Public/government service: This is my first experience as a candidate for public/government service.

1) Why are you running for the N.H. House?

I was asked to run by N.H. Rep. Mark Warden, fellow N.H. Free State Project member

2. What are the three top issues facing state government and how would you deal with them?

Second Amendment rights (I support the NRA position 100 percent); drug prohibition (I support 100 percent legalization of all drugs); taxation (I support all spending cuts and property tax reduction, and exemption of property owners without children from tax liability for public/state/town school funding. I also support school vouchers, privatization of state and town highways and public services such as water/sewer, fire and police departments.

3). Is the state government doing too little, too much or enough to help the N.H. economy? Why?

As a member of the N.H. Free State Project, a true Libertarian and anarchocapitalist, I advocate 100 percent separation of economy and state.

4). What role should the state play in fighting heroin and prescription drug abuse?

I support 100 percent legalization of all drugs, but at the same time I do not advocate recreational use of drugs in general. I also advocate state funding of drug treatment clinics and counseling services for all N.H. residents.

5). What would be the first bill you sponsor in the next term?

I cannot answer this question at present, as I am a first-time candidate, and am not apprised of bills currently being considered. I will sponsor any and all bills supporting the following issues: Second Amendment rights, legalization of all drugs, and all spending cuts and property tax reduction, and exemption of property owners without children from tax liability for public/state/town school funding.
