Adrian Wyllie Featured at Jupiter Meeting
“Fiscal Responsibility, Limited Government, Free Markets – sound familiar“?
This is how Libertarian Governor candidate Adrian Wyllie began to describe his governing principles and those of his party.
The real wedge issue today is not left versus right but tyranny versus liberty. We are heading toward a cliff and the only difference between the mainstream parties is how fast they are driving.
An adherent of the 10th Amendment to the Constitution, as Governor he would resist the encroaching power of the federal government, even to the extent of rejecting all federal regulations and taxes on businesses that confine their activity solely within the borders of the state. If the feds ever came here to confiscate our guns, he would arrest the federal agents who tried – calling out the national guard if necessary.
Regarding the signing of bills into law, he would use three criteria:
- Is it constitutional?
- Is it affordable?
- Is it the proper role of government (as opposed to some “nanny state” measure)
Pointing out that Rick Scott has significantly increased the state budget while he has been in office (current proposal is larger than what Russia spends on their military – around $74B), Mr. Wyllie has plans to cut it by 30%, returning sales tax revenue to the counties to take pressure off property taxes.
In favor of legalized marijuana, he predicts easy passage of the ballot amendment in the fall.
Candidates present at the meeting and working the room with their petitions were five of the seven remaining candidates for CD18 – Carl Domino, Brian Lara, Ilya Katz, Alan Schlesinger and Calvin Turnquest.
Jupiter Council member Wendy Harrison was also in the audience, as was St. Lucie County GOP Chair Bill Paterson, who gave us an update on the RPOF position on Common Core.
