Bill Slantz

I am not a Democrat OR a Republican —I am a Libertarian.

I believe in a limited government. Individuals should be free to make choices for themselves and accept responsibility for the choices they make. The Libertarian way approaches politics based on the principle of self-ownership — no group, government nor individual should be allowed to dictate or direct the life of any other group, government or individual.

I am a candidate for Missouri State Representative, District 105

If elected; I will immediately propose legislation for the following:

LOCALIZE EDUCATION:

If elected, I will sponsor and work diligently to pass legislation to reject all federal mandates on and funding for schools in our state, including Common Core and Every Student Succeeds; end all state mandates on local schools; end all regulations and restrictions on private and home schools; close the state Department of Education; and cut taxes by the amount saved.

ELIMINATE THE STATE INCOME TAX:

If elected, I will sponsor and work diligently to pass legislation to eliminate the state income tax and return every dollar to taxpayers by cutting state spending by an equal amount.

END THE FAILED DRUG PROHIBITION:

If elected, I will sponsor and work diligently to pass legislation to end the drug prohibition; pardon, release from prison, and expunge the records of all non-violent drug ‘offenders’; end arrests and SWAT raids on suspected drug ‘offenders’; and cut taxes by the amount saved. In the interim, immediately reclassify marijuana the same as wine and beer, subject to the same freedoms and responsibilities.
