“Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state lives at the expense of everyone.” - Fredric Bastiat (1801-1850)
As your representative, I will fight at every opportunity to reduce or eliminate taxes.
I support the repeal of the state income tax in favor of a single flat tax. Your income is your property and if government forces you to relinquish your property, are you truly free? To ask the question is to answer it.
Government, through the income tax, has in effect, laid claim to the fruits of your labor.
This progressive and unnecessary form of taxation goes fundamentally against the principles of a free society, and I believe it is government extortion, and immoral.
We know the income tax is unnecessary because the following states do not have an income tax: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming do not have an income tax.
Want to keep more of your own property? Let’s add Georgia to the list!
As your representative, I will fight to repeal property taxes.
If you fail to pay your property taxes, the government will seize your property and you will be evicted. In other words, you do not truly own property and are simply leasing it from the government. Government has once again laid claim to your property and forces payment through taxation.
How can we be free when we cannot live on our own property without paying rent to the government? To ask the question is to answer it.
As your representative, I will support a flat tax only in the event that the state income tax and property taxes are eliminated.
Consumption taxation is the most moral and fair form of taxation, which allows the citizen the freedom to choose if, what, and how much they wish to consume. This method of levying taxes has the added benefit of incentivizing savings and conservation over consumption and waste.
