Economic Development Vision Statement

As a Libertarian candidate for Indiana Governor, my vision for economic development is rooted in the principles of freedom, individual liberty, and minimal government intervention. I believe in creating a thriving economy by reducing the tax burden, fostering a competitive educational system, and protecting property rights. 

In contrast to the current path, which often relies on heavy taxation and government planning, my approach emphasizes personal responsibility, market-driven solutions, and a government that protects individual rights rather than dictates personal choices. This vision will lead to a more prosperous, free, and vibrant Indiana for all.

Abolishing the State Personal Income Tax

As your next Governor, I am committed to collaborating closely with members of the General Assembly to comprehensively examine and address the issue of personal income tax in Indiana. My goal is to strategically evaluate the impact of such a change on our state’s economy, revenue, and citizens.

Currently, Indiana imposes a flat 3.15% tax on personal income. However, I recognize that nine states have successfully opted not to tax personal income, and I believe Indiana should join their ranks. These states include Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming.

These changes will not only simplify the system but also result in substantial savings by reducing BMV administrative costs.

  1. Budget Freeze Proposal: I will formally request the Indiana General Assembly to enact a four-year freeze on the State budget, commencing with the budget session in January 2025. During this period, I advocate for a rigorous halt to any new spending initiatives and firmly oppose any tax increases.

Reducing State Agency Spending by 10% Annually

As your next Governor of the State of Indiana, I recognize the critical importance of fiscal responsibility, especially in challenging times. The pandemic year of 2020 underscored the need for prudent financial management. During that period, the Governor’s office took decisive action by issuing a memorandum directing every state agency to reduce spending by 10% - 15% for 2021.  With this in mind, I will issue annual Executive Orders for every state agency to reduce spending by 10% based on their spending for the previous year.

Introduction: During the pandemic year of 2020, over one million Hoosiers faced job losses due to government-mandated business shutdowns.

The Libertarian Approach: As your next Governor, I propose comprehensive reforms to enhance our unemployment insurance system, focusing on efficiency, innovation, and individual choice:

Position as a Pro-life Libertarian

As a Pro-life Libertarian, I firmly uphold the Non-aggression Principle (NAP) as the cornerstone of my political philosophy. 

Introduction: As a Libertarian and a staunch advocate for individual liberty, I believe that the NAP serves as our guiding light. The NAP asserts that the initiation of aggression—whether physical force or coercion—is always illegitimate. It recognizes that every individual possesses inherent rights to life, liberty, and property. 

Conclusion: Being pro-life does not contradict libertarian principles; it reinforces them. By embracing the NAP and advocating for the rights of all individuals—born and pre-born—we can build a society that truly respects life and freedom.

Empowering Hoosier Education

As we step into 2024, I remain steadfast in my belief that our Hoosier children are our most precious natural resource. Unencumbered by ties to corporations, unions, or government agencies, I am committed to shaping policies that empower parents to make informed decisions about their children’s education. While I am not “anti-public education,” I advocate for transformative changes. Our current policies, I believe, lean too heavily toward government control and lack the family-centric approach we need. It’s time to Give Education Back To The Parents.

As your next Governor, I will be dedicated to fostering an educational environment that equips our young people with practical skills and prepares them for successful futures. I want to address a critical aspect of our educational system: vocational education.
