  • 1. Would you support or oppose repeal of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that only recognizes heterosexual marriage?

    I propose replacing DOMA with the three laws of the Egg and Sperm Civil Union Compromise, to extend equal federal benefits to couples in state Civil Unions that are defined as “marriage minus conception rights”, to protect the right of all marriages to procreate with their own genes, and to prohibit same-sex couples from attempting to procreate with their own genes.

    2. Would you support or oppose a federal Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), which would repeal all state laws restricting abortion?

    I’d oppose that.

    3. Would you support a federal law, such as the proposed Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would override the religious freedom protections in Massachusetts’ employment non-discrimination laws?

    I oppose ENDA.

    4. Would you support or oppose the current “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” armed forces policy that prevents homosexuals from serving openly in the military?

    I think DADT should be repealed, and the chiefs of staff should be allowed to make their determination on allowing gays to serve in the military.

    5. Would you support or oppose conscience protections for health care workers beliefs?

    Support.

    6. Would you support or oppose federal legislation limiting the ability of government to take private land by eminent domain for other private development purposes?

    Hmm, I think it needs to be done sometimes, to reclaim property for local farms, but shouldn’t be done for strip malls.

    7. Would you support or oppose repeal of the federal estate tax (the so-called “death tax”)?

    Oppose

    8. Would you support or oppose inclusion of a public option in any federal government health care overhaul legislation?

    Oppose, though I support single payer universal coverage for basic medicine.  I oppose mandated coverage for radical and controversial procedures that serves as a blank check to the healthcare/biotech industry.

    9. Would you support or oppose taxpayer funding of abortion?

    Oppose

    10. Would you support or oppose amnesty for illegal aliens?

    Oppose
