Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Bolton's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Balance Budget

  • Excerpt: "A True Balanced Budget should not have any type of debt in it and if it does it should be collateralized against a sellable asset."

Educate Children of Illegals

  • Excerpt: "As a country, we want our population to be well informed and capable to make decisions. So we must conclude that education is indeed the best way to address this situation."

Merit Unions

  • Excerpt: "Labor unions represent employees during negotiations with employers. Unions assist workers in getting better pay, benefits and increased safety on the job."

Respect Our Forefathers

  • Excerpt: "​​In our time we face more complicated issues than ever before, but it is our duty as citizens to keep informed on the issues and to exercise the privilege of voting."

Drug Crimes Misdemeanors

  • Excerpt: "We have a prison system that is overrun with minor drug offenders. These minor drug crimes typically do not constitute the sentences given. Citizens caught in these crimes are tarnished forever in social standing, losing the right to vote, or get living assistance such as food stamps or public housing."
