There is a plan and a purpose, a value to every life, no matter what its location, age, gender or disability.
And that's really what's happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment. We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We're supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government.
You know, this is a war of ideology, a war of thoughts and of faith. And we need people to really stand for faith and trust, not hope and change.

I still have a great deal of faith in our political system and a great deal of faith in the American people and voter.
I support voluntary personal retirement accounts for Social Security. It should be people's free choice.
I used to gamble when I was young. I'm wiser now.
I'm pro responsible choice. You know, there is choice to abstain, choice to do contraception. There are all kinds of good choices.
