Guy's Philosophy

My "back to basics" political philosophy will help the American people build a stronger economy ... an economy that will continue to lead the world in technological innovation.

 

The Declaration of Independence explains the basis of legitimate government, as follows: 


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.

 

The following flash video presents the Philosophy of Liberty more graphically than I can using words.  These words from the Declaration are based on 1776's philosophy of liberty, and I endorse every statement made in this video:

The Declaration continues to explain why citizens must remain proactive in maintaining their government:

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
 

The United States of America was created by free citizens who had the courage to stop an oppressive government from stomping out their basic human rights. When these great words were written, the reality of their times was not really consistent with the stated ideals.  Our republic has evolved since 1776, and the principles of equal rights has generally been extended to all persons, men and women, and to all races.  


The defense of freedom is a task that is never complete.  The Constitution of the United States, despite its initial faults, can still provide the means for our modern citizenry to limit the power of  government.  Per this Preamble, "We the People" created government, and subsequently demanded its powers be limited:


We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Words ... words with ORIGINAL meaning.  Politicians swear an oath to protect and defend these words.  Despite those oaths, the cancer in our federal government continues to grow, and public officials continue to vote "yes" for more bureaucratic scope-creep that is not constitutionally authorized.  Lawyers twist the meaning of certain words far, far beyond the original intent ... until such words as "thou shall not" now mean "at the public official's discretion".

As an official of the LP, I work hard to reestablish limits on the federal government ... to literally secure the Blessings of Liberty for ourselves, our children and posterity.
