1) Education – By any means Necessary
Every tax dollar sent to educate our children, should do just that. For it to go to funding causes or candidates, is fundamentally wrong. Anytime, any entity does not support a “By any means necessary” philosophy to educate our children, I will oppose them.

2) Smaller Government – We need it now
This is a typical example of Big Government starting off small.
“We just want to make you safe, so we want you to wear your seat belt, it’s a good idea, we won’t stop you or pull you over if you are not wearing a seat belt.

We would be better off taking those nickels our selves and just pitching them in the pot holes at least that way they would have something in them besides Carp.
Also Traffic lights, there is no way I should be driving the speed limit down a major thoroughfare like Highway 7 and hit a red light, Obama shut down NASA let’s get those out of work Rocket Scientist’s here to give us green lights.
