Mr. Shoemaker, what do you stand for and believe beyond that vague, lazy position of "protecting Carroll County values"? Do you believe that higher performing schools in the county raise property values and result in additional employment opportunities in the county? Do you believe in free markets which used to be a foundational Republican position or do you believe in the New Republican position of fair trade and protectionism … which, by the way, used to be a Democrat position? Do you believe that the United States should demonstrate leadership by working with our allies and valuing that role and relationship? Or do you think we should spurn and diminish our allies of 70 years to partner with our cold war adversary? What are your thoughts on how we address the opioid epidemic beyond asking people to "just say no"? How do we fund Medicare and Social Security costs with a declining birth rate without having an immigration policy beyond 'the wall'?
