My Platform

Since we don’t seem to be able to get together to form the Alberta Libertarians, I will probably run as an independent in the next provincial election.  My main purpose in doing so is that I want to be able to vote for liberty rather than some variation of tax and regulate government.  This is the platform that I would run under:

  • I have no desire to dictate how other people’s income is used. Consequently, I would support any legislation that decreases or eliminates taxes and oppose any legislation that increases taxes.
  • I have no desire to dictate what other people choose to do with their lives.  Consequently, I would support any legislation that decreases or eliminates government regulation of individuals or businesses.  I support laws that prohibit any form of assault and any form of theft. I would oppose any expansion of government regulation and bureaucracy.
  • I have no desire to live by the support of taxpayers.  I would expect taxpayers to reimburse me for expenses directly related to being an member of the legislative assembly. Any monies received over and above expenses would be put in trust for the purpose of promoting liberty. (I deem it unwise to return such monies to government where it will be misused.)
