Social Policy

Abortion:Pro-Life,Illegal except in the life of the mother(you get the picture).

Gay Rights:Should be none of the governments damn business.

Affirmative Action:Should be banded. Racism with a smile on its face.

Death Penalty:Support. But im not 100% on this issue.

Drugs:I support legalizing Marijuana. But not other hard drugs. End the drug war as it costs to much money.

Gambling:Completely legal.

Economic Policy

Taxes:Massive cuts to Business taxes and massive across the board tax cuts. Reform to a flat tax system.

Healthcare:I oppose Obamacare. If the government forces you to buy healthcare whats stoping them from forcing you to buy say tooth paste?. Its a slippery slope. Support tort reform and other measures to lower the cost of healthcare, oppose Socialized medicine and other government involvement.

Social Security:Part of it should be privatized. If someone wants to opt out of the system so be it.

Education:School vouchers would be a good start. Raise teachers pay but cut of funding for failing public schools.
 
Welfare:There should be a safety net to help the poor. However welfare is extremely unproductive and has gone to far. Maybe something like a negative income tax were everyone was guaranteed to a home and the market could flourish without regulation?. Im in favor of Milton Friedman's negative income proposals along with massive privatization of government sectors. Abolish welfare and replace with a Negative Income tax. Basically i'm like Milton Friedman or Jack Kemp a extreme free marketer yet someone who believes in helping the poor: through market means.

Medicare:Turn into a voucher program.

Spending:Large spending cuts to pay back the debt specifically entitlements along with military cuts. Trim down the number of government employees.

Foreign Policy

Foreign Aid:Cut back all foreign aid. We have enough problems at home to deal with don't we?.

Afghanistan:Its time to leave.

Iraq:Should have never happened in the first place.

UN:Scale back our current involvement.
