Honestly, I haven't researched your posts enough to know.
I'm in favor of social safety nets, but I agree that they need to be monitored very carefully to help prevent abuse. Are we doing a good job of that currently? I don't think so. Do I think we should do away with them altogether? Absolutely not.
I have no problem with Federal marriage laws, other than they currently discriminate based solely on the sex of the two parties attempting to enter into contract. The last I checked, sex was a protected class. Would I rather see legal marriage abolished than keep it status quo? Perhaps - although that would necessarily trigger a bunch more legislation regarding property/medical/child responsibility/etc, which means bigger government (which I'm not in favor of).
I think marijuana should be legalized.
I see no reason to enact any new "gun control" legislation.
I think abortion should be the choice of the mother/parents.
I have no problems with raising taxes to resolve our nation's debt, but feel spending needs to be cut to a greater degree than the taxation rate raises.
Blah, blah, blah. You get the idea, I hope.
This is all discussion for the political forum, however.
