Whereas, I believe in fiscal discipline and that government should not pose an unnecessary burden on taxpayers; and,
Whereas, I believe that government should not grow faster than population and inflation; and,
Whereas, I believe that government should be accountable to the people;
I support the following principles:
- Annual spending growth, on all levels, should be limited to the rate of population growth and inflation.
- Excess revenues collected above this limit should be used to create Emergency and Budget Stabilization funds and when fully funded, additional funds should be refunded to taxpayers through tax cuts.
- Moreover, tax and spending increases must be approved y the people's vote or a legislative supermajority.
Therefore, I pledge to Defend the American Dream.
