Vaginas, really.

On a more serious note, I think the criminal justice system needs a ton of work.

Well, I am firm on most of my positions. The one I might be said to be most passionate about is a women's right to choose abortion. It has been integral, omnipresent in my life. It has caused me personal pain and suffering.

There is a cabal that is intent on a one world government, has control of the world's finances and pits people against each other through religion and politics. The UN is their tool through Agenda 21. The global warming issue is a scam and is used to create a group think and tax us to death. This I am sure of.

Becuase I believe it is necessary for the USA to stand up to nations that are basically thugs and gangsters. I think that we help make the world a better place though these actions, so I support it.

Minimum wage! :P

I don't want to rant, but because raising it is an awful idea, and we'd be better off to leave it as is or abolish it completely than to restrict economic freedom, job opportunities, and poverty mitigation.

My most firm position is Libertarian ideals, but that is a general sense.

I am almost self-righteously firm when it comes to the free market. I believe firmly in the free market, low taxation, and little government presence in the everyday lives of individuals.

Also, criminal justice reform.

+10 points for the free market!

In all seriousness, I couldn't agree more.

I agree. :) You should read some of my debates on the topic, and surf the economics forum for more. ;)

I will do just that. I actually have a debate on minimum wage myself and I also have one on corporate taxes, as well as one in which corporations are seen as people.

Now the North Korean regime has a nuclear stockpile and is aiming it at the United States, Japan and South Korea. I agree, that our intervention in the Korean conflict did lead to some good, but it also gave reason for a authoritative nuclear capable regime to dislike us even more.

Oh and if we didn't do it then north Korea would own all of Korea and would be even stronger now wouldn't it.

I actually have a book that I am reading currently, named "Crony Capitalism in America 2008-2012" By Hunter Lewis. It's a good book, you should read it, granted it is about 300 or some odd pages.
