Less Government / More Freedom / Principled Policy
Before I even consider a piece of legislation, it will have to filter through a simple 3 question test.
1. Does it increase the size and scope of our federal government?
2. Does it infringe upon our freedom as citizens?
3. Is it unconstitutional?
If the answer to ANY of the questions above is yes, then I will not support the legislation regardless of party, political pressure, or special interest investment.
If the answer to ALL of the questions above is no, then we can begin to determine if it is principled, effective, and essential policy.
