I guess I would fall under columnist Phil Wieland's category as one of the "Republican right wingnuts (who) attribute the nation's ills to too many gays and not enough guns."

I also believe in a balanced budget, term limits for Congress and the Supreme Court, money limits in lawsuits, a national sales tax in place of an income tax (so people would pay according to what they buy and drug lords would also have to pay), elimination of benefits for illegal aliens, and creation of new jobs for those in the United States and penalties for those who move businesses overseas.

Finally, I believe all government officials should live under the same health care laws, same retirement programs and same pay standards as "we the people."

Funny how Wieland categorizes me as only a person who cares about "gays and guns."
