Hmmm... let me take a a quick glance at this.
What ones do you have a problem with?
And keeping in mind your previous statement -"I'm sure the Framers wouldn't have had any problem with hardly any of them either." -no1marauder
1. You think health care is a basic human right, and that single-payer national health insurance is a worthwhile reform on our way toward creating a non-profit national health care service.
2.You think that human rights ought always to trump property rights. (far to vague)
3.You think U.S. military spending is an obscene waste of resources, and that the only freedom this spending protects is the freedom of economic elites to exploit working people all around the planet.
4.You think political leaders who engage in "preemptive war" and invasions should be brought to trial for crimes against humanity and judged against the standards of international law established at Nuremberg after World War Two.
5.You think public education should be free, not just from kindergarten through high school, but as far as a person is willing and able to go.
6. You think that as a society we have a collective obligation to provide everyone who is willing and able to work with a job that pays a living wage and offers dignity.
7.You think that a class system which forces some people to do dirty, dangerous, boring work all the time, while others get to do clean, safe, interesting work all the time, can never deliver social justice.
8.You think that regulating big corporations isn't enough, and that such corporations, if they are allowed to exist at all, must either serve the common good or be put into public receivership.
9.You think it's wrong to allow individuals to accumulate wealth without limits, and that the highest incomes should be capped well before they begin to threaten community and democracy.
10. You think that wealth, not just income, should be taxed.
11.You believe in celebrating diversity, while also recognizing that having women and people of color proportionately represented among the class of oppressors is not the goal we should be aiming for. ????????!!!!! I dont even understand this race baiting and sexist mumbo jumbo
12.You think that the state has no right to kill, and that putting people to death to show that killing is wrong will always be a self-defeating policy. (would that include abortion ? No ? I didn't think so)
13. You are open to considering how the privileges you enjoy because of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and/or physical ability might come at the expense of others. (liberal white guilt syndrome)
14.You think that, ideally, no one would have more wealth more than they need until everyone has at least as much as they need to live a safe, happy, decent life.(communisim)
