Issues

 

I've listed some issues here that are important to me and that will give you some idea of how I might vote if elected to Congress for Washington State's 2nd Congressional District. I will add more issues soon. Thanks for checking them out!

U.S. Foreign Policy

The United States should not waste precious blood and treasure abroad. Foolish foreign engagements disrespect the soldier and add more debt, which now stands at over $18 trillion. The peoples of other countries must choose and be responsible for their own governments. The United States must seek diplomacy with all nations but be cautious of being a patron to governments or peoples.


Trade

Although international commerce is important to the United States, I believe that the United States should be cautious of trade agreements with countries that do not have a similar standard of living (wages, laws, and regulations).


Taxes and Spending

We must collect sufficient revenue to pay for the federal government and not overspend. We do neither, which is why we have huge deficits.


Marijuana

I believe that it is time to repeal the federal prohibition of marijuana.


Native Tribes

I believe that Congress should move towards giving Native Tribes more sovereignty over their affairs. Furthermore, I would like to work with Native Tribes to help facilitate more cooperation from the federal government in matters that affect their communities.


The Military

Roughly 15% of federal expenditures is for national defense (excludes veterans services and benefits). This percentage is definitely high enough to consider significant spending cuts.
