Immigration
Our nation has always benefited from the immigrant's work ethic. Let's continue to do so by making it easier to live and work in this country, and let's make it possible for those currently here illegally to stay without being allowed to become citizens.
   
Abortion
The government must stay out of the abortion debate. Prohibiting abortion will not eliminate it, it will merely create more criminals.

I resepct the views that forbid abortion. However, just because something is legal does not make it mandatory. No one is obligated to have one.

Drug Legalization
What we do in the privacy of our own home is our business, not the government's.

Besides, all prohibiting drugs do is make criminals wealthy. By legalizing them, we will eliminate the violence associated with drugs.
Death Penalty
Over 700 convited murderers have been released from prison because it has been established they were innocent, including 152 from death row.

It is not reasonable to believe this nation has not executed innocent people. It is time to end the death penalty.

Our Responsibilities As Citizens
We cannot expect more out of our country until we start expecting more out of ourselves.

Only an America with demanding and participating citizens will deliver the government we deserve.

We will always get the government we elect, and the government we want and deserve is never farther away than the next election.

Gay Marriage
For a nation conceived in liberty, can we do anything else but allow gay marriage?

No, we can't. When we deny liberty to one segment of our society, we are making them, and us, second-class citizens.

Either all of us are free, or none of us are free.
  
Health Care
We allow the free market to provide food, clothing and shelter, we should allow it to provide our medical care, too.

Doctors and health insurers are entitled to the same access to a free market other businesses have. With a free market - and without government regulation -  the quality of care will rise and costs will come down.
Foregin Policy
We will not have a peaceful world until we have a peaceful America. There is no substitute.

America must give other nations the dignity of conducting their affairs without US interference. When we do, people will stop flying airplanes into our buildings.
Gaylon Kent
Low Taxes and Free Markets
Our economy is still in the tank and it will remain in the tank until it is anchored in low taxes and free markets.

It is time for a flat tax of ten percent on our nation's citizens and businesses and a tax return we can fill out on a single sheet of paper.
   
 
    
 
   
Gun Control
A constitutional right is a constitutional right. We would not allow the government to tell us when we could worship. If we would not allow limits on our First Amendment rights, why are we allowing them on our Second Amendment rights?
   
 
Friends, America needs our help. I'll lead the charge. Let's go!

Trail Mix: News From The Campaign Trail
   
 
Friends, here are the four things I want for our country. I hope you want them, too.

1. An America at peace inside and outside her borders.
America has been at war continuously since 1989. The consequences are a violent world and a violent America. The time has come to see the kind of world and country that would be produced by an America at peace.

2. An America with an economy anchored in low taxes and free markets.

America will only have a flourishing economy when it is anchored in low taxes and free markets. I support a flat tax of no more than 10 percent on citizens and businesses. This will give you and I more money to spend and businesses more money to meet consumers growing demands.

3. An America that does not convict the innocent. 
Every week people are released from American prisons after serving 10, 20, 30 sometimes 40 years for crimes they did not commit. This has no place in a nation conceived in liberty. It's possible to be tough on crime without sending the innocent to jail.

4. An empowered American electorate.
Every obstacle and challenge faced by our country can be solved by conerned and conscientius citizens like you and me. I believe, and I hope you do, too, that the government we deserve is never farther away than the next election.
The time has come for us - you and me, we the people - to hold our leaders accountable for what they've done to our country.
