Many people assume that I am far right because I lothe Marxists of all stripes. Marxists are the enemy of America and Western Civ. Most are mental patients like John Brown who are codled by the system. Even the Duck who I like is missing a few cards from his deck. Ducky should be given a luxury suite and cable at club Gitmo.
The far left has made the war on terror and abortion its litmus tests. As a Jew I am concerned about thocracy. However, it is not likely to come from Christians who recognize the division between Civil and theological law. In fact I have never been the recipient of any anti semitic abuse from Christians who have welcomed me as a friend into their homes and churches as a Jew. The groups most likely to impose actual theology are the deranged accolytes of Marx and Jihadi lunatics.
There is a global problem with the followers of Allah being unable or unwilling to get along with others. If you are viewing Islam through the prism of your own religon think again. Does your religion advocate global hegemony and Jim Crowe? If you are Ducky the answer is yes but for the rest of us the answer is no.
Lets go down the list
I am for a Jared Diamond type approach of sustainable and responsible use of resources. Lets drill in ANWAR but use the reasonably safest approach to minimize risk to the environment. The notion is sustainable development and hunting is a part of the process.
I understand that some are unable to work due to disability. Most welfare recipients are children. Drug and alcohol testing should be required to maintain benefits. I support workfare as more humane then welfare.
I support regulatory agencies suck as OSHA, EPA and FDA. However I would like to streamline rules so that the average person could understand them. The notion is balance between government and the private sector.
I am a Union member and support the right of workers to unionize. I would chane the laws and require officers to have worked at least a decade.I would also like to reduce political contributions to one percent of Union dues. Unions are a public trust and not a slush fund for far left nuts.
I favor the creation of tailored default national insurance. This would allow people to buy policies suited to their needs and would end the state by state mayhem. I do not need aroma therapy and am willing to pay for a policy that excludes that option.
I favor legal vocational based immigration from countries that the US has historic ties with or are crucial to our future like India and China. The notion of family based immigration is no longer optimal.
I favor civil unions but am against marriage. Gays should be entitled to respect and human dignity like the rest of us. I define marriage as a religious term and I do not want Ruth Bader Ginsburg deciding my religious terms. I use the term respect rather then tolerance. All humans deserve respect except for Utopians whose lunacy endangers all of us.
I loathe nanny state taxes on gasoline, tobacco and alcohol. Regressive taxation is an abomination.
I am against gun control as disarming the population is often a prelude to genocide.
I would like to see a more Pro Indian US foreign policy. India,Canada, China and Brazil are part of our future France is part of our past.
I will answer more questions as they are raised. I have always been an anti Communist Liberal. The problem is that term is now the home of John Kerry who has a record of appeasing Communists. I do not negotiate or work with Communists and believe that they should be placed in a suitable environment such as an insane assylum. If Commies break the law they should be denaturalized and deported even if they were born here.
