I believe that the least government is the best. I propose bringing down the tent of government, step by step, in a way that benefits everybody. People have a right to life, liberty and property. I suggest loosening land use regulations to give a quarter acre of land to every young person. I propose creating a 100% tax credit for donations to new private colleges with admission and financial aid conditions the same as community colleges and state colleges.I propose enterprise zones where the land is free, there are no taxes and there are no regulations except those directly involved with the environment or worker safety. As a libertarian I am sensitive to what the heavy hand of government can do to the lives of people. I believe people want to be free.

Musgrave for California State Senate


Candidate 2010
California State Senate
(Far North Coast)

They tell us repeatedly that we must choose between a left and a right.I would like to suggest that there is no such thing as a left or right.There is only up and down.Man's dream - the ultimate in individual freedom or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism.That's something our fore fathers sought to minimize.They knew that governments don't control "things".When a government sets out to do that it must use force and coercion to achieve it's purpose.The government has some charge it can bring against any family or individual it chooses.Many families and individuals have their tales of harrassment. Somewhere a perversion has taken place.Our natural inalienable rights are now seen as a dispensation of government. And freedom?Those who would rather live on their knees than fight back don't speak for the rest of us.You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.We believe that we have the ability, the dignity and the right to make our own decisions and determine our own destiny.
