Fighting Government Overreach
The Adam Smith Foundation believes that smaller government is better government.
Federal bureaucrats have consistently sought to expand their power by passing new regulations or reinterpreting existing rules to increase their authority over individuals and businesses. In addition, state and federal governments continually seek to overcriminalize activities based solely on their personal political agenda, stifling the economy and individual freedoms.
This is a direct contradiction to the free market ideals which this nation was founded upon. Instead, the Adam Smith Foundation believes government should seek to get out of the way of Americans, and we will push for efforts to rein in regulatory growth and fight government overreach.
