It is the personal choice of the person and NO lawmaker, business or religious institution should have any say on what one does with her body.

NoCandidate AnswerIn order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?
NoCandidate AnswerIn order to balance the budget, do you support reducing defense spending?
Other or expanded principles

Even tho I'm aware that the defense spending is very high, I, however, do not support a tragic cut in spending for it. I do however support the taking way them load of money each politician gets a year and reducing it by two-fold. When a politician makes triple the amount than the ones protecting them. That is a big issue with me.

YesCandidate AnswerDo you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?

I do not support lowering the corporate taxes, most corporations already get a helping hand as is.

I will support any new law placed or regulation that protects OUR only home. Unlike this current administration who has done everything to damage the past president's mission to protect the planet.

YesCandidate AnswerDo you generally support gun-control legislation?
Other or expanded principles

Guns and the 2nd Amendment is a huge topic and discussion of many debates. Like every other politician or person running for office, I'm asked this all the time. What is my stance on guns and gun control? So, let me be clear on it now. I support the 2nd Amendment and the right to bear arms. With the understanding that in order to have guns, WE MUST HAVE LAWS that govern them and who has them.

NoCandidate AnswerDo you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare")?
Other or expanded principles

I do not support repealing it, it has helped many people in this country. However, I DO NOT support the charging a penalty for not having insurance.

NoCandidate AnswerDo you support the construction of a wall along the Mexican border?
NoCandidate AnswerDo you support requiring immigrants who are unlawfully present to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?
Other or expanded principles

I'm all for protecting our great nation from things and people. But, I firmly trust that our leaders have been trying to push the wrong agenda. If we as a nation care so much about protecting our southern border, instead of a wall and tons of money wasted.

I see a better option, hire more of our good citizens to patrol it. In doing so, we will kill two birds with one stone. One we will have a secure border and the other is people will be working.....JOBS.

YesCandidate AnswerDo you support the legalization of marijuana for recreational purposes?

NoCandidate AnswerDo you support increased American intervention in Middle Eastern conflicts beyond air support?
Other or expanded principles

No. Unless it is a direct cause and we are 100% truthful that it is hostile against the USA. And as for the intervention in the Middle East, I do not support the USA getting into conflicts that have of NO meaning to the USA. We must keep out of every issue that is going on around the world, and focus more on our own issues.

Please explain in a total of 100 words or less, your top two or three priorities if elected. If they require additional funding for implementation, please explain how you would obtain this funding.

Making sure we don't enter every conflict around the world and bring our soldiers HOME.
Protecting the Environment from every politician (and President), corporations or anyone who wish to continue to hurt our only home and invest in renewable energy 100%.
