I want to immediately push for a "human right to life amendment." Our nation and Kentucky cannot be all they are called to be until we invite God back into the political process. It is time our nation makes a U-turn to God.
I believe our nation has to stop the rhetoric and begin measures to become completely energy independent of other nations, utilizing Kentucky's clean-coal resources and implementing a national WPA-like jobs plan. We must begin efforts now to this end.
We must implement term limits and stop stagnation and greed in Washington. Greed has led us to game the system: buying politics, bribing, gaining inside knowledge and technology scamming.
The bow and arrow was great technology until it posed problems when man learned he could use it against his neighbor. We need real checks, balances, reform and accountability.
Brilliant minds — put to wrong use, with wrong motives and no regulations — will fleece fields of sheep for personal gain. Blatant greed has, and will, continue to drive our nation to the brink of disaster, if we do not change our ways now. We must implement stricter regulatory conditions and severe monetary punishments for every violation.
We must continue to add to and support health care reform. We must systematically review all bureaucratic functions and their validity.
We need to consider a progressive war tax to reduce national debt.
Political parties must begin working together and stop partisanship. We have to stop pointing fingers and get to work.
