Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.
I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
The most important part of health care is 'health maintenance' I would propose a program wherein each citizen and legal resident pay $40/mo for this program which allows NO cost doctor visits (general practitioners, specialists, optometrist, audiologists and dentists) as well as no cost prescription coverage. That amount would be equivalent to $144 Billion/year. There is one caveat. Being that the majority of hospital care aside from genetic issues or accidents is the result of smoking or obesity, those persons must partake in smoking cessation programs or weight reduction programs.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.
What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?
We are doing most of what we can do. Unfortunately, this threat is the result of a religious belief and short of eradicating all Muslims, we will have to live with this threat.

Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?
I must live in a fog, because I don't see racism in my daily life, though I work with people of many races. I don't think it's a threat, but I do think there are ways to diminish it. If we're going to focus on the African American community here, we need to start with incentives for education, family unity and opportunity.
