Ronald Reagan, Former US president

This is a matter of vital importance to the public safety ... While we recognize that assault-weapon legislation will not stop all assault-weapon crime, statistics prove that we can dry up the supply of these guns, making them less accessible to criminals.

John McCain,

When less than 1% of Americans are volunteering to join the military, we should welcome all those who are willing and able to serve our country. Any member of the military who meets the medical and readiness standards should be allowed to serve -- including those who are transgender.

Charlton Heston, Actor and political activist

You could say that the paparazzi and the tabloids are sort of the 'assault weapons' of the First Amendment. They're ugly, a lot of people don't like them, but they're protected by the First Amendment - just as 'assault weapons' are protected by the Second Amendment.

Ted Kennedy, American politician

It [universal health care] has never been merely a question of policy; it goes to the heart of my belief in a just society.

Ronald Reagan, Former US president

One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine.

Bill Clinton,

disagrees Electronic voting
Until we get this [electronic voting] straightened out, every state should go to some sort of paper ballot system.

Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin (400 companies)

Yet, in their zeal for chasing the illusion of a drug-free world, governments have poured billions into tough law enforcement that did nothing to reduce drug supply or demand, or take control from the criminal organisations in charge of the global drug trade.

Russell Brand, British comedian, actor, and author

Nobody at all is helped by drugs being made illegal, unless of course there is a conspiracy to marginalise, condemn and persecute disenfranchised members of our global community. I'd hate to think that was the situation - that certain countries didn't matter, that certain classes didn't matter, that certain races didn't matter. So unless that's the situation, there's literally no reason to p... See More

Jimmy Carter, American politician, 39th president of the united states (in office from 1977 to 1981)

disagrees Electronic voting
Technology is being introduced into electoral processes to promote efficiency, but it also moves voting and counting into the unobservable digital realm. In the Netherlands, electronic voting has been abandoned amid concerns about foreign interference in elections. During the 2016 presidential campaign in the United States, Russian hackers broke into the Democratic National Committee’s email syste... See More

Tony Blair, Prime Minister of the UK from 1997 to 2007

Does it instil respect and understanding, an open mind, open to inquiry, at ease with diversity, ready to learn more about other faiths? Or does it create a closed mind, a mindset vulnerable to fear, distrust and coercion, a world where “error has no rights”? In short is it good religion or bad religion? I believe the overwhelming number of our faith schools fall into the first category. They p... See More

Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin (400 companies)

I think it [Bitcoin] is working. There will be other currencies like it that may be even better, but in the meantime there's a big industry around bitcoin. You know, people have made fortunes out of bitcoin, some people have lost money out of bitcoin.

Policies like these can help people struggling just to survive and allow them to get on their feet, be entrepreneurial and be more creative.

Hillary Clinton, US presidential candidate

We can’t fall into the trap set up by the gun lobby that says if you cannot stop every shooting you shouldn’t try to stop any

Vladimir Putin,

The warming, it had already started by the 1930s. That's when there were no such anthropological factors, such emissions, and the warming had already started.

Hillary Clinton, US presidential candidate

We talk about drought-resistant seeds, and I’ve promoted them all over Africa. By definition, they have been engineered to be drought-resistant, I mean that’s the beauty of them. Maybe somebody can get their harvest done and not starve, and maybe there’s some left over to sell.

Lady Brady,

disagrees Brexit
British families, consumers and businesses are stronger in than out … Europe is our largest trading partner … European trade supports millions of British jobs … And a bigger market has driven down prices for consumers.

Ian Botham, Former England Test cricketer

agrees Brexit
It is insane that because we are in the EU we do not have the freedom to reach our own agreements to trade freely with … emerging powers like China … We have lost the right to govern ourselves, to make our own laws and to choose who comes here.

Michael Caine, English actor and author.

agrees Brexit
You cannot be dictated to by thousands of faceless civil servants who make these rules … we buy more from them than we sell to them [the EU] … I sort of feel certain we should come out.

Ann Widdecombe, Former Conservative Member of Parliament, President of Christians for Britain

agrees Brexit
It is no good thinking we can come out [of the EU] at a later stage. There will not be that opportunity … We are certainly not self-governing for as long as we are in Europe.

The European project is fundamentally flawed … If I were British, which I’m not, I’d vote to leave. You have lost your sovereignty.
