What makes you qualified to be a U.S. senator?
My years of experience have prepared me well for this office. I developed extensive skills throughout my life that even in distressed situations I’m able to handle finding solutions and making important decision’s on issues that pertain to this position. I bring leadership abilities, strategies, patience, problem-solving.
Do you support the use of United States combat troops in Syria to defeat ISIS, or to end the rule of President Bashar al-Assad?
Yes to defeat ISIS. Since America has created this problem by supporting rebels to defeat unfriendly regimes against America throughout the Middle East and as I said if we pull out the troops back in 2012 there will be chaos. So yes we have to put an end to ISIS.
Do you support the continued use of U.S. troops in Iraq, or should those troops be withdrawn?
We need to keep the U.S. troops in Iraq or else there will be chaos again, and Iraq will fall and ISIS will continue its reign of terror. Again, we need to put an end to ISIS before another 9-11 happens on our soil.
Do you support the continued use of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, or should those troops be withdrawn?
Yes, I support the continued use of U.S troops in Afghanistan. Again, we pull out there will be chaos and the terrorist will flourish and Afghanistan will be taken over by the terrorist. As a veteran of the Army during the Vietnam War I approve keeping the troops there.
Should the United States recognize a Native Hawaiian government through an administrative rule or an act of Congress?
Yes. They should have the right to self govern themselves if this is truly what they want. But it will be a nation within a nation, the United States of America will not recognize total sovereignty.
What changes should be made to the federal Affordable Care Act?
We should make changes by creating legislation to expand health care coverage and improve its affordability, particularly for low and moderate income Americans. We need to improve the access and affordability to create more provider networks, enhance competition among insurers, improve consumers experience and strength the medicaid program.
Should the federal government legalize marijuana?
Yes, because marijuana has many medical benefits to people who have cancer and other diseases that are helpful to these patients. Marijuana should be legalized, taxed and treated like alcohol products.
