    I'm a democrat but I think abortion is wrong. Do you have opinions that conflict with your political affiliation or are you just a brain-washed puppet?

    I think the govenment should take over the health care system in the U.S. but have it run by an independent agency paid by the government.

    It's not my concept, but it is one that I accept as probably true.

    It's reasonable to assume that a population that supports abortion will likely use it more than a population that doesn't. Since Democrats support abortion in greater numbers, it's also reasonable to assume that Democrats abort their unborn children in higher numbers than Republicans.

    When a segment of a population aborts itself at a higher rate than another segment, it won't grow as fast and will eventually be outnumbered, even if it started out as a majority.

    The proof in the pudding is that fact that Democrats are now winning far less elections than Re[ublicans and Red states are growing faster than Blue states.

    I agree that abortion keeps Democrats out of the White House, but your reasoning is borderline insane. Clinton won substantially in 1996, the children born since then aren't even old enough to vote so they couldn't have possible had any effect on recent elections.

    I'm very much a Republican.

    My opposing views for this though, are Gay-Rights and religion in general.

    I say if gays want to be gay with each other, let them. Doesn't bother me.

    And I'm not religious at all, so I hate when the reasoning for some issues are because "God wants it that way" or whatever. Even when I still agree with the resulting issue, I just don't agree with the reasoning.

    I'm a far left liberal, but I believe that it should be illegal to get an abortion once it becomes a fetus. Liberals are supposed to be anti-death penalty, anti-killing, anti-war, and anti-anything inumane.

    I also support torturing terrorists for the purpose of gathering intelligence, and I oppose a complete pull out of Iraq.

    I think it would be better than what Bush is doing, but it's not the best we could do.

    We should contain the Iraq civil war and keep it in Iraq, instead of trying to break it up. And we should protect the oil from getting blown up in their civil war. We station troops on the border and nobody gets in or out. Make it publicly known that we will shoot on site. In that condition the only people who would bother trying to get in or out are people that want to undermine our effort to contain the civil war and prevent Iranian influence. We also station troops to surround the oil fields.

    It would be chaper than what we are doing now, and far less soldiers would die. The only way the Iraqis will learn why it's irresponsible to hate each other is to suffer the consequences of hating each other, and that will be war and death in their streets, and this time they wont be able to blame us. It's the only way they will learn. you can't teach a kid math if you use a calcuator to do all his work for him. The Iraqis need to make their historical mistakes so they can learn from them, and untill we step aside and let it happen, their social development will be on pause or rewind.

    edit.. I think it's illogical to build up this strong government and strong military that will eventually take up an alliance with Iran and try to kill us anyways. it's like handing a machine gun to your worst enemy and hoping he wont shoot you. We were much safer with Saddam Hussein running Iraq.

    to spider-bite- a person will admit to anything under torture, even things that are not true...it just simply doesnt work, and that's why it shouldnt be done, imho

    anyway, I'm an indpendent, but am pretty liberal, but I support he death penalty in certain cases

    Same here. When election time comes around I try to keep informed as to which parties are promising what. Then I vote for the one whose promises sound most plausible to be kept and least likely to cause problems (NO NEW TAXES!!!!).

    there are a lot of different ways to get information, and no one way or technique works for every terrorist in every situation. They have highly trained behavioral profilers to help them figure out the best way to get information, and it's best to leave all of the options on the table. Sometimes torturing is the only way. Other times there are other ways.

    Not to mention the sleep deprivation breaks down mental barriers and they can eventually enter a highly suggestive trance like state.

    1. I'm Canadian
    2. There are enough things taxed now, they don't need to add more taxes to the list. (Goods & Services tax on almost everything you buy, Provincial Sales Tax on things you buy, hidden "gas" tax everytime you fill up your vehicle, income tax paid off your earnings, property taxes for making enough to own your own piece of land, etc....)

    the more we pay now the less we pay later. every year were adding 500 billion to our debt, and when the baby boomers retire that number will increaes dramatically. NOt to mention a big hunk of what we pay every year, doesn't even go to pay for government services. It pays off this years interest. The more we pay now, the less we pay later.

    If we do not start managing our money, and pay a responsible amount of taxes and lower spending within a few decades we will become a third world country. And because of the web of ecnomic relations throughout the globe, the rest of the world will fall into poverty as well.

    I'm libertarian, or, at least, have very libertarian beliefs, yet just can't be in favor of drug legalization.
