Excerpt: "There are certain things only the government can provide, such as roads, police, etc. We must make sure these obligations are properly funded. The state should tax its citizens only what is needed to perform these vital functions, being very careful not to take from families more than is absolutely necessary."

Excerpt: "There is no one person that should hold a seat of power for more than a certain amount of time. It leads to a variety of problems. I do not believe there is anyone in public office that is so valuable or intelligent that they should remain in office for decades."
