Should gay marriage be legal? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Opinions on Current Issues | Scoop.it

I agree with Gary Johnson. A person should be able to marry someone of the same sex if they so choose. The government should not have to make a definition for marriage. It should be up to individuals.

Should the United States build additional nuclear plants? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should the United States build additional nuclear plants? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Opinions on Current Issues | Scoop.it

In terms of new energy sources, nuclear power has been discussed for a while. Virgil Goode, a third party candidate, believes that the U.S. should create its own alternative resources. He also supports the utilization of nuclear power, though not as strongly as Obama or Romney. I believe that America can create its own resources, but I feel that we should try other sources befor going after nuclear energy.

Should all Americans have a right (be entitled) to basic health care? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Opinions on Current Issues | Scoop.it

After considering both Obama and Romney's viewpoints on healthcare, I agree with Obama. At this point, all Americans should have the right to basic healthcare. They should not have to go bankrupt just because they are not paying medical bills.
