Guns, 2nd Amendment



I support the 2nd Amendment
I have a License to Carry
I have an FID Card
I am a member of GOAL
I am a member of the NRA
Gun license fees should be low to encourage legal gun ownership
I will support a hunter's rights
I will never vote to diminish gun owner's rights
I have or will seek the endorsement of GOAL


I have a class A large capacity license and support the 2nd amendment 100%. I just happen to have not joined the NRA or GOAL, not for any particular reason other than I never needed to. I have a membership at my local gun club.






I don't have the endorsement of CLT, but would love to have it. I met Grover Norquist a few weeks ago, emailed him, but never heard back. I am running for federal office so the sales, income and meals tax don't apply to my race, but they obliviously need to be lowered or eliminated. I want to CUT all government salaries not FREEZE them, so I don't want to answer yes or no.








Pro-Life vs. Pro-Choice



, not abortion

When do human beings begin to exist?

Until what point should a women be able to abort her baby?

no point, unless her health is in danger (medical treatments that could endanger the baby)

Have you ever had the opportunity to promote your views on these issues? (provide an example).


My campaign is focusing on the economy.


Pro-Family vs. Pro Same-Sex Marriage



I will support marriage to exist between one man and one woman

Have you ever had the opportunity to promote your views on these issues? (provide an example).

Additional Comments:
The wording of these questions is somewhat ambiguous. Legally, marriage is a states rights issue. Each state is bound by the constitution to decide on the legality of marriage. The government should get out of the marriage business.






Additional Comments:

These comments should be taken in a Federal context only.Question 3 discounts the idea of the representative republic our founders established. Liberal progressives for years have been trying to get ballot questions for a whole host of issues, doing an end run around the legislature. Along this track, trying to eliminate the electoral college. Question 5 is similar to this. Popular (voted by the people) referendum is a liberal progressive tactic subverting our Constitution.
