the state provides.
Health outcomes are
poor, despite hugely increased spending on our tax-funded Health Service.
In Education, Scotland's
traditional high standards have slipped, the unemployed young are, some
While these results
have emerged over the last 60 years, all we hear from politicians is that
they need more money. The reality is that they have - vast quantities
of it. They
have gradually taken more and more of our money - now near enough half

of the politician's efforts are observed to be poor.
We are here to fight
for the right of taxpayers to keep their own income, to question the amount
the state is spending and how it spends it. We are here to demand lower
taxes, to limits to government; allowing us choices in the provision of
social comforts, health and education.
This is a great Scottish
tradition, limited government was invented here.
We're angry about
Big Government, and we're taking action:
Lower Tax, Higher Growth, More Jobs.
