Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Johns' campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Taxes

  • Excerpt: "The Best way to attract business to the State of Oklahoma is to create a business friendly environment; and as we all know businesses flock to the States where taxes are low and where regulations go only as far as necessary to protect human beings; not spotted owls."

Education

  • Excerpt: "I believe in local control of schools. I am adamantly opposed to federal intrusions upon our State and our local school districts. I am in favor of a complete and immediate repeal of Common Core. With the money from this monstrosity, we can finally give our teachers the raise that they deserve."

Gun Rights

  • Excerpt: "I will protect the 2nd Amendment Freedoms from ANY State, Federal, and/or Global (i.e., UN) intrusions. The Right to Keep and Bear Arms is an Inalienable Right."

Abortion

  • Excerpt: "I’m pro-life. I believe that life begins at conception. The 1st nation to legalize abortion was the Soviet Union. It was pushed through by the Communists, under the leadership of Vladamir Lenin, who was a faithful adherent to the atheistic, Communist teachings of Karl Marx and Frederich Engels."

Illegal Immigration

  • Excerpt: "I am opposed to illegal immigration."
