Two biggest issues: Balance budget amendment, term limits, cut federal spending, Arizona lands restored to Arizona, remove federal control of schools, seal our borders and no legal status but real immigration reform. My concern is all the laws and regulations that are passed that have no constitutional foundation.

Budget priorities: Balanced budget amendment.

Fiscal philosophy: Close unconstitutional departments and agencies, freeze all hiring by the federal government for two years and audit the books of all departments to improve those that are constitutionally based.

Common Core: Our highways and roads.

Gifts to elected officials: President John F Kennedy. He took a stand against Russia and equality for all.

Transparency in government: I speak with various friends in the GOP and retired military along with business associates, for advice and counsel.
