    Liberals on Libertarian Issues

    Please only vote in this poll if you are a liberal.

    I posted a poll not long ago on how Libertarians on this board feel about the platform issues of the Libertarian party. The poll can be found here (Libertarian Issues-Libertarians only please vote) and the Libertarian Platform is here.

    Now I am curious how conservatives and liberals view these same issues. In this poll, please vote if you are a liberal who does not identify as a libertarian. There is an identical poll for conservatives found right here.

    Poll incoming, be patient, I type slow.

    The only two that I agree with at all is ending drug prohibition (though only for pot and maybe a few similar substances) and some sort of work for amnesty program.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    To me, it's not about politics. It's about common sense, and that's the way I voted.

    Looks like the only thing I largely agree with is a less interventionalist foreign policy. But I am not sure that is realistic since we have stuck our nose in the world so long, we are no longer seen as a neutral country by anyone.

    Re: Liberals on Libertarian Issues

    Hmm, Most of them I don't fully agree with one way or the other.

    Laissez Faire Capitalism: I don't agree with this. There needs to be some regulation.
    End Drug Prohibition: Voted yes, but only for certain drugs. Some things should remain illegal. Anything should be considered for medical use though.
    Avoid Interventionism in foreign policy: Voted yes. There should be some exceptions though. If not intervening is going to put us at serious risk, we should still do it, or if it's a close ally and they ask us to intervene.
    End Foreign Aid: Voted yes. Pretty much the same caveats as above.
    End Gun Bans: I voted yes, but it kind of depends on what you mean. I do believe in some restrictions on gun ownership, but actual bans on owning guns I don't believe in. I also don't believe most bans against certain types of weapons are useful and should be repealed, with the exception of fully automatic weapons.
    Deregulate Healthcare: No, this is a bad idea. We need some healthcare regulation.
    Semi-Amnesty: No, the only type of 'amnesty' I believe in is if you're illegal and you leave the country before you're caught, you can apply to become a citizen legally. I think the legal path to citizenship should be made easier though.
    End Welfare: No, it serves a necessary purpose.
    Allow opting out of social security: No, again it serves a necessary purpose.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Re: Liberals on Libertarian Issues

    Most of these are not yes/no, but there are degrees of gray. (And there should have been a "none" choice)

    I voted for the drug prohibition, but only for marijuana...

    And for the partial amnesty, although it's a lot more complicated than that.

    What about other libertarian issues that overlap liberals a lot? Like gay rights and keeping abortion legal?

    i voted for interventionism, but thats it

    I realized the none choice thing as soon as soon as I went to vote in this one since it was for liberals.

    I took the issues from the Libertarian party website, the issues section. They did not list those, so I did not mention them.
