America must unleash the power of enterprise, innovation, civic energy, and the American spirit — and never pretend that government is a substitute for family or community. I oppose more government control over people’s lives and earnings.

At its core, abortion is a fundamental assault on the sanctity of innocent human life. Women deserve better than abortion. Every effort should be made to work with women considering abortion to enable and empower them to choose life

At the United Nations, our country must pay a fair, but not disproportionate, share of dues, but we must never support a UN-imposed tax. The UN must reform its scandal-ridden and corrupt management and become more accountable and transparent in its operations and expenses. As a matter of U.S. sovereignty, American forces must remain under American command.

Because official Washington does not even know how much land it owns, I support a national audit of all federally-owned properties as a first step toward returning unnecessary properties to the American people or to state and local government for public use.

China’s full integration into the global economy requires that it adopt a flexible monetary exchange rate and allow free movement of capital. China’s economic growth brings with it the responsibility for environmental improvement, both for its own people and for the world community.

Decades of massive aid have failed to spur economic growth in the poorest countries, where it has often propped up failed policies and corrupt rulers. We must target foreign assistance to foster the rule of law through democratic government, emphasizing literacy and learning, and, concentrating on the foundations for economic development

Discrimination against Israel at the UN is unacceptable. I welcome Israel’s membership in the Western European and Others Group at the UN headquarters and demand its full acceptance and participation at all UN venues.

Genocide must end. The horrendous suffering of the people in the Darfur region of Sudan, as well as less publicized human tragedies elsewhere, calls for a far more energetic and determined response from Africa’s elected leaders. We look toward the restoration of human rights to the suffering people of North Korea and the fulfillment of the wish of the Korean people to be one in peace and freedom.

Homeownership remains key to creating an opportunity society. I support timely and carefully targeted aid to those hurt by the housing crisis so that affected individuals can have a chance to trade a burdensome mortgage for a manageable loan that reflects their home’s market value. At the same time, government action must not implicitly encourage anyone to borrow more than they can afford to repay.

I affirm both the right of individuals to voluntarily participate in labor organizations and bargain collectively and the right of states to enact Right-to- Work laws. But the nation’s labor laws should be modernized to make it easier for employers and employees to plan, execute, and profit together.

I do not support government bailouts of private institutions. Government interference in the markets exacerbates problems in the marketplace and causes the free market to take longer to correct itself. We believe in the free market as the best tool to sustained prosperity and opportunity for all. We encourage potential buyers to work in concert with the lending community to educate themselves about the responsibilities of purchasing a home, condo, or land.

I oppose the ideological campaign against Vatican participation in UN conferences and other activities. America must support the vision of two democratic states living in peace and security: Israel, with Jerusalem as its capital, and an independent Palestine.

I reject the idea that America cannot overcome its energy challenges. We must aggressively increase our nation’s energy supply, in an environmentally responsible way, and do so through a comprehensive strategy that meets both short and long term needs.
