Are you for or against abortion?

Let me make something clear right now. Someone isn't for or against abortion. They're either for or against a woman's right to choose what goes on with her own body. That being said, I'm pro-choice. I will never be put in the position where I might have to have an abortion, so that's as far as I think my opinion should go. And, no, if I'm the father, I shouldn't have a say. If I didn't plan to have a kid and didn't take precautions, I'm at the mercy of what the woman wants to do.

Would the United States fall with a woman president?

Considering the mess that George W. Bush has made of this country, I really don't think anyone could screw things up more. A woman should have just as much right to try and fix his mess as a man. Anyone who thinks a woman can't be president is a sexist idiot. In case you haven't noticed, our mothers are women, so selling women short is pretty fucking insulting to my mother. You bastards.

Do you believe in the death penalty?

No. I don't think any civilized government has the right to execute people. (My father is turning over in his grave right now.) That being said, however, if someone killed Orlando or Shy I would want the right to kill the bastard myself. I guess I believe in Will's death penalty.

Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?

Yes. We could grow fields of it out here.

Do you believe in God?

I believe in a higher power that some people might call God. I call him Bob.

Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?

*laughs* Clearly.

Do you think it's wrong that so many Hispanics are moving to the USA?

There's nothing wrong with anyone moving to the USA. What's wrong is people sneaking into the USA illegally. And if the word moving is used here as a euphemism for illegally crossing the border, I can tell this quiz was written by a liberal moron. (Damn, my father just rolled right back over.)

A twelve year old girl has a baby...should she keep it?

What the hell is a 12 year-old girl doing having sex?? I'm telling you right now, if I found out that Rebecca was pregnant at 12, first, I would wonder where the hell her mothers were when she was running around, and second, I would hunt down the father and choke him to death with my bare hands. I might not be raising that little girl, but that doesn't mean I'll stand for anyone laying a hand on her until she's 45.

Anyway, no, she should not keep it. It should be put up for adoption if the grandparents wouldn't want to take over the responsibility for it. Most 12 year-olds can't take care of themselves, never mind raising a child.

Should the alcohol age be lowered to 18?

Yes. Either that or the legal age to join the military should be raised to 21. I'm sorry, but if a young man can be asked to die for his country, he should damn well be allowed to buy a fucking beer.

Assisted suicide is illegal...do you agree?

No. If someone has a terminal illness and wants to take his life, he should be allowed to put himself out of his misery. If he's unable, he should be allowed to ask someone to assist him without fear of that person being penalized. We're humane enough to put down our pets when we know they're in pain and keeping them alive is only prolonging the inevitable. Why can't we be allowed to do the same for ourselves?

Do you believe in spanking your children?

Not personally, no, but I won't tell a parent a light swat on the heiney is grounds to have their kids taken away. There's discipline and then there's abuse. Unfortunately, too many people don't seem to know where to draw that line. So, to keep the kids safe and to make sure parents don't unjustly lose their kids, let's just have a no spanking policy all around.

Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?

I don't need the money. But, seriously, when you look at everything, it's just a piece of cloth. America is the government, the people, our ideals and our beliefs. It's the struggles that got us our freedoms and it's the men and women who continue to protect those freedoms. It's the culmination of these things that makes our nation and that's what makes us who we are, not a flag. I guess I'm saying that if there was no flag to salute, America wouldn't cease to exist. We the people are not a symbol. We need to remember that when we watch people overseas burning our flag. They're not defeating us just because of that.

A mother is declared innocent after murdering her 5 children in a temporary insanity case, do you agree?

First of all, she'd be declared "not guilty," not "innocent." Incorrect terms aside, no, I don't agree. If a woman can kill her children and blame it on temporary insanity, there is no telling what she'd do if she had more children and something set her off. A woman who can murder her children should, at best, be put into a mental institution for the rest of her life. Oh, and sterilize her, too.

Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?

I'm not afraid, no. I know I'll be judged but I can't give a good goddamn anymore. That's the nice thing about getting older. You know that you can't change anyone else's mind and that no one can change yours.
