I would like to see a candidate have positions similar to these: Key positions: <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /> Immigration: If here illegally they have one year to exit these United States on their own accord. If discovered after the moratorium they will forfeit all possessions and be deported. All cash and possessions seized will be liquidated with the proceeds split between ICE and the local municipality law enforcement. National Defense: No "nation building" no "aid". I would endorse a strike hard and fast at any enemies. If a collation cannot be formed then it will be a job for special operations, after all that's what we pay them for. Piracy: Privateers as per the constitution (thanks Ron) the compensation only needs to be restructured. Social Security: Do away with the Ponzy scheme. Each account balance will be brought up to what each individual has contributed and managed by a private regulated provider like any 401k. The only difference is I would prefer greater investment flexibility. Health Care: Mandate medical service providers charge the same (or average) price as charged to insurance providers. No longer will predatory pricing be allowed to subsidize the lower prices charged to insurance companies. Something will need to be done in regards to the insurance companies ability to strong-arm medical service providers into paying whatever suites them. Much more on this topic. Cut Federal Gov't and Spending: Simply if the program does not clearly adhere to the guidelines set forth in the constitution then eliminate them. Debt: Pay off the debt as soon as possible. Step one No Deficit. Seek balanced budget legislation. Finance wars with bonds... (open to suggestions here). Gun Control: Honor the second amendment.
