68. My positions...
I've posted my positions many times before, but here they are again:

I am for protecting the environment from plunder for profit. I support gay marriage. I support the right of women to have an abortion for any reason whatsoever. I support the right of people to unionize or otherwise organize to seek protection against oppression. I support affirmative action. I also firmly support the right of the individual to have the right to keep and bear arms, which makes me atypical among progressives.
