Today, governments at every level are overly interfering in too many facets of American life, from the bedroom to the boardroom. They are also ineffectively performing core functions — collecting taxes, reducing poverty and homelessness, contributing to a healthy economy, improving education, and ensuring that entitlement and public employee benefit programs provide needed benefits without bankrupting future generations.

Reason in Government is dedicated to reversing these trends. We believe that all levels of government should be reformed to improve their effectiveness and efficiency while simultaneously preserving the personal and economic liberty of their citizens. We educate citizens and promote civic engagement to these ends.  We advocate for more reasoned government, with a particular emphasis on improving local, state, and federal policies that impact Santa Barbara County and its communities.

We are the voice of the “radical center.”  Please join us.
