Drinking age? I think it should be 18. Now I know there's a lot of immaturity and stupid when it comes to being 18 and being drunk, so if bars/clubs etc want to keep a minimum age of 21 to enter their establishments then that's up to them. I just think it's stupid that you can be considered a legal adult and sign off on loans etc, vote, smoke cigarettes, fight combat in a war and risk your life, but you can't buy alcohol. No reason why this law can't model the ones set in England.
Legalize pot for recreational use. No reason not to. The war on drugs is pointless, does absolutely no good, it forces people to grow, use, buy in secret and it leads to more death, and it wastes billions of tax dollars.
Gay marriage? I don't agree with it, I think it's gross and weird as hell and I don't think they're real men, however it's none of my business and it shouldn't be the governments either. If a church is willing to marry two homosexuals, then good for the homos. No reason why they shouldn't be able to find true love. I do think there are some issues though when it comes to adopting children. That's a different argument for a different day.
Abortion? Personally I'm pro-life. There are exceptions like rape, incest, or if it's medically necessary to have abortions. But I believe life begins at conception. But just like gay marriage I don't think this should be the govt' business nor should it be mine. Being Pro-Life is just my personal belief and If someone wants to be pro-choice then that's up to them. But I'm not going to pay for it. No way in hell do I want my tax dollars to pay for abortions, clinics, etc. Just like I don't want my tax dollars paying for someone to have their tits enhanced. If they can't pay for it, then welp, looks like you're having the kid and then you can put it up for adoption.
We need massive immigration reform. We need to bring our troops home from overseas and put them on the borders instead. At least that'd be a start in the right direction.
I don't think there needs to be stronger background checks on guns. The federal govt already knows everything or can find out anything about a person. We don't need more gun control. We already have many laws on the books on what you can have as a weapon and where you can have them etc.
