My hat is tipped to you for having the patience to fill out questionnaire. I hate getting those in the mail and the form goes straight to recycling. .

Thanks my2¢ This one was by email.
When I have taken the ones by mail, filled them out and added all my comments,
I'm sure it's received just like you said, where the form goes 'straight to recycling.'

Well, at least YOU recycle. And it doesn't go completely to waste!

  1. Do you think Donald Trump should spend more time delivering a positive message or attacking Hillary’s failed record and policies?
    • Positive
    • Anti-Hillary
    • Both equally [Trump needs to address the issues more, specifically his plans for these things, hammer on that list. At the same time, he needs to get the information the media is hiding out there. It's a tall order, but it must be done.]
    • Other, please specify:
  2. How would you rate Donald Trump’s campaign?
    • Too conservative [I dislike that he's pandered to the church, biggest turn off for me - I know from his many public statements in the past that while he doesn't "agree" with these things for himself he didn't care what folks did. Now he's gone anti-abortion /AND/ he's pushing that belief onto the people [were he to be elected] which irks me. At least he didn't turn on his LGBT "tolerance" stance.]
    • Too liberal
    • Too moderate
    • Just right
    • Other, please specify:
  3. How do you identify yourself politically?
    • Conservative
    • Moderate
    • Tea Party Conservative
    • Libertarian
    • Other, please specify: [Independent, no one party can represent me. See my sig.]
  4. Balancing the budget and reining in our $19 trillion debt are critical to sustaining our country.
    • Strongly Agree X
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  5. New immigrants from countries rife with terrorism should undergo vetting.
    • Strongly Agree X
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  6. Donald Trump should appoint justices in the mold of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
    • Strongly Agree
    • Agree X [However, balance must be maintained in order to serve the diverse opinions of all American's, this includes those religious silly's I might disagree with on a number of issues. The SCOTUS is not about /parties/ it is about representing all American belief's, which means it must have representation of all parties, including the greenies, socialists, liberals, etc. I think ALL must be in there in a mix.]
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  7. Donald Trump should roll back Obama’s executive orders that protect illegal immigration, add more crushing regulations, and endanger the Second Amendment.
    • Strongly Agree X
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree

  10. Trump should focus on the Democrats’ broken promises and failed policies to win the trust of voters in inner cities.
    • Strongly Agree
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree X [It's not that I think that's wrong, merely that I don't think it will resonate with any of them so thus I feel it's a waste of time]
    • Strongly Disagree
  11. Empowering charter schools and passing school choice policies will help impoverished communities.
    • Strongly Agree
    • Agree
    • No Opinion X [I think it's a good idea, however, that alone will not help these communities lift themselves out of poverty.]
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  12. The rise of anti-police rhetoric is leading to an increase in violence against our men and women in uniform.
    • Strongly Agree X
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  13. Republicans must do a better job explaining the burden and disastrous consequences of big government regulations.
    • Strongly Agree X [So true, the average joe on the street has /no/ clue how all these "feel good" regulations effect businesses non-proportionately to the "good" they do - these regulations often end up doing more harm than good, in that business owners are required to hire specialists, pay for inspections, etc. which then lowers the amounts they can afford to put into their employees, as well as eats away at their desire to even bother doing business and wading through the regulation library when they can go to another country and pay less on taxes, less on wages, and not have to deal with ridiculous government tape.]
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  14. Our platform needs to distinguish between free-market capitalism and crony capitalism.
    • Strongly Agree X
    • Agree

    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  15. Taxpayers should never be forced to fund abortions.
    • Strongly Agree
    • Agree X [And they don't right now no matter how the religious right wants to spin it.]
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  16. Regulations that make it hard to do business in America must also be cut in order to incentivize companies to move back home.
    • Strongly Agree X [Oh hey, see above -- I should have expected this to be a separate question, Trumps in business too after all so he sees the same thing I do]
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  17. America should continue to support Israel in our mission to combat radical Islamic terrorism, our only ally in the Middle East.
    • Strongly Agree
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree X [I'm sick and tired of playing police to the world. Frankly we can no longer afford it, let our damned allies pick up some of the slack here.]
    • Strongly Disagree
  18. The Iran Deal must be ripped up and renegotiated.
    • Strongly Agree X [Iran and nukes is just a scary idea considering the historic instability over there. I mean it's bad enough Israel has them. Personally as a child of the cold war on the front lines I'd like to see /no one/ have them, but thats a pipe dream anymore]
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  19. Trump must rebuild our military that has been decimated by Obama.
    • Strongly Agree

    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  20. America should stop nation-building abroad while so many at home are struggling.
    • Strongly Agree X [We need to fix our house before we can fix anyone elses, and clearly from the corruption coming forward we've got some serious cracks in the foundation atm]
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  21. Trump should work with Congress to investigate the rampant spread of corruption at the VA, the EPA, and the IRS.
    • Strongly Agree X [Add in DOJ, FBI, CIA, NSA while you're at it]
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  22. Building the Keystone pipeline is critical to harnessing American energy and bringing jobs back to our country.
    • Strongly Agree
    • Agree
    • No Opinion X [On the one hand, I kind of consider this a states rights issue, on the other, there is enough oil up here in Alaska that we don't need this, help Alaskan's take /back/ their oil from the big three and /we/ can provide this, and possibly even sell a bit on the side. We also have the open space, without claims like the Keystone apparently faces, that we could tap a line to Canada easy as pie - or you know just port it out of Valdez which is already an oil port. I'm a bit on the fence.]
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  23. Traditional American values are currently under assault in America.
    • Strongly Agree
    • Agree X [EDIT - I want to clarify that I am thinking about success, capitalism, exceptionalism, etc. I do /not/ agree with "traditional American values" in the "religious" senses of SSM, LGBT, etc. Those are called "freedom of choice" items in my world.]
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree

    • Strongly Agree X
    • Agree
    • No Opinion

  25. China’s currency manipulation must be dealt with severely.
    • Strongly Agree
    • Agree X [We must get better at our global game. China is mopping the floor with us and laughing about it]
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  26. In order to reduce crony government corruption, senior officials in a Trump administration should agree not to accept speaking fees from corporations and lobbyists for five years after serving.
    • Strongly Agree
    • Agree
    • No Opinion X [I like the gesture, but these folks do deserve to be paid for their work. On the fence.]
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  27. Simplifying our complicated tax system, lowering taxes for everyone, and ending the death tax will lead to economic prosperity.
    • Strongly Agree X [Our tax system is a disaster and the death tax is a disgusting method of theft from grieving families. Just pathetic that we EVER thought it was appropriate to steal from people who's loved ones have just died.]
    • Agree
    • No Opinion
    • Disagree
    • Strongly Disagree
  28. Government programs should be forced to prove their worth or else they will be cut.
    • Strongly Agree X [Why shouldn't the government have to deal with the same reality as its people? If something isn't working then it's gone, be you an individual or a business. Perspective: Land line phones in residences, a ton of folks are getting rid of them because it's not what they're using - aka not worth spending money on. Same should apply in government.]

  30. Which of the following are your biggest concerns personally? (Select as many that apply)
    • Job security
    • Mortgage payments
    • Social security X [God that's useless, shift that out immediately and let folks handle their own retirement plans.]
    • Medicare/Medicaid X [More government blundering]
    • Saving for children’s education
    • Saving for retirement [We need to phase out SS and government retirements and pensions]
    • Social issues
    • Terrorist threats X [We cannot ignore this stuff]
    • Cost of living
    • Increased crime X [DC and it's related entities needs to stop pushing a war on cops narrative and stand behind the laws of this country - which includes applying pressure on states to follow up on seeing justice served for crimes, including riots, gang violence, etc.]
    • Veteran aid X [Good lord the VA is a disgrace, I almost want to scrap the thing and start over but we can't have a lapse]
