Like I said in my previous post, I was in
Less Government - I think there needs to be less government, less taxes, less programs.
Simpler taxes - I think paying/filing your taxes should be less complicated.
Taxes in general - I think the more you make, the more taxes you should pay.
Guns - I think any law-abiding citizen should be allowed to buy and carry a gun.
Abortion - I'm against it however, I think a women has the right to choose.
Budget - I think our current government spends too much money and we need to get this under control.
Freedom of religion - I think it is really important that everyone has the right to choose how, when, and what they worship.
Capital punishment - I believe that if you take the life of someone else (especially if it was premeditated) then you should die.
Education - I think more control should be given at the local level. Parents ought to have the choice about how/where their children are taught. More money ought to be given to teachers. Lower teacher-student ratios, more accountability in the schools.
Are there more issues to list here? Certainly. I just thought it would be good to write some of these things down. I think over the past few years that I've moved more towards the middle of the road. I CERTAINLY do not like/support the far left/Hollywood/radical/ultra-liberal movement. However, the far right is just as dangerous. In the airport this afternoon I picked up Lou Dobbs' new book "War on the Middle Class". In the brief few minutes that I thumbed through the pages, the key idea that I got from the book was the need for all of us to reread (or read) and ponder the the documents: Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. That's what I'm going to do this week.
