John Featherman on Civil Rights

2000 Libertarian Challenger for Senate (PA)


Patriot Act is an overreaching law

As a privacy advocate, I've spent my adult life helping victims of identity theft, stalking, & fraud. I've helped people protect their medical privacy, financial privacy, and communications privacy. So I promise to take my expertise as a privacy advocate and use it to protect your private affairs from being monitored by others. I will fight to protect you against overreaching laws such as the Patriot Act which promise you security, but stomp on your civil liberties & actually offer you less security.

Pro gay marriage and pro gay rights

I am pro-gay marriage and pro-gay rights. Although Rick Santorum has the right to differ with me, why does he have to degrade gays by offensively saying "It's not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be?"

Encourage more women to join the economy

Rick Santorum's attitudes about women and the workplace are well known. He extols the virtues of women staying at home, which is fine, but I know that in the real world, most women have to work. In fact, more women should be encouraged to join the economy - and make it grow. Women-owned businesses number 9.1 million and employ 27.5 million people and contribute $3.6 trillion to the U.S. economy. (Small Business Administration Website, 2005.)
