Political hoo hah, disguised as a meme.
 Do you have the guts to answer these questions and re-post as The Controversial Survey?
Must have cause you are seeing them. :-)
 Would you do meth if it was legal?
There are enough problems in my life. Why add a drug that takes over it?
 Abortion: for or against it?
I HATE the thought of abortion. Now after saying that I do believe in this world at this time, it should be legal. There are children out there that COULD be adopted that have not been.
The religious Right want it outlawed then they should devote the money they are spending for fighting abortion on child welfare and adoption clinics. Stop abortion by finding a mother that can't afford to keep her child and PAY for letting it live. Teach prevention, kids love doing what is prohibited, just say NO is not working enough.
 Do you think the world would fail with a female president?
The world? or the US? We are not ready for a world government. We can't even keep the ones we have working. Is the US ready for a female president? I hate to say it but no. We have too many patriarchal ideal still buried in our hindbrains. Look at the news a female CEO of HP made just because of her gender. Not from the job she could or could not do. Maybe in 50 years.
 Do you believe in the death penalty?
Yes. Yes we will get the wrong person in one or two cases but using this to take out the worst might give the rest pause. Crime is rampant because we will not punish the offenders. Put them in country clubs with free tv, 3 free meals, free schooling. Put them back on chain gangs and put them to work. give the funds to homeless shelters, teachers and adoption centers.
 Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?
The WAR on DRUGS failed. People like doing things that are prohibited. Can anyone say Prohibition? That made the "underworld" stronger. http://cluegirl.livejournal.com/990
 Are you for or against premarital sex?
For adults? Who cares. Or do you mean for Junior High and High school kids? Sorry If they want to do it they will. As long as no one is doing something they don't want to do leave them alone.
 Do you believe in God?
Something is there. God, Allah, JEHOVAH, Yahweh, Odin, or were the Indians right with "The Great Spirit", Buddha. How many religions are there. Most talk about ONE over the rest.
Maybe her name is Bob.
 Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
The ONLY thing stopping it is homophobia. Well and the insurance companies. What? If a person is married their SO can get benefits. That means the Insurance companies would have to pay out more. If They are happy with each other why not let them get married. OH wait, religious idiots want that saved for male and female bonding. So what is in a word? Call it and the male/female thing a union and the idiots can call it a marriage in secret.
 Do you think it's wrong that so many Hispanics are illegally moving to the USA?
Two questions in there. Is it wrong that so many Hispanics are moving to the US? No
Is it wrong that so many PEOPLE are in the use illegally? YES. If you are here illegally then you should have NO benefits. Or you can pay taxes like the rest of us and support the system, then get benefits.
 A twelve year old girl has a baby, should she keep it?
first question is why the hell didn't someone teach her about contraception. Or HIM. Provide the protection and the kids won't get pregnant. Sex is fun and once they find that out you are not going to stop them. Maybe a 5 year implant in guys and girls when they hit puberty ?
 Should the alcohol age be lowered to eighteen?
Interesting thing is that the Germans got by for years with NO drinking age. Teach a kid to respect themselves and their limits and we would have fewer problems all around.
 Should the war in Iraq be called off?
The Iraqis have said they don't want us there. OK. Pack up and bring the troops home. Let them ASK for more assistance. Provide it cause we messed up their working system. Hey if Saddam was so bad why didn't they remove him? But we now owe them help. We held the war for OUR governments reasons, Not for the Iraqi people..
 Assisted suicide is illegal: do you agree?
No. If the patient wants to choose the time and means of their leaving let them. Why should a religious prohibition against killing and suicide restrict someone that does not live by that religion. Doctors say the Hippocratic Oath stops them.
"I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.
To please no one will I prescribe a deadly drug nor give advice which may cause his death."
Yet the original has been modified to include
"I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person's family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick."
 Do you believe in spanking your children?
Spanking yes. Beating no. Yet the difference is small. Sure spank the kid, let him or her know they did wrong. Bruises, blood and other damage that is abuse. Turn yourself in.
 Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?
As cluegirl states it is only a symbol but people have died for that symbol. Burning the flag is correct to destroy one that is unservicable. Personally I have to disagree with her on this one. Could I do it, sure but the cash would go to VFW and disabled Veterans homes.
 Who do you think would make a better president? McCain or Obama?
Neither? It was said long ago that a person that strives for power is rarely fit to wield it.
Neither of them will make many changes. No matter what they want to do there is too much bureaucratic Inertia to make many changes.
 Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?
Cue Cluegirl "Of course people are going to judge my answers. That's what this survey is about -- asking provocative questions so we can all pass judgment on each other. The trick lies in that the people whom I call "friends" will judge me on far MORE than my answers here. And the rest? Will think what they please, just like they always do."
