If only Barry Goldwater was running...

Issues that concern me.

*Personal Freedom
No governmental intrusion on personal freedom, rights, or general carryings on unless there is a reasonable reason to do so.
I want the Patriot Act repealed.
The Department of Homeland Security should be dismantled and its responsibilities should be separated into the various pre-existing agencies specified for maintaining non-intrusive domestic security.
Gun control limited to background checks and automatic assault rifles.

The American system works only when there is an educated populace. Education is more important than anything. As the bodies of information and knowledge continue to vastly increase, we need a population that is ready and able to further this knowledge as a general contribution to the world as a whole. More and higher paid teachers, better learning facilities, and greater accessibility to a collegiate degree.

*Alternative Energy
Federally supplemented research, development, and implementation of alternative energy. Alternative energy will only serve to lessen carbon emissions, reduce dependence on foreign resources, and spark massive economic growth.

*Economic Opportunity
Encourage the growth of new business. Tax the wealthy to a greater degree than the poor and middle classes regardless of political contribution. Minimal taxes collected to keep a minimally intrusive government running. Government contracts awarded through a highly competitive process and wholly separated from political personal interest. Energy should not be falsely inflated in price. Companies proven to be engaged in predatory economics will be penalized.

*Separation of Church and State
Do not attempt to use political office to further a religious agenda. Do not use religious agenda as a motivation for political decisions. It is acceptable to use religion in regards to your personal morality; it is not acceptable to attempt to infiltrate any branch of government to further any religious cause to any degree.

Keep America diverse while still maintaining American ideals and culture. The American-Mexican border needs to be regulated much heavier. A national identification card should be required for all citizens to obtain employment or governmental services. Employers of illegal immigrants should be penalized. Forgers of documents for illegal immigrants should be penalized. Birth certificates and Social Security cards should have much greater security and counterfeit protection than they currently possess. Immigrants should demonstrate that they will uphold a mutually beneficial relationship with their new country, and should wholeheartedly identify with American ideals.

*National Security
A technologically superior and highly mobile military should be kept. Once again, military contracts will be awarded in a highly competitive process and held to their original budget. These contracts should not be extremely lucrative, but should also be lucrative enough to entice great amounts of private interest. Domestic security will be non-invasive and carried out in accordance with established individual rights.

*Environmental Issues
Alternative energy should be given great priority. National Parks should be increased in size and number. Alaska will not be relied on for oil resources of any kind. Greater emphasis on personal alternative energy generation and use. Lower emission rates for automobiles and industry. Clean efficient public transportation more widely implemented and emphasized. Consideration given to other countries to implement lower emission policies.

*Foreign Policy
Complete withdrawal from Iraq. Emphasis on mutually beneficial relationships with other nations. Rebuild relationships along with economic and political ties with Europe. Domestic implementation of alternative energy will reduce reliance on foreign resources and lessen American political interest in the Middle East. Foreign aid based on American interests. Congressionally backed entrance into conflict without exception. No preemptive conflict. Encouragement of domestic manufacturing and superior quality of American products.

*Taxation and Government
Taxes should be collected only to keep an efficient minimal government running. Government expenditures should be kept at a minimum but should still be able to cover all expenses necessary to this minimal government. All failing or non-essential governmental programs should be rethought and reimplemented or disbanded. Government employees should be given competitive salaries and demonstrate a high level of competence. Standards for governmental employees should be kept and promotion should be based upon merit instead of seniority.

What will you be basing your vote on?


Hmmm ...The spook community used to be all separated, but Congress wanted greater oversight. How would you stop Congress from overstepping its authority?

You blew through National Security without saying how you would obtain an army. Draft?

We have one of the best educations systems in World. Just how would force dumbshits to learn?

What of drilling our own assets re energy? Right now, as I type, China is building offshore platforms in the Gulf of Mexico where we are forbidden to do so by Congress.

Poor people don't pay taxes, Will. They file and get it ALL BACK plus some extra. Rich people pay 90% of the taxes already. That aside, why not a VAT and a flat income tax with zero deductions?

The 'spook community' would be the same as it was pre 2000. The agencies will have the same authority and responsibility as they did pre 9/11. This time though, they will have the precedent of failure during 9/11 and will be on their toes. The various branches will be separate sans cooperation on a legitimate and immediate threat. Once again, Any appointed official from 2001 on will be removed from office unless they have demonstrated superior service and dedication to the intrests of the American population.

The Army as i said will be small and tecnologically advanced. there will be no need for a draft because the American entrance into conflict will be based on national defense. Tell me that you will need a draft when America is legitimately in danger.

Our education system is one of the best in the world if you factor in the 100 plus countries that just flat out aren't worth a damn. The American economy is what it is today because of American ingenuity. Our system truly gives the brightest the opportunity to shine, but what of the ignorant and generally uneducated people that have the same say in how America is ran as the brightest most thoroughly educated scholars. Is this right? should we make a greater effort to provide and stimulate edcated thought based solely on the fact that my vote is worth the same as some toothless racist son of a bitch southerner? Absolutely.

Alternative energy is one of the main points of my platform. You are saying that off the coast of Louisiana and Texas, America isn't sucking up oil? Yea ok. Oil is integral to our economy presently, but there is absofuckinglutely no way that we should be putting all of our money into one nonrenewable resource. Brazil is literally 75 percent running on ethanol. Tell me why ethanol isn't implemented in the most technologically advanced nation in the world.

Taxes. I said that the rich should be taxed to the same degree as the poor and middle classes. If the poor don't pay taxes, and the middle class can suck up the burden, tell me why, as a lower middle class citizen yourself, the top 1 or 2 percent of Americans can't pay a relative percenatge back to the country that gave them an unfathomable standard of living.
