Top Priorities if Elected
  • Greatly reduce federal spending, taxes, and oppressive regulations, so you can spend, save, or donate your hard-earned money as you see fit.
  • Bring our troops home from 140 countries to focus on OUR national defense--not on international meddling and support for corrupt puppet regimes.
  • Restore our precious individual liberties guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.

Key Endorsements

Position Papers
Iraq and Terrorism
We need to return to a foreign policy of non-intervention, peace, and free trade. Attacking Iraq is not only unnecessary, it is wrong and very much against our national interests. We need to stop creating enemies of the United States. And we don't have to trade away our precious liberties to be secure.
Social Programs
Voluntary, community-based solutions work better than government.
Don't waste your vote!
You never waste your vote when you vote your beliefs. You only waste your vote when you fail to cast it, or vote for the "lesser of two evils." Vote for who you want to represent you, regardless of who you think will win.
