Saturday, March 10, 2012, I attended a Rally given by the North Shore Tea Party so the Representatives of the Republican Presidential Candidates. I approached each Representative of the Candidates with the exception of one, that being the representative for Mitt Romney. I had tried to offer Mitt Romney’s Campaign Headquarters a chance to answer the questions I had asked of the other Representatives at the rally and as of this writing have not heard from the Romney campaign at all. I shall give the names of the Representatives and the questions I asked them along with the answers they gave for the Candidate they represented. Beginning with Rick Santorum and going through the ones that sent people to represent their campaigns at the North Shore Tea Party Rally.
Rick Santorum, Republican Candidate for President represented by; Michael Baham.
Question; Will Mr. Santorum do away with Obamacare?
Question; Will Mr. Santorum support the Veterans, especially the disabled veterans?
Question: Will Mr. Santorum allow drilling in Federal lands and waters?
Question; Will Mr. Santorum drop corporate tax to allow manufacturing come back to the
Answer; Yes, this is the cornerstone of his platform to bring manufacturing jobs
back to the United States.
Question; Will Mr. Santorum stop unfair trade with China?
Answer: I don’t know what his specific policy is, but his goal is to move US jobs back to
America from overseas.
Question; Will Mr. Santorum stop the export of gasoline and fuel from the United States
to other nations?
Answer; I can’t give you specific position on that but once again he supports America
becoming more energy independent and by doing that, that it’s basically
encouraging more drilling and refining in America.
Question; How will Mr. Santorum add jobs to America?
Answer; One is to drop taxes on industries to try and get them to move their
manufacturing jobs from overseas back to the United States.
The next Presidential candidate representative that I went to for the same questions was Mr. Austin Stukins. I asked the same questions as above and show the answers from him based upon Newt Gingrich’s platform presented in a brochure called; “21st Century Contract With America”.
Question; Will Mr. Gingrich do away with Obamacare?
Question; Will Mr. Gingrich support the Veterans, especially the disabled veterans?
Answer: Well, I’m a veteran of the Marine Corps I’m an 80% disabled veteran and I
know for certain beyond all reasonable doubt that Speaker Gingrich will. In
fact Speaker Gingrich was a big in education of some of our General grade
officers of the military so he real deep understanding and knowledge of the
inner workings of the military and Department of Defense, but more
importantly, he helped train our brightest minds and leadership today in the
military so no doubt, does he have the capabilities and credentials to take care
of our military and take away the red tape and beauracracy of the VA and take
care of our veterans.
Question; Will Mr. Gingrich drop corporate tax to allow manufacturing come back to the
Answer: Mr. Gingrich has a detailed plan to drop all the percentage rates down.
Question; Will Mr. Gingrich stop unfair trade with China?
Answer: Mr. Gingrich’s plan is to bring the jobs back to the States and encourage the
companies to keep their jobs here in the States instead of outsourcing them
overseas. Absolutly that speaks for itself, a drop in the corporate sales tax
would encourage them to stay here and produce in America.
Question; Will Mr. Gingrich stop the export of gasoline and fuel from the United States
to other nations?
Answer: If you look at Speaker Gingrich’s 30 minute video at www.Newt.org which
outlines his energy plans, it outlines the pressing behind what he is intending to
do with our natural resources here within the States. Ultimately were looking at
increasing domestic production here in the United States so that we can lower
our gasoline prices below even $2.50 a gallon within the span of his
presidency. The objective is to increase our domestic production so we can
effectively keep more here at home but in turn, return a profit on any exports we
do send out.
Question: Will Mr. Gingrich allow drilling on Federal lands and waters?
Answer: Yes, see his 30 minute video at www.Newt.org.
Question; How will Mr. Gingrich add jobs to America?
Answer: When you reduce the corporate sales tax, that reduces the burden on American
corporations and businesses and what that does is provide an insensitive for
them because they obviously they withstand more capitol, they retain more
capital, therefore they have the capability to hire more people, to bring more
folks home and keep them employed here within the United States. So in turn
that decreases un-employment and increases employment just by reducing the
corporate sales tax, which encourages them to keep jobs here within the United
The next interview I did was with, Charlie Davis, the State Chairman for Ron Paul.
Question; Will Mr. Ron Paul do away with Obamacare?
Question; Will Mr. Ron Paul support the Veterans, especially the disabled veterans?
Question: Will Mr. Ron Paul allow drilling in Federal and lands and waters?
Question; Will Mr. Ron Paul drop corporate tax to allow manufacturing come back to the
Answer: I believe his tax policies are to get everything to zero.
Question: Will Mr. Ron Paul stop unfair trade with China?
Answer: I don’t know his specific policies are about China.
Question: Will Mr. Ron Paul stop the export of gasoline and fuel oils from the United
Question: Will Mr. Ron Paul allow the building of more refineries in the United States?
Question: What is Mr. Ron Paul’s plan to add more jobs?
Answer: His plan to increase jobs in this country is based upon the people’s freedoms,
making it easier to start companies, you know most jobs are created by small
businesses, it is very difficult to start companies in this country. We encourage
people to get a job, as opposed to encourage people to employ other people.
We make college more expensive then it has to be. We make it very difficult to
grow your business. We over tax everybody. We do believe that you can
significantly improve the growth rate of all American businesses and start new
businesses, primarily by simplifying the tax code. Just make life a little more
fair, a little more common sense
Mr. Mitt Romney did not have a serious group of people at this event and only one lady was willing to speak for his campaign, but I was unable to get an interview from the lady because she left before I could get one. So for any information on Mitt Romney, you will have to go to his web site and find out what he represents.
I did get brochures from the other candidate representatives and they showed the ideas of the candidate from their positions. I used these few questions because I always hear people asking these questions when they discuss the politics of the day.
Of all the Candidates, Speaker Newt Gingrich is the only one with a 10 point plan for his Legislative Proposals.
After the people listened to the speakers from all the Candidates, they were asked to file into a room and cast their ballot for the Presidential candidate of their choice. The results were counted and they are as follows:
Newt Gingrich – 34%
Rick Santorum – 30%
Ron Paul – 30%
Mitt Romney – 6%
I believe in what one speaker used in her speech, Anyone BUT Obama! When anyone questions me about whom I would vote for, I always say, ABO! It is up to each individual to register and vote! This election is perhaps the most important election ever and if we as a people allow those now in control to continue, our very freedoms themselves will begin to vanish even more then they are now. Obama has given the wrong information to the people when he states that more drilling has happened under his watch, he uses the “PRIVATE” lands under development for OIL while under Obama’s watch, more then 50 percent reduction has developed in drilling all over the areas where our nation has OIL on Federal lands! Let the people use what we have and keep it here in our nation and we will never have to have any need for foreign Oil again!
I have presented this as information for you to use to make a choice for the Presidential candidate of your choice and one that will help our nation bring down the high price of gas and fuel, which will help bring down the cost of living.
