Presidential Election 2020 Political Courage Test
|Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?|
|Let me state, FOR THE RECORD, that I am 100% AGAINST all FORCED abortions. Furthermore, let me say , ANYONE forcing a WOMAN to undergo an ABORTON, against her will, should be PERSECUTED. I FIRMLY BELIEVE that every fetus MUST be REQUIRED to give it's FULL CONSENT before being born. Until such time we can FULLY INFORM said fetuses, of what is in store for them, ABORTION is really, one of the few 'OPT OUTs' for those fetusi who choose against BIRTH. For the sake of FUTURE fetuses, we MUST protect , safe , legal ABORTIONs for all. Amen.|
|In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?|
|Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?|
|It is a FREE pony? program. It costs NOTHING. (There may be some inciDENTAL administrative costs involving such entitlements as the Universal Pony Health Care System, Social Pony Security , and the Federal Hay Stamp Program.) Americans are chomping at the bit, to HAPPILY SURRENDER financial autonomy. So 'pony up', these GREATLY increased FREEDOM , LIBERTY , and 'LOVE AMERICA ' Assesments. These increases in your FREEDOM are required to giddyup the ABSOLUTELY FREE FEDERAL PONY IDENTIFICATION PROGRAM (AFPIP). By taxing the 1% at 1% , and taxing the 99% at 99%, we create a MORE FAIR and EQUITABLE America.|
|Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?|
|The road to ponytopia will not be easy. The transition times will be confusing and frightening. Not all of us will make it. There will be sacrifices. Human sacrifices. The transition to a full pony based economy will not be an easy one . There will be some... grumblers... pony haters, ....in the beginning. There will be those that scream, " Big Government. " These malcontents will be dealt with swiftly and harshly. Many pundits may argue that it would never work. They will be sent to the work camps to be shown otherwise.|
|Do you support increasing defense spending?|
|I promise to engage in hostilities only with powers I deem to be a real and immediate danger to our peace loving nation. Therefor, I have ordered the Strategic Space Horse to begin the bombing of Narnia in five minutes. We will not stop until we have destroyed Middle Earth. Please pray for our fearsome flying unmanned killer robot pony drones as they reign fire and death upon our subhuman enemy and innocent wedding parties. May our brave soldiers not be afflicted by carpal tunnel when conducting long distance atrocities, or terrible nightmares from the horror they must inflict. Amen.|
|Do you support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth?|
|Do you support lowering corporate taxes as a means of promoting economic growth?|
|Once we have universal pony ownership, we will have equity in the ponies we own. Once we have universal pony equity , we'll be able to borrow against it. Once we've established pony-based debt we can create pony credit default swap and pony junk bond markets and such. We are going to have a HUGE pony bubble in the economy. We all know that bubbles are great in the economy, at the time it is occurring, all cylinders firing, everybody making money . THIS bubble however is going to be REINFORCED and will be STEEL BELTED and last FOREVER .|
|Do you support requiring states to adopt federal education standards?|
|There is something mesmorizing about the sound produced by a classroom of children repeating in unison the rote memorization of a string of words . The sound of compliance. The sound of commitment to unquestioned ideals . The sound of consent . Something akin to 5,000 zombies moaning " BRaiNNNNNSSSnnnnn" all together. " Today, class, we study, 'The War on Narnia. 'America's first interdimensional warfare. The president knew if we didn't fight them there we would have to fight them here ." It was very similar to his rational for going back in time and fighting the nazis...|
|Do you support government funding for the development of renewable energy (e.g. solar, wind, geo-thermal)?|
|Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?|
|America's FUTURE DEPENDS on it's ABILITY to HARNESS it's BIGGEST environMENTAL challenge. America's TRANSITION , from fossil fuels to PONYTOPIA , requires forward thinking INNOVATION. VISUALISE... a vision of SECURE , modern , UNDERGROUND FACILITIES , dotting the countryside , HUMMING along, producing safe , CLEAN , efficient , CARBON NEUTRAL energy. We will harness the AWESOME power of ZOMBIES , by UTILIZING the latest GIANT , HAMSTER-wheel , turbine TECHNOLOGY. This will ASSURE America's energy FUTURE . The TECHNOLOGY is INFALLIBLE . There has NEVER been an accidental ZOMBIE release , in a FEMA licensed Zombie Turbine Facility.|
|Do you generally support gun-control legislation?|
|VERMIN SUPREME IS COMING TO TAKE AWAY YOUR GUNS! Then he us coming back to give you better ones! Happiness is a warm gun(Bang bang, shoot shoot) Happiness is a warm gun(Bang bang, shoot shoot) When I hold you in my arms(Oh yeah) And I feel my finger on your trigger(Ooooh yeah) I know nobody can do me no harm(Ooooh yeah) [ Friendly fire is happy fire.] Because happiness is a warm gun mama [ Mind control, not gun control. ] (Bang bang, shoot shoot) Happiness is a warm gun, yes it is|
|Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare")?|
|In order to bring it into line, with US policy on infrastructure, DEFERRED MAINTENANCE , will be America's official HEALTH CARE policy. MANDATORY TOOTHBRUSHING LAWS will keep America SMILING. Unwell American's will be placed in a DOG CARRIER, strapped to the roof of MITT ROMNEY's, car, and driven to Canada. My Universal Elf Care Plan will ASSURE that all good little girls and boys will continue to receive annual elf-made PRESENTS. Mine is the only HEALTH CARE that includes the cost of RAISING THE DEAD. They say LAUGHTER IS the BEST MEDICINE. So LAUGH yourself well, you sick [...].|
|Do you support the construction of a wall along the Mexican border?|
|Do you support requiring immigrants who are unlawfully present to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?|
|Altho the promised weather domes were never completed, the twenty five foot high portions that were did act as a dandy wall with which to repel invaders. It also did a handy job of keeping citizens in, for purposes of safety. Otherwise, if you turned up missing you might not be added to the safety statistics . There was a very stark choice to make. Would it be the mass execution of some 299,7000+ Americans in order to achieve proper pony/ human parity ... or something else. It is certainly true that such a mass execution would create jobs. ...|
|Should the United States use military force to prevent governments hostile to the U.S. from possessing a weapon of mass destruction (for example: nuclear, biological, chemical)?|
|Do you support reducing military intervention in Middle East conflicts?|
|" Remember,'' he shouted, "Our enemy is not human !!" " Our enemies today, are all ready dead!! " You are here today because you are the best human pony hybrids that this country has ever known." "Soldier, if you see your grandmother out there today, what are you going to do?" "Kill her, sir" "I can't hear YOU." "KILL HER SIR." "and if you see your sister here today? What will you do?" "KILL HER, sir." Why these men had volunteered to have their own human bottom parts surgically removed and be attached to pony bodies was anybody's guess...|
|Do you generally support removing barriers to international trade (for example: tariffs, quotas, etc.)?|
|The switch to a Pony Based Economy will revolutionize the way America does business. Ponies create American jobs. Ponies are a green transportation solution. Ponies produce usable methane gas. Ponies lower our dependance on foreign oil. Ponies create an abundant source of pony based fertilizer. Ponies are a viable currency for goods and services. Ponies have little tiny carbon hoof prints. Ponies are a renewable resource. Ponies are nice. Ponies are recyclable. Ponies are cute. Ponies are delicious. Ponies are the future. In summation , 1. Free Ponies for everyone. 2. No new taxes. 3. Economic prosperity for all.|
