Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Atención médica de pagador único e investigación de biotecnología y curas.
  • Preescolar público hasta 16 años de educación vocacional, colegio comunitario o universidad sin importar los ingresos.
  • Acabar con los subsidios obligatorios al petróleo del mercado libre para el 100 % de energía renovable para 2027: no hay tiempo para medidas a medias.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de KPBS and the League of Women Voters of North County San Diego (6)

Family reunification is a process that allows immigrants already residing in the U.S. to bring in additional family members. Do you support limiting this process? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Doug Applegate:

No, I believe reuniting immigrant families is vital to maintaining the American dream. What else can any American say. Tearing families apart is unAmerican.

Do you support expanding the current border wall between U.S. and Mexico? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Doug Applegate:

I do not support expanding the border wall. This would be a colossal waste of money for the American taxpayer and do little to restrict the illegal drug trade. In terms of illegal immigration, the net migration from Mexico to the U.S. since 2005 has been below zero as confirmed by the Pew Research Center:

Do you support creating additional regulations on gun ownership? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Doug Applegate:


I stand with the victims of gun violence and will fight to honor the lives lost.

I support banning assault weapons.
I support banning gun sales to those on the no-fly list.
I support banning bump-fire stocks.
I support lifting the CDC ban on research into gun violence.
I support mandatory universal background checks, including for guns sold on the internet and transactions between private individuals.

In addition, I support and propose yearly training and qualification for civilians.
No Marine carries a weapon unless they are trained and qualified, repeatedly. We need to learn from the Corps. Train and qualify civilian gun owners once a year, through mandatory weapons safety courses and tactical range qualifications from certified organizations. The purchase and sale of ammunition and reload materials must require proof of that annual classroom training and range qualification. As a member of the Marine Corps “rod & gun club,” I continue to own a firearm.

I oppose rolling back restrictions and fees on silencers.
I oppose civilians having silencers.
I oppose concealed carry reciprocity (HR38).
I oppose the rollback of an Obama administration directive allowing designated mental health providers to report names of mentally ill patients to the federal background check system.

Semper Fi,
Col. Doug Applegate

Should the U.S. remain in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Doug Applegate:

The U.S. should absolutely remain in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Reestablishing trade barriers would adversly affect the U.S. economy and cost jobs. However, NAFTA needs re-negotiation to reduce the U.S.-Mexico trade defecit, tighten rules-of-origin requirements, reforming the investor-state dispute resoulution mechanism, and updating the pact to include digital services and intellectual property, as promised by President Obama. 

Do you support raising the federal gas tax to improve the national transportation infrastructure (for example roads, train tracks, and bridges)? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Doug Applegate:

Yes, however, Congress needs to focus on ending oil subsidies and allow free market forces to move us to 100% renewable energy by 2027, together with infrastructure for future technologies, like micro energy grids nationwide, high-speed mass transit, and affordable housing (co-located with mass transit terminals). We have no time for half measures.

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages secure affordable health care?
Respuesta de Doug Applegate:

I support Single Payer Health Care/Medicare for All and capturing efficiency through Biotech Research for Cures.
