Just curious what some of your guy's politcal views are and which american candidates you like.
I suspect a lot of you like Bernie Sanders but personally I'm a libertarian at essence and am supporting Rand Paul. I believe in freedom 100% and that everyone is accountable for themselves for the MOST part. Maybe I should say 99% because I do think there are people who can't take care of themselves and don't have loved ones to support them or cant get enough help from private charity so theres room for some welfare policies. I will compromise on that but ultimately its important to create as many jobs as possible while upholding the protection of property (overall environment being most important). You can only create jobs by making it easier for job makers to succeed (aka business owners especially small ones and news one). I do believe in trickle down economics when its done properly. If you want to tax the extra big companies more I'm for it but no one should pay over 50% of their earnings unless they received major amounts of subsidies paid out of your and my pockets.
The more wealth created the more surplus to help the less fortunate and I mean the ones who are legitimately poor off unlike many who take advantage of freebies the government gives out.
Economy is the most relevant thing to quality of life abroad and regulation should only revolve around protection of liberties, health (like workplace exposures and air purity) and like I said before, environment and property. These are just some examples. I believe in lower taxes for everyone except big companies that have benefitted from tax payer subsidies like oil, big pharma and bankers. They should pay more until its been judged that they've compensated by the supreme court.
To get rid of lobbying lets get rid of government power so theres nothing to lobby for!
Reduce politician's pay checks!
I'm very passionate about my beliefs and care to hear yours. Please go easy on the name calling.
Well done Australia!
In the coming US elections, the best choice is probably the Humane Party.
Their policy includes:
Fun little fact! It was the nazi's who first put animal protection into effect making vivisection illegal and creating some of the first animal protected parks.
"An extended chapter of our talk was devoted by the Führer to the vegetarian question. He believes more than ever that meat eating is wrong. Of course he knows that during the war we cannot completely upset our food system. After the war, however, he intends to tackle this problem also. Maybe he is right. Certainly the arguments that he adduces in favour of his standpoint are very compelling."

Godwin's law proved once again!
argueing politics is like argueing religion. the nice part about the US for now anyhow is the fact that we are allowed to have all the various views with limited infringement on our rights etc.. If one guy wants to have an Arsenal of guns good for him he's free to do so. If another guy does not like that good for him he's free to feel that way. neither is forcing anything on the other or are they trying too? same holds true with the other fun topics like abortion and climate change and foriegn policy etc...
least we still have the various points of views trying to balance the equation. Least we still have that much. imagine if any one party became the dominate force say 90% of the people felt that way and you where in the 10% man that would stink!
Climate change is not a political issue, And gun-regulation shouldn't be. They've been POLITICIZED (as people are doing under my new funny video about these 2 issues
They're politicized because of money (and paranoid people. Latest news is the shooters mother was paranoid about people breaking into her home, and kept 2 loaded guns, which - as usual- ended up killing innocent people).
No, I'm not saying the guns should've been taken away. She should've been forced to be more responsible.
most people don't know whats good for them and when its time to bite the bullet they pass it off to the next generation :P
