Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Gail K. Lightfoot

Candidate for
United States Senator; Libertarian Party

This information is provided by the candidate

"I have a vision of the proper role of government. My vision (and that of other Libertarians) is expressed in the American Declaration of Independence. "We hold these Truths to be self evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness + That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, . . ." A partisan campaign is the best place to discuss such ideas. As your senator, I could put those ideas before the American voters again and again."

"Nothing would give me greater pleasure than to spend just six years in the Senate working on bill after bill reducing the size and scope of government, restraining government intrusion into our lives and working actively to Restore Our Republic and the American Dream."

"Our Constituion is being slowly and surely destroyed. Laws covering every aspect of our daily lives, regulating everything and anything you touch are tne norm not the exception.

"The issue of government trying to legislate a perfect world goes on and on. Libertarians know utopia is not an option. It is time to reduce laws to a few simple ones most, if not all, of us can understand and follow easily. Remove the violent prone to where they cannot harm others and leave the peaceful to live their lives in harmony and abundance in a truly free society."
