You all did an amazing job coming up with issues for this post. Since the list is so long lets try to keep our stances to a minimum. EX: I'm for teacher performances based pay. This is based on many things, but in general, I'm for it for I would just put "For". A few sentences is fine, but with such a long list I don't think people will really read through it all of we all explain why and how we are for or against the issues.

Thanks again!

Abortion
Uh.. not for but pro-choice. Your body, your choice.

Drinking age
For, it's fine the way it is but I would be on board with lowering it.

Political stance
Pretty liberal, occasionally libertarian.

Selective Service
Against, volunteer only please.

Gay marriage
For!!!

Universal pre-k
For

Sex education
For

Vaccinations
As long as the parents are educated- I don't care. We personally did delayed vax.

Sin Tax
Against

Legalization of marijuana
For

Universal Health care
FOR!

"Performance pay" for teachers

Against

War
Against in most cases.

Methods of birth control

Whatever works for each family as long as they've educated themselves on whatever they choose. I'm okay with every type of BC I've heard of, except using abortion as a form of BC.

How many kids people should have
None of my business as long as they can support them. I agree with Kes.

Vegetarian/eating meat
We eat meat, but I don't care what you do.

Gun control
For, but it's the fine the way it is now. Nothing more than that.

Death penalty
Against

Circumcision
Research it and do what you think is best. We have a girl so it hasn't been discussed too much in my house but if we have a boy, he won't be circumsized.

Fertility treatments/Assisted reproduction
For

Assisted suicide
For, with strict guidelines in place

Illegal Immigrants *not immigration POLICY
I understand why people want to come here for a better life. I wish it were easier to become a citizen... I don't really know what my political position is on it.

Gender Selection
Generally against, but I've heard of cases where certain diseases are hereditary to females or males only so I could understand in those cases.

Fat Tax
Against

Shopping Carts
Um, I'm for putting them away. It's not that hard.

Kids drinking soda/eating candy/pop-tarts for breakfast

Generally against, but once in a while is okay for us.

Peanut Butter bans in schools for nut allergies

For if a child has anaphylaxis reactions, otherwise I think other precautions can be made without banning it.

VBACs
For

Government involvement in citizens lives
I don't understand this. I like minimal involvement from the government in my personal life. ???

Seat Belt law/ laws to protect citizens from themselves
Against with adults, for with children.

Plastic Surgery
Whatever floats your boat, so for.

Generally against but it's your choice.

Introducing solids
For, but not before 4 months unless medically necessary.

Car Seats
Uhhh for? I'm a huge fan of extended rear facing and using a 5 point harness for as long as possible. A 2 year old in a booster seat is not cool in my book.

Spanking
Generally against. Definitely not for us. Do what works for your family!

Children and Pets
Sure, as long as the parents agree to primarily care for the animals and they are always supervised when together.

Nursing in Public
FOR! (If you are comfy with it)

Cry it Out
Against for newborns & small infants.

Diamonds
For if they are certified as acquired humanely.

In-N-Out Burger
I don't remember, it's been years since I've eaten there.

Polyamory
For

Whatever works for your family, but it wouldn't work in ours.

Against

Infants/toddlers in bikini style swim suits
For

Leash backpacks for kids
For

Abortion pro choice

Drinking age: leave it at 21

Political stance: fairly conservative, but not on every single issue.

Selective Service: Voluntary

Gay marriage: for

Universal pre-k: for

Sex education: for

Vaccinations: my kids were vacc'd on time, so I guess that makes me "for"

Sin Tax: ?

legalization of marijuana: doesn't really bother me either way

Universal Health care: I think the states should deal with this issue (ditto Tammy)

"performance pay" for teachers: ?

war: not "for", but support our troops regardless

Methods of birth control: Personal decision

How many kids people should have: not my decision

Vegetarian/eating meat: whatever individuals choose-I am a meat eater though.

gun controlL Against

Peanut Butter bans in schools for nut allergies: For

VBACs: for ,if possible

Government involvement in citizens lives: I prefer limited involvment.

Plastic Surgery: for this, but I can't see the wisdom in going overboard; I have had reduction surgery and it was the best thing I've ever done for myself.

Chili (with or without beans) With

Welfare: I'm for social programs when used as a temporary helping hand; not long term use if you aren't trying to better yourself.

Elective C-sections/elective repeat C-Sections: Elective-no, unless there is an issue known ahead of time. Elective repeat-yes they are ok with me; if I had gotten pregnant again, I'd have scheduled one. (my DS and DD were both sections, due to fluke issues in labor)

Sex education - against in elementary schools. this needs to be taught by parents.

Vaccinations- for

Sin Tax- for

legalization of marijuana-for

Universal Health care- against. but i am for more restrictions on insurance companies.

"performance pay" for teachers- pay based on performance? against

war- in the case of another country outright attacking, im for defending ourselves.

Methods of birth control- for!!

How many kids people should have - If they can afford to take care of and provide for all of them, who am I to say how big someone's family should be?

Vegetarian/eating meat - for people who choose to do so.

gun control- against. If you criminalize guns, then the only people who have them will be the criminals.

death penalty- for

circumcision- for. If someone chooses to not circumcise their child, that is their choice. same for those who choose to do so.

Fertility treatments/Assisted reproduction- For!!!

Assisted suicide- torn

Illegal Immigrants *not immigration POLICY against.

Gender Selection- as in selecting what gender of child to have? extremely against. If you would love your child less for not being the gender you wanted, then you don't need to have kids, IMO.

Fat Tax- against

Shopping Carts- as long as they are kept on the store property...

Kids drinking soda/eating candy/poptarts for breakfast-against! well, poptarts im no so concerned about, but soda/candy is a big fat NO.

Elective C-sections/elective repeat C-Sections- for! if vaginal birth scares the crap out of someone, who am I to say they can't have a c-section?

Introducing solids- for, in age-appropriate times 5mo+

Car Seats- for. But in the case of children continuously getting out of car seats, but sitting perfectly still flat on their bottom when sitting like a "big kid".. its more dangerous to have a child who will not stay put in a car seat, then to have them sitting still in a regular seat/seatbelt.

Spanking- in extreme cases, for.

Children and Pets- for

Nursing in Public - for!

Cry it Out- for, in age appropriate times. 7mo+

"Luxuries" on welfare- vacation, designer accessories, upscale phones, TV w/cable, etc - if someone can have luxuries on welfare? i don't see a problem with it..

Organized religions- ??

Mandatory breastfeeding attempts/prescriptions for formula- against! Yes, i do realize breast is best, but formula works better for a lot of families from the get-go.

Family beds- whatever floats their boat. For.

TTC on assistance - against in a way..

Infants/toddlers in bikini style swim suits - against!

TV watching for kids under age 2 - for, with age appropriate/education things. Nick Jr/VeggieTales, PBS, etc.

Mandatory breastfeeding attempts/prescriptions for formula Against.

Family beds For me? No. Never. Not in a million years.

TTC on assistance Oh, please don't.

Infants/toddlers in bikini style swim suits I see nothing wrong with this.

Leash backpacks for kids If it works for you, great. I wouldn't use one.
