Taxes: Is the candidate a careful steward of the citizen’s resources–or not. This evaluation matrix values candidates that openly talk about government excess and presume when politicians claim they need more tax revenue–there is likely more to the story. This designed bias in the evaluation process is largely driven by the historically proven fact that the bigger government gets, the more arrogant and aggressive it becomes with citizens taxing citizens–mostly productive citizens.
To score high on this factor, the candidate should have a direct track record of promoting lower taxes, smaller government, encourage business growth, fiscal responsibility and accountability. Or if a new candidate has demonstrated such attitudes in their history.

2 = Below average history on taxation control or states questionable and below average positions on taxation control.
