    I believe all hand guns unless you are military or law enforcement be banned. I do think we should own shot-guns as we have a right to defend our house.

    I believe if a person has 2 million their is no reason he can not give the guy next to him some money who only has 200 dollars. No matter what people say we are all not allowed the same chances. Chances are the rich guy got it dishonestly anyway.

    I believe the welfare system needs reworked but not done away with.

    I believe we should not be in other people's countries we can develop a cell phone the size of a wallet but can not find alternative fuel sources yeah right.

    I believe we need stronger FDA and animal abuse laws even on our so called food.

    I believe a few companies should not be able to own most of our grocery shopping items just put it under different names.

    I believe wall street needs stricter rules and deravitives outlawed.

    I believe clear channel should not be allowed to own as many stations as they do.

    I believe we should be able to choose from more than 1 or 2 electric, water, and tv companies.

    I believe walmart and other companies that take jobs overseas should be taxed an unbelievable amount on their imports.

    I believe a universal healthcare system is better than what we have now.

    those are some of the things i believe not sure what other issues are needed.
    You don't "fit" perfectly into either party. If you choose to align yourself with one, there will large numbers of people that will claim that you're not a real ________.


    On tangential note. People like you give me hope. You developed a set of views and are now looking for a party. It seems that more and more people first decide if they want a (D) or an (R) and then adopt everything that party stands for.

    Not for nothing...he's pretty much an average American voter. Voting isn't and shouldn't be a personality test.

    I want to stand for the common man not a D or a R just was curious. Does that mean the same for a tea party or conservative? Am I right or left wing or another party?

    I'm socially liberal...

    Social issues, imo, have no place in American politics...

    If you're fiscally liberal, to me at least, you're a true liberal...

    Hard to pick one skit, even with the show's breief run, but the Racial Draft is a top 5er for sure.

    "The Asian delegation takes the Wu Tang Clan"....

    LOL! Wayne Brady too


    I hope someday that Chappel writes a book that better details the making of the show and the reasons he exited the public eye the way he did...
