I am not a Democrat OR a Republican —I am a Libertarian.
I believe in a limited government. Individuals should be free to make choices for themselves and accept responsibility for the choices they make. The Libertarian way approaches politics based on the principle of self-ownership — no group, government nor individual should be allowed to dictate or direct the life of any other group, government or individual.
As a proud Libertarian, I believe not only in a free market, but also in the free marketplace of ideas. We poorly represent the voice and will of the people when we restrict conversation only to those affiliated with a Republican or Democratic Party. We need fresh, independent voices if we are to rid our government offices of “politics as usual” in Missouri and beyond.
Help me broaden the public discussion so that the best ideas can be brought to light. It’s the changes you would like to see that I’ll share with the other members of the house, should I get elected.
My beliefs have been shaped by these great libertarians:
George Washington – The Father of our Country who said, “The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon.” Thomas Jefferson – The author of the Declaration of Independence who said, “We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” Ron Paul – The Congressman and presidential candidate who said, “To me, to be a conservative means to conserve the good parts of America and to conserve our Constitution.”
