Campaign themes

Black has stated, "I am a firm believer in the free market, and I am sure that anyone reading this right now has a pretty good understanding that what we now have is NOT a free market. It is heavily regulated and heavily taxed, so much so, that many would-be first-time business owners are completely discouraged and quit before they even start. I also believe the State of North Carolina needs to fight back against unconstitutional federal regulations as well! It is high time the States stand up for their citizens and their rights under Amendment 10 to the Constitution of the United States. If we wish not only to survive but to thrive, then we must take back our liberty, restore the free market and put the federal government back in its proper place by making it fit inside the boundaries the Constitution outlined for it!"[2]
