GOSH, you could have written my auto a few years ago. Still live in the country on 8 1/2 acres, no longer raise stock, bujt try to buy locally raised food.
I consider myself a moderate liberal and lean to fiscal conservatism. I believe we should balance the budget by reducing the war department by at least 2/3, oil subsidies by 100%, illiminate the commerce dept, illiminate military foreign aid, Illiminate all nuclear weapons programs in the US, surge the peace corp, surge environmental research programs, education, infrastructure, security (police and firemen), repeal the tax cuts, restore taxes on corporations, and STOP ALL INTERFERENCE AND INVASIONS OF OTHER COUNTRIES !!!!
Work withing the UN and restore all international treaties, previously agreed to.
Spend 100 billion per year to illiminate starvation, putrid drinking water, land mines, cluster bombs, oil pollution, nuclear pollution and poverty.
When it comes to other social issues....wow! I really have some conservative ideas. Nothing to do with gays, guns, God or abortion.
Welcome, will look forward to some interesting debates.
