    States should decide most things since all states have different positions depending on what is more important of the people in that state.

    The Federal Government should decide most things since we are one country, and we should make sure we all have similar rules to ensure we are nationally cohesive.
  2. What is your stance on federal income taxation?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    We don't need to have income taxes. Most infrastructure costs our country needs should be paid for by private donations, volunteers, and businesses who support these causes.

    We should have income taxes to ensure all citizens are contributing their fair share, so the government can provide additional infrastructure we need, that donations and private businesses may not be able to adequately cover.
  3. What is your stance on tariffs?

    I support strong tariffs so we can obtain additional government revenue from other countries who wish to sell their imported goods to Americans, and because those other countries are benefiting by selling their goods here.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I do not support strong tariffs, because Americans should be able to buy goods from other countries at cheaper prices if we want to buy their goods, and it restricts free trade, and they may then institute reciprocal tariffs.
  4. What is your stance on federal transportation?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    I am against having a federal transportation system because it is expensive and unnecessary, and we cannot afford it. Most things people need, they can get from within their home state, and don't need to leave their home state.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I am for having a federal transportation system because, although it is expensive, it will benefit us all by making it easier to travel across the country, promoting interstate commerce, and national cohesiveness.
  5. What is your stance on land ownership and homestead rights?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    The government should not be giving away free land to people just because they are patriotic. It should be open to anybody regardless of whether they are patriotic or not, if they have the money to pay a proper market value for it.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Anybody who is a confirmed American patriot may be granted full ownership rights of unoccupied land, to improve the land, as a reward for being patriotic and helping the country expand and be prosperous.
