Keep it Simple!

The Declaration of Independence was all about liberty. The American Revolution was all about liberty. The Constitution is all about liberty, and the Bill of Rights is all about liberty. Obviously, the founders intended the US Government to be all about liberty.

Instead of getting bogged down in the minutiae of arguing over the merits of a particular candidate, legislation, regulation, tax, or other government action, we should ask one question, and one question only: "Does this action enhance or diminish individual liberty?"

If the answer is "enhance", then we should do it. If the answer is "diminish" (another word for "infringe") then we cannot, and must not do it. It's as simple as that.

It is imperative that we keep the national dialog centered on that single, simple question, and honest answers to it.
