More Freedom

Our elected officials should not be picking winners and losers in our economy or our justice system. There soul role needs to be about leveling the playing field and making sure that anyone regardless of gender, sexuality, income status or age can have the opportunity to pursue their dreams uninhibited by big government and big business.

True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

-Legalize gambling
-taxpayer rebate fund
-convention of states

More freedom starts with one simple word, Choice. I am the only candidate running for South Carolina Senate District 37 who is Pro Choice, Pro-Marijuana, Pro-environment, and Pro-gambling. The fact remains that just because you make something illegal, doesn’t mean you stop the action. In fact, in most cases it just goes underground un-regulated, unrestricted and untaxed. Our elected officials should not be picking winners and losers in our economy or our justice system. There soul role needs to be about leveling the playing field and making sure that anyone regardless of gender, sexuality, income status or age can have the opportunity to pursue their dreams uninhibited by big government and big business.

Governments need to have a clear idea of their main goals in legalizing marijuana or gambling. Why are we legalizing marijuana or gambling? Are we battling the black market? Are we dealing with equity issues within criminal justice? Are we simply trying to maximize revenues? Or are we simply trying to legalize something that we know people are already doing? The fact is hundreds of millions to billions of dollars are being brought in already in other states throughout this country. Of course there are issues of taxation, implementation and policy but In the end revenue is being brought into the bottom line of those states that have decided to legalize.

I believe true freedom is doing whatever you want, where ever you want, with whomever you want, for as long as you want…….as long as you are not infringing on another person’s liberty while your doing it. This is why I am South Carolina District 37’s senate candidate who is pro-choice, marijuana, environment, and gambling.
