Please describe your platform? Minimum Government, Maximum Freedom
If elected, what is your first priority:
Cut federal spending by at least 50 percent
Who do you think is your biggest challenger and why?
John McCain, because he's the incumbent, has near-universal name recognition, and limitless funds.
What do you think sets you apart from your opponent(s)?
I'm the only candidate in this race who is totally committed to reducing the size, cost, power and intrusiveness of the federal government.
What would you do to achieve more transparency in government, and should government officials be in charge of managing those efforts?
Require all bills to be read, in their entirety, on the floor of both the House and the Senate before they are voted on. Require that each bill deal with only one subject.
Public notices are regarded as one important way for the public to find out what is really happening in government. Newspapers currently not only print public notices but also operate a free, consolidated, online, searchable database. Some people advocate that public notices should be available only on government websites. Do you agree that the Legislature should change the current law to mandate that public notices be available only on government websites?
What do you think is the biggest challenge right now facing Yumans, and Arizonans?
Making ends meet in an economy that has been nearly destroyed by profligate spending and borrowing.
What would you do, if elected, to help change that?
Cut Federal spending and end all taxes on personal income.
What is one of your strengths?
Intelligence , tenaciousness, honesty
Weaknesses (something you’d like to improve upon)?
What is one thing that you want voters to know?
I strongly support Constitutional limits on federal activities.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
One of my first acts as a U.S. Senator would be to introduce a bill requiring the Bill of Rights to be displayed prominently in all federal buildings.
