Trade: Support fair trade with friendly countries
Deficit/Debt: Reduce the scope of government first, then we can talk about the bottom line
Campaign Finance: The status quo is fine
Unions: Support, abolish right-to-work nationwide, and encourage average workers to become more involved with their unions to reduce the influence of hardline activists in organized labor
Energy: All of the above policy - let the market sort it out
Job Creation: Government doesn't create jobs, and working is a lifestyle choice

Environment

Climate Change: It is real and we need to impose a revenue-neutral carbon tax (that would return all revenues to small businesses and taxpayers). (TD's words, I agree) But in addition to that we should invest heavily in solar and wind power, abide by the Paris agreement, and aim to eventually phase out fossil fuels.
EPA: Maintain strong support for the EPA. Our planet is our future and we need to balance growth with environmental protection, but let's not hesitate to challenge corporate polluters and stand up to them.

Healthcare

ObamaCare: Repeal it and use a single payer system, keep provision that states children can be on parents health care plan until 25.

Political

Gerrymandering: There should be a neutral commission to regulate this
Electoral College: I support the Interstate Compact.
Statehood: Should not be given to DC, but another referendum should be held for Puerto Rico.
Campaign Finance Reform: Return to where we were before Citizens United.
Term Limits: Support
