A Refresher Course on my Dream Presidential Candidate

She would support:

1) Malta level laws on abortion and contraception, being passed NOW
2) End to “no fault” divorce.  Promotes covenant marriage and jail sentences for adulterers.  Supports abolishing the Dept. of Education and putting control of education and educational spending at the local level.
3) Favors maintaining and protecting but also reforming current welfare programs while eliminating “welfare for the rich,” NEA, NEH, PBS/NPR, and drastically reducing the “defense” budget to support a defensive, rather than invasive, military.  Use our troops to protect our borders and stop illegal immigration and smuggling.
4) Supports a Fair Tax, with no sales tax on food, medical expenses, rent, or second-hand items (including used cars and houses).  Contrary to claims that Sales Taxes unduly burden the poor, it would put the burden on those who engage in conspicuous consumption.
5) Favors  Supports a peace-oriented foreign policy, opposes intrinsically evil nuclear weapons, use of torture, and attacks on civilian targets.
6) Supports policies that encourage ownership of labor by the workers themselves: privatizing many functions currently performed by government workers (even if those functions are still paid for by the government through contracting), encouraging if not requiring corporations to have employee stock plans, encouraging actual home ownership as opposed to mortgages, encouraging degrees in education, medicine and practical trades.
7) Promotes alternative energy research and usage.  Promotes recycling and the use of land for actually growing food.  Eliminates federal, state and local zoning regulations and restrictive covenants that discourage gardening, alternative energy devices or hang drying clothes.
8) Promotes authentic healthcare reform, including tort reform on the one hand but also requiring loss of licenses if medical professionals reach a threshold of complaints.
