I have a few questions I am asking candidates to identify their fundamental ideas about rights, politics and government. If I get any responses I will post them.
1. Currently, the market in health care services is severely restricted by government monopoly. Do you believe doctors have the right to run their own business, choose their own patients and charge their own fees? If not, what is the moral principle you rely on to restrict the natural rights of doctors?
2. Do you believe citizens have the right to use their own money in exchange for any health services they want and can obtain in a free market? If not, please identify the moral principle you rely on to deny citizens this right.
3. Do you believe citizens have the right to own their own property, free of all encumbrances and charges that others may wish to impose, no matter how large the group? If not, what moral principle do you use to override the right of individuals to property.
4. Do you believe it is moral for the rights of individuals to be overridden by whichever group can assemble a majority vote? If so, please identify the moral principle you rely on to support your position.
5. Do you believe individuals have the a natural liberty to peacefully pursue their own goals in life, so long as they respect the same right of others, and the right to keep all of the values they produce through their own efforts? Please elaborate as much as possible.
