"Maximize the Economy, Minimize the Government".

Why are you running for Governor?

I'll make California's economy roar to life by cutting spending by 50% by transferring government schools to private managers thereby paying off debt while eliminating or cutting taxes. Government shouldn't provide services that business people can provide nor interfere in markets. I'll replace government welfare with private charity so taxpayers aren't forced to pay the bills of illegal aliens. I'll get government out of the insurance business (worker's comp crisis), the power business (blackouts), and try free market solutions to reduce traffic jams.

Why should Californians should vote for you?

I advocate big improvements for California while the other candidates suggest small adjustments.
