I’m not a knee-jerk conservative. I passionately believe in free markets and less government, but not to the point of being a libertarian.
The Bible must be considered as the great source of all the truth by which men are to be guided in government as well as in all social transactions.
Government is taking 40 percent of the GDP. And that’s at the state, local and federal level. President Obama has taken government spending at the federal level from 20 percent to 25 percent. Look, at some point, you cease being a free economy, and you become a government economy. And we’ve got to stop that.
Most Americans aren’t the sort of citizens the Founding Fathers expected they are contented serfs. Far from being active critics of government, they assume that its might makes it right.
My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.
