Up or Down

FOX Fan wants to know YOUR opinion on the hottest issues.

Do you think marijuana drug laws are becoming too lax? Tell us if you give this an Up or Down vote.
NASA Misspending YOUR Money?
Several government auditors have testified that NASA has made little progress in accounting for how it spends taxpayer money. With a $100 billion plan to put humans back on the Moon by 2018, many lawmakers fear the agency's finances are so jumbled that there is great risk for fraud and abuse.

Should NASA scrap the program until they fix their accounting woes? Tell us if you give this an Up or Down vote.
Should Bush Bring 20K Troops Home For Christmas?
Sen. John Kerry says yes if the December parliamentary elections in Iraq are successful.

Halloween Curfew for Sex Offenders
New Jersey sex offenders who face supervision under Megan's Law will be confined to their homes after 7p.m. on Halloween, under orders NOT to answer the door when trick-or-treaters come calling.

How would you vote on a law banning animal performances — Up or Down?
Protect Gun Industry From Lawsuits?
Congress has passed a bill that protects the firearm manufacturers and retailers from massive crime-victim lawsuits. If signed by President Bush as expected, six pending lawsuits by local governments will be dismissed.

Do you agree with Congress’s decision? Tell us if you give bill an Up or Down vote.
Extend Paid Maternity Leave?
A government proposal in England would increase paternity leave to six months for new dads, allowing parents to share the 12 months of leave currently offered to mothers. In the U.S., paid maternity/paternity leave is NOT federal law.

Tell us if you give this proposal an Up or Down vote in the U.S. and why.
Illegal Immigration Solution?
Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (TX-R) has introduced a new bill that would give state and local law enforcement the power to detain, arrest and prosecute illegal immigrants in Texas. Currently, local police can only report the matter to federal authorities.

Do you think giving local authorities more power will help cure this national security problem? Tell us if you give this an Up or Down vote and why.

Tell us if you give tougher bankruptcy laws an Up or Down vote.
