The thing I hate about these is what they leave out.
If it was honest, it would have better answers…
I Side With Questions:
What is your stance on abortion?
Between a patient and her doctor. Government should have no role, in
forcing somebody to have a child… which could result in adverse
health effects upto and including death to the mother.
This is much more urgent if the patient is a mother with children, who
are dependent on her for their care.
Do you support the legalization of same sex marriage?
Marriage is a legal contract, nothing more. You have a right to
contract. However, this has nothing to do with love. It’s about
designating property rights, which can be done absent the involvement
with religious institutions…
Should the government continue to fund Planned Parenthood?
Like any health service, government may fund it, and the private
sector can compete with it by offering health services to specific
markets and demands.
Should gay couples have the same adoption rights as straight couples?
The adoption process should not favor any individual or group over any other.
Should a business be able to deny service to a customer if the request
conflicts with the owner’s religious beliefs?
As long as the services offered, are not limited, I see no reason why
not. And if they are limited, then the market should step in to
provide such services for the disaffected groups.
That is just a business catering to it’s customers… Like any other.
Should health insurance providers be required to offer free birth control?
They can offer it or not offer it, like any other service in the marketplace.
Should “gender identity” be added to anti-discrimination laws?
Discrimination is subjective. Violence is not. As long as no violence
is being perpetrated against anyone. Again, the consumer can vote with
their money. As far as the workplace, any disruptive behavior, can
lead to termination… especially in “at will” employment.
Do you support the death penalty?
No. Lawyers, even judges can argue fact itself, and rule out evidence
pre-trial. Until the juries are empowered to hold unethical judges and
lawyers accountable for illegal, jury rigging, and jurisdiction
shopping, and they play a role in deciding the facts of the case,
pre-trial, to rein in unethical prosecutors… I say NO to the death
Should the government support a separation of church and state by
removing references to God on money, federal buildings, and national
Retroactive censorship denies our history, and erases the sacrifices
of the victimized, and exonerates the guilty. Any new references can
be decided in current day. Let the past be the past, so we can learn
the right lessons from it.
Should terminally ill patients be allowed to end their lives via
If they are deemed in a state to state their will and consent. Yes.
Should the military allow women to serve in combat roles?
Infantry no, physical fitness and endurance should be the same
regardless… If they can pass the same physical standards as men.
Yes. But until we see a mass of women who meet the same physical
standards, to install incapable people into a unit where the weakest
link can endanger you, and your fellow soldiers. I say no.
Should businesses be required to have women on their board of directors?
Required? No. Competency should always be the primary, if not only
factor. We have had women CEO’s. If they are capable, they can make
their own opportunities, as they already have.
Should states be allowed to display the Confederate flag on government
Yes. We can’t erase history. Just like we can’t erase the fact that
Southern Democrats refused to enact lynching laws for decades, created
the KKK, and that many of these same Democrats rounded up,
incarcerated, tortured and killed, hundreds of thousands of Black and
Non-White Americans, and white Americans over time. Embrace it all,
warts and all…
That is America… too…
Should the government increase environmental regulations to prevent
What is Climate Change? (What is Global Warming?, Global Dimming? Are
they all the same, or different?) What is the alternative to Climate
Change? Climate always changes. You can’t preordain nature. Can we
create incentives to clean up polluted sites, and restrict actual
pollution from big corporate polluters that endanger life and
ecosystems where they are not held liable for the monetary damage they
are inflicting on a given community, yes! But it seems that the
offered solution of taxing and regulating the RIGHT TO POLLUTE, has
given corporations not just an out, but an incentive TO pollute! This
needs to be changed…
Do you support the use of hydraulic fracking to extract oil and
natural gas resources?
No. We don’t even know, nor do companies have to disclose what
chemicals toxic, and non-toxic, that are being injected into the base
of the Earth, to disrupt the soil, and it’s effect on the water table,
and drinking water… Until this is fully investigated and disclosed,
Fracking, should be banned, without question.
Should the U.S. expand offshore oil drilling?
We have oil resources equivalent to Saudi Arabia on the North Slope of
Alaska, alone. Let alone oil reserves in the United States. Domestic
first. Let’s create American jobs, and keep those jobs in America.
Should the government give tax credits and subsidies to the wind power industry?
Let the free market decide. If Millionaires and Billionaires believe
in it, let them invest in it, accordingly.
Should the government raise the federal minimum wage?
The minimum wage is a red herring. Until you eliminate inflation, all
you are doing is taxing on top of another tax, retroactively, after
Should all welfare recipients be tested for drugs?
There should be no indiscriminate drug testing.
If so, let those who took any benefit from government, including
stimulus money, or corporate tax breaks, to be tested, just the same.
Should the government make cuts to public spending in order to reduce
the national debt?
Red herring. The government can print it’s own money, tax free, and
pay back the debt with that legal currency. Which legally is supposed
to be, gold or silver.
Any other debts incurred with unlawful currency are null and void.
Should employers be required to pay men and women the same salary for
the same job?
Different people have different needs. There is no one size fits all
salary structure. Salary should be negotiated fairly, on the basis of
experience, need, and availability. That is between the employer and
employee, and reflected in the right to contract.
Should physically and mentally capable adults on welfare be required to work?
“Required” is a loaded question. If there is no work. And nobody will
employ you, that is what the subsidy is for. If you are incapable of
working, and are in poverty. Even if you attempt work repeatedly, and
struggle to hold a job, that is what government is there for. To keep
you in a position for the next opportunity, or on your feet until you
can no longer stand on your feet mentally or physically. Otherwise,
what are you being taxed for? To get nothing back from government?
Should businesses be required to provide paid leave for full-time
employees during the birth of a child or sick family member?
Required? No. But let the market decide. Surely women will gladly work
for an employer that offers such services. And such companies can
target their recruiting for those women. In those careers women seek
with their education and experience.
Should the U.S. reduce corporate income tax rates?
If you eliminate inflation with debt free money. There is no need for
an income tax. I see no reason why American companies should pay
Corporate Income Tax in American endeavors and investments. Foreign
Income should be taxed so as to encourage American companies to keep
their money in America. You should have to be physically housed,
incorporated and based with your operations in the United States.
Otherwise you must pay a tax on the money you made from America, but
chose not to invest in America.
Do you believe labor unions help or hurt the economy?
Labor unions should be Democratic. Any undemocratic union, that uses
money taken involuntarily from the workers, without their input and
vote on how it should be used, should be disbanded. All matters before
the union should be put to a democratic vote.
Should the government require businesses to pay salaried employees,
making up to $46k/year, time-and-a-half for overtime hours?
Require? No. Let the Free Market decide.
Should the government increase the tax rate on profits earned from the
sale of stocks, bonds, and real estate?
Government has no right to tax such things. People have a right to
profit from selling their property as they wish.
Should the Federal Reserve Bank be audited by Congress?
Red herring. It should be made to compete with Debt free money, backed
by the labor of the American worker.
Do you support the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)?
Any trade deal that violates the US Constitution or Labor Law, or
property rights, antitrust law, and the like, should be null and void.
The American Constitution and US Commercial Law is paramount.
Should the government subsidize farmers?
Farming subsides should be means tested.
Should U.S. citizens be allowed to save or invest their money in
offshore bank accounts?
Any such investments should be taxed in accordance with their status
as US citizens subject to the Income Tax. If the Income Tax is
eliminated, their is no need to put money in offshore accounts.
Would you favor an increased sales tax in order to reduce property taxes?
No. And increased sales tax punishes low income indiscriminately for
the benefit of property owners.
Should pension plans for federal, state, and local government workers
be transitioned into privately managed accounts?
Let the workers decide.
Should the U.S. government bailout Puerto Rico?
No. Puerto Rico, must reform to become solvent again.

buyers from out-of-state sellers?
No. Let the internet stay tax free. Sales tax is a state issue.

property to be used as you wish.
Should the government classify Bitcoin as a legal currency?
Competition in currency is the only guard against inflation.
Should there be more restrictions on the current process of purchasing a gun?
For self defense and defense of our own country, especially at a time

No. The individual or individuals who committed the crime are solely
Should people on the “no-fly list” be banned from purchasing guns and
No elimination of rights without due process of law.
Should there be term limits set for members of Congress?
The Founders proposed it, but were divided on the principle. And never
came to a majority. It can be said that term limits are
Anti-Democratic. The people do still have the right to vote anyone out
of office. If they choose rich people, that’s what they get.
Should internet service providers be allowed to speed up access to
popular websites (that pay higher rates) at the expense of slowing
