Do you believe the federal government has struck the proper balance between protecting civil liberties and providing physical security?
No, I think the TSA is out of control and offers little safety & a lot of heart-ache. I suffered great pain at the hands of an over-zealous TSA agent. I believe the TSA should be eliminated & airlines should provide their own security. I have campaigned against the NDAA, CISPA, SOPA/PIPA and HR1981.
Do you support a cap-and-trade system of greenhouse-gas limitation?
No, Cap & Trade is income redistribution between rich & poor countries. It is rife with corruption and does little for the environment.
Do you believe the federal government should do more to help students afford college?
Yes. It is inherent on colleges & universities to reduce costs and not keep raising tuition well above inflation. The cost of a college education is ludicrous and unrealistic for anyone (esp. looking at value for money). Government needs to make it easier for colleges to reduce costs and not burden them with too many regulations.
Do you believe health-insurance plans should cover contraception without co-pays?
Will you vote to end the Bush-era tax cuts on the wealthiest Americans?
Yes. We need a flat tax on all Americans (and corporations) and eliminate all deductions for everyone. The tax system is grossly out of whack and complicated.
In 10 words or fewer, please express your view on Congressional compromise.
Real compromise is never a bad thing however principles are important and essential.
