Statement: Rod Rieger is a fiscal conservative with the firm belief that small government is the better alternative to large government. Budget and government transparency is crucial. Tax dollars should not go to any private organization unless that organization was hired for a particular task. Every bill should be of one subject and that subject shall be contained in the title. If something is good, it should pass on its own. Washington State should lower taxes and cut spending to help Washington become more business friendly, bringing companies and work into Washington, rather than forcing them out. Rod also believes the State should further explore less conventional teaching methods such as: speed reading and proven memorization techniques. He also believes more emphasis should be placed on teaching the State and US constitutions and the Declaration of Independence. Rod will never trade his liberty for security, because liberty is his security. If it is unconstitutional, Rod will vote no. If it adds to the debt, Rod will vote No. If it expands government control, Rod will vote no. If it takes away liberty or freedom, Rod will vote no.
