Our government continues in grow in power every year, so it would do us good to also take a period to reduce down to a smaller government that can focus on issues more effectively, especially the CCP; minarchy would be prudent as opposed to full blown martial law. I would oppose more regulations and support a strong border, police, military and courts.

I think it's going to be important to remain energy independent while also conserving the remaining old growth. Forest management needs review.
I think the restrictions should be lifted and it should be decided between the insurance companies and their customers, just as it's between businesses and their customers whether or not they require masks within their establishments. The government should not be involved. If you wear a mask you get coverage for Covid, if not then you dont.
Nothing at all, the bill of rights has it all clearly covered. Hate speech is free speech. I don't think we need new laws to force us to be good people and help each other, especially in times of need. I have faith in community in americans to work things out.
