List of opinions

I have lots of opinions and enjoy lists:

I am a moderately liberal Democrat. I would have voted for Abe Lincoln or Teddy Roosevelt, but not any of the recent crop of Republicans!

I believe in freedom and civil liberties. The ACLU approach to law. I am a First Amendment absolutist!

I believe in a woman's right to control her body and abort. I prefer contraception or adoption to abortion, but that is her choice.

I would simplify the tax code; eliminate all deductions and lower the tax rate to cover everything and everyone!

I would have a Federal inheritance tax with no tax on the first two million in assets, indexed for inflation, and then tax at 15%.

I would declare victory in Iraq and bring home all the US troops in three to six months.

In California I would balance the budget by cutting all expenses 5% across the board and raising all taxes and fees 5%! Problem solved.

I think the FEMA planning in Katrina hurricane was disgraceful! I would fill in New Orleans with enough dirt to make it ten feet above sea level!

I would get a civil defense system with former military bases used for evacuation with food, water, beds and security on standby! I would order evacuation and put people on buses to bases.

I would include sex education at every grade and encourage people to understand this human and animal part of human nature. Free condoms for all!

I would strictly separate church and state. Study religion as a area of human history and faith but not advocate any one religion. Study and respect all religions and holidays.

I encourage free trade, human travel and tourism.

Encourage people to invest for their retirement but not mess with Social Security by private accounts. Solve the Social Security funding problem by lifting the cap on taxing wages for Social Security and eliminating social security payments for those with more than $100,000 in income from other sources after age 65! Social security is welfare for the old not a true pension system. Not keep increasing benefits at an unrealistic rate.

Provide medicare benefits for everyone! Fund this by a national sales tax on the internet purchases whether of goods or services, with a low rate of say 5%.

I would set up racetracks and drag srips outside all major metro areas so people can have fun racing and not do it on the streets! Get instruction and have the safety improved with ambulances on standby.

I would legalize prostitution, marijuana, some mild uppers and downers, with supervision and counseling available. People are doing it anyway and we should tax it to pay for education, healthcare, addiction treatment and to get it into the mainstream.

Same with gambling. The Indian casinos and Las Vegas show it is already here. Lets tax it and use the money for public services.

I would avoid more armed interventions like Iraq.

If you were running for office I would vote for you in a heartbeat. Unfortunatly I don't think you would do well in the red states.

Wait, you consider yourself a moderate liberal? Not that I don't agree with every word, that is. You do realize you're one of us the right wing would like to throw into re-education camps, right? If you think I'm joking, go read Free Republic sometime.

They have to catch me before they could throw me in a camp! I say fuck the right wingers! I would not run for office as I am too blunt and honest to put up with all the crap!
