Minimum Government, Maximum Freedom
This Platform will show what we show, who we are, and why we are doing what we do to represent the Libertarian party candidates.
1st Issue: Government Finance and Spending-
We as Libertarians support the passage of a “Balanced Budget Amendment”, to the U.S. constitution, saying that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, NOT by raising taxes. Government should not be in debt, it puts a burden on our future generations. What we mainly stand for on government spending is reduce taxes, spending, and eliminate controls on trade.
2nd Issue: Gun Control-
We need to affirm the right to keep and bear arms, and repeal all gun control laws and regulation of weapons. Libertarians just like your normal people and they want walk the streets calmly, peacefully, and safely. Law enforcing citizens should not need anyone approval or permission to be in any peaceful activity. “Gun ownership, by itself, harms no other person and cannot morally justify criminal penalties”.
3rd Issue (current): Fiscal Responsibility- When the Democrats controlled the Congress, they had spent a lot of money on entitlement programs, and pork barrell spending. Soon after the Republican party had gained the congress back, and ended in nothing beneficial also like the Democrats. And as you had guessed it Democrats regained the control of the Congress, and surely they added to the government’s debt that grows larger by the day. “It’s time that we start expecting our representatives in Washington to act with the national checkbook as we do with our family checkbooks.” Wes Benedict
4th Issue: Immigration- Currently an estimated 12 million people live in the U.S. without authorization, 1.6 million in Texas alone and is growing dramatically every year. Immigrants cross the border illegally or overstay their visas, because there are jobs waiting to be filled and they decide to take that opportunity. And each year our economy creates 100s and 1000s of new jobs every year, and these illegal immigrants are taking up these jobs especially for example Texas or fast-growing states, when people in our country need such jobs or opportunities to support his/her families. As Mr. de Soto concluded: "The law must be compatible with how people actually arrange their lives."
5th Issue: Taxes- The Libertarian party is trying everyday mainly to cut your taxes! Lately, in the past few decades government has more than doubled in government size, stating that there is no space for you or your businesses to be free from grasps of the agonizing politicians. But it certainly does not need to be that way any longer. It will be easier to build new homes, and to start our future generations futures’ off with a good start. With the help of the Libertarian party we can lower your taxes, have less of a government, and you can finally keep your hard earned money that you deserve.
