“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”
~ John Quincy Adams

Economy: “Strong fiscally conservative principles and beliefs that our economic recovery should be left to the free market through businesses and individuals – not the federal government.” ~ Peter Schiff, Connecticut
Personal Liberty: “The Federal Government must return to its constitutionally enumerated powers and restore our inalienable rights. America can prosper, preserve personal liberty, and repel national security threats without intruding into the personal lives of its citizens.” ~ Rand Paul, U.S. Senate 2011, Kentucky
Foreign Policy: “Taken as a whole, America’s current foreign policy is a grossly unconstitutional one that we cannot afford. It has put us in a situation where children born today are burdened with an impossible debt. It is premised on a twisted version of American exceptionalism which assumes we have the right to police the world without respect for the sovereignty of fellow nations. If we hope to be respected in the global community, we would be wise to heed the advice of Thomas Jefferson and seek, ‘peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations – entangling alliances with none.’ “ ~ Adam Kokesh, New Mexico
Ending the Federal Reserve: “What goes on at the Fed is a clear example of the infringement upon our liberty and national sovereignty through Congressional delegation of its authority. Now, the Fed refuses to even let us see how much and to whom our money has been loaned or how much they have indebted the American People. They do so by rightly asserting that they are a private entity and therefore do not have to comply with orders to open their books. Our Congress has completely lost control over the creation of money and credit and now we are all going to pay the price of that abrogation of their duty.” ~ R.J. Harris, Oklahoma
2nd Amendment: ” ‘To keep and bear Arms.’ That means, you can obtain them, keep them, and carry them. The idea that you can only have an unloaded gun in your closet under lock and key with the ammunition in a foreign country is ridiculous. Load your gun, put it in your holster, and leave the house. There is no point to keeping a gun you cannot access when you need it. If anyone has time to go home and get their gun, they probably didn’t need it in the first place.” ~ Chris Cantwell, New York
Energy: “I have been waiting for over 30 years for Democrats and Republicans to come together on at least this vital national security issue to move our country towards complete energy independence. The fact that we are still waiting is a national disgrace. We need to open up the Outer Continental Shelf for drilling. We need to fast track the Nuclear Regulatory Commission application process to help speed up nuclear plant construction. I favor tax incentives for alternative energy, but I oppose subsidies, which has the effect of allowing the government to choose winners and losers.
Finally our country is sitting on top of 500 years of coal. I favor tax incentives for research into finding cheaper liquefaction and gasification processes for coal. These are just a few of the steps that we can take to move us towards complete energy independence. Additionally the private businesses that would be involved in the exploration and develpment of these American energy sources would also be creating real, high paying, permanent jobs for real Americans in real congressional districts.” ~ Michael McPadden, Virginia
