This information is provided by the candidate

End special interest control of our politics through (1) elimination of PACs and soft money, (2) public sponsorship of election campaigns, and (3) prevention of lobbying for former public servants on behalf of domestic and foreign interests.

Create a true health care system (as opposed to a disease care system) by adding cost-effective, prevention-oriented heal care programs scientifically shown to prevent disease, promote health, and save money in the best possible way - by keeping people healthy.

Prevent crime - not warehousing criminals - through effective criminal and drug rehabilitation programs, and through proven programs to reduce high levels of societal stress.

Education that develops the student's full potential through curriculum innovations proven to increase intelligence, creativity, and academic performance.

Cut taxes deeply and responsibly though cost-effective solutions to crime, spiraling health costs, and other social problems - not though cutting essential services.

Protect the environment though energy efficiency and the use of renewable, safe, nonpolluting energy sources such as wind, solar, and biomass.

Safeguard America's food supply though sustainable, organic agricultural practices proven to produce healthy, hi-quality food without hazardous chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Mandatory labeling and safety testing of genetically engineered foods, and a moratorium on the release of these experimental life-forms into the environment until proven safe.

Ensure a strong economy by (1) more effectively harnessing our greatest national resource - the unlimited creativity and intelligence of our 270 million citizens, and (2) implementing powerful, pro-growth tax and fiscal policies.

Promote more prosperous and harmonious international relations by shifting our foreign policy away from the export of weapons towards the export of U.S. know-how and technical assistance in key areas, such as business, entrepreneurship, education, sustainable agriculture, and environmental technologies.
