Gaylon Kent
Libertarian For Congress
From Colorado's 3rd District
Friends, here are four things I want for our country. I hope you want them, too.

1. An America At Peace
- Our country has been at war continuously since 1989 with consequences as widespread as they've tragic. We are mired in hatred, violence and destruction both here and abroad. The time has come to see the world produced by an America at peace. 

2. An America With An Economy Anchored In Low Taxes And Free Markets - I favor a flat tax of no more than ten percent on citizens and an even lower one for businesses. Lower taxes will give us more money to spend and businesses more money to meet consumer's growing needs. They will have money for expansion and to hire more people and to pay them better wages.

3. An America That Does Not Convict The Innocent - This nation has released over 700 people from prison for murders they did not convict. Over 140 of these have been released from death row. For a nation conceived in liberty, these numbers are shameful.

4. An Empowered American Electorate - Every challenge facing this country can be met - squarely - by concerned and conscientious citizens like you and me - we the people - taking an interest in our government. I believe, and I hope you do, too, that the government we want is as close Election Day. All we have to do is go and get it.
Gun Control
- A constitutional right is a constitutional right. We would not allow the government to tell us when we could worship.
- If we would not allow limits on our First Amendment rights, why are we allowing them on our Second Amendment rights?
Gaylon On The Issues

Low Taxes and Free Markets
- Our economy is still in the tank and it will remain in the tank until it is anchored in low taxes and free markets.
- It is time for a flat tax of ten percent on our nation's citizens and businesses and a tax return we can fill out on a single sheet of paper.

Foregin Policy
- We will not have a peaceful world until we have a peaceful America. There is no substitute.
- America must give other nations the dignity of conducting their affairs without US interference. When we do, people will stop flying airplanes into our buildings.
- The time has come to see the world that would be produced by an America at peace.
Death Penalty
- Over 700 convited murderers have been released from prison because it has been established they were innocent, including 152 from death row.
- It is not reasonable to believe this nation has not executed innocent people. It is time to end the death penalty.
What I Want For Our Country
- The government must stay out of the abortion debate. Prohibiting abortion will not eliminate it, it will merely create more criminals.
- I had 13 years of Lutheran schooling and I have the highest level of resepct the views that forbid abortion. However, just because something is legal does not make it mandatory. No one is obligated to have one. 
On The Air 
Drug Legalization
- What we do in the privacy of our own home is our business, not the government's.
- Besides, all prohibiting drugs do is make criminals wealthy. By legalizing them, we will eliminate the violence associated with drugs.
Gay Marriage
- For a nation conceived in liberty, we could do anything else but allow gay marriage.
- When we deny liberty to one segment of our society, we are making them, and us, second-class citizens. Either all of us are free, or none of us are free.

Our Responsibilities As Citizens
- We cannot expect more out of our country until we start expecting more out of ourselves.
- Only an America with demanding and participating citizens will deliver the government we deserve.
- We will always get the government we elect, and the government we want and deserve is never farther away than the next election.
Health Care
- We allow the free market to provide food, clothing and shelter, we should allow it to provide our medical care, too.
- Doctors and health insurers are entitled to the same access to a free market other businesses have. With a free market - and without government regulation -  the quality of care will rise, innovation will increase and costs will come down.
- Our nation has always benefited from the immigrant's work ethic. Let's continue to do so by making it easier to live and work in this country, and let's make it possible for those currently here illegally to do what they came here for - earn a living - without having to bother with citizenship.
