This campaign is a referendum on patriotism and longsighted vision.Â If you wish to help solve the countryâ€™s financial problems and reasonably reduce the size and scope of the federal governmentÂ now, please read on.Â If not, youâ€™re wasting your time.Â We cannot have a strong country if our financial situation is perilous.
The main objectives of the campaign are to:Â (a) reasonably reduce the size and scope of the federal government, while solving the nationâ€™s financial problems; (b) limit the powers of the Executive Branch to those granted by the Constitution; (c) increase the power of individuals and states; and (d) simplify the tax system and change the U.S. entitlements system so the U.S. can potentially last indefinitely.Â We need to head back towards our roots, in terms of less regulation, less entitlements, less foreign intervention, less debt, and more personal liberty and responsibility.
Cutting to the chase: Our system does not work on a long-term basis.Â Rather than let the ship continue to sink, I think we should rescue it.
Republicans have/will set a target of spending cuts that simply wonâ€™t work on a long-term basis (while proposing tax cuts), and Democrats wonâ€™t seriously cut spending at all.Â In other words, we need to get to a total of $X of spending, and Republicans are at X + a large figure and Democrats are at X + a larger figure.Â If X is $6, the Republicans will argue for $7 while the Democrats will argue for $8.Â A compromise at $7.5 equals failure.Â We need people who will act to make changes that will get us to $6.Â Pie Chart of Spending 2011 (PDF)
We have DIRE problem with FRED.
We need to put FRED on a diet.Â Who or what is FRED?Â FRED is federal:
- Foreign intervention
Why a Libertarian instead of a Republican or Democrat? Â Unlike them, Iâ€™ll supply solutions that will work. I believe in maximizing individual liberty, so that to the maximum extent possible without jeopardizing other personsâ€™ rights and freedoms, any individual should be able to decide how he or she wishes to live.
