Q: What can Congress do to strengthen the economy?
A: “Congress can strengthen the economy by rolling back the hundreds of thousands of regulations in place for small businesses. These regulations create barriers to entry into markets for individuals and small business to offer goods and services which prevents people from creating jobs. Regulatory compliance is a straight cost item which businesses pass on to their customers increasing the price of whatever the business sells.”
Q: How would you act in the Senate to work toward reducing the national debt, as well as creating and keeping jobs in the United States?
A: “In Congress, I would work to reduce the federal debt by reducing the government spending and roll back the budget to 2006 (levels). I would reduce the federal debt by voting against unbalanced budgets, all tax increases, and all increases in government spending. I will further reduce the federal debt by allowing individuals to opt out of receiving Social Security and stopping the funding of undeclared wars.”
Q: Do you support a federal minimum wage? Why or why not? If yes, what should the federal minimum wage be set at?
A: “I am against the federal minimum wage. The federal minimum wage interferes with an individual’s ability to negotiate their own agreement. The minimum wage creates a price floor which keeps people out of jobs because the people involved do not see the value at the minimum wage level.” Senate toward accomplishing these goals?
“I would defeat terrorists groups by not creating them in the first place. The U.S. is not the world’s policeman and should not have the excessive presence in the areas it has now. Bombing innocent men, women, and children destabilizes peace in the U.S. because the U.S. has no authority to tell people how to live their lives. The U.S. should not be involved in arming anyone in a foreign land.”
Q: Do you believe the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay should be closed or remain open? Why or why not?
A: “Guantanamo Bay should be closed immediately and the people there given trial in a court of law or released immediately. Guantanamo Bay has been another black mark on the face of the American people for its horrible human rights violations all under the guise of stopping terrorism.”
Q: Do you support the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the “Iran deal?” Why or why not?
A: “I am against the Iran deal because it involves foreign aid. The U.S. should not be giving money away to foreign governments. The Iran deal just expands the role of the U.S. as the world’s policeman and creates more motivation for groups to organize and inflict violence against the American people.”
