My Positions

STRONGLY SUPPORT

Universal Higher Education

STRONGLY OPPOSE
O+

Stupid "positions" categories in Political Bank

“Moderation is not censorship. Lack of moderation hurts the credibility of this election resource.”

STRONGLY OPPOSE
O+

Education Choice & Vouchers

“"Educational Choice" is just a code phrase for diverting tax money to private interests. That tax money needs to be invested in PUBLIC education.”

STRONGLY OPPOSE
O+

Religious Freedom Act

“RFA grants a preferential status to a specific sub-sect of one religion. It is unconstitutional. It is not "persecution" to forbid you to persecute others. You live in a world of different kinds of people. DEAL WITH IT.”

STRONGLY OPPOSE
O+

Fracking

“This question is worded in a strongly biased manner and needs to be revised. Provide only the facts without trying to influence the answer.”

STRONGLY OPPOSE
O+

Offshore Drilling

NOT APPLICABLE
N/A

2nd Amendment

“The Second Amendment was intended to give the people the ability to overthrow the government if it should become a tyranny. The problem is, we now HAVE a tyranny and the armed public are only killing each other. Pockets of armed hate groups fantasize about race war, and maladjusted kids with no future shoot up their classmates. I support self-defense, but I also support a review of our gun laws.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT
S+

Local Economy

“Current tax laws make self-employment and small-business ownership almost impossible for most people. This needs to be remedied.”

N/A

Capital Punishment

“I'll feel a lot better about capital punishment when I see it used on war profiteers, Wall Street pirates, corrupt politicians and certain current and former Presidents. As it is, the death penalty only seems to apply to the poor, black and friendless.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT
S+

Government Funding Planned Parenthood

“Abortion services through Planned Parenthood are not taxpayer-funded and never were. Planned Parenthood provides vital women's care to those who would otherwise have none. Those who want to defund them are simply anti-woman.”

STRONGLY OPPOSE
O+

Build The Wall

“"The Wall" is a hate project, a hostile act against a peaceful neighbor country.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT
S+

Decriminalization of Marijuana

“We tolerate alcohol, which kills. We tolerate tobacco, which kills. The "War on Drugs" is just a mechanism to funnel black people into the prison system. Legalize marijuana and expunge all convictions against users with no other offenses.”
