  • 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 be willing to call an unconditional bombing halt of North Vietnam in the hopes of restarting peace negotiations?
    We will never win the peace in Vietnam by caving in to the Communists. I cannot support such an ill-conceived measure.
  • 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 black community in most cities overreacted to the assassination of Martin Luther King this past April?
    The reaction that occurred should terrify any thinking American. Entire neighborhoods were burned and pillaged. They even looted their own storekeepers in many cities.
  • Should Lyndon Johnson have been able to prevent the Tet Offensive?
    I'm worried that for most or all of 1967, Lyndon Johnson repeatedly assured us that the North Vietnamese were on their last legs. It's difficult to assess the situation when we can't rely on the information that we have.
  • Would you be willing to place increasing responsibility in the hands of South Vietnam for their own defense?
    Only if they proved themselves capable of repelling Communist aggression. The best thing we can do right now is escalate the war with more American troops.
  • What is your stance on the Six-Day War that occurred last year, and how should Israel handle the new territories it has taken possession of?
    This business in Israel is no business of America. I wish them the best, but we should not be obtrusively inserting ourselves into these multilateral peace negotiations. Doing so will only serve to entangle us in the long run.
  • 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.
  • Would you appoint federal judges who support the decision Engel v. Vitale outlawing mandatory school prayer?
    I will appoint judges who support religious freedom in the United States. Absolutely.
  • 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.
  • What do you think of programs that require schools to use busing to achieve racial balance?
    Busing is nothing but another conspiracy to mongrelize the races of this country. First it was the Brown decision. Now it's some policy that some academic came up with to send children to school thirty miles from their house as part of some social engineering scheme.
  • 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.
  • If elected as President, what would you do to lower the inflation rate in this country, which currently stands at over 4%?
    The inflation rate we have in this country speaks to the heart of the Democrats' problems in running the economy. They claim to be the party of the working man, but they are fine with debasing wages and property values with their misguided social engineering.
  • Have you given any thought to programs that would set racial quotas for job hiring or college admissions, in order to accelerate the process of integration?
    You're dang right I've given some thought to this. We have laws in the books right now that require federal contractors to hire unqualified candidates, and we need to repeal them immediately.
  • What is causing the massive increase of crime in America? How will you reverse the trend?
    This increase in crime we see is the natural consequence of integration. I will not allow the black community in this country to get fancified notions of what they can get away with when I'm President.
  • Can we all agree that the Black Panthers are a menace to the security of the United States?
    The Black Panthers are a radical group of militants who are plotting the overthrow of the United States government. It is my firm position, in accordance with the Constitution, that anyone planning treason against our country should be imprisoned and possibly executed.
  • 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.
  • Do you believe that President Johnson overstepped his bounds in negotiating the Kennedy Round of trade agreements? Do you support the liberalization of international trade under the GATT?
    International trade will undermine the prosperity of the working man as quickly as it will undermine the sovereignty of the United States. I don't support any of these global organizations.
  • What will be the overall message of your campaign?
    I'm opposed to desegregation, environmentalism, defeatism, social engineering, busing, declining property values, and unchecked rioting. My candidacy appeals to southerners and northerners alike.
  • What is more important to you -- competing with Nixon in the border states (to help Humphrey) or winning over Humphrey voters in the northern cities (to help Nixon)?
    Humphrey and the Democrats need to know in the future that they cannot ignore the due concerns of the South and win elections. I will focus on winning potential Humphrey supporters.
  • If there is no majority in the electoral college, what are your goals at the bargaining table?
    Whatever ends up happening on election day, I cannot comment about the aftermath at this point. If that scenario develops I will hear what each side has to say and make a decision at that point.
