Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Whallon's campaign website lists the following issues:[3]

  • The Economy: "Our founding fathers gave us the freest country on earth, and as a result, America became the richest country on earth. If we had a government that stuck to protecting our rights instead of managing our lives this would be possible. My goal is to enact programs that show that small government and private initiative produces the results that big government promises but never delivers on."
  • Health Care: "We should restore freedom to the healthcare field so that it can become what it should be: a vibrant innovative consumer driven high tech industry that, like the electronics industry, offers us ever greater products at ever lower prices, and whose speed of innovation is breathtaking. Imagine every year seeing a flood of new products and services that make us go, ‘Wow!’ not only by the fact that they can be done, but also by the fact that they can be done so cheaply. Let’s free our healthcare industry so it can be like that."
  • Personal Freedom: "My guiding principle is this: all human interactions should be voluntary and it is the government's job to protect us from anyone who would use violence (including the threat of violence) or fraud. Any action that doesn't involve one person violating the rights of others, should be legal, and the government should stay out of our lives unless there is reasonable cause to think that we might be violating the rights of others."
