Statement

I am a firm believer in a free market system. Every citizen deserves the opportunity to pursue his or her dreams. Every worker should have the freedom to demand the highest wage; every business should have the freedom to demand the highest price for its product; every consumer should have the freedom to demand the lowest cost on a product or service. However, none should have the legislated right to do so, because a government that acts as though those rights need to be specifically granted also has the power to decide to take those rights away.

Among the other inalienable rights of our constitution is the pursuit of happiness. There is no right to have it. When we begin to guarantee one's happiness, the free market system suffers. As a worker, I cannot demand the highest wage from my employer and then expect that employer to provide me with the cheapest product or service.

I will do everything possible to avoid any additional taxes, on any front. I will do everything I can to reduce and eliminate current taxes. I will do everything I can to reduce or eliminate government regulations. I will support efforts to get government out of businesses better left to the private sector.
