The issues which concern me are, Character, integrity, social values, family, family values, DOMA as initiated by President Clinton, Honesty, dignity, Compassion, Peace, Love and to allow our people their rights to the pursuit of happiness. Enforce every element of our Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence which has been abandoned by our policing agencies. Taxes today are nothing less than theft from the people, The police no longer protect the liberties of our citizens but intrude upon our private space, private ownership and our rights as guaranteed under the constitution. The police no longer protect our citizenry, they prosecute the innocent and while protecting the guilty.
