  • Excerpt: "Yow has stated that he "firmly believes that economic growth via the free enterprise system is the basis of true freedom for all Americans. He believes that excessive government regulations, unnecessary fees, wasteful government spending, burdensome over-taxation and frivolous lawsuits are endangerments to personal liberty and improved quality of life for all South Carolinians. As a fiscal conservative, Richie will support lower taxes, favorable capital gains policies, tort reform, targeted waste/fraud reduction legislation and meaningful government spending reform at all levels."
