1. What does California need to do to address the current budget crisis?

Answer from Cullene Lang:

I support implementation the following policies: a. Dramatic reductions in both taxes and government spending; b. An end to deficit budgets; c. A halt to inflationary monetary policies; d. The elimination of all government impediments to free trade; and e. The repeal of all controls on wages, prices, rents, profits, production and interest rates.

2. What should the state's priorities be for K-12 education? For the Community College System?

Answer from Cullene Lang:

I advocate the complete separation of education and the state. Government schools lead to the indoctrination of children and interfere with the free choice of individuals. Government ownership, operation, regulation, and subsidy of schools and colleges should be ended. As an interim measure to encourage the growth of private schools and variety in education, including home schooling, I support tax credits for tuition and other expenditures related to an individual's education.

3. What measures would you support to address California's water needs?

Answer from Cullene Lang:

I advocate the establishment of an efficient and just system of private water rights applied to all bodies of water, surface and underground. Such a system should be built upon a doctrine of first claim and use. The allocation of water should be governed by unrestricted competition and unregulated prices. I also advocate the privatization of government and quasi-government water supply systems.

4. What should the Legislature be doing to address the needs of Californians without health insurance?

Answer from Cullene Lang:

I favor restoring and reviving a free market health care system, and advocate a complete separation of medicine from the state. I support an end to government-provided health insurance and health care. Both of these functions can be more effectively provided in the private sector. I support freedom of research, including human cloning and stem cell research by private industry and universities. I do not support government restriction or funding of medical or scientific research.
