I’m an undecided voter (part 1 of 2):

• I believe that condoms should be made freely available to teenagers, BUT I also believe the instructions on those condoms should be written English, in our official language.

• I’m in favor of saving short-eared owls from extinction, BUT I also support a constitutional amendment banning gay short-eared owl marriage.

• I believe that if a woman is raped, she should be forced to carry the fetus to full term, BUT I also believe that a woman should be allowed own an AK-47 to protect herself against government-mandated newborns.

• I believe that government is far too large, BUT I also want a government job someday.

• I think gas prices should reflect the true costs of acquiring that gas and maintaining the roads, BUT I also think that public transportation is a waste of everyone’s time and money.
