Party you align yourself with most: socialist because i believe that capitalist society and all of the competition that comes with it takes people away from what's really important.
How do you feel about abortion: it isn't really my place to impose my beliefs on the issue when there are so many circumstances that call for different actions.
Gay marriages: it's so lame to fight about this. it's about love, and that's it. who the hell cares what gender they are? i think it's enough just to see two people who love eachother. not everyone is into marriage..take what you can get.
Racism: it's a bit of an isolated problem for me. i think people should lighten up. suddenly, everything we say is racist. i don't think people should censor themselves to a point where any VAGUE IMPLICATIONS could equal racism. it's too much.
Our "war on terrorism": how did bush get into office, anyway? he should be thinking about all the homeless people his limo drives past EVERY DAY.
War in general: there's always a way around it.
