These are just my own personal views
It's 18 where I'm from. I agree with that. 21 seems stupid (can vote, and die in war for your country, but can't have a beer? doesn't makes sense to me)
I tend to lean towards the party that I feel is least likely to screw over our whole country... it changes election to election
like a draft? I hope this never happens again, but if absolutely necessary I'd rather have this than lose our sense of freedom
I think that every human being should be give the same legal rights, but the word marriage is sacred to me (even if it's been destroyed by straight people)
I don't think it can hurt...
I believe this should start at home and at a very young age (2 or 3) But schools do have a role to play here as well!
I think it's important to make the best decision for your own family. But be prepared to deal with all consequences
legalization of marijuana
I just don't see the point....
Universal Health care
Very grateful to have it! wouldn't give it up!
"performance pay" for teachers
If it means our kids actually learn something in schools then YES!
I don't know anybody who likes war, but IMO you're a moron if you don't support the soldiers who fight for us!
Methods of birth control
Whatever floats your boat... I don't agree with the Plan B pill however.
How many kids people should have
As many as they can love and support in all ways!
Wish I could be the first (I think there would be many benefits) but I love my chicken and steak!) We do buy free range and organic meats though.
It's a great song by the Trews! Also has it's place, but also can't stop everything
I'm on the fence.... sometimes I think it would be too harsh, and sometimes I think it wou;dn't be harsh enough.
I always said that I don't have a penis, so I'd let DH decide what would be best... but after doing more research I'm against it.
Fertility treatments/Assisted reproduction
If that's what works for you go for it!
A tough one... I know if it was me I'd probably want to die, but it would be difficult!
Illegal Immigrants *not immigration POLICY
Should probably be sent back to the country they came from, to start the legal immigration process if they so choose.... except in cases where the country they came from would surely kill them.
is this different from sin tax?
Kids drinking soda/eating candy/poptarts for breakfast
As a once in a while treat, it's fun! regularly it's a sign of parental neglect
Peanut Butter bans in schools for nut allergies
Probably saves a few lives. Non allergy families can survive on PB and J on the weekends!
Government involvement in citizens lives
Sometimes necessary, sometimes creepy
Seat Belt law/ laws to protect citizens from themselves
Need to be stricter, especially with children. In some cases, you can help stupid!
If you can do it go for it! As long as you accept all possible consequences.
Chili (with or without beans)
Not a fan!
Has it's place, but is a highly abused system
dress codes for school/office
would make a lot of decisions easier every day.
Elective C-sections/elective repeat C-Sections
I think it's pretty risky... but again if you are willing to accept the consequences
I want to exclusively breastfeed until around 1 year, but I'm also like babyled weaning. and introducing foods safely (no honey before 1 yr)
are critically important. And parents should be fined HEAVILY if not using properly
Children and Pets
Should be supervised when together. Can be very positive relationship
Nursing in Public
Go for it!
Cry it Out
Television and Infants/Toddlers
Infants no, toddlers older than 2: on occasion-when sick, rainy days
Caring for your elderly parents
Not in my immediate plans. If you can do it great, but I don't think it can be a responsibility forced on one child
We dont have them here...
Creepy as all get out!
That's the individuals business
So not my thing, but if they are all consenting adults, that's their business.
ahh Can't handle at all!
No different than adopting within your own culture!
Drug testing welfare recipients
pretty great idea! But I think they'd get farther doing blood alcohol tests
"Luxuries" on welfare- vacation, designer accessories, upscale phones, TV w/cable, etc
Phone and tv, whatever, but vacations, Pets, vehicles etc.... not cool!
I may not agree with them all, but I always try to be respectful
Mandatory breastfeeding attempts/prescriptions for formula
Everyone should do what is best for them
I think bed sharing can be very dangerous, but I believe that co sleeping has many benefits.
TTC on assistance
If thats what works for you go for it!
Infants/toddlers in bikini style swim suits
I think they are kinda cute, but I worry about proper sun protection. I don't buy the 'pervert' argument. someone with a sick mind would see the same thing with your kids wearing a turtle neck. But I do agree there is a modesty issue, and I don't think little kids need to be that exposed to the sun
Leash backpacks for kids
I think they display a lack of confidence parents have in themseleves and their abilities.
Setting up children for failure and issues that will take years of therapy to fix!
TV watching for kids under age 2
Against this! Find other activities to interact with your kids, TV under 2 is proven to lead to Adhd and other disorders, and in no way benefits the child.
