After looking over the other candidates, I’ve decided to run for president. Considering I’m under-aged, I guess I won’t get many votes. Oh, well, it’s just something to do, I guess. Below is my platform. I’ll be updating it as I think of more issues to add and discuss. Disagree with any of it? I’m open minded — let’s discuss it.
The Shaun R. Connell Platform
The Purpose of the State
The state is but a business of persons organized to unleash force upon others. It can be used for either good or bad — usually bad. The political business has no moral abilities except those abilities which the individual has, for the political business is, at root, a collection of individuals.
Government should not violate the negative rights of the people, and should use all tax monies to the general cause of protecting and securing the negative rights of the people. The negative rights that exist are life, liberty and property.
Political force for anything not related to securing the negative rights of life, liberty and property are of a tyrannical and dishonorable nature, and ought to be immediately ended.
