Shift focus away from conquest

Q: Your opinion on our VoteMatch statement, "Expand the armed forces"?

A: Another "no opinion", "none of the above", or "other approach". Expand armed forces only with shifted focus towards helping others and away from conquest. Expand the military only in smart directions End the wars. Stop the military from being the corporate policemen.

Wire tapping is a huge invasion of privacy

Q: What is your opinion on the statement, "The Patriot Act harms civil liberties"?

A: Agree. We need to be addressing the root causes of things such as terrorism, so that considering things like the Patriot Act becomes nonsense. The authorization of wire tapping, for example, without due cause, is a huge invasion of privacy to law abiding citizens and gives the central government too much power.

Expand armed forces with shifted focus

Q: What is your opinion on the statement, "Expand the armed forces"?

A: Support with qualifications. We need to shift our military's focus. We need to bring all non-treaty troops home immediately, and stop seeking to control oil supplies when we could be completely free of oil in a couple of years. The military needs to be strong, but the focus needs to be on helping people not killing and conquests.
