Party you align yourself with most: Democrat I suppose.
How do you feel about abortion: Completely for it. No one should tell you what you can and can't do with your own body. And then you look at the big pro-life groups, which are all religious. I'm sorry, but if the best argument you got is "don't do it because the babies, who can't move, think, or speak, are going to be sent to a place that has not been proven to exist to suffer for eternity" then you've got to re-examine yourself.
Gay marriages: For it. Again, it has to do with civil rights. Why is the president against it? Because it gives him and his Texas buddies the willies whenever they think about it? Things like this make me lose faith in the human race.
Rascism: Why does it still exist? I thought we were past this. Anyway, in my view, I don't see how some people can be so anti-somebody. The KKK for instance, one of the main reasons they exist is because people have one-track minds and can't see things any other way. It's just hard for me to believe stuff like that since the human race has come so far, and yet things like racism still exist.
Our "war on terrorism": Greatly inflated. It's used as a tool for the government to do what they want. Like scare tactics.
War in general: Usually against it. Most of the time, there are alternate routes, but there are cases, such as World War II, where there is no other option. The current war, however, is unneccessary.

3 Pictures of yourself:

Yeah, I always look like that.
