In order to restrain and limit government as much as one person can, if elected, I propose to begin the work of returning Idaho government to humanitarian philanthropic values by:
~Opposing proposals & legislation
which increase and complicate new taxes in Idaho.
(I support adopting a user-fee based system in Idaho, where the people who use state services pay a fee for each service provided)
"If you don't use it, you shouldn't have to pay for it"
~Adding 'sexual orientation' to Idaho's
employment and housing
(NO IDAHOAN, REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE PHYSICALLY ATTRACTED TO OR WHOM THEY SPEND CONSENSUAL ADULT TIME WITH, SHOULD BE DENIED THE EQUAL RIGHT TO EARN A LIVING OR HAVE A ROOF OVER THEIR HEAD)
Drafting, sponsoring or co-sponsoring legislation
defining clear and specific limits on
Idaho state political campaign
contributions and expenditures.
(SPENDING & RECEIVING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO CAMPAIGN FOR ELECTED OFFICE ESPECIALLY IN TIMES OF ECONOMIC HARDSHIP IS OFFENSIVE. CANDIDATES SHOULD BE ELECTED ON THE BASIS OF MERIT AND DESIRE TO WORK FOR THE PEOPLE, NOT ON HOW MUCH MONEY THEY EARN OR SPEND)
Drafting, sponsoring or co-sponsoring
legislation which REDUCES the salaries of
executive and judicial branch officials
to match the annual salary of the average Idahoan.
(NO PUBLIC SERVANT SHOULD EARN MORE THAN THE PEOPLE WHO ELECT THEM!!! PROPER GOVERNMENT IS BASED ON SERVING THE PEOPLE NOT ON A PAYCHECK)
MY BASIC PERSONAL VALUES REGARDING GOVERNMENT AND THE DUTIES OF A REPRESENTATIVE ARE:
~Good government is: defensive not offensive; simple and not complicated; a safety net not a barbed wire fence.
~Representatives are servants of the people.
~The people of district 33 are the leaders, not the people they send back to Boise.
~I believe in and want to work for ALL the people of district 33; Voters and Non-Voters, Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Christian Constitutionalists and Independents.
~I believe the people of district 33 are the most capable authority to govern themselves.
~I support the defense and the stimulation of each and every resident of Idaho District 33s individual right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
~The less Boise and Washington D.C. are a part of our lives the better off we are.
~Tax is theft. I do not and will not complicated increased tax.
~Simplicity creates transparency.
~Restrained & Limited government is best! While Idaho Democrats and Republicans talk about transparent and small government, I maintain that a government that cannot operate in the shadows or become drunk on power at all is the best kind of government; regardless of it's size or ideological position.
