Questionnaire

Right to Life

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Disagree

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

Disagree

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

All. The purpose of abortion is to remove a fetus that is trespassing over the dominion of rights controlled by the whose person body it is inside of.


Economy

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has a livable income.

Agree

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

No Answer

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Strongly Agree

Socialism provides a robust foundation for a stable economy.

Strongly Agree

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Bringing down unemployment shouldn't be the goal. Automation is coming. We need a society that isn't build around people being forced into slave labor by the threat of death in order to be exploited by the people at the top. The best way to solve the actual problem, poverty, is through workplace democracy and universal basic income.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

"The economy" doesn't exist and what actually needs to change is our economic model. The economy today serves to maximize short term profit to corporate share holders.

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or business owners because of their deeply held religious beliefs.

No Answer

Governments should not penalize those who define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.
