Strictly Limited Government with fewer laws and government programs would be good for America........
Three Legislative Priorities
*End the Current War On Terror, bring home all the troops worldwide, and adopt a foreign policy of non-intervention in the political affairs of other countries. Use the Military to Defend American soil.. Limit the Power of Government officials and restore the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Treat all people fairly and humanely. Torture, cruelty and arbitrary imprisonment are wrong and serve no useful purpose , ANYWHERE. Advance world peace with respect, friendship and Trade. Absolutely NO DRAFT in America, ever.
* Drastically Cut taxes and Government Spending.
Down-size DC. Let Americans shop for what they want and pay for what they get in the marketplace.
*End Drug Prohibition, which like alcohol prohibition breeds violence and crime, drains tax dollars, and jails peaceful, productive consenting adults. In other words, Restore private property rights, individual liberty and personal Responsibility . Al;so, No bans on smoking, eating, fats,gambling, sex, seat belts, helmets or anything else that restrains an adult from making his own choices, good or bad, for himself.
On Making healthcare more affordable and accessible:
Government should get out of the healthcare business altogether. The Governments entry into financing and regulating healthcare in the 60ties is what has caused the crisis of cost and availability of services that we have today. The answer is more people paying for their basic health care with their own money, which will give people the incentive to shop for better prices and not use the system unnecessarily, which will in turn reduce costs. Third Party Payers always raise costs. Insurance was designed originally to take care of catastrophes, and as we departed from that basic use, and started using insurance for general maintenance of our bodies, the problems with healthcare began.Government is the least efficient and most expensive way to do almost anything. A free market in healthcare could solve America's health care problems.
How can we solve our nations energy problems and reduce consumption of fossil fuels?
Where the free market is allowed to work , some genius will invent a new car that can run without oil or fossil fuels of any kind. History has shown that where there is Freedom, and a high potential for Profit in the marketplace the regular people enjoy more and better goods and services,more disposable income and leisure time, and greater personal happiness! High taxes and heavy government regulations decrease ones incentive to produce new and innovative goods and services. The government should cease stifling business and thank their lucky stars that we have brilliant minds in America that can tap new forms of energy and help preserve our natural resources. Freedom Works!
How do we get out of Iraq?
I am not a military General, However, I think our presence is the region is increasing the violence and suicide bombings. No matter what our intentions may be , we are making matters worse in Iraq, and more and more people are being savagely killed and maimed. I think we should get out now and reduce everyones losses. I would not send more troops, and during the exit, I would down-play the presence of the ones that are there. Many people are threatened and intimidated by the presence of police, and when people are scared they react in all all kinds of ways, some of which are very Bad.
How do we Make the nation more secure?
I would make our nation more secure by limiting the Power and authority of the Government, as I think we are losing our Freedom from within, and this is a much greater threat to America and our way of life than "foreign enemies." Our present government is way out of control and has" crossed the line" , and we the people need to rein them back in ! First and foremost, Americans should never give up their natural right to keep and bear arms, which is in reality the right to self-defense against individual criminals or a tyrannical state. More guns in the hands of our citizens mean less crime. Government perpetrates many more acts of violence against its own citizens , and the people of the world, than basic thugs could ever imagine in their wildest dreams! Our government and national defense failed us miserably on 9-11. Had the pilots and passengers been armed and the cockpit door secured the whole scenario might have been easily avoided.
People who give up freedom for safety and security wind up with neither... Ignore your Rights and they'll go Away!!
