Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Protección de nuestro ambiente en California y limitación el crecimiento del gobierno.
  • Crear un gobierno estadounidense que trabaje y sea para la gente. ¡Un mundo más seguro!
  • Detener el gasto federal irresponsable. Respetar a todas las religiones y a las personas, y proteger a la gente de los EE. UU. y a nuestra constitución.

Do you support the use of a federal carbon tax on the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the use of fossil fuels (such as coal, oil and natural gas) as a means to both slow climate change and to reduce the deficit?  Why or why not?
Respuesta de Paul Merritt:

Our Federal govt. has failed to try programs to make clean COAL a mandate and

innovation of such possibilites.

Move nuke waste away from our population centers

LOWER gas tax based on consumer conservation useage.

Climate change is REAL and other factors also contribute to this dire situation [eg. animal waste]

What is your stand on gun control laws at the federal level?  Please explain the reasoning behind your position. 
Respuesta de Paul Merritt:

CITIZENS have the RIGHT to bear arms

Felons or mental persons must have very very strong jail penalties for un-authorized possession of guns.

At the federal level, should recreational marijuana be legalized? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Paul Merritt:

This is a State[s] Rights issue. REPEAL Federal small quantities use laws.

The Federal Government plays a part in California water allocation and use through a variety of laws.  What, if any, legislation would you support in an effort to handle water shortages caused by the current and any future drought?
Respuesta de Paul Merritt:

Make water distribution fair to ALL cities and agriculture businesses

ALLOW for water desalinization / re cycle program/ drought tolerent landscaping rebates

Should immigration laws be changed?  What changes would you support?  Please explain why. 
Respuesta de Paul Merritt:

YES, I SUPPORT A STONG FENCE and controls on ALL borders - even Oceans/ Canada

However, persons who dont want to be U.S. CITIZENS and desire to work in the U.S. should have a permit system in the USA to 

process their current issues.  No criminals or mental defectives allowed entry to our U.S.A

No repeat amnesty programs that have proven immigrant failure to our lawful system.

End the anchor baby Passports by legislation per the Constitution.

California make history . . . elect an independent Senator Merritt. Elect an independent thinker. Elect the person, not the Party-in-power’s. Our National government is a shambles. We need a strong USA defense. Merritt is solid on international issues. I believe in Faith, respect people and all religions. Merritt supports Senator Feinstein’s boarder security fence, no offshore oil drilling, and our desert environmental protection Act. Merritt adheres that President Reagan’s idea on small government is best. Background: two law degrees, broker, hotel owner, elected city councilperson. Homeowner boards: Palm Springs, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Orange County. Life member Nature Conservancy. Most Billionaire Republicans and Union boss Democrats don’t represent you! Merritt is Independent for all Citizens. Paul Merritt is a Californian!
