It is funny to me, this concept that in politics, thousands of people all have essentially the same exact ideas, with limited variation. It gives us a way to think without actually having to think. I’m 21, I am in no way qualified to run for public office, I left college last year. But read my stance, and while you may not agree, I expect it to make some sense. The following is my stance on important political issues, I stand on no side of the aisle, except blunt honesty and what I truly feel is best for the USA.
Lower taxes, eliminate government programs, promote donations to private charity- Essentially I am saying private charities do a better job than the federal government. Sure not everybody will donate, but with less taxes, people might be willing to help there neighbor out. Just ask, would I rather give to FEMA or the Red Cross.
Decriminalize marijuana- tax it some, make money.
Eliminate seat belt laws- I don’t believe in seat belt laws or other laws to protect us from ourselves, everyone has the right to be stupid, so long as it doesn’t affect others.
Cut down on foreign aide- Stop giving money to countries that harbor terrorists, don’t give people money to be our friends, let them be our friends to get money.
Allow each state to determine if homosexuals should be allowed to marry. Of note, I would not support it, but really gay people getting married is the absolute last thing the federal government should be deciding, let populations vote on it.
There are tons of other issues but this is just my take on a few. Comment and let me know what you think.
