So, you say you aren't just a party line type of person?

Ok, let's just see how reasonable people here are. I want you to tell us what policies, concepts, beliefs, you support that are championed by an opposing party.

Of course I will start.

As a right leaning person I support the Left on the following...

1. Gay marriage
2. Legalize Pot
3. Streamlined immigration process
4. Abortion for rape and incest victims
5. Stronger background checks on firearms

Qatar has the biggest and best base in the middle east.

These will remain our "friends" forever. They are rich and have no way to defend themselves against their Arab neighbors that would want to take their treasure. By our mere presence, we are the security guards guarding their treasure that cant be replaced.
Don't we have some 6000 embassy security personnel? Hence the quotes around "base". I never meant to imply we have a stategic base to launch operations from. Wrt to Qatar and Bahrain, having Iraq as an ally in the region helps us in different ways, but still very valuable.

On the SEC, I wouldn't say more harm than good but regulatory capture is over the top right now. If our regulators made better salaries, we would see less regulatory capture. The SEC is cracking down on insider trading currently. They are finally going after the big boys on that now. It's nice. Under Bush's SEC they only went after small fries.
It doesn't matter how much you pay the SEC regulators if they know there's a $200 million payday waiting for them at the end of their tenure. The only way I can see to eradicate this is major restrictions on the revolving door. Something like you can't work in the financial industry for 20 years or longer after leaving the SEC.

How do your first two items equate to small government?

Ignoring abortion for now until you clarify your stance, I don't see out any small government champion can be for capital punishment. It costs more than putting people away for life, much more. It's also never been shown to be an actual deterrent to violent crime.

I don't have a problem philosophically with putting someone to death who has committed a heinous crime. But pragmatically, the death penalty just makes no sense. Plus there's always a chance new technology will come out and prove a person innocent after being jailed for 30 years. It's happened hundreds of times with DNA. I think those people should have a chance at life.

They are not allowed to leave the embassy armed. A violation could result in them kicking us out. They don;t need us anymore.

All about this. And I see more and more people going this way every year yet we have no party unless we want to vote for "fringe" parties like the Libertarians.

I'm bipartisan. I dislike both parties. I just dislike the Dems slightly less than the Republicans. That being said, I'm usually more pissed off at the Dems because I, for some stupid reason, actually expect them to occasionally do something with which I agree.

I don't mind government spending as long as there's a clear benefit and as long as it can't be done more efficiently in the private sector. That means I reject probably about 3/4 of spending on principal. Only an extreme fiscal conservative would label that position as being pro-big government.
Like I said, BIG govt. My sniff test is the Constitution. Since yours is not, then yes, you are for BIG govt. I've seen you defend corporatism too.

The guys pulling that kind of cheese aren't working/have worked at the SEC. They stay in private sector the whole time.

There aren't too many guys pulling down multimillions a year. As a whole, finance is overpaid but the guys at the very top (some of whom have earned it) skew it.

My main point of differentiation with my party is regarding abortion. I've gotten to the point where I don't even bring it up with my family or my lefter-leaning friends any more. There are other, less volatile issues for which I lean moderate-Republicanny, like welfare and preservation of the nuclear family and stuff, but that's the big one.
