Issues from A to Z

A
Agriculture & Farms

I support legislation that benefits our California farms, farmers, ranchers and the agriculture industry overall. I support federal subsidies and insurance guarantees for our hard-working Californians.

Abortion

I do not support laws that permit the termination of pregnancy or gives government funds to entities that perform abortion-related services. I support the healthcare aspect of Plan Parenthood as long abortions will not be performed. The Constitutional right to life, liberty, and justice will be protected, regardless of race, age or gender.

Alcohol Sales

I support laws that will support our world-renowned California wineries and local breweries that will increase alcohol production, distribution, and sales. As Governor, I will work hard with our wineries and local breweries to create more jobs.

C
Civil Liberties and Civil Rights

I support laws that encourage equality and gender equality in the school, workplace, and society.

Citizen United
The decision by our Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission, (No. 08-205, 558 U.S. 310, 2010), is wrong. Our democracy has been compromised and weakened. Our electoral system is under direct attack that will undermine our democracy. I will fight day and night for a Constitutional Amendment to overturn Citizens United. Let’s make “We the People” become the rallying cry for Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike once again. Our children, veterans, and families deserve nothing less. Honest election reform starts with the candidates like myself, one who will not accept campaign contributions. Contact your candidates to lead by example like myself to tell them to return their campaign donations to the hard-working, tax-paying Americans. I am running for the elected office with my money, so, why can’t they? Washington DC, our democracy, and the election process are no longer for sale!

Crime & Punishment

I support legislation that will make it tough on violent criminals, including mandatory minimum sentences. I do not support the death penalty. I have seen, heard and experienced first-hand in our courts’ too many errors, injustices, and perjuries committed with impunity to allow the death penalty.

D

Drugs
I support laws that will legalize marijuana and tax it accordingly like tobacco and alcohol.

E

Education

I have lost elections because I have and will continue to fight to support “choice for parents” for where children attend school, including the use of government vouchers from the private sector for charter, homeschooling and private schools. Parents deserve to have a genuine choice in where and how their children are educated. The economies of European Union, India, and China will not wait for us to educate and prepare our children for the workforce of tomorrow. For America to remain competitive, we must create the most innovative, memorable and enduring educational environment possible. I have and will always advocate a safe and healthy learning environment for our students. Public dollars for public schools and private sector money for charter schools!

Energy Technology & Coal

I energetically support legislation that permits measured, reasonable and cost-effective forms of clean energy. I support renewable energy initiatives like but not limited to solar, wind, and geothermal.

F
First Amendment
I will pledge to remain faithful to our federal Constitution by working hard to protect and expand our First Amendment, Free Press Clause and Free Flow of Information Act.

G

Gambling & Casinos

I support laws that promote tourism to California like permit legal gambling, including casinos, lotteries, online wagering.

Guns & Ammunition

I support laws that permit individuals to own, possess, and carry legal weapons. I do not and will not support legislation that disarms law-abiding American citizens.

I

Infrastructure Repair & Investment

I will ferociously support legislation that ensures our California communities have the necessary federal funding for a robust infrastructure, including streets, sidewalks, clean water and sewer systems, aviation and rail.

J

Jobs & the Jobless
I will draft legislation that will encourage job creation and support government programs like job training that help those who are temporarily out of work.

L

Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness

I support legislation that promotes economic and individual liberties (i.e. personal freedom) with little or no support from or regulation by the government except what is required constitutionally.

P

Puerto Rico

It is unacceptable that Congress is playing politics with such a serious matter. As your next Governor, I will not wait to do my job after an election cycle. U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew wrote. “Unless Congress passes legislation that includes appropriate restructuring and oversight tools, a taxpayer-funded bailout may become the only legislative course available to address an escalating crisis.”

N

I advocate for a global nuclear weapon disarmament. The world free from nuclear weapons would make our national security stronger. MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) is one reason why nation states cannot benefit from maintaining a costly and dangerous arsenal of nuclear weaponry. Nuclear weapons will only help non-traditional and non-state actors like terrorist organizations.

O

Organized Labor Unions

In certain professions, I support organized labor and unionized work forces (police, fire, construction workers) and I believe that they benefit employers, employees, and the economy as a whole. Jobs in technology (Google, Microsoft, Uber) and education (K12, college, private) and the military cannot work successfully under the business model of organized labor and unionized workforces.

P

Public Transportation & Roads

I will draft bold new legislation that will support government-funded transportation projects including new roads and bridges, and public transportation of various forms including trains, car- and bike-sharing programs and aviation (LTA). I fully support self-driverless cars. Our companies in California like Google, Apple and others can and will be the global leaders of this new industry. Such an industry will create jobs and tax revenue for California. I will fight to legislate at the federal level to make it happen.

R

Religion & State Separation

I support interaction between Christian tenants and government policies in public society. In other words, separation of church and state will stand, yet a strong Christian influence since our founding has always been alive therefore I will legislate accordingly.

T

Tax & Spend

I support laws that decrease the amount our government collects from taxpayers to spend more responsibly on projects and services, including infrastructure, special tax districts for new buildings, and benefit programs for the disadvantaged (e.g., sick, poor, and elderly). We need people in Congress to help small businesses not hurt them by over taxation.
Technology
I am proud to be an avant-garde technologist inventing, testing and exploring bold new technology initiatives to empower our students, democracy, and government like never before. More than ever we need people like myself that are intimately aware, knowledgeable and experienced I

Z

Zika Virus

As your next Governor, one of my greatest concerns is for our families. As a parent, an educator, and a youth pastor I see that our public health policies are inadequate and dangerously underfunded. Successfully combating contagious diseases on the state, national and international level, my plan will be proactive, not reactive with a robust and adaptive public health policy. Read More
