California State Government November 7, 2006 Election
Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Michael S. Metti

Candidate for
United States Senator

This information is provided by the candidate

I am a concerned private citizen just like you and have come to the realization that govern- ment isn't working as intended. I see this in our schools, traffic, welfare, healthcare programs, and everything else that government is interfering with.

Every year we pay more and receive less. We're down to getting the leftovers on our pay- checks and can only own homes and cars in joint tenancy with the State. Don't believe me? Try not paying what the government demands and see what happens to your property.

Forced permits and licenses are replacing our rights. As we turn over our rights and responsi- bilities to bureaucrats and politicians, we see more dependency and less caring becoming commonplace in our society. We're categorized based on age, wealth, race, sexuality and any- thing else they can divide us up by and our money is being shuffled around based on the polit- ical shrewdness of special interest groups. It will only get worse if we continue voting for the status quo. I am offering you a choice.

Liberty and self-responsibility is what government should be protecting and promoting. Gov- ernment wasn't intended to dispense goods and services since that would be best suited for the free market. Supply based on demand not politics creates an environment of care, charity, abundance, and responsibility. Government should protect us from force and fraud from oth- ers, secure our borders, and defend our Bill of Rights. This perspective can happen for Cali- fornia with your vote.
