Mike Beitler is a Greensboro business professor and Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate in 2010.

He says the nation is facing record debts and deficits and the responsible thing to do is to slash spending.

"I think we need to be talking in terms of abolishing programs and agencies rather than creating new ones," Beitler said. "We're not going to be able to fund anything if you want to keep racking up debt. There's only so much you can borrow from the Chinese."

Beitler is a Baltimore native who has taught business at UNC-Greensboro for 12 years. Before he became a professor, he was a chief financial officer in the banking industry. That experience, he says, makes him a good choice to help find ways to cut spending. 

Beitler wants to abolish the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Federal Reserve, according to his campaign platform. He wants to end deficit spending and cut funding for foreign intervention.

He is the author of "Rational Individualism: A Moral Argument for Limited Government & Capitalism," which argues on behalf of libertarian ideals.

In addition to his work at the university, Beitler is a consultant, keynote speaker and host of "Free Markets," an internet-radio show on the VoiceAmerica Business Network.
As a Libertarian Dr. Beitler promotes small government, personal liberty and freedom.
