 OnTheIssues.org excerpts:  (click on issues for details)
Budget & Economy
    Government's role is only to determine the rules.
    Government caused Great Depression, and recessions since.
    Fed should grow money supply by 3%-5% and nothing else.
    Repeal recession spending once expansion begins.
Civil Rights
    Real freedom means freedom to promote Communism.
    Persuade against racism, but don't use coercion.
Education
    First proposed school vouchers to denationalize education.
    Subsidize parental choice of public or parochial school.
    Vouchers give greater educational opportunity to the poor.
    Merit pay for teachers.
    Subsidize college by GI Bill method, not state institutions.
Environment
    City parks justifiably public; national parks can be private.
Free Trade
    Tariffs & trade restrictions impede economic growth.
    Interfering with trade is the road to authoritarianism.
    Floating foreign exchange rate is necessary for free trade.
Government Reform
    Economic power decentralizes; political power does not.
    No need to maintain post offices as a public monopoly.
Jobs
    Fair employment practices interfere with individual freedom.
    Free choice in employment should be treated like free speech.
Principles & Values
    Free men use gov't to serve people; not to serve country.
    Socialist economics are incompatible with democracy.
    Concentrated power threatens individual freedom.
Social Security
    Compulsory retirement programs infringe personal freedom.
Tax Reform
    Lower taxes in recessions and raise taxes in booms.
    Progressive taxation intended to insure against risk.
Technology
    Private monopoly easier to remove than regulation.
