Meyer's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Secure Data Privacy and Data Protection
- Excerpt: "As a result of my 30 years’ combined experience as a systems engineer, a technology lawyer, educator, and business leader, I understand from many perspectives the complex issues surrounding data protection and data privacy. I am committed to fight to put in place sound Constitutional and legal safeguards to protect the private data of all of our citizens from invasion by not just the government, but also by those who seek to do us grave harm by stealing our financial data, our health and other personal data, and critically, our identities."
- Unleash Entrepreneurial and Industrial Economic Growth
- Excerpt: "Free Market economies cannot function if they are burdened by unnecessary, unconstitutional and uncontrolled federal, state and local regulations. While a Congressman can do little to rein in state and local regulations, there is much that we can do to stop the massive over-regulation of our businesses, large and small."
- Reform Congress and the Executive Branch
- Excerpt: "I will support any legislation that requires Members of Congress, Congressional staffs, the Executive Branch and its employees to live under the same laws and regulations that our government imposes upon the rest of the nation."
- Return to the People a Constitutionally-limited Government that is not Drowning in over 17 Trillion Dollars of Debt
- Excerpt: "Our debt burden is unsustainable, and if we were a private enterprise, our government would have long ago been liquidated in bankruptcy. The massive amount of debt we have accumulated is putting at risk not only our future, but also the future of generations yet unborn."
- Restore our Promises to Our Veterans
- Excerpt: "We must meet the commitments that We the People, through our elected leaders, have made to our men and women who served under our nations flag to defend our Constitution and to keep America safe and free. It is simply unconscionable that we would take any steps to reduce the pensions of those who have pledged their lives for the protection of our freedoms."
Meyer's campaign website listed the following issues:
- No Budget, No Pay
- Excerpt: "adopt the proposal of the No Labels Organization that stops paying Members of Congress if they don’t pass a budget in a timely fashion."
- Rational Term Limits
- Excerpt: "work to amend the Constitution to provide a maximum of three consecutive terms for Representatives and two consecutive terms for Senators, but include a sunset provision."
- Significantly Amend the Voting Rights Act
- Excerpt: "either have it apply to all states equally or eliminate it entirely in exchange for greater restrictions on political gerrymandering in federal Congressional districts."
- Eliminate Special Treatment of Members of Congress
- Excerpt: "go beyond the Stock Act and ensure that every act of Congress applies the same way to its Members as it does to the rest of the nation."
- Streamline the tax code
- Excerpt: "remove special interest provisions and establish two tax rates at 10% and 25% for both corporations and individuals, with an income threshold for individuals at least 4 times the poverty level before the 10% rate kicks in."
