Personal (1-12)            Beliefs (13-20)            Platform (21-30)

21. Under what circumstances, if any, do you believe abortion should
be permitted?


Bryan Greene: "I am 100% Pro-Life. I believe that there is NO reason or circumstance great enough to murder/take the life of the unborn."

22. What is your position on same sex marriage?

Bryan Greene: "I believe that same-sex relationships (and marriage) destroy the family and the building of a great nation. I strongly support a Marriage Amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman to the State Constitutions. Yet, I cannot support a marriage amendment to the United States Constitution because the federal government is not given authority by the Constitution over this matter (our federal government was meant to be small and limited while the states are to retain most of the power)."

23. What is your position on prayers and Bible studies in schools, and why?

Bryan Greene: "I believe voluntary prayer and Bible studies should be allowed in schools as guaranteed by the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution, as a freedom of expression and religion. Our nation was founded on the principles of Christianity; our founding fathers recognized the importance of the Christian faith because of the morality it impelled on society, they realized that is was the only faith that allowed other faiths to worship as they pleased without fear of recompense. I fear the consequences of the removal of Christianity, just as did the founders during the creation of this great nation."

24. If (re-)elected, what will you seek to do about (Internet) pornography and the violence in the media, and how?

Bryan Greene: "As a US Representative, under the United States Constitution I would have no authority to regulate either of these industries (even though most seem to think I would) because the Constitution does not give the federal government rule in such cases. I believe that our main problem is the decay in the morals of the people and that the only way we can solve this problem is to reach those who are in spiritual decay with the gospel of Christ, which will change their lives forever. Yet, as a Representative I will use my voice to plead with manufacturers to produce technologies (or equip current products) which would allow the parents greater control over what they and their children watch in all media such as the V-Chip and ClearPlay systems which allow users to choose to exclude certain content from movies or media."

25. If (re-)elected, what will you seek to do about our health care system, and how?

Bryan Greene: "First, I do not advocate Universal Healthcare. I support privatized healthcare. Yet, again, the federal government has no authority to regulate the healthcare system under the Constitution. Therefore, my only action with healthcare would be to work to privatize it. Government need to get out of this industry. It is only being used for profiteering. I believe we must work to put limits/caps on medical lawsuits that drive healthcare prices up. The privatized health industry worked for many years before government involvement and can still work."

26. If (re-)elected, what will you seek to do about poverty and corporate greed & how?

Bryan Greene: "I disagree with government welfare. This system discourages self-worth and is pure and simple socialism. It takes from those who work for their living, and gives to those who will not work, and encourages immoral lifestyles at the expense of the taxpayer. The poor you will have with you always, Jesus said. To force others to give to any other group, whether through a government program or a tax, is immoral and sinful. Thomas Jefferson said "[t]o compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical." I encourage individuals, families, churches, civic groups and other private organizations, to fulfill their personal responsibility to help those in need. I believe that men, when allowed to give voluntarily for a cause (poverty and sickness), will give more charitably than when forced to do so; this encourages responsibility and builds stronger communities."

27. If (re-)elected, what will you seek to achieve in Iraq and Afghanistan, and how?

Bryan Greene: "I believe we should immediately begin a withdrawal of forces from Iraq, Afghanistan and all areas around the world. Our military should be used only to support and protect our Country under the Constitution of the United States. Both the War on Iraq and the War on Terror are unconstitutional and unjustified actions taken by the President, who has no authority to commit our military to war. The ability to declare war is specifically given to the US Congress alone in Article 1 Section 8 Clause 11 and cannot rightfully be delegated to any other power. James Madison, author of the US Constitution, said that "[t]he executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question, whether there is or is not cause for declaring war," and the US Congress never declared war in Iraq or on Terror. War should only be justified when attacked or an attack is imminent, and then only by a formal declaration of war from the US Congress. In the case of the War on Iraq, we were never attacked by them, nor were any imminent threats presented. In the case of Afghanistan, we should do as Congress allowed, and search out and bring to justice those who were involved in the attacks of September 11, not declare war on all terrorist organization around the globe."

28. If (re-)elected, what will you seek to achieve in Iran and North Korea, and how?

Bryan Greene: "I believe that we have no right to mandate that a country end its nuclear programs (or any weapons programs for that matter) whether it is to be used for a nuclear power plant or to produce weapons, it is that nation's right to produce nuclear technologies and to defend themselves (this goes hand in hand with our 2nd Amendment). We have no right to demand they disarm. I will seek diplomacy with each nation, and free trade. Vietnam is a great example of diplomacy and trade, for we have accomplished much more through these means than through war."

29. What other issue is a key priority for your constituents and how will you resolve it?

Bryan Greene: "The REAL ID Act, which established a national ID card, by mandating federal standards on state identification cards while risking the privacy and security of the people, is an issue that now faces my constituency. This gives the federal government nearly unlimited control over identification of the people and usurps states rights as guaranteed by the 10th Amendment, while being one more step closer to the establishment of a coming North American Union along with the NAFTA Superhighway. I am the only candidate in my district opposed to the REAL ID Act and I will work to see its repeal."

30. What qualifies you as the best person to represent your constituents?

Bryan Greene: "I seem to be the only candidate who is truly concerned about my constituency's Constitutional rights and the freedoms that we are losing to big government."

Before God, I affirm my answers above to be true and without embellishment or exaggeration.

Signed:
Bryan E. Greene
Candidate for US Congress
North Carolina's 10th District
