Questions & Answers

1. What can be done to ensure that California gets its fair share of federal resources?

elect a republican senator instead of do-nothing democratic barbara boxer. california only gets back 76c for every dollar sent to wash. dc. we are being punished for our liberal leanings. i've heard senators refer to california as the state of fruits, nuts, and flakes.the republican national party gives up on electing legislators because of the tremendous cost of doing so here. republicans need to register more voters in order to be taken seriously.

2. What are your foreign policy priorities for the United States?

freedom for the world by 2050. we have just got to stop supporting tyrannies and corruption just because they are opposing our enemies or aiding in fighting terrorism. we must provide an even handed approach to both palestinans and israelis in the mid-east as we have turned the 1.5 million moslem world against us by only supporting israel. we need a plan and instrument to export freedom and i have it.

3. What are your priorities for the federal budget?

stop all pork spending and non-discretionary items in the budget until we have actual budget balance and not the lie in accounting we have now.....see my website on this;;;;
