Chris Rothfuss on Civil Rights

Democratic Challenger


All citizens must be exactly equal in eyes of government

Constitutional Rights: Equality, privacy, and freedom: The United States Constitution should be supported in its entirety. All U.S. citizens must be exactly equal in the eyes of the government. Discrimination of any kind, regardless of intention or plurality of support, is unacceptable.

Don't require companies to hire more women and minorities

Q: Do you support the statement, "Require companies to hire more women and minorities"?

A: Oppose. All citizens should be treated equally under the law. While I understand the objectives of preferential hiring policies, we cannot achieve equality through well intentioned discrimination.

Sexual orientation protected by civil rights law

Q: Do you support the statement, "Sexual orientation should be protected by civil rights law"?

All US citizens should be exactly equal in government eyes

Our federal government was formed on the premise of protecting the liberties of our people. In that spirit, I believe that all U.S. citizens should be exactly equal in the eyes of the government--discrimination of any kind, regardless of intention or plurality of support, is unacceptable. An American is an American--no more, but certainly no less.
