Jenny lost her primary. Thank you for running, Jenny! See you next time — we’ll be here.
Jenny answers the Liberty Candidate questions below:
I) Re. the U.S. Financial System:
1. What is your view of the monetary system in the US today?
We need to abolish the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and return to a system of sound money, and follow the constitution, which provides for congress to coin money and regulate the value thereof.
2. What corrective actions could we take right now to improve the economy?
De-regulate in many areas, and legalize industrial hemp growing, marijuana and take the shackles off small businesses, so people can thrive and create without the interference of government.
3. Do you agree with the actions the Federal Reserve has taken to solve the financial crisis? If not, what could the Fed have done differently?
The Fed should never have bailed out the banks. These institutions should have been allowed to fail, and the market would have corrected itself.
4. Should the Federal Reserve be audited fully, no secrets, or does it need to keep some information under wraps?
YES Audit the Fed
II) Re. Foreign Policy:
1. What is your opinion on current US foreign policy?
Bring the troops home. Stop foreign entanglements.
2. How should we fight a “war on terror”?
We should secure our own borders.
3. Should the U.S. occupy other countries? If not, would you push to close all bases? Are there any you would keep open?
No. Would push to close all bases. Can’t think of any, but there could be exceptions.
4. Should the U.S. maintain its standing army?
5. Is the Patriot Act necessary to protect America? If not, would you vote to repeal it?
No, the Patriot Act is unecessary. I would vote to repeal it.
III) Re. Personal Liberty:
1. What information may the U.S. government legally gather about its citizens? When would it be necessary to overstep those boundaries?
Only what is expressly allowed in the constitution for purposes of registering voters.
2. What limits, if any, should be placed on the U.S. government’s ability to search its citizens without a warrant?
Our constitution does not allow for searches and seizures without a warrant.
3. Ought the U.S. government be allowed to protect its citizens’ health by outlawing foods it considers unsafe, or to force medicate (i.e., fluoridation) or force vaccinate citizens?
No, it should not.
4. What controls, if any, should be placed on the right to own a gun? Is there an effective way to keep guns out of the hands of madmen and criminals without encroaching on the rights of free, law-abiding citizens?
None. Yes, by prosecuting criminals for the crimes they commit.
IV) Re. U.S. Sovereignty:
1. Is our involvement in and subjugation to global organizations, such as WHO (World Health Organization), NATO, the UN, etc., a benefit to U.S. citizens?
NO, it is to no benefit to be subjugated. Dialogue is always desirable, but international mandates cannot work as by design they override national sovereignty.
2. Would you work to repeal international agreements that purport to hold U.S. citizens and/or property under its jurisdiction, or do you think there might be times when benefits outweigh concessions?
I would work to repeal.
3. Are trade agreements with other nations, i.e., NAFTA, CAFTA, good for U.S. citizens?
In general they are not good, but if they are in place the provisions beneficial to American workers must be enforced. Currently the opposite is often occurring, where only provisions beneficial to multi-national corporations are enforced, while provisions built into GATT and NAFTA to protect American jobs are not enforced. These treaties must either be abolished entirely, or this kind of cherry picking needs to stop asap.
4. Should the U.S. give foreign aid to other countries? If yes, for what purposes would it be justified? If not all countries, which would you continue to support?
The US should stop all foreign aid, except possibly in the case of an emergent situation such as a natural disaster where food and medicine are needed asap, and then in conjunction with a fund accepting donations from the public, and overseen and monitored, and for a very limited time frame. It is appalling to note that such relief was not readily available to during the Katrina disaster here at home, while aid for foreign catastrophes have been immediately made available. We must always help our own first.
V) Re. State Sovereignty:
1. When does state law take precedent over federal law?
In almost everything except as regards to the defense of the land, and the protection of personal liberties.
2. Would you stand up to the federal government and demand that it stay within the bounds of its enumerated powers and out of state business?
3. Do federal officers have the right to arrest non-military citizens within the individual states for any crimes?
NO – unless it is a federal violation such as immigration or treason
VI) Illegal Immigration:
1. What do you see as the #1 problem with illegal immigration?
Poor border security -
2. What actions could we take to stop illegal immigrants from taking advantage of social services?
Corruption within the system needs to stop. Immigrants are receiving social security who had not paid a penny into it.
VII) Misc. Questions:
1. If you could make one amendment to the U.S. Constitution, what would it be?
2. Would you vote to end government subsidies to private industry?
No subsidies ever, never, no, nothing. Crony capitalism has to go.
3. What should our government’s action be against Julian Assange, if any?
4. Do you know what Agenda 21/Sustainable Development and the Communitarian agenda is? Do you support it? Why or why not?
I do not support Agenda 21. It is a UN mandate which overrides national sovereignty, and is completely antithetical to individual freedom.
