Policies? *17% flat tax, no national sales tax *Establish government spending max based on percentage of GDP *Fair trade before free trade, to protect American jobs *Close most tax loopholes (would allow a few tax incentives, like businesses who use American suppliers) *Eliminate all energy subsidies (including Exxon and Solyndra) *Repatriate the production of all military equipment *Supports limited domestic drilling *Repeal Obama's HC bill *Reinstate Glass-Segal act *Reforming the Department of Education into a "small professional body" Why are spending so much time talking about batshit crazy Bachmann and the secessionist Perry?
