Questions & Answers

1. What specific measures do you support to increase equal access to health care in Ohio?

Libertarians address a problem by first asking what government has done to create the problem or make it worse. Health care has become much more expensive since government took over. 40 years ago most doctors would treat people who had no money, and not send a bill. Now, government pays for everything, meaning more paperwork, higher costs, and people who cannot get access. The answer is to get government out of t

2. What are your views on legislation to study racial profiling by law enforcement?

Driving while black should not be a crime. The problem is how to convince a policeman that if he stops a car, he must have a reason. Some cops are prejudiced, and enjoy stopping a black driver just because he is black The best way to identify prejudiced policemen is to keep score. If we need a law to allow the police department to fire cops with bad records, let's do it.

3. What stable funding source do you support for the Ohio Housing Trust Fund?

Do we really need the Ohio Housing Trust fund? Does it really help? Every kind act by government costs. It starts with the evil act of extracting money by force. Libertarians believe the best possible product at the best possible price can be created only by the free market. Houses to rent or to buy will become more available if taxes and regulations are reduced. Don't fund it. Reduce taxes.
