6. Free trade
7. Reduce spending and lower the deficit
8. Pro business
9. No capital punishment
10. Pro life
11. No gun control
12. Improve border security
You're pretty similar to me, except:

1. I am "iffy" about privatizing Social Security. Privatizing it would inherently make it less secure.

2. I think gays should be able to enjoy all the rights of marriage, including being officially "married" and not merely joined in a union. It's largely symbolic, but it's an important distinction.

3. I am pro-choice and pro-death penalty (although the death penalty system must be reformed).

4. I definately believe in gun control.

On many "hot button" issues (e.g., abortion, gun control, gay marriage) I lean pretty far to the left, but on other issues (e.g., war, taxes) I lean pretty far to the right.

I dont know if him being black is a hurdle as much as his name is. Seriously I dont care if they cloned him from Reagans dna, I cant see the United States of America having a president obama. You know what Im saying. Thats sounds stupid Im sure to alot of you, but its true.

Re: Who Would You Vote For?

100% John McCain
98% Rudy Guiliani
95% George Pataki

Right on the money for me, I'm 110% behind John McCain. And if Rudy Guiliani managed to get the nomination instead of McCain, I'd be very much behind him as well.

Warning, pandora's box opening: I'm in favor of sending tons and tons of troops to Iraq.

Re: Who Would You Vote For?

Bill Richardson
John Edwards
Dennis Kucinich
Ron Paul
Joe Biden
Barack Obama
Al Gore
John Kerry
Duncan Hunter
Wesley Clark

In leading up to the last election, the 2 guys I liked in the Democratic Primary were Kucinich and Clark. I also consider myself pretty moderate, and as someone said earlier, there is not enough parody within the questioning for me.

Yes, one daughter, 3 months old. And I can't remember how draft rules apply to me. I'm 27, which means, should a draft be instituted, I think (though not positive) I'd be eligible right now, but would soon be deemed too old. I think they target ages 20-28 in a draft? I dunno for sure.

But I get the gist of your question. If drafted, I'd be proud to go. There's a military history in my family and I was actually very VERY close to entering the service after 9/11.

I'm not one of those types that thinks send more troops as long as you don't send me or anyone I know.

Re: Who Would You Vote For?

then, in my book, you qualify as a true american. its very easy to spout off saying we should do this, we should do that. but if you, personally, are ready to back it up, then you are A ok in my book

Yeah that's the problem.

Draft. I'm in favor of it. And yes, I realize that makes me a very slim minority.

Also, assuming we do need to boost troop levels (which many don't agree, but assuming we do for the sake of argument) the country might want to consider giving all soldiers a pay raise. Pay them more and you'll definitely get more volunteers. BUT... we'd need to raise taxes to do it, because we can't drive the deficit any higher. And that would be REALLY unpopular, to raise taxes (unpopular in and of itself) in order to fund an unpopular war. So that doesn't really make much sense.

Draft is the logical solution, assuming we're sending more troops.

Re: Who Would You Vote For?

i really dont think that is the answer. its something about the mentality of the middle east. kill or be killed. no matter how much we try to interject, the mindset remains the same

Re: Who Would You Vote For?

PS For the record, I think Bush is a moron if he thinks that sending what amounts to a 15% increase in troops is going to produce significant results. At this point, I think you either go big (like McCain suggests) or you go home (like Obama and Hilary suggest). You definitely don't go somewhere in the middle and just eff around for another 5 years like Bush is doing.

I prefer going big. Bush is right when he says that if we don't succeed in Iraq, the middle east is going to be a friggin mess, and will likely cause us tons of headaches down the road. He's just a moron regarding how to get it done.

Re: Who Would You Vote For?

I'm not. I pay my taxes like everyone else, and I'll be damned if someone is going to tell me whether I have to serve or not. It's a beautiful thing having a voluntary military.

I don't agree with this war, so therefore I wouldn't go.

If this was Afghanistan where we are defending ourselves from a regime that attacked us, I'd be glad to be drafted, even though war isn't exactly my favorite thing to be doing with my life.
