Why Vote for Me?

It’s about the economy

We are on the verge of a major depression if the current policies continue: Deficit spending, paying off debt by printing money, exporting our industrial base, imprisoning large portions of the population, and wasting our resources and lives on unprovoked military crusades.

The Republican President and Democratic Congress have continues on the same course like a canoe team riding the rapids to Niagara Falls.

Bad economic times, like these, call for a more comprehensive plan. Libertarians, with their support for free market reforms such as eliminating the Income Tax and reducing burdensome regulations, suggest even more ways to increase opportunities and improve the economy.

The only way to end the income tax and pay off the dept is to change policy and cut spending. The first cuts should be in areas where the Government is doing the most harm, while leaving programs people have grown dependent on (like social security) intact. Then phase them out gradually. The younger generation should be able to opt out of social security.
