My Political Priorities 

(We are in a confusing political campaign season and the coming year will even be worse.  I suggest that every concerned citizen sit down and write out their convictions and what they want to see happen.  Please, do not play the personalities game and just go for the slickest, smoothest or most likeable candidate.  The one who seems the best may actually be the worst person for the job.  You may or may not agree with my list, but here is what I think.  What about you?) 

No government interference with the freedom of religion.

Sanctity of home and parental rights.

Protection of unborn children.

No taxation of churches or religious institutions.

Guarantee of freedom of speech.

Guarantee of freedom of association.

Abolition of the IRS and the implementation of a fair tax system.

Restricted immigration.

Guarantee of states’ rights.

Secure borders.

National security.

Freedom to defend oneself, one’s family and one’s property.

Education, employment and advancement based on individual merit, not quotas or affirmative action.

Right to work.

Freedom to choose one’s insurance carrier or other contractual agreements.

Congress forced to comply with a budget.

Restriction of executive powers.

Absolute accountability of government entities and executives.

Term limits for all congressional positions.


My Political Preferences

Pull out of the United Nations.

Full disclosure of terrorist activities and activists.

Guarantee of the Bill of Rights on college campuses and universities.

Strengthening of military to protect American interests in the world.
