Read the answers from all candidates.
1. What does California need to do to address the current budget crisis?
Reduce Spending! It really is that simple - many government programs begin with great intentions, then grow to astronomical size, and become more of a problem than they were intended to cure. We need to return to a limited government that protects the rights of individual citizens - period. Cutting government programs sometimes seems like a heartless approach, but it is really just a difficult action that will enable all of us to live better lives. Unfortunately, the Republican and Democrat politicians refuse to take this needed action.
2. What should the state's priorities be for K-12 education? For the Community College System?
The state needs to provide major tax credits for those who choose home schooling and private schools to meet their educational family goals.
3. What measures would you support to address California's water needs?
I admit that I don't know enough about this topic to provide specific goals.
4. What should the Legislature be doing to address the needs of Californians without health insurance?
We mistakenly equate health with health insurance. In doing so, we have set goals of having everyone insured at a very high cost. If we return our health care to the open market, health care costs and health insurance costs will drop significantly. The greastest thing we can do for health care is to remove politicians from the equation.
