I believe churches should have the option to forego their tax free status if they choose to engage in paid political activities or fundraising activities involving political issues. If they prefer to retain their tax free status, I believe it is appropriate that they refrain from the aforementioned activities. In any case, I believe all Americans should have the right to free speech; however, I don’t believe political speech or related activities should be funded by taxpayer dollars.

Rick Crawford (Republican)
Undecided
'Strategic ambiguity' has been US policy on this question for the last four decades, and it is better that we maintain this room to maneuver, as we continue to arm Taiwan for its self-defense. A Chinese invasion of the flourishing democracy in Taiwan would not only be a humanitarian outrage, with countless innocent civilians killed; it would be economically devastating for America. More than 90% of the most advanced semiconductors - essential to our computers, cars, phones, and so much else - come from Taiwan. Giving the Chinese control over this key sector would be a dramatic threat to our national security and way of life.
9. Tech & Social Media: Enforcing anti-trust laws to break up large tech companies like Google and Facebook.
