If I ruled the state, I would want Arizona to be ahead of its time. As other states regress into excessive taxation, capricious regulation, and profligate spending, Arizona should move forward, breathing new life into liberty, scaling back government and safeguarding individual liberty.
In particular, a good leader should cap legislative spending, sunset non-essential programs, and assert Arizona's sovereignty vis-a-vis the federal government. With these steps, Arizona will become "as a shining city on a hill," so that when people ask, "What does freedom look like?" The unqualified answer will be: Arizona. Let Arizona become to the nation what America is to the world.
