Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

They should be allowed until there is a time when the unwanted children born to mothers who are denied an abortion will be protected, cared for and ideally placed in a loving home.

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

The discrimination of the Israeli government fuels a large part of the violence directed towards Israel and the USA. America must make fair, non-discriminatory treatment of the Palestinians a requirement for the US support and funding of Israel.

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

Not sure as these founding fathers were also slave owners and the basic concept of the Constitution is underminded by that reality.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Do unto others what you would like others to do onto you.

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

No Answer

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

I believe that in the present society the category Radical best defines me. Radical means getting to the root of the problem. No different then getting to the root of a weed is essential for its removal. The life of my role model, Jesus, is a prime example of Radical.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

As a physician who trained in Canada I strongly believe that their system of Medicare for All is an important model for the USA. There is no need for the profit making insurance companies to be allowed participation in Healthcare.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The most effective aspect of FDR's governance was the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). It would be very useful today in providing meaningful work with living wages and most importantly it could repair America's failing infrastructure.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

The $1.5 trillion tax break for the rich should be immediately reversed.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

See # 31 answer.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Not allow money from social security funds to be used for anything else.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

Along with treating others as I would wish to be treated my life's experience has given me another important guiding principle: No one is greater or lesser than another. These principles are not obvious in the politics of today.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

In taking the time to answer this survey it clearly is promoted by a Conservative point of view. I have many Conservative friends and what we share is an open mind and open heart. I hope that this survey will be viewed by readers in that perspective.
