Herndon, VA (PRWEB) May 7, 2010
Matthew Mosley of Oak Hill, VA, has received the nomination of the Libertarian Party of Virginia to be its candidate in the election for the U.S. House of Representatives in Virginia’s Eighth Congressional District on Tuesday, November 2, 2010.
Libertarians believe in the constitutional principle that all people should be able to live their own lives as they choose, without interference, as long as they do not harm other people or their property. To that end, Libertarians call for reduced government spending, lower taxes and real respect for civil liberties.
Mosley said, “As an entrepreneur and small business owner, I believe that anyone who is willing to work hard can shape their own future. Unfortunately, millions of hard-working Americans are struggling or unemployed today due to government policies that favor special interests and wealthy corporate executives over the average working family. I am running for Congress because I believe that the innovation and drive of the American people represents the engine of our economy, and in order to grow we must reduce the size of government and lower the tax burden on individuals and small businesses.”
“Our current representative, Jim Moran, has represented the people of the eighth district in the House since 1991. Last year, he earned an F rating from the National Taxpayers Union, and was ranked #397 out of 435 members of the House for his tax-and-spend policies. Congressman Moran has openly stated that he supports the redistribution of wealth, arguing against what he calls “the simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it”.
“In a time of historic federal deficits and record unemployment, the people of Northern Virginia deserve better. We can’t tax and spend our way out of a recession. Furthermore, legislation such as the health care bill and the recently proposed financial reform bill only serve to reduce competition, create winners and losers, and reduce choice for consumers. Instead of government bailouts, higher taxes and harmful regulation, I will propose specific and immediate spending reductions. In addition, I will call for the prompt withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and Afghanistan and will propose a common sense approach to immigration reform. "
Mosley is currently in his second term on the Board of Directors of the Libertarian Party of Northern Virginia. He has served on the Board of several private companies, including Cyber Security, Inc., which he co-founded in 2000. Mosley has been employed in the information security and risk management industry since 1992, and regularly speaks at industry events as an expert on Internet security and regulatory compliance. He and his wife, Carrie-Anne, live in Oak Hill, Virginia.
