Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Bouchat's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

1. Limited Government

Our nation became great because our Founding Fathers believed in a small less intrusive institution of governance. For us to achieve that again, we must repeal and reduce taxes upon the working productive people/businesses and reduce the amount of free benefits we give out to non-productive citizens, who are capable of being productive members of society.

More capital in the hands of the private sector generates investment, employment, self-worth, profits, increased tax revenue, increased consumption and reduces government dependency.

2. Personal Freedom

When individuals are allowed to be themselves without fear of the government snooping into their personal lives, private behavior and opinions, they excel as leading contributors in their communities. Fear of our governments intrusive practices, such as having access to our electronic communications in writing and whereabouts by our technology foot print destroys the American spirit of greatness enjoyed by those that made this a wonderful country.

3. Free Market Economics

Obamacare or as it is ironically titled "Affordable Healthcare Act" is the most egregious example of the destruction of the free market and its negative impact upon our lives. Like most people I know, my health care has jumped in cost 50% since the beginning of the year and will go up another 25% next year. This behavior by our political leaders is constantly repeated over and over again with the good intentions of trying to help us, only to cause us more harm, poor service and inflated cost. Government does not and can not perform better than the private sector when individuals have the ability to shop un-obstructed for goods and services in the free market driven by investment, service performance and profitability. Regardless of whether it is done by the federal or state government, the principle is universal.[2][3]
