What is your opinion the current election age, that is having to be at least
35 to become president, should it be lowered, raised or stay the same?

Age should not be a barrier, however to change that age would require a constitutional amendment which would be a waste of time and energy to pursue. Our population is getting older and I think it is unlikely that they would vote for anyone younger than 35. I would make the drinking age 18 which is consistent with the voting age and I would attempt to repeal all laws that discriminate against adults under the age of 21.



What are your thoughts on the requirement that one must be born in the
United States to become president, should it be changed or stay the
same?

Logic tells me it shouldn't make any difference, however I have this fear of a "Manchurian Candidate" so I would not change this requirement. John McCain's POW captivity is sufficient reason for me to vote against him for the same reason.

Greetings df1,

I have several questions to build my understanding of your positions.

1. How would you deal with humanitarian crisis in the rest of world?
2. How would you respond to acts of genocide and unbalanced imperial aggression between foreign nations?
3. How do you figure the federal expenditure without a supply of income tax?
4. What is your policy on nuclear inventory?
5. Your stance on the growing issue of teen pregnancy?

Apologies if I overlooked such questions.

df1,

I find it amazing that I agree with you on almost all of your positions, despite your self-imposed "socialist" affiliation.

One major, major concern I have with you is national security. Do you really think the War on Terror is a joke? Do you think 9/11 was an inside job? Will you reduce or eliminate Pentagon spending?

What do you see as the future of our military? Of our nuclear weapons?

I've always been a political radical, but I've never been a pure ideologue of any flavor. My platform includes significant socialist & libertarian elements all of which I believe are in the best interest of the American people. If I had declared as a Libertarian some one would be talking about my socialist programs in terms of my self imposed "Libertarian" affiliation. A lot of folks claim that they vote for the man & the issues, not the party. My candidacy will surely test those assertions.



Do you really think the War on Terror is a joke?

The War on Terror is one of those things that I laugh about to keep from crying, but it is no joke. It is a fraud being perpetrated on the American people by globalists both within & without our government. This fraud is designed to quash dissent and marginalize critics by creating an environment where those that do not agree can easily be painted as terrorist sympathizers or the like.



Do you think 9/11 was an inside job?

I'm with Ron Paul, the 9/11 commission failed to do a complete and through investigation which resulted in their raising more questions than were answered, so I am open the possibility of an inside job. The appointment of this commission leaves a foul taste in my mouth, because I believe this investigation was the constitutional duty of the congress using its full investigative powers to subpena, as well as to compel those in government to testify under oath. Both political parties shirked their responsibilities and continue to do so.



Will you reduce or eliminate Pentagon spending?

As I stated in my candidate declaration statement, "I will immediately suspend all foreign aide, begin the withdrawal of American troops from all foreign nations, terminate all mutual defense treaties and resign from the United Nations.". Without a doubt these things will result in a dramatic reduction in military spending without sacrificing our national security.



What do you see as the future of our military?

Of our nuclear weapons?

Our military should always be second to none in terms of both our conventional and nuclear weapons technology. We also need to take better care of troops before, during and after their fighting is over. Technical superiority is of minor benefit without high quality troops operating those weapons that are committed to our defense mind, body and soul.

1. How would you deal with humanitarian crisis in the rest of world?

We will respond with short term assistance in the aftermath of major disasters that consists of basic food, clothing, shelter and medical care to the population. This assistance should not last more than several months and we will not interpret every minor inconvenience as a major disaster. Major disasters are not a common occurrence and neither will our aide be a common occurrence.



2. How would you respond to acts of genocide and unbalanced imperial aggression between foreign nations?

We should not be the worlds police force. As stated in my candidate declaration, "Most threats from outside our great nation stem from an long running interventionist & imperialist foreign policy that interferes in the internal affairs of other nations. My foreign policy will be based on establishing an America that is at peace with the world and provides for the defense of the lives, liberty, and property of the American people on American soil from foreign attack.". Previous American governments have been an unseen hand in causing these types of foreign genocide and aggression. America will not be the cause of these things under my administration.



3. How do you figure the federal expenditure without a supply of income tax?

Congress will need to make some tough decisions on what we fund and what we do not fund. This will certainly not be business as usual for the congress, but unlike the current system where the interest rates, the money supply and the printing of money is controlled by bankers, under my administration the congress will have the power to control these things in the interest of the American people. If they don't get it right, the buck stops with the President and I will not hesitate to use the veto and the bully pulpit to publicly hold their feet to the fire. And if I don't get it right, the people can vote my butt out of office too, which is something that the American people can't do with the bankers running things.



4. What is your policy on nuclear inventory?

The nuclear Pandora's Box was opened many years ago and we are stuck with it whether we like it or not. We need to maintain a nuclear inventory that is second none in terms of destructive power and technical superiority. The doctrine of Mutually Assured Destruction is a much more powerful deterrent when the destruction of our opponents is more assured than our own destruction.



5. Your stance on the growing issue of teen pregnancy?

We have a wide variety of birth control methods already available to teens and they are well promoted in sex education classes. Fast tracking legislation to make morning after pills available over the counter will help reduce teen pregnancy. However the role of mom & dad should be greater than the role of government in this matter.

Like all socialists, you are nothing but an arrogant and empty primadonna. The ruination of the world, the taker of all, you are the curse of mankind, your existence is nothing but an obscene waste of food and air. I abhor the day your parents elected not to abort you. I have devoted a lifetime to destroying whatever you corrupt and live only in the hope of seeing a day when socialism, the excrement of mankind is swept away in the urine of your own dirt.

Upon initial inspection, all your policies seem to be heading that way.

Any comments?

Your plan to reduce teen pregnancy, is to provide more accessible contraception? Ofcourse you are going to reduce the numbers, but that was not the primary concern in my question. Do you have any stance on the lack of moral fiber that is prevalent in our nation? Surely we can better combat such issues by addressing the root cause? Is that not a concern of the government?

National Socialism, df1?

Nope, like my avatar says "Socialist Workers Party".

Since entering this campaign many inaccurate & unflattering labels have been applied to me, yours is just one more. (shrug)

Excepting for politicians, I don't agree that we have a lack of moral fiber in the US.

Chastity belts went out years ago. My administration has no intention of bringing them back.

Just to be clear, I was talking about the ideology in your platform. It's decisively nationalistic.

Our so called leaders are corrupt bags of wind and are in no way a reflection of the largely good & decent American people. We do not deserve the kind of government we are receiving. It take exception to your remark.

I see socialism as tool, not a goal. I support socialize health care, education, a Department of the Treasury taking over the role of the FED from the bankers and forcing the media corporation to relinquish control of the local broadcast channels. Also I want the government to take control of our natural resources from the energy barons that are ripping off the American people. People should not ruled, but let their be no doubt that I am willing to bring the powers of heaven and earth to bear on corporations that are screwing the people.


socialism is a tool used for complete government control over the individual. government control over public education leads to the current public brainwashing facilities we currently have that drones out nothing but bafoons ripe for manipulation in our liberal socialist colleges. all you're doing is taking the profit/privitalization away from private business and seizing it in the name of the US federal government.. a simple power transfer all the while the people continue to get screwed by politicans who will now have complete control over every aspect of the US and her citizens. your ideas will cripple the US economy and KILL FOREIGN INVESTMENT.

dont forget all your little plans comes at the cost of the US tax payer, now I may have missed it but whats your tax plan? you claim you want the IRS and the 16th abolished but I find that hard to believe coming from a socialist.
