    Best answer: You are definitely a leftist (welcome to the club, my friend). I am with you on just about all those issues, I am also tolerant of some gun ownership with limits--sorry, no howitzers or RPGs. No, you are not a communist--they want to "democratize" society by using the state acting in the name of the people, all that did was empower those running the state making the state all powerful.

    I would be considered a democratic socialist because I would go a step farther on your list and would push for large corporations to be majority employee-owned (ESOP-with teeth) and would favor converting many smaller businesses and governmental services into worker and even community cooperatives. All that to democratized wealth, not just income. Of course, I have no problem with family owned businesses and sole proprietorships--would love to see them work in cooperation with the others, especially at the local levels. Entrepreneurship and democratic socialism should be natural allies. They are in other parts of the world, especially places in Europe.

    I would also toss in some environmental reclamation and protections as well. I hope that helps.

    Best answer: Tax cuts. Nothing causes more poverty than a government intent on taxing and regulating the people who are producing. Taxes are the origin of poverty. Taxes are the parents of poverty. If you cut taxes enough, it will cost pennies to get a loaf of bread rather than dollars. If you cut taxes enough, rent will decrease, salaries will rise, and business will flourish and create more and more and more jobs. CAPITALISM is the remedy for poverty.

    The 1960's was a very disturbing time period to say the least... There's a good chance you already know this but the CIA did do secret drug experiments on people. Agents would do things like put LSD into people's drinks at a bar and observe the results and stuff like that. Project MKUltra lasted 14 years too before people found out. But what was far more disturbing is how LSD "came out of nowhere" around that time. LSD could only be made in a lab, and it's not like anyone except for chemists with the right knowledge and equipment could make it. But millions of tablets were made and distributed across America. If it wasn't the U.S. government who caused this there's no other real explanation. This was the same period hippies and liberalism came about. It's almost like the government wanted to create this ideology. Over 90 percent of people were against desegregation in the early 50's, then a massive project went to change public opinion. Why did the U.S. do all of this?
