I believe government should be responsible TO us, not FOR us. My view is that government is necessary, but we must be always vigilant to ensure that government remains our servant, not our master. Government must be always kept in check by an aware and informed public.
When a government taxes its citizens, it is essentially taking resources of one to give to another. I believe government is, by its nature, inefficient and spends our money with wanton abandon. I feel citizens should choose what to do with their money and their resources.
Our lives belong to us, not the state. Coercive government actions such as mandatory service, warrantless searches, and intrusions on freedoms that are naturally our right from birth, are not in keeping with the Constitution or common sense.
