What one specific issue do you think deserves your immediate attention in Washington, and how do you plan to address it?

The Federal Government should , in general, do less. They should set as an objective to move toward doing only the jobs assigned to it by the Constitution.

Please provide a one to two paragraph explanation of your stance on each of the following: Immigration, Health Care, Economic Issues, Foreign Policy.

We need to reduce even our legal immigration. America does not need more people. The government should not provide healthcare. The government can do very little to promote prosperity. The best it can do is reduce regulations, and let the economy boom by itself. We should try to be friends with everyone. This means being less destructive to the Arab States.

This election season has seen a lot of divisiveness. If elected, how do you propose working with the other party to address the issues facing Kansans today?

There are very few “Kansas” issues. There are even less Federal “Kansas” issues.
