What is the biggest mistake of your life so far? What did you learn from it?
Dating a guy who was not a good person, and most definitely treated me wrong. I learned don't put up with someone else's shit just because you feel bad for them and think (which turns out was true) they will do some very stupid when they work out your never going to come back to them. That may make me a bitch, but it is and was not my problem anymore. He has family and friends who should have picked up that that going to happen. He didn't succeed in his attempt, though hopefully now his parents open their eyes a little.

Do you think having children is a fundamental human right? Should there should be any restrictions?
Sadly it kind of is a human right, but it there are some people who should not have kids. Some people cannot afford how many children they have (and then they and their children miss out and rely on the government) and there are also people who are abusive, neglectful and all of those other horrible kinds of people.

How do you feel about animal research and testing? Would you buy products that have been tested on animals?
Animal testing is wrong, especially when they do not get their own say in the matter and it often leads to them being harmed in some way. I hope there are no products which are tested on animals which I use. But if I found out they were I wouldn't use them or buy them again.

If you could change or create a new law, what would it be, and why?
I would make everything the choice of the individual. Including things like gay marriage and abortion. So it is up to the individuals whether they want to get married or have the abortion. This would also mean that the people providing such services would be able to choose if they provided these services (they would have to have an official stance, so they cannot discriminate).

Is it appropriate for governments to spend so much money on defense and weapons? How much is too much?
I do think it's appropriate for governments to spend money on protecting the people of the country and ensuring the troops which are doing so are well trained and have adequate equipment. However, I do not see the value in a plane being worth $500 million dollars. Though there are a lot of things which I do not see the value of. Like how is a loaf of bread worth $5 when it costs them about a dollar to make it.
I wish the price of "things" would stop increasing and decrease a little, or they should pay people more so that they can afford their mortgages, pay their electricity bills and all of those other things which seem to be increasing at astronomical rates.
