If I do run, I figure I may as well make it clear what I stand for and what I will do now as opposed to when everyone is campaigning. Supply and demand. If the supply of campaigning is high and the demand is low because people are annoyed by it, its price (effect on potential voters) is very cheap.
When supply is low, effect is higher. Or something like that.
So, in the event that I run on Moshe Feiglin’s liberty list for the next Knesset elections after these, and the party will have primaries (I assume, do not know for certain) and you become a member of the as-of-yet nameless Liberty Party, here is why you should vote for me when the time comes:
In the event that I become a Knesset Member on Moshe’s list, I promise:
1) Never to take a SINGLE SHEKEL from your stolen tax money in salary, subsidies, or anything else. Not one. Not for travel, expenses, no government car or gasoline, nothing. I will continue doing my current work in the private sector, and any voluntary contributions towards supporting me that come in I will accept. If the Knesset forces a salary on me I will donate the whole thing to Feiglin, or else destroy the money publicly every month, returning the inflation to the people. Whichever I feel like doing at the time.
2) I will vote AGAINST any law that raises taxes, decreases liberty, makes the Israeli government bigger, more powerful, or increases the amount of money that goes to its coffers in any way.
3) I will vote FOR any law that lowers taxes, increases liberty, shrinks the government or its power.
4) I will not be subject to any coalition discipline whatsoever. I will be loyal to no one, not even to Moshe Feiglin in the event that I disagree with him on any given issue, and I will vote my own conscience every single time without exception regardless of the consequences.
5) I will make quite a show, and I promise my Knesset speeches will be entertaining.
Let’s see what the future holds.

Do MKs have enough *time* to earn a living on the side?
God would see to it that I earn enough passive income to both earn a living and be an MK.
Since when did writing laws become a full-time job? The Texas legislature is constitutionally barred from convening more than every other year, and only for portion of it. The New Hampshire legislature members are paid $100 per year and it is considered a part time job. Would that the Knesset restrict its law making thusly.
You forgot one issue that is bigger than all of the above: End the Fed…I mean the Bank of Israel.
That is subsumed under #3. My approach to that will simply to be submitting a bill to allow taxes to be paid in gold and silver, and allow private monies to be manufactured and distributed tax free. Then the Bank of Israel is powerless. I think that would be easier to pass than to simply end the bank. But hey, if a bill is submitted to end the Bank of Israel I will vote in favor, absolutely.
