  • What is your overall position on the Vietnam War?
    We keep emboldening the enemy in Vietnam with half-measures. We will never win this war unless we escalate it.
  • If elected, what will you do to get the student and Negro riots in this country under control?
    There has been a total abdication of responsibility in this country over the past five years. The riots in Detroit and Newark are simply the final straw in what we can accept. I will crack down severely on disorder and nominate judges who will overturn atrocious decisions such as Miranda v. Arizona.
  • What is your opinion of Lyndon Johnson's new Medicare program?
    Medicare is the first step towards socialized medicine in this country. We need to end this program as soon as possible and return health care to the states and to the people.
  • Are you satisfied with this nation's economic performance over the previous five years?
    How can anyone be satisfied with the course our nation has taken? Inflation is killing the value of the dollar and the gold standard itself is at risk. Unemployment is highest under the Johnson Administration among the very people he claims to care about the most.
  • Are you satisfied with the progress of desegregation in this country since the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964?
    Whites and Negroes are naturally unsuited to mix together in society. The entire premise of desegregation is a farce, and my campaign is dedicated to ending this misguided policy.
  • Would you consider sending troops into Laos, Cambodia, or North Vietnam to more aggressively combat the flow of Communist troops into South Vietnam?
    I can't believe we haven't done this yet. How on earth are we supposed to win a war against an insidious enemy with one hand tied behind our back?
  • With all of the new programs that have implemented over the past five years, do you still believe there is room for the federal government to expand its responsibilities?
    My God, this is a truly frightening question. Responsibilities of government need to be turned over to the states, and the federal government needs to be drastically reduced in size.
  • What do you think about the efforts of the AFL-CIO and other large unions? Do they have a positive effect on America?
    We should always be wary of the corruption inherent in these large unions. I cannot say that I'm a supporter of the AFL-CIO.
  • Do you believe that the newly implemented federal welfare programs will be effective?
    Ineffective, immoral, and illegal. Intellectuals in improperly influential offices are destroying the United States.
  • Some have proposed implementing an Environmental Protection Agency at the federal level to combat industrial pollution. Would you support this as President?
    This is one of the most dangerous ideas I can think of. A federal agency to combat pollution will hurt business, increase unemployment, and undermine the wages of our workers.
  • Should Lyndon Johnson have been able to prevent the Tet Offensive?
    The Tet Offensive was an absolute disaster for the North Vietnamese. Why should it have been prevented?
  • What is the maximum number of troops that you would commit to Vietnam?
    I will provide as many troops as our generals say they need. One of the reasons we are losing this war right now is because we are not fully committed to it.
  • Do you support opening a new dialogue with our Communist adversaries, such as the Soviet Union and China?
    You know, if some miracle occurred and these Communist adversaries were finally ready to explore a new system and allow democracy within their borders, we would be the first to welcome them to the free world.
  • What is your opinion on the legality of abortion? Would you attempt to legalize or prohibit this practice at the federal level?
    Abortion is an evil, murderous practice. I will stand firm against any attempts to protect this barbarism at the federal level.
  • Did the Supreme Court overstep its bounds in Loving v. Virginia by declaring state miscegenation statutes unconstitutional?
    My God, someone has to step in and protect good order in this society. This is just another instance of federal judges taking control over an issue that's simply none of their business.
  • Can you comment on the newly created Head Start program?
    The Head Start program is another product of the out-of-touch, intellectual elite. It's a waste of money.
  • Do you think the Department of Housing and Urban Development, newly created by Lyndon Johnson, serves a useful purpose in American life?
    Can we just clarify my position on all of these fancy programs Johnson created? I oppose all of them. That includes HUD which will infringe on the rights of property owners and increase crime in our working class neighborhoods.
  • If elected as President, what would you do to lower the inflation rate in this country, which currently stands at over 4%?
    Our inflation is being caused by all of this Great Society nonsense that Johnson passed. I will slash these programs, slash our deficits, and end our inflation problem overnight.
  • What is your opinion of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965? Is it a good idea to liberalize our immigration policy and to outlaw national origin quotas?
    The Negro problem apparently wasn't enough for our federal bureaucrats, because they decided to add Mexicans and Orientals to the list as well. I oppose new immigration to this country.
  • Would you consider a constitutional amendment to outlaw the birth control pill, given the Supreme Court's decisions on that issue?
    The Pill does not augur well for the social health of this nation. If we could get the support I'd love to see an Amendment that settles this issue once and for all.
  • What is the overall theme of your campaign, remembering that the Democratic Party is underfunded and severely divided?
    The Johnson Administration has done a lot of good things for this country. I will continue his policies as President.
  • What will you say in your acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention in Chicago? Will you address the rioting outside and the legacy of Robert Kennedy?
    It is not worth addressing the violence outside. I will make a general pledge for law and order and focus my speech on the trials of the working man.
  • Richard Nixon, perhaps remembering the debacle of 1960, has expressed little interest in a debate this election. Will you challenge him to one?
    This is a real opening for us. I will challenge Nixon on this issue relentlessly.
  • On the weekend before the election, Lyndon Johnson's peace negotiations have collapsed with the North Vietnamese. Even worse, there are rumors that a Nixon operative has sabotaged the negotiations. Nixon swears to you on his honor that he is innocent. Will you make this an issue over the last two days of the campaign?
    This is bordering on treason. The American people deserve to hear about this.
  • What is your opinion of the military draft that is currently in place?
    We have had a draft in place for decades. I will not accept cowardice as an excuse among the young men of America.
