Private Property Rights: How good is the candidate at protecting the private property rights of citizens?   This evaluation matrix has a designed biased toward promoting candidates that openly talk about the private property rights and current problems with big-government that regularly infringes on such rights.  The scoring approach for this criterion is largely influenced by the historically proven fact that the bigger government gets, the more arrogant it becomes with citizens and irresponsible and capricious with citizen property and rights.

To score high on this factor, the candidate should have a direct track record of protecting property rights.  Or for new candidates have demonstrated statements in their history about their commitment to such matters.
