The opinions below are the issues that Gary Johnson believes in according the great people that did the research and devoted their time to share this information on Wikipedia and to Gary Johnson himself for posting his opinions on his website.
Issue (A) Budgets Deficits By the time Barack Obama leaves office, the national debt will be $20 TRILLION. That is not just obscene, it is unsustainable — and arguably the single greatest threat to our national security.
Responsibility for the years of deficit spending that have created our debt crisis rests squarely with BOTH the Republicans and the Democrats. The debt doubled under President George W. Bush — and doubled again under President Obama. During that time, both parties enjoyed control of Congress, and the deficit spending just kept piling up.
It doesn’t have to be that way, despite what the politicians say. But the idea that we can somehow balance the federal budget without cutting military spending and reforming entitlements is fantasy. What is required is leadership and political courage. As Governor of a state with an overwhelmingly Democrat legislature, Gary Johnson stood up to excess spending, vetoed 750 bills and literally thousands of budget line items…and balanced the state’s budget.
Governor Johnson has pledged that his first major act as President will be to submit to Congress a truly balanced budget. No gimmicks, no imaginary cuts in the distant future. Real reductions to bring spending into line with revenues, without tax increases. No line in the budget will be immune from scrutiny and reduction. And he pledges to veto any legislation that will result in deficit spending, forcing Congress to override his veto in order to spend money we don’t have.
No excuses. No games. A REAL balanced budget.
Issue (A) I support Gary Johnson's views on the budget and deficits.
Issue (B) Jobs
During the 2012 campaign, Gary Johnson was lauded for having the best “job creation” record of all the former governors running for President. His response: “As Governor, I didn’t create a single job.” His point, of course, being that government doesn’t create jobs — except for itself. Entrepreneurs, growing companies and a robust economy create jobs.
Government’s role is to create and maintain a regulatory and tax environment in which private job-creators can prosper. Gary Johnson did that as Governor, and would do so as President. Government regulation should only exist to protect citizens from bad actors and the harm they might do to health, safety and property. Regulation should not be used to manipulate behavior, manage private lives and businesses, and to place unnecessary burdens on those who make our economy work. Eliminating unnecessary regulations and applying common sense to those rules that are necessary will free up capital and allow those who want and need to create jobs to do so.
Likewise, adopting the tax reforms Governor Johnson advocates will literally create millions of jobs. While most politicians, Democrats and Republicans alike, suggest that modest reductions in business taxes might create jobs, Gary Johnson believes eliminating income taxes on businesses will transform the U.S. into the “job magnet” of the world. Why would any corporation move its operations off-shore when the best tax “haven” on the planet is right here at home?
Issue (B) I support Gary Johnson's views on employment.
Issue (C) Energy Gary Johnson favors building newcoal-firedandnuclear powerplants. He supports private sector research and development of renewable energy, but does not believe doing so is the government's job.
Issue (C) I support Gary Johnon's views on Energy.
Issue (D) Environment Johnson has stated that the best environmental practices are due to a good economy.He says "America needs to be a land with a clean environment," and supports "clean-air and clean-wateraction and believe[s] in conservation." He cites the Environmental Protection Agencyas an example of good government.Johnson has stated he agrees that human carbon emissions do impact the climate. However, he opposes mandatory cap-and-trade policies,and favors allowing private businesses to build more coal=power plants, creating jobs.
Issue (D) I support Gary Johnson's views on the Environment.
Issue (E) Federal Reserve Johnson has said theFederal Reserve"needs to be reviewed and managed effectively" by congressionally auditing it.He also said that its actions "should be transparent". He has stated that Congress should "take a close look at how the Federal Reserve Bank is operated and regulated. If changes need to be made within the Federal Reserve Bank, they should be made."
He says, "We need to know where the money that is being printed is going,"such as "the extent to which the Fed has purchased private assets at home and abroad."He blames high inflation on the lack of transparency in the Federal Reserve.Johnson opposesquantitative easing, which he says is merely "printing money and buying debt," and which he believes causes "malinvestment, inflation, and prolonged unemployment."He also states that he would not veto a bill that would end the Federal Reserve.
While Johnson supported ending the Federal Reserve when questioned about the issue in an online town hall,Johnson only mentions three reforms of the Federal Reserve on his website "Conduct an audit to provide true transparency of the Federal Reserve's lending practices", "Establish clear Congressional oversight", and "Get the Federal Reserve out of the business of printing money and buying debt through quantitative easing." In a YouTube interview, he says, "The Federal Reserve's original mandate was price stability. Added on to that was unemployment, or [rather] employment, which I think are at odds with one another. [The] Federal Reserve and central banks should be about a strong U.S. dollar and not a weak U.S. dollar. That's what we have. We have zero percent interest rates, because let's face it. If we didn't have zero percent interest rates right now we would be in the midst of that monetary collapse because of the debt that Americans hold and can't repay." Gary also has stated that the Federal Reserve is not a private entity. "We own the Federal Reserve. There is this misconception that the Federal Reserve is a private entity. It's one thing to borrow money, which is an ok phenomenon. But it is another thing to print money."
Issue (E) I support Gary Johnson's views about the Federal Reserve.
Issue (F) Free Market Johnson supports free marketsand free-market capitalist economics.He says, "Free markets and limited government are the foundation of prosperity." He believes government should foster the free market by allowing businesses freedom to compete without restrictions.He opposes government subsidies to business; he believes they wrongly "pick winners and losers," which he says is the consumer's job, not the government's
Issue (F) I support Gary Johnson's views on the Free Market
Issue (G) Free Trade Johnson supports free tradeand opposes tariffs, "period." He believes free market trade corrects inequities between trading partners, such as foreign countries' subsidies for certain industries.between trading partners, such as foreign countries' subsidies for certain industries.
Issue (G) I support Gary Johnson's views on Free Trade.
Issue (H) Health Care
Johnson believes that the "costs of health care are out of control and something needs to be done to return health care to fiscal solvency." He does "not believe that government should be taking over the health care system." Instead, he believes that a "market-based approach should be the foundation of any solution. A health care insurance system that is privately owned and managed is the best approach to solving our health care problems." He favorstort reformand control offrivolous lawsuitsas means cutting costs of health care.
Johnson opposed thePatient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and believes it should be repealed. He also opposed theMedicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act, which he calls "the failed Medicare prescription drug plan," and believes it should be repealed.
Issue (H) I support Gary Johnson's Views on Health Care.
Issue (I) Labor Unions Johnson says his only issue with trade unions, including teachers' unions, is that they require both good and bad workers to be treated the same. He believes businesses should be allowed to reward good workers and fire bad workers, without collective intervention. He views public-sector unions that contribute to political campaigns as "dangerous.
Issue (I) I support Gary Johnson'sviews on Labor Unions.
Issue (J) Social Security and Medicare Johnson believes in continuingSocial Security,Medicare, andMedicaidfor people who have already paid into the system because "there are people in need," and "government is the only entity able to provide in some cases."But he believes in what he calls enacting "responsible entitlement reform," because the notion "that we can control spending and balance the budget without reforming Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security" is "lunacy."
Johnson says Social Security is valuable and is fixable without raising taxes.He wants "Social Security to reflect today's realities without breaking trust with retirees."He supports raising theretirement age, multi-prongedmeans testingfor Social Security recipients, and changing the escalator built into Social Security fromthe wage indexto theinflation rate. He wants Congress to investigate privatizing part or all of Social Security with the goal being that the investment of contributions could be self-directed.
Johnson supports cutting federal Medicare and Medicaid expenditures by 43% by ending the federal, top-down bureaucracy that controls these programs, including all strings and mandates to states. Instead, he wouldblock grantthe remaining funds to the states to control all aspects of their own Medicaid and Medicare programs, making for "50 laboratories of innovation" from whichbest practiceswould emerge and eventually be duplicated.He believes the states will "innovate, find efficiencies and provide better service at lower cost." He says "common-sense cost savings" will place Medicare and Medicaid "on a path toward long-term solvency."
Johnson believes that funding for Social Security and Medicare should not come frompayroll taxes, but instead should be funded out of revenues from the FairTax
Issue (J) I support Gary Johnson's views on Social Security and Medicare.
Issue(K) Military and Foreign Policy The objective of both our foreign policy and our military should be straightforward: To protect us from harm and to allow the exercise of our freedoms.
Looking back over the past couple of decades, it is difficult to see how the wars we have waged, the interventions we have conducted, the lives sacrificed and the trillions spent on the other side of the globe have made us safer. The chaotic, reactive military and foreign policies of the past two Presidents have, if anything, created an environment that has allowed real threats to our safety to flourish.
Radical Islam and sharia ideology were not created by our actions, but they have prospered in the wake of the instability to which our actions contributed. And while our leaders have thrust our military and our resources into regime changes, failed nation-building and interventions that have strained valuable strategic relationships, the murderers of ISIS, Al Qaeda and other violent extremes have found new homes, established the caliphate of their warped dreams and secured the resources to become very real threats to our lives and our liberty.
As President, Gary Johnson will move quickly and decisively to refocus U.S. efforts and resources to attack the real threats we face in a strategic, thoughtful way. The U.S. must get serious about cutting off the millions of dollars that are flowing into the extremists’ coffers every day. Relationships with strategic allies must be repaired and reinforced. And the simplistic options of “more boots on the ground” and dropping more bombs must be replaced with strategies that will isolate and ultimately neuter those who would, if able, destroy the very liberties on which this nation is founded.
Issue (K) I support Gary Johnson's views on the Military and Foreign Policy.
Issue (L) Terrorism Johnson says the United States "should be protected fromterrorismand those that attack America should be brought to justice quickly and efficiently," and believes it "should be proactive in such matters."Nevertheless, he opposed theUSA PATRIOT Act, and has said that it should be allowed to expire.
Johnson opposes "physical or psychologicaltorture" for any "criminal or terrorist suspect captured by the U.S." He believes that "individuals incarcerated unjustly by the U.S.," "whether atGuantanamo Bayor elsewhere," "should have the ability to seek compensation through the courts," "must be given due process via the courts or military tribunals, and must not be held indefinitely without regard to those fundamental processes."
Though Johnson believes the practice of holding persons at Guantanamo Bay without charge or hearing should end, he does not necessarily favor closing the detention camp there. He says that, even if it were closed, there would have to be "some facility somewhere" like it to holdenemy combatants.Johnson has said thattrying enemy combatants by militarytribunalis "a fair way to go about trying these individuals" that does not infringe on their civil liberties.
Issue (L) I support Gary Johnson's views on the Terroism.
Issue (M) Afghanistan Johnson initially supported the war in Affghanistanas a response to the September 11 attacs reasoning "We were attacked, and we attacked back." However, he opposes continued military involvement in Afghanistan, stating that "after being in Afghanistan for six months I think we effectively wiped out al Queda."He also believes the United States "should not be borrowing money to build roads, bridges, schools and other infrastructure in foreign countries, especially when such help is currently needed at home. Non-military foreign aid around the world is something we cannot currently afford."On April 9, 2012, Johnson told The Daiy Calerthat while he would withdraw military forces, he would not rule out putting U.S. military bases in Afghanistan.
Issue (M) I support Gary Johnson's views on Afghanistan.
Issue (N) Iraq Johnson opposed theIraq Warsince its beginning,and called for the American presence inIraqto end.He says that because "Saddam Hussein has been out of power in Iraq for nearly eight years," American troops "must leave so Iraq can have a chance to grow into a responsible member of the world community.
Issue (N) I support Gary Johnson's views on Iraq.
Issue (O) Israel While running as a Republican, Johnson stated that he "supports the right of Israelto exist as a sovereign country and believes that the United States should protect that right militarily if needed."He also stated that Israel is an important ally, and that Americ's milltary alliance with Israelshould be maintained, but that he opposes financial aid to Israel, as he does to all countries. He has said he would not follow Israel or any other ally into a war that it had initiatedl or any other ally into a war that it had initiated.
Issue (O) I support Gary Johnson's views on Israel.
Issue (P) Iran Johnson told the Daily Callerthat the United States has not engagedIrandiplomatically in a serious manner. He would remind them that if “Iran launches a nuclear warhead they can be assured that they will no longer exist” and that the attack "will be from Israel.” He also would offer to open up trade with Iran.During his Libertarian Party campaign he stated that he does not believe Iran is a military threat and would use all his presidential power to prevent Israel from attacking Iran.
Issue (P) I support Gary Johnson's views on Iran.
Issue (Q) Libya Johnson opposed U.S. involvement in theLibyan Civil War.He believes there is no "clear goal for our military actions in Libya," and dislikes that "the American people are footing the bill" for military operations there.
Issue (Q) I support Gary Johnson's views on Libya.
Issue (R) Uganda In April 2012, Gary Johnson stated he supported the United States' efforts to aid African troops in tracking down Lord’s Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony who heads what he called arguably "the worst terrorist group that’s been on the planet for the last 20 years.” He stated that although Congress had passed legislation authorizing U.S. intervention, signed by Obama, and that in such case “I would have had plans to immediately ask for a volunteer force and gone in and wipe ‘em out.
Issue (R) I support Gary Johnson's views on Uganda.
Issue (S) Cuba Johnson does not oppose charter flights to Cuba.
Issue (S) I support Gary Johnson's views on Cuba.
Issue (T) Ukraine In 2014, following theRussian annexation of Crimeaand amidstpro-Russian unrest in Ukraine, Johnson expressed the opinion that the United States should not get involved in Ukraine due to a lack of risk to American national security.He stated that U.S. involvement in Ukraine "would be like Russia getting involved in the affairs ofPuerto Rico.
Issue (T) I support Gary Johnson's views on the Ukraine.
Issue (U) Campaign Finance Regulation Johnson believes the only necessarycampaign finance reformis a mandate of "100% transparency."In 2012, Johnson suggested that he would support the consideration of a public financing system for federal campaigns if elected. He also signaled support for a constitutional amendment process to overturn the US Supreme Court's ruling in the case ofCitizens United v. Federal Election Commission.
Issue (U) I support Gary Johnson's views on Campaign Finance Regulation.
Issue (V) Civil Liberties Johnson believes the "government should protect the value of individuals and their civil liberties" and "should not intervene in the private lives of individual citizens unnecessarily. Personal liberty and freedom from unwarranted governmental control or regulation should allow law abiding individuals to pursue their own desires as long as they are not causing harm to other people."He believes the role of government is to "protect us from individuals who might or do us harm," but "should be out of our lives for the most part." He believes "our civil liberties are being eroded" and that Americans are "giving up [their] civil rights in the name of fear."
Johnson opposes theUSA PATRIOT Act, and believes it should be allowed to expire.He believes this would "restore proper judicial oversight to federal investigations and again require federal investigators to prove probable cause prior to executing a search."Johnson says "habeas corpusshould be respected entirely, requiring the government to either charge incarcerated individuals with a crime or be released."
Johnson supports private alternatives to theTSA, which he says "should take a risk-based approach to airport security. Only high-risk individuals should be subjected to invasive pat-downs and full-body scans."He believes non-government airport screeners "can be held fully accountable for their successes and failures.
Issue (V) I support Gary Johnson's views on Civil Liberties.
Issue (W) Eminete Domain Johnson opposes using theeminent domainpower to benefit private entities.
Issue (W) I support Gary Johnson's views on Eminent domain.
Issue (X) States Rights Johnson says, "After great deliberation, the Founders clearly based the blueprint for our government on the fundamental idea that there must be strict constraints on Federal power — an idea from which we have strayed much too far."He believes "that the proper balance needs to be restored between the different branches of government," which "includes the rights of states.
Issue (X) I support Gary Johnson's views on States' Rights.
Issue (Y) Judicial Appointments Johnson promises to appoint only those judges "who will interpret the Constitution according to its original meaning." He believes that any "court decision that does not follow this original meaning of the Constitution should be revisited.
Issue (Y) I support Gary Johnson's views on Judicial Appointments.
Issue (Z) Abortion Gary Johnson supports "a woman's right to choose up until the point of viability"and wants to keep abortion legal.He has been very vocal in his beliefs.He supports legislationbanning late-term abortionsand mandating parental notification forminors seeking an abortion. Johnson believesRoe v. Wadewas wrongly decided and should be overturned because it "expanded the reach of the Federal government into areas of society never envisioned in the Constitution." He believes that laws regardingabortionshould "be decided by the individual states.
Issue (Z) I support Gary Johnson's views on Abortion.
Issue (AA) Crime How is it that the United States, the land of the free, has one of the highest incarceration rates in the world? The answer is simple: Over time, the politicians have “criminalized” far too many aspects of people’s personal lives. The failed War on Drugs is, of course, the greatest example. Well over 100 million Americans have, at one time or another, used marijuana. Yet, today, simple possession and use of marijuana remains a crime — despite the fact that a majority of Americans now favor its legalization.
More generally, mandatory minimum sentences for a wide range of offenses and other efforts by politicians to be “tough” have removed far too much common-sense discretion from judges and prosecutors. These factors, combined with the simple fact that we have too many unnecessary laws, have produced a society with too many people in our prisons and jails, too many undeserving individuals saddled with criminal records, and a seriously frayed relationship between law enforcement and those they serve.
Fortunately, a growing number of state and local governments are taking steps toward meaningful criminal justice reform. The federal government must do the same, and Gary Johnson is committed to bringing real leadership to this long-overdue effort.
Issue (AA) I support Gary Johnson's views on Crime.
Issue (AB) Death Penalty Johnson opposes the death penaltycompletely. Initially, as Governor of New Mexico, he had sought to expand capital sentences to minors, while limiting appeals; he now calls that position "naïve." He believes government inevitably "makes mistakes with regard to the death penalty," and does not "want to put one innocent person to death to punish 99 who are guilty.
Issue (AB) I support Gary Johnson's views on the Death Penalty.
Issue (AC) Drinking Age Johnson is in favor of lowering the drinking age to 18.
Issue (AC) I support Gary Johnson's views on the Drinking Age.
Issue (AD) Drug Policy Johnson says hisdrugpolicy is "Don't do drugs."He believes drugs are "harmful, addictive and destructive to our lives and society."He believes the same aboutalcohol
However, Johnson believes that the War on Drugshas not been successful, and should be ended.]He "believes it is insane to arrest roughly 800,000 people a year for choosing to use a natural substance that is, by any reasonable objective standard, less harmful than alcohol, a drug that is advertised at every major sporting event." He compares present-day drug prohibitionto the failed alcohol prohibition in the 1920'sHe says "90% of the drug problem is prohibition-related, not use-related."
Johnson believes that marijuana should be legalized, regulated, and taxed, "just like tobacco."But he promises "it will never be legal for a person to smoke marijuana, become impaired, and get behind the wheel of a car or otherwise do harm to others, and it will never be legal for kids to smoke marijuana."If elected, he would de-schedule marijuanaby executive order.He says this "would lead to a lower price for the product and eliminate the criminal element from its distribution, much like the repeal of the prohibition of alcohol many decades back."
Johnson does not advocate outright legalization of other drugs.Instead, he believes other drugs should be treated as a health problem rather than a criminal justiceproblem.He believes these steps will lessen crime in the United States, help balance the budget, increase the quality of courts and prisons,and protect civil liberties.
Issue (AD) I support Gary Johnson's views on Drug Policy.
Issue (AE) Education
On the state level, Johnson believes in "school choice." As governor of New Mexico, he sought to implement aschool vouchersystem, which he believes would transform public education into a more "effective" system.
On the federal level, Johnson believes theDepartment of Educationshould be abolished because federal control of state education funding negatively impacts the states: he claims that 11 cents out of every dollar states spent on education comes from the Department of Education, but accepting the money comes with 16 cents of "strings attached." Johnson believes that block-granting education funds to the states without strings, thereby returning all control of education to the states, is the best choice, because it would create "50 laboratories of innovation" from which best practices would emerge. He believes that theNo Child Left Behind Actand other "federal mandates" create a "terrible" system of education, and believes they should be repealed. He says that a "homogenous" national education system does not work.
Johnson believes there is ahigher education bubble, and blames it onfederal student loan programs. He believes the government should not be "in the student loan business." Instead, he supports a free market in education as a remedy to the bubble
Issue (AE) I support Gary Johnson's views on Education.
ISSUE (AF) Gun Rights Johnson opposesgun control initiatives. He does not believe in limiting the types or sizes of guns that private citizens can own. He believes theSecond Amendmentis "clear," and establishes an individual right for citizens.
Issue (AF) I support Gary Johnson's views on Gun Rights.
Issue (AG) IMMIGRATION Having served as Governor of a border state, Gary Johnson understands immigration. He understands that a robust flow of labor, regulated not by politics, but by the marketplace, is essential. He understands that a bigger fence will only produce taller ladders and deeper tunnels, and that the flow of illegal immigrants across the border is not a consequence of too little security, but rather a legal immigration system that simply doesn’t work. Militarizing the border, bigger fences, and other punitive measures espoused by too many politicians are all simplistic “solutions” to a problem caused by artificial quotas, bureaucratic incompetence and the shameful failure of Congress to actually put in place an immigration system that matches reality.
Governor Johnson has long advocated a simplified and secure system of work visas by which willing workers and willing employers can meet in a robust labor marketplace efficiently and economically. Aspiring immigrants would undergo a background check, pay taxes and provide proof of employment.
Making it simpler and efficient to enter the U.S. legally will provide the greatest security possible, allowing law enforcement to focus its time and resources on the criminals and bad actors who are, in reality, a relatively small portion of those who are today entering the country illegally.
Issue (AG) I support Gary Johnson's views on Immigration.
Issue (AH) Internet Issues Gary Johnson has often said, “There is nothing wrong with the Internet that I want the government to fix.” The Internet has literally changed the world, and has done so largely without interference from the government. It is no coincidence that the unprecedented innovation and entrepreneurship — and the resulting improvements in our quality of life — that has occurred in cyberspace has happened in one of the last refuges of freedom. It needs to stay that way.
Yet, there are increasing calls for government regulation and intrusion into the Internet. From some politicians’ suggestions of a government “kill switch” to recently-passed so-called Cyber Security legislation, the government is determined to insert itself into our freedom to communicate, conduct business and seek information via the Web.
The government is even demanding that it be granted special “back doors” into encrypted, private information held and moved by Internet providers. The excuse is security — a laughable concept from a government that has proven time after time to be incapable of protecting even the most basic data.
Gary Johnson has consistently opposed these attempts at government interference with the Internet, and as President, would return the government to the side of freedom and innovation — not regulation.
Issue (AH) I support Gary Johnson's views on Internet Issues.
Issue (AI) Homosexuality Johnson says that "government doesn't belong in the bedroom."He believes that the government should not regulate marriage at all.He believes the government "should not impose its values upon marriage" but instead "should protect the rights of couples to engage in civil unions if they wish, as well as the rights of religious organizations to follow their beliefs."
He applauded the repeal ofDon't ask, don't tell, and opined that the repeal was "long overdue."
Formerly a supporter of civil unions for same-sex couples, on December 1, 2011, Johnson voiced his support for same-sex marriage. He believes that "denying those rights and benefits to gay couples is discrimination, plain and simple."He has also stated that marriage laws should treat every individual equally.
In 2013, Johnson was a signatory to anamicus curiaebrief submitted to theSupreme Courtin support of same-sex marriage during theHollingsworth v. Perrycase.
Gary Johnson favors a federal law to legalize gay marriage across the United States, rather than leaving the issue up to the individual states
Issue (AI) I support Gary Johnson's views on Homosexuality Issues.
Issue (AJ) Stem Cell Research Johnson opposes public funding ofstem cellresearch, and instead "should only be completed by private laboratories that operate without federal funding.
Issue (AJ) I support Gary Johnson's views on Stem Cell Research.
Issue (AK) Taxes Today’s federal tax code does all the wrong things. It penalizes productivity, savings and investment, while rewarding inefficiency and designating winners and losers according to political whim. For far too long, tax laws have been used not just as a means to collect needed revenues, but as a weapon with which to manipulate our behavior, create and destroy industries and fulfill politicians’ dreams of social engineering. The result is a tax code that is more than 70,000 pages long enforced by a government agency with almost 100,000 employees. It is nothing less than a massive deployment of government force on our lives, our finances and our freedom. Governor Johnson advocates the elimination of tax subsidies, the double taxation embodied in business income taxes, and ultimately, the replacement of all income and payroll taxes with a single consumption tax that will allow every American and every business to determine their tax burden by making their own spending decisions. Taxes on purchases for basic necessities would be “prebated”, with all other purchases taxed equally regardless of income, status or purpose.
Many leading economists have long advocated such a shift in the way we are taxed, and Gary Johnson believes the time has come to eliminate the punishing tax code we have today and replace it with a system that rewards productivity, investment and savings. The IRS as we know it today would no longer be necessary, and Americans would no longer need to live in fear of the force of government being wielded under the guise of tax collection.
Issue (AK) I support Gary Johnson's views on Tobacco Control.
