Free Trade & Free Markets
I support the removal of governmental impediments to free trade.
As Senator, I was identified as a "free trader" by the Cato Institute's Center for Trade Policy Studies, based on my pro-free trade, pro-market, and anti-subsidies voting record.
As President, I will continue work to strengthen our position in the world through free trade and diplomacy.
I favor a free market health care system. I recognize the freedom of individuals to determine the level of health insurance they want (if any), the level of health care they want, the care providers they want, the medicines and treatments they will use and all other aspects of their medical care, including end-of-life decisions.
I believe that People should be free to purchase health insurance across state lines.
Monetary & Tax Policy
I support an audit of the Federal Reserve, and a halt to inflationary monetary policies. Individuals engaged in voluntary exchange should be free to use as money any mutually agreeable commodity or item.
Taxation should be kept to a minimum, and never exceed what is needed for the limited and enumerated federal powers under the Constitution. It is especially immoral when used to fund illegal and unjust wars.
Our current federal tax code is the result of the manipulations of those with outsized power and influence in Washington, who have written in loophole after loophole, ensuring that the burdens of taxation fall upon those who can least afford it. In order to solve this problem, we must first address our out-of-control federal spending.
