None of our constitutional freedoms would be possible without economic liberty and the protection of private property through the rule of law. The Constitution was designed specifically to limit the power of the federal government, but we now have a government that appears incapable of restraint.
Excessive taxation and regulation—too often backed up by disproportionate civil and criminal fines and penalties—limit our choices and erode our most fundamental liberties and rights. Big government, activist liberal judges and federal executive agencies are imposing overly intrusive micro-management in our daily lives that the nation’s Founders fought to prevent.
Businesses that create jobs are finding it increasingly difficult to do so in the face of excessive government interference and obstruction, not to mention confiscatory taxation.
At the same time, the nation’s growing debt burden threatens the free market and America’s very ability to function as a self-governing, free republic.
