Being politically correct don't get it done
FUNDAMENTAL BELIEF: I strongly disagree with mandatory motorcycle helmet laws and everything that they represent.I happen to live in the Peoples Republic of Oregon where they never saw a tax they didn't like or a right that they didn't mind taking away (from the other guy). This is a place where people demand the right to murder unborn children calling it being "pro-choice". But these same "Liberals" don't get the whole "Let those who Ride decide" concept. These same "Pro choice" nitwits are adamantly opposed to allowing adult Motorcyclists to choose what safety equipment they want to wear. Coming from New Hampshire, where the State motto is "live free or die" I found the attitudes here in the PRO to be quite a culture shock. Oregon is hypocrite Heaven. No doubt....
OPINION 1: Government is seldom the solution to anything. Government does, however, almost always figure prominently as part of the problem.
OPINION 2: The "Welfare State" should cease to exist.
If able bodied people choose not to work, then they should starve. The small number of "real" hardship cases should be taken care of by private charties. "Welfare" programs should be for people who are truly down and out and should only be paid for several months (not decades).
OPINION 3: Professional criminals should be removed from society
People who persist in violent criminal activity should not be allowed back into society to continue to harm innocent people. Once it becomes apparent that a person is unwilling to live in a lawful manner, they should be executed. Of course, this presumes that an honest and ethical justice system is in place to ensure that only guilty people are convicted of crimes. IMO, this is not currently the case
OPINION 4: Most drugs should be decriminalized.
The so-called "war on drugs" is not working.
OPINION 5: There must be consequences for the flagrent disregard of others
People who are caught driving under the influence should receive very severe punishment (e.g. 3 Months in Prison, loss of license for several years, etc.). Ditto for those whose drug/alcohol use is determined to be the cause of a fatal accident.
OPINION 6: People in power must honor their role in society
Police and Public Officials need to be held to a higher standard of ethics than the Public. This means very severe penelties for corruption and inappropriate behavior.
OPINION 7: The power to govern must be returned to the people
OPINION 8: So-called Affirmative action and equal employment opportunity are mutually exclusive concepts. Blacks, females, Gays and one armed albino Eskimos should all be required to compete equally. If everyone isn't equal, then no one is equal.
OPINION 9: I favor contraception over abortion. Freedom of choice is not about being too lazy to stock up on condoms.
