The "Controversial" Survey
Would you do meth if it was legal?
I don't know. Depends on how dangerous and addictive it is. Probably not.
Abortion: for or against it?
I'm in favor of it being legal until it's practical to handle it as a matter of eviction and raise the orphaned child as a mind-controlled drone in the service of the state.
Do you think the world would fail with a female president?
It's had several, just not here. And really, once women get positions of power they stop being 'woman' and start being 'president' even to people who'd otherwise be sexist. Stereotypes in general don't apply to specific people, only to people in general.
Do you believe in the death penalty?
Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?
Yeah. I'm sick of avoiding people because I'm worried I'll get caught up in their illegal activity. Since the stuff's mostly harmless, the best solution is to legalize it.
Are you for or against premarital sex?
For. I think sex in general needs to be decriminalized. Or whatever you call it.
Do you believe in God?
I'm willing to believe in god for the sake of argument. I'm also willing to disbelieve in god for the sake of argument. I'm even -- and this is a *huge* suspension of disbelief -- willing to believe in a *specific* god for the sake of argument.
Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
I think marriage should be rewritten to allow for more flexible unions in general, but also that the policies that make marriage a big deal should be changed so that it isn't. While somehow still protecting the people who want to have kids from getting totally screwed by each other or their employers. Ugh. x.x
Do you think it's wrong that so many Hispanics are illegally moving to the USA?
I think it's wrong that it's illegal for people to move, yes.
A twelve year old girl has a baby, should she keep it?
Well, her parents should.
Should the alcohol age be lowered to eighteen?
I think it should be lowered to sixteen, just like driving and sex. No wait, sex is eighteen here? I don't even remember. >.< The different ages for different sorts of responsibility seem really arbitrary. Hell, make it twelve for all three, I don't care. Age isn't even a good measure -- the driving test is a better idea. I'm not sure how you'd test if someone was responsible enough for sex and alcohol, but I bet it would be really unpleasant. >:)
Should the war in Iraq be called off?
At some point. Preferably at some point where it's not gnawing off a leg to escape a bear trap.
Assisted suicide is illegal: do you agree?
Yeah, it should probably stay illegal, because most suicidal people recover. Terminally ill patients can reasonably be an exception.
Do you believe in spanking your children?
Physical pain is a good way of conditioning people against the things they need to be conditioned against, although social pressure can work just as well. Better, really. Which means that it can also do more *damage* than physical discipline. I don't see any reason to single out spanking.
Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?
I like burning things, and hate symbolism, so I might pay $5 to burn one. I wouldn't pay a million, though -- I don't even *have* a million.
Who do you think would make a better president? McCain or Obama?
Obama. McCain seems really... um... incompetent. And insincere. And worst of all, apathetic.
Don't get me wrong, I love apathy, but it's a terrible quality for a leader.
Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?
