Controversial Survey meme

Imported from FurAffinity...

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

Yes. I'm doing it, aren't I?

[02] Would you do meth if it was legalized?

Not only no, but hell no. I'd yawn and hope that people would quit ruining their lives with it.

[03] Abortion: for or against it?

Against it, but not to the point of banning it or even discouraging women from having them. I'd much rather see them made unnecessary by avoiding the pregnancy in the first place...and no, that does not mean abstinence.

[04] Do you think a country would fail with a female president?

No more than I think it would fail with a black president. The person's race or gender aren't important. Their policies are. Obama would be just as much a failure if he were white and rich.

[05] Do you believe in the death penalty?

Yes. There are some crimes for which no lesser penalty is acceptable or appropriate.

[06] Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?

*yawn* Same as with meth: I just wish people would quit ruining their lives with it.

[07] Are you for or against premarital sex?

For. Marriage is a commitment that means much more than sex. The two issues should be separated.

[08] Do you believe in God?

No. I believe that deities are no more than adult fairy tales, invented to ease the pain of loneliness and death and enforce morality. However, that's my belief. Anyone else is free to believe anything they wish without interference from me, as long as they recognize I have the same right. It's when they try to force me to believe as they do that I have problems.

[09] Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?

Yes. The situation as it stands now is nothing more than legalized gender discrimination. To those who say "but the people should have the right to decide what marriage is defined as", I would ask a simple question: Which of your fundamental rights would you want to be subject to a popular vote? Your right to keep and bear arms, perhaps?

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

Yes. Key word: illegally. I have no problem with immigration, from wherever, as long as the immigrants truly want to become Americans. Those who are here illegally should be deported and forced to go to the back of the line - after paying for their crime.

[11] A twelve year old girl has a baby, should she keep it?

That's up to her and her parents. If the baby can be well raised in a loving family, then why not?

[12] Should the alcohol age be lowered to eighteen?

I'm of two minds about this one. On the one hand, I do sympathize with the argument that if they're old enough to fight and vote, they should be old enough to drink. On the other hand, the results of having the drinking age be 18 are well known and obvious: teenagers die in DWI crashes even more than they do now.

The real answer is for American society to quit being so neurotic about alcohol. This is one thing the Europeans get right: kids drink wine and beer there all the time, and learn the effects and how to deal with it, under their parents' supervision. It's not a mystery to them.

[13] Should the war in Iraq be called off?

Only when we've finished winning it.

[14] Assisted suicide is illegal: do you agree?

No. I do believe there should be adequate safeguards to prevent murder from hiding under that label, but if someone wishes to end their life - after deciding to calmly and deliberately - they should be able to, and to obtain any assistance they may need.

[15] Do you believe in spanking your children?

Yes. The rise in crime rates since spanking became unfashionable speaks for itself, and louder than anything I can say. Not that I'm ever going to have children...

[16] Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?

No. I'd lament the loss of the money, of course, but there are some things that are wrong when done for any reason. It's not just burning a piece of fabric. It's an expression of contempt for everything that the US is and stands for. That's something I'd expect Obama to do, not do myself.

[17] Who do you think would have made a better president? McCain or Obama?

Obama is doing about what I expected, so McCain. He's not my first choice either, or my second or third, but he'd still have done much better than the Community Organizer-in-Chief.

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

Anyone who would judge me based on these answers doesn't know how I think about things. There's nothing here that should surprise anyone.
