Judge Andrew Napolitano is a staunch advocate of Jeffersonian principles. Intelligent, accomplished, and well-known, he has a good chance of being elected.
Short-term goals: defeat President Obama’s candidate and derail the assault on freedom.
A Jeffersonian governor who is well versed in the law and who has great friends in the media would be a great leader in the fight for individual rights.
As governor, Judge Napolitano could assert to the Federal Government and to the Courts that the principle of individual rights is not subject to a public vote and that capitalism is the only economic implementation of political freedom.
He could proclaim that businesses and workers should not pay any federal taxes or fees, and that the State Government would protect them from tyrannical Federal agencies and laws, like Antitrust. He could assert State Rights, and would give to the Federal government only 1/50th of the Defense Department budget.
He could fight to eliminate or phase out State laws or policies that violate Rights. He could phase out coerced welfare and State taxes.
These acts would attract businesses, entrepreneurs, and productive citizens. These would lead to prosperity-explosion in the State.
Other States, like Virginia, could follow suit, leading to a concerted effort to rein in the government.
