I was raised in a union household; Dad was an active member in the local Democratic Party and loved to talk history and politics. I was not interested while I was in college and raising my daughter, but stayed at least aware of my opinions and major issues. Now I am a near-junkie like Dad was, and my husband shares my views, but not the intensity.
Social: Separation of Church and State is #1. If we could get churches out of politics, we could get so much necessary work done.
Fiscal: Believe in the safety net, livable minimum wage, and low deficits, progressive taxes, no billionaire corporations or individuals.
Foreign Policy: Diplomacy, consensus, compromise, United Nations/NATO. Stay out of religious fights (like Israel) and promote women's issues, public health, and wise use of resources/environment.
