    White male
    Job: Defense sector scrub
    Grew up in Virginia
    Registered Party: Never have, never will
    Military: Processed at 30 years old and was two weeks away from my board before being cut off when the Army lowered the max age to 29.
    Abortion: No firm stance, but generally against abortions after 20 weeks.
    Gays: I'd prefer civil unions for all people but since marriage is the parlance of the times, let them marry. Just don't force a religious person to violate their faith to perform the ceremony if they do not wish to.
    Capital Punishment: In favor of it on a limited basis with some reform necessary.
    Drugs: legalize on a case-by-case basis
    Taxes: prefer lower with a better eye on wasteful spending in Washington.
    War: I see it as an extension of diplomacy, but abhor it. I favored Afghanistan to an extent. We overstayed out mission. I was against Iraq in 2003 mostly because I didn't see a viable plan of what the end goal was. War is not something to engage from the hip.
    Patriot Act: Against, against, against!!!
    Guns: Pro. While I tend to theoretically be on the radical side, I recognize the need for some compromise given the decline in societal values. So I don't favor fully automatic weapons having wide availability. Most modern gun control is silly at best, and an existential threat to our republic at worst.
    Civil liberties: When someone can define what this means, I'll answer.
    Middle East: I support Israel's right to exist and defend itself. We need to stay out unless we need to throw our weight around to prevent a war that would economically or otherwise threaten us in a direct manner.
    Election reform: Yes, please
