Questions & Answers

1. How will you prioritize the budget choices the Legislature must make to align the state’s income and spending?

Taxpayer's dollar would only be spent on restoration of Earth & Inhabitants. We would encourage local employment providing most our needs locally cutting down on mass commuting & building new roads & bridges. Paid $15 an hour, a 30 hour workweek, A $300 monthly living stipend equals $27,000 yearly less then jail or prison, creating taxpaying consumers, less need for costly judicial & penal systems ,employment, not profit from imprisonment. Saving & providing water is a major issue new dams & canals will not address,nor will solar panels or windmills. We need financial reform & an oxygen source for water that only growing marijuana can provide.

2. What types of changes or reforms, if any, do you think are important to make our state government function more effectively?

We need to stop the costly war on drugs, particularly marijuana. Our state legislative body overwhelmingly passed industrial hemp bills 2006, 2007, 2011 to be vetoed by our governor. Imagine the PROFIT sustainable yield business, local employment, ENVIRONMENTAL HEALING of marijuana farms not arms as substitute for current source of fossil fuel products, [gasoline, non-toxic plastic wrap & containers for food], [toilet] paper, nuclear, hydro, coal energy, incinerator toilets that use no water or septic, dirty air, food, water, unemployment, failing economy, environment, socisl security & services, health care.

3. Fees for public higher education have gone up dramatically and funding has been cut. Is this a priority concern, and if so, what measures would you propose to address it?

I believe the whole educational system should be changed to promote more Earth-healing behavior. Our taxdollars support colleges & universities which teach the practise of repulsive medical care, animal experimentation, research of weapons of mass destruction,[nuclear, drones, space reasearch for warfare. The national anthem should be changed to America the Beautiful or This land is MY land. Jobs should be localized so families have more productive time together to promote a feeling of selfworth in our people that would lead to loving our environment, wanting to save it. If we finance universities they should be used only to teach healing of Earth, or used as employment agencies to promote such.

4. What other major issues do you think the Legislature must address? What are your own priorities?

My priorities are to use taxpayer's dollars only for restoration of Earth & Inhabitants. We need to legalize marijuana, grow everywhere as substitute for all its uses to create mass employment which leads to a greater tax base. We should divert any money used for taxpayer's non-profit organizations, [defense, space research, unneeded building] to grants for business used only for employment with great benefits restoring Earth. We should give business & landowner's tax exemptions & deductions only for percentage money spent restoring Earth. For increased tax base charge one cent, federal, state, county tax every dollar transaction, rather then current form.
