I, Wilton D. Alston, have an agenda.
That agenda is: personal liberty. I want to make my own decisions, be judged upon my own performance, and reap the rewards (or penalties) of that performance. I want to keep the money I make – all of it – unless I decide to give it away. (And even then I want to decide who gets it.) I'm comfortable with the proposition of handling any disputes that may arise between me and those from whom I purchase products or services. If I need to seek professional help, I'm okay with finding it. I am not worried about being foreigner-invaded, globally-warmed, food-and-drug-unadministrated or environmentally-unprotected. If I get duped into buying a "lemon" from a car dealership, I realize that caveat emptor was in full effect from the get-go. Simply put, Wilton D. Alston's agenda with respect to the government is: Leave me the heck alone.
