1. Individual Rights
2. Individual Responsibility
3. Minimal government intervention
4. Minimal government taxation
That's really it. Those things encompass everything else.
I'd like to see some serious punishments, as in criminal punishments, for elected officials who don't bother to show up for votes/debates or who even try to pass laws based on lies or emotional appeals. Paying people six figure salaries to vacation half the year from a job where their primary function is to lie to each other and the public is sheer idiocy.
