Political survey thing

Stole this from Susan and I'm bored.

01] Do you have the guts to answer these questions and re-post as The Controversial Survey?

[02] Would you do meth if it was legalized?
Meth is disgusting and it causes physical and mental problems that will ruin your life. Of course not.

[03] Abortion: for or against it?
Saying you are for abortion sounds wrong. I'm not for going out and aborting fetuses for fun. But I think a woman has the right to choose what happens in her body. And if the situation warrants it, abortion I think it should definitely be considered as a viable option in our overpopulated world.

[04] Do you think the world would fail with a female president?
Of course not, some of the worlds greatest leaders have, historically, been women.

[05] Do you believe in the death penalty?
I don't fear death, so I think the death penalty is letting people off easy. I also think we have given the death penalty to many innocent people. Life in prison, to me, is much worse a fate than death.

[06] Do you think marijuana should be legalized?
Of course, I think it should be legalized, regulated, and taxed. It doesn't hurt anybody any more than cigarettes do, and could be a huge source of tax revenue to fund things like health care.

[07] Are you for or against premarital sex?
I think it's important for couples to know if they are sexually compatible before they get married. I don't believe teenage sex is okay, but between adults absolutely. How many marriages fail because the couple isn't compatible that way?

[08] Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
Yeah. Of course it should.

[09] Do you think it's wrong that so many Hispanics are illegally moving to the USA?
I think it's wrong that it's illegal for them to come here. Unless you are Native American, your ancestors were "illegal" immigrants too.

[10] A twelve year old girl gets pregnant, should she keep it?
Of course not! A twelve year old girl wasn't old enough to have sex, she certainly isn't old enough to raise a child. If her parents let her get pregnant, then they obviously can't help raise that child. It should be aborted, or put up for adoption.

[11] Should the drinking age be lowered to 18?
I'm leaving Susan's answer...
No, and here's why: the laws about alcohol are in place for a reason, it's not
because we don't want 18 year-olds to have fun, it's because the body is not able to properly process alcohol at 18. Furthermore, the brain is still developing until 23. If anything, the drinking age should be raised to 23. Also, as for the argument that if an 18 year old can fight a war he can have a beer, that's ridiculous. The age that it's possible to enlist in the military should also be raised to 23. Teenagers should not be fighting in wars. And until the brain is fully developed, they should not be allowed to make that sort of life altering decision.

[12] Should the war in Iraq be called off?
Iraqis don't want us, we don't want to be there, of course we should leave. The real fight should be with the Taliban in Afghanistan.

[13] Assisted suicide is illegal do you agree?
Again, leaving Susan's answer. I agree that it's illegal, (except in Oregon). I do not agree that it should be. People shouldn't be made to suffer when they are no longer able to live their lives.

[14] Do you believe in spanking your children?
Hmmm Susan's answer again... I'm lazy. I believe that it's okay to swat a child, once, on their bottom, preferably with a flyswatter, to get their attention, I don't believe in spanking as a punishment. It's been proven not to work, and I don't think it's okay to tell a child not to hit, and then hit them. Teach by example.

[15] Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?
Sure, pass the lighter.

[16] Who do you think would make a better president? McCain or Obama?

[17] Do you think Obama will be killed?
I hope not, but I'm sure some whacko racist is going to think about it.

[18] Should child predators be forced to wear signs identifying themselves?
There was recently a case where two teenagers had sex and were both charged with "having sex with a minor". They were both underage. They are both now classified as sex offenders, or child predators, for the rest of their lives. I think if it is a real creepo who has sex with a child, he should be chemically castrated. Problem solved.

[19] Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?
About what? I really expected something more controversial. I'm quite frankly, slightly disapointed.
