I want a complete government audit by two separate outside firms to determine were the spending needs to be chopped. New Jersey is the highest taxed state in United States and we continue to have financial difficulties. This is an atrocity, something is wrong, there is misuse of funds and it needs to be brought to the attention of the people of New Jersey, we need transparency and a trustworthy government. We need change and we need it now if we want to bring New Jersey back on the map.

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
I believe our healthcare system is in dire need of assistance. We have to rebuild from the ground floor, to protect our elderly, our young, our disadvantaged and misfortunate but we also have to respect our health care system. The system cannot be taken advantage of, we need to put in place a plan of action that will address the misuse of the system as well as the misuse of power that denies coverage. We need auddits and real people working to rebuild a system that is broken. This is why we need real people working in government again, transparency, accessibility, proffesionalizm and honesty to help rebuild our government which includes our healthcare system.. We have aloud people to get rich while others are suffering, God has a plan and I hope to be a part of that plan.

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality that is necessary for our system of limited government.
I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

A tax plan that includes a complete outside audit that is based on a strict mathematical formula to keep our seniors and retirees in N.j. Infrastructure, to bring more economical opportunities to our college graduates & skilled trade laborers.
Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?
Yes, our own government over past year and a half has used racism as a politicla tool to create a division within our own country. History repeats itself, we have to be able to learn from it to ensure the same mistakes will not be repeated. We are at war, our civil liberties are being threatened, our religious beliefs, educational beliefs, medical choices, our right to carry and bear arms are only a few of the rights that we are at risk of loosing while our present government continue to create a division through racism as a political tool to ignore the obvious. They are talking about infrastructure but are ignoring what history has taught us, the strong with jewels, gems and product to trade overtake the weak with nothing.
