For the first time since I became a citizen in 1983, I will not vote for the Republican candidate for President. Like many Americans, I've been conflicted by this election - I still haven't made up my mind about how exactly I will vote next month. I have been a proud Republican sinec I moved to America in 1968 and I heard Nixon's words about getting the government off our backs, free trade, and defending our liberty with a strong military. That day I joined the party of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan. But as proud as I am to label myself a Republican, there is one label that I hold above all else - American. So I want to take a moment today to remind my fellow Republicans that it is not only acceptable to choose your country over your party - it is your duty.

Death Penalty

Pro Death Penalty

30 Apr 2013

In an interview with Piers Morgan

When it comes to the death penalty, yes, I believe in the death penalty and we have the death penalty for years here in California.


Against Weed Legalization

28 May 2009

In a CNN interview

I like the law that we have in place. And I don’t believe in legalizing marijuana, but I’m always open for the debate because there are people that feel differently. And I said I’m always interested in debating any of these issues because there’s always different ways of looking at it. And I think it would be interesting to see the information that is available, if there’s any information available, of well countries are doing that have legalized marijuana. But I don’t think that information is available, and I’d want us to see that. But I believe in the law, the way the law is right now, and I think it’s worked very well for the state of California. And I think it would be a mistake to just go and legalize something that we don’t believe in just because it would produce an extra billion dollars in revenues. And I think we just have to learn how to live within our means rather than trying to do things we really don’t want to do.

I believe one day CA will recognize gay marriage but I will uphold decision. Made right choice allowing 18K marriages before vote to stand.


Pro Nuclear Power

Political Affiliations


31 Aug 2004

At the Republican National Convention

Listening to Nixon speak sounded more like a breath of fresh air. I said to my friend, I said, “What party is he?” My friend said, “He’s a Republican.” I said, “Then I am a Republican.” And I have been a Republican ever since! And trust me – And trust me in my wife’s family, that’s no small achievement. But I am proud to be with the Party of Abraham Lincoln, the Party of Teddy Roosevelt, the Party of Ronald Reagan and the Party of George W. Bush!
