Our highest national priority. We need a stronger military. Defense spending should be used more effectively, but never cut below 4% of the GDP. The fight against Islamic Fascism is global. Fight it wherever it is a threat to the United States of America. Let our intelligence agencies do their jobs.
No new or higher taxes! We need to replace the current income tax with the Fair Tax but in the interim, the current tax rates need to be made permanent.
Federal spending is out of control (Tsunami)! We need to cap all federal spending indefinitely, beginning with the restructuring of Medicare and Medicaid.
The Social Security system is nearing bankruptcy due to decades of mismanagement, a flawed structure and a lack of leadership and political will in Congress for meaningful change. What is worse, we have known for over 25 years that the system is destined for failure. Yet, every year, Congress shirks its duty to address the problems in Social Security and instead has implemented such preposterous "solutions" as raising taxes on Social Security benefits, raising the payroll tax cap, and increasing the retirement age for benefits.
Health Care Reform
Too many people want to fix the leaks in our health care roof by blowing up the building. Here’s a novel idea, let’s just fix the leaks in the roof.
It's time to start maximizing the use of all our natural resources in the USA. We don't have to go broke just to go green. We need to become more self-sufficient because the major oil producing countries are not our friends.
The FairTax is a federal retail sales tax that replaces the entire federal income and Social Security tax systems, including personal, gift, estate, capital gains, alternative minimum, Social Security/Medicare, self-employment, and corporate taxes. The FairTax allows Americans to keep 100 percent of their paychecks (minus any state income taxes), ends corporate taxes and compliance costs hidden in the retail cost of goods and services, and fully funds the federal government while fulfilling the promise of Social Security and Medicare. (HR 25 in the US House and S 296 in the US Senate).
Life and Liberty
We must defend the Constitution and all of its Amendments.
