I believe in individual freedom. I believe that each individual should be free to live their life as they desire so long as they do not infringe upon the rights of others. To paraphrase the Declaration of Independence, I believe that all people are created equal and are born with inherent rights. Among these rights are “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” I also believe that the government was instituted to secure those rights and derives its power “from the consent of the governed.”
I believe in minimal government. Government’s role is to protect and secure individual rights.
