Platform Issues

Get Out of Debt Plan

Joan is proposing a “Get Out of Debt Plan” that is a step toward this goal and toward trying to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor. Her idea is that if a poor/middle-class person will agree to try and improve their lives for one year (stop drinking, doing drugs, smoking, gambling, etc., whatever their struggle might be), then a rich person agrees to pay off their debt up to a certain amount. In order to achieve this, the person would agree to be monitored (i.e., wear a bracelet), which puts surveillance to good use since this would mean consent is given by a person. If they complete their agreement in a year, their debt is paid and they receive a “G.O.O.D. Guy” or “G.O.O.D. Gal” certificate signed by the President (which also stands for “Get.Out.Of.Debt.”). This is a plan that would give people hope and encouragement in trying to start anew which is what they need in such difficult times as these.

Anti-LGBT policy enactment

"Marriage is between a man and a woman, so I can’t condone this sin. LGBT people represent only 4.5% of the total population, and I believe in ‘live and let live.’ However, we should not be passing laws that favor a small minority. "

Criminal Justice Reform

" Criminal justice reform is great, but what are we doing to ensure that NO innocent people end up in jail in the first place? Nothing that I can see since we have too many attorneys in the office. Lawyers become judges become politicians, and this is the problem. Overhauling the legal system will fix it. "

Right to Bear Arms

"I support the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, especially with the coronavirus pandemic which was begun by the Deep State. In fact, I support the Constitution entirely. "

Less Government interference

"I am in favor of less government. In general, we are passing too many laws that restrict our freedoms and keep us from being the “land of the free. "

Increased Veteran Support

" I support veterans, since my father was a fighter pilot killed in Viet Nam in 1965. In 2006, I found out that he died trying to save the life of his wingman. Senator Inhofe has been trying to help me get him the Medal of Honor and I’ve been grateful for his assistance. "
