  • I would bring our troops home. It is costing us alot of money to build things for people overseas and they blow it up the next day. I would not take a paycheck as president and the senate and congress would go without their paychecks for 2 months.

  • I would lower the taxes that business pay in America to the same amount that most other countries have them pay. This would bring business back to the US and stop them from moving overseas. It would create jobs and allow room for expansion.

    did you know that Ireland only requires business to pay something like 12% in taxes and the US says 35%. Many major corporations are moving their headquarters to other countries so they are exempt from paying US taxes. It is creating hundreds of thousands of jobs in other countries while the US is losing jobs. We need to change the way we look at business in this country. We are losing the ability to be competitive in the world business market.

  • Stop all the pay raises for government officials along with the fat pensions for sitting on their butts passing laws that are only of interest to them and pay our military personnel higher wages so that they won't be on food stamps and government programs due to low income!
