Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

Libertarians generally view both Conservatives and Progressives as being only too happy to use the force of government to impose their opinions on everyone else. I think people should practice more respect and tolerance for each other and less polarization.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Increase the number of employers. Reduce regulatory burden on small businesses and needless occupational licensing.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?


What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Get out of the way of people and businesses that are boosting the economy.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

Candidates from the two old parties will tell you that they will fix all your concerns if you only you would give them enough votes with a strong enough mandate to force your beliefs on the people who don't agree. Voting Libertarian means that you want to reduce that polarization with the belief that things will work out just fine if everyone would just pursue their own goals voluntarily. All the important laws were written 200 years ago.
