Abortion: Overturn Roe v. Wade and allow the states legislate abortion as they see fit.

Government Spending: Cut cut cut cut cut. And, furthermore, cut. We need to add a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution.

Education: Significantly revamp or do away with the federal Department of Education and hand education back to states/school districts. Promote vouchers, charter schools, etc.

Energy: Drill, baby, drill. Also, we need to find a way to promote market-based investment in alternative fuels. Maybe a carbon tax?

Environment: Again, we need to find market based solutions to keep our environment clean. The EPA needs to be significantly revamped, if not done away with entirely.

Gun control: "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

Healthcare: Repeal ObamaCare, allow interstate competition between companies, etc., etc.

Immigration: Build border fences, but give illegals a chance to assimilate.

Defense Spending: Focus on our own defense, and not on that of fully competent allies like Germany. Root out as much waste as possible.

Iran: We definitely need to be prepared if need be.

Military Intervention: Intervention should occur only when our nation's security is threatened directly by the actions of another nation.

Role of Goverment: To keep the people safe, basically.

Trade: Free trade is definitely a good thing, but outsourcing should be discouraged.

Tax Rates: A flat tax rate of 10% for those making under $250,000/year, and 20% for those making above $250,000/year.

Marriage: Marriage is fundamentally a legal covenant, and should be between any two individuals who love each other. However, it shouldn't be a national issue. States should be able to define marriage as they see fit.

Social Security: Let people opt out, or hold private accounts if they so choose.

Unions: I suppose right-to-work. Also, government employees should have no right to unionize.

War at Terror: At this point...no.
