5. What are your thoughts on Global Warming?
Doesn't exist
It exists, but human civilisation has little or no effect on it. It is a cyclical function, so there is no sense in hurting economic growth to try and stop something we didn't create.
It is a mark of the irresponsibility of industrial civilisation, which is why we must take meaures to reduce Co2 emissions NOW.
A mark of the harm capitalism inflicts on humanity. It is a sure sign that the only way our planet can ever fair, to people and to nature, if capitalism was abolished
Global warming is a problem that should dealt with through private organisations dedicated to developing alternative fuels and such. We should leave the state out of this.
Global warming is a lie perpetrated by the enemies of the United States in order to undermine US dominance in the world. We can only stop this by sheer force.

7. A recent study revealed that the United States is the only First World country which as a whole, still holds a hostile attitude towards Evolution. Why is this the case?
Because the United States, remains, the only Western nation that is fighting to preserve traditional morals, which is undermined by evolution. The people of Europe & Canada have been brainwashed by secular socialists.
Because the United States remains today, the only Western country that as a whole, hold an anti-scientific/intellectual attitude. The people of America have been indoctrinated by old-fashioned religious authorities.
This is no surpise. The United States, being the most capitalistic country in the West, is also has a society which is unlikely to view things analytically. This pereserves the position of powerful capitalists in the market.
Because the people of America have been collectively lead to make subconcious decisions by our media and government. We must let everyone make up their own minds, independent of any large entity.
8. What are your thoughts on the the healthcare system?
Healthcare prices in the United States have gotten too far out of hand. We must legislate various regulation to curb prices on medicine.
Healthcare in the United States has become too problematic as a private entity. It is time we turn it over to the state like in Sweden or Norway, to enrue all citizens have access to the care they need.
"Universal healthcare" is just a propaganda term for socialised medicine. Don't let the American left fool you, in Norway and Sweden, access to healthcare is free, but second-rate. Just as Michael Savage said: "Everybody gets it but it's not that good..."
The American healthcare system is a stark example of what capitalism does to a society. The liberal view of universal healthcare is insufficient to help the problem, only a full change to socialism can do that.
9. Generally speaking, "proportional representation" in a legislature is the most fair, as it ensures all groups are proportionally represented. How do you feel about this claim?
Agree because it helps small parties get some level of say in a democratic government.
Disagree because it can give leverage to small extremist parties.
Agree because it gives better voter security to the poor and minority groups
Disagree, because full democracy leaves danger for a "tyranny of the majority" to arise
Agree, because it makes a one-party state nearly impossible
Disagree because it makes a one-party state nearly impossible

The right of a citizen to do what whatever he/she wants, as long as it does not hurt others
The right of a citizen to be free from economic opression
12. What is your view on affirmative action?
It is does more harm than good, because it teaches minorities to rely on their colour/ethnicity to gain a job/admission to college
It is good, because it gives historically disadvantaged groups the opportunity to better themselves socially and economically
It is harmful, because it causes people to see others in terms of groups rather than individuals
It is a lie of capitalist society to distract poor minorities from issues of economic oppression
It is a dangerous form of social engineering that will eventually incite a race/class war, paving the way to a Communist takeover
13. What is your view on citizen ownership of guns?
It is the only thing that is keeping the government from raiding all of our homes
The Second Amendment is largely open to interpretation, and is at best, a clause that no longer applies. Repeal it.
Keep the Second Amendment a part of the U.S. Constitution, but pass legislation to better regulate the sale of firearms to enure social safety.
The Second Amendment was a business-serving move that has led to the creation of an arms-industry that now cannot be stopped, as to do so, would be "unconstitutional"
Citizen ownership of guns is harmful because it contributes to rebellion against the state.

States rights should be protected at all costs, even at the expense of certain individuals/groups. This is the only way liberty can survive

States rights is an abstract, therefore irrelelevant concept. Borders are arbitrarily created for the protection of private property, and mean nothing beyond human conctruction
