Why do you want to get involved in Government Service?
I totally respect individuals and their absolute right to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness as long as no force or fraud to other individuals is involved. I am as frugal and fiscally responsible as a person can get; and I will watch your hard earned money like a hawk! I have vast working experience in both the public and private sector; which includes health care and nutrition; sales, service and finance; insurance; fundraising; and volunteer work. I enjoy and embrace diversity.I detest violence and force,and support the use of diplomacy, trade and education to solve the worlds problems. I want to go to Washington to bring honesty,integrity and true citizen involvement back to governement. We need to rethink and revise the way government operates in America today. I think term limits are advisable as the money and power are corrupting even the most humble and decent people who attempt to serve our Country!
What is the most crucial issue facing the office you are seeking, and how would you address it?
The massive growth of government spending, and unlimited power handed over to the executive branch by the current lazy,apethetic,lapdog congress.I would work to halt the spending spree,balance the buddget, end the Patriot Act, wiretapping ,and the assorted other assaults on our civil liberties. I want to restore morality and the rule of law in America. The departure from our founding principles of equal treatment under the law, no arbitrary power,and no cruelty is mind-boggling and sickening to me. Do unto others as you want them to do unto you!
If elected, what would be your chief priorities?
End the present military occupations and the "war on Terrorism", which in reality increases terrorist attacks and hostility towards America. Adopt and practice a policy of non-intervention in the political affairs of nations worldwide and bring our troops home to be used for legitimate national Defense only. Drastically Reduce taxes and Government spending, and Reduce the size,cost,scope and power of the federal government.Let the American people keep their own money and run their own life! End the War on Drugs, which is actually a war on the personal freedom of peaceful,consenting adults; causes crime; is wasting billions of tax dollars and promotes illicit drug usage among youth.
