Perry opposes Obama’s healthcare plan. He wants to return Medicaid responsibility to the states, allow state employees to opt out of Social Security, and allow younger workers to invest in Personal Retirement Accounts.
Perry wants to focus on rebuilding the nation first, but he still wants to maintain strong relationships with allies. He promises to secure U.S. borders as well. He wants increased fencing along the borders and deploying national Guardsmen to protect weak areas until more border patrol agents can be hired and trained.
Gary E. Johnson
Former Governor of New Mexico
Johnson wants to legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana – something that he lobbied in his time as the governor of New Mexico. Johnson also wants to stop spending on fiscal stimulus, transportation, energy, and other items that he calls “special interests.” Like Ron Paul, Johnson wants to audit the Federal Reserve.
Along with repealing Obama’s healthcare plan, Johnson wants to give block grant funds to the states for Medicare and Medicaid, nix the Medicare prescription benefit and adjust Social Security to be based on inflation rather than earned wages.
Johnson wants the U.S. to “lead be example.” He argues that America must repair itself at home before tackling foreign issues. Johnson wants to re-evaluate deployments in the former Soviet Union and pull out of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya. He also opposes torture as a means of interrogation against terrorist suspects.
