    Spend whatever you want as long as you can pay for it in advance.

    If you don't tax, you cannot support what you have, or grow to what you need. Our economy does not exist in a vacuum. There is no person or business in this nation which is not dependent on government spending for infrastructure and social benefit programs. No man is an island, we depend on each other for society to exist.

    I oppose new efforts to increase taxes in Tennessee, whether sales tax or gas tax. I will support the full repeal of the Hall Income Tax. I further support the shrinking of spending to continue to place less of a tax burden on working Tennesseans.

    I am committed to the proposition that all involuntarily paid taxes are inherently wrong. I will work diligently for the repeal of the income tax, and for a national sales tax that is paid on the consumption of goods.​ In addition, we need to cut spending. In shrinking the size and power of government over our lives, we will eliminate unnecessary waste.

    I will not support increasing taxes or creating new taxes. We can balance the Wyoming State budget without putting a burden on our citizens. We can do this by doing multiple methods including but not limited to cutting red tape, cutting down the size of government, and using common sense budgeting methods.

    I support the elimination of tax subsidies, the double taxation in business income taxes, and ultimately, the replacement of all income and payroll taxes with a single consumption tax that will allow every American and every business to determine their tax burden by making their own spending decisions. Taxes on purchases for basic necessities would be 'probated.'
