I like Mitt Romney as a person. I think he's a dignified person. But I have no common ground on economics. He doesn't worry about the Federal Reserve. He doesn't worry about foreign policy. He doesn't talk about civil liberties so I would have a hard time to expect him to ever invite me to campaign with him.

Maybe we ought to consider a Golden Rule in foreign policy: Don't do to other nations what we don't want happening to us. We endlessly bomb these countries and then we wonder why they get upset with us?

The obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty not coddle the world precipitating no-win wars while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.

Legitimate use of violence can only be that which is required in self-defense.

A system of capitalism presumes sound money not fiat money manipulated by a central bank. Capitalism cherishes voluntary contracts and interest rates that are determined by savings not credit creation by a central bank.

I am absolutely opposed to a national ID card. This is a total contradiction of what a free society is all about. The purpose of government is to protect the secrecy and the privacy of all individuals not the secrecy of government. We don't need a national ID card.

Deficits mean future tax increases, pure and simple. Deficit spending should be viewed as a tax on future generations and politicians who create deficits should be exposed as tax hikers.

All initiation of force is a violation of someone else's rights, whether initiated by an individual or the state for the benefit of an individual or group of individuals, even if it's supposed to be for the benefit of another individual or group of individuals.

I would say that I'm pretty mainstream.

Throughout the 20th century the Republican Party benefited from a non-interventionist foreign policy. Think of how Eisenhower came in to stop the Korean War. Think of how Nixon was elected to stop the mess in Vietnam.

As recent as the year 2000 we won elections by saying we shouldn't be the policemen of the world and that we should not be nation building. And its time we got those values back into this country.

1913 wasn't a very good year. 1913 gave us the income tax, the 16th amendment, and the IRS.

Prices are going up. Unemployment is continue to go up. And we have not had the necessary correction for the financial bubble created by our Federal Reserve system.

How did we win the election in the year 2000? We talked about a humble foreign policy: No nation-building, don't police the world. That's conservative it's Republican it's pro-American - it follows the founding fathers. And besides it follows the Constitution.
