Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Should education funding be directed to families through a voucher, scholarship, or education savings account so that parents can send their children to the school of their choice, including non-public schools? Y* Our Government Schools have become indoctrination centers for the left. Parents need the financial freedom to choose how, where, and what their children are taught.
2. Should marijuana be legalized for recreational use? N* It is a gateway drug. I have witnessed this first hand.
3. Should the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act be amended to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” which would require public schools and other public facilities to open up restrooms and locker rooms to members of the opposite sex? N* Up until five minutes ago, dividing children by biological gender was considered common sense and decency.
4. Should Pennsylvania enter into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, which would include a new carbon tax on electricity producers? N* This would destroy our economy and prosperity for no good reason.
5. Should increases in state government spending be limited to the rate of inflation plus population growth? Y* If that. We need to cut all of the waste in our budget before we increase spending another dollar.
6. Should our state constitution be amended to prevent taxpayer funding for elective abortions? Y* No one should be forced to pay for an abortion.
7. Should all voters be required to show identification before voting? Y* Mexico requires a picture and a thumbprint on their voter ID to cast a ballot. Why can't America do the same?
8. Should the state reduce police funding to increase funding for social services? N* Again, this was common sense until 5 minutes ago.
9. Should public schools be prohibited from allowing males who identify as females to compete in girls’ sports? Y* This is grossly unfair to girls. Why should all female athletes have to give up their dreams to protect the feeling of a few confused men?
10. Should schools have to post curriculum online for review by parents and taxpayers? Y* Absolutely! Why is this even considered controversial? Are they trying to hide something?
11. Should Pennsylvania municipalities be permitted to require a vaccine passport? N* This is not legal under our Constitution?
12. Should the gasoline tax be permanently reduced? Y* All my life I have been hearing that we need to raise taxes for "infrastructure", but it never gets spent on infrastructure. Time to cut taxes and spending.
