As the major elected officials, business leaders, and politicos descend on Washington D.C. for the annual CPAC conference, you will hear many stories about the status of the conservative movement, how Republican congressmen can’t seem to implement their agenda, and who’s running for president in 2012.  Lost in the shuffle of all political manuevering that goes on at CPAC and Washington D.C. for that matter, we’ve decided to remind our viewers of the campaign promises and policy changes that many Republicans promised from balanced budgets to spending cuts that have yet to be implemented.  For your viewing pleasure we have Presidential hopeful and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, CPAC headliner Rep. Allen West, Tea Party favorite Rep. Ron Paul, Americans for Tax Reform chief Grover Norquist, and conservative leader and former Presidential Candidate Steve Forbes. 

Sen. Rick Santorum – Former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania & 2012 Presidential Hopeful

Rep. Allen West – U.S. House of Representatives & CPAC Headliner

Edward Gonzalez for Congress Website


Below is the transcript of Dan Mangru’s exclusive interview with Edward Gonzalez.
Mangru: The problem with many third party candidates is that they never win, so people are reluctant to vote for them.  What do you think needs to be done to change that mindset?
Gonzalez: Americans are begging for a small government, pro U.S. Constitution party.  While the GOP claims to stand for freedom, their actions show otherwise.  If the establishment Republicans do not fight to reduce the size of government, I think we will see a huge majority of people voting for a third party.  I think the mindset is already starting to change.
Mangru: The Tea Party has been a major force in America.  But instead of becoming an organized political movement it has migrated into the Republican Party.  Do you think this is a smart move, seeing as how third parties face huge hurdles such as ballot access, notoriety, etc?
Gonzalez: We need a legitimate “small government” party.  The Republicans talk about small government when they are out of power, but the moment they are in control, they push ahead with large government programs and deficit spending.  The Tea Party movement is trying to make the Republican Party into a true small government party.  They may succeed.  I hope they do succeed, but I am not optimistic.  I think there is a greater likelihood that the Republican Party will disappoint the small government movement.  At that point the Tea Party may move to form its own party, or join the small government party that already exists:  The Libertarian Party.
Mangru: California has always been an experimental testing ground for may policies.  What is your stance on recreational marijuana and do we need to advance items that make Americans less productive in the middle of a recession?
Gonzalez: I own my body.  You own your body.  I decide what goes into mine and you in yours, not the government.  No politician has the right to tell me what I can or cannot put in my own body.
The “War on Drugs” has been a total disaster with unintended consequences such as increased street violence and serious gang violence in our inner cities and at the southern border.  Legalizing marijuana would solve the moral dilemma, remove funding from organized crime, and provide cash strapped local governments with an additional revenue source.
Many conservatives disagree with my assessment.  To them I always ask the same question, “If the government can tell us what we can and cannot put in our own bodies, where is the so-called “limit” on government?”
Mangru: People point to the health care system in Canada as a model for how health care in America could be.  Canadians are satisfied with their level of care and the prices are relatively low even prompting Americans to get lower priced drugs from Canada.  Do we have something to learn from Canada and can a similar system be implemented in America?
Gonzalez: We can certainly learn from programs that work in other areas of the world.  Relaxing our restrictions on prescription drugs made outside the U.S. comes to mind immediately.  The problem with any socialized system is that there is going to be government imposed rationing.  I am sure young healthy people are happy with their level of care in Canada, but talk to a mother whose son needs an immediate life saving surgery but the wait time is 18 months.  She is probably not “satisfied” with her level of care.
As is with all industries, the most efficient and productive method for health care would be direct patient/doctor relationships where the patient paid the doctor directly.  Insurance, which should not be mandatory, would only come into play in the case of catastrophic accidents.  If this were the case, patients would think twice before paying for the numerous and expensive tests doctors now perform, and doctors would have to compete against each other based on cost.
Mangru: While it’s easy to say that pension reform can help California’s budget, it’s not easy to tell people that their pensions are being reduced or taken away by the government.  Is pension reform in California non-negotiable?
Gonzalez: Absolutely not.  One of the measures on the ballot in San Jose will reduce the pensions of all new police and firefighters hired.  That is a step that should be implemented across all of CA.  As far as raising the retirement age or reducing benefits in other ways, California will have to enact some of these measures or face bankruptcies.  There are those who advocate raising taxes to make of the difference, but that is not a viable solution because businesses and people would just pick up and move.
