A Libertarian vision for Michigan
*** begin quote ***
Troy – How should we as Libertarians craft our campaign theme for 2010? Here are my thoughts on the subject. I would certainly appreciate yours, too. As a political party we must articulate a positive, persuasive, simple and appealing campaign theme for our candidates in 2010.
*** and ***
# Fair. No bail outs. No hand outs. No special deals for businesses, unions or individuals. Instead, cut spending now by eliminating all incentives, benefits, and programs that don´t benefit the average voter or business. Cut government costs by eliminating all agencies and regulations that impede the creation of jobs and businesses, competition and personal freedom. Eliminate tax abatements, exemptions and discounts for the few preferred businesses, unions and individuals, and cut the tax rates paid by all.

“cut spending now by eliminating all incentives, benefits, and programs that don´t benefit the average voter or business”
That don’t benefit “ALL” voters.
The problem is that when gooferment tries to pick winners and losers, funny how they always pick the politicians’ friends.
A libertarian government should be extremely small. Prevent force or fraud. AND, that’s IT!
You don’t need a lot of taxes when you’re not doing a lot!
Slash the spending and taxes and step out of the way. Privatize any “service” or “product” that the government produces.
If it CAN NOT be done immediately, then let’s have a transition out of it. Five, Ten, … heck … even Forty Year plans.
Let’s start the journey to liberty!
