TARP manipulates the free enterprise system

Question topic: Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self interest into the fairest and most productive economic system there is, and are the key to national prosperity.

Swafford: Strongly Agree

Question topic: Briefly list political or legislative issues of most concern to you.

Swafford: Our economy and free enterprise system has been manipulated by a powerful Federal government that uses programs like T.A.R.P., Cash for Clunkers or Frank-Dodd to pick winners and losers. We must get back to a true market system and remove the hand of the government from so much of our economy.

End the Federal Reserve; explore alternative currency

We need to seriously consider ending the Federal Reserve and returning to a more sound and transparent monetary policy. Let's explore alternative currency systems and end the idea that banks and businesses are too big to fail. Let's end the government's ability to artificially inflate, confuse, subsidize, protect, exclude, regulate and overall tamper with our markets.
