U.S. House District 2 Election (NH): Hardy Macia on the issues
Macia believes unchecked deficits are the single greatest threat to our national security. Unless we take significant steps soon, our federal debt will equal the entire economic production of the United States. We must fundamentally reassess the role of the federal government, always asking the question: Should the government be doing this in the first place? That reassessment should begin with the President submitting a truly balanced budget in 2013. Macia believes we should balance the budget, enact responsible entitlement reform, and audit the Federal Reserve.
Macia believes we need to overhaul a corrupt, costly, and complicated system and would like to see a new system with the follow:
- End all the creation of special interest/lobbyists loopholes in our tax system with a simpy straightforward tax.
-Abolish the Internal Revenue Service.
- Enact the FairTax to tax expenditures, rather than income, with a 'prebate' to make spending on basic necessities tax free.
-With the FairTax, eliminate business taxes, withholding and other levies that penalize productivity, while creating millions of jobs.
Macia believes our military should remain the most potent force for good on Earth. To do this, the U.S. should resort to military action as the last option and only as provided in the Constitution. He believes we should bring the troops home and lead by example.
Macia believes the PATRIOT Act should be repealed, which would restore proper judicial oversight to federal investigations and again require federal investigators to prove probable cause prior to executing a search.
