We support economic and political freedom in the United States.

What does that mean?

Economic freedom

To paraphrase Milton Friedman, economic freedom is the freedom to produce and trade goods and services according to one’s own judgment, unrestrained by the physical coercion or compulsion of others, including the government.​​​​​​​

Political freedom

Friedman also defined political freedom as a free exchange of ideas.

No man has the moral right to stake a claim on the productive activity of another against their will.
