James believes that we should pay to have public schools and not charter schools. One reason is because there are more people in a public schools than charter schools. Charter schools tend to focus on one subject. Such as if you were interested in art, you would go to a charter school that focused on art. In a public school they focus on all subjects the same.
James believes in higher taxes so we can pay off all of the things such as renewable power, gun control, military and the public schools. He also believes that we need more money to start new programs and support businesses.
James thinks that we need stricter gun control so that we don’t have as many criminals as we do now. James will let people get a gun if you are going to hunt with a gun. Ian experienced near death by almost getting shot and that’s why he wants stricter gun control.
James also believes in renewable energy since it is better for the earth. Non-renewable energy pollutes the earth. So he thinks that we should start moving away from non-renewable energy because we have more renewable energy and it is better for the earth and its atmosphere.
James strongly believes that we should spend our money on our nation's military. We need to defend ourselves from terrorism. Mr. Stowell’s brother, Austin, was in the marine corps. He wants the money to go to the military so our nation is protected.
