Give government necessary tools to fight terrorism

The government must have the tools necessary to root out terrorist cells in America. I fully support President Bush's anti-terrorism plans.

The PATRIOT Act needs to be reenacted

I support for the president's program against terrorism. I totally support giving powers to the president to surveil (sic) people. Well, actually it's through Congress that they do that, but I think the PATRIOT Act needs to be reenacted. I think Mrs. Feinstein and the other Democrats are on the wrong side. I mean, they're on the side of saying, "Hey, whatever's bad for America is good for us." That's the wrong side to be on.

Re-enact the PATRIOT Act

Q: What would be your main priorities if elected?

A: [One would be] support for the president's program against terrorism. I totally support giving powers to the president to surveil people. The PATRIOT Act needs to be reenacted. Mrs. Feinstein and the other Democrats are on the wrong side, saying, "Hey, whatever's bad for America is good for us." Rank and file Democrats are very patriotic. They love this country and support the military. Diane Feinstein and her cohorts don't. It's as simple as that.

Extend election time limit for overseas military voting

BILL NUMBER: AB 187 INTRODUCED BY Assembly Member Mountjoy Overseas military voting.

Existing law requires that absentee ballots cast pursuant to these procedures be received by the county elections official not later than 8 p.m. on the day of a federal election. This bill would extend the time period for the receipt of absentee ballots of active military personnel stationed overseas that are postmarked or signed and dated by the day of a federal election to not later than 10 days after the election. This bill would require that the identification envelopes for all overseas absentee ballots be plainly marked as such and contain a declaration, under penalty of perjury, by the voter stating that he or she completed the ballot on or before the day of the election. This bill would provide that its provisions shall become operative on January 1, 2006. This bill, by adding to the duties of county elections officials, would impose a state-mandated local program.
