The Campaign Begins
Since this is my first piece of campaign material on my 24-year journey to become President, I think it's best to just give some information about me politically. I'll keep my answers to one sentence.
Name: Brian [XXXXXXXXXX]
Birth Date: 10/18/1982 (Note: The Constitution states that the President must be at least 35 years of age. I turn 35 in 2017. The following Presidential election year is 2020.)
Registered Residence: Santa Barbara County, California
Registered Party: Republican
More accurate party association: Libertarian
Stances on Election 2004 Issues:
War in Iraq: Would have voted against it in Congress, wouldn't have gone it. Currently, we should diminish our presence.
North Korea: There's no good solution. Use diplomacy; try to get other countries (such as China and Japan) to seek overthrow of uncooperative government.
Iran: Sanctions. Except for nuclear developement, we have no reason to interfere
Social Security: Do away with it, or follow Bush's privatization plan.
Healthcare: Should not have governmental interference, or should be regulated like utilities.
Gay Marriage: Marriage is historically left to the states, so it is the states' decision. However, would SUPPORT a constitutional amendment ALLOWING same-sex marriage.
Stem Cell Research: Full speed ahead, even though we're not prepared for the consequences.
Loss of Jobs in Manufacturing, Programming: No short-term solution. Long-term solution is specialization in areas of competitive advantage.
Bad Habit: Not finishing what I start
