Report: the Republican Liberty Caucus Position Statement:
Source: Republican Liberty Caucus Position Statement
    As adopted by the General Membership of the Republican Liberty Caucus at its Biannual Meeting held December 8, 2000.
  • WHEREAS libertarian Republicans believe in limited government, individual freedom and personal responsibility;
  • WHEREAS we believe that government has no money nor power not derived from the consent of the people;
  • WHEREAS we believe that people have the right to keep the fruits of their labor; and
  • WHEREAS we believe in upholding the US Constitution as the supreme law of the land;

    BE IT RESOLVED that the Republican Liberty Caucus endorses the following [among its] principles:
  1. The tax system of the United States should be overhauled.
  2. There should be a national debate discussing various alternative means of taxation including but not limited to a single flat income tax, repealing the income tax and replacing it with a national sales tax, and reducing spending to the point where the income tax can be repealed without the need to replace it with a national sales tax or any other form of taxation.
  3. The capital gains tax should be *eliminated*.
  4. The inheritance tax should be *eliminated*.
  5. The new tax system should be implemented *promptly*.
