21 Do you support or oppose sustainable development as defined in U.N. Agenda 21? Why?  
  I strongly oppose U.N. Agenda 21. It takes away individual property rights and individual freedoms. It must be stopped.
22 If elected, what will your top three legislative priorities be?  
  1) Jobs 2) The Economy 3) A Disciplined overhaul of the Government. In order to create jobs you must unleash the economy. The role of the Federal Government is to encourage economic growth by ensuring conditions that allow all businesses to thrive. Than means less legislation, less regulation, lower taxes and business friendly policies. It is not the roll of government to create jobs. It is the roll of business to create jobs. There must be a disciplined scouring to rid the Government of out dated policy, waste, fraud and abuse. Government needs to be brought into the 21st Century. The savings alone could zero out the deficit. And going forward all Budgets should be balanced and pay as you go.
