#1. Both borders? Or just Mexico?

#2. I agree. Do you mean *all* soldiers? Or just in Iraq? Afghanistan? Germany? Saudi Arabia?

#3. There's no such thing as free. We either pay in taxes, or though a deflated currency. Either way, this is a states issue if you look at the 10th Amendment. Look for this out of your governor, not president.

#4. Same thing... it's a states issue.

#5. Same thing.

We've given the federal government too much power and money, and what have we gotten? Would you consider social security a success? Medicare? The Veterans Affairs hospitals? If not, why on earth would you want them to control education and healthcare?

Get the **** out of the Middle East, cut off every dime of support to Israel, end the idiotic drug war, stop trying to censor the airwaves and the internet, restore the civil liberties that are our birthright under the constitution.

Irrational, unrealistic, hop off the Ron Paul bandwagon because you have no chance in hell at this moment in time.

Like stated, take small steps. Not trying to offend, just offering you a bit of realism. I want everything you want, but it cannot happen in the current nature of the political environment.

President that is actually going to depolarize the white house. A president who can actually think philosophically and ethically, and not for special interest groups. Greatest need for the greatest people.

The question was what do I want. Letting people know what you really want is generally a necessary, if not sufficient, condition of getting any of it. I'm not in the business of predicting what is actually going to happen or when.

Immigration: Amnesty for illegals already here, make immigrating legally easier, not build a redundant, expensive wall, but increase security through other means

Middle East: Send troops home but make better alliances with other countries (especially those in middle east willing to help) incase there's an emergency

Drugs: Legalize Marijuana and a few other substances, but definitely lessen the use of cocaine/heroine/opium through more emphasis on rehab, maybe harsher punishment, etc. Opium funds groups like Al-Qaeda

Abortion: Provide better education on safe sex and make birth control pill access easier for minors. If a mother decides to have an abortion, make her look at a sonographic picture of her baby before she's allowed to make a decision

Same sex marriage: Yes

Universal healthcare: No. But make it easier through welfare for the needy to access health insurance

Affiramite action: No! Affirmative action = legal racism
