The American Dream is your right to become prosperous and successful without government interference. Achieving the American Dream is done through your hard work and not the government’s work.

I am a strong believer in the government staying out of the private sector. To quote Ronald Reagan, “Government isn’t the solution to our problems. Government is the problem.” The government’s role is to ensure a fair playing ground for businesses to operate.

That does not mean that the government cannot assist the economy during hard times, such as in a depression. The government, in control of the money supply, has the organization and power to reduce the impact when the economy is under attack.

Monetary policy dictates that when a sizable portion of the American workforce does not have employment, the government’s duty is to add money to the system. I support such governmental powers during such times.

However, every President since Franklin Roosevelt has added to the national debt. Many Americans see the addition of national debt with each administration and want to see it reversed. And the current pandemic is adding trillions more. If elected, I will work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to reverse our national debt.
