- In racist preference, gives leniency to illegal-alien [catholic] latinos for the sake of "family"
- Not willing to directly answer question of whether children born to illegals in America are automatically citizens
- Says voters should judge candidates on moral-character qualities rather than by their [sectarian] religious faith

- Remove American troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq and put them on the U.S. southern border
- Engage in selective imports-regulated trade with countries friendly to America
- Relocate United Nations off United States territory

- Supports adding 9% federal income tax to sales taxes of States having such taxes
- Replace current dependence on (so-called "entitlement/welfare") govt-managed (secure-Trust-Fund-guaranteed?) Social Security with Individual IRAs funded by each presently-unemployed potential retiree (magically being apportioned a government-designated job?) attempting Wall-Street-gambling "investments" for and by themselves plus (being given personal-debt-exacerbating, special-reparations-for-blacks/women, bank-loan seed money not backed by adequate collateral?) experimentation with (boondoggle?) business-startup-and-management enterprises (required for lazy-bum handicapped languishing in hospices?)


- Was a [so-called] "liberal" on social issues, but has flipflopped in recent years to being a "conservative"
