Sorry endisnighe, I just wanted to create a counter balance to your thread, give the left a chance ya know? If it makes you happy I'm not running for
Now back to business. Here would be my platform.
is a woman's right to chose and the government should have no say in the matter.
should be immediately scrapped and allow employers to employ whoever they believe is qualified not based on race.
is a private choice between two people and we should not make laws in regards to who can marry whoever they want.
should be allowed but not forced on people. We should also allow religious scenes on public property as long as religion is not
forced upon anyone it is okay.
should be abolished because it is a serious infringement on a persons civil liberties and a right to life.
Three Strikes laws
should immediately be repealed. Government should not set a predetermined sentence, it should be left up to the jury.
should not be infringed upon, period. All people who are not violent criminals should have a right to a non-automatic weapon without
any permits. For automatic weapons you should have to visit a psychiatrist and have a full evaluation.
should be privatized and taken away from the government and corporations. Government should create a voucher program for poor
citizens with public investment into these accounts, these people with vouchers should have to visit charity hospitals only. All other people should
pay out of pocket to visit a doctor and only have disaster insurance.
should be optional. All people should be allowed to opt in or out of the system and the government should not be allowed to
touch the social security account for any reason.
should be privatized and create a voucher system for all children.
Protecting the environment
should not be strongly enforced by the federal government. We should return all public land over to the states and
let them decide what to do with them. Government should also not sign any environmental mandates that will harm our economy. We should continue to
preserve endangered animals, endangered lands and reduce pollution.
should be legal, but only for safe drugs such as marijuana. The drinking age should be lowered to 18 along with the age of smoking
should work alongside government to provide welfare to the citizens. Government should hand welfare over to churches in rural
areas while maintaining government control of welfare in urban areas. This would create full inclusiveness.
should be steeper. We were very successful in the 'golden days' and this could be due to a 90% income tax on the
wealthy. The income tax on the wealthy($10,000,000+) to 75% and lower income taxes on the middle class and poor. Increase the corporate tax to a
progressive 25 - 50%. Eliminate the payroll tax. Create a national Value Added Tax of 10%.
is a good thing, as long as it's legal, and should be encouraged because it helps our economy and creates more diplomacy.
should be eliminated and we should establish a 15% tariff tax on all imported goods. We should only trade with other high income
countries and it should only be countries with a GDP (PPP) Per Capita of over $20,000. We should exit the WTO, NAFTA and all other international trade
should be severely cut to 1% GDP which would be around $150,000,000,000. We should bring home all troops and stop all foreign
military bases. Stop supplying any country with funds for their military while still selling military equipment and weapons. Eliminate the draft as
unconstitutional as it is a form of slavery and only encourages unconstitutional wars.
should not be allowed from corporations or any special interests. Only from private citizens which shall remain anonymous.
is constitutionally illegal and should be repealed immediately along with the pursuit of taking all criminals who authorized the
use of the Patriot Act. Government should not spy on any of its law abiding citizens without a warrant.
is illegal because it supersides our national soveriengty. We should exit the UN and all other international organizations
immediately and phase out all foreign aid except from private individuals.
So based upon my platform would you vote for me?
