    – We favor the repeal of the fraudulent and virtually bankrupt Social Security system.
    – We propose the abolition of the Postal Service.
    – We oppose all personal and corporate income taxation, including capital gains taxes.
    – We support repeal of all law which impede the ability of any person to find employment, such as minimum wage laws.
    – We advocate the complete separation of education and State. Government ownership, operation, regulation, and subsidy of schools and colleges should be ended.
