Safeguarding Property Rights and Reforming Indiana’s System

Introduction: As your next Governor, I am committed to upholding individual liberties and ensuring that Hoosiers’ property rights are protected. Let’s delve into the Libertarian justification for our proposed reforms:

  1. Abolishing Asset Forfeiture:

    • Libertarian Principle: At the core of my philosophy lies the belief that government power should be limited. Asset forfeiture, as it stands, violates this principle by allowing the state to seize property without due process.
    • Innocent Until Proven Guilty: Asset forfeiture often occurs even before an individual is convicted of a crime. This undermines the fundamental tenet of our legal system—the presumption of innocence.
    • Restoring Property Rights: By abolishing asset forfeiture, we restore property rights. Your hard-earned assets should not be subject to arbitrary confiscation by the state.
  2. Criminal Justice Reform:

    • Overreach and Disproportionality: Our criminal justice system has become bloated and punitive. Non-violent offenses should not result in life-altering consequences.
    • Focus on Rehabilitation: Rather than perpetuating a cycle of punishment, let’s emphasize rehabilitation. Drug addiction, for instance, should be treated as a health issue, not solely a criminal one.
    • Reducing Prison Populations: By reevaluating sentencing guidelines and promoting alternatives to incarceration, we can reduce overcrowded prisons and allocate resources more effectively.
  3. Property Tax Reform:

    • Libertarian Stance: Property taxes disproportionately burden homeowners and businesses. They infringe upon property rights and hinder economic growth.
    • Local Control and Accountability: Empower local communities to decide their tax policies. Decentralization allows for tailored solutions that reflect the unique needs of each locality.
  4. Transparency and Accountability:

    • Sunset Provisions: Advocate for sunset provisions in legislation. This ensures that laws are periodically reviewed and justified. If a law no longer serves its purpose, it should expire.
    • Public Engagement: Engage citizens in the policymaking process. Town halls, open forums, and public consultations foster transparency and accountability.
  5. Indiana as a Beacon of Liberty:

    • Lead by Example: Our state can be a model for others. By championing property rights, criminal justice reform, and tax changes, we demonstrate that liberty and prosperity go hand in hand.
    • Empowering Individuals: Our reforms empower Hoosiers to thrive, innovate, and build a better future.

Conclusion: Let’s dismantle barriers, protect property rights, and create a fairer, more just Indiana. Together, we can ensure that the government never takes your property involuntarily—because freedom and property ownership are inseparable.
