I've been seeing a couple of these lately and they look pretty fun.

Lately I've been really wanting to get to know other members on a more personal level, but I think this would be a good opportunity for you guys to know me on a personal level.

Anyways, feel free to ask me about my personal life, what I believe, politics, ambitions, how I came to this site, favorite sports teams, anything!

If I'm correct (I really don't pay much attention to politicians honestly, because I hate most of them. I care for political ideologies, not the government leaders that hold them) Rick focuses more on social issues such as abortion, gay marriage, ect. and holds a very Conservative position on them.

In addition, I agree with him on economics.

Interesting.

Are your reasons for agreeing with Santorum of a religious character?

That is what I am asking.

Are there any social issues you want to know of specifically?

If I were to not be a Christian my beliefs would still be the same, if not slightly different.

I would be still be against abortion, seeing that I believe the right to life starts at conception.

I would be undecided on gay marriage.

I would still be against drug legalization except for Marijuana, since I think it is ultimately detrimental to the society.

I would still be against legalized prostitution because I believe this may lead to an overall drop in morality among the society, and I also believe that this could lead to forced prostitution being a real problem.

Overall, regardless of religion I still hold Conservative views on social issues.

Sure... but I see you've explicated on a few below. So, I'll read those now.

If I were to not be a Christian my beliefs would still be the same, if not slightly different.

I would be still be against abortion, seeing that I believe the right to life starts at conception.

I would be undecided on gay marriage.

I'm not taking issue with your having religious reasons for social positions. I was just curious if the reason you hold the social views that you do is for religious reasons or not.

I have both secular and nonsecular reasons for the views I hold on social issues.

Is it any better due to it being illegal? In America, we've been spending more and more on drug control, arresting more and more people, but there's been no change in drug addiction rates. Wouldn't it be better to just legalize it and treat it as a medical issue rather than a criminal issue?

If it were to be legalized, wouldn't that be an easy way to take advantage of others and force them into prostitution, without the risks of getting caught for illegal activity?

Example:

Prostitution is illegal, girl prostitutes herself, gets caught by police. She fesses up about how she is in some prostitution trafficking business, bad guy eventually gets caught, budda bing.

Prostitution is legal, girl prostitutes herself. Nothing happens. She is being forced into prostitution.

I just think it may be an unnecessary risk. Also, I believe in objective morality, I believe God blesses the society that holds an overall good sense of morality, and I believe that prostitution undermines the objective morality God has set out.

Even despite religion, I still think the society should uphold an overall good sense of morality.

No change in drug addiction rates as opposed to what? Drugs being legal?

Anyways, I don't agree with the particular way the government is dealing with drug prohibition, but I still want drugs to be illegal.

I want drugs to be difficult to get. As soon as they become legalized, I am worried that drug usage among teenagers will skyrocket, which is ultimately detrimental to society since they are the ones who are to continue the society. I want as small amount of people on drugs as possible, for the health of the society.

and who do you suppose would pay for those medical treatments? Those rehabilitations? Those people who would recieve drugs through medical care professionals? What happens if a person can't get ahold of the drugs legally? What do you suppose will happen then? Certainly not criminal activity to gain possession of even more of the drugs the addicts want?

The more i contemplate on this issue, the more I come to realize that switching drugs from illegal to legal, would replace one set of costs with another, it would heap even more government upon the issue, and thus defeat the purpose if legalizing drugs in the first place according to most that argue in favor of it(that being a reduced governmental oversight/spending, reduction in regulations/laws, etc.)

The only drug I might perhaps be swayed to consider at this point would be the legalization of marijuana. Everything else imo, such as heroin, cocaine, etc. should honestly stay off the table of consideration.

Because realistically, people tend to keep things bottled up like this until confronted about it directly. Now it's obviously not the case all the time.

No, I think they both may lead to increased actions of rape and prostitution slavery.
