A message from
Libertarian Party Candidate
for Governor of the State of Indiana
Life, Liberty, Property, and the pursuit of Happiness, as defined by the Individual...
As Governor of the State of Indiana, I will work with the Indiana General Assembly for all Hoosiers to:
- reduce your overall tax burden by eliminating the state individual income tax and the personal property tax on your primary residence,
- pass Constitutional Carry in Indiana, and
- reform our criminal justice system and invigorate our economy through decriminalization and legalization of all forms of cannabis in Indiana.
We must all work together to ensure that our rights described in the Ninth, Tenth, and Fourteenth Amendments are protected. Government must be kept within its limits, as defined by The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
Every Hoosier has equal protection under the law to operate their business, attend religious observations, and provide an income for their household, without fear of government shutdowns or mandates. Every Hoosier should be able to decide for themselves as to how best take care of themselves and their families.
The available data shows that businesses and churches should have never been shut down and that our entire economy should reopen completely and immediately. The current "plan" for reopening is not supported by any science and appears to be completely random.
Currently, over 900,000 Hoosiers have filed for unemployment insurance since the beginning of March 2020, many of whom are still not receiving their benefit payments. This is both unacceptable and inexcusable. We cannot ignore the severity of the economic instability into which the entire State of Indiana is now immersed.
As Governor, I would propose that the Indiana General Assembly pass legislation to ensure that a Governor never has the unilateral power to shut down our economy again. I will not mandate the shutdown of businesses, churches, or schools. I will not mandate the wearing of masks. I will not mandate vaccinations. I will end any such Executive Orders upon taking office. Hoosiers must be well-informed and be allowed to make their own choices as citizens, not subjects.
Every Hoosier business provides the necessities of life to those who depend upon it for their livelihood.
All Hoosiers are Essential!
