Position Papers
Abolishing the Federal Gasoline Tax
"On my first day in office I will introduce a bill to abolish the federal gasoline tax the federal gasoline tax."

Where does our gas tax money go?

  • $2.5 billion to help small railroads in South Dakota
  • $6 million for graffiti elimination in New York
  • $4 million on the National Packard Museum in Warren, OH and the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan
  • $2.4 million on a Red River National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center in Louisiana
  • $200 million for Alaska's "bridge to nowhere"
Confronting Illegal Immigration
Are terrorists waiting to sneak across our border?

What is it about the word 'illegal' people don't seem to understand?

It's Time to Secure Our Borders Once and For All

Protecting Our Seaports
We cannot afford to hand over the keys to U.S. strategic ports to a regime that recognized the Taliban.

Prior to 9/11, less than 4% of all containers were inspected upon their entry into U.S. Ports. Today, that number is a paltry 5%.

That means that 95 out of every 100 containers entering the United States are not inspected!

The threat to American Security is very real. Terrorists, weapons, illegal immigrants, drugs ... all could be entering our nation through our vulnerable ports.
