We're going political!

This meme is shamelessly stolen from toosdraadloos:

1. Do you have the guts to answer these questions and re-post as "The Controversial Survey"?
What's controversial about it?

2. Would you do meth if it was legalized?

3. What's your view on abortion?
Very much pro-choice! A woman should be allowed to decide about her own life, and her own body.

4. Do you think the world would fail with a female president?
This is a bit of an absurd question... I mean - this has already happened! Both Finland and Iceland have had female presidents, and the world is still standing. *shakes head*

5. What do you think about the death penalty?
AGAINST, AGAINST, AGAINST! Who are we to decide when it's "right" to take a life? It's never, ever OK to kill another human being! And what if the person is innocent (it has happened! More than once!)? What are we supposed to do then? No, lock them up instead!

6. Do you think marijuana will be legalized?
Only for medical reasons.

7. How do you feel about pre-marital sex?
It's gooood! ;-)

8. Do you believe in God?
The Christian god? No. Nor gods as in... gods. For me, they can be sort of symbols for something. But as creating forces that decides over us? No.

9. Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
Now, it is here. But this question is to me a bit odd. It should be "should marriage be legal". When you put "same sex" into it, it's kind of discriminating. Change "same sex" with "interracial" or something similar, and taste it... How does that feel, hmm...?

10. What do you think about illegal immigration?
I think I'll just copy and past toosdraadloos's reply here, as it's my thoughts exactly:
Difficult question. I would judge every case separately. I'm quite liberal when it comes to this, but when, for example, people have committed serious (war) crimes we have to be strict and kick them out as soon as they get caught.

11. A 12 year old girl has a baby. Should she keep it?
This is a tricky question. I'm tempted to say no, as she's just a child, with the body of a child. But I don't think it's as easy as that. It would depend on a lot of things.

12. Should the alcohol age be lowered to 18?
Already is 18, unless it's spirits. I think it's fine.

13. Would you support a war in Syria?
No. I'm in general anti war, but from what I've hard of analysis, a war would just make the situation even worse.

14. How do you feel about spanking a child?
Simple: No. Nothing good has ever come from violence. Because that's what it is. I'm very black and white here. Never, ever hit a child.

15. Would you burn the flag of your country for a million dollars?
Sure, it's just a piece of cloth with a cross on it. I have no strong feelings about the flag.

16. Who, or what party, do you think you will vote for your country's next election?
Rødt (The Red Party), where I am a member. They have great environmental politics, as well as great politics when it comes to feminism, workers' rights, culture and so on. I don't know of any other party that is just as good.

17. Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?
If they do, well... That's their problem.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the questions were written by an American...

(Other than question 16 (for obvious reasons) you pretty much speak for me there)

Exactly. These questions are designed to shock or divide modern Americans.
