Should gay marriage be legal? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

I agree with Jill Stein's position on same sex marriage. She believes it should be legal on the federal level and should not have different policies for different states. "The federal government is charged with defending the human rights of all people, no matter which state they live in."

Ending our addiction to foreign oil

"President Obama has taken concrete steps to make us more energy independent—and we are now less reliant on foreign oil than at any point in the last 16 years."

I like the direction of clean energy production masde when Obama took office in 2008.

Should E-Verify, the federal government's electronic employment verification system, be mandatory for all employers? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Kylie Smith Political Opinion | Scoop.it

I agree with President Barack Obama. Businesses who employ illegal immigrants are taking jobs away from the American people. To avoid hiring illegal aliens, businesses should have to use E-Verify.

Is China an economic or military threat to the US? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

I stand with the president when it comes to international relations with China. It is hard to establish China as an economic and/or military threat.

Obama For America TV Ad: "Number One"

I loved this ad. Romney always says we need to cut government spending, even though when Mitt Romney was governor of Massachussetts, they had a state debt of $18 billion and were 47th in the nation for job creation.

Should the US federal government have bailed out General Motors and Chrysler? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

I agree with the President's standpoint on this topic - by bailing out GM and Chrysler, Obama has saved thousands of American's jobs and has saved the American auto industry.

President Obama's record on women’s issues

President Obama's record on women’s issues | Kylie Smith Political Opinion | Scoop.it

The first thing president Barack Obama passed when he was elected was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. The fact that women were not being payed equally from square one blows my mind.

Are more federal regulations on guns and ammunition needed? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

I strongly agree Barack Obama's views on gun control. More federal regulations are needed on guns and ammunition. America has the highest death rate via guns in the world. Germany is second in the world at 381 deaths due to guns. America is over 29 times that-standing at 11,127 per year.

Should all Americans have a right (be entitled) to basic health care? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Kylie Smith Political Opinion | Scoop.it

I strongly agree with the president on whether all Americans have a right to basic health care. Countries like Canada, England, Germany and many other Western European countries have universal basic health care. I dislike the direction health care providers have gone in.

Santorum: Obama "A Snob" For Wanting Everyone To Go To College

I strongly disagree with the message Rick Santorum is supporting. In America today, it is almost impossible to get a job with a decent income without a college degree. The backbone to a good job is a good public school and college education.

Should the US use military force if Iran does not dismantle its nuclear program? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

I agree with the president. I prefer peace over war, but if Iran does possess a nuclear weapon, the US military should be involved on a peace mission.

Should the wealthiest 1% of Americans be taxed more heavily? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

I agree with the Independent candidate Jill Stein - the top 1% should be taxed more heavily. She said, "Though the corporate elite are richer than ever, they are contributing less than ever to the tax base that keeps the infrastructure going that their profits rely on – schools, transportation, clean air and water, safe food, the legal system, the police, and the military..." and that is something I strongly agree with.
