I lean left by US standards but probably right by world standards. Depends on the issue: Hard left:LGBT rights and transgender rights. Left:Voting rights, economic matters/unions, police brutality/minority relations, contraception access. Transportation access. Religious freedom-rights of Muslims and atheists etc. Freedom of speech. Middle:Gun rights. I prefer an assault weapons ban. Pistols only after background checks. Drugs-medical marijuana only. Immigration. Right:Environment and capital punishment in some cases. I vote Democratic.
