, then I certainly approve.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution. I'm a Christian, but evangelist theory is just ridiculous.
FCC: Federal Communications Commission, right? No comment, since I'm not regulated by their actions.
Gay Marriage: Fully support. It's a human rights thing.
Gun Control: Fully support. Keep guns out of the hands of the crazies and Republicans as much as possible *wink*
Immigration Policies: Let's keep our doors open, but of course, keep our priorities for job openings and seats at schools set towards our own citizens.
Income Tax: Flat, and low. Say the high teens as a percentage.
Israel/Palestine: I support Palestine. Although I don't like the way they've gone about trying to get their independence back in a general sense, they were there first and now they seem to be geared more towards finding a peaceful solution, so I admire that. Israel's just a schoolyard bully.
Philosophy: Focus on where you're headed, but remember where you came from? Without a struggle, there can be no progress?
Political Party Affiliation: Liberal/Conservative (so right-of-centre on the regular spectrum, not the ol' American one *grin*)
President Bush/American Policies: I admire Bush as a man. I don't like his or his government's policies on the whole. Though every president has their good policies. I just like him as a person.
Prostitution: Better than having no money at all, I guess. I'm neutral.
Religion: More power to everyone, but let's keep religion and government fully separated.
Social Security: What kind of society would we be without it? I approve.
The UN: Get your act together and I might support your existence.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: The vegan thing I don't understand, otherwise, it's your body and your right to do what you want.
War in Iraq: Against. Very much so.
War on Terror: Against. They're fighting for what they believe in too, as horrible as it may have been. At least Afghanistan's democratic now.

Professional Goal: To perform my music all over the country.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Eh, maybe 5.
What is your favorite genre of music: All kinds. I cannot choose.
Other information: Uh.. I'm gay? Iunno.
Political Beliefs
Abortion: Should be decided on both the mother, and the father. If the father isn't around then solely the mother's decision. There should be laws created to prevent a selfish mother from aborting a baby that the father desires to take care of, however, it has to proven that he is stable to take care of it.
Affirmative Action: It has some potentially good policies, but it's too haywire for me to endorse.
Arms Trade: Only with nations we trust.
Death Penalty: Abolish it. There are better ways to handle criminals.
Drugs: Legalize all of them, but only sell marijuana.
Economic System: This changes, but I've taken a more social outlook, but I tend to look at all sides of the issues.
Education: Needs to be reformed, badly. There's too much corruption, and we focus on issues that don't matter in the long run. We should be teaching children how to pay taxes, how to job search, etc etc along with subjects we really need.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Get rid of it. It had a purpose, and now that's gone.
Environmentalism: We should try to fix the causes that we have created, but we should also let nature take it's course.
Euthanasia: Legalize it.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: Deep, deep, deep reform. I'm on the verge of saying 'no censorship at all', but citizens wouldn't be happy with that -- so just minimal censorship.
Gay Marriage: Legalize it.
Gun Control: Shouldn't be too strict. There are cases where the stricter the gun control is the more violence there is, so something needs to come midway.
Immigration Policies: We should develop a system that grants immigrants the right to become citzens immediately. We share this Earth, and we should be able to live where we choose. However, we shouldn't have open immigration.. there needs to be a system.
Income Tax: Ehh, I'm not too sure how I feel about income tax.
Israel/Palestine: Let them settle their own problems.
Philosophy: Philosophy should be encouraged in schools more than it is. It's very helpful, and insightful.
Political Party Affiliation: Libertarianism.
President Obama/American Policies: I used to love Obama, but now I'm iffy. He's alright, but he needs to stop talking, and start doing.
Prostitution: Legalize it, and turn it into a business. We pay people to have sex on camera, and call it porn. The porn industry is very safe, and rarely has any health issues. Just treat prostitution with the same regulations, maybe a little more strict..not sure yet.
Religion: Never outlaw it, but it shouldn't be treated as a reliable source of information.
Social Security: Reform, or get rid of it.
The UN: Reform it, or get rid of it.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: If people want to eat meat, or not, it's their choice.
War in Iraq: Needs to end, honestly.
War on Terror: What war on terror? This is a war on politics.

What is your favorite genre of music: Rock, metal, jazz, blues, drum n bass, a fair bit of stuff...
Other Information: i'm addicted to these forums. i love glitziness :fluffle: founding member of the UDCP. once 'e-married' to Tink
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: OK before 19 weeks, pro-life after
Affirmative Action: N/A
Arms Trade: Should be shut down. By their very nature these weapons are designed to kill people - a trade and industry that should be prohibited. Who is some military general or politician to decide the fates of the lives of men?
Death Penalty: dead against (hahaha). nobody has the authority to decide who should live and who should die
Drugs: For legalisation and regulation of cannabis, to be sold in licensed coffeeshops/hash bars a la the Netherlands. For decriminalisation of possession of other drugs (should be confiscated/fined but not a criminal offence), but supply should remain firmly illegal with greater penalties - including supply of marijuana (not sold with a license)
Economic Model: Mix of Liberal/Socialist in the short term but ultimately reformist communist
Economic policies: Pro regulation of business to protect workers and consumers. For progressive tax systems. Anti-consumerism (causes a downward spiral of human happiness). You shouldn't put (short term) profit before happiness, nor the environment. Becoming quite anti-capitalist in general; want ultimatley for the abolition of money
Education: of primary importance. its not economic growth that makes our lives better, necessarily, but education. increasing the intelligence and education of a nation should be any government's main aim.
education sould be free for all people, and of higher quality than it is today. there is a definate role for new information technology in the education process, rather than relying only on old tried and tested methods. education should be a 'national institution for the formation of Character' (Robert Owen) - being a reformist communist i believe that altruism can be taught to people through education; aspects of our current nature can be removed, such as greed, overcompetativeness, desire for unrequited material aquisition (the fuel for consumerism) and other negative qualities that cause the world great problems. the issue that this could be seen as 'brainwashing' is one i recognise, but its not like we don't do this already through the current education system (encouraging competativeness, greed, etc), and i believe (for once) the end justifies the means.
phew....
Electoral College in USA Elections: Electoral colleges are a stupid idea
Environmentalism: Should do more to protect the environment, we can only screw it up once
Euthanasia: For with Living Wills
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution. Stupid question.
FCC: N/A
Gay Marriage: For... whatever floats your boat...
Gun Control: Ban em
Immigration Policies: We're all from the same planet, we're all the same no matter what "country" you come from... its pot luck as to where you are born and who your parents are, we shouldn't make such a big deal of these supposed arbitary differences. Nationalism is the devil!
Income Tax: should be more progressive. agree with Rawls' work on the Veil of Ignorance - the skills, parents, disabilities, and talents we are born with, and the environment and country we are born into are not decided by us but by complete chance. the only fair or just system is one which counteracts these random differences and makes sure nobody can benefit at the expense of another just because of a chance talent (within reason, a meritocracy is still desirable); convesley nobody looses out because of their chance disabilites. there should thus be redistribution from the wealthy to the poor through progressive tax systems.
ultimatley i believe in communism; "from each according to his ability to each according to his need"
Israel/Palestine: If the US would stop blindly supporting Israel, putting the peace process in jeopardy, maybe there could be peace. Religious fundamentalism and fanaticism, religious hatred, is something i just don't understand
Philosophy: Subscriber to Kantian Ethics as much as i can in daily life; like the work of Rousseau (not Hume hahaha), and am Regressionist and trying to be an Altruist
Political Party Affiliation: Socialist/Communist, general left winger
President Bush/American Policies: Bring back Clinton!
Prostitution: Legal within certain zones, strict regulation & policing, free facilities should be available for prostitutes such as medical help & advice, safehouses, general advice. remove the criminal element
Religion: None/Athiest
Social Security: I'm a socialist, you figure it out
The UN: For. It may have its problems but it beats the hell out of unilateralism
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Meat tastes too good to not eat but should be produced in humanitarian ways... no factory farming (supporter of local foods, farm direct-to-consumer retail, & small-scale farming in general)
War in Iraq: Opposed.
War on Terror: Bah..

Professional Goal: Some high-up job in Civil Rights Law somewhere.
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: None to an hour. Computer > TV, imo.
What is your favorite genre of music: 20th Century Classical.
Other information: I can touch type? I have no idea what to put here, honestly.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: I believe that abortion in the early stages of pregnancy should be legal. In later stages, only if it's life threatening if the baby is born.
Affirmative Action: No.
Arms Trade: Yes, but only to an extent. Trading nukes is insanely stupid.
Death Penalty: Absolutely not.
Drugs: Possession and sale of soft drugs, such as marijuana, should be legalised and treated like tobacco. Much like in Portugal.
Economic System: Capitalist, as deregulated as possible, with most regulation being set by voluntary trade unions and organisations.
Education: Should be privatised to allow for a better education.
Electoral College in USA Elections: In my opinion, a complete piece of crap. Back to the drawing board.
Environmentalism: I think environmentalism has been pushed to far. I have no problem with the whole "Let's not screw up our lives by dumping toxic waste everywhere" thing, but I believe some movements nowadays have just gone too far.
Euthanasia: Should be legal for those who need it [cancer victims, etc.]
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: Not being American, I don't know too much about it, but it looks like just another piece of useless regulation.
Gay Marriage: All for it.
Gun Control: To an extent; there's no need to be paranoid about it.
Immigration Policies: Largely open, people with criminal records, etc. should not be allowed into the country.
Income Tax: Unnecessary.
Israel/Palestine: The whole "Jew vs. Muslim" thing is insanely stupid. I can't believe people are killing each other over a difference in belief. It's like me shooting my next door neighbour for liking apples more than pears.
Philosophy: A good thing to occupy yourself with on public transport, but there are better things to do.
Political Party Affiliation: Libertarian.
President Obama/American Policies: I'm not really for his policies, but he's doing a decent job, much better than Bush.
Prostitution: Legalise and get a foothold on real crime.
Religion: I don't like religion myself, but I don't see any problem with practicing it. As long as it doesn't incite violence, etc.
Social Security: Private charity is much better.
The UN: Decent idea, but it needs more power to be able to actually do anything.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Bit silly, considering in the wild animals eat other animals, but whatever.
War in Iraq: Probably be better for Iraq in the VERY long run, but the Bush administration bungled it. It could have been done in a better fashion.
War on Terror: Curbing civil freedoms in the name of a false devil, caused by militaristic actions on behalf of the US in the first place.

Economic System: Regulated capitalism

Professional Goal: Want to be a games designer. Or Comic Book writer/artist. Whichever
How many hours a day do you watch TV?: Maybe two. Three on a lazy day.
What is your favorite genre of music: It goes by a ridiculous number of names. Harsh EBM/Electro-Indutrial/Terror EBM/Dark Electro
Other information: Somniphobic (fear of sleep), paranoid and a slight fear of being touched (that's a recently developed fear of mine).
Political Beliefs: Anarchist
Abortion: Should be the mother's right to choose, but she needs a damn good reason. Like if it's hazardous to her health. Cos she can't support it is not a good reason.
Affirmative Action: Necessary so long as racism still exists. So forever basically.
Arms Trade: Nobody needs guns. Ever. Except the army.
Death Penalty: Againstin general, but I can make exceptions for certain truly evil people.
Drugs: Should be legal. Tobacco and Alcohol are more dangerous than Marijuana or LSD, yet perfectly legal.
Economic System: Everyone should have access to everything. Don't really understand "economics" so I'll leave it there.
Education: Should be available to everyone on every level.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Stupid, does not work and rarely represents the people's opinion.
Environmentalism: Perhaps over-the-top, but still needed. We die, the Earth survives. The Earth dies, we die. But in all reality, the Earth is not in danger. It's survived worse things than Humanity. We're the ones who are screwed.
Euthanasia: Should be allowed, provided their is a written and signed consent in the presence of an independent witness.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: Too politically correct and too much of a nanny-organisation.
Gay Marriage: Should be allowed, no question.
Gun Control: Needed badly in some countries.
Immigration Policies: This is a world that belongs to all humanity. Anyone should be allowed anywhere, so long as they aren't posing a threat to others.
Income Tax: Unnecessarily high. I want to choose where my money goes, and I don't want it going to the army.
Israel/Palestine: A perfect example of religion gone wrong. Someone needs to slap both sides upside the head and show them how stupid they're being.
Philosophy: Nihilism
Political Party Affiliation: None.
President Obama/American Policies: I like his ideas, but he needs to be given more time to act on them.
Prostitution: Should be government controlled. If people want to sell themselves that's their choice. But by making it illegal we're making sure that the wrong kind of people get involved. I think it's funny that if you ask someone for sex, it's okay. If you pay them, it's illegal. But if you pay them and film it for profit, it's perfectly fine.
Religion: A waste of human intellect and resources. All it does is cause trouble.
Social Security: Needed. Everyone has a right to a decent standard of living.
The UN: The most useless organisation on the planet. It's Peacekeepers are useless when really needed, and it does nothing to stop war. Which is what it's supposed to do.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Definitely not for me. Carnivore through and through. But if people want to, hey, it's their choice.
War in Iraq: A waste of time, money and human blood. Great we got rid of Sadaam. Yeah, those people are so much better off now aren't they?
War on Terror: A lie which leaders use to keep a tighter grip on their subjects. How can you have a war on a noun anyway? Terrorists are not armies or nations. They are embodiments of an idea. And ideas never die.


Rhodmhire

The People's Republic of Rhodmhire
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: I believe I have no right to say what a woman does with her body, but honestly, if you willingly engage in sexual intercourse, knowing you may have a child, you shouldn't deny that child the right to live. If you're capeable of having/raising/giving the baby up for adoption, abortion shouldn't be necessary. If you are uncapeable of raising, having, or giving the baby up for adoption--if you were raped, of if you're at a young age--I think it's acceptable.
Affirmative Action: No real opinion, although I'm not in favor of it.
Arms Trade: Depends on who's trading with who, for what reasons, and the history of each countries' arms involvement, trade, utilization, and so forth. If both countries can be trusted to trade arms with each other, so be it.
Death Penalty: I don't think the justice system is perfect, therefore, the government shouldn't have any say in someone's penalty involving death. However, if someone is killed for breaking into someone's house/private property, or putting other's rights at risk, in my opinion, they loose their right to live from the point they decide to infringe on others' right to life, or their paid for/owned property, until they are arressted.
Drugs: Legalize them, trying to prohibit anything, guns, alcohol, drugs, indefinately fails. The War on Drugs is a huge failure in my opinion, it's one of the issues that keeps me from being a full-on Republican/Democrat.
Economic System: I lean towards capitalism.
Education: Screwed up in America, we need to stop prodding people into going to poorly constructed public schools, that are void of good teachers. We need more choice in where we attend, and we shouldn't need to pay taxes to local public schools unless we attend them.
Electoral College in USA Elections: It needs to be abolished, period.
Environmentalism: Environmentalism in the good sense is great. We need to keep our Earth clean and healthy. "Global Warming" and "Fear-Mongering" environmentalism degrades human value, is based on psuedo-science, and is based on fear, lies, and overexaggeration. It's a scam, a government scam, if anything--buisnesses probably profit off it too. It's going to indefinately destroy our way of life unless we wake up and realize the truth.
Euthanasia: Not my decision, if a person has valid reasoning, let it be used.
Evolution or Creation?: I'm a Theistic Evolutionist, I believe in evolution and the big bang, with a creator behind them. I don't think the universe is so complex, yet can govern itself for billions upon billions of years.
FCC: Needs to calm the hell down.
Gay Marriage: Not an issue to me, once the economy and the very essence of American freedom and existence aren't totally on the verge of seemingly and increasingly inevitable destruction--I'll start caring again. At the moment, I'm not in support nor opposition, I'm tolerable, if gay and lesbian couples want more from me, they can help improve the economy and help me fix government corruption.
Gun Control: No. Either people and criminals have guns, or criminals have guns. You can't trust the authorities with that much power, the power to either get there in time and stop a criminal, or be a little late and wrap up your dead body. Washington said something along the lines of "...they [firearms] are the people's liberty's teeth."
Immigration Policies: Illegal immigration needs to be stopped, but deportation of illegals in the workforce isn't a good idea now.
Income Tax: Almost gives me the sense that the harder I work, the worse off I am. It's like "Increasing taxes to those making over $250,000 a year," it encourages me not to succeed...
Israel/Palestine: Very complicated issue to me, I have no opinion, it's like gay marriage--not on the top of my list at this point.
Philosophy: Good to comprehend and learn to some extent, just don't go for Philosophy as a main/base obsession or main component in your occupation.
Political Party Affiliation: I think Party Affiliation is causing people to go for political figureheads who are more affiliated with their party, opposed to if what they're saying is true, right, just, plausible, etc. As for me, I'm a modest Republican, leaning towards Libertarianism. I'm mostly with the Republican party, although I think they need to re-think a lot of how they pull off what they believe, I'm mostly with them. Issues like The War in Iraq/on Terror, gay marriage, death penalty, and immigration seperate me from calling myself simply a "Republican." The biggest issue that seperates me, however, is The War on Drugs, which I find 100% failed and needs to end ASAP.
President Obama/American Policies: Obama: another Bush, another corrupt politician. American policies: being corrupted by government.
Prostitution: No real opinion, although I'm not very tolerable of it.
Religion: I'm a member of the Catholic Church, I'm a Theistic Evolutionist leaning towards agnostic ideologies. I think modest religious views can be great to society, but I think many religions have been tainted, and people are more concerned on getting followers opposed to practicing the just beliefs of their religion(s).
Social Security: No solid opinion, I'm more towards the state shouldn't have to provide it, and that it needs to be overlooked, but it's not something I focus on, keep up on, or know too much about. Therefore, I don't have a very solid opinion.
The UN: Useless, they don't do crap, they can try all they want, but they're pointless.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: A choice, a choice I'd never make myself, and I don't see why I ever would. I have a healthy diet of balanced, healthy meats, veggies, fruits, and so forth--I think good meat is good for you, it's been good to me for years.
War in Iraq: I was in support of it, but more recently I'm in opposition. I think we needed to take out Hussein and end it, although it wasn't as bad as people thought, we probably shouldn't have stayed as long as we did. I don't think we did great, but we didn't fail. As of now, pull out, we can't keep trying to train these useless Iraqi soldiers, when Iraq crumbles, we won't be there to help--maybe that'll put a thought in people's minds.
War on Terror: We should be involved, but we really, really need to re-think how we handle this situation.

Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Pro-choice
Affirmative Action: No.
Arms Trade: Don't bother.
Death Penalty: No in most cases.
Drugs: Decriminalize.
Economic System: Libertarian-right
Education: In college.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Abolish. Last two elections show obvious flaws. Popular vote, often the electoral votes get incorrectly weighted for certain groups.
Environmentalism: Nuclear power plants + hydrogen fuel cells once they are stabilized. Electric cars are silly, the market appeal is limited to one group - the very environmentally conscious.
Euthanasia: Shouldn't even need legalization. As long as you mentally sound, you can do whatever you want to your body. It's yours to destroy or enrich.
Evolution or Creation?: Pointless debate.
FCC: Abolish, if for no other reason than they seem to be a group of moralistic busybodies. Parent's problem if they can't control what their kids watch. And if you don't like what you see, well, move to a monastery. Catering to an easily offended minority at the expense of a majority is silly and destructive to cultures.
Gay Marriage: No opinion.
Gun Control: In favor. These tools are as much to assert your rights as to protect your family.
Immigration Policies: No opinion.
Income Tax: Flat tax of %5. Stop shrinking the middle/upper-middle class you little bastards.
Israel/Palestine:
Political Party Affiliation: They all are hacks.
President Bush/American Policies:
Prostitution: Decriminalize. That's the first step. Let the moralists whine about it, but it will make prostitutes more open about their occupation to the authorities and they will be in a better position overall when it comes to their welfare.
Religion: None.
Social Security: It's a system that's sliding into the toilet like a huge unwieldy turd. And it's going to make a big splash when it does happen. Best to cut your losses and redesign a new method of SS.
The UN: Silly. What's the point of having several countries on a Security Council with often antagonistic views of each other? Nothing ever gets done when you are busy vetoing each others interests.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: So long as it doesn't get forced on others. Goose liver pâté was banned in Chicago though. I suppose when veal gets banned by these culture-less PETA barbarians then I will find a gun of suitable caliber.
War in Iraq: Not the best move but I don't see any European countries - including my own - staying to fix the mess they left in Africa. That is something to be commended, even though the invasion took place for your usual shit reasons.
War on Terror: Again, not smart.

Death Penalty: Should be only for murder, rape, and treason.
Drugs: Are bad, mm'kay?
Economic System: A Capitalist government should stay out unless to block things like AIG's bonuses.
Education: Everyone deserves the right to an education. However, Native Americans should not be given free educations and seperate scolarships because they are a minority.

Environmentalism: Is good sometimes.
Euthanasia: Everyone has the right to life and death, and their choices should be respected.
Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
FCC: N/A
Gay Marriage: Is immoral and should be banned, or at least renamed.
Gun Control: F*cking sucks.
Immigration Policies: If a person wants to enter my country and work, let them. If they want to come and mooch off the system, push them back out on whatever boat they came on. And if they enter illegally, execute them.
Income Tax: Sucks, but what can you do?
Israel/Palestine: I'm opposed to the country of Israel in the first place (NOT the people. I am not anti-semetic). Israel was created to give the Jewish people a home, and in turn they should recognize that Palestinians have the same right.
Philosophy: A woman upside down will always rack up.
Political Party Affiliation: NDP.
President Obama/American Policies: Obama is the victim of hype. He will not be as good as anyone thought he would be; not even close. He will be an average President.

Evolution or Creation?: Evolution.
Gay Marriage: Against.
Gun Control: For.
Immigration Policies: Almost only European immigration should be allowed.
Income Tax: I'm against it; an income tax lowers the incentive among people to become well-educated and may result in brain drain, which harms the nation's economy in the long run.
Prostitution: I'm against it; prostitution should be discouraged, primarily to prevent the spread of STDs.
Religion: Religion should be free, so long as it doesn't interfere with the national stability to a major degree.
Social Security: I'm against it; natural selection should run its coarse, and tax money shouldn't be wasted on the bottom of society.
