In general, I think school choice works best when it is arrived at gradually, locally, and voluntarily -- not by top-down mandates.

I believe that trade and economic interchange with autocratic regimes does more to enhance human rights than punitive measures. Getting on our moral high horse has been often misguided and has almost never helped matters. In fact, it has usually made things worse. Leising: No additional com- ment Hamilton: No additional comment Immigration What is your position on h,g- islation which would: -- reduce legal immigration numbers by one-third? Hostettler: Oppose Weinzapfeh Oppose Hager: Oppose Leising: Oppose Hamilton: Oppose Feeney: Did not respond to survey Continent: Hostettler: No additional comment Weinzapfeh No additional comment Hager: Government does more harm than good, as a look at the history of federal activi- ties quickly reveals. I believe that the federal government does have the authority to pass some environmental legislation green house gases and water pollution, for examples -- but that one should be very careful in invoking government power. I believe that federal activity in the environmental area should be greatly reduced. Leising: No additional com- ment Hamilton: No additional comment Euthanasia What is your position on leg- islation what would allow a physician to administer or pre- scribe a lethal injection or drug overdose to assist in the suicide of patients diagnosed as termi- nally ill? Hostettler: Oppose Weinzapfeh Oppose Hager: Support Leising: Oppose Hamilton: In general, I do not support euthanasia. I am extremely wary of government action in this area. Feeney: Did not respond to survey Comment: Hostettler: No additional comment Weinzapfeh No additional comment Hager: The federal govern- ment should quit interfering in the market. Actually federal agricultural subsidies (that is, corporate welfare) benefit large agri-business over small family farms. I favor abolition of the Department of Agriculture. Leising: No additional com- ment Hamilton: No additional comment Human Rights What is your position on mak- ing the defense of human rights including religious liberty a central concern of U.S. foreign policy, especially in places where human rights are most at risk by linking other policies (e.g., trade preferences or military aid) to a country's performance on human rights? Hostettler: Support Weinzapfeh Support Hager.

I Message policy regarding political activity The Message is the official newspaper of the Catholic Diocese of Evansville. The policy of the Message is to observe the rules forbidding 501 (c) (3) organizations from engaging in partisan polit- ical activity.

Political advertising is accepted at the Message from all bona fide candidates on an equal basis. -- limit categories of relation- ship eligible for family unifica- tion ? Hostettler: No Position. Too broad. Weinzapfeh Oppose Hager: Oppose Leising: Oppose Hamilton: Oppose Feeney: Did not respond to survey --place a cap on refugee admissions' numbers? Hostettler: Oppose Weinzapfeh Support Hager: Oppose Leising: Support Hamilton: Oppose lowering the current cap Feeney: Did not respond to survey -- require social service agen- cies receiving government fund- ing to determine the immigra- tion status of their clients as a condition of providing services? Hostettler: Support Weinzapfeh Oppose Hager: Oppose Leising: Support Hamilton: Oppose Feeney: Did not respond to survey Comment: Hostettler: America must retain the integrity of its bor- ders. Illegal immigration cannot be tolerated. Such tolerance destroys the character of legal immigration, of which I am a proponent. Weinzapfeh No additional comment Hager: All immigration laws historically have their genesis in racism and xenophobia All immigrant groups have proven to be a net contribution to the American economy. On prag- matic grounds we should have free immigration  it will ben- efit us. Leising: I believe it is essen- tial that elected officials work to restore the respect of life for the unborn, disabled and elderly. I will work hard for the rights of parents to choose their child's school. Hamilton: No additional .......... : ..... " .... t,;, ..... J;,, ..... , ........ q. -,, ..... comment ........... , .......
