Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Diane Beall Templin

Candidate for
United States Senator

This information is provided by the candidate

I believe: "Men and women become accomplices to those evils they fail to oppose." author unknown;

"..it does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.." - Samuel Adams

I believe in: a return to the principles adhered to by our founding fathers as expressed in our Constitution and the Bible; The sanctity of innocent human life, including the lives of the unborn; Protection of American jobs from unfair foreign competition; repeal of NAFTA, GATT/WTO; fair trade, not free trade. Limits on legal immigration, and an end to illegal immigration; no tax funded benefits to illegals; Excellence in education, and right of parents to choose public schools, private schools, or home schooling; Control of crime; capital punishment for the most aggravated offenses; Right of Citizens to keep and bear arms as provided by the Bill of Rights; Ending the personal income tax, and abolition of the IRS; A debt free money system; A non-interventionist foreign policy, and a strong national defense free of waste; Protection of consumers' rights in utility rates, insurance, health care, and housing; Consideration of human needs in environmental concerns; I oppose any revision of the California Constitution to limit the right to vote, impair the people's right of initiative, overturn voter approved term limits, make it easier for government to tax and spend, or create bureaucratic regional governments. I oppose both government speculation with Social Security funds, and affirmative action programs which substitute racial favoritism for individual ability.
