A LIBERAL CAPITALIST -- YOU BETCHYA
First Do No Harm.
I cannot offer radical tax cuts in social programs until my fellow capitalists and Libertarians are all contributing enough to private charities for the homeless and poor -- to the point where government assistance is no longer needed.
Every necessary expense for families -- medical, food, rent or mortgage should be tax deductible. Tax cuts are always good.
GO EASY ON BUSINESSES!
High taxes are driving businesses away.
Salem needs to question all programs, especially those awarded to friends of government officials. Welfare for the rich is wrong.
RIGHTS AS INDIVIDUALS
Any individual's property rights should be free from regulations, unless owners create a nuisance to neighbors.
We also have rights to our souls. Consenting adults should be free to live as they choose without government interference.
I uphold the right to self defense.
The intent of public schools is to give children an equal opportunity. Legislators need to improve public schools first.
However, public schools only give random results, while private schools give mostly successful results to children of wealthy families. To equalize the playing field, a $4000.00 portion of the students' public education could be transferred to the private school of the parents' choice, creating opportunities for non-wealthy families. But the devil is in the details: Planning must provide careful payments schedules and retributions against possible swindlers.
ENOUGH ABOUT ME
Enough "preaching." A state representative must know what you want, so please mail me a list of 3 "wishes." Then, give me your vote this November, and we can go from there. Thank you.
