Please don't select Republican for all or Democrat for all! Be honest. Unless you are a hardcore politics geek there are state offices that you do not care about at all. You don't even really know who the person running from your party is. This is your opportunity to do a good deed! 3rd parties have to petition and push to get their candidates on the ballot. In many states a 3rd party must get some percentage of the vote in a state race to maintain ballot access (not have to go through the same petition just to get their candidates on next time around). Please consider voting for third party candidates in state offices that you don't care about!

|When Josh and I were 20 he won a PTQ and was able to go to Pro-Tour Venice. I was helping him plan and saw I could get a round trip ticket for $500 so I said fuck it I'm going. And I did. We switched planes in Detroit and my parents still lived there at the time so they came and got us at the airport during our layover and we went out to dinner with them before going onto Venice. This summer at my cousin's open house I asked my dad if I could copy the files from the memory card in his camera so I could get some pictures of my extended family. I didn't have time to go through them so I just copied everything. Tonight in going through them I found pictures from that layover. So......

This one was not so good. Both versions failed to recognize the existence of minarchists though. I can fake answers and be a libertarian or let it call me an anarchist. *sigh*
|While I have never said this to a senior one thing I have wanted to say before is "You may have walked up hill in snow both ways but you weren't a 22 year old girl spending 6-8 hours a day on/waiting for buses when The Whisper Song came out." Today I was being hit on at a bus stop and the guy came over to me and held his phone in front of my face. On the screen was a picture of his dick. I guess with the advent of camera phones we no longer have to wait to see his dick. Oh thank heavens for modern technology....
|I'm having a very bad day but I'm actually in a great mood. Is this crazy? Maybe it's because I've been sick and this is the first day on the way out of the sickness. Maybe it's because of people online being freaking adorable. I really don't know why. I have NO IDEA what I'm going to do but I'm not completely overwrought w/ stress even though I was when I thought this might happen and made preparations to keep it from happening, but now, when my safeguards have been blown to hell? No stress. Some kind of mental health survival thing? The typelogic major challenge assertion of my type? The desperate optimism? Whatever it is it's kind of neat.

Would you do meth if it was legalized?
People for the most part ignore laws they disagree with. The number of people who use meth while it is illegal is pretty much the number of people who would use meth if it was legal. This was also a really strange drug to pick for this as meth is not really a "responsible" drug. Marijuana would have been a better pick as the number of people who use marijuana on a semi-regular basis would probably increase somewhat as law-abiding types who tried it in college come to treat it like alcohol. Meth isn't really a casual, weekends only kinda drug.
Are you for or against abortion?
I am pro-life on a personal level. I'm adopted so that's kind of a given. There is no way I could have an abortion w/o massive massive guilt and regret and I probably could never look at a friend the same if she had one. Politically I am pro-choice. Half the people in the country do not view a fetus as a human and thus are not going to view terminating a pregnancy as killing a person. This means abortion being illegal would just lead to a large black market. Black markets should be avoided as much as possible as they are the cause of much ill in society.
Would our country (United States) fall with a woman president?
Was her campaign run on a promise to cover the US in banana peels?
Do you believe in the death penalty?
(I hate these "believe in" questions by the way. I keep wanting to be like- well I'm pretty fucking certain it exists so yes.) No I do not support the death penalty. I do however believe it is okay to take out a government leader who is slaughtering their citizens.
Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?
Do you believe in God?
Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
I believe marriage should be privatized. I find marriage licenses abhorrent. How ridiculous is it that we have to ask the government's permission to get married? As long as marriage isn't privatized though I think the 14th amendment makes it kinda necessary to allow same sex marriages.
Do you think its wrong that so many Hispanics are moving to the USA?
I favor open immigration. There should be a process. But it should be a much simpler process to go through than it currently is and no one should be denied unless they have a criminal background. A VALID criminal background. Someone who has murdered someone does not get in, someone who criticized their government does.
A twelve year old girl has a baby...should she keep it?
It's not her decision. She is a child. She will not be the one responsible for the baby. The decision is her parents.
Should the alcohol age be lowered to 18?
Yes. There is no age at which people magically start drinking responsibly. I'm a taxi dispatcher that works Friday and Saturday nights. You can take my word on this one. That being said I think that it is ridiculous that we have an age limit past the age limit for adulthood on something.
Assisted suicide is illegal...do you agree?
No. But it doesn't count unless the person being killed has made their desire to die known to more people than just the one killing them. Preferably in writing. Preferably notarized.
Do you believe in spanking your children?
It wouldn't be their primary form of punishment but if I had children I would spank them.
Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?
Obviously. There are very few things I wouldn't do for a million dollars.
A mother is declared innocent after murdering her 5 children in a temporary insanity case, do you agree?
That depends on whether I believe that she was actually insane or if I think it's just the route her lawyer is going to try and get her off. I will say though that the temporary is an issue. If there's no history of mental illness I'm highly suspect and if she's still alive and not currently insane that doesn't look so good. Realizing you killed all your offspring while insane seems like it should be a pretty damn good trigger.
Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?
If I was why would I do this survey?
