Empower Parents to Educate Their Children
Education is far too important to leave in the hands of Raleigh politicians and bureaucrats. Parents need more options on how to educate their children. I will work to implement a tuition tax credit scholarship program to free parents from the grip of the government school monopoly.
Get Out of the Way of Job Creation
Politicians like to boast that they create jobs. But far from being job creators, politicians are more frequently job killers. High taxes, burdensome regulation, and uncertainty about what politicians will do next causes serious damage to North Carolina jobs. We can move North Carolina forward by reducing taxes, eliminating burdensome regulation, and reducing licensing requirements that stifle entrepreneurship.
End Corporate Welfare
The General Assembly likes to substitute its wisdom for that of the free market by offering tax incentives to lure big companies to North Carolina. Not only is this bad economics, it’s a slap in the face to the thousands of small business owners who must compete with the tax subsidized big boys.
Institute a Moratorium on the Death Penalty
North Carolina’s use of capital punishment is broken. While some perpetrators are truly heinous, the risk of killing a prisoner who is not guilty is simply too great. North Carolina should end the use of the death penalty.
Protect Individual Rights
Government serves only one purpose. That purpose is to protect each person’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Native or immigrant, gay or straight, black or white, all people have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I’ll work to repeal the marriage amendment. Constitutions are to limit government, not people.
As a Libertarian, I hold one core philosophy. You should be free to live your life as you see fit as long as you do not harm another individual.
I hope you will consider casting your vote for me on November 6th. I am committed to liberty for every person in North Carolina.
