Questions & Answers

1. What specific measures would you support to increase equal access to health care?

None. I will demand the House to censure members who violate their Constitutional Oath by supporting an activity our founding fathers refused to allow the federal government to be involved in. To the extent that government has any right to involve itself in health care, the constitution clearly reserves that right to the States. Congress has exceeded its Constitutional authority in a number of venues at an enormous cost to the sovereign citizens of this ....

2. What measures would you support to reform our campaign finance system?

Our campaign finance system is a monster for one reason - Congress has stepped outside its Constitutional authority by creating programs in Health, Education, old age assistance, housing, insurance etc which has spawned a litter of nondescripts fighting to feed at the public trough, and willing to pay for the privilege of parceling out the pork. As is true of the tax code, all of this pandering is full of legal loopholes.

3. Should the US pay its dues to the UN in full?

The UN charter contains language which undermines the individual sovereignty of U.S. citizens. The U.N. has been given title to over 20 national parks, part of every nation's agreement with the UN. Until the UN models its charter on the most dynamic. successful document in the history of man's governance, the Constitution, which places power in the hands of the governed, I shall work to shut down the UN as presently structured.
